Champion. Some times it comes to be
that a battle can be decided without a bloody and life costly
battle against a equally numerous foe and so an Officer (Only a
Sergeant, Captain or Major can give this order) may decided to
send forth one of his men to answer the call of there foe. All
other Guardsmen should assume the Ready Arms order and be ready
to react to any treat that comes about during the duel.

at the health bar of [name] and make sure that blocking the way
to any foes, healing, and attacking anyone who attacks the
guarded person do not harm him.
Draw Bows! All guardsmen pull their
bows or crossbows. If they don't have any, shame on them!
Hold position! The guardsmen stay
within sight, keep close to one another and heal their fellows
if needed. Nobody flees, nobody pursues.
Spear [Target Name] All Guardsmen
attack the called target. This could be a description of a

of a known foe. If the officer doesn't mention a target, the
officer's target should be attacked.
