I get out the sharps, and after watching a bit, if they don't do anything, I'll take a shot at the cover they are sheltering behind, not intending to kill, just to get a reaction out of them.

[OOC - how many rounds to I have for my different guns? Really not sure of how people interact in the wilderness in this day and age, so I hope I'm not being too paranoid. My only frame of reference is westerns, and in those its always bandits that follow you. I'm hoping if they are innocent, the shot might get them to run off. If I do anything completely off the charts for civilized person of the late 1800s, please let me know Smile]

[Adam]
15 to 20 minutes pass without in change, so you fire a shot into the woods.

[Both]
You both see the three men ride out of the wooded area heading down the road away from you on horseback...quickly. You can see them very long as the road makes a bend and you lose sight of them.

[ooc: Ammo? You mean you're not keeping track!! For shame! ....alright I'm kidding. I was just planning on letting you shoot until it gets to be very dramatic and then have you run out of ammo. I haven't decided. I really didn't want to bog us down with stuff like that. We'll just say that if you go an extended period with a lot of shooting and having been to a town to resupply in a while then we may save it for a critical failure... and have that be 'out of ammo'. ]

I mount back up, wait for Strange Owl, and then we continue on our way. I make sure we set watch when we make camp.

You both ride for about an hour when you notice the trail leading into a narrow ravine. The man is well hidden but Adam [thanks to Danger Sense] spots him in a place where he has a good shooting advantage over anyone in the ravine. Glancing behind you, you both notice that the three riders have returned. It would seem the whole plan was to ambush you in the ravine.

I warn Strange Owl to cover the guys behind us, slide from the horse and try to take cover, taking aim at the guy covering the ravine and firing as soon as I have a good shot on him. I'll use my winchester since its still to hand, and he's close.

[OOC - I'm assuming I put my sharps rifle back in the blanket after the men rode off earlier, if I still would have it out, then it is what I shoot with.]

[ooc: Yeah, I accidentally skipped ya. It's fixed above although you ended up missing. You could try a benny if you want.]


[Strange Owl]
You take a shot at the and hit. [target number: 6... you rolled a 6 which is an "Ace" on a d6... added roll of 5 for a total of 11. Which gives you one 'raise' (a raise for each 4 over target number) which adds an extra d6 damage per raise.] Robber 2 drops and appears to be incapacitated.


Round 5 Initiative:
1. Adam
2. Strange Owl
3. Robbers

Hoping I've got the guy ahead keeping his head down, I turn and take a shot at one of the guys behind us, using a round to aim if the shot looks difficult.
