Kennel Round 5 ~ It Backs Away

The beast has only one attack this round: and since Engelhart rolled higher than Lothar, I'll rule that Engelhart's miss was closer ... so the beast will feel more threatened by Engelhart just now.  It rolls a 6, which only hits AC 7.

Lothar will take 1 incidental damage.

And with that it will retreat one hex, onto 0302:

Hex 0402 is clear.  As before, 0403 will cost the normal 1 AP to enter, but will be a -1 to hit penalty fighting out of it.  0303 will cost 3 AP to enter and will cost a -2 AC defense penalty and a -2 to hit penalty.

Act as you will.  Fjall finishes loading the crossbow.  I'll let Lothar decide on Bergthora's action.  Embla suffers a point of damage from her wound.

Following the party's move, the position before the beast's attack is:

And the experience so far:


Embla Strand said...

I move into 403 and attack the creature with my battleaxe.

Shit. 7+1-1=7 to-hit and 7 damage.

Embla, you're in 0703; 0403 is three AP away, and you've only got 4 AP. That doesn't give you enough to swing once you're in 0403. Want to rethink that move?

Embla Strand said...

I have 5AP due to leaving more stuff in my pack to move the treasure out of the room.

Engelhart Askjellson said...

[Shit, Embla, that was bold! I was pondering that spot for Lothar or myself as we're Hp-rich.]

Le'see... I want to try and stun the creature again, at the risk of Embla being a goner.

I drop the maul to my feet, draw the warhammer and hurl it at the beast, leaving Lothar free to take up the clear hex unimpeded.

Engelhart Askjellson said...

Attack Roll: 19, +1 for point blank range (this time that I don't need the bonuses, here they are).

Damage roll: 3.

With my remaining AP I pick the Maul back up.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Then Embla's move stands.

Engelhart, it surely hits. For the record, you don't need two hands for your warhammer, so you can let the head of your maul rest on the floor, holding the handle with your free hand, while you hurl the hammer.

Might be important someday.

I'm awaiting Lothar, who is also running Bergthora. The latter still has a dagger in her hand.

Lothar Svensson said...

Bergthora throws the dagger.
Attack: 15! Damage: 2

Lothar moves to 0403 and attacks with the longsword.
Attack: 13. Hrm. Hits AC 6.
Damage: 3. Just in case.

Alexis Smolensk said...

I am sorry to say, Bergthora's attack misses. In fact, she hits the same AC as Lothar: her THACO is 21.

I shall start wheels turning for the next round.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Oh, and I'll have to read that as moving to 0402, Lothar. Embla moved into 0403.

The post above is updated with your move. As always, please correct any mistakes I've made.
