So our shady employer had witheld information from us, who would’ve thought, and we ended up killing babies in their cradles. Shit happens. We got paid (well paid, but the guilt!) and now, of course, she wants to hire us again, this time to raid a diamond mine and kill its vermling workers.
-Go to hell! I said.
-No! We want this, said the Mindthief.
-I want to kill vermlings.
-But… Aren’t you a vermling?
-Uh, nevermind, I guess we’ll go kill vermlings…
(set difficulty: hard)
The entry is guarded by 5 hounds, we’re kind of talking about how to tackle them but the damn dogs don’t care to wait for us… They are FAST!
But still, we kill them and the Minthief opens the door to the mine proper.
And… is promptly overwhelmed. The vermlings are mobile and numerous and their Overseer is intimidating (his own attack his moduled by the number of minions he has, a whopping 10 for now).
That’s when me and the Cragheart came up with a PLAN!
-What are you doing?
-I’m putting spikes on myself.
-Oh… Do you want more spikes?
And that’s how a rocky, spiky Cragheart IMPALED a whole horde of vermlings (almost) all by himself.
With his workers dead, the Overseer did not look so fearsome. At all.
We clowned around a little then snuff the life out of his pathetic existence.
- The hounds beat my best initiative card.
- Even the elite vermlings were squishy with 5 hp, so our retaliate tactic proved absolutely lethal
- Sadly, that kind of undercut the Life Goal of the Mindthief but he wasn’t very much in combat shape by then.
