I think Freid has one hit, I rolled a 2, so He's back to full HP.

Hmmm, that's kinda right, but perhaps I could be more exact:

When a player opts to defend (aka parry), he does not usually get to attack at all. The attacker is -4 to hit him instead. Sometimes (depending on relative weapon sizes and the attacker's die throw) the defender may get a counter strike. Yes, this always happens after the attacker's throw, because it requires the attacker to throw poorly first. See the parry rule online here.

Now introduce two weapon fighting.

When the player opts to defend (aka parry), he still does not get to attack at all. The attacker is still -4 to hit him (on top of the fact that his AC is 2 pips better for his main gauche).
Now the defender with two weapons may encounter a scenario where he can parry with his larger weapon (so not risk being disarmed) yet still counter strike with his smaller weapon.

Possibly the most complicated scenario ever conceived in D&D! Let's see how it plays out... if it sucks I will quick to simplify :shock:

Okay braave adventurers... over to thread 82 if you are proceeding.

Everyone else can maintain a foothold/fallback position (and any in character conversations) here in the Goblin Kitchen.

Re: (079) What a Gnome Knows

Zax the Gnome, Leudigar, Herald, Zem the Dwarf, Dopey the Hobbet, Fried, Akbar, and Karl march off into the goblin tunnels, leaving the slain Arian and the wounded Wetzel under the safekeeping of Gerhard and Kianna and Faengol the Elves.
Are Wetzel, Gerhard, and Faengol remaining in the goblin kitchen?

I'm assuming at this point Kianna the Elf Sister/Fighter/Medium has gone into NPC mode, and will remain here (unless someone wants to play her).

Wetzel stumbles to his feet, thanking those who've bound his wounds. From his pack he retrieves and lights a torch.

"I'll be little good in a fight," he says, "but I can provide some light."

He positions himself as close to the middle of the marching order as possible and joins the further exploration.
