Kobalds Round 29: The Kobald Last Stand

Before the kobalds attack.
The kobalds are clearly suffering.  3203 attacks Mega, dropping its sword in Mega's hex.  The creature turns and flees up the steps.

A kobald leaps off the hut, and joins the kobald from 3102.  Both move to 3103 and attack Htuya.  Both miss.

The kobald in 3502 fires its bow at Warth, hitting and causing 2 damage.  This does not stun Warth.

The big, striped kobald in 3402 moves to 3602 and fires at Warth from close range.  He rolls a 19 and hits, causing 2 damage.  It's not much, but it's the straw that breaks Warth, stunning the dwarf.  He falls back into the hex with Ahmet.

Here are the present positions:

Wait, is the -1 dwarf stable?

Alexis said...

She is. She hasn't been bleeding, and even if she had been, she took a salve last turn. That would have turned the trick.

Still, Vala's only 9 damage from death. She's reduced 10% on all her abilities and her movement ... so not anxious to fight again unless she has to.

Lukas said...

Yeah, I just didn't want to go rushing off and leave a dwarf to bleed to death. I'm not TRYING to piss them off. Lukas continues up as he is able.

Alexis said...

I think the dwarves probably love you. They won't forget that you're the reason they got out of that bottom level in the first place.

Ahmet said...

Ahmet charges up the steps (2 MP) and, if possible, shoulders aside the Kobold to step into 3602 (1 MP).

Alexis said...

We had established that you have to hit the kobald to muscle your way into the hex. Thus, Ahmet has to stop at the top, risk a hit and then attack.

Want to change your mind?

Ahmet said...

No, I'll have to take the risk. Can't do anything down there.

Andrej will stand ready to replace either of Htuya or Mega in the front rank should they need a breather or become stunned.

In the meantime, though, he will taunt the kobalds in 3502 and 3602 by pointing toward them with his mace and drawing his thumb across his neck in a long, drawn-out cutting motion.

Alexis said...

Mega will half beg Andrej to move into her hex and attack, while she falls back into Zoft's hex - she's close to the bottom of her hit points.

Andrej said...

Andrej will then step forward into hex 3303 as bid and attack the kobald in hex 3203

to hit: 4
dmg: 5

Alexis said...

As Andrej misses, Htuya swings her weapon again; she does 7 damage this round, driving the orange kobald back to 3202, stunning him. Htuya moves into 3203.

Balther moves into 3204 and attacks the right kobald in 3103: he misses.

Culf grabs Warth and drags him back into 3504. Odval steps forward, grabs the axe on the ground and throws it at 3502. He hits and the axe kills.

Alexis said...

Lukas - Kushi moves into the hex at 3205. Do you go there as well?

Alexis said...

(I'm going to post the next round as if Lukas did not - but we can make the change later. While I have the chance I want to keep this going)

Alexis said...

Oh, and Ganzor and Batath use their slings against 3302 and 3602. Batath hits 3602 for 3 damage. Doesn't stun.

Ahmet said...

Yay! Next post is up!
