Assault on the Camp
Ári finally agreed to come with the others, although was in an enraged state. Dwóin called out when he saw the Goblins, raising his hand to point. The Goblins had left their camp. Silé looked at Dwóin before nodding to him – the Goblins must all be killed.
Silé, Baeli, Fáli, Dwóin and Ári
12 Goblins, 4 with Shield (1 Sergeant), 4 with Orc Bows (1 Sergeant) and 4 with Spears (1 Sergeant)
To win, the good side must destroy the Goblin camp
Dwóin and Fáli raised their bows as the Goblins marched towards them. Dwóin’s arrow bounced off armour, whilst Fáli’s hit the ground in front of a Goblin. 2 Goblin arrows flew through the air, easily missing their targets. Fáli and Dwóin fired again, this time Dwóin missing his mark, with Fáli’s arrow bouncing off armour. Goblins clambered over walls as they rushed towards the hunters. The returning arrows only caused a little discomfort to Fáli.
Another arrow hit Fáli, burying itself in his thick armour, whilst he and Dwóin, distracted by the flying arrows, failed to hit the Goblins. Ári yelled out, thirsting for blood, as his axe flew through the axe, slaying one of the green creatures. The Goblins suddenly crashed into the Dwarves, the archers picking up their pace as they saw their comrades under attack. Ári killed another of the goblins with his axe, whilst Dwóin was wounded by a Goblin Sergeant. Fáli cried out as a Goblin stabbed him, falling to the floor in agony.
The Dwarves all gave mighty cries, as they attempted to push through the Goblin lines. Baeli smashed the thick skull of a Goblin, while his friends surged forwards. Silé gave a mighty cry, as Ári through an axe into the quivering mouth of a Goblin. Silé easily killed one of his enemies, his axe flying gracefully through the air, and through a Goblin.
Ari’s axe bit into one of the Goblin Sergeant’s, who was fortunate in surviving the wound. Baeli tried to nimbly avoid being hit on the head by a Goblin, and was not so fortunate. Ári quickly killed the Sergeant he was attacking with a skilfully thrown axe, before leaping at other Goblins. The Dwarves were now in an incredible fury, launching themselves relentlessly against the Goblins. Ári’s throwing axes claimed another Goblin, as he and Baeli rushed to help Silé, who then killed the last Goblin Sergeant. Ári suffered a bitter blow from a sneaky spear, as Baeli was knocked unconscious. Silé found himself caught in a battle between himself and 2 Goblins, who started running from the fearsome Dwarf. After a tiresome duel, he killed one of the Goblins, ending the life of the final Goblin with an axe to the skull.
All the Dwarves make Full Recoveries, they’re made of stern stuff
Good Victory – 4 Influence Points (total 13).
Silé is now on 14 experience points, with Baeli on 9, allowing Silé to roll on the Hero Advance Table. Ári, Fáli is on 5 experience points and Dwóin is now on 6 experience points. Nári is still on 2. However, Ári, who went on a rampage, is now on 11 experience points!
Ári is promoted to an Iron Guard (although doesn't get armour bonus and keeps special rule). Silé increases his Courage by 1. Dwóin increase his Fight to 5/3+. The other Dwarves have no effect.
“Well done my friends,” Silé congratulated the Dwarves. “We have successfully destroyed their camp, and thus reduced the threat on our people. They may return, but when they do, we’ll be ready for them. But now we must find somewhere safe to rest – follow me.”
