> OOC: Advance to the head of the path, take cover and reassess the

The guard nods and makes his way up the path as stealthily as he can.
Oz is able to get within forty feet of the tower. The tower is set
atop a rock outcropping, with one entry; a broken down door. There are
five bodies on the ground by the tower, all in patchwork armor and not
New Camelot soldiers. Oz can spot two snipers in the bushes across
from him.

Inside the tower, from what Oz can see, is the ugly chaos of battling
inside a closed space. He can see Sir Prrcyvel and one of his guards
braced in hand to hand combat with at least four men. Another of the
New Camelot guards is lying on the ground, dead or injured. One of the
men battling Sir Prrcyvel seems to have some sort of silvery metal
gauntlets on his otherwise naked arms that glow with each blow he
rains upon the knight.

Looking back at the path, Oz can see his own guard creeping up the
path and taking position just off of it in the brush. He radios Oz and
reports "Pitched battle sir. I think I can take out one of the snipers
from here. Should I try?"
