[HH] The Battle for Emeraldville

Postby Zupponn » Sun Nov 02, 2014 4:04 pm

Somewhere, in a forgotten corner of Medivo...

Image
Mayor: "Yes, what a fine specimen indeed..."
Mayor's Wife: "Dear, dinner is almost ready."

Image
Mayor: "Well, when it's done, you can let the miners know that they can be done for the day."

Image
Mayor: "And where is our lovely daughter Red?"
Mayor's Wife: "She stopped by Sheriff Flannigan's house to look at his flowers again."
Mayor: "That useless Sheriff... Don't even get me started on him.  He's probably just sleeping the day away again."

Image
Welcome to Emeraldville, small mining town, but leader in exports of Emeralds in the region.

Image
Of course, we wouldn't be looking into the goings on of the town without something terrible on the horizon.  Some Brikthulhu Cultists arrive.  The Grand Inquisitor has picked this town out for sacrifice to summon their master.

Image
Luckily, the local Order of the Hammer arrives.  They were tipped off about the Cult's actions and are moving to stop them.  The Order is led by Brother Bernard who wields the mighty hammer Abashen.  

Image
But there's always something that complicates matters.  Some Pirates have heard about the wealth of this small town and plan to loot it for themselves.  Captain Nazt always has a nose for good treasure.

Image
Beginning Overwatch.
Turn order: Cult, Civilians, Pirates, Order

Image
The Cult moves their swordsmen and crossbowmen up.  The crossbowmen pick off a miner.

Image
The rest of the Cult moves up as well.

Image
One miner takes cover behind the rocks, while the other knocks on the Sheriff's door.
Miner: "Sheriff!  Are you in there?  The town is under attack!"
(For the civilians, I would roll a d6 each turn.  On a 4-6, they would preform actions normally.  On a 1-3, I would roll a scatter die and they would panic and move in that direction.)

Image
Sheriff Flannigan: "Zzzzzz..."
Miner: "Sheriff!!!"

Image
Sheriff Flannigan: "Hm, what?  Who needs the talents of the great Sheriff Flannigan?"
Miner: "Sheriff, the town is under attack!"
Sheriff Flannigan: "Well, it seems like this is a job for..."

Image
Sheriff Flannigan: "...the Mighty Sheriff Flannigan!"
Red: "Yay!"

Image
Billy starts panicking.

Image
Mayor's Wife: "There seems to be something going on outside.  Do you think we should get out of here?"
Cook: "But what about dinner?"
Mayor: "Yes, dinner first, then escape second."

Image
Captain Nazt: "Land ho, mateys!  It's time to rustle up some treasure!"

Image
This guy leaps off of the boat and impales himself on his own sword.

Image
Two-Pistoled Pete guns down a cultist.

Image
The rest of the Pirates get off of the boat and the ones with guns fire on the hiding miner.  They all miss and the one with the rifle drops his weapon.

Image
Captain Nazt: "Yarrr!"
He guns down that miner.

Image
The Order moves forward.

Image
The Cult's witches move up and begin casting a spell.
Two-Pistoled Pete: "What the..."

Image
Two-Pistoled Pete: "Aieeeee!"

Image
He is turned into an Eldritch Abomination.  The cult needs 5 of these little creatures to start their ritual.

Image
The crossbowmen move up and fire on Captain Nazt, but fail to hit him.

Image
The rest of the cult moves forward.

Image
Both the last miner and Red start panicking.

Image
Sheriff Flannigan: "Now for my special sword throwing technique."

Image
Sheriff Flannigan: "Oops..."

Image
Billy calms down and enters the Mayor's House.
Billy: "Mayor!  The town is under attack by both Pirates and the Cult of Brikthulhu!"

Image
Mayor: "Well, then I've changed my mind.  We can have dinner later.  Let's get the hell out of here!"

Image
The Order moves up again.

Image
The monkey and a pirate headshot a crossbowman.

Image
Two Pirates brutally kill Sheriff Flannigan.

Image
One Pirate runs toward the Cultists, while another pick up his rifle.

Image
Captain Nazt: "Haha! Treasure!  Look at my manly strength as I pick it up with only one hand!"

Image
Captain Nazt: "And watch as I toss it behind me with ease!"

Image
Captain Nazt: "Right into my ship!"
Red: "Impressive!"

Image
The Witches begin a spell again.

Image
Pirate: "Blarglngl"

Image
They must have messed the spell up because no Abomination this time.

Image
The Bat Man moves up and begins casting a spell.

Image
The Pirate explodes!

Image
It seems that the spell was successful.

Image
The Crossbowmen take out the Monkey.

Image
The Grad Inquisitor finally gets into the action and cuts a Pirate in half with his Ceremonial Knife.

Image
That makes 3 Eldritch Abominations.

Image
The remaining Swordsman and an Abomination move forward.

Image
Red is still panicking.

Image
The rest of the Civilians are still trying to escape.

Image
Captain Nazt: "I seem to be low on crew.  Time to recruit some more."

Image
With that he rips his shirt off, revealing his amazingly chiseled physique.

Image
And immediately he is mobbed by all the lovely ladies.
Red: "Very impressive. :warhead: "
Captain Nazt: "Ladies, ladies.  There's plenty of me to go around."

Image
Two pirates attack Brother Bernard to no avail.

Image
Borther Bernard's attack is blocked by a Pirate.

Image
A Knight moves up and dispatches a Pirate.

Image
Another Knight takes care of the second one.

Image
The rest of the Order moves into the town.

Image
The Cultist Crossbowmen take down a Knight.

Image
The Grand Inquisitor stabs Red and starts chanting.

