Then, leaping from the Awesomeosaurus' back, he aims at his target...

Killing them both...
The bodyguard climbs up to regain control of the rampaging beast.
Lucian leads the rest of his army across the ford, followed by Marruk.
Fabian raises the twin banners of the Eye and the Wings. Somewhere behind them Zahru, Duncan and the Ranger Captain make a tactical retreat.
"Ah, Fabian, I trust you bring news from Warhead's force. How did the battle go?"
"My Lord, our army was met by a strong force on the plains, and suffered losses. However, before our withdrawal, almost the entire of the enemy force was slain."
"It will intrest you to know, Ork, that Urack fell in battle and for now you comand the remaining Orkz in our army."
"I am only Urack's third Captain-"
"It would also appear that a force of Dwarves stormed the northern road. The force we placed there was destroyed, and Urack's Second Captain with it."
"Then, that would make me Ork Warboss..."
"I trust Warhead will have resumed this campain?"
"My Lord, his army has begun it's advance on Merdos once more. They will not stand again."
"... the fall of the Lions..."
"... Leaderless... with few men... They will not stand... They will die..."
"What is left of my force will remain to guard the Fords. The rest of you..."
"Come. We must join Warhead's army."
"This is a disastor! With the ford gone, no ships can unload men to aid Merdos!"
"What are your orders, Sir?"
"Head to any of the other forts. They must pull back on Merdos or they'll be bypassed, their part of the defense is over."
"At Once Sir!"
"And you stranger... I can't order you, but I need Someone to warn Merdos of these events. And it will take someone like you to reach it ahead of the horde."
"I will. I am interessed to know more about this evil... But tell me were will you go?"
"I ride for Pembridge. I must report these events. We will send aid, but I fear it will come to late..."
"So far, nothing can stand against this horde..."
To Be Continued...
The wait was worth it... Probably...
