Milton points in the direction of the allies, and heads there himself.

Alexander runs as quickly as he can chasing after the hopping form of the nimble Milton. Their enemies stand fast, watching them retreat. They are too injured and weak in numbers to pursue.

A few hundred yards out from the manner, Alexander and Milton turn to see more figures pouring from the building. One man is leading a large mastiff. Just ahead, Milton sees familiar faces. Aldarren and Fredrick are moving to meet them, longbows nocked...

Coming up behind them are 6 men-at-arms with crossbow.

Alexander changes his sword for his shortbow and nocks an arrow: "Fire!" he will incite sergeant Gustafson and the other men.

Frederick uses his longbow to good effect, killing one of the enemy well before they can get into range. Alexander, and two crossbow men hit their targets during a volley of arrows and bolts. In the distance, you see the injured "club man" fall and another man-at-arms who came out of the manor. Three Kills!

The enemy approaches...they are twelve in number and one large mastiff, eight of them carry crossbows. Eight bolts streak through the air...four bolts strike true!

Aldarren takes a bolt in the shoulder [5 damage!]

Alexander gets nicked for [1 point of damage...he has 2 hp left!]

A man-at-arms is hit for 2 damage.

Another man-at-arms takes 1 point of damage.

Actions?

Sorry, but i had Sgt. Gustafson in the party last post. He is actually leading the rest of the villagers to New Wickersham

Initiative...foes=2, PCs=1

The foes close to 100', within medium range for their crossbows...and let their bolts fly.

Eight quarrels rip towards the PCs...

[random roll to see who is targeted. Roll is targeting...9, 4, 2, 6, 5, 6, 11, 11]

A bolt at Man-at-arms #3....19! A hit for 5 damage! He goes down with a bolt to the chest!

Another shot at Milton...2! A Miss!

Alexander gets hit for 1 damage! [roll=19] Alexander is hanging in there with 1 HP remaining!

Man-at-arms #1 is targeted....10! A Miss!

Sep, the villager is hit hard! [20! roll damage twice...for a total of 7!] Sep falls to his knees, blood pouring from his side..."Please save my daughter, young knight!" He closes his eyes to awake nevermore.

Man-at-arms #1 takes another bolt...19! For 4 points of damage! Corporal Brennan falls with a bolt in his neck.

The last two bolts are fired at Man-at-arms #6. One bolt misses...the other hits for 1 damage!

This was a deadly volley for the PCs...three good men down...and others badly injured!

PCs Turn

Aldderan fires his shortbow twice...[5 and 3...both miss!]

Alexander shots twice with his shortbow...[14 and 15 both hit!] Two of the enemy crossbowmen fall!

Frederick fires his longbow twice...[11 and 18...both hit!] One man down, one injured [5 and 1 dmg]

Milton gets off two quick shots...[16 and 1...hit and miss!] [Injured one man for 4 hp]

4 crossbows fire....[10, 18, 19, 18....four hits!] [4, 3, 5, 5 dmg] Three more men fall, one injured.

The PCs return fire and kill 6 of the enemy! Two crossbows remain and three spear and shield men, one dog handler with a large mastiff.

What are your actions!

With his last strength, Alexander fires another volley of arrows, hoping it will be the last one needed!
