Anoras sees two sorcerers in masks and regalia (including amulets on each*), and four warriors. There is no sign of the prisoners. A crow is perched on one of the sorcerers. Two warriors lead the way, then the two sorcerers. there are probably more coming.



*amulets have a variety of purposes, but one is effectively one use of luck used against attacks only. The amulet will break when triggered.


You may now take more elaborate actions.

"Oh like there are enemies!

And there like at range!

And I'm like an archer!

So I'll like shoot at them!"

Cassandra positively beams as she connects the dots and goes to do just that!

Fast draw arrow, then draw bow, then aim 3 rounds, then loose as all out attack is her plan

Anoras may be a stubborn know-it-all. And she's good in Tactics. But she knows that, when it comes to actual combat, Cassandra and Thad are much more qualified than she is. So it's time for her to stop trying to tell people what to do.

Anoras (speaking quietly to Thad and Cassandra): "The two in the middle wearing masks and regalia, both with an amulet and one with a crow, are the sorcerers."

Thad readies his shield and axe, giving it a spinning flourish. He grins with bared teeth as he steps forward.

"Finally, my axe will taste sorcererís blood. Stay behind me, friends, and we'll take our revenge swiftly."

Who is your target.

Unless thad wants to charge out at your foes immediately, Kalazazz can have cassandra roll her attack roll without the foes noticing you.

two more soliders come out, and then some skeletons.

OOC: I was also very frustrated for a long time. I think I've finally figured it out. I think.

Anoras (speaking quietly to Thad so as not to disturb the aiming Cassandra): "I'm going to move away a bit to attack from a different angle. If either of you is captured, I'll use a backup story to try to rescue you. If that happens, please let me do the talking."

Anoras moves to disassociate herself from the other two.



Cassandra looses her arrow. She hits the lead soldier in the torso, the arrow sinking deep into his armor (5 damage). Its not enough to drop him.


The soldiers ready their shields, then draw their weapons, and the Sorcerors look around for where the arrow came from.

Thad is ready to protect his archer, should someone cross the 200 paces that quickly, or if they sneak up on the group through the woods.

Who is she aiming at?


The sorcerers move back into the woods quickly (three seconds)
The warriors take a little longer, but the three warriors with shields (including the one hit) have them up, and they're all alert (three seconds to six seconds). The skeletons turn around and march back in to the forest over the course of eight seconds.
