    Monday August 26, Between Willow Creek and Tallow



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Wyrd love her Codexers and they are still alive. Unfortunately we didn't get any new guys so we are still sticking to the same team.

    [​IMG]

    Our objective is to get this Rurik guy to "safety of Tallow" and when Myth says that something is safe it means it's going to get horribly raped soon.

    [​IMG]

    "THRALLS!" Azira screamed even though he never saw a thrall before.

    [​IMG]

    Oh god, nooo.

    [​IMG]

    Codexers assumed defensive position and prepared themselves for upcoming onslaught. I don't even know if thing I just said makes any fucking sense in english but it sure sounds cool.

    [​IMG]

    Mrowak told his men to stop wasting arrows on Thralls and start shooting Ghols.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    BOOM! fuckers are pretty much dealt with.

    [​IMG]

    And now we can send our warriors to clean up mess dorfs made.

    [​IMG]

    "SOULLESS!" Eklektyk screamed even though he probably never saw them before.

    [​IMG]

    Normally ghasts and Soulless wouldn't be so much of a problem but we have to watch out for Rurik (we don't control him).

    [​IMG]

    Thanks to the fact that we survived two mission without casualties Mrowak's finest are doing great against soulless.

    [​IMG]

    More Thralls, and they are behind us. Normally we could just keep retreating but yeah... Rurik.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, enough fucking around, we have to use warriors.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We need to gain enough time for Rurik to stop being retarded and then shall retreat our warriors.

    [​IMG]

    There is really no point in prolonged melee with Thralls. Berskerkers could do that, Heron Guard could all kinds of do that, but warriors? not really.

    [​IMG]

    We managed to split this wave of Thralls in two.

    [​IMG]

    And rurik seems to be safe, and that's my main concern here.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Holy shit, that was beautiful.

    [​IMG]

    But now our warriors have to fight again.

    [​IMG]

    Azira is badly wounded so I will try to get him out of there.

    [​IMG]

    CASUALTY! Man who survived TFL events was unfrotunately first to die in Soulblighter.

    [​IMG]

    And then we lost another generic-warrior and one archer.

    [​IMG]

    ... And then our dorf assploded another non-codexer warrior. Well, fuck.

    [​IMG]

    But we survived and we can continue our Rocky Road to Tallow.

    [​IMG]

    Everyone is badly wounded and soulless started to pop out from the woods after we made only few steps.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Warrior Gareth managed to deal with one that popped out close to us but Mrowak is on his own with this one on the left. Our warriors are too badly wounded to dance with soulless.

    [​IMG]

    "THRALLS!" screamed everyone.

    [​IMG]

    Oh god, no.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh god, yes.

    [​IMG]

    But Gareth got hit by something and died. Or simply had heart-attack.

    [​IMG]

    "SO FEW OF US, BY THE WYRD, SO FEW" screamed everyone while dorfs were busy assploding shit left and right.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Dorfs did what they could, now warriors have to finish those thralls.

    [​IMG]

    They did it, and no one died! (Well, Gareth died but that was a heart-attack).

    [​IMG]

    Well, that doesn't look like fucking trap at all!

    [​IMG]

    Fall back!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Obvious river trap is obvious even without meta-game knowledge.

    [​IMG]

    Way is clear and we can continue.

    [​IMG]

    REFLEKSHUN!

    [​IMG]

    Oh-o, this looks like job for Mrowak.

    [​IMG]

    We have one healthy warrior so he shall help killing soulless. We can't send anynone else because one javelin could kill them.

    [​IMG]

    Told ya, one warrior just got killed by stray javelin.

    [​IMG]

    And now archer went down. Fortunately that wasn't Mrowak.

    [​IMG]

    Mrowak managed to kill soulless while avoiding javelins and we can continue our merry way.

    [​IMG]

    IS THIS TELOUW YET?! I HOPE NOET BECUSE IT DOESN'T LOOK SAFE, LIEK, AT ALL.

