Peering through the brush over the top of his shield, Ranar looses a crossbow bolt with a loud twang. The central horsemen notes the sound of the shot in time to look towards the woods, but not in time to avoid it. The bolt punches through his mail shirt, burying itself deeply in his chest.
Although the rider is obviously grievously wounded, he retains his seat. Bending low over his horse's neck, he urges his mount forwards and reaches back for the shield slung on its haunches. Meanwhile, the other two riders spread slightly to the flanks as they also ready their shields.
As they pass sixty yards, Thwip lets fly. Although his aim is severely hampered by his broken arm, the shot is miraculously on target. The bullet blasts through the horseman's armour, visibly sending blood spraying through the links on his back. Somehow, he still retains his seat.
But not for long; after another twenty yards, he slumps from the saddle and crashes to the ground. His horse continues onwards regardless.
Switching his focus to the leftmost target, Ranar snaps off a second shot. Without the benefit of careful aiming, this bolt flies far wide. Cursing, Ranar drops the bow and snatches for his axe.
Meanwhile, Thwip gets off a second shot at the right-hand horseman. Once more, he focuses through his pain to keep the rifle on target. However, his injury takes its toll on his aim; the shot finds the horse instead.
The horse bucks and rears as the bullet strikes home, but the rider controls it and continues to charge.
Green is shrubbery/canopy, brown is tree trunk
[Player cue: the human has reached the edge of the woods, but the two remaining horsemen are only a second behind. Ranar, you have your axe and shield ready; Sasha, they're currently about 15 yards away, but closing at 10yds/second; Thwip, you're reloaded; Hayu, time to step in]
