The idea here is simple. Stalk up to the killbows, or don’t, Kill the warriors manning them and their helpers then battle the shaman as it lands. How the party do this is completely up to them.

Encounter – The Orruks

For this encounter we will have two Beast-Skewer Killbow wielding Boltboys, two each (four total) hobgrot helpers per bow and as a second encounter a few moments after the 1st, one Corpse-rippa Vulcha and one Swampcalla Shaman.

Thanks for joining me tonight to look at the Vulcha’s prey. This weekend I will try and produce another Zine of either combine two episodes of Soulbound campaign or the one that I missed a few weeks back. I have some re-work to do on the one I have on the back burner to get it to the quality I want to publish so I may need to put a bit of effort into that one. Make sure you set aside some time for your Tabletop adventures this week and come back soon,
