The Only Throne That Matters - Turn 3

Postby Arkbrik » Tue Aug 28, 2018 3:20 pm

Image

It's market day in Royalton, capital of the Seventy-Seven Kingdoms, and peasants from all over the region have flocked to the city.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Merry travellers visit the Spitting Dragon tavern...

Image

...while the taxes from the commerce fill the king's coffers.

Image

From the Yellow Keep, princess Leonora Lionmane looks out at the peasants.

"So adorable, seeing the little folk selling apples, buying fish, eating cake! Or whatever it is they eat..."

Image

But her father, king Leonard Lionmane, is worried. House Lionmane rules the Seventy-Seven Kingdoms by virtue of the Red Throne - the one Leonard is sitting on. But the other noble houses are always plotting to seize control of the throne, and thus, all of the Kingdoms!

"Are all soldiers on alert?"

"Yes, your grace!"

Image

"Good. The spy we captured refuses to talk... but it's clear that house Corona is planning something! And if they are, the other houses can't be far behind."

Image

The words have barely left the king's mouth, before he is proven right!

From the north comes the army of house Corona! King Angelo leads a formation of his finest troops. They are accompanied by his daughter, princess Rosanna, the deadliest archer in the Seventy-Seven Kingdoms.

"For too long has king Leonard ruled these Kingdoms unjustly! The Red Throne is mine, by right!"

"Aye, father! We will not be denied!"

Image

A chill wind blows from the west, as the skeletal minions of house Osteas march forth! They are led by the necromancer king Arkan, and the wight-princess Crania, carrier of the wicked Hexblade.

"Come, my daughter. Today we complete the great work."

"Today, all joy and all life shall end!"

Image

Raucous warcries are heard from the south. The barbaric warriors that follow house Tauro are coming! King Feridonando and his daughter, the bloodthirsty princess Sakura, lead the charge.

"Ready to gut some Lions, my little flower?"

"Yeah, dad! Let's get them!"

Image

The Lionmane guards hurry to close the gate.

Image

Four great houses are about to clash... but only one of them can take the Red Throne, and rule the Seventy-Seven Kingdoms.

* * *

Taking the Red Throne

- The battle will last for 5 turns.

- At the end of the 5th turn, the house whose king is sitting on the Red Throne wins!

- If the king of a house is slain, the princess takes command of the house, and can sit on the Throne to win.

- The princess can't control the throne if her father is still alive, though.

- Each house also has a secret secondary objective. If no one is sitting on the throne at the end of the game, they can win a minor victory if they achieve this.

Kings and Princesses

The princesses are Heroes. The kings have Heroic stats, but can't perform Heroic Feats or use redshirts. Instead, they give their army a special bonus as long as they are alive.

- King Leonard Lionmane gives a +2 bonus to initiative rolls.
- King Angelo Corona gives a +1 bonus to damage against enemy kings and princesses for all Corona warriors.
- King Arkan Osteas will, at the end of each turn, raise the closest fallen foe as an undead minion.
- King Feridonando Tauro gives a +1" move bonus to all Tauro warriors.

Turn 1

Move Phase

Image

The Tauro horde moves forward!

Image

The siege tower rams the wine stand and destroys it, along with a peasant.

Image

A Lionmane halberdier climbs onto the wall, while two brace to hold the gate. The Mechanik reluctantly gets off his break, and comes down the courtyard to see if anything needs fixing.

Image

King Leonard keeps his behind firmly planted on the Red Throne. No one shall usurp it from him!

The guard comes down from the throne room, while Princess Leonora walks out on the wall to see what all the commotion is about.

Image

The Corona army advances.

"Out of the way, peasants! This fruit stand is mine, by right!"

Image

"Now what is this...? Some kind of Lionmane secret weapon?"

Image

The Osteas battering ram topples the pig farmer's stand, and a kid is crushed under its wheels. The skeleton warriors spread out.

Hero Phase

Image

Princess Sakura winds up to smack a peasant!

Image

Huh? He dodges!

Image

Sakura loses hold of the axe, and it flies away into the distance.

Image

Princess Leonora addresses the peasants.

"Listen to me, my little subjects! The invaders are on our doorstep, but don't be afraid! If we all work together, we can overcome anything! You stay out there and fight them! I stay on the wall and cheer you on!"

Image

Her speech does not go over well.

"Darn cowardly nobles! Eat this!"

Image

Leonora is pelted with pumpkins, and a crossbowwoman has to leap in the way to save the princess' dignity. The soldier is killed by the pumpkins, but it's a small price to pay, as long as Leonora's dress remains spotless.

Image

Princess Crania raises the Hexblade.

"Now let the heavens weep, as all the living shall!"

Dark clouds gather overhead.

Image

"Not on my watch, wight!"

Princess Rosanna looses an arrow!

Image

The golden arrow hits the Hexblade, and the fell magic goes awry!

Image

SPLASH!

Instead of an evil rain, a single glob of foul water falls from the sky... right on top of princess Crania. She is smacked to the ground, disrupted.

