Axeleron Chronicle EP. 1: Attack on Armol [CONCLUSION]

Postby Bookwyrm » Sun Apr 09, 2017 1:17 am

(Recommended Listening)
The village of Armol, just outside the boundaries of the western edge of the Wyrdwood.

Image

Image

Farmer: Good afternoon sir! I say, have you heard the news?
Shepherd: Aye, my wife said she saw the soldiers from Caerlon arrive this morning with that stranger in red and gold armor. What do you suppose they’re here for?

Image

Farmer: Dammned if I know, but young master Kent seemed quite excited about their visit. Says that his ship’s finally come in.
Shepherd: Boy’s head has always been in the clouds, maybe they’ll be able to talk some sense into the youth, keep him from running off to the city to join the Renlothian army.
Farmer: Somehow, I doubt that will be the end result of their visit.

Image

The Warden: I believe that will be sufficient, Captain Corrik. It has been many years since I last visited Armol, but not much has changed since then.
Captain Corrik: Very good. Are you satisfied with the security of the relic, Warden?
The Warden: I have never been fully in favor of keeping a Seal hidden this town, but we cannot keep them all under constant watch, and Tannis was always a great proponent of concealing things by keeping them in plain sight. I am reasonably sure that no harm will befall it here.
Corrik: Speaking of Tannis, here comes his progeny.

Image

Galvyn: You sent for me Captain?
Corrik: Aye. This is the Warden of Bredon, he fought alongside your great grandfather.
Galvyn: It’s an honor to meet you sir!
The Warden: Likewise. You bear a striking resemblance to Tannis, may the Creator rest his soul.
Galvyn: My family has told me stories about your party’s adventures since I was a lad. Right now I’m training with the town guard, but I hope to join the Royal Army once I am able. I would be honored if you would continue my education once I move to Caerlon!
The Warden: I believe that might be able to be arranged. Corrik tells me you have been training hard, if you visit the capital in a year or so, I will provide a recommendation to the captain of the city guard.
*The sound of screaming townsfolk suddenly catches their attention.*

Image

Washer Woman: Help! Fey!
Dullahan: Scour yon village and recover the Seal! The Evil Eye commands it! Leave none alive if thou must!

Image

Galvyn: Unseelie fey?! What are they doing here? It’s still months until the Wild Hunt, they never venture this far outside the Wyrdwood until then!
Corrik: Tell that to them!
The Warden: I fear they may be here for the Seal. We must defend the village at all costs, it cannot be allowed to fall into their hands.
Corrik: Galvyn, mobilize the townsfolk and get the weak to safety! Men, to my side!
Galvyn: Yes sir!

Image

The battle for Armol has begun.

Attack on Armol: TURN 1

Postby Bookwyrm » Tue Apr 11, 2017 2:01 am

TURN ONE

Fomorians - Quantumsurfer

Image

The dullahan moves into position and laughs maniacally...

Image

afearing two angry townsfolk, a fearful townsfolk, and Galvyn.

Image

The Morrigan priestess moves into range of the Shellycobb and casts Battle Rage.

Image

However, the spell crit fails...

Image

...Filling the shepherd's dog with furious anger. (The Townsfolk acquired a new unit, which can be given orders starting the next turn: Very Pissed-Off Dog)

Image

The rawheads, shellycobb, and two redcaps all move towards the well and the townsfolk.

Image

The other redcap moves to the nearest box and opens it, revealing a bunch of mostly worthless crystals (No effect).

Image

The revenants get to work ripping up terrain. One tears a small tree up and swings it around like a bat.

Image

The other hefts a heavy boulder into the air and hurls it at the townsfolk in its line of sight.

Image

Image

However due to being out of range by a couple inches, the throw falls short and the boulder breaks apart into smaller chunks that fly everywhere.


Town Guard - Captain-Camper

Image

Corrik and his men spring into action and begin to move to engage the dark fey.

Image

Image

The smith quickly mans the cannon and re-positions it to allow him to get a shot off on the dullahan.

Image

But the attack crit fails! The smith's shaky hands ignite loose powder and sets off a blast that blows a wheel off the cannon cart and throws him back, causing a point of damage to each of them.

Image

Smith: Lousy fukkin no-good cheap-ass cannons!



Townsfolk - TastySkippy123

Image

The fearful townsfolk steel their nerves and high-tail it to the blacksmith's barrel of iron weapons, dropping their useless tools. (Fearful Townsfolk are now considered upgraded to Well-Armed Townsfolk.)

Image

Galvyn and two of the angry townsfolk engage the dullahan in combat, but despite decent rolls  and Galvyn's leadership bonus, due to both the low damage nature of their tools and the fear effect still afflicting them, the blows deal no damage to the cackling headless horseman.

