Transporters - Dragon Rampant AAR



Here is the second chapter from the Chronicle of the 4 heroic adventurers seeking fame and fortune in the north.

After they so heroicly saved the village Utkante from a hoard of Black Bloods they stayed at the village inn for some days so Lord Bazak could recover from the injuries he got durign the quarrel with the Black Bloods.

During their stay at the Inn the Inn keeper told them that he had a big problem...

Several of his transport with food and BEER from the Town of Kandra had been attacked by brigands during the journy to Utkante, soon he would run out of his finest BEER and just have his own produced Mead. After hering such a heart tearing story the 4 Adventurers voulentered to go to Kandra and escort the next vital (read BEER) shipment to Utkante.

OOB Adventurers (Glory: 15)

Lord Bazak - Dwarf Warrior (Fielded as Elite Foot) @ 6 points (Trait: Leader)

Klom - Ogre Brute (Fielded as Elite Foot) @ 6 points (Trait: Tought)

Genevieve - Human Mercenary (Fielded as Expert Light Missile) @ 6 points

Mizar - Human Mage (Fielded as Expert Heavy Missile) @ 6 points

As I wanted them all to have 6 hit I raised the Armour with +1 for the "units" that normaly are made up of 12 minis.

The Heroes had picked up the three wagons at the City of Kandra and was escorting them and their drivers to the Vilage Utkante. 

Soon enought they approached the Troll bridge, but all was calm...

...only a poor beger that asked them for some thing for a poor man that needed to feed his family (one of their glory points)... Klom just looked at him with a grine and answered NOOOO!!! in his most polite way...

...in a blink of a secong the beger was vanished... the water in the stream started to raise... In the water Klom and the rest of the heroes could see a beautiful women...Ran... Klom was paralysed by here looks and he started to climb down in Ran´s bed...

Klom was paralysed by here looks and he started to climb down in Ran´s bed... Mizar knew what was on its way so he gathered all his power when he was throwing a wall of fire at the water creature Ran...

...Ran disappeared as quick as she appeard...the wather was calm again and there was no sight of the beger... Lord Bazak ordered them to move on before the evil water creature would come back...

The heroes continued their journy, Klom was in a bad mood and limped a bit due to the damage he had got in the fight with Ran.

...CRASH... they had just passed the Troll bridge when Klom managed to evade from several trees falling across the road blocking their way of travel...

...AMBUSH!!!..Klom shouted...

From under the bridge emereged no trolls but a big group of Brigands, attacking Genevieve that was protecting the rear of the caravan...

At the same time a similar group of brigands emerged from the forest by the fallen trees, beginning to shoot arrows, throw spears and throw stones at Klom...

...Genevieve didn´t even got the chance to use her crossbow...

...our four heroes was indeed outmanned by the Brigands..but they was in noway over powered...

...with some swift use of her short sword Genevieve managed to drive the Brigands back a bit as she screamed for help from Lord Bazak that just stood there looking at the mayhame...

...by the fallen trees Mizar once again let his wall of fire do the dirty work...

...Lord Bazak at last got his things together and charged in to the remaining Brigands by the troll bridge, driving them in to the water...

...after a intence fight leaveing 8 of the Brigands laying in the sream, dead, Lord Bazak let the remaining Brigand take a run for it...

...to Klom´s disapointment Mizar´s wall of fire had driven the Brigands on the run, the heroes just heard their terrified screams disapere further away in the forest...

That wasn´t to hard, Lord Bazak said...

Klom swiftly got the road cleared from the trees and our Heroes was once again on the move and by the evening they would be back at the village Utkante with the BEER.


our second game was a quick affair, still a blast for both me and David, The Adventurers was awarded 5 more Glory for their deeds, now totaly 20 Glory and soon they will level up.
