Another weekend has passed, and another quest has been played. This time it was the last quest from Kellar's Keep: Grin's Crag.
The Dwarf heads up to the door, ready to open it on the next turn. The Elf gets behind him, in case the dwarf needs to run in or out, so she can shoot her crossbow.
The Barbarian walks up to the others, opening the door as he passes the dwarf, looking in to decide if he should run inside, or take his position next to the Dwarf.
A goblin runs up and attacks the Dwarf, but misses!
The Wizard swings his staff, and hits the goblin for one point of damage which it cannot deflect, and it dies. The Dwarf moves out of the way so the Elf can shoot at the fimir inside. She takes the shot, and successfully kills the fiend.
A second goblin decides the elf must be taken down, so it runs up and does 1 damage to the Elf. Another goblin pursues to aid his comrade.
The Wizard tries to hit the second goblin standing just inside the doorway, but misses. The Elf next kills it with her crossbow, leaving 2 orcs and 2 goblins.
One of the orcs runs out to attack the Barbarian, and rolls 3 skulls. The Barbarian quickly gulps down a potion for extra defense, and rolls 5 dice. He manages only 2 white shields, so the Barbarian takes 1 damage. He immediately gets his revenge though, killing the orc with a 2 vs 1 roll.
The last goblin is so panicked, he runs for the weakest Hero, the Wizard, but misses him. Without delay, the Barbarian chops off it's tiny head, so the Wizard can search the room for hidden traps. He finds nothing.
The Elf searches room one for treasure, and finds 25 gold hidden away. Hurray! She follows the Dwarf to the next room.
The Wizard follows the rest, and the Dwarf opens the door to the next hallway. He searches but finds no traps outside the door. The Elf steps out into the hallway, and searches the rest of the hallway for traps or hidden doors, but finds nothing.
He immediately runs up to the first orc he sees, and kills it. The Wizard stays with him, in case of emergencies.
The Dwarf follows the Elf, and checks the next corner, looking for more traps in the corridor ahead. Still nothing.
Another goblin strikes at the Barbarian, nibbling away another body point. Obviously, it is the last mistake it ever made, as the Barbarian stabs it through the chest with his sword. He takes a step towards another goblin, so the Wizard can get next to him, and use his staff.
The second goblin in this room attacks the Barbarian, and rolls 2 skulls! But the Barbarian laughs at the little creature's feeble attempt, and shrugs off the attack with 4 white shields. "Puny goblin!" he laughs, and strikes back for one skull worth of damage. But what's this? The ugly little thing blocks the attack! The Wizard can't hide his grin, but helps out, and smacks the goblin on the head with his staff, splitting it's tiny skull.
The remaining orc in the dining room attacks the Barbarian, and strikes him for 3 skulls, but the Barbarian fails to defend them, and takes 3 damage!
The Dwarf finds no traps in the hallway, and the Elf (who doesn't want to wait for the others) opens the first door. She lets out a little shriek as the stands face to face with a chaos warrior commanding a group of 4 orcs, 4 goblins and a fimir!
The Barbarian and the Wizard run along the corridor to aid the others. The Wizard decides to use his Genie spell on the chaos warrior, and manages 3 skulls versus zero black shields. The evil warrior is dead! The Elf steps back to make room for the others.
Another goblin attacks the Elf, and rolls 2 skulls, but the Elf deftly defends with three white shields.
The Wizard sees his chance, and standing next to the Elf, he kills the little monster with his staff.
The Dwarf waits while the Elf shoots her crossbow again, this time at the fimir, who can only ward off one of the two hits she scores, and it dies.
He attacks back, and with two skulls he kills the evil creature.
Next, the Dwarf heads into the room, and slays another orc, followed by the Elf, who shoots another orc, but this one manages to dodge the crossbow bolt, and survives.
Now the orcs retaliate! One orc attacks the Dwarf, doing 2 points of damage, leaving the Dwarf at 4 body points. The last goblin attacks the Elf, but again, she manages to ward off its attack, and takes no damage.
The Barbarian has rejoined the group, and runs inside to kill the last goblin. Seeing the other in control of the situation, the Wizard heads towards the next door. The Dwarf kills the last orc, and after the Elf searches for traps and hidden doors, she heads out.
He walks towards the next room, and after listening for grunts or other sounds, he hears nothing and opens the door. It is empty save for an alchemists bench.
The Wizard searches for traps here, but finds nothing. The Dwarf follows them and finds 100 gold pieces in the alchemists table.
The Elf walks out, and heads for the next corner. She spots an orc standing there, so she fires her crossbow and kills it.
The others follow, and the Elf searches the next corridor for traps. At the next corner she spots another orc.
It immediately attacks the Elf, rolling 2 skulls, but the Elf fortunately rolls 2 defense, so she blocks the attack.
As the Barbarian enters the wider corridor, he looks for traps, and again finds nothing. Confident the exit is near, the others head on through the corridor into the next. At the last corner, they spot the exit door, and another search reveals no traps.
It attacks the Elf, but only rolls 1 skull, which the Elf manages to block with 1 white shield.
The Barbarian attacks it but misses completely!
The Wizard cannot cast any spells at this monster, as it is immune, and the Dwarf cannot reach it.
The Gargoyle rolls 5 dice as well, but only rolls 1 black shield. He takes 3 damage, which happens to be exactly it's amount of body points, and it crumbles to dust.
The door ahead magically opens, and once again our brave Heroes escape the dungeon.
