The guard (Def 17) that was in sight jumped out of his chair and grabbed a crossbow from the table in front of him. He spun a let the bolt fly. The way the bolt skittered and bounced along the floor, it was hard to tell who the guard may have been aiming at.
From somewhere around the corner, a bell started to ring.
Ice did his best Conan impression and shouted his battlecry: “Crom wants his doughnuts, you little green bastards!” Crom must have heard the knight, for the goblin, momentarily stunned by the sight of the charging knight (or perhaps he was simply wondering what a doughnut was), soon felt the full force of the blade’s hit. Ice’s attack would have made Conan proud. (Critical hit: 31 ATK, 14 DMG)
Sister Linora reached out and touched JohnE and although he didn’t see anything happen, he somehow felt more protected (+3 Def).
Mark moves up to w/in 6 squares of the little bastid and lets fly with his x-box, hitting him (16+5=21) for 9 damage, manically giggling that he actually shot better then the guard. The visible guard took the bolt in the chest and died.
JohnE runs forward to look for more bad guys. And sees one more goblin in the room, ringing the dang bell. There is a table with some battered cards on it and two chairs. ;;; Map will hopefully be showing up tonight.
;;; Y3 is Splug. The arches are actually closed doors. There is another curtain in the upper right hand hand corner of the guard room.
CB couldn’t see much of the action at the moment but she knew it was about to get very interesting. She readied her sling to deal with any reinforcements that showed up.
JohnM moved up along with JohnE and Ice with his scimitar drawn. “There’s no way they didn’t hear all that in the next room.” So he reached out with “the force” (Mage Hand) and pushed the curtain aside to see what was on the other side. “Better to see what’s ahead when we aren’t within short range.”
Bex holds his action until the beginning of next round… hopefully when something plows through the doors, he’ll get a few shots off!
