Glancing down at the odd shadow from his bite mark, shrugging gently as he looks at the others a bit oddly "It will pass...." Just ready to follow the lead of the others, staying in his transformation as long as he can, lightning still gently coursing over his claws and between his tusks.
Rutah will move back towards the group. "I'll wait until you are all okay to move forward but be aware of that one dog in the entrance of the cave, like I said earlier I am unable to tell if it is alive or dead." He waits to see if the group is ready to move forward before approaching the cave again.
Once Rutah is only a few feet away from the dog, he notices the dog is still alive, but its breathing is taxing and irregular. Rutah’s foot lands in a puddle of blackened blood with a quiet splash, but the dog barely reacts to the sound. Its breathing quickens slightly, which only causes its wounds to bleed out more. The dog’s ribcage does not seem to move with its breathing and there are puncture holes along its side.
Ruth turns his head to the side and tells the group, "It's wounded badly, but still alive." He then looks a bit closer at the body to see if it is also affected in the same way as the other dogs, with the rotted flesh and black ooze. Perception: 6.
OOC: I would like to move up to 10ft away from the dog if possible, don't want to stand right next to it.
Dreel nods in agreement "Nasty as these creatures look...they don't deserve to suffer anymore than they have with whatever is causing all this." Still not wanting to draw too close since he was still feeling the effects of one bite.
Jaylen continues to stare and point at the creature allowing the magical essence to flow from him, when suddenly a ball of fire flies past him.
Ignus prepares a firebolt, but hesitates for a moment. Considering what happened last time he hit the corrupt creature with fire, this might not be a good idea. The momentary hesitation nearly causes him to miss the motionless creature lying on the ground. However, as the fire bolt connects with it, a whoosh of hot flames rises from the dog. The dog struggles for a moment before coming to a final stillness. The flames continue burning, temporarily covering most of the caves floor.
[OOC – Everyone except Dreel roll DEX Save. Clipclop with disadvantage because he is poisoned. Assuming Dreel stayed outside the cave while trying to keep a distance from everyone?]
