The DM for the Dungeon of the Mad Mage has been unavailable for a couple of sessions, so some of us have been smashing our way through a simple dungeon crawl.
Hilfander, my Dwarven Legolas, has been right in the action. And he’s been scoring some loot. I picked up the Quiver of Ehlona, which will help him carry his bow (and let him stock right up with arrows).
He also picked up Bracers of Archery. This along with his crossbow and other skills has him at about +9 to hit and damage. That means his chances of hitting every shot have gone up.
Then, the group found a dwarven tomb that had been looted. They resanctified it and closed it back up. This uncovered a secret compartment inside. After a bit of messing about, they pulled something out of it.
And boy, did Hilfander’s eyes light up. A beautiful Dwarven Battleaxe. Intricate runes decorated the head, with a dark hardwood haft.
And then the best bit. Roll percentile… and I rolled a nat 100!
A +3 Vicious Battleaxe. Vicious will give me an extra 2d6 every time I roll a critical. Now Hilfander is as lethal up close as he is from range. I’d love to run him in a more serious campaign now…
Actually I’d like to run him solo in something where he can do some sneaking with his Gloom Stalker talents.
