    Mateo tries to lurch himself forward, using the creature gripping his leg as a pivot to escape from the one trying to hamstring him. If the move is successful, Mateo will wind up lying on his front and apparently hampered that way. That won't work as the hamstringer is the one wrapped around his leg. The toxic sliver is successful, though Mateo's unconcerned, for now anyway. The dazed vampiric sliver is Mateo's more immediate worry- whilst it's harmless for now, it won't be soon. So Mateo will do something about that- he moves his arm closer and bites at it, trying to return the favour and slurp its blood until it's dry. Unless the blood starts rotting his face off, anyway. This might have the added benefit of helping Mateo recover from his wounds as the blood is converted to fresh, healthy tissue- notably, around the bite taken from his arm and his crippled leg, though Mateo tries concentrating it on his leg. It'd be more successful if the slivers were humanoid, but Mateo's used to using the blood of animals after particularly challenging fights.
    Forest

    The vampiric sliver's blood is thick, brown, and full of disease, but it is in fact blood, and will work to fuel Mateo's regeneration. However, it will take quite a while to drain it entirely of blood, as the substance moves sluggishly at best. It doesn't intend to go down quietly either, recovering from its reeling and lashing out at Mateo's stomach with its bony claws, trying to make a new pair of wounds through his intestines.

    The other continues slashing at his legs, trying to make as many rotting wounds as possible when it see that he's healing from the first. It's swinging erratically though.

    Yellow KNEW there was something wrong with these things! They might have looked like humans, but they certainly aren't! When the Hermit splits the yoshi uses the momentum he still has to drop into a roll, bouncing back to his feet again some distance forward. If the Manic had aimed at where Yellow was that might make pouncing him a little harder.

    Now they're all doing that double image thing. Just like those stupid Magi-Koopas. Well! This yoshi knows one way to deal with that trick!

    With a "bNOM!" Yellow lashes out his tongue at the leaping Manic in a bid to nom him to death!. Should the tongue hit anything solid it'll quickly yank the poor creature into Yellow's mouth for swallowing.

    And of course anything swallowed by a yoshi has its bio-mass absorbed in a fraction of a second. Getting eaten is almost certain death.

    HOWEVER!

    If the tongue attack fails Manic's assault will strike true, bowling Yellow over backwards and wrapping a pair of tails around his neck. Though the claw attacks will be blocked by Yellow's Buzzy Bracers as he brings them up to guard his head.
    Beach

    The attack is partially successful, because as the tongue lashes out the manic sliver splits further, letting the tongue hit and pass through one version of itself and then having the other carry onwards to the yoshi's neck where it will wrap its tails around it at last. However, with the tongue in easy reach the sliver makes the mistake of trying to slash at that instead, most likely getting caught by the sticky thing after all.

    The yoshi can try to reel it in, but whether or not that's possible with the tails around its neck remains to be seen.

    The wooden one ducks low, slithering forward and trying to get level with the yoshi's belly and looking for any joints in the armor it can stab at. If there's nothing else, it will go for the inventory belt, trying to cut the strap with a quick slice.

    The oily one lays there, being defended by the waxy one while she recovers. It seems hunting in twos is their preferred style.

    Mateo will heal himself as much as he can, though the new wounds on his legs aren't helping there, he withdraws his fangs and reaches up to try and snap the Vampiric Sliver's neck. Hopefully that'll kill it- its blood was foul, though the disease can't do much to Mateo, but he'll need to see a doctor before feeding on any humanoids. He glances down to assess the damage caused by the Toxic Sliver and notes the wound in his gut. Not as though he needed those organs anyway. He also can't walk- he hasn't got enough legs left for that. He slashes out at wherever it looks like the Toxic Sliver will put its head next, his sharp-as-glass claws growing another few centimetres as Mateo diverts blood to that instead of healing.

    Damn.

    A shiver of movement runs through the trees all around as the treant's rage manifests. It had hoped for an easy kill. Instead it appears it's landed a spellslinger of sorts, perhaps even one that could pose a true threat to the living tree.

    But only if she can find it first. The treant is well camouflaged as long as it stays stationary, the only mark that might possibly distinguish it to even the most observant eye the ever-so-subtly lighter shade of it's bark compared to other trees nearby, and it intends to use that too it's advantage.

    Although the treant cannot access it's magic while it lies dormant, it can control any of the trees connected to the vast web of interlocking roots that it's woven throughout the glade to, for instance, cause the one nearest to Spreagadh to spontaneously animate and bring one of it's heavy boughs crashing down in an attempt to crush her.

    Wandering the Grounds

    Red might just have found the fight he's looking for.

    Up ahead, on the sprawling plains that seem to stretch on for as far as the eye can see, a herd of miniature elephants lies at rest, drinking from a small oasis and sunning themselves in the dry savanna air. All of a sudden they stop dead in their tracks, ears perking up, those lying down getting to their feet.

    A rumble reverberates through the ground and they flee as fast as their stumpy little legs will take them, just as the ground only a short distance away explodes in a burst of upturned dirt and dry desert sand, an enormous beetle the size of a house crawling out of the fresh-made pit in the earth.

