As the arrows fell from the sky the warriors fled into the hills for cover. Behind the trees, they hid, waiting for the enemy. They were silent, they were invisible.

Stalkingly, the enemy approached. Silent, they crept into the forest. When from seemingly out of nowhere a sword fell upon an archers neck; severing his head from the rest of his body. His head rolled down the hill before stopping at the foot of his brother.
A yell ripped through the hills as a hundred swords fell. One after another arrows were shot into the bodies of warriors. While swords ripped the flesh off right down to the bone.
