With a loud grunt and a strong swing Orcleous cut through the leather armor of the bandit like a hot knife through butter. The sharp edge of the silver sword glided through the air as the crimson liquid splattered the ground. Orcleous quickly raised his blade expecting another attack on the way, but for the moment the chaos had subsided. Order started to take shape around him as the defenders seemed to be moving into a defensive formation. About time thought Orcleous as he rushed to move back into the lines. Still he wondered what caused the bandits to pull back in time for them to form a defensive front. The swordsman was far to focus on his opponent at the time to notice.
"Hey over here Silver Sword", shouted a voice across the battlefield. Orcleous turned to see the spear man that aided him earlier. He had fallen back into the defensive position and waved Orcleous down. Orc moved to join him, but he was soon attacked by bandits. Another axemen rushed forward and swung his axe at Orcleous. The swordsmen quickly side stepped the blow and slashed clean through the man's expose rib cage. Without wasting another moment Orcleous ducked into the line of soldiers and moved his way to the back of the defensive front. A man standing out alone was as good as dead. He need to find a place in the wall or at least stand on standby in case the defense opened up.
As Orcleosu rushed in he found himself standing in front of a shamen who was a bit bent over. "Yo are you alright", asked Orcleous as he looked at the man. The mercenary was taking the moment to regain his breath and talking to this guy seemed a good momentary distraction.
"Man fighting here is completely different than fighting in the field", spoke Orcleous. "Every time I cut one down another quickly moves to take his place. I almost died like six times already out there."
