PREVIOUS EPISODE: (~X~)
NEXT EPISODE: (~X~)

(Recommended Listening:)
The gates of the Winter fortress of Arctis Tor.

Image

Image

Robin: We’re approaching the gates, be ready.


Image

Oberon: Company halt! Prepare yourselves!


Image

A deep, grinding noise begins to emanate from the gates.


Image

Image

The sound of jeering goblins and marching troops washes over the battlefield.


Image

Balor: Well well, we have visitors. What brings you and your shrew of a wife to my abode, Oberon?


Image

Oberon: This has gone on long enough, Balor. Your reign ends today one way or another. Mab will be restored to her position, and she will decide what to do with you and your traitorous followers.


Image

Balor: Ha! You are more of a fool than I took you to be. You have no idea what you are dealing with now, sylvan. Events are in motion now that you have no hopes of stopping. Ragnablok is coming, and you will all be swept away in its tide of destruction for your weakness!


Image

Balor: Persist in your attack if you must, I have more important things to attend to. I will greatly enjoy watching your deaths from my chambers and feeding your bodies to my troops when this is over.

Priestess: Raven’s Eye!


Image

Dullahan: Forward! Crush them beneath your heels!


Image

Nuckelavee: Feast on their marrow! Show no mercy! Leave none of them alive!


Image

Evoker: Form ranks! Kill the adventurers and their fey friends!


Image

Corrik: Right, that’s our cue!

Robin: Prepare for battle, men! Time to show them why they should fear the might of the Seelie!


Image

Titania: Charge!


Image

Erlking: Charge!


Image

Oberon: Charge!


Image

Goblins: Charge!


Image

Spider: Screee!*

(*Spider for “Charge!”)


Image

Overwatch



Turn One

Spring:

Image

The Spring troops move up.


Image

The sylphs fly into position to cover more area.


Image

Titania and her guard move to pass up the spider.


Image

It doesn't take kindly to the intruders and sprays a sticky cone of webs at the faerie queen.


Image

Titania: Oh for the god’s sake! This is never going to come out of my hair, is it?


Image

The beekeepers flank around towards the main bulk of the Spring force.


Image

The sprites on their beasts cut through towards the Fomorian front line.


Image

The kobolds move towards the Summer force.



Dullahan’s Force:

Image

Dullahan: Charge forth, my fetches! Devour their hope and feed on their terror!


Image

The fetches, night gaunts, and Dullahan charge to meet the Fey armies, but are unable to get into combat range.



Nuckelavee’s Force:

Image

The Nuckelavee. redcaps, and rawheads all move up as well.



Summer:

Image

The summer force of fey knights and boggans moves up in a line formation, led by Oberon and his sprite guards.


Image

Mad Sweeny beckons to the kobolds to follow him.

Mad Sweeny: Oright ya gits, lets git these ere siege engines inta position!


Image

The druids direct their rune monoliths forward slowly…


Image

…With the wicker man following.



Dungeonmasters Guild:

Image

The myconids, evoker, and owlbear move to the cover of the tower towards the Spring fey.



Fomorian Troops:

Image

The goblins and boggart banner carrier move forward.


Image

Revenant 1: You know why these guys are attacking us?

Revenant 2: I think they’re trying to free Mab from her imprisonment.


Image

Revenant 1: I hear she’s got a really icy personality

Revenant 2: Really? That’s surprising!

Revenant 1: Really? Why’s that?

Revenant 2: Because her leadership’s only lukewarm!

Revenants: Oh ho ho ho!



Autumn:

Image

The Erlking moves forward with the rest of the army, while the rest of the Autumn force maneuvers closer to the Dullahan’s force.

Turn Two:

Summer:

Image

Oberon lifts off into the air and begins flying quickly towards the enemy ranks.


Image

His sprite guards conjure shields and leap into the air after him.


Image

The fey knights maneuver around a bush…


Image

…As do the boggans.


Image

Boggan: Stay away from my fukkin berries.


Image

The wicker man lopes along behind the main force, biding its time.


Image

Mad Sweeny: Here, ya wee wrinkly buggers, make yerselves useful!


Image

The kobolds unearth the boulder with their picks.


Image

They begin rolling it along as they move to meet up with the siege teams.


Image

The monoliths float forwards behind the rest of the group, staying protected by the front line.



Galvyn’s Force:

Image

Galvyn’s company moves up as well.



Dungeonmasters Guild:

Image

The DMs Guild forces advance.


