  9. SGWA's Slow Grow Narrative League.

    First I want to thank Ryan for a most exciting and fun game. He destroyed my army, but with a bold go for broke move and some luck with the dice I managed to pull out a victory in the end. For our league players, because of how the game played out, I have elected not to take any promotions or artifacts from this battle as the narrative is much better without doing so, as you will see. I hope you all enjoy my attempt at a narrative: Herthgar, Runesmiter for clan Vultrex paused in his calling on the power of the magma to tunnel beneath the battlefield. His eyes closed as he concentrated, and his thoughts went to what must be happening above. Herthgar led a small elite band of vulkite bezerkers and was tunneling far behind the enemies front lines. His task was to destroy the wood aelf artifact that was being used in some foul ritual to actually awaken the very forest in this region. If they succeeded Clan Vultrex's campaign in these woods would be stalled at best and ended at worst. Even now many a brave fyreslayer was preparing a frontal assault on the wood aelves forces, a charge doomed to fail; but that was the plan. Those warriors and heroes had volunteered to be the bait knowing they would likely die. Just as these brave lads behind him had, and most if not all of them were doomed as well. "Is something amiss Runesmiter Herthgar?" The question pulled him back to moment and had been raised by Arthger the Karl of this vulkite band and his longtime friend. "No, Arthgar... nothing is wrong. I simply must be sure of our position and the timing or all is lost." Arthger looked very serious as he replied, "nothing is lost if we fight well." "Aye, you are right my friend", Herthgar replied "but fret not for Grimnir sent me a vision this morning and you shall fight very well indeed my old friend... very well indeed." Herthgar closed his eyes and reached his mind and spirit into the very earth. He could feel the ebb and flow of the strength and power of the ground around him and through it could sense the forces above surging forward. He sensed the ground open several hundred yards from his current position. That would be Mizgran his brother bringing the unit of Auric Hearthgaurd within magmapike range of the aelves. He smiled as thought of the surprise and damage that would be inflicted upon their lines before they could react, still he knew it would not be enough. "To Grimnir's Forge brother" he thought. The time had come, he called on the power of the earth and its magma as he tunneled upward now. Suddenly the earth opened before him and daylight flooded in upon the vulkites around him. They surged out of the tunnel forming their line quickly. Herthgar looked around quickly his positioning was nearly perfect, but the aelves had not entirely taken the bait. The artifact was before them with the wizard working his incantations, but another unit of warriors was quickly moving to intercept the vulkites. Arthgar, also surveying the field, gave a great shout. "For Grimnir and Clan Vultrex!" as he and his vulkites charged the wizard and the vulkites. Herthgar watched his friend for a moment, then began running not for the battle, but to the artifact. It was his task to destroy the focus of the ritual for all their clan's hopes lay on destroying it. The battle surged swiftly around him as he made his last dash to the stone artifact, and he searched it with his spirit and mind. It was powerful, but it was old stone and old stones have their cracks. He quickly found the spot he needed and pulled his Latchkey axe from his back. As he raised the weapon to strike he was distracted as he caught sight of his friend Arthgar. The aelves, war dancers, had slain the rest of his vulkites and surrounded him. It had been at this moment that Arthgar's defenses had failed him and two swords pierced him in the side and back. Arthgar saw Herthgar staring at him and blood spattered from his mouth as he shouted, "GRIMNIR'S BEARD... STRIKE NOW!" Herthgar struck and stone cracked and split. In blast hot white light the artifact shattered and fell to the ground. The ritual could not be completed. Herthgar and his warband had succeeded. Herthgar, wood aelves approaching him now from all sides, looked back to Arthgar. Arthgar fell to one knee as the leader of the war dancers raised his blade for killing blow, and his mouth moved as he tried to speak blood flowing down from his lips into his beard. Herthgar could swear he heard a whisper of his friend's voice reach him, "Fight well, indeed." Arthgar smiled at Herthgar his bloody teeth showing as the blade fell. A dozen or more aelf blades were raised to strike Herthgar, but he did not raise his weapon in defense. He only thought, "I'll see you in Grimnir's Forge my friend... soon. Then Herthgar thought no more.

