In an attempt to confuse his enemies Frederick Von B begins to recite the technicalities of his mana cannon Auf Deutsch
"Meinen Mana geht durch meinen Korper in diesen Kanonne und wirdet so dadurch ausgesendet wie einen Kugel..."
"The hell is he saying?"
"No idea, his German is too crappy!"
This time, the cannon proved deadly.
The fire mage tried to be useful...
He then ran.
Musketeers fired upon the Drakhirri and missed, while their mate charged...
... and speared the squire
Dead as a rock.
Infantry got amazing sprint rolls, but one guy who got a 2 slowed the squad down.
"Damn you Joe! That's what you get eating all those burgers!"
The remaining pistoleers placed the ladder to the wall, pistols blazing and nicking the fortifications.
Musketeers did better, taking down a crossbowman.
"Time to exterminate this vermin, boys."
The titan successfully pushed the mini-cata closer to the keep without destroying it.
Sargus then shuffled the ballistas closer as well, and even managed to fire one...
It caught a Drakhirri in the neck.
Yup, he's dead (why did I take this picture twice?).
Cales let his guard down trying to inspire his men, so one of the knights got a free shot at him. It glanced off his armour, only just.
He responded in kind, but the power behind his attack was feeble.
So was the bodyguard's strike, again...
Cassandra nearly killed him in turn.
Seeing the distress their commander was in, some guardsmen broke from the main group and charged a knight.
Despite a valiant defence, he was savaged.
Two swordsmen reached the walls and climbed the ladders.
The knight managed to hold them off, for now.
The ram hit the braced gate, but damage sucked, again.
The ram took a hit from a cannon.
The one on the other side smeared a grounded Bull.
Mages overkilled the invading swordsmen.
And then some falling damage. Yup, that's gotta hurt.
Brockram sent his horse into a wild leap...
He got extremely lucky (6 vs 1 heroic feat roll, 5 on the next roll) and crushed Syrchon beneath the hooves of his horse.
As he turned and moved to the side of the field, he maimed a Drakhirri's corpse for the lulz.
"No one messes with the First Marshal
Brockram then took a defensive position, wondering if anyone else was going to come after him.
The bodyguard was startled as Cassandra's body dissolved and seemed to turn to shadow. He heard a sound like that of a thousand bats as the shadows passed him by, but he felt nothing...
The shadows landed behind him.
"Damnit. I missed him. And it seems I left my armour behind too."
Cassandra, seriously peeved off now, hit the bodyguard on the head again, but again the damage equaled his armour.
Knights attacked, one missed, which meant the other had only a slim chance of breaking Cales' armour on his own...
So he failed, and Cales struck him down in kind.
- Zahru II
My dice keep hating Zahru. A 1 vs. 6 crit fail forced me to make his attempt to jump the keep make him smack himself into the wall and lose 1 HP.
Even so he still managed to swing the axe-on-a-chain however.
It caught the cannon and threw it over here. The aim was the other cannon but range rolls were, well, need I tell.
- Paco The Duck Ninja
The storm titan picked up the kettle of burning oil.
He quickly threw it before it would burn his hand, and it burned the ram, also setting the area in front of the gate on fire. The fire will have to be doused somehow, or the ram will be destroyed.
The titan then crumpled in the small space, and whatever he was trying didn't quite work out.
More tomorrow, if all goes well. And bravo to all of you for speedy ordahs
