The Battle for the Old Alkerian capital: TURN TWO!!!

Postby Hiremas Alkerith » Fri Jun 16, 2017 6:14 am

This is my first forum battle so sorry if I make mistakes. Please note this probably will take a while to get going, and I won't be too quick with the photos, but I will do my best.
This battle is a historical battle before the alliance, and while most parts of the city had a decided outcome this one didn't, but either way DON'T SCREW IT UP!!! :wink:
I'll start by posting up the intro on the Aldebraanian side, then the Alkerians and then a view of the city. The battlefield won't be that big, since this will only be a smallish battle, but it will be of reasonable size (Already finished, but I'll probably make some minor changes before I take photographs).
LET THE SIGNUPS BEGIN!!!
Alkerians: Hiremas  Alkerith
"Imperial" army:Tasty Skippy
Aldebraan: Darkstorm
The "Technicians": Motorhead fan
The "Uruk Hai": Briklick
AND
The Secret Faction: NPC

<Security log entry 28776>{Location="Aldebraan-Capital"}

Spoiler: show
Aldebraan: Indistinct dark muttering

Image


Right hand: *Approaches* Errr... sir? The Alkerians have overrun another of our outposts.

Image


Right hand: With the help of the "Imperial" army they may drive us out of Alkeria all together.
Aldebraan: More indistinct muttering.
Right hand: Sir?

Image


Aldebraan: What is it?
Right hand: I was saying, that unless there's some kind of secret weapon that you've somehow kept hidden from your second command up until now that will defeat the Alkerians, then we're finished.  :roll:

Image

Image

Image

Aldebraan: I have devised a secret weapon which is powerful enough even to kill Alkerith himself!

Image


Right hand: Oh come on- Alkerith can't be permanently killed! He's a demigod, and a half wraith at that after you failed to kill him.
Aldebraan: He does have one weakness. Only one thing can truly kill him, the blade of the Braepa. I have found a way to synthesise it's radiation, and have created a missile from it. It is practically inert however, so much so that it needs a nuclear warhead as a detonator.
Right hand: ...

Image


Aldebraan: Multiple missiles have been constructed. However, I need a test subject to measure their effect. And I know just the place...
Right hand: And where is that my lord?
Aldebraan: The Old Capital of Alkeria. As far as I'm aware it is still densely populated, and it is the perfect distance away from our outposts. The missiles are still in their test phase and do not have enough range to bomb the new Capital, but they soon will. For now we will be realistic, and soon Alkerith will be CRUSHED!!!

Image


Right hand: Sounds good to me. When will it be ready to launch?

Image


Aldebraan: I have one ready to launch now! *Switches on communicator* FIRE!!!

PLAYBACK COMMENCING...
Spoiler: show
A3-08: Uh...sir? There's been an explosion in the old capital.
Hiremas  Alkerith: An EXPLOSION? What kind, chemical? Nuclear?
Image

A3-08: Uh... my readings tell me it's nuclear sir, but there's some other kind of radiation at the blast zone.

Image


Hiremas Alkerith: Just as well we evacuated most of the city before Aldebraan found out. How many stayed behind?

Image


A3-08: Only a few that refused to leave their homes. One to two hundred I think were the estimates. It was hard to tell since they wouldn't even open their doors and had a habit of throwing pottery out of their windows at the soldiers-
Hiremas Alkerith: Yes, I remember. Poor buggers, they didn't know what was coming. When will it be safe to enter the city?

Image


A3-08 It should be safe to enter the outskirts in....three weeks sir. It would take decades for Ground zero to become safe again. I'm surprised by how little uranium was in that bomb..
Hiremas  Alkerith:Sounds pretty suspicious. I'll contact Gree, and prepare to enter the city.

Gree: This is Commander W. Gree. Who the hell are you?
Hiremas Alkerith: *Crackly* It's me Gree, Alkerith. There's-

Image


Gree: Alkerith! How are you! Sorry about that, I'm a little busy at the moment...
Hiremas Alkerith: Gree, there's been an explosion. A BIG explosion, in the old capital.

Image


Gree: WHAT??? What kind of explosion?
Alkerith: Nuclear, but there was some kind of other radiation as well. I'll send you the details later. For now, we have three weeks to prepare before we investigate the outskirts of the city. I want to find out what happened there, and I fear Aldebraan might be planning an invasion.

Image


Gree: Alright, I'll prepare my men. Did the base there survive?
Hiremas Alkerith: The one we abandoned when we evacuated the city? Yes, it's still there as far as we're aware.
Gree: Great. I'll meet you there, in the meantime I'll send some other troops to investigate the other sec- HEY! Move that camera up! What the hell is wrong with you?

Image


Hiremas Alkerith: See you there. Hiremas  Alkerith out.
Gree: Gree out. Oh come on! I didn't mean THAT high!

<TRANSMISSION TERMINATED>

THREE WEEKS LATER....

