East Enders Triple Tragedy Turn 1 Combat Round 5

Roxas Isla
City of Nefaria
Dark Arena
Emancipation Sand Dance
First Wave
Present Day

The East End Ants were determined to avenge their fallen comrades as the frenzied buzzing of the South End Ants alerted them that their numbers had dwindled drastically!

Ant 4 row 2 and Ant 3 row 2 were unable to strike the nimble acrobatics of Monk #8 and Ant 4 row 3 was also unsuccessful against Monk #7.

Ant 4 row 4 rose up on its hind appendages and struck the unfortunate Halfling Monk #6 with a lethal bite in the neck that not only pierced his jugular, but the momentum of the Giant Ant twisting sideways to the Dark Arena sands ripped his throat and life suddenly and unexpectedly!

Ant 3 row 5 managed two thirds damage dealing ability to the right thigh of Monk #5, but Ant 4 row 5 and Ant 5 row 5 were unable to deal any further damage!

Ant 1 row 5 and Ant 3 row 4 also failed in their attacks against Monk #3, but Ant 2 row 5 was able to inflict two thirds damage ability on his left wrist as he tried to elude his foes!

Ant 1 row 4 was unable to get close to Monk #2, but Ant 2 row 4 ripped his jugular in the same manner as the Halfling fell to the Dark Arena sands totally lifeless!

Ant 1 row 2 managed a minimal nip on the right hand of Monk #1 and Ant 2 row 2 totally missed the Halfling, but his evasive action brought him dangerously close to Ant 2 row 3 who repeated the feat of ripping and twisting the jugular until the Halfling was flung to the Dark Arena sands void of all life!

Ant 3 row 3 turned away from the lifeless form of the Halfling and moved swiftly against the previously unmolested Monk #4 and succeeded in inflicting a third of its damage dealing ability!

The Dark Arena Consortium was pleased with the response of the crowd as 3 of the condemned East Enders lay lifeless upon the Dark Arena sands!

Monk #8 retaliated against his two attackers as his Hand Axe dealt two thirds damage against Ant 4 row 2, while his Club administered half the damage dealing ability against Ant 3 row 2; however, the Halfling realized he was in dire danger!

Monk #7 fought for his life as his Hand Axe struck Ant 4 row 3 with almost full damage ability, but his Club only dealt the minimum damage against Ant 5 row 3, which left the Unconscious Giant Ant twitching with revitalizing life!

Monk #5 connected with his minimum damage dealing ability against Ant 3 row 5 with his Hand Axe and with two thirds the damage ability against Ant 4 row 5 with his Club!

His Hand Axe left his foe Unconscious and twitching, while his Club left his foe twitching with Grievous Wounds!

Monk #4 greeted the intrusive Ant 3 row 3 with almost the full force of his Hand Axe and Mortally Wounded Ant 3 row 5 with the full force of his Club! It would die during the next round of attacks!

Monk #3 only dealt a third damage ability with his Hand Axe against Ant 2 row 5, but succeeded in knocking Ant 1 row 5 Unconscious with Grievous Wounds with half the damage dealing ability of his Club!


The East End Halfling Monks are in dire danger of elimination due to this unexpected sudden turn of events!

West Enders Cleric in Jeopardy Turn 1 Combat Round 5

Roxas Isla
City of Nefaria
Dark Arena
Emancipation Sand Dance
First Wave
Present Day

All the stunned Ants were twitching more rapidly than the Ants that were knocked Unconscious, but the Clerics at each end of the line did not have the luxury of observing their return to active attack status.

Ants 1 row 2, 2 row 2, 1 row 3 and 2 row 3 rushed upon Cleric #1 simultaneously, but the Gnome Cleric was able to dodge and twist as they all missed their intended target.

Ant 2 row 3 somehow stumbled as it lunged forward to bite the Cleric and missed the Gnome entirely, but was off balance and bit itself, inflicting minor damage to its lower right front appendage!

