Cor, we are speeding through this! Thanks for the fast orders once again. Remember that the Romans are still NPC, and anyone can take them if they want. Apologies once again if the photography is not up to scratch.
turn order rolls:
New Romans (NPC):1
The peasants continue to carry over the building materials for the strange contraption being assembled. On the battlements, though it is slightly hard to see, the peasant with the dynamite begins to walk CAREFULLY over to the stairs.
Now that all the materials are in place, the Mechanic finishes the device, which appears to be a kind of trebuchet. The Mechanic starts to laugh maniacally (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1P526n6wfP4).
The Peasant holding the big spear from the statue ascends the stairs to the keep's battlements.
The fancy peasant at the house realizes their incredible potential and dons the armor, becoming the majestic, magical and marvellousMOLLY HATCHET!!! They may still be a peasant, but now they are shinier at least.
To display her awesomeness, she performs a stellar back-flip down the stairs.
Meanwhile, the peasants at the trebuchet load it up with bricks and rubble.
with a combined skill roll of 13, spurred on by Pierre, the collective peasants anage to launch the deadly payload through the air...
...Where it crushes a Legionnaire (FIRST BLOOD) and disrupt another.
Somewhat eleganty, considering the lack of a right leg, Jaques leadps upon the parape tand begins to shriek the most vile slurs imaginable at the invaders.
Jaques: Look at those Diarrhea pumps waltzing through like they own the place, mon dieu! You're all just a bunch of lazy Hellenic ripoffs and your spontaneous hats look like pathetic excuses for cow pats. My, we eat pansies like you for tea time, you buttock bysters!
Two of the weaker willed Legionnaires immediately regret their life choices and spiral into depression, much to the annoyance of Wolfgang FEAT SUCCESS.
Down below, the axeman moves the horse underneath the parapet.
Satisfied with his work, Jaques leaps from the battlements...
...to land comfortably on the horse below.
The Sniper and the rifle dude combine fire upon the Zeppelin, managing to knock off 1 size point (4/5 left)
The Legionnaires continue the advance, Wolfgang following up behind them. The Legionnaire with the dynamite also manages to catch up.
Using only and purely kind words and persuasion, Wolfgang reinstates the loyalty within the doubtful Legionnaires, who grudgingly pick up their weapons, hats and rejoin the march; FEAT SUCCESS
Enraged, the gunner prepares to open fire upon the degenerates who dared to shoot at him, only for his rage to overpower the Gatling gun, making it jam (Critical fail).
The promises of glory ringing in his ears, the Mechanic and the cannon rocket across the battlefield, the Mechanic taking cover behind the gun when they arrive.
BUT WHAT'S THIS?!?
A black van appears to have parked itself in front of the moat of the Keep.
But who else could it be? Who else would have already discovered the newly revealed planets and plotted to capitalize upon them for illegal profit?
The Space mafia of course! Several mini figs emerge from inside the vehicle, their leader sucking on a pungent cigar.
Blue suit Soldier: Sooo Boss Marley... what was the plan again?
Boss Marley: Of courses you've forgotten already Luigi, what did I expect from a buffoon like you? Allow me to remind y'all gentlemen...
Boss Marley: Our order o' illegal goods went to the wrong planet, an' we found out that the order is in this 'ere castle thing in boxes...
Boss Marely: Crates and barrels and stuff. Da sooner we get this stuff in the van, da sooner we can get outta this dump.