Image

The myconid leader approaches the spider’s lair with a gift, and attempts to sway the beast to their side.


Image

The spider is very grateful for the offering, and will gladly accept, as long as it gets to have the bodies when the fighting is over for a snack.


Image

The colossal arachnid turns to start attacking the Spring fey in earnest.



Autumn:

Image

The Autumn company charges forward at the encroaching phobophages, speeding past the Erlking.


Image

The spriggans launch an attack on the night gaunts, but roll phenomenally poorly, and are unable to even do a single point of damage.



Fomorian Troops:

Image

Goblins: For the Evil Eye!


Image

The Fomorian troops continue to maneuver forward to engage Summer.


Image

The revenants decide to get in on the action and stop heckling to cause some carnage...


Image

...And move to attack the svartalves.



Dullahan’s Force:

Image

The night gaunts aren’t having any of these tree bastards’ shit. One crits and stomps on a greek knight’s head, and another seizes the other green knight by the throat.


Image

Green Knight: Grkk!


Image

YEET


Image

The green knight has a few seconds to contemplate his life decisions up to this point…


Image

...Before meeting a very sudden end at the hands of the forest floor.


Image

The fetches bum rush to meet their flying attackers.


Image

The Dullahan charges forward…


Image

And hurls his pumpkin head…


Image

BOOM!

Two of the knights are disrupted and damaged, and one is set ablaze by the blast.



Nuckelavee’s Force:

Image

The bloody Fomorian fey charge the Summer front line.


Image

The Nuckelavee breathes a cone of toxic gas onto a squad of boggans.


Image

All three are infected with plague, as the rot eats away at their flesh and stamina.



Spring:

Image

The sprites direct their creatures forward. The faery dragon breathes purple flame onto one of the rawheads as it flies overhead.

(Additionally, the forest guardian chomped and killed a redcap, but for some reason I lost the picture, so just know that happened.)


Image

A sylph cleanses the queen of her sticky bonds.


Image

Titania’s guards position themselves between her and the marauding spider, unfortunately doing no damage to the monster.


Image

Another sylph cleanses the plague from one of the boggans.


Image

The beekeepers also move to attack the spider and defend their queen.


Image

The sluagh drifts forward aimlessly. He’s just happy to be included.


Image

Overwatch.

Turn 3

Nuckelavee’s Force:

Image

The Nuckelavee charges the other squad of boggans.


Image

The swamp fey are trampled underfoot then thrown aside like bowling pins, and one is torn apart by its huge bloody claws.


Image

The redcaps attack the infected boggans, swinging their scythes wildly.


Image

Redcap: Blood for the Evil Eye!


Image

The rawheads gang up to maul the forest guardian, lashing at it with bloody tendrils and bony barbs.


Image

The faery fire scorched rawhead feeds on the downed redcap to heal itself.



Autumn:

Image

Erlking: Forward my hounds!


Image

The pack of faery hounds descends on one of the night gaunts.


Image

The bony creature is torn apart by the teeth of the hounds.


Image

Two mantis riders attack the dullahan, but the dark fey is too quick and easily avoids the wide swings of their polearms.


Image

Erlking: Come on ye rookies, let me show you how it’s done!


Image

He throws his blade expertly.


Image

The blade sinks deep into the Dullahan’s horse’s torso, killing it instantly.


Image

The other svartalves engage the revenants.


Image

One is destroyed by the heavy swings of their halberds, shattering its long limbs apart.


Image

The other critfails and freezes in terror as the leering giant skeleton rushes at him.

Revenant 2: You killed Waldorf! You bastards!


Image

The revenant’s counterattack leaves a hole in the hapless svartalf’s torso.



Galvyn’s Force:

Image

The gruffs and adventurers move up to support the Summer front line.


Image

Corrik uses a battlecry.

Corrik: Alright troops, cut them down! YAAAAAH!


Image

Invigorated by the warcry, the gruffs hurl a volley of javelins.


Image

While some fall short, one wounds a rawhead.



Dungeonmasters Guild:

Image

The spider rips into one of the Spring guards, while the phalanx of myconids is fended off by the other.


Image

The gelatinous cube evoker sends his swarm to attack the forest guardian, taking off another hp.


Image

The owlbear moves up and looks more pissed off than usual.



Spring:

Image

The sluagh spots the owlbear lumbering up.

Slaugh: Whoooooooo… are yoooooou looking at??


Image

It swoops down and attempts to smother the beast to death.


Image

But it critfails! The owlbear counterattacks and rips its vaporous body apart.


