Narrator: The delvers have assaulted a fortified manor house full of orcs and driven off or killed the main guards.

Lyralen: Which sounds more impressive than it really felt.

Ystävä: They're only orcs.

Narrator: Now they are approaching the house itself. They look south at the house's north wall, a single servant's door their only access. To the east, the second story looms over them. A vague murmur of orcish voices can be heard through the thick stone walls.

GM: So. What are you guys up to? There's a door in front of you - I think you can even see it on the map!

Beltarne: Rollin de' Tactics!

Osgar: Tactics result: ?succeeded by 3

Osgar: uses LUCK at 2011-05-17 17:19:39 CST.

Osgar: Tactics result: ?failed by 2

Lyralen: I think having Ystava kick it in is the appropriate way to proceed.

Beltarne: I agree

Osgar: Tactics result: ?succeeded by 1

Ystävä: I approve.

Osgar: on with the kicking!

GM: Okay, let me look up those rules in Missions - I mean Exploits - I mean Dungeons!

Ystävä: ST check modified for Forced Entry possibly. Not 100% sure

GM: Lifting ST, +2 for a crowbar, + Forced Entry Bonus vs DR+HP of hinges or bar/wedge

Ystävä: Strength check result: ?succeeded by 8»

Reinforced Servant's Door: Resist! result: ?succeeded by 21 »

Ystävä: Clong

Beltarne: What's the frame made of?

Narrator: With a loud grunt, Ystava completely fails to open the door. Some joker has apparently barred it from the inside.

Lyralen: calls out to the people inside. "Look, we're going to get in there eventually anyway. Really. You're postponing the inevitable. If we have to batter the door down, we'll be coming in GRUMPY."

GM: Door is reinforced wood; frame is the same.

Ystävä: readies an axe.

Narrator: The orcish voices possibly increase in pitch.

Ystävä: I'm going to axe it. With vigor!

Beltarne: I help!

Beltarne: whistles while he works.

GM: So you're just going to smash it a bunch with flails and axes and implements of destruction? Okay, the door has DR15, HP39; the hinges aren't immediately accessible.

Ystävä: I get +1 per die because of Forced Entry!

Beltarne: A wooden door has DR 15?

GM: The frame is weaker; DR10, HP34.

Ystävä: Axe does 15 (cut)

Ystävä: A thick wooden slab does. It's ablative or semi ablative

Lyralen: stays back and lets the professionals do their thing. Also that DR is probably at least semi-ablative.

GM: Door is "reinforced" wood. And it's pretty heavy construction - these guys didn't want random hoodlums breaking into their house.

GM: Yeah, it's semi-ablative, -1 DR/5 points of damage.

Beltarne: Ah

GM: Are you guys all-out attacking for extra damage? It's an option.

Beltarne: Sure!

GM: BTW, door is now at 12/39.

Beltarne: Axe does 9 (cut)

Beltarne: +2

Ystävä: Oh derp.

GM: Roll damage, I assume you can hit a defenseless door. After Beltarne's strike, it's at 10/39.

Ystävä: So that's anotehr +3

Ystävä: Axe does 22 (cut)

Osgar: gets out some paut, prepares to cast defensive magics

GM: Errr, 10/36.

GM: Second round of smashings! Damage?

Ystävä: "Little orcs! Little orcs! Let me in!"

Beltarne: Axe does 7

Ystävä: Oops, rolled early. 22 cut

Lyralen: mutters something about the orcs' chins.

Reinforced Servant's Door: ... 9/34, then 5/15

Narrator: Ystava's massive blow puts a noticeable dent into the door.

Beltarne: Axe does 9 cut!

Beltarne: Para round tres.

Ystävä: Axe does 22 (cut)

Ystävä: And again. WHAM.

Lyralen: sighs theatrically. "Look, I *told* you we'd be getting in there eventually. Seems 'sooner' rather than 'later'. If you would like to surrender, well... Actually, it may be too late. Dreadfully sorry."

Beltarne: whistles brightly in between swings.

Reinforced Servant's Door: Door begins to smash, going below 0 HP result: ?failed by 4 »

Narrator: Ystava's third blow caves in the door, sending flinders flying into the hall. They immediately rebound as the swinging mace trap that some joker put behind the door swings down toward the minotaur's face.

Swinging Mace Trap: Attack Ystava! [s(12,1) for [3d6+3] crushing damage Swinging Mace Trap: Attack Ystava! result: ?succeeded by 5 » for 12 crushing damage

Torvall: "Saw that coming a mile away...."

Ystävä: That was an All Out Attack! I am lightly bruised for 2 damage!

Ystävä: 4

Ystävä: 4 damge

Ystävä: Unless it was to the head

GM: It would have been for Beltarne, but it hits low on Ystava.

Ystävä: Daw.

Narrator: Behind the mace is a narrow servant's corridor, leading deeper into the house. There are two more doors on the west wall, one at each end of the hall.

Osgar: casts blur -5, then drinks his paut

Ystävä: rubs his bruises and sulks a little, then stomps down the corridor looking for Orcs to get his revenge on.

Ystävä: How high is the ceiling?

Ystävä: Am I stomping or stooping?

Osgar: +3 because I don't care if they know I'm casting it

GM: Okay, if you guys want to be sneaky/cautious, you can't move at more than 1-2 hexes per second. If you want to run around wildly and play with whatever traps the orcs have, you can go faster.

Ystävä: Does Ystava ever think of traps?

Bedlam: i vote for slower

Osgar: Blur result: ?CRITICALLY SUCCEEDED by 13 No FP cost!

Lyralen: I am totally in favor of letting Ystava go first as our trap detector.

