That desire to harm yourself. Is it psychosis or the Imp of the Perverse? A B/X, BECMI, LL, Basic-era monster.

A bit of B/X D&D tonight with the wife (playing Honor Willowtrust, a 3rd level Cleric) and 17 year-old cousin (playing Falcor, a 1st level Elf)!

This was the first time in four years that my wife asked to play after being defeated by Kobolds (I had rolled three natural 20s in the final round!) and being imprisoned in wicker & bamboo cages deep in their caves beneath the House of Three Squires...

They managed to escape from the kobold cages using guile, subterfuge, wits and stealth. Upon their escape, however a battle broke out with the two Kobold guards ("Crude Carpenter" & "Fond of Halfling Blood") and soon four more reinforcements arrived ("The Intimidator, Spitting Brawler, Sure Shot & Charging Blindly").

The bloody & brutal combat, using improvised weapons taken from their captors, left several other prisoners dead (the innkeeper's two sons and daughter) and the Elf was nearly killed but healed by the Cleric.

"Crooked Tooth," the tribal shaman of the Red Crest Clan, arrived to see her elite honor guard (6 Kobolds total!) decimated by the heroes! Defeated, but preparing a wicked brew in her skull-pot, she now proposes an alliance against her rival, Saw Back, who zealously guards the eggs in the Hatchery...

Art files I used for homemade landscape B/X DM screen (see other 2 threads also if interested). These were just pics I had on my computer that seemed to orient well and look cool/appropriate. When printing them print as 'full page photo' and un-click 'fit picture to frame'.
