Cannons and Caster - Mangu and Mirish to the Death

I played the Mirish side and rolled for the Mangu battle plan at random. Feigned Flight worked very well as it forced my cavalry to chase the skirmishers, taking casualties as they did. The cannon did considerable damage, more than I've ever seen before. Lucky for me the Casters did a good job.

Campaign Update - Summer 999

Treyine has split Tropilium in two, but the fight spirit that forged an empire remains strong in the Tropilian people and they resolve to go down swinging if go down they must.

The peace treaty between Mirish and Mangu ends. It is no surprise then that both nations mass their armies on their borders for immediate reprisals against their hated enemies. Mirish takes the initiative though, and launches an invasion of Mangu.

Treyine Invades Tropilium - Spring 999

Well that took an awful long time!

Sorry for the delay. The game went fairly smoothly once I dug out my figures and a place to play. I need to get my games and figures better organized. (Ass usual you can right click and open them ina new tab to see them full sized.)

Comic Life had a new update and added some more templates. I don't recall seeing this one before. The program is still maddeningly laggy, but gives nice results. I hadn't noticed before, but I was able to do some exposure correction on the images. For some reason I have been unable to take properly exposed snap shots.

But I digress. The War Horn of Nazgoth was a very powerful tool for Tropilium. But the Knights were just too tough for the Legionaries. The battle also lasted quite awhile due to the number of ones I rolled in melee for both sides.

Tropilium loses the Archers and Auxiliary Archers in the pursuit, but I guess it's a moot point since the nation was conquered. At least they went out swinging.

Spring 999 - Campaign Update

With the fall of Stygustan, only six nations remain. The winter was peaceful, but the victory over Stygustan has reignited the warlike hearts of the Treyine people. Tropilium is their target. All other nations remain at peace for now ...

Winter 998 - Campaign Update

Once the mightiest and most enlightened empire on Talomir, Stygustan is no more, a victim of the international desire to control the nectarine trade and production.
"Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair"
With Stygustan defeated, peace reigns over Talomir, enforced by legally binding treaties for the time being.

Death Checks
A minor (Level 1) wizard of the Mirish army choked and died on a nectarine stone.

No other personalities died this winter.

Magic Items
Tereken has found the Pipes of the Dead

Holy Relics
Altengard has recovered the Spear of St Lindorf.

Treyine vs Stygustan - Autumn 998 - In the shade of arrows

Hi All,

A fairly quick battle that took me embarrassingly long to just sit down and hash out.

You can see them very large if you right click and open the image in a new tab.

The only way that Stygustan had a chance was to use their magic advantage. The demon and blast spells seemed to be the right direction, but I let the generals unit get to close and massed bow fire is just deadly.

The Stygustanis lost the infantry and archer in the pursuit but they were conquered anyway.

This one ended up being a bit of fun because my son helped me roll dice and push troops around. Still trying to get him hooked.

Autumn 998 - Campaign Update

The ancient empire of Stygustan, home of the oldest gods of Talomir lies in ruins, its nectarine orchards now controlled by the dastardly General Pereira, whose lust for the delights of this fruit knows no bounds. Meanwhile, the Mangu army drinks kumis and licks its wounds after a hard-fought battle that nearly meant a heroic defeat under the chariot wheels of the effete Stygustani.

With the collapse of Stygustan, Talomir's fields are briefly quiet, untrampled by any armies until rumblings are heard from Treyine. Wind maiden ships appear over the horizon flying above the colourful standards of the Treyine nobility. Treyine has seen an opportunity and plans to pluck the last of the nectarine orchards before General Pereira can do so. Will Stygustan still be a sovereign nation by the winter? Only time will tell.

For the rest of Talomir, all nations are bound by treaties sworn in the presence of the gods. Peace must reign there, or the gods will wish to know why not.
