|The table set-up|
|Lingzhu at the start|
|Vaaron at the start|
|Kodak at the start|
|The Doctor at the start|
|Knabe ready to enter the ruins|
As Faenger (Treasure Hunter), Gauner (Thief), and Fritz (Marksman) move forward, Vogel attempts to cast Bone Dart towards Kodiak’s warband. He fails and suffers a minor burn for his troubles. A short while after that, he watches in awe as a giant worm explodes out of the frozen ground right under the feet of several of Kodiak’s henchmen.
|Glad that thing popped up in Kodak’s area|
Knabe and Vogel both fail to cast Bone Dart at one of the living statues (1 of 6 spells successfully cast so far). Crossbows miss their targets but Legio (Ranger) manages to kill one of Lingzhu’s thugs as he tried to make a play for a treasure item.
Fritz had been firing bolts at the Doctor’s warband all morning, with no real success. As he cranks the crossbow once again, he notices the Doctor looking his way. Suddenly, his crossbow crumbles in his hand. He decides it’s time to leave and beats a hasty retreat towards safety.
|Vogel takes out a giant worm|
|Knab’e’s Warband suffers s few casualties|
On the positive side, Vogel has gained some notoriety for slaying a giant worm. Knabe will be able to advance three levels. The warband managed to recover three treasures with 190 gold coins, Potions of Poison and Healing, and grimoires with Elemental Bolt and Reveal Secret. The magic casting wasn’t very good; with only 8 of 16 successfully cast spells. My spell distribution wasn’t good either: Bone Dart was attempted 12 times, Telekinesis 2 attempts, and Leap two attempts. I usually cast more Telekinesis spells, either to gain treasure or deny it to other warbands, but the Draining Word make it too difficult to mess with; that plus all the statues and the two worms made Bone Dart more of a necessity.
