Revenge is a Dish best Served Cold

You, the now puissant Rocknaratt, leap into action, flying like a mighty arrow whizzing from a bow at the lid of the chest, brushing the sluggish Donjonetta to one side. 'Ooh! You've smeared me make up!' she protests.

You are not in the Usain Bolt of lid shutters league and, although your cry of 'Happy House' does give Siouxsie pause for thought, the banshee lets out a snot-wrenching cry of 'Helter Skelter!' as she snakes through the half shut lid and emerges in the only place you can call home.

She glides towards the startled Donjonetta, evades the dwarf's attempt to punch her lights out, and whispers a sweet nothing in her ear. Donjonetta collapses in an unsanitary heap amidst the slain rats.

Then Siouxsie turns to you and whispers in your ear (your attempts to push her back convince you that she is indeed spirit and presumably had no reason to come through the ice before - even banshees can catch colds - and your twists and turns do not allow you to escape the attentions of this spiritual chanteuse)...

Make a L1 SR on both WIZ and CHR. If you fail the WIZ SR you must attempt a L1 SR on CON.

The words you hear as she whispers in your ear are ' me, help me...'

  1. OK...we need a CHA score, and maybe I will roll out the rest too :)

    STR = 5-5-3, 13
    INT = 4-4-2, 10
    LK = 1-3-4, 8
    CHA = 3-4-5, 12

    STR: 13
    DEX: 16
    SPD: 11
    CON: 13
    INT: 10
    WIZ: 11
    LK: 8
    CHA: 12

    Here we go...

    L1 SR WIZ, 1-3 = 4 + 11 = 15 (failed)
    L1 SR CHA, 2-3 = 5 + 12 = 17 (failed)
    L1 SR CON, 3-6 = 9 + 13 = 22 (woohoo - success!)
