[6 Woman,leather+helm,longbow,shield,12,5/5]Ashtad[/6] sees where this is all going, and so bends her bow while she still has the opportunity to fire at a clean target. It's 70 yards so she has a series of missiles in flight before the first one hits home...
...on the other side of the bridge:
"Tools is it, ya littl' blighters?!" snarls the bridge-troll as it sees [p Dwarf,mail+helm,axe,shield,9,8/8]Valorn[/p] and [6 Man,mail+helm,two,handed sword,9,5/5]Helmut[/6] rushing to engage. "Ah'll eet yez all then!" it promises and takes a low wide stance just as [6 Woman,leather+helm,longbow,shield,12,5/5]Ashtad[/6]'s volley of missiles come raining down... | 1d20=14, hit; 1d6=6 hp damage! 1d6=4 so 5 arrows spent | ...and several arrows drill into the creature's back.
"Ugh," it grunts, eyes bulging at this, but an instant later combat is joined, and it pummels [6 Dwarf,mail+helm,axe,shield,9,5/8]Valorn[/6] and [6 Man,mail+helm,two,handed sword,9,4/5]Helmut[/6] with broads sweeps of its log-weight arms, but even this can't stop the pair and they hew mightily at the monster with axe and sword and lay it low in surprisingly short order.
"Hungree," it wheezes with its final breath, and then is silent.
| Initiative is rolled. 1d6; players=2, bridge-troll=6.
The bridge-troll has 4 attacks versus normal types, let's say two each versus Valorn and Helmut:
2d20 vs Valorn=6,18, one hit; 1d6=3 damage (5/8 remaining).
2d20 vs Helmut=19,4, one hit; 1d6=1 damage (4/5 remaining).
Valorn 1d20=19 hit; 1d6=4 so 3 hp damage,
Helmut 1d20=16 hit; target is large-sized so 2d6=4,6 for 6 hp damage,
Ref rolls hp for the bridge-troll 4d6+1=12, but 15 hp damage has been suffered, so it is bested. |
[6 Dwarf,mail+helm,axe,shield,9,5/8]Valorn[/6] and [6 Man,mail+helm,two,handed sword,9,4/5]Helmut[/6] have minor hurts only, and can scarcely believe their success. | And nor can the referee... |
