Kobalds Round 5: Warth Falls Back
The Dwarves attack for the rest of round 4.
Warth misses TWICE, again (batting .167), causing no damage. He remains in place. Pushing forward will only expose him further.
Ermeth moves into position behind Warth, and throws his axe at 2811. He rolls a 20, double damage, causing six damage, killing the kobald. Erdina follows Ermeth up the stairs.
Zoft moves away from Palt and throws a hammer at the right kobald in 2415. He misses with a 9, and it ends up on the bastion.
Batath climbs halfway up, and Culf and Seth form a pyramid for Palt. Mega moves towards it. Frith, in turn, climbs up Kushi, up Vala and onto the edge of the battlement.
Nerga does the same on Aruth's shoulders - just in time to put his hand in a pool of oil burning from Andrej's flask. Nerga takes one damage from that - but will be able to climb into hex 2911 next round.
The kobalds fight back.
Two bowmen loose into Batath, and two into Palt. The last kobald, the one that survived being burnt, moves to attack Frith. Palt is missed by the +2 bonus causes the arrow to hit Seth for 1 damage. Seth is not stunned. The tough kobald hits Frith for 4 damage - Frith is not stunned.
The two bowmen atop the nearest hut loose into the pile below Nerga - and both manage to miss that pile. The two on the hut beyond Warth loose into Ahmet and Ermeth, respectively, missing both. The two bowmen in 3008 (note the floor is covered yellow there, indicating that level is 12 feet above the orange level) are loading this round.
Ahmet is attacked by the fairly tough kobald in 2610 - surprisingly adept, Ahmet finds, as it manages to hit AC 4 (the blow landing on Ahmet's well placed shield, I believe - I think Ahmet is AC 3). Warth is hit twice this round - he's hit hard, for 4 damage, then for 4 damage again. The second hit stuns Warth, and he staggers backwards onto the stairway. The three kobalds swarm forward (if the opponents are stunned, there is no penalty to movement - I will HAVE to write that post someday), taking advantage.
That completes Round 4.
For Round 5 actions:
Ahmet, Ermeth will be attacking upwards while Warth continues to stumble down the stairs into Erdina's arm. Ahmet has the choice of attacking ONCE against 2610, or TWICE against 2710 - the kobalds in 2710 are less defensible. Ahmet cannot attack the tough kobald and a weak kobald. Whichever he decides, he will spend two movement points attacking. I don't think you're going to run, but it is an option to jump down the slope and avoid taking damage if you make a dex check (1d4 damage if you fail).
Lukas, your sleep spell is ready. It will affect those in concentric circles radiating outwards from your position; you are able to move 1 hex in any direction before you cast. If you move into the hex with Worter, Andrej or the others, you risk being bumped and the spell ruined before you discharge it. You can choose not to discharge it this round, but hold it until next round.
Andrej, no suggested options at this time.
