"YOU FIERY BITCH! And your elemental-monster too."
While failing to inspire his men this turn, they string their bows and combine fire on the matriarch.
The damage is enough to overheat the elemental somehow, as it glows brightly and starts to burst apart.
The fire matriarch perishes, taking the last berserker with it. Frostborne (bann154)
The surviving swordsman plunges his blade into an elf's nether regions.
He then moves up toward the Esduin hero, challenging her with a dynamic pose.
An icebreaker turns a paladin's head into mush.
None of the other warriors gain any more kills, but hold their ground valiantly. Draklon (RedRover)
Draklon rangers move up to join the Esduin's ranged troops. They aim with practiced and steady hands, and-
-Are you kidding me.
The both critfail their use rolls and drop their bows.
The wardens plow a path up the hill, heedlessly skirting past the Esduin frontlines.
One crushes an icebreaker with his flail.
Lucer sneaks away from his men and up the cliffside.
He shuffles past Frostborne corpses, opens the door to the watchtower and glances around him with shifty eyes.
Then disappears in the tower, though only having enough move to get to the second floor.Esduin (TheVengefulOne)
A few Esduin archers combine fire on a spearbearer with overwhelming success.
Inquisitors charge up the hill while the last remaining icebreaker does his best to parry their merciless attacks.
A paladin finds a hole in the frontlines and charges forward, he fails to do any damage to the spearbearers though.
They don't appreciate his attempt.
Meanwhile the icebreaker succumbs to his fate.
Jy'udi fails a heroic feat, so instead she looks on to Frostborne's imminent defeat. (she also dispatches the foolish swordsman confronting her, but I was lame and forgot to snap a photo of that. It happened really fast).
Esduin forces move up the hill, unheeded by all but Frostborne's last feeble line of defense. Things aren't looking good.Esduin and Draklon are victorious!
Frostborne has failed to light the beacon tower in time before Esduin breaks through. Stay tuned for the aftermath.
