Apologies again for the delay- it turned out to be longer than expected. I'm currently unemployed and am volunteering at various places, and gained some fieldwork. Good stuff, but trees have poor internet reception
@Zelt Arruin/ Ragnar- I don't think we've had 5-foot steps before in this game, so I went with option 2 from your list.
Greenskins move up again.
4,5= 9, so no new Greenskins again this round.
Starting from the top, the little squig rolls a 6- enough to see him bound over the wall and into Ragnar. Other squigs don't have to roll by this point.
The goblin Shaman advances, earning a stab from Ecthelion- 1- but the elf is clearly distracted by the closing squig, who he also stabs at as it closes- 5- and hits. 6- the squig's own weight sees it earn a nasty cut.
Again from top to bottom, the big Squig attacks the newly arrive bear-snack- 5 attacks with frenzy for a +1 to hit, Ws 5 vs Ws 6- 1,2,2,4,4- 2 hit. To wound- Str 7 vs T5- 4,6= 2 wounds off the bear.
Smaller squig vs Ragnar- 3 attacks, Ws 4 vs Ws6, with frenzy- 1, 1, 2. Not a good sign for that squig.
The Goblin Shaman on Ecthelion attacks- 2 attacks, Ws2 vs Ws5- 2, 6- 1 hit. Str 3 vs T3- 3. No wound.
The other big squig gets to take a bite. 5 attacks, Ws5 vs Ws5 but with Frenzy for +1 to hit- 1, 1, 2, 2, 5. At least it's a Str 7 hit vs t3- 3- and will wound. Ecthelion's necklace rolls a... 1. So a wound off the elf (only 1 from a big squig!?!), but thanks to Crippling Strike this also reduces the elf to Str 3.
Lastly Goblin 6 sees a good netting opportunity, and attempts to net Markus, Ragnar and Ecthelion together- Bs 3, so 4's to get eachof you, but any misses may entangle the big squig beside him. Vs Markus- 1. Vs Ragnar- 4. Vs Ecthelion- 3. Two fails, so two attempts to net the big squig- 1, 6- the big Squig is netted once.
So both the Big Squig towards the bottom of the map and Ragnar suffer a -1 to hit/ +1 to be hit, and -1 Movement, until freed (see first page on being freed).
In the hallway I've let Belerond push the cannon 1 inch further forward with his strength roll, while Griz has grabbed the powder barrels on his way out.
Shouldn't be long until you're in a firing position.
So on with-
(As a possible bit of forewarning I'm about to head out to a field trip for a few more days, and may then have another that lasts for 2 weeks after that. No confirmation on the second one though, so that may not be an issue).
