Clash of the Giaks

The response was overwhelmingly in favor of fighting the Giaks that were attacking the cartload of hellspawn children. Luckily the Kai warriors issue pea-soup-vomit resistant robes, so we’re good to go.

The ghoulish creatures thrust their spears at you and attack. Fight these creatures as a single enemy.
Giaks: COMBAT SKILL 15 ENDURANCE 13

Using our spear and the awesome power of our Mind Blast, our COMBAT SKILL is 23 and our incredible ENDURANCE is currently at 21. For some reason fighting makes us type in all caps, perhaps that’s a secret part of the Kai Discipline of Shouting, I don’t know.

Regardless, using the Dungeons & Dragon Dice Roller, combined with the Lone Wolf Combat Results Table at a ratio of +8 (we may be weak stomached but we can FIGHT!), here are our rolls:

Roll 1 = 2: Enemy -5 (8), Lone Wolf -3 (ouch, 18).
Roll 1 = 6: Enemy -12 (dead), Lone Wolf -1 (17).

And so, with two swipes of our deadly spear we dispatch the foul beasts, spilling a not inconsiderable amount of our own blood. We rule!

Apparently the little bastards we were defending ran off while we were getting shish-kabobed. What do you expect, they’re refugees, fleeing is what they do. Still, a little gratitude or a simple “Thanks!” would have been nice. Jerks. Instead we have the following two choices:

I don’t even remember there being a farmhouse, but sure, whatever. I hope it’s made of gingerbread, then we can use our Kai Discipline of Mind Blast to chuck the mean old witch in an oven and finally get a meal. Then again, forests are nice, and rarely get burned down on general principle by marauding Giaks.

  1. Return to the woods, I think it’s less likely to encounter fugly kinds in there.

  2. So, IF we win there’s a farmhouse, otherwise we can return our disembodied spirit to the woods? HEHEHE, I know that’s not what they meant, but it sure sounds like it. I’m partial to the farmhouse myself. Maybe there’s something useful in there.

    The Farmhouse was mentioned when we had the option of running to that, or defending the little hellspawn…
    I’m for heading to the farmhouse, because they’ve mentioned it twice, emphasizing how SAFE it is!
    Probably a cartload of ugly monsters in there, and oodles of loot! :D

  4. Yeah, let’s go to the farmhouse. Maybe we can find ye old fyrst aide kitte in there somewhere.

  5. The woods haven’t been bad, but looting is usually easier in buildings.

    Farmhouse vote here as well. Maybe the farmer will let us rest in the hayloft and maybe he has a daughter and maybe everyone’s heard this joke before…
