Kobalds Round 3: Fire!
The image above of this post shows everything's position at the end of round 2.
Warth climbed the stairs to attack; despite having superior combat skills over the opponents, he failed to hit either time. Ermeth climbed the bottom of the stairs after him. The stairs are difficult to stand on - being made for kobald feet - and for future reference, any attack UP from a stair hex is done at -2 to hit due to attacking up and this tiny stair-foot size.
Ermeth moves up behind Warth. The rest of Warth's group moves up as possible. Salth, Balther and Aruth gather together to start their way up the slope.
Frith and Odval pitch their oil flasks at 2616 and 2716; both score nearly perfect hits, and both flasks break. There are screams. All four bowmen there are stunned - possibly dead. That will take a round or two to tell.
The remainder of Frith's crew organizes themselves at the bottom of the barricade slope; Barath prepares to throw his flask of oil next round.
The kobalds then move. Three attack Warth, and two hit; Warth takes 2 damage, then 4 damage. He is not stunned.
Four bowmen shoot at Seth, Batath and Palt (having succeeded their morale checks, they're a little rattled, but attending to business and not rushing to save their companions). Batath and Palt are hit, for 3 damage each. Neither are stunned.
The party sees bowmen leap on top of the hut above Ahmet. Warth can see a little further - I'm tempted to keep it foggy for the players, but what the hell, we'll have as open a game as possible. Warth can see a second hut, and a few other kobalds, and part of another flight of stairs. The shaded area is what Warth can see, as opposed to the remaining party.
Ahmet - whatever you figure you can do.
Lukas and Andrej - you're have just about a 1 foot arc of visibility of what is going on - not enough, I'm afraid, to see any of the kobalds, not even those on the hut.