Cleric #2 was not so fortunate as Ant 1 row 4 lunged and missed, but succeeded in herding the Gnome towards Ant 2 row 4 that bit him viciously on the upper left arm with two thirds damage dealing ability!

The Gnome lost consciousness as he slowly sank to the Dark Arena sands beneath him, but Ant 1 row 5 made no move to attempt to strike him as it merely stared blankly at his twitching form!

Ant 3 row 4 had no such reservation as it bit the twitching Gnome on his left shoulder, inflicting half its damage dealing ability, leaving the Gnome Cleric twitching with Grievous Wounds!

Cleric #3 easily dodged and evaded the attempted bites from Ants 2 row 5 and 3 row 5, while Cleric #7 at the other end of the line evaded three of his four attackers!

Ant 4 row 5, 5 row 5 and 4 row 4 were unable to strike their target, but Ant 5 row 4 succeeded in biting his right arm with two thirds damage dealing ability!

Cleric #8 managed to evade Ants 3 row 3, 4 row 3 and 5 row 3 as he positioned himself to strike back at his nearest weakest foe!

Meanwhile, the 7 Giant Ants that had been stunned previously were now revived with renewed vigor as they marched into positions to attack the unengaged Gnomes!

Ant 3 row 2 positioned itself between Clerics #3 and #4, Ant 4 row 2 stood in front of Cleric #4 and Ant 5 row 2 moved between Clerics #4 and #5.

Ant 1 row 1 moved to the top right diagonal of Cleric #4 and top left diagonal of Cleric #5, while Ant 2 row 1 moved directly in front of Cleric #5.

Ant 3 row 1 positioned itself between the top right diagonal of Cleric #5 and the top left diagonal of Cleric #6, while Ant 4 row 1 stood face to face in front of Cleric #6.

Now each Cleric was facing his own personal dangerous challenge without the hope of any immediate aid from any Gnome teammates!

Cleric #1 swung his Club with near maximum damage dealing force as he knocked Ant 1 row 3 Unconscious with Grievous Wounds, but it immediately began twitching!

Cleric #2 lay Unconscious with Grievous Wounds, but was twitching in the same manner as the fallen Giant Ants!

Cleric #3 attacked Ant 3 row 5 with a massive blow from his Club that Mortally Wounded his foe! It was beyond the twitching power to be restored to life and would die in three more rounds!

Cleric #7 only managed half damage with his Club, but it was enough to render Ant 4 row 4 Unconscious with Grievous Wounds! But in mere seconds it began twitching with renewed life as it was struggling to rise again!

Cleric #8 chose to smash Ant 3 row 3 with his Club, but his foe remained standing after absorbing the half damage dealing blow!

Cleric #4 swung his Club with the minimum damage dealing ability that glanced off the right appendage of Ant 4 row 2 as it stood in front of him mocking his efforts!

Cleric #5 connected with half damage dealing ability as his Club drove hard into the right side of Ant 2 row 1, knocking his foe Unconscious, but it immediately began twitching as were all the other Unconscious Ants!

Cleric # 6 fared a hair better against Ant 3 row 1 as his Club bashed its skull with enough force to knock it to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious with Grievous Wounds! Then it too began the unnerving twitching as if it were determined to rise to fight again!

Turn 1 Combat Round 6 South Enders

City of Nefaria
Dark Arena
Emancipation Sand Dance
First Wave
Present Day

The Fuzzy Wolverine was still obeying the command from Cunning fox to "Protect Bumble Brew!" as it sniffed the Dark Arena air to locate the closest threat to the Elf Wizard.

Its sense of smell keenly attuned to the odor of the living Ants, the Fuzzy Wolverine located the nearest twitching Ant 1 row 1 that posed a possible threat to his charge.

With a low growl the Fuzzy Wolverine ran without any further hesitation and with its claws and teeth viciously ripped the life from its foe before it could rise again to threaten Bumble Brew.