Image
She explodes into a shower of gore.

Image
And that makes 4 Abominations.  The other 3 start playing in the blood.

Image
Mayor: "Billy!  Help me with this chest!"
Billy: "But sir, what about the girls?"
Mayor: "They're on their own.  I'm not sticking around any longer than I have to."

Image
Captain Nazt: "Aha! More treasure!  Um, girls, you mind moving a bit so that I can grab it?"
Mayor's Wife: "So muscled!"
Witch 1: "And so handsome!"
Maor's Wife: "He's mine!"
Witch 1: "He's mine!"
Cook: "He's mine!"
Witch 2: "He's mine!"
Captain Nazt: "..."

Image
2 Knights move up, but fail to kill anything.

Image
The Swordsman gets taken out by another Knight.

Image
The rest of the Order moves forward.

Image
Brother Bernard tries to leap and attack, but trips and falls instead.

Image
Cultist Crossbowmen take out another Knight.

Image
The Bat Man starts channeling a spell.

Image
Knight: "Aieeeee!"

Image
That's the 5th Abomination!  The Cult can begin their ritual now!

Image
And the Grand Inquisitor does, as he teleports himself and the Abominations to an area with space to work.

Image
Billy and the Mayor keep running.

Image
Captain Nazt: "Ladies, ladies.  You don't have to fight over me.  There's more than enough of Captain Nazt to go around."
Mayor's Wife: "How about we share him?"
Witch 1: "Sounds good to me."

Image
Cook: "Let's take him inside!"
Witch 2: "Come sister, let us get the whips and chains ready!"

Image
Mayor's Wife: "But what if he tries to escape?"
Witch 1: "Don't worry, I have him magically bound to the table.  He isn't leaving for a long time. :warhead: "

Image
A couple of Knights take out the Bat Man.

Image
This Cleric explodes himself while attempting a spell.

Image
Brother Bernard gets up and starts rushing towards the ritual.

Image
The Cultist Crossbowmen take out another Knight.

Image
Meanwhile, the Grand Inquisitor has entered a state of trance.

Image
Billy and the Mayor escape with 5 Emeralds.

Image
Captain Nazt: "Huzzah!"
Girls: !!!

Image
The Captain runs through the secret exit.
Cook: "Don't let him escape!"
Witch 2: "I haven't even brought out the whips yet. :( "

Image
Mayor's Wife: "After him!"

Image
Witch 1: "Oh, the things I'll do when we catch him."

Image
Captain Nazt: "Whew, that was a close one.  Luckily, everyone left all this nice treasure behind.  I think I'll just take it."

Image
The Captain escapes with 10 Emeralds.

Image
The members of the Order move at the Crossbowmen, but they all fail to do damage.

Image
The Grand Inquisitor: "You have lost.  The ritual is complete."
Brother Bernard: "We'll see about that.  By the power of the legendary hammer Abashen, I smite you evildoer!"

Image
The Grand Inquisitor: "Aieeeeeee!"

Image
Brother Bernard: "Something seems off."

Image
An unknown force sends the Knight flying.
Brother Bernard: "Ahhhhh!"

Image
That force then begins gathering all things nearby.

Image
KABOOM!

Image
As the dust settles, an Eldritch Gate can be seen.

Image
Brikthulhu has been summoned!

Image
As Brikthulhu walks forward, the Crossbowmen are a little amazed, while the Order doesn't hesitate in creating a defensive formation.

Image
The Crossbowmen slowly move forward.
Crossbowman: "Uh, Brikthulhu?  Hi, we're from your cult..."

Image
They freeze as Brikthulhu looks at them.

Image
He makes a simple gesture, and they explode.

Image
The blood and gore from the explosion gather near the Eldritch God's right hand...

Image
...and a mighty weapon is formed.

Image
Brikthulhu advance towards the Knights.
Brother Bernard: "Steady men!  This is the moment you've all been trained for!"

Image
But with a single swing, all 3 Knights are decapitated.

Image
The Cleric drops to his knees and starts praying out of desperation, while Brother Bernard shows no fear and charges the Eldritch God.

Image
As Brikthulhu attacks again, Brother Bernard blocks the attack with Abashen.

Image
Both combatants are thrown back by an explosion.

Image
Brother Bernard:  "No!  Abashen!"

Image
Brikthulhu advances on the Cleric, whose praying increases in speed and intensity.

Image
All of a sudden, lightning strikes the battlefield.

Image
It's Hammerman!

Image
The legendary warrior and the Eldritch God rush towards each other.

Image
SMASH!

Image
WHACK!

Image
POW!

Image
Brikthulhu is disarmed!

Image
Brikthulhu: "Skreeeee!"

Image
He gets knocked back into the Gate.

Image
And Hammerman uses his powers to seal it back up.

Image
KABOOM!

Image
Hammerman looks at the remaining Order members and gives them a nod of approval.

Image
And with that, he's gone.

Image
THE END.

Ha.  I have another one that I tried to use as a key in a keyhole when I was like 7 as well.  It's all mangled and I love it so much.  Glad you liked the battle. :)

The more I see Hammerman, the more he reminds me of Berzerk's Skull Knight.

I don't know what that is, but it seems pretty awesome.

The motto of the Order of the Hammer, should really be "Stop, hammertime"
This is the way the world ends.

A little too corny at some places for my liking, but nevertheless a great battle. A little more thought could have been put into the battlefield.

I'll admit, that was by accident.  I must have heard the name somewhere or just sounded catchy enough for a pirate.

I'm a little surprised nobody has caught on who the Captain is based off of though.
