Where's Eric?

He couldn't make it. He had to work. He's promised to shout "Dwarves!" at random intervals.

You know if he has the office to himself?

Where's his character?

His Druid turned hmself into a cat and failed a Will save.

How are we going to get past those guard and their undead dogs?

How do undead dogs smell?

I cast Hold Person on those 2 guards.

The first one saves but te second one rolls an 11. He does get a new Save every round though.

I cast Grease on those squares where the first guard is.

The first guard fails his Dex Save and the second guard rolls another 11 v. Hold Person.

The first guard finally makes his Dex Save and runs over to the second guard trying to wake him. The second guard rolls another 11.

I cast Grease again now that the two guards are together.

The first guard fails his Dex save. The second guard does not need to roll v. Grease but the first guard rolled so badly he dragged the second guard down with him. The second guard rolls another 11 v. Hold Person.

The first guard makes his Dex save and gets up.

I cast Gust.

<later>

I cast Grease on the top of the stairs.

I always loved doing that. Get the guards chasing us, Grease on the top few steps, and watch them do the rest themselves. :)

Sounds like a fair exchange rate. Children are too small to do any useful work yet, and even if you're a Gourmand there's not enough there for more than one meal...