    [​IMG]

    Nope, it's not Tallow and we have a tail.

    [​IMG]

    DraQ, Eklektyk... I'm sorry, you have to be sacrificed. There is no other way (Rurik is too retarded to just run for the gate).

    [​IMG]

    But we prepared some exploding peasants to cheer you up before you die!

    [​IMG]

    AND DON'T TRY THIS "WHOS THERE?!" BULLSHIT! JUST OPEN THE GATES FOR WYRD SAKE!

    [​IMG]

    Ignore the thralls, just open the gates!

    [​IMG]

    Awww shieet, and there goes Codexers!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Those newfags have to clear the way for what is left of our group before more Ghols arrive.

    [​IMG]

    Tindrli and Mrowak are still with us though.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That was actually pretty hard mission and our casualties were not done on purpose. I reloaded a lot but I just couldn't do any better than this. Well, at least we have room for new recruits :M

    Well, you can probably make a dorf out of what's left if you insist.

    Tuesday September 2, Near Brayle



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I told you that Tallow is going to get raped...

    [​IMG]

    Penetrate, ok... sneak your "invisible dwarf" into the castle?! is this game mocking me...

    [​IMG]

    We have new warriors with us, undoubtly Legion's finest - Joka, Ovg, Imperator and Hoodoo.

    [​IMG]

    And Sergiu64 the bowmen.

    [​IMG]

    We didn't get any berserkers yet or any more dwarfs so rest of you still have to wait.

    [​IMG]

    Baron's castle is near but it looks like we will have to fight to get there.

    [​IMG]

    Few Ghols shouldn't be much of a problem though, unless they carry some assploding shit.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They are throwing shit at us but it's not exploding so I'll get over it.

    [​IMG]

    Ghols run around us in some kind of Gholish Cantabrian circle but with the amount of warriors we have we don't have any weak spots.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I think we are done with first wave. Now we shall regroup and see if there are more of them.

    [​IMG]

    There were three or four but we killed them easily and we may start looking for Baron's castle.

    [​IMG]

    We reached village walls but village seems empty, suspicious.

    [​IMG]

    I think we have found former villagers supported by some Baron's bowmen... RETREAT!

    [​IMG]

    Ok, Joka, here's the deal. You have to go there, aggro some thralls so Mrowak and Sergiu can shoot them and then GTFO, allright? We count on you so don't fuck this up... Oh, and watch for Baron's bowmen.

    [​IMG]

    SERPENTINE PATTERN JOKA! SERPENTINE PATTERN!

    [​IMG]

    FLAMING ARROWS JOKA! GO LEFT! MY LEFT!

    [​IMG]

    That's my boy! now... DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!

    [​IMG]

    Joka, try to lure some thralls into the fire!

    [​IMG]

    Oh, they don't seem to retreat this time. Joka, gtfo from there. Rest of you prepare!

    [​IMG]

    Weather is good so our dorfs should have easy time here.

    [​IMG]

    We just have to keep throwing flaming shit while we retreat.

    [​IMG]

    Thralls are almost gone, now we have to prepare to kill Baron's bowmen.

    [​IMG]

    Imperator on the left and some generic-warriors on the right are getting ready to flank the enemy.

    [​IMG]

    Which means going through the fire but no one said it will be easy.

    [​IMG]

    Our warriors reached enemy bowmen but we have small problem. Mrowak got hit with flaming arrow and he's almost dead.

    [​IMG]

    Imperator and some non-codexian warriors are done with enemy archers. Mrowak survived even though he got badly burned.

    [​IMG]

    Then we noticed Roxrowoski leading some reinforcements. Nice to see you guys, too bad you don't have any ice for Mrowak though.

    [​IMG]

    Experienced archers are worth their weight in gold so we will keep mrowak in the back.

    [​IMG]

    Now, that's a force!

    [​IMG]

    It should be enough to take Baron's castle since most of undead are busy raping Tallow.

