Ash, Tribby & Shibou charged in, attacking the front lines, while Jay El, Med & Raelin dimension door-ed their ways behind the group where the Goblins had left from; hidden behind some rocks.
One of the Ogres, which was bright blue, launched into the air, and fired its spells at the melee in progress, as Ogre on Ogre action was taking place while Ash stabbed with his spear and Shibou thrust with her tusks. Shibou, scared of the spells, took off in a panic, but her damage had been done to the decimated front lines of the Ogres.
Some of the Ogres were hardier than others, but all soon fell to the combined blows of Ash and Tribby. The Bugbears turned out to be a larger threat to Tribby, scoring a lucky trip with their slaver whips, and providing an opening to the remaining Ogres to pounce upon her, causing very serious wounds.
In retaliation, Med muted the Ogre mage, very much reducing his offensive capabilities, and Jay El took to the air himself, en route for the assist.
Raelin launched a fireball at the Ogres, damaging them greatly, but also alerting them to Med and his presence on the battlefield. This turned out to be important, as it split the offensive forces nicely.
Ash was mortally wounded by one of the remaining Ogres, but Jay El was able to Teabag* him back to life.
The Ogremage, seeing that the battle wasn't going his way, attempted to fly away, but Med took him out with her own Magic Missile.
Ash, still bleeding, was able to take out another Ogre before it could lay a hand upon him, which freed up Jay El to teabag Tribby. The bugbears attempted to launch arrows at Jay El, but one broke his bow, and the others missed horribly.
The remaining Ogres around Tribby smashed her and again, brought her down, but Med was able to web the ogres (including Tribby) down, giving Jay El time to heal her, and Ash, again.
The Ogres which were bearing down upon the spellcasters, bore down upon them. Raelin did much damage to them with his spells, but not enough - the remaining Ogre obliterated Raelin with one shot.
Med, left with the choice to run, or stay and heal Raelin, healed the caustic elf, and, due to Pelor's blessing, was able to avoid being struck by the previously accurate Ogre. Raelin, in gratitude, turned invisible and ran, muttering something about the best of luck.
Jay El, too far away to reach Med in time, used his sling and pepped the Ogre with a rock with no noticeable effect.
Raelin, having a change of heart, lost his invisibility and zapped the remaining Ogre just as it was about to squish Med like a rather attractive bug.
At this point, all that remained were the bugbears, who were fleeing, but, thanks to the marksmanship of those in the vicinity, all were slain.
