Astrid thrust her spear at the first goblin (skill 3 + dice 6 = 9). The goblin screamed in agony as the spear pierced it's skin (skill 4 + dice 4 = 8. Goblin #1 takes 1 damage).
The second goblin retalitated, striking Astrid with it's jagged blade (skill 4 + dice 4 = 8. Astrid skill 3 + dice 2 = 5. Astrid takes 3 damage). Seeing their advantage, the third goblin also struck out at the wounded valkyrie (skill 4 + dice 2 = 6. Astrid skill 3 + dice 1 = 4. Astrid takes 2 damage).
Seeing that the goblins would be difficult to outsmart, the female warrior realised she would have to use her superior strength. She aimed her spear again at the first goblin, and pierced him with a mighty blow (strength 5 + dice 6 = 11. Goblin strength 2 + dice 1 = 3. Goblin takes 8 damage... dead). The goblin fell down dead and the other two backed off. She knew if she could kill one more that the third would flee.
The second goblin, enraged by the death of the first, jumped at the valkyrie, but Astrid easily blocked the attack (strength 2 + dice 2 = 4). Astrid again rammed her spear through the creatures shoulder and it screamed in agony (Astrid strength 5 + dice 5 = 10. Goblin takes 6 damage...).
The third goblin also launched a futile attack (strength 2 + dice 3 = 5) with Astrid stabbing him in his leg (Astrid strength 5 + dice 4 = 9. Goblin takes 4 damage...).
Both heavily wounded, the goblins began to circle the female warrior who was also bleeding, seeking to find a weak spot where they could attack her. One began to mutter something in their language and then threw what seemed to be a shimmering powder at the valkyrie (magic 1 + dice 3 = 4). Astrid merely scoffed at their feeble attempts at magic, and spiralling her spear in the air then swung the hilt at the second goblin. She hit him clean in the head (magic 4 + dice 4 = 8. Goblin takes 4 damage...) and he fell to the floor dead.
Seeing his two associates dead on the cold stone floor, the third goblin dropped his sword and scarpered out of the chamber into the darkness. Astrid had won again, but at what cost? She was hurting and weak.
Astrid takes 5 damage but gains 1 luck for a successful battle. I'm not sure what door you want to use next??
