Requiem for a German Swordsman: Gunnar Haas

In Saturday night's session, two of the PCs (Guy de Bourges and Father Signoret) along with a trusted companion retainer (Mel) attacked a guard room of 5 average pawn hired swords led by a Retainer 3 duelist. Guy is a skilled combatant and Father Signoret, the dueling Jesuit, is one of the best blades in Paris. The players were rolling about average while I rolled below average, sometimes far below average, so the combat was a pretty easy one. During the first melee they killed Gunnar Haas. After the second melee, there was only a single Pawn left standing. 

On the other hand, they waltzed right into the gas trap in the next room which left us with a nice serial style cliff hanger.
