Ravaging Times

chapter 277

[?]: Sir! Enemy in the woods ahead!
(“…across from us”)

[?]: Hurry! The enemy moves fast!
[?]: Team one stand guard, wait for command!

[Yue Jin]: Team two and three, formations!

chapter 277 The Presence of A Formidable Enemy

[Xun Yu]: Amazing. They entered one of our key areas so quickly.

[XY]: Yue Jin, test the enemy’s status!

[YJ]: Archers, left two up three, five hundred shots, one volley!
(archery terminology, I have no clue; maybe you can think “enemy at two o’clock” or something, but they don’t have watches back then)

[?]: Left two up three, five hundred, one round!

[?]: Fire!

{sfx: shoo~

{sfx: shoo~}

[?]: Whoa!

{sfx: cha~}

{sfx: cha~ cha~}

Wind blowing two degrees toward us. They have the location advantage!
(not sure about first part, two could be twenty degrees, or “two o’clock” angle or something)

[XY]: The enemy is at left one. Team two up, five hundred shots, two volleys!

[XY]: Left one up three, get ready!

{sfx: shoo~}

{sfx: shoo~}

Even faster this time!

{sfx: cha~ cha~}

This volley is faster. They have advanced.

[YJ]: Fifty steps back!

[YJ]: Team three, left one up two!

[?]: Get ready!

{sfx: shoo~}

{sfx: cha~ cha~}

[?]: Back up!

[YJ]: Enemy at left four also. Fifty steps forward!

[XY]: Wait. The enemy is plotting our movements.

[XY]: Having successfully entered the east side, they must know our deployment very well.
[YJ]: Advisor Xun, you mean…

[XY]: You were right. No one but me can lead this battle!

[XY]: Stop for now. Wait and see!

{sfx: shoo~}

[YJ]: That’s where we would have been! Like you said!

[XY]: There are two groups of enemy ahead. We can’t advance anymore. We must fight them in the woods.

[?]: Everyone into the woods!

[XY]: One,
[XY]: two,
[XY]: three!

[XY]: Here they come.
(“arrows come”)

[?]: Look, they fired again!

{sfx: shoo~}

[XY]: Done!

[XY]: Split up! Go through the woods to fight the enemy. Formations!

[XY]: Cavalry target their first battalion.

[XY]: Infantry target their second battalion.

This is my first battle in the campaign between the Cao and Yuan army.

Defeat is not an option.

My shidi are watching.
(shidi = male lowerclassman; here plural; I’m not sure if I should use “six” or “two” to indicate exactly how many he’s talking about; one reader suggests just referring to Third and Fourth, since they are in the Cao camp)

Master… is also watching!

[?]: Am… ambush!

[?]: Listen up!
(“hear (my) command, Yuan army”)

[?]: Team one, target their cavalry!

[?]: Team two, target their infantry!

[?]: Team three, target…

[Yuan Fang]: the enemy…

Shixiong… is also watching!
(shixiong = male upperclassman)

[YF]: leader.
{Yuan Fang}

{sfx: cha~}


the bond between Eight Geniuses
(“eight geniuses”)

{Gao Lan}

[YF]: Fire.

{sfx: shoo~}

is no more!
{flag reads: Cao}

[YF]: One down.
(“eliminated one first”)

Water Mirror retired on that day…
