"Aye sir!" the man says, and disappears into forest.

Oz's first shot [Strike: 7] misses the window entirely and hits the
side of the tower [Damage: 60 MD]. Clearly, despite the stone-like
construction, the tower is made of stronger stuff, because while some
of the stone is blown away, a good deal remains.

Oz's second shot is much better [Strike: 22], and he hits one of Sir
Prrcyvel's opponents [Damage: 20MD]. Suddenly, the two opponents are
thrown into disarray, realizing there's a sniper. One gives up
fighting Prrcyvel and starts firing in Oz's general direction out the
window [Strike: 3], missing Oz completely.

Prrcyvel takes the opportunity to bear down on the one opponent. At
the same time Oz fires two more shots [Strikes: 20 (not natural) and
22], hitting both attackers again [Damage: 20MD and 20MD]. The
attacker by the window is not killed, but the other still attacking
Prrcyvel, obviously already having heavily damaged armor, drops to the
ground dead.

Prrcyvel leaps at the remaining attacker, grabs him and smashes his
head against the stone wall a couple of times until the man goes limp.
Prrcyvel then looks out the window and waves. "Osmar, old chap, is
that you! Come to the party a bit late, I see, but I did try to save
you a morsel or two!"

At that moment Oz's man radios to him. "Sir, it's bad. One of your
party, Sir Justin I believe his name was, he is badly injured. Best
come quick!"
