Naralex drifts calmly sideways before landing neatly on the roof of a nearby building. Then he carefully extracts a thin book from beneath his robes, opens it, and starts writing, apparently completely unconcerned by the notion that somebody might attack him again. To be fair, it doesn't look like Aurora's attack did any damage.
The male gnoll arrests his flight in midair with an annoyed jerk of magic, and returns fire at Aurora with a blast of clinging green flame. Surprisingly, it does seem to burn Aurora - most likely its actual effect is acidic rather than pyrotechnic.
The priestess ignores Aurora, turning instead towards Stewart. "Ah, you've decided to show up early? All the better." She makes a dismissive wave of her arm, and black lightning smashes down on Stewart (and Eenyrl, and Kailyn, both of whom had opted to come along for the ride.) Though visually (and thaumatically) impressive, it doesn't seem to have accomplished anything.
The gnoll snorts. "Yes, I suppose that would have been too easy. Very well." She adds something in gnollish - a simple order for her followers to kill Stewart.
A second flick of her wrist unleashes a burst of dispelling energy, though again it is has no obvious effect.
The behemoth ponderously turns around, acting on the priestess' orders. A thunderous blast of lightning (the real sort, not fake negative energy lightning) erupts from the dragon head grafted to its front. Eenyrl and Kailyn simply dodge; Stewart is not quite so quick. The blast also happens to destroy the coccoons of two more gnolls - and, incidentally, kill the gnolls who were inside.
Fortunately, there are two quite solid constructs between the behemoth and Stewart, and it is unable to follow up its magical assault with physical blows.
However, there are still three undead gnolls who are more than happy to carry out their mistress' command.
The first one's charge is interrupted by Kailyn; the unicorn simply steps into its path, blocks the incoming axe with his animated shield, and plunges his horn into the chest of his attacker. There's a flash of holy energy, and then all that's left is a crumpled shell of white gnoll fur.
The second one goes down in an explosion of burning bones as Eenyrl detonates a flaming arrow inside the ribcage of its skeletal mount. It'll be on its feet again in just a few moments, sure, but for the moment is quite inconvenienced.
The third manages a simple ride-by attack with its axe, ending somewhere that's not in a direct line with Stewart and the behemoth. Of course, the axe goes swishing harmlessly through the edge of the ectoplasmic membrane Stewart summoned to defend himself, but it's still better than its two fellows managed.
The one gnoll Ametrine was attempting to question manages a sort of a panicked expression, looking between all of his coccooned brethren, and this small yellow dragon floating nearby, and Stewart, and the priestess - and then pulls out his bow and retreats to take cover around the corner of a nearby building before taking a potshot in the general direction of Stewart.
Perhaps he'll be more amenable to answering questions now that he's a bit less in the main line of fire...
