· Talmark swings at the southern most goblin and the big blade of Felldrac his family sword cuts deep into the monsters left shoulder and into the chest cavity. He deals 14pts of damage and the goblin is instantly killed.
· The warrior Cleaves into the northern most goblin and he hits again. This time he cuts into the left leg of the goblin, decapitating it and dealing 15pts of damage. The goblin collapses to the ground and dies.
Talmark lifts his great sword over his head in victory.
They collect the small short swords and short bows as loot and checking the bodies they find 3gp in total coins between them.
“Well that’s a start” Lucien observes. “Do you need healing Talmark?”
The big warrior shakes his head. “Nah I’m alright. I’ll just rub a bit of dirt on it. Keep the spells for later.”
They form back up and turn towards the cave mouth. As they enter the cave there is an opening into a cavern to the east. There are a few uneven stone steeps which lead up to a small, dank chamber. The cave narrows to a steep fissure at the far end, and is filled with the stench of animals. Savage snarls and the sounds of rattling chains greet the parties ear where two goblin dogs are chained up just inside the opening. Each dog’s chain leads to an iron rod driven into the base of a stalagmite.
“Shoosh, shoosh, good boy, good boy” Talmark reassures the dogs. The dogs sit on their hind haunches and start to wag their tails. Eventually they lay down bored. Talmark can now see that there are three dogs, not two.
The party backs up and confers.
“Should we just sneak past them or run in there and kill them?” asks Talmark. “I’m not sure about leaving them behind us.”
