The drums of doom

The time: the Hyperborian age. The place: the Aquilonian frontier with the Picts. A wild space full of dangers.

“Oh no, look out!” Tuya cries but it’s too late. She hears the crack of the snake man’s neck.
She kicks her horse back as the ape seems a fearsome beast and keeps her arrow trained on the ape.
“Everyone keep moving!” She shouts to the family.

“The Picts must have trained it!” Tuya squeaks and lets her arrow fly at the advancing ape.

Servius fires his crossbow at the ape, his shot proving equally accurate and powerful.

The creature screams of fury and pain and his eyes are mad; it jumps in your direction, provoking the panic of the people nearby. Even your horses are afraid, but before they can run, the ape creature is already near you and attacks Tuya who hurt it more. It punches Tuya with a migthy blow, that hits Tuya leaving her badly hurt; she never fell so much pain as she feel her bones being smashed, but somehow she keeps her wits .

OOC: Ouch, the creature was very kucky. That is 8 points of damage. By the rules, Tuya suffered more than 5 points of damage in a single bow (meaning 1 wound) and reduced her vigor to 0 (another wound). You have now 3 wounds (you started with 5).
Remember that you have 2 momentum and 3 fortune points. The fortune poins can be use to (1 point each):
-recover the vigor
-have an automatic success to hit
-perform an extra action.
This is the near end of the game, spend it without concerns.
It is your turn now.

Another blow like that and Tuya will be meeting the Hunter in the Sky.
Feeling the adrenaline surging through her veins, she tries to ignore the pain and looses another arrow at the ape and kick her horse out reach.

Servius unsheathes his sword and strikes the ape a powerful blow.
Spoiler:
If the ape is not dead yet after this, I'll use a fortune point to take another action so I can attack again.

Servius lands another accurate and devastating blow on the ape.
Spoiler:
If that doesn't kill it, I'll spend another fortune point for a third attack.

Tuya hit the creature and then run to a safer distance; Servius attacked and with a deadly precision hit several blows with his sword. The creature turn to Servius and for a moment it looked as if the creature would attack him. But unstead, it closed it's eyes and fall like a dead tree. In that moment Servius and Tuya heard a terrible cry in a pictish voice from the woods.

"Let's hunt down that Pict," says Servius. "Anyone who can control such a beast is too dangerous to let escape."

“Er, okay. I’ll be right behind you.” Tuya climbs off her horse if the bushes look too thick to ride through.
“It almost seemed like the Pict let the ape die. She says as she follows Servius into the trees with an arrow notched ready.
