Situation: The Fellowship finds itself in the lair of one of the nameless things that gnaws at the roots of the world. 

Combat Advantage dice:
• Arbogast 1/1
• Esgalwen n/a
• Grimbeorn 1/1
• Hathcyn 2/2

Situation Modifiers:
• The Nameless Thing has the initiative. 
• Anyone in a Rearward stance may attempt to climb the tunnel out of the hill - this will require multiple Athletics successes.
• The Nameless Thing may only be attacked by characters who first make a Valour roll against TN 17. 

Physical Modifiers (complications):
• Unless at least two torches are lit, the TN to hit the Nameless Thing is increased by two. 
• A lit torch must be held, requiring a free hand to do so.

As he moves into position to block the mouth of the tunnel, Arbogast sees what may be a vulnerable spot between two chitinous plates on what may be the Thing's throat.  Summoning his courage...

Eclecticon

No strength of the heroes of elder ages has he, to smite it down with a single blow, but he takes a wild satisfaction in the clear, almost sap-like substance that oozes from the edges of the creature's new wound.  His heart skips a beat, however, when he sees the creature's savage attack upon his friend and companion, swallowing his axe-arm down to the shoulder.  The Son of Beorn rips his limb free, but it is bloodied and torn on the teeth of this burrower beneath the world.

Grimbeorn holds his ground from the vicious attack; they must succeed at this venture!  Altering his stance, he moves to the defensive, making him a harder target to hit, while looking for a target of opportunity.
