(cracked a root beer)
Finally got a chance to jump in on Tim Shorts B/X Essentials game. (the monday night miserable bastards). The game start with us creeping up on a troop of Goblins near a old tower. We made a plan to dump a pile of oil flasks on the ground. Then we backed up and the halfling tossed a few molatov cocktails. We managed to roast most of the troop!
One of the players totally missed trying to wack a goblin, and managed to wack one of the other players. Thankfully he was wearing plate mail. DING!
(Note I'm writing this as we are playing)
FOUR ROLLS of a 1 by Joe the lawyer! How the hell does that even happen!
What are the damn odds! (Erik did the math actually. Crazy odds)
We looted the bodies, and found out that the goblins may in fact be working for a guy in Skorn. It appears he's working both sides (Baron Mowbray). And is attempting to cause trouble around houndshead, so that he can at some point take it over. This is not good.
(well it's good for us, because you know heroes).
We decided to check out the tower. There are small campfires coming from around the tower. So it's obviously inhabited.
The halfling has decided to scout the tower and surronding areas. There was some discussion about starting a fire a little ways away to try and lure the goblins out of the tower. We have decided against that course of action, and went full on murderhobo.
(second root beer)
Alright, one of the players just decided to walk right into the whole area. Alerting the goblins to our presence. honestly was a total mistake in roll20, but hey now we are in combat!
Alright, we are going to die!
It appears that the goblin would like to parlay.....
It appears we may have come to an agreement.
More information to come. We are off to see the baron with an offer!
