Kobalds Round 22: Everyone Misses Everywhere

Before the kobald attack.
Andrej is attacked by kobalds in 3205.  Both miss - though clearly the one in the orange jersey is the more dangerous.

The two kobalds in 3505 attack Frith.  They both miss, also.

Kobalds with bows everywhere are reloading - except the two who leapt onto the roof in 3405 - they fire this round.  One fires at Andrej and one at Frith.  Both miss.  Sigh.  Some bowmen on the pink level draw back as they load.  Kobald swordsmen take their place.

The round moves to the player's turn looking like this:


Andrej, Ahmet and Lukas are free to move.  Lukas, although you are at zero hit points, you're as capable of any activity as ever.  You don't start to notice ill effects until you drop below zero.

Lukas will take this time to get to the ground then apply a salve. He will specifically get behind the hut and hide behind it for the process of making himself less of a cushion of pins.

Lukas said...

1d4: 2

Andrej takes another swing at the orange jersey:

to hit: 17
dmg: 5

Andrej, that hits and stuns; you can force your way into 3205 if you wish.

Ahmet said...

Ahmet jumps down from the hut (into 3509) and loads his kobold bow (aka a kobow).

How many arrows did I recover from the dead kobold?

Alexis said...

Let's say a dozen arrows.

Lukas said...

If you want, I have a quarter dozen over here ;)

Andrej said...

Yes, Andrej will step into hex 3205.

Andrej said...

I was just thinking Ahmet, maybe Klass could muster up enough courage to bring you the xbow if the kobow doesn't work out.

Ahmet said...

(OOC: I'm sure Ahmet could convince Klaas to be more afraid of him than of kobolds!)

Alexis said...

Ahmet, I'm ruling that you have time to start loading the bow, so you can fire it without penalties (beyond the non-proficiency) next round.

Alexis said...

Klaas isn't going to muster any courage - someone would have to get the crossbow.

He failed his morale, so he is out of this combat completely. When it ends, he might be convinced to join the next one (he'd have to succeed at his morale).

Andrej said...

When it ends we should either kick his ass to the curb or start paying him a teamster's salary.

Alexis said...

Frith draws his hand axe and attacks the orange kobald ... and misses.

Odval and Vala each climb their pyramids. Batath reaches the top of 3206, but doesn't have enough move to attack.

Nerga and Culf all throw their axes at 3406. Nerga hits! His axe kills the kobald.

Finally, Zoft steps out from 3208 to 3207 (the most he can move and retain his spell). He shouts "FROLIC!" at 3305 - who fails his saving throw against the command. He doesn't attack those climbing, and begins to cavort about, getting in the way of his companion in 3305, making one less attack on Andrej as well.

This is the party's round. I shall start the next post.

Andrej said...

I'll have to remember that "Frolic!" command. Would "Cavort!" have been more or less effective? The Same? ;)

Alexis said...

I considered "cavort" - I decided that "frolic" suggesting circular movement, while "cavort" suggested making a linear path ... a cavorting kobald could thus be avoided and ignored as it went towards the back, while a frolicking kobald would foul up his buddy.

The next post is up.

Klaas' morale will only improve with successful rolls. Have to blame yourselves, gentle masters.