Bumble Brew shuddered and ran 15 feet to her right and raised her Staff of Power with a combination of trepidation and excitement.

For whatever the reason, she was only able to channel the minimum amount of damage in another blinding flash of electricity that travelled in a straight line 100 feet long and 5 feet wide.

Ants 1 row 4, 3 row 4, 3 row 5, E2 row 2 and E1 row 2 were struck suddenly, but did not seem to be fazed by the minimum damage.

ThunnGarr the Mighty was aware of the danger advancing towards Ariane from the small procession of East End Ants that had overcome their Halfling Monk targets.

However, Ant 4 row 4 stood in his way on his right side, making it impossible for the Giant Dwarf to move into a position where he could freely throw his weapon to go to the aid of Ariane the Paladin with his Dwarven Thrower Hammer.

Ignoring the threats of Ants 1 and 3 from row 4 at his top diagonal left and right, the Giant Dwarf slammed his Shield of Bashing into Ant 4 row 4, followed by a swift bash with his Dwarven Thrower War Hammer that left his foe Unconscious with Grievous Wounds, but twitching and struggling to rise again with a renewing life emanating from the Dark Arena Dome.

Sir Yder saw the twitching Ant in the sand at his feet, but for whatever reason he made a clumsy attack with his weapon that combined with his strength and his enchanted blade was enough to Mortally Wound Ant 2 Row 3 and keep his foe from rising up against him! [Dies on T2-R1]

Ullrich could see that the Lightning Bolt blast was not as effective as everyone had hoped it would be. Counting on Sir Yder to eliminate their nearby foe, the Ranger sprang into action as he moved ahead 10 feet to prevent Ant 1 row 4 from attacking ThunnGarr or anyone else ever again.

He had become attuned to the roar of the Dark Arena crowd and the rhythm of the Ants as they tried to bite their unwilling prey.

His Short Sword cut through the air as he spun a sand dance that would bring his Sylvan Long Sword slicing with its song of death for the aggressive foes.

The Ant sank to the sands with Mortal Wounds from the double assault that guaranteed it would be unable to rise again by the aid of the life reviving Dark Arena Dome.


Amberlyn shouted a warning to her companions that some of the Ants were marching towards the South End after eliminating some of the Monks!

Notching her bow with a confident prayer to The Light to guide her arrows against her foes, the young Knight imbedded her missile with near full force of damage dealing impact into the left side of Ant E1-R2 that was 20 feet away from Ariane!

She prayed her arrow would somehow distract the Ant when it came within striking distance of the young Paladin.

Shandra quickly moved 10 feet into an attack position at the left lower diagonal of Ant E2-R2 and unleashed a vicious slash with her Dagger, followed by a swift swing of her Club that hit full force on the head of her foe, leaving it shaken and on the brink of being subdued into unconsciousness!

Ariane made a quick decision to fight alongside Shandra as the young Paladin moved 10 feet straight ahead to double team against a single foe.

Fearing for her life, but channeling her fear into a focus that delivered the Killing Blow upon the head of Ant E2-R2, her Holy Avenger Long Sword eliminated yet another foe!

Cunning Fox made sure that Ant 4-R3 would be unable to rise again to threaten either the young Monk or young Paladin as his first Arrow hit with just enough force to Mortally Wound their common foe! [Dies on T2-R1]

Without hesitation the Native American Cleric let fly his second Arrow to further diminish the threat of the approaching Ant E1-R2 that was almost certain to target Ariane in the next few moments!

All Unconscious and Grievously Wounded Ants are now rising back to life to continue their attacks against the gladiators in the Dark Arena!

The Giant Ants have the Initiative to begin their moves on Turn 2 Round 1 as they have won the Initiative over the gladiators!

Amberlyn thundered out what she found out from the helmet, "They are sending in reinforcement from the other Ants. Unslinging her bow, she takes out an arrow to fire on the ants coming from before the Monks. She notched her arrow and fired. Trying to do as much damage as possible before they got to closer to on her companions.

