The Heroes of the Water Margin are massing and the local population are rushing to their banner.
The Sung Government send a military force to break up the gathering, a chance for scores to be settled. Kao Chiu was looking to defeat Lin Chung who is bound to be at the centre of the trouble, while his Temple Guard were itching to take on the Palace Guard who had taken the side of the rebels.
In a close and bloody affair - Kao Chiu's forces had the numbers but Lin Chung's troops had stealth on their side.
The massed ranks of the government forces advance up the table, but still the bulk of the rebels did not show themselves.
Only the Palace Guard were on show defending the Temple.