Image

The beekeepers all direct their swarms to gang up on this damn spider.


Image

It takes all the damage.

Spider: SCREEEEEEEE*

(*Spider for “OH THE HUMANITY!”)


Image

Two of the sylphs move up and heal the forest guardian.


Image

The reinvigorated guardian turns on one of the rawheads that was attacking it.

Om nom nom.


Image

The faery dragon swoops around to blast the goblins from behind.


Image

Unfortunately, it gets within range of the sidhe archer’s deadly arrows.


Image

The sprite never saw it coming.


Image

The faery dragon alights daintily on the ground, blissfully unaware of the carnage unfolding around it.


Image

Titania and her remaining guard attempt to kill the myconids with lashing vines and spears, but are unable to make much more headway than holding them off.



Dullahan’s Force:

Image

The Dullahan picks himself up off the ground and resummons another jack o lantern head.


Image

The fetches dart forward. One leaps into the air towards a Summer sprite guard.


Image

The shadowy fey monstrosity tears her into bloody ribbons, covering the area with sprite cranberry.


Image

The other two fetches fall upon the disrupted Summer troops and make short work of them.


Image

One night gaunt takes to the air, while the other dropkicks a spriggan.



Summer:

Image

Two fae knights swing their blades at the fetch.


Image

They strike the dark creature down and avenge their fallen bretheren.


Image

The other goes over and beats out the fire on his smoldering companion.

Knight 1: Stop, drop, and roll man!

Knight 2: WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE I’M DOING!?


Image

The boggans attack the redcaps, but fail to do any damage. One critfails and drops his spear.


Image

The kobolds and monolith company moves closer to the front line.


Image

The wicker man turns towards the rampaging Nuckelavee.


Image

Nuckelavee: Oh shiiiii-


Image

SPLORTCH

The wicker man punches its torso clear off its back.


Image

Oberon and his remaining sprite guard attack the goblins. The king cleaves his foe in two, while the hummingbird-winged sprite is blocked by the goblin’s shield.



Fomorian Troops:

Image

The boggart, being the only Fomorian that hasn’t already taken its action, throws it’s tomahawk at Oberon.


Image

plop

Turn Four

Spring:

Image

The beekeepers continue their assault on the spider.


Image

The monstrous creature finally goes down, curling up in death.


Image

Spring Guard: Heeyah!

She impales the myconid on the end of her spear.


Image

Spring Guard: Are you alright my queen?

Titania: I’m fine, but we really need to exterminate these blasted spiders, they’re becoming a nuisance.

Spring Guard: Shall I add “spider removal” to your schedule?


Image

The forest guardian rears up behind one of the redcaps.


Image

Redcap: help


Image

OHMM NOHMM NOHMM


Image

The sylphs continue to keep the forest guardian alive despite all odds.


Fomorian Troops:

Image

The goblins gang up on and finish off the other sprite.


Image

Boggart: Yah! I am terror incarnate!


Image

Oberon: Oof


Image

Oberon: This is idiotic.


Image

The revenant picks up the stray halberd dropped by its victim.


Image

Revenant 2: Let’s see how you like it you ass!


Image

Another mantis rider goes down.


Dullahan’s Force:

Image

The fetch moves towards the siege team but gets in range of response attacks. Mad Sweeny sets his beady sights on the nearby fetch.


Image

Mad Sweeny: Oi ya sneaky fuck! Oot of me way!


Image

Against all reason the hat crushes the fetches ribcage and kills it instantaneously, then continues forwards, carrying the shrouded body trailing behind like a windsock.


Image

The other fetch attacks a fae knight, who nimbly dances out of the way.


Image

The flying gaunt dive bombs the downed spriggan.


Image

Spriggan: No please!


Image

Ignoring his plea, the night gaunt rips out his guts.

Spriggan: gurgle


Image

The other makes an unsuccessful swing at a mantis rider.


Image

The Dullahan makes a flying leap at the pack of faery hounds.


Image

*Slam Dunk!*

Flaming dogs fly everywhere.



Autumn:

Image

The svartalf officer engages with the other night gaunt.


Image

His halberd slices off an arm and a leg before gutting the horror.


Image

Svartalf 1: Hey, you see Lord Oberon over there get knocked on his ass?

Svartalf 2: Heh, yeah. We should probably go kill that guy though.

Svartalf 1: Yeah I’m down.


Image

The mantis riders charge the boggart.


Image

Boggart: Wah!


Image

Erlking: Bloody Ankou, you’re abominations!


