Memphisto mouths the words to his sleep spell so that he can cast it at will as the others prepare their weapons and Van and Dahl pull open the door…

The dracoharpy’s eyes flash as if she was expecting you: indeed it was wise of her to stay and guard her dearest treasure. She sits beside the wardrobe, in the middle of the room, and spreads her wings, seemingly preparing to move in for the attack...

Please declare your actions for the next combat round...

Mechanics
  • Dahl: open door... 1d6 - 1 = 4 => FAIL
  • Van: open door... 1d6 - 1 = 2 => SUCCESS

“Hear goes nothing,” grunts Dahl as he hurls his spear at the beast, pushing into the room to allow the others in behind him (so some can secure the other door, as Memphisto suggested, and so we can perhaps close this south door behind us once all are in the room, leaving us, hopefully, but one of these foes to face).

Van will slam the door shut once everyone is in.

Before the dracoharpy gets the chance to sling her deadly acidic excreta at the party, arcane words flow from Memphisto's mouth as he casts his spell of sleep. The dracoharpy's eyes droop and her wings go limp: within seconds she is fast asleep on the floor.

Meanwhile, Van closes the door after the adventurers have entered the room and Holger grabs some spikes and his mallet from his backpack to jam the other one. It takes him six spikes to firmly secure it. All then stand in the middle of the cavern-like room, staring down at the ungodly, sleeping beast lying among the shreds of rug on the pitted and marked floor as Albin lights a fresh torch. "So... What shall we do with her?" He inquires in a whispering voice. "I wonder if her sister is far off..."

Combat mechanics
Initiative
  • Friends... 1d6 = 5
  • Foes... 1d6 = 1
Magic
  • Friends
    • Memphisto: casting "sleep", affecting…
      • 2d8 = 6 “first level” creatures (up to 1+1 HD)
      • 2d6 = 8 “second level” creatures (up to 2+1 HD)
      • 1d6 = 2 “third level” creatures (up to 3+1 HD)
      • 1 “fourth level”creature (up to 4+1 HD)
      S&W WhiteBox rules are very minimal and perhaps even erroneous on "sleep", so I went with the Original Rules for this one.

Magremore: I postponed Dahl's attack for a bit because I thought you might want to reconsider now that the dracoharpy is asleep.

Van grunts and says "Let's kill it before it wakes and shreds us to bits."
Van will draw his battle axe and wait expectantly.

Memphisto

"As much as I would care to take this creature as a living specimen...it's mate or sister will be returning with malice in its heart."

"Dahl, unless you wish to tame this beast, dispatch it ere it wakes..."

Memphisto will see that both doors are secured and then look towards their nest.

Dahl approaches the beast with his spear and nods toward Van. “Let’s dispatch this monstrosity.”

Van nods and approaches the beast. He takes a deep breath and swings his battle axe at the beast's neck.
