- A green dragon bolts straight for the temple. Roderick tries to disintegrate it but the dragon shrugs it off.
- Dragon enters the temple. The PCs all break off and rush toward it to protect Kuyutha when a blinding, white light streams out of the temple. The green dragon shoots out flying for all its worth, but a beam of electricity races out after it, frying the creature to cinders.
