My forces were forced into an engagement I wasn't prepared for. Their cavalry had smashed into a flank while we were unprepared, before quickly withdrawing, forcing us to take time out to gather our wits and reform our forces. It was a disaster, in that time their archers got close enough to release volleys of crossbow bolts into our disarrayed ranks, which only further demolished our moral. When their infantry hit it looked like we had no hope, but still my brave soldiers fought on. The battle raged for near half an hour as men uncounted died, not for king and country, but for the hope of a warm bed and food in their bellies.

I had led this men here. I had been the one who dragged them from their pitiful - but safe - homes and into this warzone with promises of riches and glory. Now they were dying by the score every minute, their death screams echoing in my ears. I needed to think, how could I save them? To the south lay water, we could not cross that, but at least that flank was protected. The east had been the direction our foe had advanced from. To the north was a swamp, it was possible but dangerous to withdraw in that direction.

I considered West, but before I could give the order I noticed them...

Reinforcements. Our treacherous foe had brought up reinforcements! We were trapped in a pincer, a pincer made of steel and death. I could see the light gleaming off their armor and knew in my heart they were heavy cavalry. They would charge into our rear and decimate our forces in an instant, shattering our will to fight and leaving us easy pickings.

That meant I had only one choice. I was now regretting I had ever undertaken this campaign, but I had made this bed and now I must lay in it. There was only one option, head north to try and escape the trap, or die between the hammer and the anvil.

Any-way, to cut a long story short, I threw a 5 and a 4 which beat his 3 and a 2, ANOTHER double 6 followed by a double 4 and a double 5, and after he threw a 3 and a 2, I threw a 6 and a 3!

I'd assumed that was because I hadn't gotten to the really interesting bit.
