It's one of those times that I wish I was recording the session - just for that moment.
Because Anita insisted she could wound one and they could make their escape (when I had made it clear that the Mind Flayers are aware you're there; they just don't care because getting the livestock down the mine shaft to their people was more important; and they assumed that the party would not be foolish enough to attack...) But Anita kept saying, "I have a high Dexterity! I can wound one! And we can run!"
So I said, "Do you want to attack the Mind Flayers?"
Everyone said, "No!" Anita said, "Yes!"
So I said, "Roll initiative."
Everyone was yelling at Anita, that if the Mind Flayers go before everyone else, that they could mind stun them with psionics.
And then it donned on her... Anita could hit one and do some damage; but her party was in range of their psionics.
And she realized her grave mistake. I honestly thought one of them was going to die (the bard, who got mind stunned and didn't make their save) - but I gave the barbarian to do one heroic moment - if they rolled a 20 (with Dex bonus) - they'd be able to grab the Bard (who is just a tiny halfling) and sprint away - the barbarian rolled a NATURAL 20. Heroic moment and escape achieved.
I have no idea why you think I am a fantastic painter (between the disney pictures and now this) - but, thank you! Sadly, another one I didn't do - just happened across it while googling cool D&D images.
