  • Adam and Amara get some good licks in
  • Gell does ki attack, but doesn’t look like magic attacks work as well
  • Arvyll casts his aging spell on Adam

  • Not much for a very young elf
  • Same spell gets cast on Gell several times, and he turns 31
  • Arvyll also casts a spell to slow down time for party