Action Phase

Image

The Tauro archer shoots at a Lionmane crossbowman, but hits the wall.

Image

The crossbowman fires back, but hits the siege tower, just as harmlessly.

Image

Another bolt misses the skeletons.

Image

This guard sprints out onto the wall.

Image

The Corona Mechanik considers how the trebuchet can be improved, but she doesn't have any loose bricks to work with here.

Image

The trebuchet fires!

Image

The wall is hit, but holds... barely. 2 SP are lost, 1 remains.

Image

King Arkan slays the pig farmer with a blast of magic!

Image

Another peasant is nailed by a skeleton's crossbow bolt.

Image

The frightened wine salesman leaps out of the way of the siege tower.

Image

"Now that your life and your dreams have been extinguished, you may join the new masters of this world."

Image

The pig farmer rises as an undead!

Turn 2

Move Phase

Image

The siege tower reaches the wall!

Image

Tauro warriors ascend, eager to slay.

Image

On the other side of the field, the Corona force splits. Two soldiers go with princess Rosanna, while three go with king Angelo.

The Mechanik inspects the pumpkins.

Image

The Lionmane soldiers hurry to intercept the Tauro force; princess Leonora also walks over.

The Mechanik goes to take a look at the damaged wall.

Image

King Leonard keeps on sitting.

"My throne. My throne!"

Image

The skeletal ram knocks over the cake stand, and slams into the gate!

Image

The Lionmane soldiers push back with all their might, and the gate holds. For now.

Image

The Osteas forces group up around the ram. Princess Crania stands up and brushes herself off.

Image

The peasants are moving about.

Hero Phase

Image

Princess Sakura winds up again.

"Now you've pissed me off, farmer!"

Image

"Hiiiyaaauhh?!"

Image

There goes the second axe.

Image

Rosanna takes aim.

"Now for the necromancer."

Image

THWACK!

"Agh!"

Image

"What did that mortal do to my staff? ...Hmm. Seems fine."

But is it?

Image

Leonora looks out over the clashing armies, to the more pleasant landscape beyond.

"Oh, the beauty of nature! It just makes you want to..."

Image

"...sing!"

Image

A swarm of cute critters emerges from the woods, called by Leonora's beautiful song.

Image

They scamper towards the skeletons.

Image

Crania will not be outdone. She'll have her own pets.

"You small ones, who have left life behind... Now arise, and bring down those who still draw breath!"

Image

The peasants are attacked by zombie fish!

None of them die, but they are disrupted.

Image

Suddenly, the pigs break out of the pen! They're charging at king Arkan!

Image

But the undead pig farmer stops them before they can reach his new master. They squeal, betrayed.

"My loyalty is to death now... I have no more love for living pigs."

Action Phase

Image

Having disarmed herself, Sakura retreats.

Image

Warriors clash on the wall, but the Tauro swords and arrows can't penetrate the Lionmane armor.

Image

The Corona trebuchet fires!

Image

CRASH!

The wall is breached!

Image

King Angelo and his soldiers charge through the treasury, and into the courtyard.

Image

The Mechanik uses the pumpkins to fine-tune the counterweight of the trebuchet.

Image

Perfect! That will make it more accurate against smaller targets.

Image

The Lionmane halberdier cleaves a Tauro warrior in two.

Image

The crossbowman above the gate goes for the glory, and shoots at king Arkan... but he misses.

Image

The vermin swarm pulls apart a skeleton.

Image

The Mechanik has his work cut out for him.

Image

He quickly patches up the wall. It's not quite as sturdy as before... but almost!

Image

The battering ram pounds the gate.

Image

SMASH!

The Lionmane soldiers can't hold! The gate flies open!

Image

The skeletons try to kill the peasants, but are largely unsuccessful. It's just this poor pig who gets speared.

Image

The skeleton Mechanik thinks it would be a shame to let the corrupted rain go to waste...

Image

...so he puts together a laser turret! Like, a magic laser turret, you know?

Image

What is this peasant doing?

Image

THWACK!

"Ow!"

"For the revolution! Rise up! Overthrow the monarchs!"

Secret Faction activated: Peasants
commanded by Falk

This is the moment for the peasants to bring down their unjust rulers, and establish a nation by and for the people!

If ALL kings and princesses are killed, the battle ends and the peasants win!

Image

"Hey barbarian, want some wine?"

Image

"Sure! Why not?"

Image

"HUUUURK!"

"Haha! It was poisoned!"

Image

The poison wasn't strong enough to kill a Tauro warrior, though, and now she's mad.

Image

This guy picks up the axes he dodged.

Image

Three peasants see that their wine selling buddy is in trouble, and start throwing apples!

Image

The apples achieve what the wine could not.

Image

Four peasants run into the Yellow Keep, eager to have a word with king Leonard.

Image

King Arkan casts his dark magic on the pig carcass... but it crackles in an unusual manner.

Image

Rosanna's arrow destabilized the staff! The pig is turned into a ferocious Swine Demon, straight from hell!
