Game summary for September 26, 2016, Prepared! – The Impregnable Fortress of Dib campaign, for Harm Incorporated. Session included: Dorin Stoutbelly (Halfling Cleric played by Preston Harmon), Lucian Hawkwind (Human Fighter played by Preston Harmon as secondary), Porthos Goldthumb (Gnome Wizard played by Parker Harmon), and Snorri Axebattler (Dwarf Rogue played by Parker Harmon as secondary). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The party, the mighty Goblin Slayers, heard rumor of a group of goblins who had built a fortress out of an overturned wagon.  They headed out and found the ditch and partially dug moat.  They approached and were fired upon with a volley of arrows.  Dorin and Porthos used disguise self to appear goblin-like and engaged the inhabitants in conversation.  They immediately began to praise the legendary status of goblin leader, whose name they learned was Dib Halfling-Chewer.  The team planned to lull the goblins into a false sense of security and started helping dig the moat.  However, they forgot the spell duration of disguise self, and after an hour of labor their cover failed!  The goblins attacked with gusto, shooting arrows and pumping scalding oil on the team.  A well-placed light spell on one of the arrow slits gave the goblins some penalties to attack.  Porthos ignited the wagon with a burning hands spell while Lucian and Snorri took turns putting boots to the door trying to kick it in!  Dib taunted them from within while riddling them with arrows.  Finally, the wood splintered under their assault, and the party flooded in.  Two goblins tried to grapple the team and throw them into a knee bar.  Snorri’s knee with wrenched pretty hard, but overall the team was unimpressed.  Crossbow bolts flew in from the team while the rogue and fighter engaged in melee.  The goblin warlord, Dib, fled down the ladder laughing and yelling, “Fast as fast can be, you’ll never catch me!”

The group killed the goblins and dropped down the ladder to pursue.  They hurtled around a corner and found a fiendishly clever and very goblin-like trap.  The goblins had laid out a lot of rakes and driven nails through the handles.  Snorri threw his arm up just in time as he accidentally stomped on the rake heads.  The nails slammed into his forearm instead of his face!  Arrows and crossbows flew back and forth across the tiny cavern beneath the burning wagon.  Porthos killed two goblins with magic missile.  Dorin stepped up and cast charm person at Dib who shook off the effect yelling, “Wise as wise can be, you’ll never charm me!”  So, Lucian and Snorri flanked him and killed him with a sneak attack.

The team searched the room and found treasures the goblins had stolen hidden beneath the cushions of the goblin throne.  Happy with their successful mission and healed by Dorin’s magic, the team headed out of the “fortress” to pursue further adventure.
