[Cymmeron] The Laughter of Fate: Chapter 1

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

[Cymmeron] The Laughter of Fate: Chapter 1

For 9 centuries and 90 years, the faithful orders have stood between the peoples of Cymmeron and total destruction by the agents of chaos, a great bulwark against the night.

Image
As my 13th winter in this world began, I was sent with other children of my village to a desolate outpost of the order. Many of us perished in the rituals ahead but I survived triumphant, to be sealed into the armour of faith, to forsake my previous identity and become one with the forces of order.

Image
Today, as the 991st year of the Kingdom dawns, we assemble into a mighty warhost. A sorcerous warband has struck the capital, causing great terror and capturing the royal heir. Such a brazen incursion cannot and will not go unpunished.

Image
Reciting our ancient war chants, we join battle with the accursed ones. They scatter before us, torn asunder by our ancient blades.

Image
I follow a stumbling coward through the forest, cleaving in his skull only to find myself alone in the shadow of an enormous demon surrounded by its lesser brethren.


With grim determination, I steel myself for a warrior’s death and charge the monster with sword in hand.

TO BE CONTINUED

Great way to use the rendering software, the storytelling and perspective of the images are amazing.

Zee is back it seems, and with her usual amazing content! I love the unique perspective and the choice to do fully digital is really interesting!
