First mission is to get to the old watch tower, crossing a river guarded by gnolls. I've put together a group of rangers including the survivors from the Blood Moon scenario. I will be playing the mission 'hard', so no changing out companions during the missions three scenarios.

Lots of homemade stuff with step-by-step blogs in the terrain page.
As part of the scenario, my rangers would have a better chance at killing the gnolls until the alarm was sounded. And this was the plan, with three archers, it should be possible to take down some enemy gnoll archers - and gang up on the close combat enemies.
Enemy gnolls guarding the bridge, two fighters lead by a sergeant. A gnoll archer can been seen near the river.
In the end my ranger tried taking the shot, she hit but failed to take down the enemy and the alarm was raised.
But after some hard fights, my very wounded heroes did manage to take control of the battle field.
Seb the Woodcutter turned out to only have small wound, a knock to the head had brought him down. Nothing he wasn't able to shake off with a bit of time.
Bertha the Woman-at-Arms got here arm crushed, she would no longer be as good a companion in the fight. Bandaged up, she would still have to fight, no time for rest. But should she survive the mission, she might have to return to guard duty in a sleepy village.
