So here is the report of my first game. For those who have already bought and played the game some of the narrative may seem slightly out of step as I made a few errors, forgetting some paragraphs, backtracking sometimes to correct, sometimes not! But a tale was woven none the less...

|The explored sections of the dungeon.|
With the route a dead end the group head back to the entrance hall and move through the door alongside the corridor (Room #3). First through the door is the warrior, who springs a trap. He manages to leap out of harms way as the floor beneath his feet disappears. The party start to turn back the their starting point when they are ambushed by a horde of 12 minor goblinoids. Caught unawares the Heinrich takes a wound, but the heroes group round and the vermin flee once their number has been dropped by more than half, although the Tatharon did pick up an injury.

Taking the most southerly route, the group move through a couple of empty corridors before turning north. They continue north at a crossroads to the end of the corridor (#5) where they are "greeted" by 5 hobgoblins. The Elf quickly fires off an arrow then the Fighter and Dwarf charge in. All 3 attacks miss however. The Hobgoblins are obviously in a state of shock as they cannot land any blows before the Fighter and Dwarf whittle their number down to 2. This brace however are not worried by their comrades falling and try to attack on, but they make no impression and the Marcus finishes them both off next attack. A gem is prised from the hilt of one of the weapons as payment for the bother caused.
The small room at the corridor end is empty, so the party open the door on the other side into a long dog leg corridor. Ignoring the door in the north wall they continue along and round the corner (#6), where they are faced with the Final Boss of this dungeon - a Small Dragon! Being in the corridor unfortunately means that only the front two members (Marcus and Geddi) can attack. Their initial attempts miss however. The Dragon responds to this threat with it's fiery breath, burning all 4 of the party. The 2 frontmen make their next attacks count but the Boss fills the area with fire once more burning all but the dwarf, who ducks under the flow. The heroes attack again, with only Geddi striking home, but he is bitten in retaliation. Another round of attacks and the Dwarf hits again. The Dragon is starting to look worse for wear now and it misses with it's attacks. A couple more attacks from the group eventually sees the Warrior deal a killing blow. The experience of defeating the Dragon boss lets Marcus and Geddi level up. And party scoop some treasure. Amongst the loot is a magic sword, taken by The Warrior and a magic wand of sleep (3 charges), which can only be used by the Elf. The Cleric uses the lull in action as an opportunity to heal the wounds of the Tatharon and himself.
The Adventure Party continue out of the dungeon without incident, with the main mission accomplished and slightly richer for the experience.
