Archer  H

Historical background

The archer was a valued soldier in the medieval age and, when working with a team of archers, could change the outcome of a battle in a matter of minutes. Before gunpowder was widely used, the longbow and crossbow were among the most deadly weapons available to a medieval soldier.
Archery was an essential part of medieval warfare, where much of the fighting was done hand to hand. A trained archer could down a horse and kill several soldiers with just a few arrows. Even when greatly outnumbered, a group of highly trained archers could each fire around a dozen arrows a minute, with such speed and accuracy hundreds of men could be killed and injured within minutes.

How does it work?

You go to your Instructor and ask for a task. You can only have one active task at any moment.

If you are free to take a task the Instructor gives you an area name and a target. Go to that area, locate your target, and attack him. The usual combat routines will be replaced by a standard roll.

On success you kill the target, bonus gives you a gold drop. On failure the target escapes.
