The twelfth level superdungeon party decided to try to catch the patrol that had left the fort before they attacked it. Using the knowledge of Robert the Captain turned prisoner they avoided the double back and arrived safely at the meeting place where a Beholder and his group were plotting on attacking nearby settlements.
The sneaky party caught the force by surprise! I rolled a three for the deepwood snipers on sentry and a two for both the beholder and illithid.
Fifty eight points to the beholder before it even acted and the combination of fireball from bard and lightning bolt from their dragon cohort toasted the illithid. Fun game!
