The Wasteland of Gath: The Pit (Dorinda); White Box

Dorinda (played by +Matt Jackson) and Kerg left the bus early in the morning and continued down the road. After a time, Kerg had to relieve himself and rushed forward to a massive pothole in the road to do so. As he neared the hole, he shrieked in terror and ran back to Dorinda's side.

     Three nightmare creatures shambled out of the hole, covered in black slime. Despite the goo, their pinkish-gray skin could be seen through the muck. They were about 4' tall with long, spindly limbs. Their fingers ended in sharp claws where the bone grew through the skin. They had dropping facial features, long floppy ears and a small mouth full of pointed teeth.

     Dorinda recognized these as "Fleshlings." They are the terrifying spawn of witches, who lay clutches of eggs in damp places during the full moon.

     Round 1: Dorinda and Kerg lost initiative, but the creatures could not close the distance. Dorinda sought cover behind a car door on the road, while Kerg fired his crossbow. Sadly, he missed.

     Round 2: The creatures pressed the attack after they won initiative. Kerg was grazed with a claw, while Dorinda was more deeply slashed on a natural 20. Kerg and Dorinda returned attacks, but could not do any damage.

     Round 3: Initiative was simultaneous! Dorinda managed to inflict 3 point of damage with her spear, but it was not enough to fell the beast. Kerg again missed. The dice had completely forsaken them! The monstrosities attacked and Dorinda was brought down with ANOTHER 20! Kerg was also laid low with a deep wound.

     Dorinda watched helplessly, her body leaking fluid as Kerg was drug into the pit and torn limb from limb. She eventually lost consciousness and action was paused there.
