Round 7 PW wins initiative
  • PW turns his head to bite at whoever has been trying to cut his tail off, he rolls 6 and misses.  I don't allow a bite and sting on the same opponent as it might end up stinging itself in the mouth area

Round 11 PW wins initiative
  • PW bites and hits with a 12 doing 9 damage
  • Taylor hits with 9 and does 3 damage
End of round 11 PW has 9HP, Taylor has 3HP

Round 12 Taylor wins initiative
  • Taylor hits with another 20 and does 3 damage
  • PW counters with a bite and hits with 15 doing 12 damage and ending the brave warrior's life
Victory for the PW then as it still has 6HP.  The great worm munches down its armour plated lunch and then curls up at the back of its cave to recover its strength.

I did two more fast battles and the worm was the winner of both ot those too.  In one it was a similar outcome to this one but it was a couple of rounds shorter.  In the other the worm poisoned poor Taylor in round 2 and by round 5 Hedun was also slain.  The moral of the story is that whatever level you are a purple worm is very bad news.

  1. I really enjoyed this one. An excellent write-up and some very valid conclusions. Will this be a regular series now? I'll try and steer some traffic hither with a pointer post on my blog if that's the case.

    1. Thank you. That is praise indeed from the master of the art. I'm not sure I'll do more of the same, but I got an idea last night, in which I pit an averge 1st level party against a series of encounters, and compare the average outcome against the random dice generated one. I'll give it some more thought during the week.
