I decided to make an after action report of my Rhodok character.
This AAR uses freelancer.
Little johnny was never a real lucky kid in his life, with his family and friends being murdered before he was 14, and his status as a poor street urchin.
Chapter one:Joining up
Johnny's family had taken refuge in Grunwalder castle after escaping from the burning and looting of his village. Unfortunately the castle soon came under siege by a Swadian army of 3 thousand. With no hope of winning the siege his father sent him and his older brother out through the drainage ducts, unfortunately his father and mother were not small enough to get through. Johnny and his brother heard the screams and shrieks as they ran for their lives. Eventually they ended up at Veluca where they could see the smoke of what was once Grunwalder castle. Johnny was very angry and badly wanted to exact his revenge on that bastard Harlaus.
The next day after waking up and leaving the tavern he saw Count Kurnias in the town square. He was spouting something about King Harlaus in a drunkin rage. Johnny being the young naive boy he was immediately signed up for the army, without even taking the time to tell his own brother. Count Kurnias informed him of where they were headed and sent him to the armory to get equipped.
It was nighttime now and Johnny was still practicing with his new pitchfork. He couldn't seem to get the hang of it. Johnny wished he could've gotten the nice shiny sword that he saw when he was in the armory, but barely had enough money for the pitchfork. It was around this time that a young boy who couldn't have been but a year older than him came up and offered him a deal. "I'll give you lessons with that pitchfork if you give me lessons with that sword. I saw how good you were with the sword in the armory, you took off that practice dummy's head. And I want to learn how to be that good, My name is Bunduk by the way.
Johnny and Bunduk eventually learned to be friends. Bunduk introduced him to some new people including a couple other new younger recruits named Ivanhoe, Germaine ,and Adele. They were sitting by the fire laughing and joking, until an old scarred fellow came up to them and said "We're going to battle with a slightly larger force tomorrow, If any of you want to survive you'd better get some sleep. You're not going to hold off a Swadian charge whenever you can't keep your Eyes open, My name's Rand by the way.
Johnny had terrible nightmares, flashbacks of his parents deaths just a few days earlier. He woke to the sound of what seemed to be Drums. "Come on we're moving out now" said Bunduk. From what Johnny could tell people were in a rush. "Where are we going, and why are we in such a rush?" he asked Rand. "The Swadians marched through the night to catch us off guard, We've lost a lot of time."
When they finally got to the battle it seemed a bit eerie. They could hear the galloping of horses in the distance. Johnny was trembling with fear, trying to decide whether he should run or stay. From what he could see most of the newer recruits including his friends were too. When they finally saw horses come over the horizon they were surprised, They were Khergits. The crossbowman made short work of them, but something wasn't right.
After the last Khergit fell to the ground, screaming in pain from the bolt that had pierced his stomach, they questioned him asking who he was with, what he was doing there. "You're all going to die, hahahahaha" he exclaimed in a sickly manner with his dying breath.
