Just don't panic because your life is in the hands of someone named Dopey

Re: (079) What a Gnome Knows

Dopey awakened lying on the ground, in a dark tunnel of the underworld, with a horrible ache from the crossbow bolt in his side....to find a hideous ghoul upon him, clawing at the poor hobbet with long bony talons.

The hobbit screams and hacks his way free (a 19 to hit!), surviving two killing blows by the skin of his teeth :shock:.

Dopey flees in a blind panic down the passage behind him (main passage or to pantry, whichever is easier).

Panting for breath, and on the ropes (1 hp left!), Dopey does what any hobbet would do in such a situation: he slips a hand into his pocket to find a ring made of interlaced silver and iron serpents. "What do I have in my pocket?" he asks himself, and slips the ring onto his finger.

Re: (079) What a Gnome Knows

Half-awake, clawing his way to his feet, Wetzel growls indecipherably. He catches sight of his spear, some distance from him and being tromped on by fleshless phalanges. In rage, he draws from his belt the dagger of their comrade, Menno, he who fell in battle against the Hezmog Regulators what seems ages ago. Wondering whether he shall soon meet a similar fate, he lashes out against skeletal foes left & right, bashing with his shield as often as stabbing with Menno's long dagger.
Wetzel continues to fight, holding with the line of his comrades if it begins to move (for instance, in a fighting retreat).

Zem is just getting warmed up and he shouts out a dwarven battle cry and pushes into the skeletons hoping to give the others time to re-arm.

"Skeletons, always empty headed anyway..."

Faengol will fall back to the kitchen, removing his pack and digging out 2 flasks of oil. He will then proceed to work on lighting another torch.

Freid keeps chugging forward, passing the paused Herald. Seeing the witch he heads straight for her shield up and sword ready to cut her down!

"Die foul hag!" Freid shouts as he charges forward.

The Herald charges the witch who tried to enchant him, mace at the ready, and engages her in melee.

Leudigar draws the long, keen-edged dagger he pulled from the goblin anti-hero and uses it to fight the skeletons.

Akbar tries to sight a bead on Mess Hall Sally, but his companions confuse his line of sight and he doesn't have a clean shot. He'll maintain his aim on the Hag and wait for an opportunity to let fly a bolt.

Akbar will endeavor to make it to the mess hall, and then put the Hag in his sights.
