|From here it just got bad. Really, really bad....|
No monsters showed up today.....they were probably in the dark corners laughing themselves to death at our petty excuse for spellcasting. I managed to cast 5 spells, Erik 2 or 3. On the other hand my Captain managed to kill his Captain after I had softened him up with an arrow to the knee. At one point my wizard...standing on the ruined tower in plain view of everyone....dumbass....took a arrow to a more vital part of his anatomy and ended up with 1 life left. My apprentice then cast Leap on him and flung him through the blue portal (didn't do anything, was just there to look nice), saving him, only to have my wizard cast a spell in the next turn, failing, and killing himself in the process. <sigh> My Warhound did pretty well, tying up his Wizard in combat, and then managing to cast Bones of the Earth on his Wizard, literally pinning him in place.....only to see the same thing get cast on my Warhound by his Apprentice..... Ah, the smriking faces full of frustration.
It was nice to feel worry free for an evening.
We agreed that this really was our final test game and that the campaign should start in October. Just the 2 of us. First we will play the 3 mutual games to get some level ups, and after that there will be more games untill we tire of it? Or a wizard dies? Who knows.
My current band consists of 1 Wizard, 1 Apprentice, 1 Captain, 2 Archers, 3 Thieves and a Warhound. Sofar, only the Warhound is painted :D (well, I'm using the GW old plastic wolf for it). This gives me a month to paint the remaining members of the warband. Well, really just the Wizard, Captain and a Archer for the first mutual scenario, but better to paint the lot. Nothing that should worry me or cause me to hasten and stress out.
Also, my Sarissa stuff arrived today. I have some minor criticism about that, but more on that at a later date.
