Initiative is rolled (1d6; Soval=5,1, Legandir=5+1, Orcs=5).
Soval and Legandir and the barking of Alf alert the slumbering company as many Orcs descend into the valley.
Legandir lets fly a fair shaft of Rivendell form his longbow in lightning swift movement (1d20=19) as he spring up and it flies flat and true for (2dd=3,3) 7 hit points, punching right through an Orc neck and flinging it backward into shadow by the force.
Soval, meanwhile, is sorely beset by the villainous three sneaks and hard pressed to regain his presence after suffering the assassin's wound. Yet though the Orcs close hungrily, and though he might stagger, Soval roars his warning aloud, and dashes at the foe clumsily with shield and sword alike (1d20; Soval=17, Orcs=12,13,7, Soval's 2nd attack=13), fending off their wicked blades with pure determination, and suffering many hard dings upon his mail, but they cannot pierce him! Indeed, Orc Slayer knows his foe and cleaves shield and mail and skull with his keen blade (2dd=5,4 and 5,5) dealing 8 and 13 hit points.
Two of the foe are eviscerated by his terrible blows, but alas, where one Orc falls two more clamour to face him!
The remainder of the company wake with a start and tumble blearily from their bedrolls, grasping frantically at weapons.
(Excepting those who were on watch, nobody is wearing a helm or carrying a shield. Of those who were asleep, they may have been sleeping in gambeson, leather or Elvish mail only. Those who regularly wear heavier armour are wearing only the gambeson undercoat (AC 8) as they sleep).
The camp is about to be over-run by scores of Orcs!
If there are no changes to the previous orders I will take them as your actions for the upcoming round... if you wish to change them you may. Legandir and Soval, what is your wish?
