Scenario 1: Part 2--Troglodyte Attack

In the craziness of getting ready for travel to China, I have not been able to get the second battle report up but will post pictures at least.  This little skirmish saw the adventuring team take out a group of Troglodytes.

Scenario 1: Part 1--Kobold Ambush

In the first scenario of "Adventures in the Splintered Lands," a dragonman fighter/mage receives a telepathic message from a fellow dragonman mage that her band of adventurers has been ambushed and slaughtered by a vile necromancer.  She alone survived and is being held captive.  Before she can reveal where, the message was cut off.  The dragonman gathered a group of allies and set out to find and rescue (or avenge) his friend.

The Adventuring Band

The group was made up of a dragonman fighter/wizard, barbarian, undead hunter, paladin, 2 clerics, and 2 fighters; a human ranger, paladin, and undead hunter; and an elf assassin.

In the first turn of the scenario, the group moved up to and began climbing into a ruined building.  Immediately a horde of kobolds with 2 giant weasels poured out of passageways and the building towards the adventurers, who were divided by climbing in various parts of the building.

The Dragonman Undead Hunter, Cleric, and Fighter
In the roll for initiative, the kobolds won and charged the group.  The kobold mage got off a lucky charm spell and took over the human paladin, who turned to fight the dragonman barbarian.  Fortunately, neither did any damage to the other.  A first wave of kobolds fell before the adventurers but more were waiting behind.

First Round of Combat

The Fall of a Ranger
As the bulk of the band continued engaging the kobolds, the human ranger and elf assassin each charged a giant weasel.  The elf assassin made quick work of his opponent but the ranger failed to kill the weasel and ended up surrounded and wounded by the kobold chieftain.  In the next round of attacks and the ranger fell.   The kobold chieftain was then surrounded by 2 adventurers and the elf assassin charged the weasel, looking for payback.

He failed.

The Battle Winds Down

Over the next couple of turns, the adventurers whittled down the kobolds forces.  The kobold chieftain fell before the fighter/mage and cleric and the undead hunter put a bolt through the eye of the kobold mage.  The dragonman undead hunter climbed the stairs and slaughtered the kobold warriors on the battlements.

Now two men down, the adventurers gathered to move to the next stage of the quest to rescue their friend.

The Splintered Lands Adventures

Over the weekend, I introduced a couple of my son's friends to gaming and they loved it!  Archer just turned 10 and in addition to a regular party, he had 2 friends over for a special game.  I set up a ruined city and each boy led a band of adventurers in to pillage and loot the monsters.  Fun was had by all.

I decided to set up a whole area, including an wilderness area for what will hopefully be months of adventurers and skirmish scenarios.  Archer and I played a first stage in an adventure that I will write up tomorrow.

For now, here are some pictures of the ruined city and the wilderness outside.

In this first picture, the graveyard area is on the right, which will, of course, be the headquarters for various undead big bads.  There is also an old, abandoned manor house in the middle that is part of the wall surrounding the ruined city.

In this picture the focus is the ruined city.  On the right is a walled keep that will be the center of power for some nasty orc king or vampire lord.

From this side, the collapsed wall and swamp are in the center and left.  Various nasty critters like bullywugs and lizard men may be encountered there.  On the right is a hill ringed with stones, which will certainly be the focal point of some scenario.

In the final picture, the wilderness area is the focus and on the right is a small village, which will be either for a bear clan or wolf clan group of human barbarians.
