finding a difficult path to evade them, but is tangled by a patch of twisted ivy.

Leo and Marin go flying over yet another obstacle, with the young warrior feeling the exhilaration of the hunt and the young woman doing her best just to hold on to her old friend.

Alelip and Caedmon continue to follow rives as best they can, gradually growing the gap to the six trailing gnolls.

Round 5 begins.

Caedmon is growing ever more confident in his colt, urges Midnight onwards and attempts to

clear a clump of hedges before him.

Rives continues to lean low over Strider's neck and

urges him towards Baden Falls. As the herd leader, the others would try and follow, even if most of the other horses were built for strength, not speed. Still, he didn't want to face the gnolls in the forest. And there were more men back in the watchtower....

"What a lovely day for a ride isnt it Marin?" leo smiles despite the circumstances, and has his horse

looking ahead to see if there are any gnolls to close the trap.

"Shut up and keep riding, Leo" Says Marin with a small smile, slapping lightly his torso without letting go of the hug.

"Although... I don't think I like riding much" she thinks.

Rives gooses Strider ever so slightly, and the magnificent stallion lengthens his stride into a near-run that quickly leaves the gnolls behind. Whiskey and Bear follow in the trail, with Alelip hugging his mount and muttering encouragement. Leo treats the whole effort like a fox chase, and his horse responds as though it had been riding steeplechase its entire life. Caedmon tries to keep up with the show but barely manages to clear a bristly hedge. Butch focuses on

blazing a separate trail to discourage the pursuit.

Just as the group is starting to pull away, another gnoll joins the chase from the side, only half as far away as his companions.

Round 6 begins.

"Corporal!" calls Marin seeing her superior pulling back and to the side, her eyes widening when she turns and sees the new gnoll

"Leo! Pull back. We can't leave the Corporal alone with all the gnolls!" she says to her friend, one hand clinging to him, while the other starts fumbling with the steath of her sword

Feeling slightly humbled by his failure to clear the hedge and slowed somewhat by the bristles of the hedge, Caedmon
