Sent out to escort green recruits back to town. Ambushed by Ratkin and saved town from rampaging soldiers.
After Action Report:
(Note: This is written in such a fashion as to be all but undeciferable by the average reader. the text is written upside downs and backwards starting in the lower right hand corner and drifts back and forth between the languages of Galean, Goblinesh, Kalinesh, and Childer. When done, it looks like a bunch of meaningly scrawls and splotches. Grontmomble reinforces this impression with vague sketches of events in stick figures. The fact that gront’s syntax is poor at best doesn’t help much.)
Contained within are the details of the second mission, in which Grontmomble and crew are sent out with previous new recruit to meet up with additonal green recruits (please send experienced troops in the future) and escort them back to town.
Group consisted of Grontmomble, Leader
Sarcastic Scales, Dragorian Warrior Assistant
Doesnt-Do-Much, Dwarf Tinker,
Blowhard-Lotta-Wind, Avikar Archer and Scout
Sarccastic Scales is a capable assistant. Consider promoting him to command status to he stops assisting Grontmomble.
Ambushed by Ratkin on way back to town. Distracted by wounded guardsmen in road. Battle not long lived (it was Ratkin, after all). Majority of rats killed by Grontmomble. Sarcastic-Scales assisted with one death. One death also noted by Tinker. Blowhard Elf circled over head and rained down words (And an arrow or two)
Party advanced on burning town after scouted by Blowhard. Reports Kalinar Troops pillaging and burning the town and abusing the villagers. Party split to circle town. Poor idea, dont do this again.
Grontmomble laid low with crushing blow by pillaging troops after failing to sneak into the town. Gront proceded to occupy the attention of two of the six attacking groups. Troups led by Battle Priest (wielding Flames) and Minotaur.
Avikar danced around in the wind to distract troops. Claims to have saved Grontmombles life. Gront took two additional (temporarily) crippling blows, one of which made riding horses somewhat difficult. Much better now.
Note to Command Staff: Healers are NOT optional equipment.
Combat slowly whittled down the base troops to the amusement of the Battlepriest. Dwarf and Lizard occupied other troops while Grontmomble attempted to recover from lame wound, shot to the groin, and winding attack. Blowhard distracted remaining combatant by kicking up dirt into its face with wings.
Avikar did NOT save Grontmombles life. Repeat, despite Blowhards claims, he did NOT save Grontmomble. Grontmomble was just fine.
Lizard throws impressive throw of spear at Minatour, not doing any damage by annoying the hell out of it. Battlepriest closes to fight and knocks Tinker for a loop. Tinker already a bit loopy, so perhaps knocked him for another loop.
Lot of scuffling.
Lizard kills Minotaur. Please promote him. Now.
Battlepriest flees in face of oveerwhelming odds, leaving him troops behind.
Grontmomble finishs battle by falling on remaining combatant. This was done on purpose to subdue him and take him prisoner for interogation. Obtained name of cowardly battlepriest.
Seems the Kal are retreating north with orders to burn and pillage as they go. Battlepriest has likely fled home.
Oh yes, note to Command Staff, Ow. Ow ow ow ow ow. Please promote Lizard.
This was the second game at Malcon Denver 2013
