After that, he delivered several lundes on me. But then Omah arrived. Dodging attack of Omah, the warrior realized that he would have to deal with two foes at once. He threw away his javelin and grabbed his sword. However, two more enemies arrived in front of me, and I was distracted by them leaving this warrior to Omah.

Good job again, Oleks! Keep it up!

After that, he delivered several lunges on me (lunged at me several times?). But then, [comma needed] Omah arrived. Dodging the attack of Omah, the warrior realized that he would have to deal with two foes at once. He threw away his javelin and grabbed his sword. However, two more enemies arrived in front of me [no comma] and I was distracted by them, [comma needed] leaving this warrior to Omah.

Hi Ali! Thank you for your comment! I think, "lunged at me" will be correct.

Hi Oleks,

Again, your life is in grave danger! I cannot even begin to imagine what it must be like to fight a warrior on a battlefield and I guess I'll never know. I hope that you and Omah win both your battles though I fear (at least) one of you could be injured. I'll have to find out in the next extract which I am looking forward to.

With regards to your English, Aliakbar has done a good job of evaluating it.

I agree with his suggestion -> lunged at me several times (deliver several lunges on me is not grammatically correct)

After that, he delivered directed several lundes on lunges at me. But then Omah arrived. Dodging attack of Omah's attack, the warrior realized that he would have to deal with two foes at once. He threw away his javelin and grabbed his sword. However, two more enemies arrived in front of me, and I was distracted by them, leaving this warrior to Omah.  [I've added a comma after 'them'. 

Good audio this time!
