[Anno] No peace, just war

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.

[Anno] No peace, just war

Image

After the chaos of the preceding months and the takeover of the primitive planet, a diplomatic banquet is held by the Orsator Contingency. Many diplomats from nearby systems and their newfound vassals have arrived to negotiate with the newfound power.

Calar Ghorin sits on his throne and irons out the terms of the vassalage with the lords of the planet.

Image

Sir Talbor: I don't think you understand here, sir. We can't spare 3so much of our population from farming duties, your enlistment quota is simply too high. Perhaps you could lower it?

Calar Ghorin: I don't think you understand, sir, that we need a proper standing army. Do you see these diplomats? Most of their country's armies are frothing at the mouth to come at us, despite their pretences of civility, and if you refuse to give us these soldiers they'll make your lives miserable.

Image

Suddenly, the roof smashes inwards and several masked soldiers enter from the roof, instantly killing one of Sir Talbor's guards.

???: Don't kill the diplomats, only the leader and his vassals! We don't want another diplomatic incident!

Image

Diplomats immediately start running for cover, an Orsator guard is decapitated and the other guards begin attacking the intruders.

Image

Calar Ghorin begins wrestling down an enemy soldier, while the leader's attack on Sir Talbor is only deflected by his heavy armour.

Unidentified diplomat: It's the Han Khan! Get out of here!

Image

Calar Ghorin guts the soldier with his own sword, and Sir Talbar is knocked down.

Calar Ghorin: Han Khan eh? You'll pay dearly for this.

Image

Han Khan leader:This isn't going to plan, retreat!

The Han Khan leader lines up a shot at a diplomat.

Image

Lieutenant Harlo jumps in the way at the last moment, taking a punishing shot straight to the chest, and crumples to the ground.

Image

The two Han Khan soldiers escape the way they came in.

Image

Calar Ghorin quickly runs over to check on his fallen friend, but he's too late. Harlo has lost consciousness and it's only a matter of time before he passes away.

Calar Ghorin: I'm so sorry I couldn't save you, I'm so sorry I'm so sorry I'm so sorry

To be continued...
The real Piltogg was the friends we made along the way.
