"Who made you commander?" Xubu Kai asked Liu Yun derisively. But it seems like this was more of a playful jest than a serious challenge to Liu Yun's authority, for as he said this, he laughed and galloped to the East.

Xubu Kai, watching the north side, had witnessed a mob encroaching from the East and riders and a tiger coming from the other side. Having discussed the best course of action with the others on patrol, he decides to follow Liu Yun's strategy. It makes the most sense to deal with the riders and the tiger. First of all, they seem to be a smaller force. Secondly, it behooves the 4 generals on patrol to maximize force concentration on one side, deal with it as effectively possible, and then deal with the other issue. In the meanwhile, Xubu Kai hopes that the individuals protecting the child can fend off the encroaching mob. As soon as one threat was dealt with, he and the others could reinforce the other side.

Xubu Kai readied his two swords and joined Chen Ping in a fight to hold off the smaller force of riders. He yells out a bunch of Xiongnu words in an attempt to bewilder and confuse the assailants, randomly throwing in the Chinese word for tiger (虎) to make them think he knew something special about the animal they brought with them. He makes sure to stay side by side with Chen Ping and focus on the riders rather than their pet, who Liu Yun seems to have taken an interest in.

As everyone found their positions and ran about, Song Xi calmly stood still and watched. He rose a finger and started to walk towards the family.

"Fighting isn't exactly my thing. You all can have fun. I will make sure these lovely people are safe. Though I'm sure Mr. Liu Jian here will be doing most of that work."

Song Xi would take a spot behind Liu Jian and the family with his crossbow ready if anyone were to come into range.

Nodding in agreement with the group, Xiang Zhi Cheng mounted his stead towards the village heart looking for the local militia in an attempt to warn and organize them.

Glancing at Liu Jian with something akin to exasperation, Hu Jintao shakes his head.

"I will stay and guard the boy, and despite what this 'broski' seems to want, I have no plans to look at his backside."

Protect the child wrote:Meng Jun Attack patrol group instead of mob
Liu Jian Guard kid
Xiang Zhi Cheng Rally militia
Song Xi Guard kid
Sun Liang Face the mob
Zhang Gao Rally militia
Hu Jintao Guard kid


Patrol wrote:Shen Feng Warn others
Xubu Kai Face tiger and men
Chen Ping Face tiger and men
Liu Yun Face tiger and men


As Zhang Gao and Xiang Zhi Cheng ran to mobilize the local militia, they were quickly cut off. What looked like an unorganized mob quickly showed their true colors as experienced mercenaries. They managed to fight through the detachment with such bravery, yet had they been delayed too long?

Sun Liang came out to face the mob alone while the others stayed within the house. There were so many of them and he fought bravely, but many were able to get pass him.

Meng Jun reached the others that were patrolling on time to deliver a few good bolts but it was the combined efforts of Liu Yun, Chen Ping and Xubu Kai that really forced that group to retreat. Once they saw this, they came back towards the home to see it surrounded, they joined that fight causing significant casualties but did not know how many had gotten into the house.

Shen Feng had managed to warn the others on time and joined the fight within the house, they were able to barricade it enough to hold off a good amount of time.

Rolls are here. Note three participants will be exited this turn, simple highest roll in each group.

Rolls wrote:Meng Jun (47) + Sun Liang (5) + Xubu Kai (19) + Chen Ping (80) + Liu Yun (73) => Chen Ping OUT
Liu Jian (54) + Song Xi (7) + Hu Jintao (70) => Hu Jintao OUT
Xiang Zhi Cheng (27) + Zhang Gao (24) + Shen Feng (20) => Xiang Zhi Cheng OUT (missed a roll so added a new one here)


In the end, the mercenaries were pushed back while the kid and parents were left unharmed. Chen Ping was harmed during the skirmish and decided to head back home to heal. Hu Jintao had to throw himself into a blow aimed for the child and the wound was deep. He refused to go, but he would no longer be able to participate in any fights for a while. Xiang Zhi Cheng had led the local men of the village in the rear attack and had been hit by a stray blade in the arm. He too decided to go back home to tend to his wound, believing his contributions would be too limited.

There was a lot of bodies around Sun Liang as he collapsed of fatigue when they retreated. Everyone else gathered around to look at all the bodies, they were definitely mercenaries and well paid ones.

You can RP for a while, next update early next week

"Alright, what the hell was that? Mercenaries aren't monsters." The fighting had left Shen Feng feeling fatigued, though he fortunately wasn't seriously wounded. His nose wrinkled as he surveyed the carnage.

"I never really thought an actual monster would be involved, though the other group back there did have a tiger. But what is it about mercenaries that would make a kid cry? There's still something here we're missing."

Cleaning his blade" Maybe the family isn't giving us every thing they know. This was a well thought out attack by professionals. Maybe something is in the home hidden." Liu Yun eyes the family and house. His body still trembling with adrenaline. " I'm going to talk to the guards and look at the fortifications."

Sun Liang took his breath and look around him to see if one of the mercenary was still alive. As he get back up and clean his blade he start talking: ''Who could have send those mercenaries to attack the house ? We should search the bodies and try to find more information: maybe one of the is still breathing.'' Sun liang then puts his sword back in his sheath and start looking at the bodies around him.

Xubu Kai is fighting alongside Chen Ping when he sees a blade being swung in Chen Ping's direction out of the periphery of his vision. He feigns a motion as if to protect him. At the last second, however, he deliberately misses and instead swings one of his own swords at nothing. In so doing, Xubu Kai entirely misses the attacker's blade and allows it to cut deeply into his ally. Xubu Kai's own sword swooshes through the air while Chen Ping is hit head-on and receives a grievous wound.

Then Xubu Kai pretends that this was a mere error on his part and acts as if he is greatly upset.

"Chen Ping!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" he screams melodramatically. "MY BEST FRIEND! HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO YOU?!" he shouts.

He turns to the attackers and puts about 40% of his effort into fighting them, acting as if he is heroically trying to avenge his supposed best friend. In reality, Chen Ping is just some chump that Xubu Kai only recently met. "YOU'LL PAY FOR WHAT YOU DID TO MY COMRADE!" Xubu Kai shouts dramatically. And then with the others, he fends off the attackers and the tiger, albeit with only average exertion on Xubu Kai's part in spite of all of his alleged bravado.

When all is said and done, Chen Ping ends up being alive, albeit wounded. The attackers are also driven off, albeit with Xubu Kai doing a proportionately small amount of the fighting. But Xubu Kai, despite being well aware of these facts, continues to act in a duplicitous, excessively histrionic fashion. "We will all remember the great sacrifice Chen Ping made today..." he says solemnly. "The life of our fallen comrade will not be in vain! Now let us make haste back to the town to deal with the next threat, so that we do not let Chen Ping's efforts go to waste!" He shouts this to the other individuals who had fought alongside him, and then leads a full gallop back into town.
