The Fifth Azurian Pretzel War

Post by Sir Sporktimus » Mon Apr 20, 2015 5:38 pm

With another player joining in, and all of them with accounts on-site now, I think this qualifies as a Forum Battle, and as such the continuation will be over here:

Image

On the distant planetoid of Azure, the only resources are what has drifted from the stars to accumulate on the asteroid's surface. A kind of artifact prized above all others, however, are Soft Pretzels. Only turning up on the planet once every few hundred years, a fortress could be bought with the market value of a single pretzel. Legend tells of one such pretzel, lost to history as the Royal Azure Imperium was forced to abandon its outposts in the Eastern Realm due to the overpowering force of the Dragonblood Knights at the time. However, the Pretzel they sought to protect was left unnoticed at the ruin of an old watchtower.. and it is said to remain there to this day, guarded by fierce monsters of the wild.

Hundreds of Years Later


Image

A large, cantankerous vehicle known by environmentalists as 'monstrosity' and to the passengers as 'grandpa's truck' comes to a creaking stop outside of a patch of swampland, fumes pouring out the back of the vehicle as its occupants disembark.

"Daddy, I'm hungry!"

"Well, daddy's little princess always get what she wants. Let's see.. ah, there's a pretzel over there I think.."

"Pretzel! Pretzel!"

"If you want the pretzel, than I'll get you the pretzel. Come on."

Image

The Hillbillies arrive on the Board.From left to right: Austin (Knife enthusiast), Billy (Gun Enthusiast), Uncle Joe (axe-wielding dwarf), Daddy's Princess, Paw, and Maw. Grandpa's Truck is armed with a missile launcher on top manned by Austin, along with a massive catapult for launching car parts from the storage chests, controlled by Maw. It takes a turn to load the catapult and another to fire it.

Image

Meanwhile, a spec-ops force is assembling on the other side of the swamp, an all-terrain trike rolling up as the captain of the group briefs the others on their coming mission. Skylink Commandos arrive on the Board.

"Alright, men! There's a valuable artifact here, and it's our job to snag it. Move out, and shoot anything that moves."

"Yessir!"

Image

The Skylink Commandos consist of one Medic armed with a Medical Tool and a Short-range weapon, two soldiers with a rifle and two pistols, Captain Skylink and his plasma rifle with bayonet, two melee soldiers with chainsaws and barbed shields, and the T-3 Trike with two short-range plasma beams and one 2" cannon. The Captain is also carrying three explosive charges, which he may place and set to time anywhere on the board. If he dies, however, they will go off autmotically.

Image

Sensing the activity happening on the planetside below, a squadron of Blue Heliad Sciences troops, led by Captain Lance Amadeus Silversun, beams down. Blue Heliad Sciences Corp., First Battle Division arrives on the board. "The Royal Azure Imperium has been our ally for a long time now, troops. We need to protect and return this artifact. Ready your weapons!"

Image

Blue Heliad's group is small, but armored, with the MW-1 Daedalus, Captain Lance Silversun, two soldiers with pulse cannons and one armed with a chainsaw and shield.

Image

And so the battle begins..

Turn order is Hillbillies, Skylink Commandos, Blue Heliad Sciences, Wildlife.