<Status>="Moderate damage"
<Transmission commencing>
<VIDEO FAILED>
<AUDIO ONLINE>
This is Hiremas Alkerith reporting in. We've arrived at the base, Gree should be here within hours. Luckily he's coming in from the North West, as I can see movement towards the East. It's possible that Aldebraanian troops have arrived and set up camp. We've spread out some of the relics here in the buildings in case we are overrun. That way it will take them longer to find them, but I don't know how much difference that would make if we fail. There are only a few of us here, the rest spread out to explore the rest of the city. If there's trouble, I can always call for reinforcements. I'll keep this log updated while I'm here, Hiremas Alkerith OUT.
<Transmission Terminated>


Overwatch PHOTOGRAPHS
Spoiler: show
Took me long enough  :oops:
I'm sorry for the bad quality of the images, and the mess of the room they're photographed in. I got lucky with it, so I have a whole room full of my collection, but sadly it's also used as a storeroom, hence the mess. If things get changed around, (which they will) I will upload new photographs. PLEASE NOTE that the pilots will not be walking around but in their vehicles when the battle starts, and each faction also has different abilities. The factions and their enemies are as follows:
"TECHNICIANS" are allies with the Uruk Hai and Aldebraan, and the Uruk Hai, Aldebraan and the "Technicians are at war with the Alkerians and the "Imperial" army, who are both allied with each other.
NB: I should remind you that this battle is set BEFORE the fifth alliance, hence why the factions are fighting each other. Enjoy!


Image

A ground view from the Aldebraanian base. It is actually an "Imperial" portable base that was salvaged by Aldebraan and repurposed, which caused a great deal of confusion.

Image

Alkerith and Gree coming up with plans in the base's conference room, which is located in the medical bay.

Image

The main entrance of the Alkerian base, and where the "Imperial" units are currently stationed. NOTE: they will probably be deployed in a troop transporter during the battle.

Image

The inside of the Alkerian base, which is being used as a hangar for a troop transport and a V-20 Striker.

Image

The medical bay and conference room. Outside of it is a docking bay for small ships and speeders, which is often used to get wounded soldiers in and out of the medical bay.

Image

Another shot of the inside. The crates have a chance of containing loot (ie. relics) which are a secondary objective of the Aldebraanian, Technician and Uruk hai forces.
Opening the crates would be treated as a skill vs skill attack (Locks are 1d4)


Image

Image

The three houses also might or might not contain relics and booty, they are the red house, the white house and the yellow house.

Image

A crappy photograph of the "Technicians". The black portal is what the standard cannon fodder spawn out from.

Image

A seriously crappy photo of the back of the Uruk Hai and an Aldebraanian.

Image

The rest of the Aldebraanians, including the Dark Lord of Aldebraan himself, closely followed by the right hand.

Image

The Alkerian Viper tank, this one has been beaten up and rebuild almost beyond recognition. Just behind is is an "Imperial" chicken walker (Yes, I know)

Image

Another shot of the "Chicken" walker (I did at least rebuild the top bit, but that's hardly noticeable.  :cry:

Image

A Horrible Overwatch of most of the Alkerian/Imperial half of the battlefield

Image

And a horrible Overwatch of some of the Aldebraanian/Technician/Uruk Hai half of the battlefield.
Thank God that's over...


UPDATE:

Spoiler: show
Image
A shot of some Uruk-Hai operating a turret and using a bow.

Image
A (slightly) better photo of the rest of the Uruk-Hai troops. They're on the right hand side of the battlefield.

Image
The "technician" turret. These turrets are dropped from orbit and smash into the ground. It is now manned by one of the officers.

Image
Alkerian heavy, placed just outside of the base.

Image
All of the vehicles now have their pilots in them. NB: The V-20 is being used by the Alkerians. (After all, they did design it)

Image
With the pilots gone, there's plenty of room in the base to drag in corpses and fill with explosions...

Image
Another shot of the Uruk-Hai and the Aldebraanian armoured car. After this battle the poor thing will probably be scrapped and rebuilt, probably into something similar but better.

Image
Another photo of the "Technicians" and their portal. As cannon fodder, this is where they respawn.

Image
A shot of the AT-DP used by the Imperials, and an Alkerian hovertank.

Image
And another photograph of the Hovertank.

Image
An Overwatch of most of the Aldebraanian/Uruk-Hai/Technician side.

Image
And an equally blurry Overwatch of the Alkerian/Imperial side.

Phew!

If you wanted to be on the seriously dark side I'd go for Aldebraan. While the "technicians" are dark, Aldebraan himself is the physical embodiment of darkness. Up to you though, and feel free to change things around.  :warhead:

For some reason this reminded me of the video game Halo 3:ODST with all the transmissions.

Hey I remember ODST, you have a point there...
The idea is that the military which was not developed when the communications were set up have to use unreliable frequencies in order for completely secure communication. That means it cuts out, and it's crackly and you get all the techno garbage in the background.
Plus, it's fun to type all that out..

Signups are a little slow, (Not too bad though, but hey) so I thought I'd try to speed things up a little...
I'm going to control the Alkerians, makes sense so yeah.
If the secret faction doesn't get taken up within the next few days I'll NPC that.
That just leaves the technicians..
If they don't get taken up within a few days, players can feel free to control more than one faction!
Also, throughout the battle there will be some random cameos, that will speed things up a little and add some "spice" to the mix.
Good luck!

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.

INDEED THEY ARE!!!
I may as well take the Secret faction as NPC's, it makes sense that way...  :warhead:

ALL POSITIONS ARE NOW FILLED!!! SEND IN ORDERS!!!

I'll probably start the turns off by a first come first served basis, and then go from there.
