Re: Notes from 05/28/2020 - Frostbite bites it

The white had landed next to the Thane and provided a large target for me. I obliged, covering him with acid a second time. I then switched forms and took out my bow. Sedon used eldritch blasts. Eclipse called lightning repeatedly. Amaroth spewed abuse at the white, mocking his ancestry and his line...
