Of Orcs and Goblins

The heroes tracked the orcs to the lair, a huge dwarf made underground chamber which was slowly returning back to the earth. As it’s ceilings collapsed and stalactites began to form over time the cavern begins to become lost. Led by Lord Ryewood the warriors decided to eschew the secret entrance and enter quietly by the main gate. As they crouched in the dark ready to attack in surprise Whisper the shield warrior lost his balance and tipped over a huge crate of old bottles and metalware. This caused all the monsters to raise the alarm, closing in on our heroes and reinforcements rushed from all sides.

Lord Ryewood closed with the enemy stroking down the goblins but taking a deep wound in combat against the orc brute. Crusher the dwarven mage guard rushed to close with the goblin border to the right and also took a slight wound in combat. Bowstring the archer moved up and assisted Crusher. The Mage created a defensive shield as the goblin archers closed but Jeff soon cleared them and forced one to drop his bow. This proved fortuitous as Bowstring snapped his bowstring and had to retrieve said now leaving crusher to fend for himself against the remaining horde. Tripper the mage set off a bear trap, triggered an anti magic curse and stepped on a snake as he staggered forward hoping to get some treasure.

Whisper took on an Orc Brute as Jeff covered him with arrow support from the shadows and found a handy potion of vigour. Lord Ryewood narrowly escaped death thanks to his armour finally defeating the Orc Brute and moved to the left of the entrance clearing two hordes of goblins with Whispers help. In the centre Crusher took another wound and so steeped back to grab a shield only to be attacked from behind by a nature spirit! Fortunately he survived and held his ground while Bowstring cleared the remaining Orcs with the help of Tripper the Mage’s Magic darts. Seeing the fight going badly the remaining two Brutes fled the field whilst our heroes secured the remaining loot.

Returning back to town having cleared the den of goblinkin brigands they were richly rewarded and spent some time recovering and resupplying as shown above.

It was really good to play sellwords at last. The card driven autonomous system worked really well. Some really fun moments and surprising outcomes.
