FG: The Final Battle (Part Two) – How to kill a Liche Lord

The Wraith Knights started stalking purposefully toward our two war bands. Fortunately, one for each of us.

the first one got to Thaddeus’ war band, before the one (far left) was just behind a piece of scenery where I had an Archer, Ranger and my Captain. (The Green Knight despite being buffed with fleet feet was still some way behind)

Ipounced with the three aforementioned figures utilising my Captain’s Group Activation (3) trait. This enabled my Captain to put the foul undead out of this world – especially as she had been equipped with a Ring of Life giving her another bonus on her Fight skill.

Moments later, the other Wraith Knight was despatched by Thaddeus’ minions.

In the mean time Thaddeus’ war band had also been exchanging fire with the Liche Lord to mutual ineffective. (I expect nothing less of Thaddeus, but the Liche Lord ?)

So Holbron cast Draining Word on the Liche Lord’s favourite spell (Elemental Bolt) just too help buy some more time.

Thaddeus sent his usual demented mutt into combat with the Liche Lord. Typically Jon rolled a 20 in combat ! But of course cringing canines do not come equipped with magical teeth, so the combat was technically won by Fluffy even if no damage was done. BUT this move did mean the Liche was immobilised and unable to cast magic as both of us moved in for the kill now all the Liche’s minions were dead dead. (They’re dead Dave, they’re all dead Dave.)

My Captain pounced at this opportunity ! Eager to claim the kill for herself and Holbron. By now even the Green Knight had caught up.

Thaddeus’ minions piled in as well.

But my Captain was the first to defeat the evil Liche Lord, and turn him in to a pile of dust and rags.
(I even forgot to add in the Elemental Hammer damage bonus I’d buffed her with the previous round !)

With the creator dead, the floating castle started to quake and fall apart. Naturally the coining scum of Holbron’s entourage seized two treasures and legged it.

Talking of cringing scum, as Holbron’s war band made for safety (it’s different to running away), they saw Thaddeus and Oddleigh (his odd apprentice) holding hands and dropping off the floating fortress. Sounds like they DESCENDED rather than TRANSCENDED. 😉

With all his war band safely on the ground, and proclaiming victory to the cheering crowds,Holbron was still not satisfied. Thaddeus had escaped his justice, and the cheap baubles in the six treasure chests had not slaked his thrust for riches of arcane power.

Something is changing here with my nemesis escaping, we must look to the future, intoned Holbron to his apprentice Gideon, and they weren’t even holding hands.

Yes, the campaign was complete, another excellent game had, leaving me with some questions to be resolved.
