Yesterday was my first outnumbered victory, four bandits, and a dog. I saw the roadblock and decided to have a go (immediate savior schnapps) instead of just avoiding it. I tried numerous times coming at them (stealth at first) with my bow and then longsword. I died at least five times and then decided to go around and try from the other side of the roadway, approaching from a different direction. I used the same strategy but this time I had a clearer shot with my bow and killed one bandit immediately. The dog got to me first and I managed to take it down. Then I just worked very hard at keeping the other three in front of me while blocking and damaging. It was SO rewarding to be the last one standing!!! I actually was not too badly damaged either. This game can be so awesome at times!
