Dodge-roll around and stab the trolls in the ankles.

Hang on. What quality was that weapon rack? I'm hoping it was the masterpiece of some grumpy rage-prone carpenter. Not saying it would help us or anything; just that that would be funny.

...

Hm? Oh, right. Uh, throw severed trog bits at the nearest troll's head. At the very least, we can probably get some gore on his eyelids and then inconspicuously blind him with it.

Subtly use your power on the injured troll's wound. It won't die from that wound otherwise.

Trolls can literally bisect us with a swipe. Focus on crippling them with a stab/sever to the foot, etc, then getting the hell away so a companion can finish it off.

Be sure to hemomance the one that smashed our precious weapon rack. We are kobold, the important thing is that it was OUR weapon rack. Also, flex heroically after victory.


If red blood and blue blood mix, do you get purple blood? Just wondering what color any blood projectiles might be...

Alright, I did some arenawork on this.

These appear to be unskilled cave trolls. If that's so, we should not be in all that much danger right now. Test-Grawr was able to slaughter unskilled trolls with impunity, without any input on my part-- entirely AI-controlled, entirely randomized, he was severing limbs left and right, unscathed.

Now real Grawr has a broken arm, of course... but he also can exsanguinate people with his mind. I figure we're okay.

That said, it wouldn't do to underestimate our enemies. Trolls are big lumbering oafs, but any strike of theirs that actually connects can cause terrible damage: they've got horns to gore with, punch like a Mack truck, and can snap limbs like twigs. We should be fine, because !!DODGEROLL!!, and the champion should be fine, but our goblin friend is about to find herself in an ugly situation if we don't do something fast.

So, with all this in mind...

Sprint/!!dodgeroll!! toward the troll closest to us and the goblin-- the troll who smashed our weapon rack-- and shiv its leg or foot-- preferably a foot. Having done this, kill it in the most efficient way possible-- a stab to the head, perhaps, or a throat slash. Whatever's convenient.

Stay mobile, avoid becoming Tired, don't let the goblin die.

While I still say the lowest risk is to cripple and dodgeroll, then proceed to deathblows/exsanguination, +1.

Hey, can we still sense blood, like we did when we became a hemomancer? If so, we can guess the size and number of our next fight, if it has blood.

Ooh, good idea. +1, but wait until this troll-fight ends to try, so we're not dividing our attention.

Blood-sniffing later. Ankle-shivving now.

Now that we've got a plan for predicting fights based off of their blood:
Next Fight = Skeletal Bear

GM, please, please remember this rule for GMs: Don't use the ideas the players give you, it penalizes them for creativity.
Though, if they say an excellent evil plan in-character in front of the villain, its their own fault.

Do the walls appear climbable?

The walls are made from smoothed carved stone. They don't look climbable.

Hey, can we still sense blood, like we did when we became a hemomancer? If so, we can guess the size and number of our next fight, if it has blood.

You sense behind one of the doors a single large creature. You don't sense any blood behind the other door.

Subtly use your power on the injured troll's wound. It won't die from that wound otherwise.

You try to exsanguinate the troll but nothing happens. You also don't seem to be able to sense their blood.



Sprint/!!dodgeroll!! toward the troll closest to us and the goblin-- the troll who smashed our weapon rack-- and shiv its leg or foot-- preferably a foot. Having done this, kill it in the most efficient way possible-- a stab to the head, perhaps, or a throat slash. Whatever's convenient.

Stay mobile, avoid becoming Tired, don't let the goblin die.


You dodge roll behind the troll.
The troll misses the goblin who ducks under the attack!
The dwarf slashes the troll in the right upper arm, tearing the muscle and bruising the bone!



You slash the troll in the left foot, tearing apart the muscle and a motor nerve has been severed!



The troll falls over.
The goblin stabs the troll in the upper body, tearing the muscle and tearing the heart!
A major artery in the heart has been opened by the attack!

The troll colides with the goblin!
They tangle together and tumble forward!

The troll has been struckdown!



Meanwhile

The troll grabs the champion by his adamantine helm with his left hand!
The troll tries to remove the adamantine helm.
The troll gains possession of the adamantine helm.



The troll punches the champion in the head with his right hand and the injured part explodes into gore!
The champion has been struck down.
