Default Tactical Encounter #3 - Panic at the Thisco!

I've written up another tactical encounter to share. Hopefully you enjoy it.
It's a bandit attack at a roadside tavern.

In my initial playtests, the dice were against my sample 32-point characters and I had two TPK's, so a little tougher than my earlier scenarios.

This time, I'm including the full-size map separately, in case anyone wants to scale it down to smaller hexes or print it out as a 21"x16" poster.

The newer template prints a Melee map on four sheets of paper, as opposed to the three sheet maps I have been using, which is unfortunate, but it allowed me a bit more freedom.

All comments or criticisms welcome, either here or by PM.

Looks nice. Reminds me of an old "Gunslinger" scenario. One point; your bandits are ST10 but carry 2d-1 shortswords. These actually require a ST of 11. So they should really carry cutlasses 2d-2 or up their ST values to 11.

D'oh! Great catch..... I'll update it tonight and repost. I wanted their strength at 10, so cutlasses it is!
