Here’s another piece I drew for me and the studio’s new Dungeons, Dragons and Drinking blog–
Deep in a dungeon, the group was set upon by a bunch of goblins headed up by a vicious, hairy and (probably smelly, and certainly drooling) bugbear. Dainty little Maxie the hobbit-boy used a spell to put him to sleep from a safe distance, and mighty Killgore strode up to finish him off with his great strength and powerful axe.
He wound up for the killing blow and… missed completely.
Then a goblin snuck up and tried to take a shot at Killgore, and also missed.
Then Maxie set the sleeping beast on fire. He still didn’t wake up. So, Killgore, his pride slightly bruised from the first failed attempt, squared up for another chop. He planted his feet firmly on the ground, maybe took a couple of warm-up swings, took aim at the sleeping, slowly burning beast and…
The goblin also took another attack and also missed completly.
Not the best performance by our hero. Maybe he should rethink how many rejuvenating liquor shots he should take before entering a dungeon.
Killgore, however, would point out that he DID eventually cut the bugbear. When it finally woke up and realized it was on fire, it tried to escape, and Killgore threw his axe at it, lodging it deeply in the monster’s flesh.
But it didn’t quite kill him, and now Killgore doesn’t have an axe…
