FG: Run of the Rangifer (Part One)


The second scenario JP and I played was the next thaw of the Liche Lord campaign scenario – Run of the Rangifier.

Nominally it was a good idea to keep the Rasngifers alive as (a) that got you more Xp, and (b) it was part of the fluff.

So we both went in to it with that idea.

Six treasure chests were on the table, each guarded at the beginning by a Rangifer.

Intending on keeping them alive, I was planning on using Blinding Light, and then drawing the Rangers out before one of my thugs crept in and nicked the treasure behind them.

Of course, Holbron’s enemy, the excrescence that is Thaddeus *who is EVIL and must be destroyed), had other ideas and simply pitched his minions to slaughter the Rangers.

They promptly slew a Rangifer in the first turn just two get their hands on the loot.

Of course, picking up the treasure, a monster encounter was triggered, and where di it appear – behind Holbron, who promptly despatched a thug to deal with the ice spider.

Despite being Blinded by magic, the Rangifer right in front of Holbron managed to put out of action the archer sent in to collect the treasure after ignoring the taunts from in front. Another 20 rolled by JP !

Over on the other side of the board, Thaddeus’ minions closed in on the treasure and the Rangers, and both of us cast Wall spells to shut down our inaction with the Rangers as far as possible.

The ever reliable flank attack by Fluffy the war hound, ends in the usual debacle.

All this ruckus attracted the Wraith Knight, who trashed Thaddeus’ Zombie and advanced forward with purpose.

Before being defeated by Blue Peter, Thaddeus pet Knight.

Meanwhile, Holbron’s crew surged forward and playing tug of war via telekinesis had wrested control of a treasure chest only for a Demon summoned from the nether regions by Thaddeus attacked, and then a Rangifer added to the mix.

By now both war bands had realised their plans to NOT kill the Rangers weren’t working and the Rangiufers were running amok.

My Treasure Huntress, jumped down from the upper storey onto some barrels in the middle of the fracas intent on retrieving the treasure that Oddleigh had purloined. Only to be struck down by Thaddeus’ bone dart (ooh err missus).

Only for one of my Rangers on the walkway to roll a 20 and skewer Thaddeus with his arrow.

Derring do indeed.

To be continued, because we have one wizard down, and more violence to come !!
