Hi everyone! Faedar, Bae, Anthemis, Dorian and Quo please don't read.
We're currently still playing Rise of Tiamat and have reached the part where the party is asked to hunt down an adult green dragon and its rider that have been brutally murdering elf villages throughout the misty forest. They entered its lair by pretending to be cultists and were assigned sleeping quarters in the cave. They then charmed their only guard and slayed all the others, causing quite a ruckus. They already know the dragon was in its lair by communicating with the animals outside. I wanted the dragon to make this awesome entrance from the water in the cave, but it ended up being a giant stand still where the dragon couldn't enter the small halls made for humanoid cultists and the party wouldn't come out. I made the dragon call for the ettins in the cave to fight them as the dragon left the main part of the cave via the underwater tunnel. It was just a bit awkward: this massive dragon standing there whilst nothing was happening, so I played it as "the dragon seems bored and sure that his giants can take care of you". The party killed the Ettins and have now found the secret entrance to the dragon chamber where the dragon will be. This is where we'll start next session. I want this battle to be epic and would like to prevent this standstill to occur again. There is still the dragonrider important cultists and some elfs that are forced to work for the dragon in other parts of the lair. How can I make this battle interesting and exciting even if the players decide to hide out again? I'm currently planning on the cave to be completely dark and having the dragon hide out on the ceiling to blast them with a breath attack and a lair action to keep them from leaving the way they came.
TLDR: How do I keep a battle with an adult green dragon interesting in a cave where the party can hide away in rooms and halls the dragon cannot reach?

- I am fairly confident that my party is going to die; am I being “too mean”?
- Would this be unfair to my players? /how do I make this combat more unique
