OOC: Actually, Pele's still intangible so that lightning bolt would have just gone straight through her.

Pele shows irritation at being spotted by her enemy but laughs with evil glee at the Thunderbird's vain effort to harm her. Coiling a leg around the shaft of the flaming glaive that's appeared in her hand, she closes her wings and drops downwards, her magnificent heat-hazy form rushing straight past him. At what seems to be the ast moment, her wings snap open and she comers to a hover mere feet above the broiling surface of the magma vent.

Roaring with frustration at his inability to hurt her, Thunderbird circles down unleashing another bolt until he gets into range to bite her

Thunderbird will NOT fly directly towards her in the caldera, he'll circle down so that when he attacks her it will be mostly level flight.  If 160' of Flight will make it to her, Thunderbird will double move, then Frenzy to get a bite attack, possibly rending.  Otherwise, he'll just fly 80' towards her and unleash another lightning bolt even if she's not within range.

The camera follows Thunderbird as he circles around Pele, snapping off bolt after bolt leaving white after-images on the screen. Pele hovers directly over the caldera, the bolts having no effect...

"And battle is joined - Thunderbird's super lightning attack is apparently not having any effect! Is this Kami even capable of being harmed?! Many temples across Japan will be attempting to placate her tonight, no doubt!"

Pele watches Thunderbird and his reluctance to confront her on her home turf. Twirling her glaive through the air and behind her back, she holds out her other hand and makes a beckoning "come hither if you dare, coward" gesture.

Taunt: 1d20+12=29

You sure you don't mean taunt? Kaiju are immune to stress.

The taunting is too much for Thunderbird as he flies up to her and bites.

Spoiler: show

Fly move action then
Bite
probably doing nothing since she's still intangible.

Pele repeats her come hither gesture as she moves backwards towards the seething magma

OOC: 5' step, Taunt: 1d20+12=23, Taunt: 1d20+12=30

Thunderbird continues to futilely bite at smoky form.  He rufuses to fly close to the magma however.  As he bites the roar of mocking laughter fills the air.

Spoiler: show

As long as Pele continues to taunt, he'll alternate Move then Bite one round and Bite then Move the next, using his reach to attack from about 20' above her.

Pele scowls when it becomes evident that this interloper isn't as stupid as it appears. Dropping her stance, she regards Thunderbird with cold fury.

"The Thunderbird snap at Pele, but nothing is happening - do they intend to fight at all? Oh, wait... yes, she looks mad now! What will she do?"

Pele, still snarling at her inability to make this creature charge recklessly to its doom, drops into the magma vent and disappears from view as she considers other tactics to bring to bear against the interloper.

OOC: Move 60' down, move 60' forward

Tunderbird flies up and over the vent.  He scans the area and then lets loose another blast of lightning.

Spoiler: OOC • show

80' Move up (at half rate this should put him 60' above the vent)
Perception check to see if he sees anything.  If he does then blast it.  Otherwise the blast goes into the side of the vent, hopefully eventually creating another channel for the lava flow.  He'll continue to do this until he spots Pele.
