Friday night is and the bellows of rage and excitement echo through the halls from the Grut’s Warriors as they prepare for battle. Excited for another raid on the avian-folk, the Aarakocra they are not prepared for the ambush that comes their way, or maybe they are. So sit back, grab a coffee and enjoy tonight’s addition to the adventure of this week!
Now the backbone of Grut’s Warriors are the bugbear. Hulking medium sized humanoids they are ferocious and don’t underhanded tactics despite their strength. A volley of javelins will whistle through the air before the sickening thud of them plunging into allies marks the charge of the bugbear. Despite being larger cousins of the Goblin and Orc this particular breed of Bugbear share some resemblance of giants.
Grut – The Giant King
No matter what Grut’s warriors say he is paranoid. Being mislead and tricked by his own kind he has vowed to let no-one trick him again. this has lead his mind to become fractured with an ultra paranoid inner voice driving his decisions and siding against good, solid Giant logic. Perhaps this was the Hags doing, perhaps not.
A big meaty foot and a large club greet any who encounter Grut. Ferocious and fearless in battle he isn’t afraid the lead the charge and his bolstered armour and constitution provided by the mutated hide he carries is a badge of honour more than a curse to him now.
The encounter will be tough. 1-2 orcs per player OR 1 bugbear for the initial raiding of the camp. A mix of Orc and bugbear is probably ideal. When there is only one or two remaining they will call for aid from their king who will stomp forward. Balanced at a level 4 party this adventure is increasing the tempo once more – so I am calling some of the bigger shots with ferocious minions wearing the party down, and their resources, and even worse, the leader Grut himself.
Thanks for joining me tonight as we get a glimpse of Grut and Grut’s warriors. As we progress through the year its hard to process we are seven weeks into the year already. Time flies when you’re rolling dice it seems.
Tomorrow I hope to provide something more akin to a discussion topic based on the most common question I encounter in the DMs forum I am attending. So don’t forget to come back for that and as always, don’t forget to roll with advantage,
The Brazen Wolfe
