Ravaging Times

chapter 223

(I need to read this over, no time right now)

During that era, Lü Bu had a powerful troop under his command.

[scout]: Frontal assault by Gao Shun!

[Xiahou Dun]: The Ambusher Gao Shun… What an honor.

[?]: Moderate sized troop.

[XHD]: Archers, face forward!

chapter 223 The Charging Ambush

{flag reads: Xiahou}

{sfx: long~}

[?]: (enemy) Archers at the front!

[Gao Shun]: Xiahou you rascal!

[GS]: Witness the power of The Ambushers!

{shouting: kill~}

[captain]: Master Dun, we’re ready when you are!

[XHD]: They’re fast.

[XHD]: Redhares live up to their legend.

[captain]: Front line, get ready!
/* “up one”, throughout this volume Mr. Chen is using possibly modern archery terminology; they’re beyond me, and don’t make sense otherwise, so I’m going to interpret them graphically */

[captain]: Front line, get ready!

Fire~

{sfx: cha~ cha~}

{horse neigh}

{shouting: kill~}

[GS]: Faster, my brothers!

[captain]: Reload, hurry!
/* simplified */

Fire~

Impossible! Amazing!

/* “you are happy too early” */

[soldier]: Captain, look!

{sfx: long~}

[XHD]: What?

Horse…

Horse archers!

{sfx: long~}

[soldier]: Master Shun, we’re in position!
[GS]: Xiahou Dun,

[GS]: the ambush has just begun.

{flag reads: Xiahou}
[captain]: Enemy to the left, change heading now!

[Cao Xing]: Riders on this side, ready arrow, follow my lead!

Fire~

Beacons lighted – desperados fill the battlefield.
/* couplet-like verse, next line on last page of chapter 226 */
