Entry 9a

You are now in combat!


9a
You know that the goblin is a nasty, evil creature that you must kill before you can continue. Both you and the goblin take turns attacking one another. Attacks are made by rolling a 20-sided die (or d20 for short) and adding your attack bonus (see below). If the total is equal to or greater than the goblin’s Armor Class (or AC for short), then the attack is a hit and deals damage. Damage is subtracted from the goblin’s hit points (or hp). To beat the goblin, you must reduce its hit points to 0 or fewer. The goblin will make similar attacks rolling against your AC, dealing damage to your hit points. If the goblin reduces your hit points to 0 or fewer, you die. Record your hit points on your scratch paper.

Combat occurs in rounds.

Each round, both you and the goblin get to make one attack.

1) MAKE AN ATTACK AGAINST THE GOBLIN:
  • Roll a d20 and add your attack bonus (+5) to the result. 
    • If the total is equal to or greater than the goblin’s AC (13), you hit and deal 1d8+2 points of damage to the goblin
      PencilWrite its new hit point total on your scratch paper.
2) NEXT, THE GOBLIN ATTACKS YOU:
  • Then the goblin attacks you. Roll a d20 for the goblin and add its attack bonus (+1) to the result.
    •  If the total is equal to or greater than your AC (16), the goblin hits you and you take 1d4 points of damage
      PencilWrite your new hit point total on your scratch paper.
Go back to Step 1 and continue attacking each other until either you or the goblin is at 0 or fewer hit points.

FROM HERE:
  • If you are reduced to 0 or fewer hit points, you have been defeated. Go to Entry #17.
  • If the goblin is reduced to 0 or fewer hit points, you have defeated the goblin. Go to Entry #13.
