Christian quickly analyzed the Horned Viper Murderer and reaffirmed his position, so he could start making calls.
The stares from his peers created an invisible pressure but he kept his calm.
Intertwining green and purple scales of the bottom half, crowned and outwards scales; the most notable part was the tail that extended from its body.
Christian was absolutely sure that the monster was the Horned Viper Murderer but there was a new additional part to the body.
Two stubby little arms protruded from the torso and held control of the earth.
His first guess was that the beast experienced a new mutation or ate a precious herb that could've caused the new limbs to form but finally contributed it to one thing.
The name of the beast.
Horned Viper Murderer implied the meaning that it would be able to kill vipers and snakes yet that did not explicitly state the monster had to be of the same kind.
Christian had been too caught up in the books and the rumors and guessed that the limbs were considered useless by the writers' of the books.
This meant the limbs shouldn't play too big of a part in the battle.
'It's all the same at the end'
Calling everyone, they began their plan
"Get into the formation we planned yesterday. Be aware of your teammates and harm a general spot to attack."
Christian selected his people that would follow him and rushed towards the battlefield first.
Beasts began to disappear as the Summoning Magicians began to conserve their Mana. Fighting will slowly take away resources that they had to make sure could be maintained.
Every ounce of Mana could be used to help those injured.
People began to follow Christian's lead, chasing after him after distancing themselves.
The raid had already begun while the Horned Viper Murderer was still ignorant of the herd that was currently chasing after him.
Any threat emitted by the group had no effect on the beast as it still casually walked by.
A town had already fulfilled the hunger it felt which was why Christian's group didn't seem attractive for a meal.
Christian gladly took advantage of the town's sacrifice and hoped to use it to the fullest.
Forming a circle around the monster, Christian initiated the battle.
5 Magicians stood out with their colorful robe that suited the element they were the most adept in. Stepping out of the groups they were once in, they were now the center of attention.
Chanting an incoherent spell to most people's ears, a line gradually appeared beneath their feet that connected with the Elemental Mage next to them.
It began to accelerate as the line soon connected, forming a circle and creating a sphere that trapped the beast.
Noticing the change of environment, the beast began to hiss at its opponents after realizing the threat they were to it.
The Qi fluctuation was off putting, causing the Horned Viper Murderer to get hasty in its movement.
Christian saw the antsy moves and decided that all his preparations were done after he checked everyone was in position.
Commanding his men, they ran forward to get a surprise attack off.
Enchanting Magician began to focus on their allies while the Martial Artists aimed to look for any weaknesses.
Christian's group watched the chaos ensuing that reminded him of his childhood.
The roar of battle that evoked the desire to win and be the one standing amongst dead corpses.
Enemies that would kill, **** or loot your kingdom are gone in an instance because of your decisions. A threat that was gone meant another night of good night sleep.
At first, it would be difficult to accept this but time is the testimony of your strength.
To the west, the group had to defend against a tail that came rushing towards them.
Most that were close to the Horned Viper Murderer grabbed hold of the body and mounted it to gain a higher ground.
Others quickly hopped out of the way while keeping an eye against the potential threat of flying scales.
The head made a move as well as it turned to the east and quickly struck its mouth towards the people.
Seeing the jaws of death looming closer to their death, they naturally moved away to the side however the toxins from the breath of the Horned Viper Murderer proved to be very effective.
Some people began to feel nauseated however it only dulled their senses as adrenaline made them overlook that fact.
Christian saw that the Horned Viper Murderer moved in an exact 90 degrees rotation, avoiding his group.
He thought that it may have been a coincidence so he continued his attack without worrying his companions.
Charging and forgetting his previous thought, Christian's group had already approached the Horned Viper Murderer's left eye.
Others continued with the plan from beforehand and didn't care about what Christian was doing. They focused on the scales before them.
Stabbing and cutting, the method proved to be inefficient if they used their normal tools for the job. Taking out their strongest weapons, their strikes seemed more powerful however no gigantic progress was done.
A few people stuck on the lizard searched for any weak scales that may be hidden, similar to a turtle's belly.
Instead they were thrown out with ease that allowed the Horned Viper Murderer to move much more freely.
Christian's group was currently in mid air, aiming for the eye that was the most visible weakness of the beast.
Weapons unsheathed, morale at its highest, Christian thought the battle would soon be done as long as the battle went smoothly and everybody kept to the original plan.
If the beast had intelligence it would have laughed.
As if knowing what Christian was thinking it moved the scaly tail in front of its face and blocked the attacks of those pests, causing them to take the defensive when receiving the attack.
A snarky and calm attitude suddenly emerged from the lizard
