Creamor didn't have to wait for Janus' translation to realize that the frogman would start attacking any second. While he improved his shield with a little bit of magic he whispered to his comrades: "We have to trip him up so he loses concentration on his beserker trance. He'll be weakened afterwards."
Plan B: Use more fire

Lars tightens his grip on his hellish club and sets his teeth in preparation to drive back any opponents.

Janus takes a step backwards towards Grumblejack, ready to interpose his mass between her and the frothing frogman.

"Is this creature defective?" she croaks.

Before the raging frog-man can finish bellowing his battle-challenge at the group, Creamor rushes forward and does a cheeky low spin, trying to sweep the chieftan off his feet. Unfortunately the frog-man is quick to react, springing up into a little hop just as the tail sweeps underneath him.

Aiden readies his mace while reciting the sacred prayers to Asmodeus, stepping in front of Janus ready to bash anyone who approaches.

Zikumo shouts at the other boggarts to stay back, that this is the chieftan's fight. It's working for now, but several of them are looking between the old priest and the chieftain, looking about ready to disobey the old creature.

Considering the watchers, Drin feels that a touch of theatrics are necessary to help them decide which side to fight on.  Best to make the fearsome chieftain opposing them appear a tad less so.  He deliberately appears to just stand there and do nothing, as if not even acknowledging the chieftain against them... while weaving magics in secret.

A spark of electrical power zaps the Chieftain's hands, and then a cloud of fear appears in his mind.

Spoiler: show

Half action 1: Cast Zot! (autosucceeds, cost: 0 spell points.  Fortitude save DC 16 or the Frogman drops all items he's carrying (ie his greatsword).
Half action 2: Use double cast to cast Scare I (autosucceeds, cost: 1 spell point.  Will save DC 16; on success, the chieftain is Frightened, on failure, he gains a grade of Shaken).

Using concealed casting on both spells.

Lars opens his connection to the infernal regions and readies a gout of his lord's power, his mind racing through what he's read of the Contract and it's nature of unfair conflict hoping to find a way to call forth boiling infernal water.

Spoiler: show

Preparing to cast Scorching Ray (auto-success as priest) but skinned as boiler hot water or perhaps mud/lava.

A small spark of electricity flies from Drin's outstreched hand and towards the charging frog-man, but aside from a small muscle twitch there appears to be no effect... until a second wave of Drin's hands causes the raging frog-man to turn towards Drin, wide-eyed and with fear clearly mixed in with his rage.

Before he can do anything, Lars touches his holy symbol with one hand, holds the palm of the other towards the frog-man chieftain, and with a few Infernal prayer incantations three gouts of hellfire blasts forth from his palm and strikes the confused frog-man dead on. Unfortunately the frog-man's leather armour shields him from most of the flames, leaving only some singed areas on his arms and neck.

Kumanda leaps backwards, seemingly from the sudden fiery onslaught but from the wide-eyed look he gives Drin it's clear what caused the retreat. The chieftain quickly barks a few commands to the other frog-people, clearly struggling to overcome the frightful magic currently influencing him.

While all this is happening, Janus takes the opportunity to discreetly move out of the way, making sure to put as much meat between her and the frog-people as possible.

Drin chuckles as he sees the chieftain scurry and taps his colleague Aiden on the shoulder as he says, quietly:
"Make Haste to cut that frog down"

Rolled 1d20 : 7, total 7


Spoiler: show

3 spell points and 1 use of double cast used in the last two rounds. I need to look up the earlier fight against the two demons to see how many are remaining...

Creamor spred his wings to chase after the retreating frog man, beating his wings just enough to get behind the frogmen and flick his tail at Kumanda's retreating form, making him stumble to the ground.

Janus maintains position within the lee of the ogre, confident her teammates can make mince meat of the chief frogman.

Lars brings his mace up to guard and looks for an opening.
