Fries and Chibi left you with Rothschild last night, without a word. There might have been looks, but you were busy at the time, so you didnt notice. Where did you and Rothschild end up? I assume youve had either no sleep or almost no sleep. An hour ago, Rothschild left to gather up Amys teams (he still calls them Amys teams) and I assume you went looking for Fries.
Fries father Erstwhile showed up sometime in the night, eleven hard-charging bikers with him, counting his other son, of course. You found them all at Chibis infirmary. There was actually a moment between Fries and Chibi when you mounted up, she kissed him on the cheek. Felt like a lady kissing a knight before he rode off to battle. Fries isnt talking to you, not shooting you angry looks, hes just more in tune with Chibi, spending time with his father and brother, the rest of the bikers are familiar to him as well, a couple cousins, old friends. Fries cleaned up pretty nice, by the way.
Of course, teary-eyed Chibi hugged you and even Manx. Manx pushed her off, but you saw Manx mist up a little even as she called Chibi a pussy. You knew Manx would be there with Keeler, insisting you ride with her. You did, right?
Half an hour ago, you met up with Wolf and the pack. Everyone has war paint on, theyre pretty charged up; except Sable, who is upset that Wolf ordered her to take up a sniping position rather than wade in with the rest of you. With so much going on, Wolf didnt get a moment alone with you. He just wished you luck as you rode off with Manx and Rothschild.
As planned, you split into two groups and rode down trails in the mountain to hit Harridans read force, hoping to take out the supply train, weapons depot and the pair of cannons that are being brought up. Wolf advised that it wont be easy, but at dawns first light, you should be able to hit and run without taking too much damage. The plan is to hit them hard and scatter, off into the woods, down the highway away from the hold, force them to give chase, lose them in the mountains. Then double back and head back to the hold.
Now youre riding down a steep slope on a skinny-ass deer trail, careening towards a beat-up pick-up truck thats sitting low on the ground, cannonballs in the bed, a trailer hitch dragging an ancient pre-Fall cannon. Youve got a few grenades, but the ride is anything but smooth and Manx is opting for speed over subtlety
Give me a roll+Cool.
On a 7-9, choose two of the options below to be true. On a 10, all three are true.
You pull off the grenade attack, blasting the cannon to slag
You and Manx suffer little Harm
Manx is able to ride back off into the woods and you arent pulled down by the men around the truck
All around you, Harridans men try to close ranks and react to the attacks from both sides. Your attack was covered by the early light, camouflaged by the spines of black trees about all burned by ash and there is a light smoke along the trail as well. It couldnt be a better set-up.
But with all the advantages in the world, your group is fighting a far superior force in size. Lets see a Seize by Force to destroy their ammo supply and supply train. This will eliminate their artillery (since Grekkor disabled the attack from the Armory Boys) and make a siege more difficult.
