Rescue the Baggage

This is the second of the scenarios in the starter set scenario book. The dwarves have Bifur, Bofur and Bombur and the Goblins have 12 goblins and Grinnah. The dwarves have to get to the weapon pile and then get back to their starting position. The goblin has to try and kill two of the dwarves.

The starting positions. The dwarves have two options herein this game. They can jump the gap or go the long way round.

Ben decided to send Bofur toward the gap and Bifur accompanied Bombur on the long march over the platforms. I attempted to jump two goblins over the gap but ended up rolling two 1’s and they both fluffed the jump and fell to their deaths.

Bofur jumped the gap but only just. He rolled a one as well and had to modify it with might to avoid the drop.

Bifur joined Bofur by leaping over the gap and the two dwarves start chopping through goblins like no one’s business. They leave Bombur to hold off the goblins coming round the platforms which he managed to do all game.

The dwarves soon broke the goblins and Grinnah promptly failed his stand fast and legged it. I had been rolling very badly for my goblin reinforcements all game and the goblins very quickly melted away once they were broken allowing  the dwarves to pick up the weapons and run to safety. I had managed to knock a wound off Bifur and Bombur but could not quite finish them off.
