All of the Imperials move up, closing in on the Frostbornian ranks. A pair of dragon calvarymen fly up to the ruins to get a better view of their enemy's positioning.
I think I messed up somewhere taking pictures, but at one point the hooded stranger and mage move up toward the main ruins, the mage stopping and preparing a spell while the hero moves up behind cover.
The dark knight moves up toward the mage, dimly aware of the hooded hero lying in wait. However, seeing the mage as the bigger threat for now, she hovers ahead and wills her dragon a response action in case the going got rough.
Meanwhile, the rest of the dragon cavalry loom toward the kannon emplacement. After a What-I-Say-Goes roll (Which we did a lot
during this battle) which determined the dragon's firebreath range, the mounts found that they could attack from further away than they -especially the kannon crew- anticipated.
The results were pretty deadly.
So deadly, that the second blast by the second dragon knocked over a guard and toasted the rifleman.
Speaking of deadly, this is what happened during one of our rolls of the turn.
So we decided to go along with it. Poor chap.
The mage focuses his powerful magical energy and tips his staff toward the dark knight and her stead. "I think it's time your dragon chills
," he said with a wicked grin.
Then the spell critfails and backfires, freezing the ice mage solid. Probably a result of his horrible pun.
The dark knight is not amused.
Performing a heroic feat, the hooded stranger leaps from his position toward the dark knight.
His foot successfully collides with the dark knight's visor with enough force to knock her off her stead.
And sending her crashing toward the ground, disrupted until her next turn.
The stranger lands in front of his warriors, looking all epic and inspiring and stuff.
Meanwhile at the kannon, the officer shouts profanities at the cavalrymen who had just charred half his crew, and in a fit of rage he heaves the cannon toward them and aims. He tries to fire it, but the cannon doesn't seem to be functioning right all of a sudden, causing the officer's obscene language toward the cavalry to strengthen.
Ignoring everything else, a guard drops his sword and picks this thing up for some reason.
