Kobalds Round 30: A Feeble Defense

Before the kobalds attack.
The kobalds haven't got much left; there are only three effective fighters this round.  The kobalds in 3103 attack Htuya and Salth.  Both miss.

The striped kobald in 3602 attacks Ahmet.  He hits AC 4, bouncing off Ahmet's armor - but he misses doing damage.

The kobald in 3302 finishes running up the stairs, where he grabs a sword from one of the bodies.

Here's the position (with additional space that Ahmet can see).  There is nothing but wall behind the hut in 3501.  The brown at the top of the stairs in 3701 is a large reinforced door.

Lukas presses upwards. If the area clears enough, or he can get a sightline from his current hex, he'll throw a dart at one of the enemies in 3103.

D20: 19 (15+4)
D3: 3

Hex 3305 is clearing; Lukas can't throw unless he's in a hex by himself, but assuming he moves to 3305, then his dart hits and the kobald dies.

Ahmet goes after Stripey in 3602.

To hit: 21 (huzzah! my first 20)
Damage: 14

Do I get two attacks against him -- or did that do it anyway?

Ahmet said...

Oh, I forgot -- am I at -1 for being on the stairs while he's at the top? Although then it's just a 20, not a 21 (+1 to hit for STR).

Andrej said...

Is Andrej able to spend 3 MPs to move through 3203 and into 3102? Would doing so foul Htuya?

Alexis said...

Ah, I got pulled away before I could get the note up on round 29. Thank you for doing that Ahmet.

Ahmet, so long as the roll is a natural 20, and so long as the modified natural 20 is two points above that which you need to hit, the damage is doubled. You are at -1 for the stairs, but as the kobald is AC 4, your modifiers are sufficient.

You don't get two attacks, but could you please roll the d20 again? If you roll ANOTHER natural 20, it is triple damage. If you roll a THIRD natural 20, it is quadruple damage.

I'll await to find out if 14 damage is actually 21 damage.

Andrej,

Htuya is using two movement points to enter the hex at 3102 (this leaves her two remaining to attack). Balther is going to attack 3103. That lets Andrej move into 3203 if he would like (cost 1 mp).

Alexis said...

Balther rolls, hits and kills the kobald in 3103.

Andrej said...

Andrej steps into hex 3203 and takes a swing at the kobald in 3202:

to hit: 9
dmg: 7

Alexis said...

Andrej, that is a miss.

Htuya drops her weapon (it lands in the hex she's in). It does not break.

The kobald will get another chance to do damage.

Alexis said...

Waiting to hear from Ahmet.

Ahmet said...

Back. Alas, it's a 17, which I would rather save for my next to-hit :)

Alexis said...

The 14 damage stuns, but does not kill; the kobald falls back onto the stairs of 3701. Ahmet can move into 3602, or not.

Ahmet said...

Yes, even though it will put guys on either side of him, I think Ahmet is better off on 3602. Hopefully Odval will follow and help.

Alexis said...

The remaining dwarves sort themselves out. Zoft throws his hammer at the kobald in 3502 and misses. Seth throws an axe and misses. Batath and Ganzor both fire their slings and both miss.

Alexis said...

Odval is right behind Ahmet, as is Culf and Erdina (just in case).

I will get the next round up immediately.

The next post is up.
