Ah the peasent levy. If you're gonna go down, the fort's gonna go down SHOOTING THE ATTACKERS IN THE FAEC.
That giant mongoose still hasn't moved... Contemplating on sending the champion out to draw it into an ambush. Oh goody gumdrops! Crundles! Like I don't have a good 50~ of those.
The battle begins!
Kulet, the speardorf who suffered motor nerve damage in his shield hand has a tear in his foot and has been knocked into the pond. I expect him to drown, as he's attampting to flee the field due to his injury. He has however managed to inhibit the beast's ability to fight by puncturing a lung with a counter strike, before ducking into the water to avoid a huge mongoosey talon.
Next comes Ingiz, who has put a hole in each of its limbs and downed the beast and sent it into a frothing rage! Two more dwarves appraoch, pilfered Iron spears at the ready! Will the Armored Roses claim victory?
Will Kulet drown? No he shall not! Dragged himself out and stabbed the thing in it's good leg. Only time shall tell!
EDIT: Devsem has fallen, and almost as soon as the fight ended, the beast's slayer (who delivered the fatal blow to it's heart from which it promptly bled out) bestowed upon her copper spear the name "Utir Enol," "The Loot of Grizzle." I like to see that as "The Grizzley Looter," as we get food and munitions from this thing's death. Oh and I didn't know this, but appearently she has a fractured skull.
Kulet is waiting to be rescued, partially because he passed out from his foot injury.
