Trouble at the crossroads ...

continued from the previous post ...

the Traveller was moved out of the town of Ingelwitz by the shortest route possible...
 a man who spotted the Traveller meets with an unsavoury character at the edge of town ...
 all going well on their way to the crossroads...
 some men block their way and a couple more come out of the trees on their right - 'looks like trouble ahead' says von Messing and they draw their swords...
blades clash ....
von Messing has his opponent at his back foot, the others hold their ground - they try and keep the traveller in the middle out of harms way ....
von Messing's opponent falls back wounded, another man steps in; Scharfe dispatches his opponent and Hofler gets a wound;
 the traveller is moved up by the barn by Fischer; while the rest fight on ...
 von Messing and Scharfe dispatch their opponents, while Hofler inflicts a wound on his opponent...
Scharfe comes to the aid of Hofler while von Messing deals with the last man in his way ....
 access to the road is secured ...
 Scharfe's opponent has had enough and runs off ....
 safely onto the road and not far from the Inn...
 they arrive at the Inn and the Traveller gets into the coach ...
they are soon off on their way to Ottenheim ....

[ the first outing for my new musketeer chaps; I wrote up a simple combat scheme and tried it out for this game, needs a little refinement but it worked well]
