Dungeon Chef: Quest For Meat Part 2 - Dire Pork Luau Party

The quest for dungeon meat continues...

Penny and Bertha close in on the southeast location and it is revealed to be number 5.

Manticore!  These vicious beasts are lions with wings and scorpion tails!  It is edible, but the meat is sure to be a bit wild and gamey.

The two girls wish they had brought more help with them.  This is going to be a life or death battle!  Penny levels her crossbow and unleashes bolts at the scary monster charging at her.  Bertha steps in front of Penny, grits her teeth, raises her cleaver and countercharges! 

Bertha: For King Kazador, Easthold, and the Reclaimed Kingdom of Moria!

Mochi has a string of bad die rolls and doesnt identify the token until he is close.

It turns out to be a whopper of a monster!  Its a Dire Boar.  Worth a tremendous 3 meat points.
But it has multiple wounds and is pretty tough to boot.  Wheres that Slayer, now that you need him?

Vincent: Want some bacon?
Jules: No man, I don't eat pork.
Vincent: Are you Jewish?
Jules: Nah, I ain't Jewish, I just don't dig on swine, that's all.
Vincent: Why not?
Jules: Pigs are filthy animals. I don't eat filthy animals.
Vincent: Bacon tastes gooood. Pork chops taste gooood. 

Waving Dwarf delivers the Grick to the tunnel and checks to see if Sleepy is doing his job.
Might have to put some coffee in his mug instead of beer.

Valdor the Slayer and Ratcatcher are back in the center again.
Choices, choices... where do these two go now?
Mochi needs help across the bridge in the north, but Penny and Bertha also need help against that scary manticore!

They split up!  Valdor heads north to make himself some pork chops.
Ratcatcher takes a party Dwarf (Cheery Dwarf) with him to help turn the tide against the Manticore.  And their combined attacks brings the monster down!

Meanwhile in the north, Rope Dwarf and Chumley decide to go for the north east objective.
It turns out to be number 6...

Giant Frog! The frog is worth 1 dungeon meat point and turns out to be a runner.  It hops away!
The two Dwarves run after it.

Mochi has trouble landing any blows on the Dire Pork, even with Dudley lending an axe chop or two.

Haru: Do not worry. A ninja knows when he is in danger.
[Tanley and his men fire machine guns at them]
Haru: Now we are in danger. We are really in danger. 
And then, what everyone feared would happen, happens...  the Undead show up.
Isnt it a little early in the year for Halloween?

And where do these trick or treaters show up?  Right on the doorstep of the southwest corner.
Even with the Drunken Dwarf sentry there, they will show up next turn.  Which means they are lurking at the entry point.

Another band of skeletons show up lurking outside the entry point of the northeast corner.
That Frog is doomed one way or another...

Cheery Dwarf leads the now passive Manticore to the south entrance.
Hey Sleepy, you still with us?

Seeing how useless putting a drunk Dwarf on sentry was for the southwest, Ratcatcher is nominated to sentry for the southeast.  He has a further +1 modifier for detecting enemy further out in the tunnel.
But it does keep him from helping out in combat elsewhere.

The Dire Boar will just not go down easily!  Valdor is finally here though, lets see how long that giant porkchop lasts against a Dwarf Slayer.

The Giant Frog is finally captured and dragged by Rope Dwarf and prodded by Chumley.

More Skeletons arrive in the southwest.

Six skellies lurk outside the northwest entry point, which is going to make it really really hard to capture the last objective point.

Dudley the woodcutter is knocked out by the Dire Boar.  Enraged by the fall of one of their own, Valdor brings the hurt down on the pig.  And finally, Mochi succeeds in wounding and Bonking it.

Haru: I may not be a great ninja; I may not be one with the universe; but I will say this: NO ONE MESSES WITH MY BROTHER.

Chumley picks up his buddy and carries him towards the bridge.

Chumley:  We have to abandon the north now!  Get that big pig moving!  Undead approach from both entry points...
