Westeron Restored - Chapter II: Terror In The Empire

Post by Bragallot » Sat Feb 08, 2020 7:28 am

Imperial heartlands, on the Kingdom's western border...

Image

With reports of Bulls threatening the border in greater numbers, the Empire is mobilizing.

Image

As the Kingdom of Westeron's most powerful (and most threatened) vassal state, they can raise a considerable army.

Image

Reports of mysterious attacks have prompted imperial officers to guard their armouries more closely, as the loss of valuable weapons and armour will cripple their army against the coming Bull invasion.

Image

Suddenly...

Image

*splat*

Image

"We're under attack!"

Image

"To arms!"

Image

A monstrous undead giant charges into combat.

Image

The beast is eventually overcome.

Image

The wraith leading the attack approaches the armoury with some rather explosive minions in tow.

Image

The defending lieutenant, Branton, and his men load up a cannon.

Image

"Fire!"

Image

The shot gets dangerously close to blowing up the explosive chest the skeletons are carrying.

Image

The wraith smashes his magical sword into the ground.

Image

His dark magic has devastating results.

Image

An imperial tries what he can to plug the hole in the wall.

Image

The wraith then launches himself into combat, chopping at the guards.

Image

The remaining guards rush out to defend.

Image

They foolishly charge the explosive chest, which blows up in their faces.

Image

The others are assailed by a group of Shades, dangerous elite undead.

Image

Shades make for nimble and skilled opponents, as these guards find out.

Image

They are overcome.

Image

However, the imperials are not alone in this! A Dweller Ranger arrives and occupies the Shades.

Image

Zing!

Image

An Armour Ghost appears, but luckily, it's friendly.

Image

With the odds turning against the undead, the wraith sacrifices himself, but for what purpose?

Image

To cause an explosion, of course!

Image

Image

The brave ranger is eventually overcome.

Image

However, a Dweller Healer arrives to support the fight.

Image

"Rush out! We need to keep that man alive!"

Image

Together, they are able to overcome the shades.

Image

The dust settles. Despite substantial casualties and damage to the armoury, the equipment has mostly been preserved.

Lieutenant Branton invites the Dweller Healer in for questioning...

Image

Branton: "Who are you?"

Dweller Healer: "I'm a messenger. The appearance of these undead at the eve of the Bull invasion is no coincidence! A full scale invasion of the borderlands is underway as we speak, and your people and my own are the only ones who stand in its way! Queen Lara is hunted by Bulls beyond the border and requires rescuing."

Branton: "How do you know all this, and why do you wish to help?"

Dweller: "There will be time to explain, if we survive. For now you must help me convince Sir Knight-Marshal Cales to lead an expedition into the Wildwoods."

Branton: "Sir Cales...? Very well. I will arrange an audience with the Knight-Marshal for you, but I can give you no guarantees as to what he'll decide."

End of Chapter II