    Torgun stood upon the battlements with the Hearthguard Bezerkers, as he watched the approach of Ungaro and his warband of Khorne followers. He smiled inspite of himself, knowing that plans had well been laid for the retribution due Ungaro. Gothrek and his Auric Hearthguard were even now on their way to flank the Khorne warband. Gothrek, using his ability to control the flow of magma beneath the earth to quickly tunnel into position. "Ungaro" Torgun shouted from the battlements, "I do hope that chest your warriors carry is our payment! Our contract is completed the Aelves have been defeated. "It is!" was Ungaro's only reply. "Good that keeps things simple. I only have one oath against you then," Torgun shouted back. Ungaro, feigning surprise replied, "An oath against me... whatever could the cause of that?" Ungaro smiled and nodded to his champions and his warriors... soon there would be more blood for Khorne. His units began to spread out, taking up position to attack from multiple sides. "You sent us into a trap, with the intent that you could avoid payment if we all fell in battle, and I am afraid that cannot be allowed to go unanswered. So set the Ur Gold down and come receive your payment for the betrayal." Torgun thumbed the edge of his axe as he spoke. "Ungaro ordered his men to charge and shouted to Torgun, your numbers are much reduced by the fighting with the Aelves and while your warriors fight well, your blood flow for Khorne and we will take your skulls for his throne." Torgun, smiled as his Hearthguard Bezerkers took positions to defend the walls. "No Ungaro, today you blood flows," he whispered to himself as he charged down the battlements and out of the watchtower into the thick of the fight. He pulled strength and fury from the many Ur Gold runes hammered into his flesh and fell into the battle frenzy he knew so well. Many Bloodwarriors would fall to his axe today. As planned Gothrek and his Auric Hearthguard erupted from the ground just as Ungaro's warriors assaulted the walls of the watchtower, and they blasted them time and again with magmapikes until their lines collapsed and they were forced back. Vulkite Bezerkers streamed from hiding places in the ruins surrounding the watchtower to close off the escape of any fleeing Bloodbound. Torgun faught his way through nearly a dozen warriors and cut down two of Ungaro's heroes. As the last fell, he turned to face Ungaro, only to see the Khorne Warlord falling back with what little remained of his warband, the chest of Ur Gold still sitting on the ground where Ungaro had been. His battle rage gone, Torgun walked over to chest as Gothrek approached. Together they opened the chest to reveal their payment, and Gothrek smiled as he looked at Torgun. "Are you going after him?" Torgun shrugged, "we have been paid what is owed us, and I have paid my debt to him."

  14. SGWA's Slow Grow Narrative League.

    Ryan and I played the Watch Tower Battleplan this past weekend. I managed to achieved a major victory, but only because the game ended with a lucky roll for me at the end of round 3. One more round and I think all would have been lost for my Fyreslayers. Below is the narrative. Runeson Rangtor grimaced as he surveyed the land before him. This would not be easy. He and his clan had finally caught up with the Wood Aelves that had so ravaged Torgun's war band, and now had them cornered in a watchtower. He knew they had sent word of his army's arrival to request reinforcements; the time to strike was now. With a nod he ordered his forces to charge the stronghold. It had been a long and bloody day for both sides. As expected reinforcements did arrive for the Aelves of the outpost, but it had been too late to be of help. By the time they reached the tower, Rangtor, Drakor, Torgun and their Fyreslayers had taken the watchtower and entrenched themselves. Still it had been a close thing, even a few minutes sooner and Rangtor's forces would have been caught between the hammer and the anvil, as Runemaster Gungrim was fond of saying. Still the contract with Ungaro had been fulfilled. It was time to collect the Ur Gold payment and to pay an Oath Debt to that particular warlord.

    Torgun Shieldbreaker cursed as Vulkites Berzerker stitched his wound. This day had not gone as planned. He spat blood into the fire as he looked around at his much depleted Fyreslayer patrol. Ungaro had lied to him, this had not been a solitary band of tree living Aelves, it had been a sizable force. He should have expected no less from a follower of Khorne, but the offer of Ur Gold had been real. "I'll have my revenge on Ungaro, Torgun growled. I swear it!" Earlier that day: The small band of 20 Aelves or so were right where Ungaro had told him and Torgun surveyed the ground. He turned to Drakor Runesmiter, "We will distract them here and here." He pointed to the improvised map drawn on the ground. "You tunnel up to here with your Auric Hearthguard and open fire into their ranks. We will follow up with a charge and this fight will be over before it starts. Any questions? Good, tonight we will be dividing a chest of Ur Gold." Leading his Hearthguard Bezerkers and the Vulkite Beserkers made enough noise to draw the fire of the wood Aelves as they advanced. Focusing fire on his Vulkites, the Aelves never saw the tunneling Auric Hearthguard until it was too late. Exploding from the ground Drakor took up position with the Auric Hearthguard and opened fire. The magmapikes roared as fist sized balls of molten rock slammed into the Aelve Archers. A dozen fell in an instant and Torgun shouted at his Vulkites to charge, but in the fog of battle they did not hear his command and continued their march across open ground toward the Aelves. Torgun grimaced as another stitch was pulled to close his wound. That was when this attack turned poorly. Out of the very trees around his men wood Aelves appeared and the sun seemed to blocked from view by the sheer volume of arrows. The Auric Hearthguard were all slain. As quickly as they had killed... they were all dead. Drakor did not escape unscathed, so grave were his injuries that even now he might die. This had been no small band of wood aelves. This had been an ambush. Yes... Torgun vowed an oath he would have his revenge on Ungaro, but first... "Harfgor, send a runner to Runeson Rangtar. Ask him to send the clan, we have a contract to kill some Aelves." To the rest of his band he spoke, "Get some rest lads tomorrow we start tracking these pointy eared Aelves." Yes, he would fulfill his oath of revenge against Ungaro, but first the contract must be completed. After all an oath is an oath, but Ur Gold is Ur Gold.
