15T BILLIARDS ROOM. A pitched battle is occurring. Seven halflings are to the east of the billiard table and six cobbling elves are inside the magic painting on the west wall.

7 Halfling Thieves (AC 10 (6); MV 9”; T1; hp 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 3, 4; #AT 1; D Short sword or thrown billiard ball; SA +3 with bow or sling; XP 30, 40, 38, 36, 34, 34, 36)

Thief skills: PP 35%, OL 30% F/RT 25% MS 25% HS 25% HN 15% CW 70% RL –

Each halfling has 3-18 (3d6) silver spanners.

6 Cobbling Elves (AC 10 (6); MV 12”; HD 1+1; hp 6, 5, 3, 3, 8, 6; #AT 1; D Hammer; SA +1 to hit with hammer or thrown heavy boot; SD 90% resistant to sleep and charm; XP 40, 38, 34, 34, 44, 40)

For the purposes of the combat, the elves are susceptible to missile weapons and spells that strike at a distance. Melee weapons do damage to the painting (and will destroy it).

Any person hit by a boot or a billiard ball gets a save vs petrification. If they make the save they take no damage. If they fail they take 1 point of damage. Since they are behind a billiard table and in a magic painting, both the halflings and elves should be treated as in 50% cover from each other (effective AC 6 for each group).

The party may choose to help one side or the other or do nothing. The whole thing started when a halfling read out loud the caption beneath the painting "Elfis Libris Majorcum". The halfing insulted the elves shoe making skills and a combat began.

If the elves chase off the halflings and have no other business to attend to, they will return to being a painting. They cannot leave the painting, but each character who helps fight the halflings will be given a pair of magic shoes:

Type of Shoes
Cleric, Druid, Bard, or Multi class
Shoes of Protection +1
Thief, Assassin, or Monk
Sandals of Skulking
Fighter, Paladin, or Ranger
Boots of Ass Kicking
Magic-user or illusionist
Loafers of Legerdemain

Shoes of Protection: Treat as a standard ring of protection.

Sandals of Skulking: +20% to move silently and + 15% to hide in shadows

Boots of Ass Kicking: +1 damage to all attacks.

Loafers of Legerdemain: Memorize one extra spell each day among all of those that you know (yes, it may be a high level spell).
