Saturday 2nd September: monolith Conan and Temple of Elemental Evil.   Leave a comment

 

 

An Evening of Dark Fortresses and Perilous Dungeons:

Mike, Phil, Alex, Darryl and Bruce.

 

First up was Conan.  The Cursed Shape Shifting Sorcerer Scenario for 5.  Phil as Overlord.  This was a tricky one for the Heroes but the time pressure is on the Overlord which is a nice twist.  7 turns to break the Curse by sacrificing 3 pirates on 3 altars.

Next up:  The Temple of Elemental Evil.  Everyone plays.  An odd scenario as it turned out.  Everyone took lots of hits at the beginning exhausting the Cleric’s Healing and themselves.   In the middle, no Monsters at all but Bruce got his Ranger killed by failing to disarm a Trap.  Then as the roof was about to fall in and knock out Phil and Mike plus Alex, Alex was able to deliver the killing blow on the Ettin for the heroes to win a partial Victory (one surge used).  Also odd was that we only drew gold coins as the treasure cards ended up clustered at the bottom of the treasure deck just out of reach.   Onwards as we get closer to the final showdown before the next expansion arrives hopefully!
