Desert 89

Ghom turned out to be just opposite that huge warrior with a longsword. He made up for the lack of skill with great physical strength, successfully parrying off lunges with his crowbar. On the other hand from me, Ilak retreated, brushing off with a crowbar from attacks of two warriors with javelins.
Spears, and in particular, javelins, are very insidious weapons. In the combat of a warrior with a sword and a warrior with a spear, both without shields, ceteris paribus, I would put ten to one on a warrior with a spear.

Good post!  The audio was fairly good too!  Well done.

Ghom turned out to be just [or you could say 'immediately opposite'] opposite that huge warrior with a longsword. He made up for the lack of skill with great physical strength, successfully parrying off lunges with his crowbar. On the other hand from side of me, Ilak retreated, brushing off attacks from two warriors with javelins with a crowbar with a crowbar from attacks of two warriors with javelins.

Spears, and in particular, javelins, are very insidious weapons. In the combat of a contest between a warrior with a sword and a warrior with a spear, both without shields, ceteris paribus, I would put ten to one on a warrior with a spear.

Hi Oleks, well done!

Ghom turned out to be just opposite that huge warrior with a longsword. He made up for the lack of skill with great physical strength, successfully parrying off (ward off) lunges with his crowbar. On the other hand from side of me, Ilak retreated, brushing off with a crowbar from attacks of from the two warriors with javelins.

Spears, and in particular, javelins, are very insidious weapons. In the combat of a contest between a warrior with a sword and a warrior with a spear, both without shields, ceteris paribus, I would put ten to one on a warrior with a spear.

Keep it up!
