Monday Night BBF
First rule of fight club .. hit the opponent!
Jarod decides to sneak up the corridor to see what all the noise is about, he see a group of 8 orcs in the far corner of the room in a circle around what sounds like 2 miners fighting. On seeing this Jarod decides to retreat into the corridor and set up a trip wire using spare bow strings across the corridor and lure the orcs into the trap, unfortunately whilst rigging the trap he makes a bad contact with the piton and a metal sound rings out alerting one of the orcs.

The orc begins to move towards the corridor and Jarod slowly retreats and pushes himself up against the wall, Jarod hears the orc sniffing around and then he speaks to one of his comrades before stepping into the corridor. Unfortunately for Jarod he has failed to hide fully and the orc spots him and moves in to attack, however Jarod is quicker to react and strikes at the orc but he finds his feet quickly and manages to dodge out of the way .. however a second strike from Jarod catches him off guard striking the orc in the arm.

Jarod realizing he is now being pressed by the orc retreats, the orc moves after him but first yells out to him comrades to alert them! Seeing Jarod in trouble Aremil steps out and casts a spell sending a spear over Jarod's shoulder to impale the orc in the head. Sam moves to try and pull Jarod out of the way by lifting him but fails to find the right grip in 2 attempts!

An orc appears at the end of the corridor with a human miner kneeling down in front of him and demands the elf be handed over or the human miners will be killed. Jon peers around the corner and fires an arrow from his bow at the orc taking him by surprise and hitting him in the shoulder, Jon takes a second shot to try and finish him however the shot goes wide and the orc retreats out of view. As he does so 6 more orcs come rushing around the corner and charge toward the adventurers!

Jarod readies his bow and fires at the orcs now charging down the corridor towards him, he manages to fire off 3 arrows before they close in but fails to hit the target! The first orc closes on Jarod and strikes him with his sword, following through he also manages to knock Jarod backwards to allow more room for his comrades to manouver in the cramped tunnels. A second orc faces off against Jarod and he is hit again with a blow glancing his chest.

2 orcs move to the right of Jarod and attack Sam, the first orcs strike is true but some last minute footwork from Sam allows him to dodge the blow .. a second orc tries to press advantage and again strikes true but big Sam is much quicker than he looks and dodges the second strike also! The remaining 2 orcs press on Jon, the first scoring a strike but Jon anticipates the blow and dodges out of the way, the second orc fails to hit swinging at the air instead

Aremil casts another spell this time a volley of arrows striking down one of the orcs attacking Jarod, the arrow pepper his body and the orc slumps to the floor dead, bouyed with his succes Aremil casts again this time at one of the orcs attacking Sam but unfortunately this time the spell fails to cast

Jon now begins to fight back against the 2 orcs attacking him, unluckily his first swing fails to find its mark but a second follow-up strike hits an orc cutting him from chest to belt and killing him instantly.

After dodging the incoming blows of the orcs Sam finds time to heave the maul from his back and swings at one of the orcs attacking him but unfortunately he fails to make a strike. Jarod drops his bow and immediately begins to trade blows with the orcs facing him, his first swing wounds one of the orcs in the chest but he fights on, a second swing fails to find purchase.

Sam now armed with his mighty maul takes a swing at one of the orcs hitting him squarely in the chest and crushing his rib cage killing him instantly, he slumps to the ground. Sam brings the maul around for a strike against the second orc but the orc is too quick and moves out of the way .. a third swing from Sam fails to hit.

Aremil continues to fire magical arrows at the orc fighting Sam taking special care not to hit Sam but in doing so also fails to hit the roc, Aremil then turns his attention to cast a spell at the orc fight Jon but unfortunately the arrows fly wide of the target again.

The orc facing Jarod strike true but Jarod quick on his feet as always manages to move out of the way. The orc attacking Sam fails to find a strike, even though the orc attacking Jon strikes well and last minute parry from Jon means he remains unscathed.

Jon frantically attacks the orc in front of him try to down him before he gets chance to strike again, the first swings are poorly aimed and miss the orc .. more frustrated Jon presses harder but in doing so puts himself off balance with the third strike and trips striking his head on the wooden strut holding up the roof, he is left feeling dazed

Jarod has more success however and strikes down the remaining orc facing him, seeing Jon distress he turns to assist striking twice at the orc attacking Jon but fails to land a blow. Aremil joins in the battle and casts a spell to fire a spear into the shoulder of the orc attacking join, he is wound but still able to fight on, a second spell from Aremil misses as the spear harmlessly hits the wall

Sam is equally eager to down the orc in front of him and goes full out in attacking pressing hard and swinging 4 times at the orc but none of the swings hit the elusive orc leaving Sam frustrated and defenseless against the orcs attacks.

Jon still dazed from hitting his head suddenly finds a moment of clarity and with one swift swing of the sword beheads the orc fighting him, so swift is his move it carries him forward allowing him to strike at the orc fighting Sam. The first blow hits the orc but fails to end him, a follow up strike takes him down.

It seems the fight is over, Jon looks around to see if there are remaining foes and see the orc injured earlier standing at the end of the corridor with a crossbow, the orc fires .. but misses. Jarod quickly picks up his bow and fires off 3 arrows but none of them hit the orc, Jarod quickly finds cover wondering how he could miss.

Sam charges towards the orc hoping to get to him before he has time to reload, unfortunately in his haste he fails to find secure footing and trips falling to the ground in front of the orc, the orc sees an opportunity and moves in to attack, just in time Sam manages to raise his maul to deflect the incoming blow. The orc backs off using Sam as line of sight cover forcing the adventurers to move in.

Jon is the first to move in to attack, he picks up his swoard and rushes forward and swings at the orc but fails to hit, Jarod also moves into the room but can't get a clear shot with his bow so moves back waiting for his chance. It is not required however as Sam finds his footing and strides forward hitting the orc solidly in the chest and sending his body flying like a rag doll to the back of the room.

The fight is over, many orcs lie dead but also 2 miners lie dead in the corner of the room there throats slit as the orcs fulfilled there promise!