"Light, see my arrows to their marks. We are few amongst many enemies though we have done nothing to deserve this usage.

Present Day

North Enders The Dark Arena crowd roars as the Giant Ants try to bite the Human Fighters, but miraculously all 11 Ants fail and miss their targets!

The Human Fighters fare much better as 3 of their foes are Mortally Wounded and 2 others lay Dead in the Dark Arena sands!


Ollie Gory fires 2 more Arrows and Slays yet another Giant Ant that was menacing the Human Fighters!


West Enders The Gnome Clerics are under siege from 19 Giant Ants as Clerics #1, #7 and #4 are bitten by their foes!

Two of the Giant Ants inflict damage upon themselves as one lunges and bites its own right front appendage, while the other stumbles and collides with Cleric #8 and inflicts damage on both the Cleric and its own body!

One Lone Ant W5-R1 rises up from the Dark Arena sands after twitching with Grievous Wounds, but the healing glow of the Dark Arena Dome has restored it back to life, so it heeds the call of its comrades and marches towards the South Enders to a position 20 feet away from Bumble Brew!

Meanwhile, the Gnome Clerics strike back with their Clubs and render 4 of their foes Unconscious with Grievous Wounds, but their fallen foes begin twitching in the Dark Arena sands as the reviving glow of the Dark Arena Dome begins to work its magic once again as it had done the previous Turn!


East Enders The 3 remaining Halfling Monks are under attack from a half dozen Giant Ants, while 5 more begin marching towards the Human Fighters!

Ant E4-R4 makes its third consecutive Kill as Monk #5 is bitten in the neck and then brought to the Dark Arena sands with a sickening snap of his arteries!

Monks #4 and #3 manage to elude their attackers and then exact a small measure of revenge as the combined might of their Hand Axes and Clubs are able to Slay 2 of the Giant Ants, reducing their number of attackers to 4 remaining foes!


South Enders ThunnGarr is under attack from Ants 1-R4, 3-R4 and 4-R4; however, the Giant Dwarf is able to block their bites with his Shield of Bashing!

Ant 3-R5 moves 5 feet to an attack position on the left side of Shandra, but the young Monk is well able to dodge the attack of this single foe!

Ant E1-R3 moves 15 feet to attack the right side of Ariane, but the combination of a weary Ant and a wary Paladin results in another miss!

Marching Ants E1-R4 marches 40 feet to a position at the top diagonal right of Ariane; E2-R3 marches 30 feet to a position directly in front of Shandra and Ant E1-R3 marches 50 feet to a position 15 feet northeast from Ariane.

Note from the Castle Keeper The Giant Ants marching from the East End towards the Human Fighters at the North End are already out of Long Bow range from any of the South Enders!

The Counter Attacks from the South Enders have already been configured and recorded on paper way before Abraxis made his post today; therefore, the results will be typed and posted ASAP and then you will have to make some decisions regarding further battle plans!

Present Day

The Fuzzy Wolverine sensed yet another threat against Bumble Brew coming from the West End and it let out a low growl as it sprang into action!

Running and then leaping onto the back of Ant W5-R1 it raked its claws and then bit deep into the back of the head of its newfound foe, Mortally Wounding the Giant Ant that had dared to threaten Bumble Brew! [Dies on T2-R4]

Bumble Brew shuddered at the ferocity of her guardian as she focused her Staff of Power to unleash yet another Lightning Bolt against the 4 remaining Ants in her line of fire!

She succeeded in unleashing three quarters of the damage dealing potential that she was able to focus with her novice Wizard skills, rendering Ants 1-R4 and 3-R4 Unconscious; drawing first blood damage against the invading Ant E2-R3; while knocking Ant E1-R4 Unconscious with Grievous Wounds!

ThunnGarr the Mighty was now free to focus his attack upon two other Ants, knowing that his teammates would dispatch the Unconscious Ants that had been attacking the Giant Dwarf without mercy!

