Recap of Dreska and Darius' Dialogue

Dreska: ""Halt! Don't Move! Put MY chest down!" She turns to Darius: "Sir knight, I am willing to negotiate with you, particularly regarding the smithy I have recently acquired through conquest; a choice selection of weapons and equipment may be yours, but I do insist that your men DEsist from moving that chest at this present time!..."

Darius:  ""What?! These are our lands, as I recall it*, and we bear no responsibility for the injustices these smiths have done to you, deeds for which we would have put them to the sword ourself and arranged a just recompense for you had you brought this issue to our courts, but us dragon knights shall not be threatened or bought with what's already ours. Thus, put down your claim on our gold and lands, or prepare to die! I have my honour and my duty to my King to live up to."

Dreska: ""Very well Darius. You may have your petty riches now; but this argument is not over yet. We shall settle it on an even footing, with equal armies by our sides. Be prepared dragon."

Dreska, Paladin of Leoncor stands on the bridge, surveying the carnage of the field with pangs of regret for her men (dead), and for the merchandise she was never able to procure.  Certainly Leoncor--or at least more of my loyal men--would be willing to follow to to the field for this affront, she thinks.

Image

As Dreska is lost in thought and prepares to leave for her kingdom on foot, Darius gives a quick nod to his archers bearing the treasure chest.  They set down the burden and swiftly draw their bows...

...Death is swift.  Dreska will not leave the field of battle, two arrows notched in her back.

As the archers approach, they look quizzically to their captain.  "My lord, is this not a disgrace?  Will we not be spelling war for Lucien and the subjects of Wyvar?"  In answer to their questions, Darius leaps from his horse and procures one of the Barbarian javelins lying on the ground...

Image

"There; the princess' death is none of our doing.  When Leoncor comes to collect their dead, evidence will speak on behalf of the Hii'mboredagain.  And here, leave your bows in the hands of the dead Drakhirri..."

Sometime later....

Image

"Well done my good friend Darius!  You have recovered the treasure!  But I see your fellowship is somewhat thinned?  You did not encounter resistance did you?"

"Alas my lord Lucien!  As we attempted to cross the river, highwaymen from Ravenbane's ilk.  Soon after, we were also accosted by Barbarians from the South...and it is with great sadness that we must report that the princess of Leoncor has also been slain."

"Dreska?  Oh dear!  What was she doing in this part of Wyvar?"

"Employing the Smith's from what I can tell; the Barbarians were merciful neither to her nor the craftsmen..."

"I see...well we will have to dispatch envoys to Leoncor to bear the news and employ a new family of smiths to take up residence here.  But of that, later; let us return home..."

Ah-HAHAHAHA :twisted: Well that was quite honourless.

Don't worry, now the Dragon Knights can invade Leoncor while their armies are out fighting the barbarians ;)

This was a great fight Rev., one of the best I've played yet.

Good, I'm glad :D.  I hope most everyone else enjoyed it too!

No worries, Zahru, the death of the princess most certainly ensures another forum battle that should "hopefully" be bigger.  Though the next next one I do might be sci-fi...

Comments and suggestions on how the battle progressed are always welcome.

Also, I'll have to make a Dreska for myself, she was an awesome character to play as. How you did the shoulders Rev? Custom, or 3rd party pieces?

The Undead Horde approves. It's from a custom pieces shop. I forgot which one... which sucks because I needed some of those armours for the Falx, lol.

The shoulder pieces are indeed third-party.  I use the for Dragon Knights, Dreska just borrowed them :D

The website is www.brickforge.com and the item is "round pauldron"

And make sure you also get a neck brace, otherwise you won't be able to use them  :wink:

Anyway, this was a splendid ending to a great game. Looking forward to much more in the future!
