Kyoshi will save the day

Kyoshi might be chewy enough to buy us a few rounds.

I am totally supportive of operation don’t-fight-the-dragon. Basically we all had a team huddle, and estimated our chances of survival - which are beyond slim, improbable or highly unlikely. They range into the realms of impossible. Speaking purely from Kubo San’s point of view, if the dragon breathes on him he’s dead. If the dragon tries to hit him, he’s dead. If Kubo San gets too close, he’ll provoke an attack of opportunity and he’ll be dead. Kubo San can’t run, he can’t hide, he can’t hit the AC, and he can’t take the damage. If Kubo San even tries, he’s dead. You also have to consider the damage reduction, the spell resistance, the hitpoints, and the simple fact that when the dragon gets tired of the party tickling him with their pointy sticks, he will just flap his wings and fly away.

On tactics and strategy, I was unaware of any orders or objectives. The instruction to ‘hold the line’ came after the wave of barbarians had passed into the city centre. If the barbarian horde’s tactic was to bellow ‘death to all humans’ and then ignore all defenders and charge into the city centre, then it worked and that’s fine by me, but I’m not sure how fair it is to criticize our tactics for incorrectly guessing the objective. :)
