Battle Thread 9: A pair of cave trolls
« on: December 13, 2007, 01:29:35 PM »

The two troll guards round the corner and the party gets a surprise round. I'll assume Dekion & Throm tke an attack each (Throm's going for a big power attack because it's a surprise round)

Initiative order is:
Throm 27
Rhana 22
Troll 1 16
Troll 2 15
Sarian 12
Dekion 8
Ellion 7

Throm takes a 5 point power attack and rolls a shocking natural 20 (for 26). His confirmation roll comes in at 19 (I doubt he'll be doing that again anytime soon). His blow does 49 damage and the troll's head comes off.

Rhana, Sarian & Dekion get to take an action each now and then round 1 begins properly. These are Fighting Fantasy trolls, they aren't AD&D trolls.

Dekion goes with a full attack on the remaining troll (4 points).

Well you only get one attack in a surprise round but I'll roll it in abit :).

Attack roll 21 (base 12), 16 damage. The troll looks pretty badly hurt. In round 1 Throm strikes at it (3 point power attack), attack 15, damage 20 (I forgot that power attack doubles on two handed weapons, ammending his damage in the first post now).

It goes down, fight's over.

(if we get to round two) Ellion steps up and casts "guidance" on Dekion.

Thanks for the help Bodhi. We can save that for the first big beast we will face I guess. Balgin came back and fixed his post and the fight is over. It is nice having another heavy hitter in the group.
