Little Heroes, Part5 - Conclusion Of Basic D&D Night

The conclusion to the Halloween Basic D&D extravaganza.

Billy runs out of healing and Max falls to the Orc Warlord!
Things are looking grim for the forest defenders.

Pegasus falls victim to a vicious Orc attack.
Billy and Liam are surrounded by giant green monsters.

Billy:  (backing up)  Ummm... Liam?

Liam:  Run for it, Billy!  I will hold them off!

Billy:  Naw...  lets both run for it!  

Liam:  What about the Tree?

Billy:  We cant help the Tree if we are dead...  and maybe we can draw off some of those Orcs to chase us.

Finally, the last forest force arrives!
Snowdrop the Penguin orders the animals forwards.

Billy and Liam run for it.
Only one Orc chases them, but Liam is heavily wounded and Billy is out of healing.

Agnes:  Um, Mr Fox?  Mr Toonces?  Do NOT charge those monsters!  Stay... 
Warlord Hulku and another Orc head to the Weirwood Tree and its defender...   Agnes!

Agnes:  (rolls up her sleeves)  OK, Magic Missile coming right up!!!

The spell smacks Warlord Hulku in the face, but the giant Orc just shakes his head and keeps his slow and menacing advance towards the littlest witch.

Agnes:  (gulp) I think I just made it more mad...

Just before the hulking monster reaches her, Snowdrop, Bear, and others attack the Orcs.

Meanwhile, in the south, Tommy strikes down Grubnob and secures that sector.

Blueberry and the Jackalopes speed off to help the others.

Blueberry:  Jackalopes go help the boys up north.  I will go to the Weirwood!

The Jackalopes link up with the boys and they reform into line.
The Orc with a 2 handed axe laughs and attacks!

Armadillo, Skunk, and Wolverine intercept an Orc that was about to charge Agnes.

Warlord Hulku smacks Turtle senseless. 
Bear is heavily wounded and then burned by Hulku's torch. 
Snowdrop gets hit by Hulku's torch as well.
They have had enough and run off down the hill.

Agnes charges in to help the others.

Agnes:  If we can beat up this one Orc quick, then maybe the rest of us can stand a chance against that meaner bigger Orc.

But Warlord Hulku, doesnt come to help the other Orc, he goes straight to the Tree!

Agnes:  Oh no.  I didnt think he would do that!  I messed up!  Now no one is free to save the Tree!
But something flutters in and saves the day!
Its Blueberry the fairy dragon!

Armadillo gets chopped, but Wolverine wounds the Orc and the unlikely Skunk lands a killing blow!

Agnes:  OK, everyone!  Go help Bluebell, quick!

But Warlord Hulku smashes the fairy dragon into a pulp.
Will no one be able to stand up to this monster?

Up north, the last Orc is knocked out.
Which means Warlord Hulku is the last enemy standing.

Hulku's last stand.
Tommy, Katie, Unicorn, and Panther reach the hill.

Before his defeat, Hulku is able to lash out at Skunk.
Tommy stands victorious with his magical +1 sword.
He looks around at the survivors. 
There are so few left, and every one of them is heavily wounded.

The saddest thing next to a battle lost... is a battle won.

The kids have only 1 Raise Dead scroll that they got from the Barrow Mound.

They use it on Max, of course.

Max:  I guess we won?

Billy:  Welcome back, Max!

Liam:  Thank Sigmar!

Max:  That big Orc Warlord?
Billy:  Tommy got him, but you made it easier for him by bringing its hitpoints way down.

Liam:  Hey, dont forget Agnes' Magic Missile!  Right Agnes?  (looks over at Agnes)  Oh...

Agnes looks down at the crushed fairy dragon.

Unicorn trots over and...

uses its last healing spell...  Blueberry is brought back to life.

Agnes:  Of course! Unicorns are magical!

Blueberry:  Dont worry, witch girl!  When Tom Bombadil gets back, he will set everything back to right. 

Agnes: Can he bring back all the lost animals?

Blueberry:  He sure can.  They say not even the wisest in Middle Earth knows who Tom really is.  But I do!

The fairy dragon whispers something in Agnes' ear.
Her eyes light up and all she says is, "oh..."

Tommy:  Um... So who is Tom?

Agnes:  secret...

Katie:  Aww c'mon, tell us!  Who is he?

Agnes:  Santa Klaus... 

Katie:  Really?

Agnes:  Just kiddin...

Katie:  Agnes!

Agnes:  Alright... My dad!

Katie:  Grrr....

Agnes:  (in a sing song voice) Secret!


So there is the last post for the Halloween Basic D&D Weekender. 
There might be another D&D adventure with the kids over Xmas, but we will see...

In the meantime, we have lots of ground to cover with our Oldhammer in the Shire campaign. 
The Shire campaign should wrap up nicely before the new year comes. 
Then another campaign theater will open up in our Imagi-Nations Middle Earth.
In fact lots of newly painted figures and terrain are just waiting to be revealed for it!
Things are gearing up here and the push for Dwarven supremacy in Moria is inevitable.

Stay tuned,
