It is mid-spring of the year 256 and the minotaur fiend Edimi Idacavere ifathaobi 'The Courageous Shadow' pays a visit to our fort. H Squad alongside Bomrek Bowink from X Squad assemble and head over to prepare a welcoming party for our guest.
Ignoring the tactical option of having Bowink first shoot the minotaur to weaken it, H Squad instead charge the beast and engage at close-quarters.
Zas Laboredskies (H8) takes the opportunity to bash the minotaur in the left foot, hand and arm bruising it; whilst Bowink (X4) shoots the beast in the arm with his crossbow. Finally both Tobul Trotswords (H3) and Laboredskies bash the minotaur in the head, killing it. Trotswords' blow put the beast to the floor - Laboredskies' blow finished the beast off.
But all is not over - Pageoranges has a broken elbow, hand and bruised throat and passes out. For a time it seems like we might have lost him, but the throat appears to heal and we summon a medic to take him to safety and look at his injuries.
This is the living history of Daggerbite, a Dwarven colony settled by The Buff Flags. The walls glitter with images of Giant Magpies. The Magpies are being eaten.
