Idea!

Whoever comes up with the best trap (see post below) gets to read a chapter of the story? Assuming you'd want to, that is....

Alright, how about, Marion's being held ptrisoner locked up in the dungon on the wall in those old dfashioned shackles that are stuck on the wall.Robin gets news of her being held hears something about it worries for marion ( he's blinded by love. ) He rushes to Guy's castle goes to the dungoan(through a secret passage under the moat that he swims through) sees marion on the wall starts picking the lock on her chains and... Guy and his soldieras jump out! Grab Robin tie him up and Robin says something nasty to Guy who then orders him to be whipped Marion implores him for mercy Guy laughs and (of course) refuses to do so . After being whippped Guy puts Robin on the rack arion faints at the sight guy then leaves Robin on the rack and sets fire to his castle to attempt to kill his sworn enemy.
I know this is long but, I hope this helps.
good luck!
Autumn.

Okay, Guy could have a maiden wear Marion's dress, tie up the maiden and gag her with her back facing the opposite direction from where Robin will walk in.He, overwhelmed at his finding her, will let down his guard, walk around her and find that it's a trap. Then Guy or his henchmen will spring the trap by jumping out and capturing the hero of the green wood!

Some castle guard, pretending to rebel against the bad guys, tells Robin that Marian is in such and such room. He gives Robin specific instructions as to how to get there. Robin, ever wary, takes the opposite route (what the bad guys expected). He opens a door, and finds himself trapped in a medieval elevator. The medieval elevator is run by ropes and pulleys, but is well-lubricated and very quiet. He gets transported to the top turret, where Sir Guy is waiting for him. An epic duel commences. :D

"an epic duel commences"...

...to the epic soundtrack of Erich Wolfgang Korngold!

Okay, seen that movie too many times. >.>

What I was really going to say was that I liked that idea. It sounds likes it's going to be cliche, and then it isn't. Death to cliches!

Yes, I'm perfectly serious about that music coming into my head. "Sir Guy" and "duel" was all I needed.

So not especially specific, but could you work in a double booby trap, psychologically planned, as in rather than having it catch him right then and there, it's at a point where he thinks he's in the clear (possibly even with M. in tow), then *wham*, G's men all rise out of nowhere to catch him. So more of a physical trap? Oh, rather like in Kidnapped that we watched that one time, where all of the mountain men rose out of the brush and freaked 'em all out? Like that, only a double trap, as in the first contingency that were "after" RH (and possible M) weren't really trying to get him/them after all, merely steering him/them towards Guy's real capturing force. There- my $0.02.---P

Ok how about this.
Marion Robin little John and Will Scarlet. are all going to rob a group of monks and a few armedmen the grain they are carrying in large barrels.
The ambush goes great but then Marion who opens a barrel but finds one of Guys men in the barrel before she can cry out thre's a dagger at her throat then all the other men in the barrels(Guys men)
Jump out. Ribin begins to draw his sword but is telled to stop otherwise Marion will be killed. They surrender then when they get to Nottigham Little John and Will Scarelet are put in the dungeons and Marion and Robin are taken to Guy.
Not much but it might work.
Besides I had fun doing it!!!]
Love Vellvin.
