Mira

With the Rathian starting to properly flee and her generator at full capacity, Mira didn't see much point in holding back anymore. Thus, she took up a quick stance, turning back to the direction of the incoming roar and bracing herself, all while a pool of shadowy Magra started to form around her. She'd be prepared for whenever this new arrival set down.

Mira activates Full Moon: Restriction Release, giving her infinite Magra for four turns. In addition, she also uses Lunar Stance, canceling the next attack made against her and striking back for 6d8+3d6+14 damage.

Despite it having far less resilience than she was used to, the creature still proved hardy enough to keep its head. Brynn grimaced, knowing full well time was running out. There was only one option left.

She pulled Arisen back, adopting a low stance poised to thrust. Bymildrilar closed her eyes, and when they opened a moment later, the twin desert suns had truly become like miniature stars. Blooms of faint blue mist billowed from her fanged maw as her entire body tensed, the full brunt of her draconic power straining against the humanoid form forced to contain it. What sounded like a woman's scream soon morphed into the deafening roar of a fully grown dragon, and shortly following it was a massive boom as Brynn stepped forward and unleashed every once of the power she'd called forth.

Arisen became a blur of rapidly accelerating silver that was simultaneously in her hands, breaching the very sound barrier, and yet also in the sky, peircing the Rathian's sternum with the same ferocity. Brynn could not, would not stop there. She redoubled the power of her grip upon the blade and wrenched it downwards until it slammed into the scorched earth with enough strength to sink both it and herself into a small crater, sending ash and debris in all directions. The transposed section of the blade followed likewise, slashing down the length of the Rathian's body in what looked to be an act of unbridled brutality, but in truth was intended as mercy.

But what is mercy to a dragon? Especially one too young to understand its full strength.

Brynn uses Sunder the Mountain on the Rathian's Torso, dealing maximized weapon damage (6d10Maxed+14=[74]). She is aiming to destroy major organs and finally grant the poor thing death.

The climb up the cliff, while strenuous, is fairly uneventful. It sounds like there are some animals panicking among the mushroom forest at the lowest elevation, but that's far from being a problem. . . probably.

When they reach the top, they see a sort of sandy canyon, with the walls being composed of stacked shelves of coral. They just keep going up, more walkable surfaces interspersed between mossy cliff faces and sheer drops. More signs of their quarry are here, the same birdlike footprints looking somewhat fresh in the soft sand. The walls bear several scratches as well, as if some beast repeatedly clawed at them.

Kraken takes a quick look around, inspecting the claw marks to see if it was indeed their quarry and after a moment coming to the conclusion that it was. He mutters mostly to himself, "Clawing surfaces isn't a typical behavior of avians... Perhaps it's ill or injured? Or maybe this is typical behavior and it does so to maintain growth...."

After a few moments he shrugs and looks back to the Imperial. "Well, I'm not sure why our target id doing this, but given the evidence so far I believe it would be nesting at a high point in the area but one that doesn't require the making of a nest. Don't suppose your ship sees anything like that, like a mountain peak or a cliff for instance?"

"There are several peaks in the area, but unfortunately the Renown's sensors aren't precise enough to pick out specific life signs at this distance.  We'll have to climb up and check them ourselves, I think,"  He looks at the claw markings speculatively, "I'm no xenobiologist, but it strikes me that we can't be certain the claw markings on the walls and the footprints came from the same creature.  Or if it is truly an avian, rather than some strange flying reptile or mammal.  We'll simply have to stay vigilant as we move, until we can lay eyes on the thing."

Cell's shoulders drop at the sign of even more cliffs to climb, or rather to wait for everyone else to climb safely.  He managed to even produce a sort of grinding metal-on-metal groan in place of a sigh.
While the rest of the party looks for tracks Cell wanders toward the stacked coral to see if he can scrounge up any useful materials.

Kraken nods. "Well, regardless of what form of life it takes... In hindsight we probably should have asked about common fauna in the region... Anyway whatever made the claw marks likely wasn't under threat at the time. Hm, maybe we should split up? One team investigates what was down at the mushroom forest while the other investigates the upper levels?"

Haunter leaps upon the Rathian's back, driving its spiked limbs in once more for [26] damage.

IP peppers the wyvern with gunfire, ripping open even more holes in it for [30] damage.

Brynn slams her own blade down through space, crushing her with a strangled cry for [74] damage. The Rathian falls from the sky with a thunderous impact, kicks her legs once, and then is still.

The Rathalos arrives just in time to see this. It roars furiously, flames leaking from its maw. Rathalos is enraged! Rathalos will move first.

However, Newton makes off with one of its hunting tools, obtaining a bauble of Toxic Talons.

Mira releases her power and prepares to counterstrike.

Cell finds a few assorted herbs and bugs. He obtains Glowmoss, a Thunderbug, three Null Berries, and two Herbs.

Seemingly completely unaware of the danger of the second, rapidly approaching dragon, the spider straightens its legs to stand as tall as possible and turns on it's green light and turns to face it.
Hurry up, would you?
Current Form: Target up to 2 enemies. They gain +7 init, but all dice they roll become one size smaller, and they subtract Rainbow’s SYN (10) from all damage they deal until the end of Rainbow’s next turn.

There was no way to fix this. She knew it. With grim resolve Brynn picked up Arisen again, fully prepared to weather the brunt of this new assault. She may have dishonored herself already, but she'd be damned if any of her comrades came to undue harm because of it.

Brynn attacks the Rathalos' Head with Arisen, dealing 6d10+14 damage.

IP simply lowered her pistol and instead threw her tomahawk at the beast.

IP uses her tomahawk, dealing 2d4+STR+|User INIT-target INIT|/2 damage.

HP: 70/72
Duality: 0/24 Healing
24/24 Damage! All healing will be increased by 30% for the next three turns.

Newton uses Doooodge to hurredly refresh his dodges, back to capacity of 2.

Newton's eyes dart around.. looks like everyone is mostly healthy.  There should be time to set up for later.  The undead crow then begins flapping wildly, beginning to dart around randomly.

Mira uses Lunar Stance again, preparing to counter an attack if she is hit. She also uses Cell repair as well, healing herself for 7d6+12 HP by using "4" Magra. She has 3 more turns of unlimited Magra.
