Epilogue: Aftermath

The forces of evil gather triumphant back at the depths of Warhead's throne room.

Image

'First, let's get done with the obligatory: here's your reward, mortal lord. You fought well.'

'We Drakhirri deeply appreciate your generosity. Be sure to contact us in the future if you need some manpower.'

*sigh* 'Alright, alright, now off with thee!'

Image

'How's the device, Warlock?'

'Fully functional Warhead. The power is ours for the ta-

*SLASH!*

Image

'My... my staff! B-but why?'

'Just a necessary safety measure I had to take before you could do anything funny.'

Image

'Now... let's get this started.'

*sizzles and flashes*

*KA-BOOM!*

Image

'Warhead, you...'

'I FEEL PHENOMENAL!'

Image

'THE POWER OF THE MAJISTIK RESTORED ME TO MY FORMER GLORY, BEFORE I WAS BEATEN AND WEAKENED BY ZAHRU! AND I'M EVEN MIGHTIER!'

'And what are your plans now, Warhead. Where shall we strike?'

'WE? ONLY YOU. I HAVE NO MORE INTEREST IN THIS WRETCHED LAND. NO ONE CAN CHALLENGE ME. BUT QUIT BOOTLICKING, I KNOW YOU FEEL CHEATED. BUT I HAVE A GIFT FOR YOU.'

Image

'NOW I'LL GIVE YOU THE POWER TO CONTROL THE UNDEAD FORCES, AS THEY'LL NEED A COMMANDER.'

Image

'YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!'

Image

'PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER! NOW LISTEN: I AM LEAVING THIS PLANE, AS I STILL HAVE TO CARRY OUT MY ORIGINAL AGENDA. YOU WON'T GOVERN ALONE: ENTER, MY FINAL CREATION!'

Image

'EZRA VON BRAGSTEIN!'

'Why hello Warhead; it's good to be back... and in one piece.'

Image

'TO REPLACE YOUR STAFF, TAKE THE STAFF OF THE UNDERWORLD. I GUESS IT'S A WORTHY SUBSTITUTE.'

Image

'I SOWED THE SEEDS OF DESTRUCTION DURING MY REIGN, AND NOW THEY'RE RIPE AND READY TO BE HARVESTED. I SHALL RETURN EVENTUALLY; DON'T DARE TO FAIL ME.'

*flames extinguish as Warhead leaves the throne room*

Image

'I'm sure we'll get along well. You remind me of him in a way.'

Somewhere else...

*swooosh*

Image

'Ugh!'

'Ouch!'

'Phew... I guess we're lucky that the waystone of the enchantress activated.'

Image

'Were are we? Where's the fight?'

'In safety, I guess. If we compare it to the fact that we were facing the very death itself. I guess we must thank our elven ally for this.'

'It was nothing, Arthel Wolfsbane. Although...'

Image

... I am no elf.

*gasp*

(both)'APOLLYON!'

'But how? Fabio said you died...'

'I indeed did. But I was found by an elven scouting party. They were observing our fights from the beginning. Their enchantress cleansed my soul, and gave me a second chance. For that, I swore to protect her. A task I had failed...'


'Hate to ruin it lads, but I hear danger.'

Image

'At least we now know where we are. Deep in enemy territory. Unarmed. Swell.'

Back at the battlefield, Majisto regains consciousness and gazes over the death and destruction.

Image

'No... no... It's all my fault.'

Image

'Fair heroes had fallen today for the mistake of our kind. My brethren died because of our ignorance and vanity. I shall never forget you.'

Image

'But I shall never forget our errors and mistakes... damn the neutrality! Because of our carelessness, this world which we formed to a balanced harmony now faces a threat greater than ever! We who thought of ourselves as creators, pushed this land to the brink of destruction! I must return to the capitol, and aid the Empire to my dying breath!'

Thus Majisto leaves the battlefield, carrying Niol's runesword... and so ends the Coming Storm.

What an End! Ana at least Blaze is still alive. It's funny how close the Evil victors came to fighting each other... and how there's just Majisto and a few horses left on the field to.
Great work Zahru.

Nay. The graves of the Lords shall remain undesecrated by undead hands of the spells woven by Majisto's vow, fading nevermore into the legends of that day, the day the Storm descended.

This was epic, Zahru. Thanks for the battle. Worthy opponents all!

Zahru,

That was a blast to lurk. Wonderful game.  :D

Well, I would say that this Warhead has... matured. He's still weak having only part of Warheads Power and that will be true while any of the others live, but that can be fixed. He's only done what any Warhead would do, established a power base, expanded his influence and taken over.

What you want to ask is, what happens if a Warhead sphincter dies before another Warhead can kill him himself? Does it disperse or divide up between those Warheads that survive?..

Thanks the feedback guys, but never forget, the coming storm couldn't have been done without your eager participation! :)

I went all nostalgic and checked back when I began this story with Power Unlimited... 8 months ago... wow.  

But even now I'm brimming with ideas for the a new storyarc to continue the war-torn history of Medivo... expect it soon!

Music to all of our ears, i'm sure.  All of these have been a pleasure to follow and participate in!

Now i understand why you refused to give the elven hero a name!
Quest for the next story arc: redemption!

This was a great campaign Zahru! and i am really glad i could join in midways.
Among all the justified praise i have to criticize one thing though: almost all battles in this campaign were three-way battles which grew a bit stale towards the end. I'd enjoy some more variety in that respect. E.g. old fashioned face offs, objectives different from "save the artifact", perhaps some squad based battles concentrating even more on characters/special abilities, medieval microbattles a la microspace etc pp. Easier said than done... just saying.

True dat... I am thinking of other type of scenarios instead of 'big armies meet on generic plains - fight'. I tried to spice it up though with 'separate' maps (power play, power of destruction, power up north), and you're right: even I got a bit bored at the end of the whole find the artefact shenanigans , but that was the whole point of the battles.

However you gave me a very good idea with the microbattles... I always wanted to do naval combat but low on resources for big ships... microsails anyone?  :D
