The conclusion to the Halloween Basic D&D extravaganza.
Things are looking grim for the forest defenders.
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.
Snowdrop the Penguin orders the animals forwards.
Only one Orc chases them, but Liam is heavily wounded and Billy is out of healing.
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...
Blueberry: Jackalopes go help the boys up north. I will go to the Weirwood!
The Orc with a 2 handed axe laughs and attacks!
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: If we can beat up this one Orc quick, then maybe the rest of us can stand a chance against that meaner bigger Orc.
Agnes: Oh no. I didnt think he would do that! I messed up! Now no one is free to save the Tree!
Its Blueberry the fairy dragon!
Agnes: OK, everyone! Go help Bluebell, quick!
Will no one be able to stand up to this monster?
Which means Warlord Hulku is the last enemy standing.
Tommy, Katie, Unicorn, and Panther reach the hill.
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.
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: Of course! Unicorns are magical!
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?
Katie: Aww c'mon, tell us! Who is he?
Agnes: Santa Klaus...
Agnes: Just kiddin...
Agnes: Alright... My dad!
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.
