We Came, We Saw, We Kicked Its @ss

Just back from gaming. Much fun! As predicted, Theran is now 5th level. We encountered the predicted black dragon -- a lot sooner than I expected, too. It was a tough fight ... poor Camstone has a severe case of Bad Dice, so the Arrow of Dragon Slaying failed, his attempt to Smite Evil was a bust, and he rolled 1's all over the place. The dragon snatched up Camstone's paladin and was romping around the battlefield with him hanging out of its mouth. It took pretty much the whole party whittling away at it to finally beat it in the end ... although I got the killing blow with a magic missile as it was attempting to flee with only two hit points left.