His Shield of Bashing connected against the face of Ant 4-R4 with such power that the force of the single blow inflicted a Mortal Wound upon his adversary! [Dies on T2-R4]

Then he let his Dwarven Thrower Hammer fly straight and true against Ant 3-R5 that had just attacked from the left side of Shandra mere moments ago! This Ant fell Lifeless to the Dark Arena sands immediately as the Dwarven Thrower Hammer returned to its owner, ready to slay another foe when called upon to do so!

Adrenalin is pumping as the remaining South Enders are aware that the Dark Arena Dome is somehow enhancing their ability to fire an extra Arrow, just as their opponents had somehow been enhanced to receive new strength to rise up and fight again!
Sir Yder responded to that knowing, even though he quickly searched for a nearby Ant to cleave with his Long Sword, but he stood his ground and almost without realizing what he was doing, the Knight grabbed 2 Arrows and searched for a twitching Ant to put out of its misery!

He let his first Arrow fly against Ant 1-R4 and immediately followed with a second as he somehow knew that it would take 2 of his Arrows to Mortally Wound the twitching foe! [Dies on T2-R2]

Ullrich likewise grabbed 3 Arrows with the same knowing and let 2 shafts fly into the twitching Ant 3-R4 that had been attacking ThunnGarr!

The impact of both Arrows inflicted a Mortal Wound as the Ant fell to the Dark Arena sands without twitching! [Dies T2-R2]

Then the Ranger searched for another threat to one of his teammates and his instincts guided him to set his sights upon Ant E2-R3 that had moved in front of Shandra.

His aim was straight and true, but it would take more than his extra Arrow to eliminate this foe!

Amberlyn also knew to grab 2 Arrows under the unexplained enhancement of the Dark Arena Dome as she was guided by The Light to also target the Ant that Ullrich had shot as it was an obvious threat to Shandra!

Mortally Wounded, the Ant fell to the Dark Arena sands as the teamwork paid off brilliantly as The Light most assuredly knew it would do! [Dies on T2-R3]

Ariane was not fully aware of what was transpiring around her, because she focused all her might to make Ant E1-R2 pay for its arrogance in daring to attack her!

Her Holy Avenger Long Sword bit deep and true as her foe was Instantly Slain!

Cunning Fox sensed that he too had received the enhanced ability to fire 3 Arrows under the influence of the Dark Arena Dome as he withdrew 3 Arrows to come to the aid of Ariane!

His first Arrow did not inflict enough damage to eliminate Ant E1-R4 that had been knocked Unconscious with Grievous Wounds by the Lightning Bolt from the Staff of Power wielded by Bumble Brew!

Then turning his attention to Ant E1-R3 that had moved within 15 feet of the young Paladin, he let fly his remaining 2 Arrows and Mortally Wounded the threatening foe! [Dies on T2-R2]


Shandra was almost disgusted that the threatening Ants had been dispatched by her teammates before she could eliminate them by herself, but she knew that The Light had a purpose in coming to her aid in this manner!

Only one twitching Ant remained as the young Monk flung her Club 10 feet away into the maw of Ant E1-R4, Instantly Killing the twitching foe that had threatened to attack her Paladin companion mere moments ago!


Congratulations are fleeting as the South Enders suddenly realize that all of their attackers are now laying upon the Dark Arena sands either Dead or Dying!

There are currently NO Giant Ants marching in their direction!

The Ants attacking the North Enders are currently out of range of their Long Bows!

There are 2 Monks left alive battling 4 Ants at the East End of the Dark Arena!

There are 7 Gnome Clerics remaining in battle against 19 Ants at the West End and 4 of those 19 Ants are twitching in the Dark Arena sands under the glow of the Dark Arena Dome!

Note from the Castle Keeper None of you are in ANY Danger of losing any more hit points so there is NO Need to apply Healing to Any of the South Enders!

Good News!

