Huh?
Be it the known lack of sense of humor of dwarfes or the known lack of wit of barbarians - I don't get it...
:dwarf: :?: :barbarian:

You could always open the door, you haven't moved on this round yet. ;)

Eddy couldn't reach the door from there. It's really down to the dwarf at the moment.

I did move, didn't I? I could always pass by Kili, (on his square) open the door, then pass Caranthir, and stop behind him, but I find that a bit mean to do ;)
I'll wait for the fodder brave warriors to open the door and take the attack.

It was my intention that we start turn 52 when I had Kili say after you, big guy (everybody had already moved in turn 51). I should have posted EoT. It's usually best to have the first Hero in the turn order (Hurgar) open a door so that everyone may act in that round of turns before Zargon. Being in front of a door doesn't prevent another Hero from opening a door and passing through to the room, as Big Bene has mentioned.

The image was of Curly, one of the Three Stooges. It was played a lot on American TV when I was a kid. In the particular episode from the photo he was in a boxing match and would go beserk when Larry, another of the Stooges, would play "Pop Goes the Weasel" on the violin. I remember him slapping himself silly, saying "Rowf" like a dog, and spinning around in a circle on the floor when he got that way. I figure a Trollslayer is equally bizarre when working up to a beserk fury.

Eddy hasn't moved on turn 51, but I guess he's getting skipped again.

Zargon, turn 51:

The nearby sounds have stopped.

(Heroes are now required to roll for movement again.)

End of Turn. Round 52 commences.

Hurgar, turn 52:
Hurgar bursts through the door on his first move, flooding the corridor with the stench of dried blood as he reveals a room that speaks of a hideous history. Its only inhabitant is a single undead servant, its zombie-like movements weaker than one expects from its sort: Baron Martense's power over the thing is waning, but still very present.

Image

However, as Hurgar steps into the room, the tile beneath his feet sinks with a condemning click, and stones grind in the walls nearby...

Image

THOOM! The heroes are trapped, and the hall fills with horrible moans!

Hurgar still has movement and one action. What will he do?
