It's clear to Ragnar that the Orcs weren't caught off guard by his impetuous rush. It's also clear that he isn't likely to make it to the trap door before he would be cut down by 3 to 4 Orcs, thanks to his spanking. Time to regroup so that we can even the odds with 3, then 4 alternating attacks.

Ragnar: "Sneeks, get that spear from Sarymor. I need you both in here or I'll never make it to the trap door they are entering from. Garmin, hold steady. We'll cut a path in soon enough." Ragnar attacks, then moves west 1 square.

Ragnar attack:
Daedalus rolled 3 6-sided dice:
2, 2, 5


Orc defense:
Daedalus rolled 2 6-sided dice:
6, 2


"Defend that thrust, foul villian!"

Why did you move back!? Now all orcs can spill into the kitchen :O
Standing in the doorway, you could only be attacked by 2 orcs. Now they can attack multiple targets :(
Sneeks will get the spear as soon as he passes Sarymor. It's Morcar's turn now though.

Morcar's Turn

The Orc's choose to hold their ground and wait for reinforcements.
(I'm gambling on a poor attack here from whoever chooses to enter the Pantry ;) )

I stand corrected. I forgot Garmin moved so that only a single orc might walk out. Brilliant! Now Garmin can stand in front of the door and attack diagonally :D

Well, let's move into the kitchen. Maybe we can find something to eat for poor Sneeks.

Sneeks moves:
Sjeng rolled 2 6-sided dice:
2, 1


As he passes Sarymor, he grabs the spear back. MINE!

Sarymor moves:
Sjeng rolled 2 6-sided dice:
2, 5


Where do you need me to stand Sir?
While Ragnar decides, Sarymor searches for treasure in the kitchen.

Well, as I, beeing the author, would like to limit my influence on the course of play as much as possible, Garmin will follow Sjeng's advise.
1 square north (no roll necessary)
Attack:
Big Bene rolled 2 6-sided dice:
1, 3

Orc defense:
Big Bene rolled 3 6-sided dice:
6, 3, 4

Seems enough.
Have a look ;)

Looks like your gamble is paying off, Road Warrior. I guess I should have made things more clear. Our goal is to get a figure on the trap door to prevent reinforcements and kill the remaining Orcs within the room. We had a chance to do that, just now. (Sorry for my late reply.) Seeing now how the Orcs have the advantage in waiting, it's my turn to gamble. There's nothing for Ragnar to do but move back into the meat grinder. Do your worst, Evil Sorcerer player.

"Garmin, if I don't make it, it's up to you to advance to the trap door and give your comrades a chance for safer attacks. Sarymor, Sneeks, we really need your attacks. One or both may yet get the chance for diagonal attacks if you position correctly. Eventually everyone will have to get in there to mop up before myself or Garmin is cut down. Back to the breach--we may yet win the day!"

Ragnar moves next to the Orc on the trap door and raises his sword for a mighty blow.

Attack:
Daedalus rolled 3 6-sided dice:
1, 5, 2


Orc defense:
Daedalus rolled 2 6-sided dice:
2, 4


Looks like the dice roller likes me. :)

So, Ragnar is inside with 4 orcs.

Sneeks rolls movement:

Sjeng rolled 2 6-sided dice:
4, 4


He steps in front of the door, behind Ragnar, and uses his spear to attack the northern orc diagonally.

Sjeng rolled 2 6-sided dice:
4, 3


The orc defends:

Sjeng rolled 2 6-sided dice:
4, 5


Sarymor moves:

Sjeng rolled 2 6-sided dice:
6, 4


He runs into the storage room, and stops in front of the cupboard, middle square, and shoots the orc south of him.

Sjeng rolled 3 6-sided dice:
4, 6, 1


Orc defends:
Sjeng rolled 2 6-sided dice:
4, 4


Awesome. Just 2 orcs left! :D I hope Garmin can skewer one with his halberd. Oh, and don't forget to stand on top of the trap door ;)