Initiative for Turn 2 Round 2 is in favor of the Gladiators!

The West Enders and East Enders Need Your Help Immediately!

Present Day

ThunnGarr yells "Cover Me! When you see the Ants move, shoot them with your Arrows!"
The Giant Dwarf jogs 60 feet in a diagonal line to draw the attention of the West End Ants away from the two remaining Halfling Monks!

Bumble Brew says nothing because she doesn't want her voice drawing the attention of the Ants. Her confidence is bolstered by the presence of the Fuzzy Wolverine who continues to protect her and the inner assurance that her teammates can fire their Arrows straight and true to keep the Ants at bay while she positions herself to unleash a strategic Lightning Bolt against their foes that are menacing the Gnome Clerics.

Bumble Brew jogs 55 feet while the The Fuzzy Wolverine slowly stalks its way 50 feet to a position where it can attack whichever Ant poses the greatest threat against Bumble Brew.

Amberlyn selects 2 Arrows and notices Ant E5-R5 turning in the direction of ThunnGarr. She breathes a quick prayer to The Light as first one and then the other Arrow imbed themselves in the right side of the Ant, causing it to fall Unconscious to the Dark Arena sands, twitching with Grievous Wounds!

Ariane takes 2 Arrows and focuses on Ant E2-R4 as she sees it turn towards ThunnGarr. It stops momentarily as each Arrow finds its intended mark, then shifts its attention back towards ThunnGarr.

Shandra picks 3 Arrows and decides to follow Ariane's lead by targeting Ant E2-R4 to reduce the odds against ThunnGarr and the Monks.

Her first Arrow bites deeply into its target, causing the Ant to immediately fall to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious and twitching with Grievous Wounds!

She decides to target Ant E3-R4 with her other two Arrows to help Monk #3 and although her foe is far from approaching death, it loses half its vitality to the Arrows sticking in its right side!

Ullrich selects 3 Arrows to target the Ants directly in his diagonal line of fire. His first Arrow strikes deep and true against Ant W4-R2 in front of Cleric #4, followed by his second Arrow with less than half the effectiveness of the first, but his target falls to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious and twitching with Grievous Wounds!

As the Ant falls to the Dark Arena sands, Ullrich fires his third Arrow towards Ant W3-R2 that stands a bit further away in a direct diagonal line from the Ranger. Although it does less than half the damage, his foe momentarily draws its attention away from Cleric #4.

Sir Yder takes 2 Arrows and fires along a straight diagonal line at the two twitching Ants in his line of fire, mortally wounding Ant W2-R1 [Dies on T2-R3] with his first shot and killing Ant W5-R2 with his second Arrow!

Cunning Fox selects 3 Arrows to target Ant W5-R5 which has not suffered any loss of vitality and threatens Cleric #7.

Although his first Arrow only inflicts a quarter damage dealing impact, his second Arrow strikes with full impact and his third Arrow follows with three-quarters damage. His foe is at the door of Unconsciousness, but still active enough to strike back at the Cleric!

East End Monks Monk #3 attacks and the weary Monk manages to render his foe Unconscious; while Monk #4 moves 10 feet under his target to stay out of range of the Arrows fired by the South Enders.

He is able to reduce the vitality of his foe to less than half and the Ant misses its mark when it retaliates against him!

West End Clerics Clerics #3 and #6 render their targets Unconscious, twitching in the Dark Arena sands with Grievous Wounds!

Clerics #4 and #7 are bitten; while Cleric #1 is rendered Unconscious with Grievous Wounds, twitching in the Dark Arena sand in the same manner as the previously fallen Ants!

Death claims Cleric #3 instantly as his neck and jugular vein is snapped by a lone foe!

North End Fighters and Ollie Gory Ollie Gory fires two more Arrows that render another Giant Ant Unconscious with Grievous Wounds, twitching in the Dark Arena sands!

