Halfling Career Game: Three Thieves and a What?


I am getting ready to start a campaign game (advanced WQ rules after their 1st Adventure) with three Halfling Thieves and one ]Halfling Dabbler (rules hosted on my site).

If they survive, and I expect they will if they play smart and don't go off in different directions as I have seen players do in the past, then I look forward to seeing how they each develop in different ways. In my opinion, the Halfling Thief can be just as diverse in his/her development as the Chaos Warrior.

The Halfling Dabber should be able to provide some healing along the way. With Lunch Boxes all around, it should be fun!

I hope to report back to let any interested readers know how this turns out. It will be slow going though, since it is a sort of PBEM type of format.

Re: Halfling Career Game: Three Thieves and a What?


This game is being played by a very slow method (much like a PBEM). Here is a report of the first combat, in which the four halflings defeat a Minotaur!

quote:

Turn 2 - Power Phase: 6 - Unexpected Event - September,18 2011

Unexpected Event... ONE Minotaur appears next to Hildy, charging out of the shadows! Aha! You WILL (likely) get a room event as well (in Monster Phase).

NOTE: NO Fear rule out of the box -- which is how I am running this first Adventure. emoticon

Also, for our new player: I try to place a treasure chest object 'off the board' to help me track how many monster/treasure events are in play.

See my pinning ruling(s)

[the server] will roll your escape pinning test for you when you try to move normally. It will let you know if you fail, or it will let you move if you succeed.


WARRIOR PHASE

Hildy sinks her Short Sword into the Minotaur's hide deeply! (3 wounds).

Laiden Lightfoot arrived to break from pinning. Laiden Lightfoot move to South. He misses the Minotaur.

Daf hits the Minotaur with her staff too weakly to do any damage. Then she casts a nauseating spell upon it!

EFFECT IN GAME: The Minotaur is at -1 to hit the Warriors this turn.


MONSTER PHASE

A Portcullis slams down in the doorway of the entrance to the room, thus blocking off the entrance to the dungeon!

As the Halfling look about in the direction of the noise, they notice old bones littering the floor and what looks like shingy pieces of gold underneath! The Warriors may deal with the Old Bones event AFTER combat is over.

The Minotaur pulverizes Hildy with its second Attack (10 wounds!). Not even Daf's magic could stop it this time (6 to hit!).


REACTION PHASE

DAFLYNN HEDGEHIDER heals Hildy a little (5 XP). Hildy fails to grab a snack from her Lunch Box.
 
Turn 3 - Power Phase: 5 - September,19 2011

WARRIOR PHASE

Laiden misses.

Dagflynn misses too and then casts Nausea upon the Minotaur again.

EFFECT IN GAME: The Minotaur is at -1 to hit the Warriors this turn.

Daisy misses with her bow.


MONSTER PHASE

The Minotaur misses Daflynn once, but then takes her down with a single, powerful blow. (12 wounds inflicted, though she only had 10!)


REACTION PHASE

Hildy Flowers fails to harm the Minotaur with a weak blow.

Laiden Lightfoot misses.

DAFLYNN HEDGEHIDER move to South. DAFLYNN HEDGEHIDER move to South-East. She attacks the Minotaur, missing with her Short Staff.

"I know, I shall cut off its foot!" says Daisy as she only shaves off some of its leg hairs!

It has been so long now that I do not recall the details, but this game ended some time back.

Even in games where I have tried to temper the monster difficulty level for an all Halfling party, they somehow manage to usually get killed. emoticon