    BLAM!

    The bullet punches through the monster's chest, resulting in a low reverberating roar from the beast that makes the ground shake! There's a good chance its organs are all messed up since the thing is... well... all messed up.

    It charges blindly in the direction the shot came from, thrashing at the grass angrily!

    [Beach]

    The yoshi makes a gagging noise as his neck is constricted! Though the poor sliver may find its entire upper body getting dragged into the yoshi's mouth.

    Yellow will then aim to wrap his claws around the base of the sliver's tails and REND them apart. If the tail is sheered off the sliver will probably be swallowed easily. Though if not even being inside Yellow's mouth will expose the sliver to absurdly caustic digestive enzymes that can reduce a full grown koopa to a protein slurry in under a minute.

    Dear gods yoshis are scary...

    As for the armor... It's built in typical full-plate style, vital organs all fully encased in a cuirass of Buzzy Beetle carapace. Areas that require more flexibility are protected with Chain-Chomp Mail backed by Koopa leather and Lekitu cloud padding. That would be the best spot to aim a stab, though it might be hard to stab all the way to something vital.

    Truth be told the yoshi's unarmored head and neck are the best target.

    Or the belt for that matter.

    SLASH!

    Right through the belt!

    Pulling it off shouldn't be too hard at this point. Yellow is distracted with the whole not getting strangled to death thing.

    Rosy sees it coming and dives out of the way. She rises and swings the riffle onto her back, brandishing the monstrous double barrel again.

    Come'ere you right messed up...

    She fires again, the gun unleashing a torrent of shot usually intended to drop elephants. The kickback staggers her momentarily.

    kaBOOM!

    If the weapon hurls enough metal to take down an elephant then this gibbering heap of flesh probably won't fair that much better. A sizable chunk of the monster is turned into chunky salsa, though that doesn't stop it from continuing its charge!

    Seems a hole large enough to park a small tricycle in blasted into the monster's chest isn't going to kill it.

    At least not right away.

    With a horrible gurgling screech it attempts to thwack the hunter!

    I say!

    The creature knocks her down hard but she is back on her feet quickly, wobbly, but standing. She was not expecting the beast to survive the hit, honestly. Few things have in the past. Her face, however, shows an invigorated enthusiasm rather than shock or fright.

    Well then, chap, it seems that look of yours isn't all bluff and horror. Right then, have at me.

    She drops the gun and unsheathes one of her knives and takes the machete in the other hand. She dances back for a moment before throwing the knife at the beast's face. Not waiting to see if it hits, she charges forward and swings the machete into the hole, trying to maximize the damage already done and perhaps do enough to cleave beast in half.

    Knife in the eye!

    The beast once more roars with rage as it swings again, missing this time around due to the hunter's fancy footwork! Oh. And then it gets a big hunk slashed out of its side.

    SPLORCH!

    Geeze...

    That injury is pretty darn horrific...

    Bleeding all over the place and everything.

    Must mean it's time for the monster to heft both of its claws into the air and swing them down with enough force to smash the hunter into a pulp!

    Regardless of whether or not the attack strikes true the monster will then keel over dead.

He smiles and loads the fantastic rifle. The Inspector then heads off to the hills to get a better look at the dragon battle in the desert.

    The shot aims true and the arrow pierces the brain and also hits the fireball in the mouth causing an explosion inside it. The Shen Gaoren dies instantly with its claws falling to the ground.

    Red spots something of interest and having the impulse of a child he shape shifts into a body made from blades all over made of black obsidian and catapults himself into the house sized beetle as it emerges from the ground. If it hits and pierces Red should be able to cling to the beetle.

    She does her best to dodge the blow but the close quarters and swiftness of the blow are too much. She does, however, avoid a lethal hit. The attack comes down hard on her shoulder, dropping her to the ground. She rolls to avoid the falling body and lays for a long moment in agonizing pain. Slowly she gets to her feet.

    Her shoulder blade feels broken. Not a grand start, though she feels overall positive about the exchange.

    A fine show, old chap. Pity it ended so poorly for you.

    She pulls the knives free of the carcase and wipes them clean in the grass. She gathers her dropped gun and hangs it over her good shoulder with the riffle. No sense using a gun with a bad arm. Instead she keeps the machete in hand and makes her way across the plane, keeping low and doing her best not to broadcast her location to any wild beasts nearby. She is in search of water to clean the scent of blood and gore off of her before it attracts unwelcome attention.

    Savanna

    The monolith beetle, still in the process of hauling it's cumbersome weight up and out of the pit-trap to pursue the fleeing cannon elephants, has no particular way to avoid Red as the demonic shapeshifter launches himself at it.

    But while the creature's weighty shell might hinder it in the fields of agility, it more than makes up for that defecit with iron-clad defenses that an attack as ineffecient as a long-range jumping strike cannot hope to pierce. Red simply bounces off the beetle's shell, likely breaking a few of his spikes in the process as obsidian is a notoriously brittle material.

    Shaking itself to free it's black and yellow-streaked carapace from any clinging dirt, the beetle finally hoists itself up onto the plains and begins turning to face Red, vile-looking orange sludge dripping from it's mandibles.

