The plan was simple: our most heavy-set Soldier would maintain Vistrix's attention by repeatedly whacking the beast on the nose with his weapon, another Soldier would do the same but only at his rear end, and each Soldier would be accompanied by one or two Priests with strong healing abilities. As for the rest of us, well, without giving too much away, when the call was made, we'd rush in and bleed that overgrown iguana as much as we could before it got all angry and decide to stun us and breath all over us with its fire-hot breath. Several deaths (en masse) ensued when the beast's underlings decided to make their presence known to us and avenge the deaths of their slithery kin a bit earlier. And so after re-grouping, we'd assemble ourselves to fight the dragon again.
Vistrix must have been getting sick of us that evening, because I could have sworn that on the fifth attempt I could see a look on the dragon's face as if it were saying, "You again? Haven't I killed you all enough?!?"
As we approached the waning hours of the evening, we, as a group, conceded that we were not going to best this beast on this day. Fortunately, we had learned much about this beast called "Vistrix" and we would relish the opportunity to face it again with a renewed energy, enthusiasm and ire for victory. The only regret I had was knowing that I would have to go back to King Conan and tell him of our failure... or not! I wonder if King Atzel is looking for a new court jester?
