Sintamo;
Right, if we go through Orc pass then we'll have fight orcs.

Gunnar;
No problem, know those mountains well, Orcs are a cultural enemy. We dwarves know how to fight orcs.

Sintamo;
lots of Orcs.

Gunnar;
And?

Bravely Bold Sir Robin
I'm with stun (Gunnar glares)... Um Gunnar on this.

Eldarondo
No, you two, just no.

Sintamo
The other route is a bit of a climb, which is why its called Orrud; Cloud Pass.

Gunnar
Cloud Giant Pass.

Eduardo
What?

Gunnar
Orrud Gronti, not Orrud. Cloud Giant pass.

Sintamo
Oh don't be stupid.

Gunnar
I think I can speak the language of my forefathers.

Brother Christos
Cloud Giants are a myth.

Gunnar
Said the religious nutter. Its not the Orrud part, its the Gronti.

Sintamo
I'm a ranger, I think I know which way to navigate.

Gunnar (muttering)
I'm a bleeding Khazad, but no, Mr Stumble knows best.

Great report. I've just purchased a copy of this ruleset ( as well as four against darkness from the same site ) based partly on the fun you're having and partly on browsing through Pendrakens dungeon range. Could be an interesting side project.

Thank you gentlemen.

mmcv: If I had come to this start from scratch, instead of having shed loads of 25/28mm fantasy figures I probably would have gone for Pendraken's dungeon and Warband ranges. It is a great fun set of rules, I've played some great solo games as well.

Yeah there's some nice options in there that can give a bit if a break to batch painting armies. Terrain and features will be a lot easier too.

The truth revealed!

SCENE: NORDIC FOOTHILLS ON THE WAY OUT OF CLOUD GIANT PASS. DAYTIME. THE PARTY CAN BE SEEN IN THE DISTANCE.

As the party approach they can be heard to be bickering, as usual.

Gunnar
I told you it was Cloud Giant pass, but oh no, Mr Stumble thinks he know more about mountains than the First People.

Eldarondo
Ahem. Elves are the first people, hence Elder Race.

Gunnar
muttering
I said people not triffids.

Eldarondo glares at him.

Sintamo
I'm a ranger, I know the lores.

Gunnar
You trod on a scorpion IN A BLEEDING MOUNTAIN PASS. Good job it was after we got through the tricky bit.

Sintamo
Not my fault there are stone scorpions. Eddie stepped on one too!

Gunnar
But his didn't matter, he's wearing platforms.

Eduardo.
I am NOT wearing platforms.

Gunnar
Prove it. Why else would you have grown

Eduardo sits on a rock and hitches up the hem of his robe to show his left boot. The sole is a little thicker, but not unusually so.

Eduardo
See, told you.

Gunnar
What about the other one?

Eduardo
Bugger off Khazguz.

Gunnar
Grab him Christos

Christos wrestles Eduardo to the ground. Gunnar pulls up the robe.

Gunnar
I'll teach you to call me a pebble eater you son of a ...

Gunnar double takes.

Gunnar
What the hell is that?!

He has revealed a clumsy boot with a built up sole some centimeters thick.

Eduardo
Its orthopedic, its orthopedic!

Gunnar gets off him and Christos helps him up. Eduardo is upset his disability has been discovered.

Eduardo
It happens sometimes. The manna causes a growth spurt. None of my undershirts fit anymore, my arms are too long. But the limbs don't grow equally, so I've got to wear this while I wait for it to catch up.

Robin
Well it could be worse. I knew a man this happened to but he had it worse. It was the top of his leg that didn't grow, so his foot stayed on the ground, but he needed an artificial thigh.

Robin, oblivious of how mad this is,turns and carries on down the path. The others stare slack jawed at the stupidity.

Gunnar
He needed...

Eduardo
An artificial thigh....

Gunnar.
Ye may be in platforms but at least ye aint daft. Mad, yes,but not daft.
