The last battle report for this round sees the Orcs pitted against the Reikland mercenaries.
The Orcs and Reiklanders started by advancing carefully towards each other. The Reiklanders began the fighting by taking a shot at Shagwolf with a longbow which managed to stun him. This then started an argument between Lagstuf and Glug about whether Shagwolf was as stupid as Glug’s mother and where he best place to stand would be. The rest of the Orcs stood back to watch the argument unfold, however Orthrod and Radbog climbed to the top of the tower where they were stood and settled the argument with a cuff round the back of the head. The Reiklanders took advantage of this lull to sneak along a hedge. No sooner was one argument settled among the Orcs then another started with Lagstuf shouting obscenities at Orcobal the Shaman, a brave thing to do when you could be turned into a toad. Another arrow stunned Radbog and the Reiklanders moved forward and hid behind a large hedge. Grymm settled the argument between Lagstuf and Orcobal before deciding that actually Lagstuf was right and joining in, while ignoring a hail of arrows flying all around them causing absolutely no damage to anybody. Orthrod and Radbog took a couple of shots and missed while a reply from the Reiklanders hit its target but failed to wound.
Grymm decided that Orcobal was really annoying him now and took the opportunity of a battle raging around them to tell him in no uncertain terms. Baldog and Agog spotted the Reiklanders hiding behind the hedge and Orthrod and Radbog took pot-shot’s at them which failed to come anywhere near their targets. The Reiklanders replied with their bows again hitting but failing to wound, however a pistol shot stunned Agog. At this point a recovered Shagwolf led the charge in and managed to take out a Reiklander Champion, Lagstuf and Glug took a Youngblood out of the battle and Radbog knocked over another Reiklander. The Reiklanders counter attacked, stunning Shagwolf but found themselves unable to take advantage of it while Glug was knocked to the floor and a pistol shot from the Captain stunned Lagstuf. Radbog started boasting to Orthrod about what a great shot he was with a crossbow so Orthrod decided to shut him up by knocking over another Reiklander himself. Orcobal finally realised that Grymm had been insulting him so started to yell insults back. Grymm however ignored him and charged into close combat, knocking down a Reiklander. The Reiklander Captain decided that enough was enough and despite the Orcs arguing among themselves it would be better to live to fight another day and called his men off, leaving the streets to the Orcs.
That’s it for this round. The next round of battles is decided and will be the subject of my next post. Things are hotting up and we’ll see what the results from this round lead to.
