morningstar and kills him!

Zethallon: [Wow!]

Randy P: The hobgoblin in black robes (#7) casts his

outstretched hand into the area where Tobbeee’s spell detonated, and the vines
& creepers immediately rescind and vanish.

Randy P: [totally kickass]

Randy P: [5 lethal hit points worth!]

Zethallon: [I think Randy listed them as hobgoblins so no]

brandi: [mebbe…FoB is better, especially since one of the
attacks can be a sunder, disarm, or trip]

Randy P: [that hits]

Richard Folk: Corbus Damage roll  5 
+  4  =  9

Randy P: [ok]

Randy P: The old human monk runs to H,9.

Randy P: [Corbus, make an AoO]

Randy P: [Koby is standing at J10

Randy P: but Hemon can move to J9 and accomplisg the same