The Human Fighters also render 3 more Ants Unconscious with Grievous Wounds; while 2 others suffer Mortal Wounds! [Dies on T2-R3 and T2-R5]

The North End Ants retaliate with reinforcements moving up from the East End, but only two of the Fighters are bitten by their foes!


Initiative has been gained by the Gladiators for T2-R3 against the Giant Ants!

Present Day

Bumble Brew still had not quite gotten the hang of how to channel the full potential of her Staff of Power, but with a dozen Giant Ants in her line of fire even the bare minimum of destructive force by a Lightning Bolt was better than nothing in her attempt to aid the Clerics!

The Fuzzy Wolverine made its move as soon as Bumble Brew had fired the Lightning Bolt from her Staff of Power. Making a beeline for the Ant nearest Bumble Brew that was out of her line of fire, the Fuzzy Wolverine moved 15 feet to the left side of Ant W5-R3, viciously ripping its right side with his claws before sinking its teeth deep into his foe, inflicting Grievous Wounds as the Ant fell twitching to the Dark Arena sands!

Cunning Fox spent his 3 Arrows against Ant W4-R3 with moderate success and Sir Yder followed suit with his 2 Arrows at the same target, rendering his foe Unconscious with Grievous Wounds and twitching in the Dark Arena sands!

Ullrich also continues to aid the Clerics as he chooses 3 Arrows as he moves up 15 feet in a diagonal line to draw a bead on two Ants in his new line of fire.

His first Arrow renders Ant W4-R2 Unconscious with Grievous Wounds and as it lays twitching in the Dark Arena sands his second and third Arrows strike Ant W3-R2 with the same results!

Meanwhile, Amberlyn continues her crusade against the Ants threatening to eliminate the Monks.

Her first Arrow inflicts a Mortal Wound upon Ant E5-R5 [Dies on T2-R4] and her second Arrow does just enough damage to bring Ant E4-R4 to the brink of Unconsciousness!

ThunnGarr moves ahead another 10 feet, hurling his Dwarven Thrower War Hammer at the Ant that Amberlyn has weakened, resulting in a Mortal Wound that saves the Monk's life! [Dies on T2-R5]

Shandra spends two of her Arrows against Ant E2-R4, inflicting a Mortal Wound upon her foe! [Dies on T2-R4]

Her third Arrow finds its mark in the back of the Unconscious twitching Ant E3-R4, inflicting a Grievous Wound as the Ant continues its twitching!

Ariane grabs 2 Arrows, but it only takes one to inflict a Mortal Wound that finishes the twitching Ant that Shandra had spent her third Arrow upon! [Dies on T2-R4]

The South Enders have eliminated the remaining East End Ants and rescued the 2 surviving Monks!

West End The Gnome Clerics Mortally Wound 2 Ants [Both Die on T2-R6] as 2 others are left twitching on the Dark Arena sands with Grievous Wounds!

Another Ant is brought to the brink of Unconsciousness, but Cleric #1 Dies as he is swarmed and bitten to death by 4 Giant Ants!

North End Although the 2 Monks have been rescued, they do not hesitate as they each grab 3 Arrows and fire upon the Ants that left them for dead to march against the Fighters!

Monk #3 Kills his target and Monk #4 renders his target Unconscious with Grievous Wounds!

Ollie Gory Mortally Wounds another Ant [Dies on T2-R4] with his first Arrow and his second Arrow robs precious vitality from another that the Fighters finally Kill, while Eliminating 3 other Ants and Grievously Wounding another!

Only two Ants remain twitching in the Dark Arena sands, unable to attack the Fighters!

Initiative has once again been gained by the Gladiators for T2-R4 against the Giant Ants!

Castle Keepers Note In case you all missed the comment in the Xenophobia Q&A earlier today, the remaining Combat Rounds have already been configured and written down!

I will type and post them here as I have the time to do so!

There is No Need for anyone to post any further instructions [which should be done in the Q&A] but feel free to post any role play after the final results are posted here!
