[Sellswords] Battle Report: Greenskin Hunters

Today I played the second scenario of my Solo campaign of "Sellswords & Spellslingers". The basic scenario was from the rulebook: Orcs and slippery stones pg44.

Orcs and Goblins harass a nearby village of the fortified town of Lakoras.
Amron decide to help the villagers, but only because they offered a reward for each greenskin killed.

Background:
The purse of Amron was rather poor, just some few silver pieces were not enought to buy the scroll he wanted from the wizards' guild of Lakoras. He needed to gain more money and the villagers offered to him a fair reward for each greenskin head he could take to them.
Amron: "Well, it's time to work, my friends... Clean up the area from the greenskin scum!"
The Twins looked with an offense expression, then Amron smiled under his helmet and said:
"With the obvious exception of my friends, the Twins, of course... You are not scum." 😏

Amron is the bastard son of the rich merchant and explorer Dante Graciale of Tobaro. He is an half elf. His father never said much about Amron's elf mother. He simply told him that his mother chose his name before abandoning him and that she was a witch. Being an half elf and the result of an illicit relationship, Amron could not be officially recognized by the Graciale family, however his father grew him as his son and he could enjoy a comfortable life. When he was an adult, he finds out to have the spellcaster gift and his father paid a magician to teach him. Dissatisfied with the limiting lessons of his teacher, he decided to begin a journey in the Border Princes, where he could test is magic skills and learn magic faster.

Amron: "Nicely done, Daethskar, the first kill of the day is yours." πŸ˜‰

Amron cast two Fireball spells, one orc brute is gone and the other is wounded with just one hit point.
Amron: "Another greenskin is gone... Too easy." 😏

Amron finish the wounded orc brute with his fireball and the Twins move to rob the body.
The Twins: "Dead Orc rich, many coins for us!"
Amron: "The Twins, you are a really little petty thieves..." πŸ˜’

Amron cast another fireball and two goblins are killed. He rob the orc brute and gain a potion of defness.

Amron: "That's unfair, I'm doing all the work, while you take all the loot!" 😣
