| 3.15.13, possibly the final combat turn... |
The Wyvern thumps to the ground and rolls about frantically in an attempt to smother the flames, gifting our brave heroes a rare opportunity and they don't waste it. Sword and mace and dagger hew mightily upon the subjugated wyrmm, and despite it smothering the oily fire, it cannot withstand the punishment metered out by [p Man,mail+helm,hand ax,shield,9,6/8]Biratlan[/p], [p Halfling,mail+helm,mace,shield,9,7/7]Tumbly[/p] and [p Halfling,leather,shortsword,open hand,9,5/5]Filbert[/p]. And thus is the wicked wyvern is butchered.
With only 2 hit points remaining, the wyvern has to go on the defensive and attempt to smother the flames before it is consumed. Thus, it won't attack this turn, but the referee rules that its flame smothering rolling about is as good as "parrying", so our heroes will attack it with a -4 penalty.
Our would-be wyvern slayers take their potentially decisive attacks:
Tumbly 1d20=19 (-4 parry); hits AC 4; 1d6=4.
Biratlan 1d20=20! (-4 parry); hits AC 4; 1d6=6.
Filbert 1d20=20! (-4 parry); hits AC 4;1d6=1.
Well now, that is about as "decisive" as it gets. The Wyvern is reduced to -9 hit points and is summarily slaughtered. |
