Goblins continued to pour out of the northern passageway completely replacing all of the goblins that had been killed by the Benders and then some. Shortswords and spears jabbed all around and JohnE was hit again (6 hp) but Ice and JohnM were able to avoid the pointy parts. At the end of the southern hallway, a goblin that had to be the chief from Splug’s description (O2) stepped through the door with a crossbow ready. He was trying to find a clearing to fire but none presented itself so he held his fire for the moment.
“Scratch that! I think we’re better off sticking together,” Ice said to the rest of the Benders as he saw what looked to be a deleted scene from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ film. The knight then shifted a few steps (into A5), raised his sword and delivered an overhead slash meant to cleave the goblin (G7) in two. Ice’s blade, however, only managed to land a scoring, but still painful, body blow. (ATK: 20, DMG: 7) He looked over to Bex and wondered if the resident wizard could pull off a Gandalf-esque stunt with some magic spell.
Linora was not in a position where she could do much to help at the moment.
Mark says “jesus, like cockroaches or Sioux fans, they just won’t go away!” He then lines up on G2 and lets fly (14+5=19) hitting for 7 damage.
JohnE winds up and wallops P4(Attk:15+AP1:3=18 Dmg:5, “Where is a flamethrower when you need one?” The goblin’s face caved in and he dropped to the ground. This created just the opportunity the chief was looking for and he fired his crossbow. In trying to avoid hitting his own people, he avoided hitting anyone.
CB tried her concussion ring on the chief but it didn’t have near the effect that she was hoping (8 hp).
JohnM liked how well the fan of flame seemed to clear some breathing room (if you didn’t mind breathing in vaporized goblin). So he let fly with one of his own. (Burning hands – G2, P4, G5 – 10hp damage). P4 was already down. With the damage the two goblins had already sustained, JohnM’s flames were enough to finish the job.
Since it worked so well last time, Bex decides to whip out another burning hands spell at the goblin horde to the North, hitting P3, P11, and P12 for 16 points of damage… and probably scaring the shit out of P8!