Image

The monk moves in range to try and heal the smith from his injuries, but the diemons are not favoring him today and the healing prayer fizzles.


Renlothians - RedRover

Image

The Warden snaps into action, his mind flitting through the many things he has observed around the town that might give him a tactical advantage. (Feat: Perception to reveal beneficial/helpful terrain features.)

Image

Success. The Warden's eye is caught by some elements of the church, namely the Angel Statue that he might be able to use his powers of summoning and animation enchantment upon, and also by the lever on the side of the building as well.

Image

He also takes note of the two red crystals that spilled from the redcap's box, which might also be of some use, though only to him. He decides to move towards the church since there are two tactical advantages in that general area, and come back for the crystals later.

Image

The crossbowmen move to the wooden palisade for cover, opening the chest on their way and revealing a coil of rope (Single use tool, can be used to instantly scale up the side of the church, guard tower, large tree, or large rock terrain.)

Image

The one crossbowman within range of the redcap near the crystals takes a potshot at the bearded bastard, and does a whopping ten points of damage, easily bypassing the redcap's armor and chipping off 1 health.

TURN TWO

Town Guard - Captain-Camper

Image

Corrik and his men position themselves between the onslaught of fey and the guards raise their shields. The captain uses Battle Cry

Corrik: Hold your ground men!

The men's resolve (and their skill rolls) are raised.

Image

The smith regains his composure and quickly and efficiently smothers the fire and reattaches the cannon's wheel. Good as new.



Renlothians - RedRover

Image

The Warden prepares to sprint to the chapel to gain a more strategic footing, but before he does, one of his men yells to get his attention.

Crossbowman: Sir! Catch!

Image

Image

Image

He deftly snatches the coil of rope out of the air, and promptly books it to the chapel on the hill.

Image

As he runs, he mumbles words of power to summon his mana of animation and summoning. (Feat: Interact with the angel statue with magic.)

Image

Success. A bolt of energy lances from the tip of his Gatekeeper Halberd and strikes the stone angel...

Image

Giving the construct artificial life and allowing it to move and fight. (The Renlothians acquired a new unit, which can be given orders starting the next turn: Animated Stone Angel)

ACHIEVEMENT GET: -Don’t Even Blink-
As the Renloth Guard, use the Warden to animate the Angel Statue.

Image

The Crossbowman with an unused action fires another bolt at the redcap in range, but misses.



Fomorians - Quantumsurfer

Image

The shellycobb circles around the well and opens the crate, revealing a broken bottle (no effect).

Image

The dullahan hurls his flaming pumpkin into the midst of the soldiers and townsfolk, but flubs his skill roll, and the pumpkin sails over their heads...

Image

Exploding and blowing a crate and the healing potions inside to bits, as well as blasting a chunk out of the guard tower wall.

Image

The priestess calls upon the power of the Morrigan and hexes Galvyn with misfortune, making him unlucky until the next round.

Image

The redcaps rush the soldiers and unleash a brutal combined attack on one of the town guards.

Image

Their damage rolls are insane.

Image

Despite his leadership bonus and a successful parry, the damage is still too much and the guard is butchered, a spray of blood and viscera showering the area.

Image

First Blood goes to Quantumsurfer.

Image

The remaining redcap opens the chest to find and apple (no effect).

Image

One revenant rips and tears at the great tree, smashing bits of it and breaking it down, both because it wants a weapon, and also because I'm getting tired of trying to photograph around it and having it fall on my figs.

Image

The revenant grabs a branch and leaves the rest of the tree in bits.

Image

Image

The other smashes its tree into the ground, ridding it of its leaves, and swings at the very pissed off dog, but the blow glances off.

Image

The dog counterattacks, sinking its teeth into the bone of the revenant's leg, chipping off a hitpoint.

BORK BORK MOTHERFUCKER



Townsfolk - TastySkippy123

Image

The two groups of townsfolk switch places, with the less armed villagers also rushing to the bucket to arm themselves.

ACHIEVEMENT GET: -Level Up-
As the Armolean Townsfolk, upgrade all Angry Townsfolk and Fearful Townsfolk to Well Armed Townsfolk.

Image

The others rush towards the dullahan, but are unable to reach it to engage in close combat.

Image

Despite the curse of misfortune inflicting him, Galvyn still manages to sucker punch the unsuspecting shellycobb and deal 1HP damage to it's chitinous body.

Image

The monk was given no orders, so he simply repeated his last order and tried to heal the smith, but again failed the skill roll necessary.

Monk: fuck

Image

The dog disengages from the revenant and sets his sights on another target: the priestess. He is not fast enough to reach her this turn.
