The Bull Trips Up - Minotaur Round 16


Only the bull can take action.

It swings its head wildly from side to side, attacking both Ahmet and Bert ... but as it swings its head towards Ahmet first, it slips on the blood (rolling a 1 on its attack die), knocking its nose on the ground.  The other horn attack is thrown off balance and doesn't happen.

There is still the bulk of the beast, however, and incidental damage is still done to first Ahmet, who takes 2 damage from the bull's head as it butts against the fighter's leg ... then as the bull backs, to regain its balance, it's hoof scrapes Maximillian's foot, causing 1 damage.  Neither is enough to stun anyone.

Everyone can take action.  The Berts will flee to 0608, hopping over the minotaur's legs.

6 darts thrown.

Andrej steps to 0607 and swings:

to hit: 17
dmg: 6

(OOC: Been real lucky with the rolls this combat, waiting for the other shoe to drop...)

Alexis Smolensk said...

(OOC: You've all been very lucky; even Maximillian is punching above his weight)

Maximillian Boii said...

(OOC: I know, it's been great!)

Again to the bull:

d20+3: 11
I doubt that hits, but
d6+2: 8

Ahmet said...

Ahmet joins in the meat tenderizer party:

To hit: 12
Damage: 10

Alexis Smolensk said...

Andrej and Ahmet both hit; and together they stun the creature enough that it doesn't move or attack. That means I don't need to put up another round.

Please, EVERYONE CAN TAKE ANOTHER FULL ROUND.

Ahmet said...

Keep pouring it on, boys!

To hit: 15
Damage: 8

Maximillian Boii said...

to hit: 20 (not natural)
dmg:6

Lukas said...

Lukas throws another dart

d20: 5

Woosh.

7 darts thrown.

Andrej said...

to hit: 6

Meh.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Well.

Ahmet manages to kill the bull. Maximillian's blow, striking a moment later, only serves to hack meat.

(This would be still using the dexterity first method - in future, I believe I'm going to consider the order of hits as follows:

A. Fastest move first.
B. Highest dexterity as a tie breaker.
C. Highest wisdom as a tie breaker.

If wisdom doesn't break the tie, I will split damage)

Ahmet got 5 h.p. x.p. for that last blow.

The x.p. table has been added to the post above. Please check my math.

Maximillian Boii said...

My numbers look right, except you don't grant me bonus xp for some reason.

Ahmet said...

"Fastest" meaning the first one to post, or fastest meaning the fastest action (for example, my move is "I attack", Maximillian's move is "I move two hexes and then attack", mine is "faster").

Maximillian Boii said...

To be more clear, I meant the 10% bonus.

Alexis Smolensk said...

You should be getting it, Maximillian. I'll fix that.

"Fastest" meaning if you have 5 AP, you attack before someone with 4 AP.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Table fixed.

Andrej said...

Nice... about 5K more until 6th level.

Andrej said...

Andrej begins to loot the bodies and this room.

Then we can see about the adjoining room.

Lukas said...

Lukas will take this time to thank Bert... "Thanks Bert, I was in a rough spot there."

Then he will help Andrej.

Just a question, are we out of healing magic at this point?

Alexis Smolensk said...

There isn't much to loot. The minotaurs are wearing leather half-skirts designed for modesty. The trough has about 60 lbs. of some sort of seed grain that you don't recognize. The abacus is constructed of stone beads and hardened wooden bars, with brackets of metal.

Alexis Smolensk said...

(OOC: I didn't give a schedule for today. I'm going to step away now until 1 PM EST. I'll find you then)

Andrej said...

Let's check out the adjoining room from where the 2nd minotaur emerged. Agreed?

Lukas said...

Actually, not really. I'm curious if we've expended all healing magic.

If so, yes, we need to check it out. If not, I would like to see about how we wish to parcel that healing magic out...

I'm not too fond of adventuring at -2

Ahmet said...

I feel your pain Lukas.

Agreed, let's search the second room.

Andrej said...

Andrej heals Lukas with his aid spell:

12 hit points


and Ahmet with his cure light wounds:

5 hit points

He then moves into the adjoining chamber.

Lukas said...

Thanks. I feel much better about proceeding now.

And I do so.

Maximillian Boii said...

FYI, I have gained a level and have been greedily reading all the spell descriptions.

I roll a 3 for my hp, gaining 5, bringing me to 13/32 hp.

I also cast Cure Light wounds, but I think the hp will be better used on Andrej then Lukas or me, so Andrej, you heal 8.

Andrej said...

You are most welcome, Lukas.

Congrats Max.

Andrej said...

Oh, missed that last part. Thanks Max.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Let me go see what the wiki says about Druids.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Maximillian, I've added the spell additions for druids to the wiki. Hope the link works.

It says, basically, at 3rd level you get a 1st and a 2nd level spell. This differs from the old player's handbook.

Alexis Smolensk said...

For the record, Maximillian's THACO improves to 19.
