So, actually, it went pretty well. Yeah, they got thru exactly one random overland encounter, and two rooms in the dungeon in a 6 hour run, but what the heck. No timeouts, no tears, no threats. And to be fair, at least three to four other rooms in the dungeon came to them - they were not really the most stealthy group, no they were not.
The orc berserker ignoring the golinoids that charged in from the next rooms over in favor of looting corpses from the previous fight (for several turns), until one party member promised him 100GP to join the fight right now -he did, and kept the party from being rolled up but got torn up, badly; when he demanded payment, the answer was "I lied, and by the way, how does it feel to have only four hitpoints left, hmmmm? Tell you what, I'll sell you this heal spell for 100GP"
The huge Legolas vs Chuck Norris fight when the bosses main minion hobgoblin monk mook (MMHMM) smashed thru a door and got all "boot to the head" with the Elven ranger. Turns out that a +1 bastard sword and good armor beats long training and mystic martial arts -although it was close.
(It was initially suggested that it was Bruce Lee vs Legolas, but everyone pretty quickly agreed that no way could Bruce Lee lose a fight, period. One of them even referencec the dragon movie where Bruce kicked Chuck's ass, which, true or not, impressed the hell out of me for geekery above and beyond....)
The final fight ended with two epic crits on the same round * just as the two really tough mooks were about to win ; one delivered by a 1HP fighter at -3 from a concussion (the other to the Chuck Norris hobdude). There was massive high fiveing, fist bumping and general jpyful end zone dances.
Now thats a way to end a game ! Yeah.
And this, is apparently, post 200. Wow.
* both legit nat 20s rolled in the open, same round; double damaged followed by a max damage roll. I described everyone in the room as looking like they had exploded a can of dinty-moore beef stew.
