The waterbinder cast a spell... what was he going to do in a desert?
Oh I see. The ground below the catapult became all muddy, making it nearly impossible to move it. If nothing was done, the catapult would soon sink into the sand.
As the wave of cavalry drew closer to the bull line, they were presented with a wall of muscle and steel.
But these knights were among the best Kerrat had to offer, and they annihilated the phalanx despite all odds.
The rest of the army advanced and those who could opened fire.
The Bulls defended with their shields, but one went down.Bull Main
"Show them it takes more than a bunch of steel-plastered jackanapes to frighten the Bulls!"
The army gave an approving roar, waving their weapons in defiance (+1 damage).
The crossbowmen let loose a volley into the ranks of the knights, who defended with their shields and survived unharmed.
"Again!" Voytek commanded urgently.
The second volley took the riders off guard, Voytek's bolt killing one of the Elite Knights.
The remaining siege weapons dealt a whopping 21 damage to the Earth Dragon (-2 SP)
The phalanx finally readjusted slightly, trying to get in line with the elite part of the army.White Dragon Knights
Part of the army braced for the coming Golden Lions attack.
The swordsmen, backed up by a mage knight, approached the Elite Axemen.
The dragons flew into combat, breathing fire ineffectively.
Their riders then steered them behind the lines however, and the banner carrier went down, while the berserker held off the dragon's claws.
The cavalry charged the heavies, moving to support the Drakhirri.
Two of them and a heavy died, but the heavy's squad was thrown down and disrupted.Bulls
Buffed by the Icons, the Elites moved forward and killed the remaining lancers.
The heavies, though no longer a squad, protected their flank.
The crossbowmen shot the fleeing horses for the lulz.
Marnix: "Sing! Rejoice! In battle we thrive!" (+1 armour to the Bulls)"We shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire!
With no fear in our hearts we march into the dragon's fire!
BULL! BULL! BULL!"Crimson Knights
They proceeded more cautiously than their allies.
"Noble Bull warriors, why fight us? Isn't a land to settle down in what you always wanted? I can give you all that, and more."
The Bulls seemed to find that amusing. Laughter spread through the ranks.
"If we want your land, we'll take it, tin man."
"So be it. Open fire!"
The mages flung their vicious spells, and one phalanx, unable to block magic with his shield, groaned and hit the ground.Golden Lions
"Forward! For the King!"
Stanis' managed to bring all his men into attack range, and though they fought hard, the foot soldiers were outclassed by the White Dragon Knights, who parried just enough of the damage to survive (save one) and slew three halberdiers in return.
The Titan then came in with a cleaving attack, but missed barely.Overviews
