The Zachary riflemen champion who was a fifteen year old Zachary Marksman fired his pistol as it hit a goblin in the head the goblin fell lifeless to the ground. A seven year old Zachary was violently hit with a short spear through the chest and two six year old Zachary's began to panic and fire with their heads down a eight year old Zachary soon followed. It was what the championed feared the goblin's were in close combat range. "Zachary's Equip bayonets" Shouted the Zachary Marksman many began Zachary's began to fumble with the bayonets and frantically trying to equip the blade. A goblin jumped over the dugout and had his spear pointed at the Marksman.
