Round 1

Turn 1: Magus Guild

After their initial surprise, the Magus Guild suddenly started working as a unit. They raised their staffs and moved into range of the advancing Bull East phalanx, the mages chanting as one. The guardsmen at the back started stepping backwards, seemingly to avoid having to fight the outnumbering West phalanx for as long as possible. The white mage took aim at an entirely different target on the slope above him. Queen Lara seemed to have a nasty plan with a halberd that was still there from the past battle, manipulating it to sail high into the air.

She sent the halberd whirling through the air, towards the Bull West. At the same moment the mages’ chanting suddenly stopped, and their attacks were loosed towards the advancing phalanx. The red mage’s combined attack was blocked, but only very barely. The blue mages’ combined effort tore up the phalanx in the back, and one elder did better than the other, taking down his target with almost exaggerated force.

Phalanx: “Aaagh!” (typical star wars scream)
Heavy: “Hold your ground men!”

The height advantage made things a bit more difficult for the white mage, but his clear skill was still more than enough to take down the crossbowmen before he could do anything. The powerful magic blast took off his head, not even granting him the chance to scream. A bolt flew from his crossbow, the projectile disappearing high into the air.

Despite the noise around her, Queen Lara maintained her concentration, determined to achieve whatever it was she was planning.

Image

To their own surprise, the halberd passed over the heads of the advancing phalanx. The driver shielded himself, thinking it was meant for him, when the large weapon swooped down to cut at the wheels of the sturdy wagon.

Heavy: “Watch out!”
Phalanx: “Shit!”

Image

A crack sounded as the halberd smashed into the wood. The phalanx lowered his shield, slightly confused at the intention of the halberd, but content it had failed to cut the wheels of his wagon.

Phalanx: “Lousy Magus swine…”

Image

Turn 2: Bull west

The sniper cleverly took aim at the white mage who had just killed his companion from behind a tree. He breathed out and loosed a reasonable shot, though he could have done better.

Image

White mage: “Not so fast!”

Sensing the threat, he spun around and caught the crossbow on a shield that appeared out of his staff, disintegrating the arrow, though it got near. The sniper cursed the mage silently.

Image

West leader: “Move! Up the slope! The rest of you, advance! Trample those weaklings into the dirt!”

The heavily armed leader’s authority was clear; the wagon started turning slowly as the crossbowmen atop it took aim. The phalanx and axmen followed behind their leader quickly to scale the ladder and claim the high ground.

Image

Leader: “Shoot them down!”

Image

Image

Crossbowmen 1: “Sure boss!”
Crossbowmen 2: “I can’t fuckin’ see them!”

The crossbowman in the back was just out of range despite his higher position, but one shot was sufficient to take down a red mage. He fell over with a grunt and a shaft sticking out of his back. The sudden death of his companion severely startled the other red mage.

Red mage: *gasp*

Turn 3: Bull East

Seeing two of his men smeared across the battlefield by the Magus Guild’s powerful magics, the East leader took a rash decision before his slow formation would fall prey to more enemy fire.

Leader: “Get back! I’ll handle this!”

The phalanx grumbled and started to retreat backwards and off to the sides, out of range and into cover, obedient, but frustrated that their chance to prove their power in battle was delayed once more.

Image

The leader moved closer to the frontline as his men backed away from the danger.

Heavy: “You! Up that slope! Give ‘em hell!”

Image

An axemen sped up the slope, towards the corpse of his fallen ally.

Image

Leader: “Someone shoot down that bastard in white already! I’m sick of him!"

Obeying the order, two crossbowmen hastily took aim at the white mage once more. Again, their higher position gave them an advantage and the necessary aim.

The white mage seemed indestructible. He once again summoned a shield and stopped the arrows coming for him, deflecting them away harmlessly.


Image

His axemen following closely behind him, the leader strode forward, presenting his shiny shield to the mages. The soldiers started shouting something repeatively in their foreign language. It sent chills down the spines of several of the Magus Guild, and a glow began to encompass the East’s position. Nothing else happened though, the influence of the shield on the battle not yet revealed.

“Come now, mages” the leader taunted. “The time for parlor tricks is truly over!”

Image

Image

Phew, tough work. 4 days for next orders.

I like your reporting style, it's almost cinematic. This will be a fun game to watch.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.
