A Staggering Blow ~ Round 8
The beetles in 0709 and 1309 are both stunned, so they are no threat; the hexes around them are not considered melee hexes, as these beetles cannot engage.
However, 1209 can engage against Aleksandra and does. It rolls an 8, missing.
The beetle that Engelhart tried to push, in 1009, attacks. It rolls a 7, also missing.
Beetles continue to harry Gudbrand, from 0807 and 0907, the latter climbing up and over the tomb to engage him from above. 0907 rolls a modified 13, missing, but 0807 rolls a 16 and hits. [I see that Gudbrand lists his armor class as 5, but it is actually only 6; a 16 dexterity makes an 8 AC, not a 7]. Gudbrand takes 7 more damage . . . and now he really is in trouble, as he stumbles and falls into 0809.
I will need a d20 roll from Gudbrand. A really important one.
Rowan, too, is in great danger. He is being attacked from 0907, 1008 and 1009.
0907, 1008 and 1009 against Rowan, as the beetle's attack centers on him. With an AC of 8, he is hit by an modified 15 from above, causing 3 damage. Stunned, he falls back into 0909. The beetle in 1008 rushes forward and attacks him again, rolling a 10. The third beetle, in 1009, turns and bites, missing with a 9. Over all, Rowan was very lucky.
At the end of the beetle's attack, here is how it looks:
Now, we're going to have to manage some unpleasantness. I need the CLO for everyone in the party this round. Please post it on the blog, even if it is on your character (will make it easier for me).
As well, Engelhart, Lothar and Aleksandra can all act. Gudbrand is in trouble. He will probably be unconscious. I leave it to the party to handle that. Best of luck.
Here is the x.p. distribution thus far:
The players round ends with everyone in this position:
