Benders

Rat Bastard!

From the north, where you came into this cavern, you hear cursing and some sort of struggle. It may be your ex-prisoner.

The Benders moved to the north to find the source of the struggle. As they rounded the corner of the room, they could see that the escapee had been set upon by four giant rats. Poor bastard was getting all tore up and he was only about five feet from the stairway to freedom.

JohnM pulled his crossbow around, steadied himself (it would be shame to hit the goblin by mistake [-1 action point]) and let fly with a bolt that caught one of the rats solidly in the midsection (-6 hp) killing it. “Looks like you’ve got one avenue with moderately better survival odds, goblin. Take your pick.”

The knight leapt into the furry melee. Ice swept his longsword downwards like a flyswatter. The rat, however, had the reflexes of those darned flying pests, and so was able to dodge the attack.

Rats seemed to appear out of thin air, darting out from behind rocks and dropping from stalactites. There were dark shapes, sharp teeth, and lots of chaos as the ROUSs darted about nipping at people. Splug, JohnM, Ice, Mark, and Bex (X2) were all bitten (-3 hp).

Time to play “whack a rat”™
mark takes aim at one of the ROUs and let’s fly….missing horribly…(a 6, yes a miserable 6)…watching for weaknesses for his next shot (exploit weakness).

CB swung her quarterstaff with her might and thumped a rat on the head, killing it. She tried not to look too surprised since she never fought with the quarterstaff and wasn’t very good with it.

In contrast, Linora whipped the three-section staff around deftly and struck out with one end catching a rat that was dashing past her in the side of the head. Its legs buckled and it skidded to a dead stop.

Splug kicked wildly at one of the rats but came closer to hitting a stalagmite than the rat.

JohnE flails about wildly at the rat, but alas, ’tis on flailing. Attk:11

Bex pulls two arrows from his quiver, and in quick succession creates two rat-kebabs (22 and 14).

Weren’t we watching him?! Shite, I guess not, what with the acid and the tentacles… What’s he scuffling with? I’ve got a dingo coming to join us and I won’t have him spitted by some filthy goblin.

Rat Bastard!
 

fine….I’ll work my way north CAREFULLY and see what I see since no one else seems to be doing anything except worrying about dingo’s eating babies!

Rat Bastard!
 

Mmm… Babies… XD

Rat Bastard!
 

hellloooooo………hello…hello……hello………..hello

Rat Bastard!
 

should we roll init so we can kill off the rats or leave him to fend for himself?

Rat Bastard!
 

Just how giant is giant? Maybe we could try scaring them away.

Rat Bastard!
 

I’m out of town for 5 days after today…JohnM has control…..not that is seems I’ll miss anything as of late…

Rat Bastard!
 

Is Mark back yet? Anyways, let’s go save our friend Splug. Maybe tben he’d warm up to us.

How long before Rigel comes and joins the party?

Rat Bastard!
 

I’m back now….

Rat Bastard!
 

I don’t know how long it’ll take him to catch up. I just sent him a “here boy” a few minutes ago (game time). I want him here in case we actually do jump to another world via a gate but would rather him not hurry himself right into a trap.

Sure, let’s shoot some Womp Rats. They’re not much bigger than 3 meters… ;)

Rat Bastard!

Rat Bastard!
 

INIT: 20

Time to kill some skeevers.

Rat Bastard!
 

LAST! Sorry for not rolling, folks… Init: 14+2=16

I don’t think I want to waste bullets or spells on these rats. I think I’ll just pump a few x-bow bolts into ’em!

Rat Bastard!
 

let’s get this rolling again, and KEEP it rolling!

Rat Bastard!
 

What the fudge?! How could I miss a GIANT rat?!

Rat Bastard!
 

I hope everybody’s up-to-date with their tetanus shots… :P

Rat Bastard!