    Adir laughs at the fellow's primitive nature. Not to be insulting, he merely thinks it amusing that someone thinks his high explosives are magic. That's quite new to him.

    "Oh, yes, powerful magic. I wave my hands and mumble C4, C4, then things explode on a whim!" He says theatrically, still grinning like a fool. He glances toward the Shen Gaoren's smoking corpse, wondering if Grantz's spell made it good to eat. "I'll, uh, take that brain if you don't mind, Mister Grantz. I just came for a trophy, but a few thousand gold won't hurt my pockets," He steps toward the crab and shears off a piece of meat, spearing it on his dagger. The young buck looks at Grantz chummily. "I'll cook you lunch as thanks, if you want. You like seafood, or were you just gonna sell all this?"

    Lightning strikes the ground nearby the pair, a brilliant flash of light. After a moment, they will be able to look and see a pair of items on the ground - a suit of armor, plates for the brave stag, apparently made from the Shen Gaoren itself. the helmet is even made so that it can be put on from the back of the head, allowing slots for his antlers. they shouldn't hinder movement at all from their impeccable design, and given the strength of the creature's shell, these aren't weak plates either

    The second item is smaller, and is separate from the armor - a curving dagger with runes etched along its side that somehow manage to evoke an image of a panther. It's obviously magical, glowing with a soft blue light.

    This time the beetle counter-attacks when Red makes his leap for it, spitting out a huge spray of acidic bile at the now-slimy shapeshifter. Assuming he somehow evades the blast mid-air or is simply tough enough to survive the virulent toxins though, he'll land on the beast's shell and stick this time.

    Seeping through the beetle's carapace will be tricky though. As most of it's innards are nothing more than huge, organic factories for the caustic spittle the creature uses to tunnel and hunt, it's shell has naturally adapted to be very resistant to acids in addition to physical attack.

    It's still not immune by any means, so Red should be able to melt and absorb enough of the shell to form a small blade within maybe ten seconds, but actually burning away enough to attack it's vulnerable fleshy-bits will take much longer. 'course, the beetle isn't about to stay still for a full ten seconds either, starting to thrash about in an attempt to throw Red off as soon as it realizes what's going on.

    Red smiles, if a piece of slime could smile, and takes the acid shot head on. As the acid hits him he absorbs it. That acid should give him one Poisma spell. Red lands on the bettle and slimes over to the shell to absorb some beetle shell. Doing his best to stick to the beetle. Given enough time if red is deep enough he will use the poisma spell on the beetle. Poisma damages the target with the flow of time and will last depending on the beetles vitality it also lowers defense.

    She's morph about halfway; tail, claws and teeth out and most importantly her wings.

    That makes it and many fall down trying to shake of the paralyze. At last one or two managed to avoid it and try to attack her landing there strings into Cat's flesh wings or whatever they can reach.

    "I love any food that is edible, I have a huge appetite! I also have a friend named Red that has an appetite like me. C4 huh? Never heard of that spell. Guess I'll take the chunks of the skull then."

    Some thing suddenly came from the heavens. With the shock of light Grantz forgot himself and his companion Amir. Careless of the consequences he grips the dagger in hand.

    As I said, it will take time to eat away enough of the beetle's shell to get to the vulnerable bits, time being an especially scarce resource on any battlefield.

    Feeling the unwanted passenger clinging to it's hide, the beetle retreats, scuttling back down a ways into it's hunting tunnels. Unless Red detaches very quickly or before the beetle can get underground at all, he'll soon find himself trapped between a rock and a hard place as the beetle begins slamming it's back into the walls of the tunnel, trying to crush Red or at the very least scrape him of it's shell.

    The good news is, if he can survive being repeatedly slammed into the ground with immense strength, Red should have absorbed enough shell material by now to form a dagger or maybe some claws out of it!

    Red gets slammed repeatedly and becomes somewhat dizzy. Parts of his slime form was scraped off to the earth. Red will become noticeably smaller when he uses his child form. Having stayed long enough a dagger was made. Red stabs continously at the bettle hoping to make a hole to get inside before he gets more of him scraped off.

    The dagger has a nice and warm feel to it - if Grantz were to wave it at something, a blade of force would shoot from the tip, streaking towards whatever it was aimed at. This Grantz knows once he takes a hold of the handle.

    Adir opens his mouth to speak, but is interrupted by the blinding flash of lightning. Which is most certainly an act of god, given that it's 90 degrees and sunny out today.

    The stag, a little stunned by this turn of events, watches Grantz approach his reward and take it for himself. Confident that these artifacts aren't dangerous, he takes the armor for himself. "Dude, this is great!" He's never even seen armor that looked like it was really meant for him. Adir slips his new helmet on, finding it to be the most comfortable he's ever worn. He begins donning the rest of the gear in short order, stripping his upper-body fatigues and replacing it with the Shen Gaoren's plates. "So we really do win stuff!"

    of rotting meat and eldritch grace
    and looked upon his primordial face
    and from my thoughts could not erase
    that sense of time that sense of space
    and my heart the darkness did embrace.
