Wargs on the Hillside - Round 1

At the blowing of Hathcyn's horn, several of the wolves cringe and though they thereafter come forth once more, they no longer do so in a headlong rush.  This the Foresthelm's companions mark but distractedly, for it seems to them that in the moment when the horn's note rang forth, a spark was kindled and shone from the brow of his helm, reflecting from the very drops of rain about him. 

Though perilous foes press ever closer, still the hearts of Esgalwen and Gwaithlim lift as they recall the tales of the wrath and valour of the captains of the Númenóreans of old.  And then the wargs are among the company, springing over shields and spears alike to set bone-gnawing jaws to work. 


:ooc: The wargs attack!

Gwaithlim's horse screams as the jaws of a warg, a great beast snarling with hunger and fury, suddenly close about its leg.  The poor animal tries in vain to rear and break free of the beast, and instead crashes to the ground...

:ooc: Right, the one hit from the wargs is on Gwaithlim's horse.  Horses don't have Endurance stats of their own, so non-Piercing injuries just require an Athletics test (for riding skill) with a TN equal to 10 plus the damage dealt.  In this case, though, the Warg's roll produced a Piercing injury, so the roll is instead to see whether Gwaithlim gets stuck beneath it.  The TN is 10+5-2 (for the Radhors' riding modifier) = 13. 

Gwaithlim's roll:

Rolled 2d6 : 5, 4, total 9

:ooc: We're just waiting on Matt, right? We cannot attack this round because we just dismounted and then waited for the enemy to come to us?

If we can, I will roll an attack - otherwise ignore this or move it to the next round.


Though the rain washed down her face, Esgalwen could clearly see the monster that was now before her. It's face was scarred from many fights, an ear was clipped, and dark and thick was its pelt. Nimronyn shone in the night - as orcs were nearby - and it helped the woman to know where to strike.

That is a :%: :%: success for 22 :<3: loss and a  :+~: wound. The warg will need to make a TN 16 :<>: test.

Moving with the grace for which his folk are famed, Gwaithlim avoids his horse as the beast falls, the wargs already beginning to tear at its throat and stomach.  Its screams blend with those of Men as the wargs fall upon them, savage muzzles already red with hot blood.  But they do not do so unopposed, for Esgalwen strikes out with Nimronyn, splitting the skull of the wolf before her.  Above the fray rises her cry of victory.