Image

The Autumn Lord rushes forward…


Image

...And tackles the remaining nightgaunt to the ground.


Image

Erlking: Stop squirming ye slippery fucker!


Image

Splort!



Galvyn’s Force:

Image

Galvyn leads his contingent to fill the gap in the front line.


Image

He and Robin finish off the wounded rawhead.


Image

The gruffs hurl another volley of javelins.


Image

This time, their aim is a little better and the spears riddle the last rawhead with holes.


Image

Corrik maneuvers towards the center of the fighting.



Dungeonmasters Guild:

Image

As the giant spider falls, the egg sack in the spider’s lair begins to shake…


Image

It breaks open, hatching dozens of spiderlings that swarm forward.


Image

The spiderlings surge forward, getting their first ever meal of insects.

Mmmmm, fresh bee juices. Delicious, and part of a complete spider breakfast.


Image

The myconid battalion moves forward and takes advantage of the gap in the beekeeper’s defenses to cut one down, and mob up on the remaining Spring guard.


Image

The evoker redirects the attention of his swarm…


Image

...Towards the troublesome gruff squad.


Image

The gruff officer is dissolved into a corrosive mess by the slimy cubes.


Image

The owlbear begins to maul the side of the forest guardian.


Image

In a last ditch attempt to get rid of the rampaging plant/fox thing that keeps eating his companions, the redcap uses his haemomancy to hurl a blood axe at the real source of the problem…


Image

The healers.



Summer:

Image

The boggans surround the lone redcap.


Image

He won’t be killing any more sylphs.


Image

The remaining fae knights team up on the last fetch, but it laughs off their attacks easily.


Image

Mad Sweeny: Need a hand, Lord Oberon?

Oberon: *Sigh* Yes please.


Image

The kobolds charge through behind their king, rolling the boulder along in front of them.


Image

They get it up to a decent speed then shove it towards the goblin squad.


Image

*Strike!*


Image

The siege weapons move into position.


