In one of these encounters, young Lord Heddybottom, in command of 3 companies of infantry (one of them being "rangers") and 3 squadrons of light cavalry, had been tasked with scouting out possible trails into Maraconi. While scouting, he ran into a defending force of 3 companies of Grayrock infantry (1 being a "ranger" unit) a 2 squadrons of light cavalry.
- Rangers can move 2 spaces and still fight
- Light cavalry only battles with 2 dice
Lord Heddybottom led his force into the wilds of the Maraconian mountains. He came to an area of relatively level and open ground. Spreading out his troops, with the majority on his right, Heddybottom advanced. He soon received word that his flanking force had spotted the enemy.

At that moment, the remaining Grayrock cavalry charged the Bluderian rangers who had taken the hill. The rangers broke and fled. Seeing the victorious Grayrockian bearing toward them was too much for Heddybottom. He called for the retreat.
