Re: The First Adventure

Ghoul Battle Turn 2

Chegs is in a desperate battle for his life. He swings his hammer and connects for 4hp, but it is not enough. The ghoul is damaged but immune to pain. It staggers forward and rends Chegs with its its claws for 4hp damage. Chegs succumbs to his wounds!

Meanwhile Dougal and Willie try to knock the ghoul off of Tet so that Potty can get to him!

Dougal stabs for 4hp and Willie chops for 4hp. The ghoul is destroyed, and Tet is saved!

Potty administers a small handful of Coprophillus corpusaugmentum mushrooms, and Tet is restored to 5 hit points!

Two of three ghouls have been destroyed, and the third is feasting on Chegs. What next, hero hobbets?


Party wins initiative 5-4

Attack rolls:
Chegs 16, hits Ghoul A for 4hp
Willie 15, hits Ghoul B for 4hp
Dougal 19, hits for 4hp destroying Ghoul B

Ghoul A vs Chegs
attack rolls 1, 16
hits once for 4hp
Chegs is dead at -1hp

Potty administers 5 healing mushrooms to Tet

Ghoul A fights on!

Re: The First Adventure

Ooowwh, moans Tet deliriously. He hasn't previously been subject to ghoul attack and Coprophillus corpusaugmentum in such short succession.
If Tet is no longer paralysed he springs to his feet and wallops the remaining ghoul. Otherwise, he continues his repose...

Re: The First Adventure

"Chegs! NOOOO!" screams Willie, and he dashes over to slay the foul beast that has claimed the life of poor Chegs.

Dougal likewise charges the remaining ghoul and tries to end its life.

Re: The First Adventure

Ghoul Battle Turn 3

The last ghoul standing has the look of a stout fighting-hobbet, likely the dead party's 'big man.' The creature swats aside Dougal and Willie's feeble attacks. "Ooowwh, my back!" curses the prone Tet. He overcomes his paralysis enough to draw his dagger as the ghoul falls upon him. The monster claws at Tet's leather gambeson; its teeth snap at the terrified hobbet's face! Tet plunges his dagger into the ghoul's ribcage, but even that is not enough! Immune to pain, the ghoul shrugs off multiple injuries and continues its mindless attacks.

What next, Hobbet Heroes?

Attack rolls:
Dougal 4
Tet 14 hit for 2hp
Willie 5
Ghoul vs Tet 1, 10 miss

Alpha Ghoul fights on despite cumulative 8hp damage!

Re: The First Adventure

Willie hacks & hacks at the ghoul's back with his axe, trying to distract it from Tet, & eager for revenge!

Re: The First Adventure

Tet finds impossible courage and stabs the creature madly until it's off of him.

Re: The First Adventure

Dougal likewise will hack at the ghoul until either it is destroyed or he is unable to do so.

Re: The First Adventure

Ghoul Battle Turn 4

Willie
misses completely and Dougal lands only a glancing blow (1hp). Tet musters his strength and stabs as hard as he can from a prone position (4hp). His blade strikes true, and the ghoul is destroyed! The undead adventurer's body de-animates, his face relaxes its hungry snarl, and his soul finds peace.

What is everyone's immediate reaction in the aftermath of the Ghoul Battle?

waysoftheearth since you struck the decisive blow, can you tell us what is the secret to stopping a rampaging ghoul? Does it have a weak spot? Next time, should your friends aim for the brain, heart, neck, etc.?

Attack rolls
Willie 8, miss
Dougal 14, hit 1hp
Tet 16, hit 4hp


Ghoul A is destroyed and the ghoul battle is over!

Re: The First Adventure

Willie rushes to the body of Chegs and kneels beside him.

"Oh, Chegs..."

He does the necessary things of checking for any faint sign of life, then does what he can to compose the body.

Then he sits by it in silence, surveying the battle scene with a stunned glance.
