The Glacial Gate; worst possible scenario

Postby wallydubbs » Friday December 7th, 2018 4:13pm

In Room A, there is the crypt, two Yetis and a Polar Warbear. The booklet doesn't cover what is, in my opinion, the worst possible scenario; if the hero goes in and is grabbed by the Yeti in a bearhug, can the adjacent Polar Warbear then attack the hero, who would be in no position to defend...?

Upon asking this I now wonder if two Yetis can hug the same hero at the same time... this brings to mind a vision of the two Yetis grabbing the top and bottom half of the hero and pulling... which turns bloody and gruesome... to avoid such unpleasantries I'm gonna go ahead and say no...

Sounds like you will need some house rule to me, but I like the idea of a hero sandwitch. Dont most tragic stories of fallen hero's start this way in one form or another.

But to answer your question, I would probably be inclined to let the hero defend with reduced defence dice. Just because the hero is being bearhugged dosn't mean they can't use their legs to some extent. Also if the monster is holding the hero the same can be said for them, you can't really defend off an attack from another hero if your hands are full.

I would have two Yeti's do it just to see what happens. Again with even more reduced defence dice, so the hero has the illusion of light at the end of the tunnel.

When the first Yeti hugs the hero I guess the other yeti will become jealous, so it will try to take away the hero from the arms of its friend maybe pulling the hero from a leg.
The other yeti will then try to contrast and will pull the hero from the other leg, until.... the hero will split and both of the yetis can have its half hero to play with!

This is what I meant about the bloody and gruesome unpleasantries...

That may have sounded good on paper, but it didn't really look like it hurt any more then what the Giant was doing.

Why would they dress someone up like a Mummy, yet call him a Yeti? Even Giant Gonzales' WWF ring attire would've been slightly more accurate. Unless they wanted to play him off as an actual Yeti that had reconstructive surgery to make him look human when the bandages come off... this is WCW we're talking about, where Robo Cop actually saved Sting and Rick Steiner got into an argument with Chucky...
