Cry of the Amazon, Act 1 - Turn 5 - Finished

Postby Zahru II » Sun Jun 28, 2015 7:00 am

Image

The Southwestern part of Northeros is cut off from most of the continent by large, impassable mountain ranges. This lush jungle basin is known as the Amazon Patch. It is said that a millennia ago, the elves have driven out all beastfolk from their ancestral homeland of the Evergreen Woods, and contained them here. A small sect of elves had sworn to act as both wardens and border guard: they became known as the Amazon Elves, and their task was coined the Eternal Vigil. To this day, Amazons had fulfilled their task diligently and without any aid from the outside world. However, grim visions have started to haunt the Elves' newly appointed Enchantress regarding the fate of the Amazon. As a precautionary action, Gawain Valeera, and Arya, one of the few newly enlisted elven druids were dispatched to visit and investigate if anything is truly amiss...

Image

Valeera: 'Here we are, at the gates to the basin. I wonder, where is everyone?'
Arya: 'Not only that, but the gates are open!'

Image

Valeera: 'Something's wrong. The amazon would never abandon their posts, let alone a crucial strategic location as this one!'
Arya: 'Perhaps if we wait, they will turn up and explain why they left in such a hu-'
Raspy voice beyond the gates: 'NOW!'

Image

*A sudden blast of fire hits one of the watchtowers, setting it ablaze and taking out the ranger who went up there scouting.*

Image

Throwing caution to the wind, Valeera and Arya rush through the gates into the jungle, where they find...

Image

Valeera: 'Beastmen! We have been ambushed!'

Image

Snapjaw: 'Hahaha, we didn't expect more to come and was about to sack this place. At least this will make things more fun! Rise up brethren! We will show these pointy-eared wretches the might of Solek!'

Arya - RedRover

Image

Arya attacks Snapjaw but fails to do damage.

Elves - mgb519

Image

Valeera uses the incantations learnt for the enchanted seed - after draining the croc soldier from its life force, the vines and weeds sprout into a makeshift treefolk! (movement: 5, skill: 1d6, armor: 1d6, 1 hp, attack: ur3, cc, 1d6+2)

Image

The treant attacks but fail to do damage. Phalanx takes down a warrior though!

Image

Ranger moves ahead and fires at the Hunter but misses.

The Chosen - lawmaster

Image

The Hunter fires back and lands a hit on the ranger (-1 hp).

Image

Warrior strikes down a phalanx.

Image

The Flamespewer lands in a critical with its last shot on Arya, who loses 2 hp.

Image

“Ah, you think plants are your ally? You merely adopted to them. I was born in them, molded by them. This transgression will not stand! SOLEK! ACCEPT THIS TRIBUTE AND GRANT ME YOUR STRENGTH!"

Snapjaw uses the recently cut down ranger as sacrifice.

Image

Unfortunately Solek does not favor such brazen claims and smites the commander, dealing 1 hp damage. (Critical failure)

Overwatch:

Image

Kills:
RedRover - 1
mgb519 - 3
lawmaster - 4

Send orders for turn 4!

Arya - RedRover

Image

Arya attempts to tangle Snapjaw in vines - unfortunately this backfires and she ends up immobilizing herself.

Elves - mgb519

Image

The treant and phalanx deal 1 hp damage to the warrior.

Image

Image

Image

Valeera rushes in and knocks Snapjaw face first into the nearest bush! Unfortunately all damage is soaked up by armor rolls.

The Chosen - lawmaster

Image

The hunter dismantles the treant, the warrior damages the phalanx.

Image

He is finished off by Snapjaw.

Arya - RedRover

Image

Arya successfully entangles the warrior, but fails to do enough damage.

Valeera - mgb519

Image

Valeera knocks Snapjaw on the flamespewer, dealing another hp of damage to him.

Time's up!

Final Overwatch

Image

Kills:
RedRover - 1
mgb519 - 3
lawmaster - 7

With a clear lead, lawmaster is the winner of the battle!

Epilogue:

Image

Snapjaw: "Hehehe... you're too late, elves!"

Image

From the surrounding foliage, reinforcements emerge!

Image

Valeera: 'This battle is lost - we need to retreat and report to the Enchantress! Something is horribly wrong here.'

Image

Image

Image

Valeera and Arya rush back, the reptilian warriors pursuing them. The druid uses the powers of nature to reinforce the gates and seal off the basin for the time being. The beasts pose a real threat that the elves will need to deal with before a full-scale invasion of the Evergreen Woods happen! Not to mention the mystery of the missing amazons remains unanswered... The only sure thing is that future conflict is inevitable.
