Impromptu HackMaster Game

A couple of months ago a fellow member of the sent me a private message saying he'd be in town and wanted to try and get a game going. No problem, I'm always up for a game.

We got together last night (Friday). Nathan, his wife Kristie (probably butchered the spelling), and his brother Tim came over for a one-off. They were going to bring another family member, but he wasn't feeling well.

They had a decent enough of a group....a ranger, a fighter, and a fighter/thief/magic user. They really needed a cleric, but that was what the missing player was going to bring.

They started off in Goblin's Tooth, like most of my games do, and had no problem getting into the game.....I won't post details in case I do some HackMaster editing and re-run the game for my regular players.

Needless to say, they started out strong. The first PC hit was a crit and that was followed up by several others. The trio took out the two worst baddies quite easily. Their only "mistake" was rushing into a larger group of baddies without a game plan. They were down HP, but the magic-user did have a very useful spell still available. When confronting the larger enemy group, they did take down the leader and another baddie, before losing one member. Another member went down and was left behind by the third member who had to flee (couldn't take the downed member with him).

All in all, we had a good time and I got a couple more skulls....
