Just as Queen Lara was preparing to attack the Falx lands, more and more reports of aggressive raiders who called themselves the Drakhirri were coming in. The Queen split the Roaming Knights from her army and they seemed to get the situation under control
, but mere days after Queen Lara departed more and larger groups of raiders started showing up.
Aware of how vulnerable the Kingdom was with so much of its armies gone, Knight-Marshal Cales, now governor of the former Empire (the Eastern borderlands of the Kingdom), gathered an army with the intention of putting an end to these raiders before their numbers became too great. The Bulls, though thinned out from years of war, were unwilling to appear weak in front of their former enemy, so they scraped together what remained of their forces and joined him on the battlefield when he called on them. The Drakhirri raiders evaded the joint force for the first few weeks, but now, on the edge of the Haunted Wilds, finally turned to fight.
The Drakhirri army is only a rearguard. From the looks of it, it seems they are intent on slowing down their enemies long enough so the rest of their army can escape rather than achieve total victory.
The right flank is held by an infantry squad led by a slayer and two dragon-mounted slayers.
Crossbowmen, a champion and chariots hold the center, while a group of infantry, a couple of halberdiers and two more slayers form up the left flank. They've taken up positions in the forest and hope to keep them.
They are faced directly with the Bull legion, where Marshal Marnix leads a phalanx formation that spans the entire line from the front, aided by his heavies and a general.
The Drakhirri hastily prepared some small obstacles, but it's nothing the Bulls can't handle, on the contrary.
On the right flank an elite squad, armed with firehammers, is also coming in.
The center has a catapult with two operators and the Bull banner perched atop it, flanked by crossbowmen. A minotaur has also recently joined the army.
On the right flank we also find the icons and a crazed shaman. These no longer worship the Bull God, but they have found the strength within themselves to retain control over their magic.
From the West Cales' troops are coming in. He's recently been expanding his forces greatly, stating that it is necessary now that Queen Lara has taken so many forces on a crusade. A river blocks half his forces' advance, but it's shallow enough to get across without help (it does take full movement to cross).
The right flank has a spear squad and a sword squad, both with an officer. There's also two Sakers with operators, a captain and Cales himself, proudly flying a new banner representing his army.
The bulk of the force is approaching North of the river. There's a ribault with an operator, three squads of Urban Guards (spears, swords, crossbows), two bodyguards and two elite knights.OverviewsFactions:
