The next day is hot in Sherwood and someone has constantly been on watch for the men coming from Lincoln.

Its not after mid day that John's horn sounds through Sherwood and everyone starts towards the road from different ways to face these men.

Atton checks he has all his various blades on him, then sets off to approach the road. He's taking the direct route, going straight down the road to block it. It'll keep any of their attentions from focusing on whatever other angles the outlaws are approaching from, he hopes.

Atton hangs back a little behind Robin, watching the men closely and sizing them up.

Atton's hands go to his side, where he has his smaller swords - a katana and a wakizashi - sheathed together. He doesn't draw them yet, though.

Atton grins a little, as the other outlaws appear. It's a passably dramatic entrance. He approves.

Atton throws a grin in Will's direction, then focuses his attention on the men.

A couple of them are shuffling irritably, hands shifting about near swords and staffs.

"Does the whole tax exemption even apply t'you? You're not even from around here, most of you, right?"

Atton just laughs, a little.

"S'good t'see you're so confident."

Atton leans out of the way, drawing both swords and swinging the shorter one at Alf's hand.

A prearranged fistfight is, after all, totally different than someone trying to collect a bounty. Atton has no qualms about cheating with the latter.


At the group of men, five particularly large ones start heading for the outlaws, one each, drawing swords and lifting staffs as they go.

Atton dodges, jumping up and spinning, blades flashing around him (and at Alf's neck).

The other men seem to be taking an aggressive tactic. They block, quickly, before moving in with rather ferocious strings of attacks: It works better for some of them, the faster ones, who can move fast enough to make defending difficult. The others do less well.

Atton takes advantage of Alf's slightly lower position to knee up, aiming for his chin.

Atton dodges, a little too late on account of looking up and trying to see if it was someone he knows that fell.

He can't tell. The dust is too thick. He sees a couple of Alf's men through it, though they're both still fighting, grunting and roaring as they slash about wildly.

Atton ends up with a long, but shallow cut along his side, which snaps him back to the fight fairly quickly. He jumps, arcing over Alf and bringing one sword - the longer one, the katana - down towards him as he hits the ground.

Even as he moves, Atton is dropping low, swinging his wakizashi towards Alf's leg, at such an angle that Alf's momentum takes him towards the blade.

Out of the corner of his eye, he catches sight of most of the outlaws through the dust, which comes as a considerable relief. The fighters show no signs of letting up, though, except for one who's currently only able to defend and step back as he tries to hold off both Will and Little John.