GM: The ceiling is a generous 9' feet, so Ystava should be okay.

Ystävä: IQ check result: ?failed by 2»

Ystävä: Nope, doesn't think of traps.

Osgar: hmm, don't drink the paut

GM: Running or walking down the hall?

Osgar: "So, who wants to check for more traps?"

Ystävä: OK so I'm having trouble moving.

Ystävä: One sec, trying keyboard

Ystävä: I can't go south by mouse or by keyboard.

GM: Weird.

Ystävä: Too big

Ystävä: I set to 2/3rds size and now it works.

Osgar: (( How did the orcs get force fields?! ))

Ystävä: boldly goes!

Beltarne: cautiously follows.

GM: So Ystava is just running down the corridor, reaching the south door, and shouldering a door aside?

Lyralen: "I don't think I should go first. I remember what happened to the LAST winged member of your party who checked for traps."

Torvall: Sounds like what he'd do

GM: Everyone else is welcome to move. We're not going second by second, I'm just checking if you're in a hurry or trying to be cautious/sneaky.

GM whispers to Ystävä: The entire place stinks of orc, and something worse - even ranker than Ystava himself!

Osgar: looks for murder holes, collapsable ceilings etc

Bedlam: mouser can't fit

Ystävä: waves his axe hand in front of his nose as he goes boldly. "Smell bad"

Beltarne: checks door to the left to see if it's locked.

Beltarne: (while standing to one side)

Osgar: "Look out for more traps!"

GM: The door isn't locked. Osgar isn't seeing any traps right now.

Ystävä: "Smell bad guy."

Beltarne: shoves door open, standing to one side.

Ystävä: turns around to see if Beltarne has found orcs to smash!

Ystävä: (( I'm at 12/20 HP btw ))

Narrator: Behind the door is a small room, lit by a dim fireplace. It may have been some kind of servants study or garrett once but now it is some orc's sleeping quarters.

Beltarne: No exits?

GM: Only the way you came in.

Beltarne: Kay.

Ystävä: Any orcs in it?

Beltarne: "Nothing! Keep moving!"

Ystävä: Unless the door to my left smells more, I boot the door at the end of the hall open!

Ystävä: If the door to my left smells more, I boot THAT open.

GM: Make a tracking roll, Ystava - Discriminatory Smell helps.

Ystävä: Tracking (12): result: ?CRITICALLY SUCCEEDED by 10»

GM: More orcs to the south - only 2-3 orcs ever come this way.

Ystävä: To the south then! BOOM!

Ystävä: kicks the door in grand adventuring style! 9

Ystävä: 9 crushing to the door!

Narrator: With another mighty kick, Ystava kicks the door open. Beyond, a hallway runs east-west, with a pair of doors on the south side. To the east, the hallways looks to open on some kind of large foyer; the west smells like a kitchen or dining hall filled with foul food. The two rooms to the south smell faintly of orc.

Ystävä: I will find the orcs, and I will crush them! To the southern doors!

GM: Smashing those open too?

Ystävä: I like this plan.

Ystävä: It's simple!

Ystävä: And I forgot I get +1/die for door kicking!

Beltarne: checks the door to the left again

Ystävä: 9 door kicking crushing!

Narrator: Another door down, another anonymous cubble-hole. Whatever orc sleeps here isn't here now.

Ystävä: sticks his head in the kitchen looking for kitchen orcs.

Narrator: Torvall can also make out two stairways in the foyer, leading up.

Narrator: Most of the interior is dimly lit by smoldering logs in the fireplaces and dim sunlight leaking through narrow and dirty windows set high in the walls.

Narrator: The dining hall stinks of rotten food and orc.

Ystävä: Was that what I was smelling earlier?

GM: Yes - none of the smells are particularly fresh, but nothing is very stale either. There's a lot of traffic through here.

Ystävä: meh. I'm going to go kick the other door.

Ystävä: It's mroe interesting.

Ystävä: Bam! 7 door kicking crushing!

Narrator: It opens to an old, abandoned pantry that the orcs are using as a refuse pit.

Ystävä: "Bored!

GM whispers to Ystävä: There are orcs behind the southwest door in the foyer, and more upstairs - chanting maybe?

GM whispers to Beltarne: You can hear orcs behind the southwest door in the foyer - obviously trying to be quiet.

Ystävä: "Little orcses! Stop with the juju and come fight!"

Beltarne: "Orcs behind the southwest door in the foyer!"

Narrator: The foyer is a large hall with two stairs leading up to the second level. Ragged tapestries with elaborate woven crests and shields on them hang from the walls.

Ystävä: "I hear you with the talking magic! Come dooooown!"

Ystävä: is shouting up the stairs.

Narrator: No one responds to Ystava's taunts, though there is hushed shouting in orcish in response.

Ystävä: Hushed shouting?

Ystävä: Talking even?

Osgar: "Magic talk, where exactly?"

GM: Y'know, the way a wife shushes a husband in public.

Beltarne: tries to push the door open, again standing out of the way.

Ystävä: "Up!"

GM: People can adjust their tokens before something happens. Don't move them too far.

GM: also, the door opens out, Beltarne.

Ystävä: Can I join the door being opeened to look for orcs?

Ystävä: The orcs upstairs are boring.

GM: Sure!

Beltarne: Can I pull it outwards then?

GM: Sure!

Osgar: is that a balcony by the stairs or a walled area?

GM: The stairs have a battered railing, but they're just straight N-S stairways.

Narrator: Beltarne puts his hammer in his shield hand and pulls open the door. The two orcs behind it toss throwing irons at him and Ystava, shouting madly!
