Undead vs heroes Vassal report
12/10/04 at 8:45pm
 
G'day all,

Slightly long post.  Wink

We started the Vassal game with high hopes which soon diminished as we found that Malechi once agian was cursed with the Mac that would not behave. After spending half an hour trying to solve his problems, he left in what can only be decribed as disgust.

It seems Mal is never to partake in the glory of Vassal.  Smiley

After this initial hiccup, gaming went smoothly. mort took on the dwarf, Zakath took the elf and wizard, and Roman took the Barb. I took Morcar's role.

Things started well for the heroes as they descended into the maze that belonged to Melar. A large amount of orc grease on the floors resulted in the dwarf moving at an excrusciating slow pace. The heroes seemed unable to decide on which way was the best to go, coming and going and just basically hanging out at the entrance to the dungeon.

The other heroes were wary of traps and so waited til the dwarf could use his special skills. The dwarf being wary himself told the elf to go in first. Eventually the heroes moved through the lower right of the board and animated the gargoyle statue which was then quickly demolished by the judicial use of the genie spell.

The other skeletons were dealt with quickly. The dwarf sensing that there was a trap on the other side of the door had Pass through rock cast on him so that he could skirt the entrance (very clever) but he still fell foul of the trapped treasure chest.

The Barb meanwhile had decided to take the northerly route around the board and came upon a might mummy who just refused to die. This dance went on for a number of turns before the mummy finally succumbed but not before bringing the barb down to half his BP.

Finally, the group manage to converge on the centre room, although the elf and wizard decide that cowardnes is the better part of valour and hang outside the door while the barb and dwarf take on the rest of the undead.

The dwarf is surrounded by undead as he enters the centre room and gets Rock skin cast on him by the wizard. This avails him naught as he loses it immediately to a clever skeleton who hacks off his right ear.

The dwarf manages to dispatch a zombie skeleton which allows the barb to enter the room with courage being cast on him. But no matter how many attacks he makes, solitary skull rolls fopllow him and he fails to wound the undead. The undead on the other hand have had intense training in self defence and manage to roll black shields almost every roll.  Grin

Finally it was down to the four heroes vs two undead and yet they still couldn't finish them off. The elf was almost brought to his death but managed to save on a white shield. Now down to 1 BP. The wizard decides that throwing a dagger might do some harm to the skelton but of course he was mistaken.

The skeleton was dispatched and it came down to the mummy who had to just roll one black shield to survive this turn and kill the elf on his next turn. Alas he rolled all skulls and his life was over.

The heroes then found the Talisman of Lore and made good there escape with barely any resistance left.

This was a great game with interesting battle croes (Go for the Groin! being a favourite). it was a pity that Mal couldn't join in but we had a blast nonetheless. I look forward to having another game soon and hopefully with new players as well.

Go to the last page and find the link to the latest module (it's one of Malechi's posts) then go to the first page and go to the vassal homepage, clink the link to 'lunch vassal' hopefully that will help. There only seems to be major problems on Mac and Linux.
