Well, I just started a topic. I'm in for this one. I'm Sarymor, and if needed also Garmin or Ragnar.
Big Bene is also in, and the road warrior is playing Zargon/Morcar.

Let's roll!

Movement:
Sjeng rolled 2 6-sided dice and got a total of 10:
6, 4


how to use the roll code: use the [ dice] and [ /dice] tags, without the space, and inbetween them, type 2d6, or 3d6, or 4d6 etc. Also state if you are rolling for movement or for attack/defense. Preview doesn't work. Place each roll on a seperate line.

I will be using Heroscribe instead of photos to update the game as I don't have room to keep a game board up at home at the moment.

For this quest, instead of the traditional Heroes we play as Sir Ragnar and three of his trusty companions (They are represented by the four men-at-arms icons).

  • Sir Ragnar - The Swordsman
    Attack - 3
    Defence - 4
    Body - 6
    Mind - 4
  • Sneeks - The Scout
    Attack - 2
    Defence - 5
    Body - 4
    Mind - 4
    * Sneeks has a Dwarf-like ability to disarm traps
  • Sarymor - The Crossbowman
    Attack - 3(1)
    Defence - 4
    Body - 5
    Mind - 3
  • Garmin - The Halberdier
    Attack - 2
    Defence - 4
    Body - 5
    Mind - 3

I will copy this list at the end of each round of turns along with the Heroes inventory.

The small Northern town of Birkenthal has been beseiged by Orcs and a company of a hundred of the Empire's men has been sent on an expedition to liberte the town. Command of the expedition has been given to Sir Ragnar.

We join the expedition on the road north. It is dusk and Sir Ragnar has ordered a halt outside a big building whose windows give a warm, inviting orange shine in the darkness. “Ye Four Fat Pigs Inn” reads the sign outside the tavern.

You can read Big Bene's full introduction to the quest here.

Quest 1
The Four Fat Pigs Inn
Inside the inn, you find the four of yourselves, coincidentally, in a wide corridor leading to a double door, from behind which you hear the merry sounds of the guest eating, drinking, chatting and gambling. The other soldiers are out of sight at the moment, some setting up camp outside, some already preparing their rooms for night.

You may start on either of the two X's at the bottom (South) edge of the board next to the double 'In' door. Please state clearly which of the 4 Heroes you are moving when rolling the dice and which of the two X's you are starting on.

well, okay, Ragnar steps in, on the left X, and immediately searches for hidden traps and secret doors. He can view both the top and right hallways from where he's standing :)
clearing the way for the others. If there are monsters, and he can't search, he will wait for Garimor to enter, so he can use the crossbow.

Come now Sir Ragnar, this is nothing but a humble tavern. Swinging Axes and hidden pits would hardly be good for business. The only trap we employ here is our fine ale & excellent hospitality. Still, I suppose a great knight of the empire such as yourself must never drop his guard.

The corridors are clear and there are no secret doors.

Right you are! Shall I wait for Big Bene to move Sneeks before I move Sarymor? To stay in the order you posted the heroes in.
Let's see how good the ale tastes here |_P

No. Play in any order you wish, just make sure all 4 heroes have taken a turn before moving again (or tell me you are too cowardly to move and are going to stay where you are :D )

You are more than welcome to join in (I was hoping others would ask to join once we started :) ). Big Bene will be looking for feedback at the end of the quest if that is ok with you.
Sjeng has already moved Sir Ragnar but he is currently playing 2 Heroes, it is entirely up to him whether you can be Sir Ragnar or not.

If you could take Sneeks, then Bene could take Garmin, and we'd be full, unless another person joins in. If so, that person could be Sneeks, and you can be Ragnar.
