Warhammer Quest: The Sylvan Epic


The Tentacled One
Well, that ended up bigger than I'd meant for it to. It's been so long, I forgot how I made these things. To refresh, each letter represents something. Right now, we've got...

R=Giant Rat

Also, I just remembered that Throg already had "T" as his letter. We'll need some convention for this...


The Tentacled One
To everyone's surprise, a trapdoor opens and more rats come pouring out. It's a trick. Perhaps someone wants you dead. Someone other than the rats, that is, which are the immediate problem...

To clarify, which weapons are you guys currently wielding?

Edit: Post added to main thread. If anyone wants, you can specify your preferred weapons and behaviors in combat, which I'll go by unless told otherwise.

To clarify my earlier post then:

Ty attacks immediately, swinging his pit flail with a sweeping motion to try and mow down more rats with the deathblow effect!

I posted my preferred (melee) weapon in the main thread, but Dorgath is using his Great Axe of Smiting.


Nothing Special
Throg would be sitting around scratching his ass, but this god-forsaken town only stocks mules.


The Tentacled One
-The Power Phase is 2 for this turn. Nothing happens.
-Ty's Pit Training kicks in. He may move and attack before combat starts.

-A rat leaps toward Ty's shoulder, but he intercepts it with a headbutt, knocking it across the pit. The rat survives the counterattack. Just kidding. It's super-dead.
-A rat claws Dorgath viciously, but fails to damage him.
-Dorgath punts the offending rat out of the pit. I don't know if that killed it, but some of the spectators freak out when it lands on them, so they smash it with their chairs. Dead rat.
-A rat charges Dorgath, but slips and is crushed under the butt of his axe.
-A rat charges Dorgath, but slips and gets punted into the wall of the pit. This is fatal.

Carrow spots a man in the corner signal to someone. He seems to notice that Carrow is watching him, and quickly leaves. As he is running out the door, a gate swings open in the pit. Two roaring minotaurs approach Dorgath and Tyresius, swinging clubs menacingly...

Ty roars right back at them as he wades into battle, attacking the nearest minotaur leading with the fist spike!


The Tentacled One

-Ty slashes a minotaur's torso (4 damage).
-Ty attempts to knee-strike a minotaur, but is knocked aside.
-Ty slams his knee into a minotaur (1 damage).
-Carrow is bumped into by rowdy spectators just as he is about to shoot a minotaur. He quickly regains his composure.
-Carrow shoots a minotaur in the head (2 damage). Bleeding from Ty's vicious attacks, and with an arrow buried in its skull, the beast somehow manages to remain standing.

-Ty slashes at a minotaur, but trips over a dead rat.

-A minotaur bashes Ty's head, knocking him out (0/15).

-Dorgath charges a minotaur. His attack is parried.
-Dorgath chops a minotaur (4 damage).

Dorgath still faces the threat of an angry minotaur, but Tyresius is in desperate need of medical attention...

Man, my damage rolls this time around were deplorable...Do I have an opportunity to down a slug off a Heal-Itt potion before I fall unconscious?
