[HH] Dungeon Battle

Postby Dienekes22 » Wed Nov 04, 2015 1:58 pm

Deep in the wilderness and far underground lies an ancient battleground, where man descended to defeat an undead menace as it prepared to unleash its evil storm on the surface.
Now, a small group of mercenaries has breached the cavern where the final struggle took place. In the wet and sunken rock they uncovered the ancient throne of the Skeleton King and the riches he kept around it.

Image

They stand around their camp and newly acquired stock of gold and treasure. They dug into the cavern in search of gold and now they prepare to load up what they have found and retreat out their entrance tunnel.

Image

A watchman stands near the ancient and only designed entrance to the room. He looks back to his companions nervously for he hears strange sounds coming from beyond the sealed door.

Image

The doors fly open from a magical burst of energy and religious fanatics pour into the breach. For God they intend to cleanse this aging tomb.

Image

An old coffin sits idly by, guarded by timeless statues.

Image

Suddenly it opens, revealing its true nature as a secret passageway. A bent and twisted guide peers out into the gloom.

Image

From inside the passage comes the glory hounds of the surface, Green Dragons to claim endless prestige.

Image

The battle begins.

Image

The watchman sprints away from the door toward his companions.

Image

Meanwhile, they group together and prepare to fight.

Image

The fanatics likewise sprint into the room, on fire to prove worthy of their warrior gods.

Image

The glory seekers advance as they can, slowed by the wet and slippery rock.

Image

And so the battle began with the shouts of men and stomping of boots.

Image

The mercenaries grouped together, soon to be pinned by two opposing forces.

Image

From one side comes the Red Lions, their legs churning fast. The lead man readies his javelin.

Image

The bolt strikes true, claiming the life of a mercenary.

Image

As his blood seeps onto the cold rock, a shriek echoes in the cavern.

"FINALLY!!!"

Image

The elegant statue shatters, the form of the ancient Skeleton King standing in its place.

Image

"This throne shall again be mine!" he cries, his voice bouncing off the chamber walls. Around him rise the long dead and decaying to once again serve their cruel master.

Image

The Dragons are undeterred and continue moving towards their foes.

Image
Image

And so did the most foul of foes enter the fray.

Image

The mercenaries rush towards the rear of the cavern, engaging Dragons as they flee.

Image

An experienced veteran slays his target.

Image

As does his companion, the youngest and least experienced in the ways of battle.

Image

With a shout the Lions engage the Skeleton King, but to no avail.

Image

The War Priest strikes a shadowy necromancer, throwing his weight behind his hammers.

Image

But he is tossed away by supernatural power and he receives a gruesome wound.

Image

A reanimate tries to attack a heavily armoured Knight

Image

But it is sent back to death with a powerful blow.

Image

Another reanimate meets his end in the same way.

Image

But another succeeds in his attack.

Image

The warrior throws off his helmet in pain and vomits blood as he slowly feels his mind slip away.

Image

The Skeleton King's Guard dispatches a distracted Lion.

Image

The War Priest is attacked by a reanimate, but his mental fortitude is so great that the reanimate's own head simply disintegrates. The necromancer fails to finish off the War Priest with a magical attack.

Image

Another Guard and skeletal archer likewise fail to harm any mercenaries.

Image

A skeletal warrior engages a Dragon, but neither is able to land a convincing blow.

Image

The Dragon Champion advances toward two stalemates.

Image
Image

And so the battle waged on, four factions struggling for dominance.

Image

Young mercenaries throw themselves into the fight.

Image

They claim the life of a Dragon warrior.

Image

The rest continue their own fruitless duels.

Image

The War Priest regains his composure and again rushes the necromancer, supernatural power augmenting his charge.

Image

He blows right through his foe, releasing his foe's evil spirit back to the abyss.

Image

The Knight attacks a skeletal warrior.

Image

The fallen skeleton's bones rejoin the dust from which they rose.

Image

A Lion lands a mighty blow on the Skeleton King, wounding him.

Image

But he loses his head for his small victory.

Image

The infected warrior rises, his spirit corrupted and dying.

Image

The Knight finds himself besieged by reanimates.

Image

He gifts his fallen companion with peace.

Image

But even he cannot hold on forever.

Image

A skeleton attacks the two young mercenaries.

Image

It's fallen form falls back to the rock and disturbs the dying embers of the campfire.

Image

The veteran finds himself fighting another foe.

Image

The undead warriors bring him down.

Image

The Skeleton King rushes to avenge his necromancer.

Image

But the War Priest counters him. Their combined blows throw them apart, though neither is hurt.

Image

The mercenary captain and the Dragon Knight grow increasingly frustrated as their fruitless fight drags on.

Image

The Dragon captain turns to strike the skeletal warrior that hunts him.

Image

With ease he breaks it apart.

Image
Image

And so did the battle wage on, bodies beginning to pile and blood soaking the dust.

Image

The young mercenaries come to help their captain.

Image

The Knight perishes amidst a score of blows from sword and spear.

Image

The captain, now free, destroys a skeletal warrior.

Image

The War Priest stands and shouts, issuing his challenge to the undead menace.

Image

He leaps toward the fallen form of the Skeleton King, ready to strike the fatal blow.

Image

But the Skeleton King's frailty was an illusion. He leaps to his feat and his club slams into the War Priest.

Image

The War Priest's shattered body hits the ground, coating the rock with blood.

Image

The undead advance, ready to finish the fight.

Image

A Guard engages the mercenary captain, but neither can gain an advantage.

Image

The skeleton archer hits his mark, slaying the young mercenary.

Image

The Dragon Champion swings his mighty sword again.

Image

The mercenary slumps to the ground in death.

Image
Image
Image

And so the battle began to decline, one force utterly destroyed and the others wasting away.

Image

The captain is wounded when his own strike fails.

Image

Behind him the undead menace advances.

Image

The Guards slay the captain with a flurry of blows.

Image

The Skeleton King brings down his hammer on the Champion, who can do nothing but close his eyes and prepare for the inevitable.

Image

His blood soaks the ground like all those before him.

Image
Image
Image
Image

And so the Skeleton King achieved victory again, free to sit on his throne and once more plan the destruction and corruption of the world.

Another solid one! Although I was a little underwhelmed how barren this supposed dungeon looked. Granted I was probably spoiled already after the Violence games from last year.

I would have liked to add some more scenery to the dungeon, but I was operating in a really small time window to get it all put together and had to scrimp on the battlefield a little bit.

I'm putting some stuff together that should bring things back to violence and scale of the Violence saga from last year, though.
