New Banner: You look like a Coatl, but you're a Naga in disguise

So, the stumpy winged Coatl was really a nasty human headed evil snake abomination that was bent on corrupting the god-fearing village of Pearlglen and sucking it dry.

Of course, your favourite band of deed-dooers were not to be fooled and soon revealed the Naga for what she was and defeated her and her puny entourage with some fines!

Mind you, much worse than the Naga (in terms of general evilness) was that little toe-rag of a gnome. What was his excuse? Torturing and maiming those lovely sylvan creatures and keeping their skins for what? A new coat? Sick man - deserved to die horribly - pinned to the wall through the heart by 4 of Mendez's arrows :)

Everyone fought well and bravely, with not a small amount of risk though. Early on it seemed that Bodush might die. Two-thirds of his hit-points gone in one blow and Thesis, possessed, poised behind him about to strike. Fortunately Thesis fought the domination and in the next moment the Naga was utterly destroyed by burst of awesome magic from Bodush.

In the funniest incident of the climactic battle, Thesis (Str 25) found himself out grappled by a gianormous Behir, flicked up into the air and swallowed whole! No sooner had that happend that Thesis clawed his way out of the belly of the beast to find the creature disintegrating around him, thanks once again to the magic of the sorcerer!

Fun and larks - Good job Scott :-D

Now that's a big Behir!
Love the work :-)

Nice banner! Thesis falling to the maw of the Behir was my second favorite moment of the game, the favorite being reduced by 40 hit points in one go...

Behir looks oddly light.
I'll revisit it when I get a chance.
I liked Mendez brutal point blank shooting of the Naga.
Why does Bodush get all the credit?

Insanodag said...

Because he actually took risks to ensure victory and didn't hide in the pews...?

TieDye said...

=) To be honest, I was wondering why Bodush left himself open to attack. I thought the guy was our mirror-imaged/invisible air support!

Hedzor said...

Odd wasn't it?
It's like he wants something to be able to defeat him.
He didn't even run when badly injured.
I swear I even heard him laugh!

Also, not hiding, cleverly using cover!

He didn't run because there are still a few characters left that trust the clerics ;-) I'm just following a NHS strategy: I won't let you die....nobody said something about feeling perfect all the time ;-)

Oh why do we no longer have the bard to sing our praises? My words are so inadequate and full of omissions without the claim of poetic license to cover over the gaps.

Sorry Mendez, if it were not for your arrows I doubt whether we would have made such light work of all the creatures in the place. It is a massive advantage to have such a devastating long range weapon at our disposal.
