Song of Blades and Heroes- Save the Town

Posted: July 23, 2013 in Song of Blades and Heroes

In the second scenario, Phoenix’s serpent society attempted to give chase to my fleeing mercenaries. Cedric the Mildly Useless proved fast on his feet and was able to drum up a few recruits from the town before the serpents arrived.

Cedric manged to recruit Brandy the Brave, a buxom swords woman, Theodric the Just, a mighty paladin and Eagle Eye Killian an elvish archer. These new worthies along with Cedric’s surviving comrades, Tarn the Savage and Baran the Blade, deployed among the buildings to prepare for the band of serpents

I did not plan on using Cedric much, hence his name, but with the tragic death of Captain Rothgar in the previous battle, Cedric became the leader of the band and promptly renamed the new company, Cedric’s Cavaliers. Despite the fact they had no mounted troops. Really his only good point was to provide the leadership bonus to Quality and Combat rolls.

When the serpents arrive, arrogantly strolling out into the open, Cedric orders his troops into the fray.

Things start out well and one of the serpent beasts (actually a scorpian thingy because I did not have a mounted lizard man) was killed.

Cedric proved even more useless when he was first knocked down and then killed by the leader of the serpent band. Once again, losing your leader in SBH is a bad bad thing. None of my troops routed off the board this time but several did leave the immediate area which let Phoenix really slap around the few who remained.

I had them on the ropes one minute and the next I was dog food. The entire war band was wiped out this time.
