Dungeon Delving: The Trial (Quest 1)

After an introduction to the two newcomers and letting everyone choose who was going to play what the first quest was started. It was the Barbarian that started off and sure enough he rolled barely enough movement to get out of the door. The Dwarf oddly dashed past him and opened the first door. On seeing it was 2 Orcs he kindly moved on to allow them to get pincered between him and the Barbarian. The Elf rolled right along with the Barbarian and the Weakling Wizard would take up the rear.

The Wizard was goaded into killing the 'measly' Goblin. He knew better but tried it anyways and was unsuccessful in dealing a killing blow. The goblin gleefully swung and connected with 2 skulls. It was only the second room yet the taunting from Zargon along the lines of 'Half your health with on mighty blow'. The wizard rolls his defense and the insult was returned with interest. Stupid Wizard and his lucky shields...

When they see 2 Warriors they back off and maliciously jump him at the doorway as he goes to attack. He quickly falls and the Dwarf goes in to kill the remaining Warrior.

When it was all over Zargon foolishly realized to add in his Chaos Warrior he was allotted. He vowed to make sure he wasn't forgotten and relocated his use to Fellmargs tomb.

The quests main room had been taken and the Heroes had been getting every gem and potion the deck could throw at them so far without a single hazard or Wandering Monster. ((It was at this point we had to break for the night and continued it the following week)). The heroes pressed on and followed the hallways that led to the room above the entrance stairway room. Clearing that they crossed the hallway and wrought havoc on the ensuing rooms.

Sadly at this point the Dwarfs meady body points were reduced below 0 and he fell.

With vengeance on their minds for their fallen hero they eventually killed the mighty guardian and reclaimed their comrades loot gear. With some trepidation they discussed whether to open the door. With delusions of grandeur they opened the door only to regret it.

 photo IMG_0902_zps88a927bf.jpgIt was then Zargon's turn to inflict some pain on the Sissy Elf. A few body points lower the Elf realized that the Barbarian was the meat shield for a reason and backed out. As it came to be the Wizards turn he gleefully cast Courage to improve the combat prowess of the Barbarian. The Wizard didn't realize until it was too late that his spell inadvertently turned the Barbarians weapon into a 'Wet Noodle of Limpness'.

 photo IMG_0904_zps3da0b69b.jpgTrue to form the Barbarian continued to limply whack the Mummy with his noodle ((4 full rounds of only 1 skull. Meanwhile black shields aplenty)) before the inadvertent Wet Noodle side effect wore off and the Mummy was finally lain to rest.

The final scene of carnage.

With their new found loot and their dead comrades gear in hand the Heroes triumphantly return to prepare for their next adventure.
