Campaign Update: Autumn 999

Tropilium carelessly lost an emperor in the summer, but the new emperor is a real firebrand devoted to making Tropilium great again. Pundits round the agora think he may well have been indulging in the divine ambrosia a little too much, and are already getting into production the usual range of trinkets and souvenirs that invading armies are made bankrupt by.

Mirish continues its invasion of Mangu. General Pereira has repeatedly been heard telling anyone who will listen that Mangu represents the greatest threat to Mirish security that Talomir has ever known. It has been reported that his dislike of Mangu stems from their preference for preserved nectarines over the more proper fresh nectarines.

The treaty between Tereken and Treyine ends this season and already the Tereken army seeks to take advantage of Treyine being distracted by Tropilium. They board their longships and launch an assault on Treyine at the first opportunity.

Treyine chooses to ignore the Tereken incursion for now in favour of completing their current plans.

Mater Dies - Treyine vs Tropilium - Summer 999

Hi All,

Late again. :(

Anyways here's the latest battle report. Remember to right click and open image in new tab to see them fully embiggened.

The battle was over quickly when I rolled a 6 for leader at risk after the legion took 1 hit. Unfortunately the legionnaires of Tropilium are fairly brittle, and I didn't take that into account. I also had a situation with the Wind Maiden ships. The troops in them failed their enemy threat tests and so one routed and one retired. I'm not sure if I played it right. I honestly don't really care for the wind maiden at this point, but she's on the list.

I was looking forward to the Heroic combat that was about to take place, but then the whole leader lost thing happened and it went from bad to worse for Tropilium.

In the ensuing major pursuit Tropilium lost two legionaries. But not the generals unit. Is this the end for Tropilium?

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.
