The Celts have taken the field. The woods are a surprise...Cavalry searching for the shrine get a surprise..
I'm unaware of the location and have to hunt. The rest of the Celts attack the watch tower ...added interest of the two lonely romans trying to make the safety of the walls...they need to move fast! Clive wins if my cavalry dont relay the message of the altar stone or he wipes out the watch tower. I cant mobilise my legionaries until I hear from the cavalry about trouble ut mill. We have twisted the movement rules to allow for a 'speedy messenger'. If the cavalry bump the Druid stone...some one has to escape or we are doomed...
Technical difficulties have prevented picture upload But... We are now on turn 10! The story so far.. The watch tower is over run and there is hand to hand fighting in the vegtable patch! Its not looking good for the auxillieries. The Cavalry commander managed to deflect a head on chariot charge at the bridge and the legions are preparing for a column advance ...it seems the whole world has come to fight in the Ribble valley. However...chaos at the main gate has prevented a smooth exit and the Marine Guard commander is holding the bridge with a small detachment of archers and a scorpion. Enemy forces are reluctant to engage and are concentrating their efforts on the poor Auxillieries! Its not going well for Rome...but the story kind of makes sense.
Move 13... All a bit tense.. The watchtower remains hotly contested but in truth is a lost cause. The legions are breaking out over the bridge but being held by cavalry and chariots. A group of naked fanatics look like they are going to throw themselves at the advancing relief column!!!!!
Move...not quite sure! The Watch tower has fallen...only auxillieries lost The celts have evaporated from the river front and we know now where there sacred stone stands! Next time... we recapture the watch tower and set the engineers to build something suitably Roman in their excuse for a temple! If it was a fair report...I'd have to say we were humiliated!
