The Froglings Falter ~ Round 4

The frogling in 0807 attacks Lothar again, but sadly rolling a 10 and a 7 for spear and bite.  The ranger is unscathed this round.

The frogling in 0707 advances on Pandred and hits her again: the spear hits AC 6, the bite hits AC -1.  Pandred is at AC 3, in plate mail, but without having had time to strap on her shield; so I hit only with the bite.  And luckily for her, I cause only 1 damage.

That, apparently, is their round.  The map looks like this:

Following the party's move, here are your positions.  At this point, I can now give full disclosure: can you find Waldo?

And the experience earned by the party:


Embla Strand said...

Willa and Embla both attack the frog in 710.

Embla: 6+2(Str, Bless)=8, 4+1(str) damage.

Willa: 11+1(Bless), 1 damage.

Petar will load his bow.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Toose are misses.

Petar does not load his bow. Look behind him!! He draws his sword and engages the same creature attacking Pandred. As with Willa earlier, he can't load a bow when he is technically engaged in melee. (someday I will teach players this, that you can't load weapons when standing next to swinging weapons!)

Given Embla's special circumstances today, I'll just go ahead and roll Petar's attack: Petar rolls a 4 on a d20.

Okay, Pandred, Lothar and Engelhart to go. Lothar, don't forget to roll for Valda and Bergthora. Please assume that Fjall steps into 0906 to help support you against the frogling in 0807.

Engelhart Askjellson said...

I step into 0706 to strike from behind at 0807. Is it possible, accounting for the maul's reach?

[I'm not too keen on hitting a foe with 1 hp with a d10 weapon, hope I don't regret this decision]

Alexis Smolensk said...

The maul is only 5 feet long. Still, I could see that being a move, so long as you're above 5'6" in height and the creature was fighting on the side of the hex you were on: but it is fighting on the other side of the hex. It would be on your side if it were stunned, however.

Lothar Svensson said...

Lothar attacks with longsword.

Attack: 5+1=6
Damage: 5


Attack: 3
Damage: 1


Attack: 6
Damage: 4

Swish swish swish.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Oops. Those are all misses.

Engelhart Askjellson said...

0607 it is, then.

Attack roll: 11, modified to 12.

Damage roll: 8.

Pandred said...

Swinging for 0808

To-Hit: 20! (+4 Str/Bless/Male/Axe) Total 24
2nd d20: 16

Damage: 5 (+3 Str) Total 8, Crit: 16!

I'll advance into 0808 if that buffets him back, otherwise I'll sit tight.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Engelhart's attack will miss.

Pandred's, obviously, is brutal. The frogling is driven back into 0707, stunned, also wounded (as is the frogling that Embla hit, earlier). So it will lose a hit point per round.

I'm working on updating the post above now. Pandred, did you want to advance again into 0808?

Alexis Smolensk said...

Yep, sorry, you said so. Consider it done.

Alexis Smolensk said...

The post above has been updated for the party's move and one more surprise, plus the experience earned thus far.

I'm working on the new post now.

Engelhart Askjellson said...

Alexis, I believe you've omitted the Xp for my hit for 2 damage on the second round.

It's a pittance, but hey, every little bit helps.

Alexis Smolensk said...

So noted! That's why I post the x.p. each round, so that if I miss something, I can be corrected. I will update it for the next posting.

The next post it now up. And you're not going to like it.
