Wing beats mingled with cries as the battlers swooped and soared through the sky.
It was great fun to work on an aerial combat. It freed the characters from needing to be placed on the same plane, allowing for dynamic placement, whilst the wings act as excellent framing devices.
I placed the POV over the Elf's shoulder as that helps us identify with the adventurers. It also gives the sense of swooping in (as a rescuer?) to an ongoing engagement.
