FG: The Complex Temple (again)

Now this was a scenario that Holbron Toddlebrew had not taken part in, luckily as the previous running of this scenario had resulted in some trembly lower lip from JP when he had lost a Captain and a Thug fighting against the inanimate pillars.

Jim and I reorganised the table and nominated the 6 statues, 3 three outside the central Weathertop scenery piece, and three within.

So Holbron set up ready to aim for two pillars he would personally attack (lots of XP !)

He decided to take a few minions with him to hand the treasure on to.

Just as well – after inevitably losing the first initiative roll, his minion archer died first shot by a bone dart from…

…the Insidious Doozelbat who rolled a 20 on the to hit roll…

But that didn’t stop Holbron from moving up and attacking the first pillar and getting the treasure.

Dppzelbat tried to retrieve the treasure by summoning an Imp, only for Holbron to use the Push spell to get rid of that nuisance. Oh, and we already had Fleet Feet running on Holkbron just to hasten things along.

Faster than a speeding snail, one of Doozelbat’s minions attacked a lump of rock to try and get some treasure, and was there 4 rounds later. Meanwhile Fido raced past him in a vain effort to eviscerate Doozelbat’s sidekick, only to be turned to the dark side (Yes, Fido, I am YOUR FATHER…no wonder Doozelbat is unpopular even amongst the wenches).

Meanwhile, Holbron sent thugs into the centre of the board to get some more treasure, with the first Thug being successful, but the Captain less so.

Passing the buck$…
Apothecaries are great for a starting warband as they come with effectively a free healing potion every game. pLus they are another pair of hands to shift treasure.

Pillar two defeated by himself !

Not only did the Captain not defeat the pillar properly she got jumped by one kid the enemy. Fortunately, my Apprentice managed to push another minion back preventing a multiple combat.

Push, a much forgotten spell I’d just rediscovered.

But it wasn’t gpood enough because…

Doozelbat appeared and bone darted her, despite me using a Drain Power spell.

Doozelbat was sent packing with a other Push spell, before my Apprentice Gideon went to try and pick up the treasure and paid for it with his life.

Better late than never, Doozelbat’s minion finally defeated a lump of rock, and got the treasure.

A fairly even game.
