|Our party of adventurers encounter two Gargoyle sentinels which immediately sweep in to harass us with nasty claw and talon fly-by attacks.|
|...then two Bulette burst from the ground and rampage through the melee, generally bringing chaos to the battle. These beasts are tough as nails and very very angry.|
|Our battle plan follow its usual path, with the Mage trying out some new moves on the enemy.|
|The Gargoyles take a long time to dispatch because they don't stay still long enough to be killed. It was universally agreed that this was most unsporting of them.|
|Inspired by the Mage the Barbarian also try's the combat stance universally known as "the Orthadontist"|
We did eventually defeat the Gargoyles and Bulette but it took most of the evening to do so. So in game terms our party progressed about 10 yards further along on their quest. If we were disposing of the One Ring the story would have taken a dozen books, not three, to reach a conclusion!
