The Arktifakt (Round 5)

Postby Craigallot » Tue Jul 10, 2018 5:10 pm

BULL FUGITIVES

Image

The Ambushers stay still to Aim and combine fire on the Warg, dealing a (disappointing) 1 SP of damage to it.

Image

Thanks to the extra movement from the Matriarch's failed feat, the Bulls are able to close the distance and attack. The Matriarch still has her action so she and Valarius attack each other simultaneously, but her swing misses.

Image

Valarius' doesn't. He aims specifically at the Warg and kills it. Two of the Shieldbearers meanwhile fail to kill a Reaver.

Image

The remaining Shieldbearers fall upon the Matriarch, savaging her with their spears. She goes down fighting, parrying a single strike with her shield, but even her tough armour eventually cracks.

Image

Smelling victory, Valarius tries to demoralize the Drakhirri further by cutting down their standard, but he accidentally breaks his sword against it instead.

Image

The icons drag the Shaman and his items to safety, get to cover against potential ranged attackers and prepare a warm welcome for anyone trying to enter the cave.

If I keep The Black Wolf alive, is there a chance he might make future appearances in the story?

Don't worry about him dying:

The Rulebook wrote:Heroes have a way of always popping back up in one form or another, no matter how many times you think you've killed them. (...) There is no number of deaths or defeats that can prevent the best characters from finding a way to return. Unless they're boring, in which case no force can save them.


Valarius right there got impaled on a lance and had his heart eaten in the 2nd battle he appeared in. :)

Zahru had the same problem with his Orc Chieftains, they just kept dying. I usually just keep making new Heroes until one distinguishes himself either by being cool or the forces of Koincidence picking his side.

IMPERIAL GARRISON

Image

Some guardsmen attack Pete and his fiance.

Image

They don't deal enough damage and one gets killed by a counter.

Image

The guardsman who stole the staff crit fails and falls over.

Image

The Peasant Rebellion allying with their oppressors? What madness is this?!  :mystery: Both sides get a Benny Of Inevitable Betrayal. If the alliance carries on too long the Water Demons may have to punish this betrayal and peasants may start to doubt their loyalty to the Rebellion.

Image

The Commander whistles and his barded warhorse shows up soon after.

Image

He gallops towards the Bulls and strikes at a Shieldbearer, but crit fails and misses.

Image

The Shieldbearer turns around and strikes the horse, wounding it.

DRAKLON RAIDERS

Image

A Reaver picks up the Draklon banner and smacks Valarius with it, but the heavy armour and the shield is too tough.

Image

"You want this?! Take it!" the banner carrier says. He crits the strike but then only gets a '1' on his damage roll.

Image

The other Reavers retreat and form up, preparing counters and covering each other. The one stuck in combat with the Shieldbearers manages nothing.

Image

The bridge isn't that hard to put aside so the Draklon boat pushes it aside. Mariners fire at the shark.

THE WOLFPACK

Image

"Hey Fishface, is that a shark over there or is that your mom?"

Image

"RAH!"

Fishstache takes a wild swing at The Black Wolf but he bends back and the swing accidentally strikes down one of the Heavy Swords.

Image

The Wolfpack Rangers try to swarm Fishstache. Two get cut down on the way there, but two make it! They narrowly fail to beat his armour.

Image

Four rangers flank and fire past the shields and the water. One shot plows through and kills two Mace-Demons.

SCALLYWAGS OF THE HOLY FLAME

Image

Slimy Pete runs for the mill. His fiance gets cut down on the way there.

Image

He gets a Last Man Standing Benny and mutters a prayer to the Holy Flame, but it seems the Holy Flame prefers action to prayer, for nothing happens.

THE PEASANT IMPERIAL LAPDOGS

Image

The crossbow rabble moves up as the rest of them swarm towards Slimy Pete. Crossbows are just out of range so they set up response fire.

Image

Pete had best pray hard, and fast.

WATER DEMONS

Image

Fishstache tries to shoot the shield outward towards the Wolfpack like daggers, but aims the wrong way, making all of his men (and himself) take 1d6 damage. Luckily for the Water Demons the damage rolls aren't too high.

Image

They then spread out and each attack a target.

Image

Only Fishstache manages a kill.

Image