Image

Overwatch.
~~~<>~~~


Image

With the banner of the Fomorians fallen, the remaining leader on the field assesses the situation.

Dullahan: Fall back to the gate!


Image

The Fomorian troops retreat back, redeploying to in front of the wall.


Image

Oberon: Get those monoliths into position! Prepare for another wave!


Image

The gates swing open, and reinforcements arrive, led by Balor. Accompanying him are his grimalkin mount, a yeth hound familiar, and the Morrigan Priestesses and Banshee.


Image

Balor: To me, my armies! We will crush the invaders once and for all!


Image

Image

The shellycobbs that have been guarding the walls leap down to join the main force.


Image

Robin: We’ve got them now! If we can get Balor when he’s exposed, the rest of his troops will surrender!

Galvyn: Right! Let’s end this!


Image

Mantis 1: <Hey, do you know what’s going on?>

Mantis 2: <No, but I do know there’s a lot of bodies laying around here. Wanna eat them?>

Mantis 1: <You know it!>


Image

Overwatch.

Turn Five

Fey Military:

Image

The entire fey infantry force charges forward in a massive assault.


Image

The gruffs, having resupplied with recovered thorn javelins, hurl another round of the lightweight spears.


Image

Two myconids fall from the attack.


Image

Oberon slices a gelatinous cube into two parts with a spray of acid.


Image

The last spriggan takes a potshot at the end goblin.


Image

The shot downs him rather quickly.


Image

The cavalry squad flanks the enemy with a charge.


Image

The remaining fetch and a shellycobb are chopped to bits.


Image

The rune monoliths drift forward closer to the walls.


Image

Mad Sweeny: Set them up here now! We’re in range of the walls!


Image

The kobolds quickly get to work.


Image

The stone is split into two chunks…


Image

...And dragged to the correct position.


Image

The monoliths are lowered into firing positions, using the rocks as support.



Fomorians:

Image

The sidhe archers now have plenty of targets within their extended range.

Sidhe: Fire!


Image

Two gruffs fall under the hail of arrows…


Image

...As do a pair of the mantis riders.


Image

The remaining myconids combine attacks on a gruff, finishing him off with relative ease.


Image

The shellycobbs are less successful in their attempts.


Image

The owlbear attacks Oberon with its heavy paws, but the sylvan king braces against the attack with his halberd.


Image

The Dullahan and evoker engage the fae knights.


Image

The Dullahan takes down one, and the evoker loses a cube to the other knight’s counterattack.


Image

Balor: Oberon, you were foolish to challenge me in my seat of power! You will die here today, and your people will all bear witness to your failure!


Image

The fachan fires a beam of infernal energy from his single eye.


Image

Oberon: Aargh!


Image

Kobold: The king is wounded!

Knight: Defend the king!


Image

The yeth hound teleports behind the defending troops in pursuit of the retreating fey monarch.


Image

Corrik: No you don’t you creepy-looking mutt!


Image

Mad Sweeny and Captain Corrik’s combined attacks easily dispatch the creature.


Image

The lone revenant chops down the last remaining spriggan.



Fey Support

Image

The faery dragon, now being ridden by Queen Titania, swoops in towards the Fomorian infantry.


Image

Crab legs are on the menu tonight!


Image

The sylphs and beekeepers move up to support.


Image

The sprite beastmaster directs the forest guardian to take down the scout tower.


Image

In their panic to get away, the sidhe critfails his counterattack, and accidentally steps off the back of the tower.


Image

RIP sidhe scout.


Image

Overwatch.

Turn Six

Fey Support:

Image

The faery dragon banks around to attack the Fomorians from the back.


Image

Sidhe: She’s too powerful to take down with arrows! Bring down her beast!


Image

A barrage of arrows causes the poor faery dragon to tumble out of the sky.


Image

Titania: Why you insolent little whelps! I’ll show you!


Image

With a poof, the fair face of the sidhe is suddenly turned into the horrifying head of a spider.

The hapless sidhe reacts accordingly.

Sidhe: SCREEEEEEEE!


Image

The beekeepers massacre the remaining shellycobb and one of the myconids.


Fey Military:

Image

Erlking: Fire the weapons! Now!


Image

Power courses through the air as the monoliths charge their attack.


Image

PEW!

The wall explodes into shrapnel, sending dead archers flying with chunks of jagged black stone sticking out of them


Image

PEW!

Another sidhe is hit directly and turned into a spray of bloody viscera.


Image

PEW!
The final blast blows away another chunk of wall, and puts the spider-sidhe abomination out of its misery.


Image

The final remaining gruff finishes off the myconid, exhausted by the wounds caused by the beekeepers.


Image

The boggans form a row of spears and attack the revenant.


Image

They roll incredibly unluckily, and the revenant counterattacks to behead one of them.


Image

The last svartalf cuts down a Morrigan priestess before she can work any of her dark magic on him.


Image

The Erlking slays the last of his traitorous goblins.


Image

The fae knight attacks the owlbear, and is able to deal one damage to the beast’s massive girth.


Image

Robin: You’re not getting away this time!


Image

Crunch.


Image

The leap attack is enough to finish the young owlbear off for good, its thick skill cracking under the swing of his shillelagh.


Image

Captain Corrik engages with the Dullahan.

Corrik: It’s time to pay for what you did, you no-neck son of a bitch!


Image

But he fails his roll critically! The Dullahan counterattacks mercilessly.

Corrik: Urgh!


Image

Galvyn: CAPTAIN! No!!!


Image

Image

Image

Dullahan: No, foolish human. Now, it is time for you to die alone, without-- Huh? What is--


Image

Peridot Golem: *ROAAAAAAR!*


Image

Dullahan: Wait! No! You can’t!


Image

Dullahan: This can’t be happening! NOOOO!--


Image

