The Bull Charges Andrej - Minotaur, Round 15.
As the minotaur is again stunned, the bull - snorting and apparently crazed - stamps around the feed trough, ignoring the dancing lights, through 0604, 0504, 0505 and 0606 to slam into Andrej as hard as it can. As the bull weighs something like 1800 lbs., there's really nothing anyone can do to stop it on its course. Passing Bert, Lukas and Maximillian, it has the potential to do incidental damage ... and it does, to Lukas, causing 2 points from its flank as it turns to charge Andrej.
Because it's a bull, it doesn't need two rounds to charge (they're scary that way), only half its full movement ... and anyone who's seen a bullfight knows how fast this mean things can turn. Andrej feels a touch of protection against malevolence against the beast, but not enough to be unscathed. He's hit mid-drift, with one horn, taking 2d6 damage (I hit AC -1 and AC -3, the first knocked away by Bert's magic). I roll 7, which stuns Andrej (I believe he's at 25 hit points) ... throwing him against the door, for which I'll add another d3 of damage. Andrej takes 2 more, so 9 altogether (dropping him to 16).
Lukas is considered stunned, as it drops him to -2. Maximillian has to back into 0404 as the bull goes past.
Maximillian and Andrej can take action.
