- npc'd by me.
Crossbowmen advanced and rained down crossbow bolts, killing another tribesman in the front ranks.
The waterbinder tried to humidify the air around the enemy crossbowmen to the point they wouldn't be able to fire.
It failed and the crossbowmen's crossbows were disabled for a round instead! This lead to some angry reactions.
Lord Grahel succesfully told the crew at which angle to fire the mangonel.
Thus it hit, killing another phalanx warrior. Grahel's bow on the other hand was ineffective.
Jaiko tried to spear the remaining men simultaneously but failed, as a result missing his charge entirely.
The Elite Knights then came in and finished the job however.
This gave the rest of the cavalry the space to charge. They killed two dudes and knocked the rest of the squad over, disrupting them and breaking their cohesion.
Voytek angrily lined up a perfect shot, shooting one of the Elites in the face. His second attack clattered off the enemy's armour.
The ballistas repositioned and fired, missing the enemy cavalry.
The phalanx closed formation with the elite part of the army. Behind them their general chucked a lance into one of the dragons (-1 HP).
They moved the catapult as well as they could, but it quickly got stuck in the sand.Crimson Knights
(I messed up the turn order a little, but it was inconsequential)
Goeting ordered his men to charge. The knights had to go around the bend, the fire lancers could go straight at their enemies. The phalanx grimly extended their halberds...
... and stopped the charge! The horses were all killed, stopping the charge dead in its hooves.
"Reorganize!" the commander shouted as he and his men scrambled to their feet.
Summoning their fireswords, they attacked together...
... but the Bulls fought hard and killed one of the firelancers instead.
The ranged forses advanced, trying to get in range.
Goeting used his dark power to attract nearby creatures.
Wild jackals appeared, and they didn't look too friendly! (failed feat)White Dragon Knights
The dragons flew up, the damaged one surviving the berserkers' attack. They breathed fire on the Icons, but Icons are tough bastards.
The dragons then got the hell out of there.
Something was coming out of the ground!
It was the Earth Dragon, and his mere presence knocked men about as he climbed out of the sand, shaking the last bits off as he prepared to attack.
With an effective Earth Blast, he took out an engineer, while the rider failed to kill the berserker.
The general was knocked down and got trapped under the tail during this maneuver.
The mighty beast snapped at Marnix, barely missing him. Careful now, Marnix has a reputation as a Monster Slayer.
Unphased, he struck the beast on the head hard in response (-1 HP).
The dragon master wanted to blast the axe squad, but his attack spell fizzled before him.
Daerion threw an apple,
which his horse proceeded to chase after, leading him straight to his enemies.
"Um, I have pears too if you like. Oranges maybe?"
The fight went rather disastrous for the pikemen: they lost three of their number and took down only one halberdier as a result. They focused on the titan, but their damage equaled his armour.
Daerion quickly fled the scene and went around, cutting at the back of the titan's legs.
The huge warrior cried out in anger and fell down (-1 HP and -2" movement).Bull elite
Marnix sprinted underneath the Dragon, who followed his movements closely...
He dropped his mace and raised the Bull Flag, facing the beast with it.
The Earth Dragon would have none of that and bit it out of his hands, snapping the banner in two.
But it was all a diversion for the berserker to attack! He somehow missed his first strike, but the second one was true (-1 HP).
The Dragon retaliated, and the Berserker escaped the deadly jaws only narrowly.
The Icons focused their magic, filling the air with spiritual power...
... which surged through Marnix, twisting his features into that of a minotaur and causing a new flag to appear. Marnix now has the Banner Carrier and Ritual Magic abilities (one Icon failed, the rolls didn't merit more).
The bloodthirsty Elites, lacking one man who had been knocked over by the dragon, charged over dead man and horse alike to get at their opponents.
The initial clash killed two WDK's and 4 Bull Warriors. When the dragon knights retaliated using their saved action, the Elite somehow survived.
The still dazed axeman picked himself up and joined his buddy.
When the heavies got up, the dragon rider was the nearest target, and they ended his life with glee.
The last Elite Knights were struck down by an aimed volley.Golden Lions
Stanis summoned and aura of fear around him, causing nearby enemies to lose 1 armour point.
The cavalry then bore down on the Dragon swordsmen.
Two were slain.
Melisander fireballed a third.
The remaining halberdiers converged on the pikesquad (meanwhile joined by the Drakhirri) together with the musketeers. At this point the dragon mage had crit-succeeded in upping the squad's armour. It saved all but the Drakhirri.
Their counters killed two of the four remaining halberdiers.
Finally the Titan limped to his feet and heroically crushed the officer underneath his heel.Overviews