CRUNCH.


Image

Mad Sweeny: That’s the openin’ we needed! Quick ya gits! Pull back! Pull back!


Image

The summer troops use all their unused movement to quickly disengage from the fight…


Image

...And the wicker man finally takes its opportunity.


Image

Balor: Gods preserve us…


Image

Image

Image

**ka-BOOOOM!!!**


Image

The wicker man expends all of its hp in a colossal explosion, instantly blowing the revenant to kingdom come, killing the nearby riderless mantis, and setting a Morrigan priestess ablaze in a giant fireball…


Image

...As well as burning the banshee and grimalkin to cinders and hurling Balor and the last priestess to the ground, wounded and disrupted.


Image

With all but four Fomorian troops dead and the rest in no shape to fight, the siege of Arctis Tor ends, with the Fey alliance victorious!


Image

Final Overwatch.


Image

Bonus 1: Overwatch with all living figures removed.


Image

Bonus 2: All the gathered blood used in this fight. I literally ended up exhausting my entire supply.

Epilogue:

Image

Image

Robin: That’s it then? The Fomorian rebellion is over?

Titania: Indeed it is. And not a moment too soon, either. This mutinous nonsense has gone on far longer than proper. Balor will pay for his crimes in short order.


Image

Erlking: He should be paying right now, with his life! The backstabbing bastard is too dangerous to keep alive, we should separate his traitorous head from his neck where he stands!


Image

Galvyn: We need to keep him alive though, we’ll need to sit him down and interrogate him about why he wanted the seal out of our village, and where he’s hidden it!


Image

Balor: Ha! Foolish boy. The seal is long gone, I have no more use for it, and you will learn nothing from me. You are all unprepared for the horrors that await you at the hands of the heralds of Ragnablok, and your foolishness will be your undoing!


Image

Galvyn: Is there any way to shut him up?

Robin: Oh let him let out all of his hot air, he won’t have much of it left when Mab gets her hands on him!


Image

Erlking: Speaking of Mab… Guard! Search the fortress’ inner sanctums, find where Mab is being held and release her at once.

Svartalf: As you command my lord.


Image

Corrik: Oof, thanks dollface.

Sylph: rolls eyes


Image

Galvyn: Captain! All healed up I see?

Corrik: Fit as a fiddle my boy! By the way, I saw you dropped your sword when you worked that bit of magic back there, I had a gruff soldier retrieve it for me.

Galvyn: Thank you!

Corrik: What was that anyway? I didn’t know you had that kind of power in you!


Image

Galvyn: I’m not sure. I just felt the power surge into me from the staff all the sudden and just acted on instinct.

Corrik: Well whatever it was, I’m damn grateful.

Galvyn: So now what? We still need to find out what’s actually going on here with these seals…

Robin: Well, once Mab is found and freed, you will be able to meet with her on the matter this Warden told you to speak to her of.


Image

Galvyn: Will she actually agree to meet with us?

Titania: The Winter Court owes you and your companions a great debt of gratitude, for it was largely due to your prompting that she was rescued at all.

Erlking: Aye, Mab is cold and harsh, but she is honorable, and will certainly provide you with an audience. Plus, with as serious as this sounds, she may be just as interested to hear your side of the story as well.

Galvyn: Well then, the sooner, the better. The longer we wait, the more likelihood of something--


Image

Galvyn: Gah!

Robin: Galvyn!


Image

Balor: Greater Teleportation!


Image

ker-


Image

ZOP!


Image

Corrik: Galvyn! Hold on!

Robin: Quickly! Someone fetch a healer immediately!


Image

Corrik: Galvyn! Stay with us! Galvyn!


Image

Corrik: Galvyn!


Image

Fun - 19 - Definitely nailed the Wow Factor with the Wicker Man and the overall scale. Only complaint is that the armies are too far apart in the beginning.
Violence - 10 - Lots of violence of all varieties
Photography - 7 - some out-of-focus pictures and weird angles, but mostly clear what's going on
Writing - 9 - That epilogue is something else
Story - 9 - Yes, there is story.
I make apocalypses and apocalypse accessories.

Fun: The builds, the gameplay, the actions. Everything here is awesome. 19.
Violence: Lots of carnage, with some especially fantastic affects. I see what you did there with those monolith blasts and that's neat. 10.
Photography: Some of the shots are grainy and a bit out of focus, but it wasn't all that distracting. 8.
Writing: The writing with the flow of the battle was neat and the dialogue was entertaining. 9.

EDIT: Story: 10

Very pleased with how epic this battle was.

To be honest, Bookwyrm, given the uniqueness of these Axeleron factions, I often lose track of who is fighting on whose side. In the writing for this battle, I was able to keep it straight the whole time.

Just wonderful.

Fun I really enjoyed reading this report, it was a more serious type of brikwar that I am not used to, but that is a welcome change. I could see the fun you had shine through the report as well 19
Violence Hell yeah, you killed a main character 10
Photography Agreeing with N_B 7
Writing Rich and substantial storyline, I can tell that this battle has serious lore implications that I would love to learn more about. 10

Edit :Story 10

Damn, there's not a single generic looking minifig here, all are cool-looking and unique, and those MOCs! :D Just pure eye candy. :tiger: The value of those assembled minifigs must be through the roof, it's like watching plastic gold clash.

You have some really good-looking fantasy forces at battle here! That wicker man is awesome, the dullahan is awesome, everything is awesome! :tiger: I have to check out the earlier battles as well now. Epic and very unique - very creative parts usage.

EDIT: I really like the lore you have created as well. The forces being divided by seasons is very fitting to the fairytale setting.
NO!THERE ARE NO POLAR BEARS IN FINLAND!!!
