Kurt swallows the orc with little resistance, and the private proves powerless once inside the gummy body.Keep your positions!
-yells the captain as he aims an arrow-Keep them at bay with your bows! The ice will slow them down!
The Hylian Guards follow his example and togheter they loose a disciplined volley. The elven warriors silently follow by quickly firing two arrows in sucession, each with a more simple, fluid bow style. Several of the orcs are wounded, and one more falls on the ice bleeding heavily from multiple shots.
The militia however simply grips their weapon, aparently still too shocked from the explosion, while the survivors in the burning battery simply run away with panicked looks on their faces.Bombards, fire at the incoming ship!
-orders the captain as he prepares another shot. The battery crews take aim and three explosion sounds echo trough the docks. Two are pretty lousy and scatter in the water, but one hits the pirate ship head on, releasing splinters of wood and smoke! The crews instantly start reloading the light bombards, preparing another set of shots.
The remaining pirates meanwhile seem to finally have caught a good footing on the ice, and one of them, with an arrow stuck in his shoulder, shoutsPress on mateys! Don't tell me you're afraid of some small pieces of wood? First loot to those who draw first blood!
With this words, he releases a warcry and his muscles bulge up, before he performs an extraordinary leap that carries him over the fire on the fortified battery right into the ice! Roaring, he relentessly advances trough the remaining ice and swings both his axes at Kurt! The first attack is too wild and bounces off, but the second manages to cut trough his soft body.
The other pirates follow his example, roaring and bulging up their muscles before suddenly jumping right to the docks, and then pressing on over Pha's ice. Once they get out of it, they prove incredibly fast as they quickly close in with the city defenders and the nearest party members. Once in melee, they swing their dual throwing axes with little on the way of finesse but plenty of raw power. A militia and Hylian Guard quickly go down.
Kurt ends up finding himself surrounded and violently hacked!
Jeremy manages to dodge the first blow at him, but the second axe coming at him violently hits his head, drawing out blood!
Kong finds an axe cuting right trough his armor's flank, but luckily his tick skin manages to stop the blow before it hits anything vital.
As you are engaged in the fighting, two more pirates come out from the hole in the ice, spiting out sea water.
In the horizon, the pirate ship now aproaches at a great speed. At this rate, you estimate you may have less than half a minute before it gets close enough to start directly unloading its cargo over Pha's ice. At least it didn't shoot anything at the docks this time. If that's because their artilley crew is sloppy, they don't want to risk to hit their allies, or they're trying to save on ammo, that's unknown.Situation
