[HH] The Tomb of The Witch

Post by Archduke » Sun Oct 20, 2019 1:13 pm

Lord Gardener was by many, considered to be a wise and powerful king. Under his reign, power was consolidated, and trade was beginning to blossom once more on the island nation all of this changed when the old lord died...

Lord Gardener had two sons, Harold, the eldest, was wise soft-spoken and kind, he was adept at management, and led by example, not by fear. Everyone assumed the kingdom would go to him...

The younger son, Harcourt, his face marred by the scars of an illness he had survived in his youth, was fearful. He lived withing his brother's shadow, building a bitter resentment deep within his heart...

As their Father lay dying, Harold saw to maintaining the stability of the kingdom, ensuring a peaceful succession, while Harcourt tended to their bedridden father...

When the old Lord did finally pass, Harcourt was the first to hear the will - Lord Gardener had chosen to divide his kingdom between his two sons, bisecting it down the akor river...

As soon as the will was read, seeing that the capitol was within his domain, Harcourt began rounding up all of Harold's supporters and executing them, the elder Gardener brother only managing to escape with the help of one of his generals...

After this, Harold fled into the countryside, rallying his personal guards, as well as anyone else loyal to him, but having given much of the wealth of his estate in clarity, and with the royal treasury securely in his brother's hands, Harold's army was small, only one local lord volunteered to aid him, his good friend Sir Ouwald...

Harcourt immediately began amassing troops for war, fearing his brother would invade. As his kingdom had a population far exceeding that of Harold's, Harcourt was able to levy thousands of troops...

Harold, knowing this, has but one hope, he marches into his brother's territory, to the Tomb of The Witch...

Image
Lord Harold Gardener and his men form a shield wall at the entrance to the tomb, Harold stands defiantly in the front rank of the shield wall, leading his men by example...

Image
His brother, Lord Harcourt Gardener[/], surrounded by his guards, prepares to watch the battle from a safe distance away, His army far outnumbers that of his brother, it is only a matter of time before the shield wall is broken...

Image
But Harold has a desperate plan, he has summoned five witches from across the land, they will recite a spell to revive an ancient and powerful witch, named Zero, believed to have been killed and buried here, the witch was only placed into an eternal and ageless slumber...
Each turn, one of the witches will say her part of the spell, and once it is complete, Zero will rise...

SPECIAL RULES:

-Orders issued will be "shouted" by commanders on horseback, I will roll to determine how well the men around them listen
-This means that players will not have direct control over their troops.
-The Shield wall will not move, nor will any of the men in it, unless enemy troops have broken through.
-Harcourt and his surrounding guards will not advance unless the shield wall is broken
-Each turn, one of the witches will finish part of the spell, if a witch who has not participated in the spell yet is killed, Zero can no longer be summoned, if all witches are successfully able to complete the spell, Harold's forces will gain a new hero unit.
-Harold cannot die, however he can be injured. He will be healed if he is able to retreat to one of the characters behind the shield wall.

I wouldn't blame you for signing up for this battle, as I believe you're not in any other battle at the moment?
Don't forget to check out about Anno!!!
