Chaos is 5
|Does La Gautier seek out Saint-Sauvan?||Likely||YES|
|Does the bravo locate the chevalier’s whereabouts?||Unsure||YES|
|Does La Gautier challenge Saint-Sauvan directly?||Unlikely||NO|
|Does he attempt to ambush the chevalier instead?||Likely||YES|
|Does he gather intelligence on Saint-Sauvan’s movements?||Unsure||EXCEPTIONAL YES|
So La Gautier asks around and learns where Saint-Sauvan stays and lies in wait for him; if a random encounter occurs on one of Saint-Sauvan’s forays, then there’s a chance it’s La Gautier.
Successful in his last foray to Le Tonneau de Vin, the chevalier decides to return again.
Encounter on the way to the tavern? Roll 6 – an encounter.
Chaos is 6.
|Is the random encounter with La Gautier?||Unlikely||YES|
|Resistance roll, Stealth v. Luck, 1D20||15||3||+ 1 for difference between Stealth and Luck||4|
|Surprise roll, 1D20||16||14||– 1 difference btw Luck and Stealth, + 11 resistance||24|
The first indication of La Gautier’s presence is his rapier flashing out of the shadows at Saint-Sauvan. Uh-oh . . .
|La Gautier lunges, 1D20||17||6||none||6|
|Wound location – target is head, 1D20, 1D20||1-2||13, 18||none||13|
|Serious wound damage, 1D6||na||2||+ 4 lunge base damage, – 1 padded doublet||5|
With nothing in hand, Saint-Sauvan does not get a reaction parry. La Gautier’s lunge strikes him on the side for five points of damage (12 – 5 = 7), because the attack causes more than four points of damage, Saint-Sauvan is stunned and loses an action in the next round.
La Gautier attacks with a slash and counters with a thrust as Saint-Sauvan as the chevalier draws his own sword in a desperate attempt to parry an anticipated thrust; because he’s stunned, Saint-Sauvan loses his opportunity to Duck, Sidestep, or Dodge as well.
|La Gautier slashes, 1D20||16||7||none||7|
|Saint-Sauvan parries a thrust, 1D20||13||10||+ 1 to parry rapier, + 2 expertise difference, + 3 parry on draw||16|
|Wound location – target is head, 1D20, 1D20||1-2||11, 16||none||3|
|Serious wound damage, 1D6||na||4||+ 2 slash base damage, – 1 padded doublet||5|
|La Gautier thrusts, 1D20||17||2||– 1 for counter||1|
|Saint-Sauvan parries a thrust, 1D20||13||9||+ 1 to parry rapier, + 2 expertise difference, + 3 parry on draw, – 3 guessing attack||12|
|Weapon breakage, 1D6||1||5||none||5|
La Gautier’s slash renders Saint-Sauvan’s right arm useless for 1-6 days, and does an additional five points of damage (7 – 5 = 2). Saint-Sauvan manages to parry the bravo’s thrust, and his rapier doesn’t break.
Saint-Sauvan is deep in it, now. He cannot use his cape or hat to parry with his off-hand, negating most of the advantage of his French style skill.
La Gautier attacks with a thrust and prepares to parry a thrust in return, while Saint-Sauvan thrusts and prepares to parry a thrust.
|La Gautier thrusts, 1D20||17||15||none||15|
|Saint-Sauvan parries a thrust, 1D20||13||8||+ 1 to parry rapier, + 2 expertise difference, – 3 parry guess||8|
|Weapon breakage, 1D6||1||3||none||3|
|Saint-Sauvan thrusts, 1D20||14||5||none||5|
|La Gautier parries a thrust, 1D20||15||11||+ 1 to parry rapier, – 3 guessing attack||9|
|Weapon breakage, 1D6||1-2||3||none||3|
Each parries the other’s attacks, and Saint-Sauvan almost catches a break – literally – nearly snapping La Gautier’s parrying dagger.
|Does the clash of swords attract attention?||Very likely||NO|
La Gautier attacks with a thrust and prepares to parry a thrust in return, while Saint-Sauvan slashes and prepares to parry a slash.
|La Gautier thrusts, 1D20||17||6||none||6|
|Saint-Sauvan parries a thrust, 1D20||13||15||+ 1 to parry rapier, + 2 expertise difference||18|
|Wound location – target is head, 1D20, 1D20||1-2||6, 11||none||6|
|Serious wound damage, 1D6||na||3||+ 2 thrust base damage, – 1 padded doublet||4|
With four points of damage from La Gautier’s attack (2 – 4 = – 2), Saint-Sauvan is killed.
