Second vicarius attack did not succeed, perhaps the group is in the process to familiarize with Yesser's leadership to direct combats.

Re: Combat.
Showing exceptional balance, Ken continued to run along the bridge's railing approaching the next rider in line.  He flipped the bamboo fishing pole around in his hands.  A small surprised perch was launched into a high arch to land in the lap/saddle of one of the bandits.  With a quick twist of the wrist he reversed the swing attempting to slam the opposite end of the bamboo pole into the temple of the rider.

Move: closer to next rider, not sure what hex that would put me in.
Free: interact with one object (pull up fish with pole)
Attack: using both hands for versatile bo staff attack,
   20:15, Today: Yamano no Ken rolled 10 using 1d8+3.  damage.
   20:15, Today: Yamano no Ken rolled 22 using 1d20+5.  attack.

Re: Combat.
Yamano and Li-Lei, make a DC 7 Handle Animal check to calm the animal.
After that you must make an Acrobatics check DC 15 to keep fighting standing over the horsebacks. If you fail to keep the animals calmed and your Acrobatics roll is lower than 10 you fall prone to the ground below the horses. If you fail the Animal Handling check but get 10-14 acrobatics, you remain over the horse but you cannot move to other horsebacks until your next turn only if you get a 15 or more with another check.

Re: Combat.
After downing one of the riders, Ken was caught off guard when the rider's spooked mount knocked his feet out from under him with its head while he was perched precariously on the bridge's railing.  Ken twisted so as to fall under the horse rather than off and into the water.  He rolled around desperately, his arms and weapon held close to his chest in order to avoid being trampled.  He rolled right, he rolled left. To avoid getting a leg crushed he spread his legs wide and winced as a hoof crashed down awfully close to his tender bits.  As he rolled out from under the beast he tilted his head sharply to avoid the tip of a spear which clanged off the stone sending up sparks.  Ken was barely able to parry aside a second thrust from a different, which cut deeply into his side, glancing off a high rib instead of piercing through his heart.

Ken reached out with a free hand gripping the spear, just below the metal blade, and using the attacker's instincts to pull back his weapon to help regain his own footing.  He let go and immediately thrust his own pole staff up into his attacker's throat just below the jaw-line. Watching the man's eyes roll up into the back of his head, he knew it was a good hit.  He turned to face the second man.


Move: Stand from prone
20:04, Today: Yamano no Ken rolled 8 using 1d8+3.  blunt damage.
20:03, Today: Yamano no Ken rolled 24 using 1d20+5.  attack.

Re: Combat.
The battle seemed easy to the young wizard as it opened. Until when 2 of his allies attempted to grab the horses, failed, and took a tumble onto the hard wooden bridge. The riders did not hesitate but slashed down with their weapons drawing blood from all 3 of his companions.

With a sigh, Shido stops his frantic hand-waving in mid-air and lets his arms fall to his side. Time to get serious. Eyes fixed on the battle at hand, the young lad fishes out a bit of fine powdery sand from inside his robes. A single word of power on his lips, he lifts a hand to trace a complex arcane sigil and point at the riders.

OOC: Shido casts Sleep. Places the epi-center of the spell at N-O-18-19, at head level of the riders, hoping the spell would hit the riders but miss his allies who are prone.

11:10, Today: Shido Mitsunari rolled 21 using 5d8.  Sleep spell.

Great roleplaying Yamano but you did not wait until I announce the beginning of the third round I said Phase 3 was starting not Round 3. Next time I will be more specific "Phase 3 from Round 2 has started".

We will assume this happens a the beginning of the third round.
