The bony battering ram pulls back, and the skeletons rush the gate!
The forest critters are on their heels.
The Lionmane soldiers prepare to face attacks from all sides... can they hold?
King Leonard stands up.
The peasants are coming!
Outside, the wine merchant is joined by the apple thowers, as they assail the Tauro king and princess!
The Tauro horde spills over onto the wall.
(Meanwhile king Angelo and his soldiers climb the stairs to the keep - seems like that picture disappeared.)
The wine merchant gets an opportunity stab at king Feridonando, but he shrugs it off, and ascends the siege tower.
"Father, that living archer damaged your staff. The powers of the Hexblade will restore it!"
"Crania, wait! It's going to - "
" - overload!"
A skeleton is blown apart by the magical explosion, and another is accidentally smashed by the Hexblade.
Arkan and Crania are fine though.
Princess Leonora comes up with a clever plan to trick the Tauro brutes.
"Whomsoever catches this bouquet, shall be my spouse!"
She throws the bouquet, over their heads!
But not far enough!
"Princess... I am honored by your offer."
"I shall marry you. If you will have me."
"Why... yes! Yes!"
"Come with me! There is a chapel not far from here!"
"I hereby pronounce you husband and wife."
"Oh, I'm so happy, Fabioro!"
"So am I, Leonora!"
"I suppose we'll have to postpone the honeymoon until after the siege, though..."
The pig oinks at the Swine Demon. Perhaps there is still some kinship between these creatures?
The Swine Demon leaps at king Arkan, and tears him in half!
The demon grunts in mad glee!
King Arkan whispers, as unlife leaves him:
"Crania... my daughter... the task is now yours. I know you will not fail..."
"It will be done, father! Death will reign over all!"
Princess Crania is now the leader of House Osteas. It is up to her to sit the Red Throne.
Sakura decides to get these annoying peasants off her back.
A ferocious warhowl sends the peasants running in panic!
The magic death laser fires at princess Rosanna, but it misses.
The Lionmane halberdiers in the courtyard stand firm against the skeletons. They hack apart one of them, as well as a Corona soldier!
On the wall, a Tauro warrior is decapitated.
King Leonard crosses blades with a peasant, but doesn't get through.
The critters are kept at bay by this skeleton.
The Mechanik was going to drop the roof of the treasury on the heads of the Corona soldiers, but they ran past too fast. So now he has a new idea.
He rebuilds the roof into a huge swatter! Just as deadly as a falling roof, but with much longer reach!
These peasants throw their zombie fish at princess Rosanna! A soldier leaps in the way of them, and is chewed to death.
As king Leonard fights, a wine goblet comes flying into the melee!
It shatters his skull!
"I did it! I killed the king!"
Princess Leonora inherits House Lionmane, and the Red Throne... but can she get there in time?
This peasant whacks the Lionmane Mechanik with his broom again. The Mechanik is fine.
The Corona trebuchet changes targets!
The Osteas magic laser turret is smashed to pieces.
The peasants pay dearly for killing the Corona soldier with zombie fish. Rosanna shoots one of them, and her soldier cuts down another.
King Angelo and his soldiers sprint into the Yellow Keep.
A Lionmane guard is killed by a Tauro warrior, and king Feridonando sprints into the thick of the action!
Sakura grabs a two-handed axe from a fallen Tauro fighter.