    [​IMG]

    We reached the castle.

    [​IMG]

    Hoodoo shall check if anynone's home before we continue...

    [​IMG]

    Helooo! is anynone there?

    [​IMG]

    Go avay or ve shall taunt you for the second time!

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, that would be too easy if they just let us in. We have to re-open those gates with our pathfinder dorf.

    [​IMG]

    Pathfinder is "invisible" like the one in "Market Garden" mission of TFL.

    [​IMG]

    Enemy should be able to hear you but from my experience, you can just walk right next to them.

    [​IMG]

    Just don't walk on them.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, now Jari have to open castle gates for us.

    [​IMG]

    Which will be very dangerous but dwarven pathfinders drank danger with the milk from their fathers tits...

    [​IMG]

    ... Or so they say. Ok, it's now or never!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The gates are going down but Jari will also go down unless he will do some Ninja shit.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    SPLASH!

    [​IMG]

    He did his job but he decided to help us further by killing archers on the left walls... and he don't have any means of escaping anyway so he might as well do that before he dies.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Holy shit, he survived.

    [​IMG]

    But now we have to deal with some angry Baron's soldiers.

    [​IMG]

    And for some reason game decided to change my formation. Whatever, at least codexers are in one place.

    [​IMG]

    There is quite a lot of them so I decided to use flaming arrow ability of our bowmen (they didn't have it in TFL).

    [​IMG]

    It won't do much damage but it will do some, and every bit of help is nice.

    [​IMG]

    Baron's men got close enough for our dorfs and shit-chucking can begin.

    [​IMG]

    Roxorowski is fresh recruit but I don't even know what experience do for dwarfs.

    [​IMG]

    Range units did what they could and now it's our warriors turn.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, we are free to enter the castle.

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately there are enemy archers on the wall to the right. Jari couldn't do anything about them so we have to prepare for casualties.

    [​IMG]

    Poor Ulrich.

    [​IMG]

    We have to somehow wiggle Mrowak around because one arrow will kill him.

    [​IMG]

    That wasn't Mrowak though. It also wasn't Sergiu.

    [​IMG]

    We are almost there, we have to quickly deal with some random brigands and get away from enemy bowmens range.

    [​IMG]

    Another fucking archer gone.

    [​IMG]

    Stop killing my archers goddamit!

    [​IMG]

    Thralls are swarming throught the main gate. We have to retreat to where Jari is.

    [​IMG]

    He shall cover our asses.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We still have to deal with guys guarding entrance to the Baron's quarters.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I decided to do it old-fashioned way, without unnecessary heroism.

    [​IMG]

    Only Jari is throwing flaming shit because regular dorfs can't attack at this angle.

    [​IMG]

    Alexander is in troubles but Jari is doing fine.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Mrowak! Sergiu64! you have to save our brave Alexander!

    [​IMG]

    ... But don't shoot him.

    [​IMG]

    Almost there, man. Just a few more steps!

    [​IMG]

    Awwwww.

    [​IMG]

    Now we shall leave our wounded soldiers on the wall because, surely, nothing horrible will happen when we approach the gate...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    THAT ISH A SHTYGIAN KNIGHT. CRAFTED FROM THE SHOULSH OF FALLEN SHOLDIERSH BY SHOULBLIGHTER HIMSHELF!

    [​IMG]

    No one told those guys from Eblis Stone that you don't fucking fight Stygian knights with warriors and Journeyman?

    [​IMG]

    You use dorfs!

    [​IMG]

    NOOBS!

    [​IMG]

    ... Ok, now we can enter the baron's quarters.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes I can be such a dick for no reason.

    Immune to arrows and nasty in melee. Exploshuns tend to bend them out of shape, though.

    You mean in this LP? man, you have 21 kills which makes you third after Ivoldi and Mrowak who killed most shit in this campaign.

    Great! I was afraid no one will want to be an archer and we need experienced archers (Making them Codexers makes me care about them more).
