Built for the Lands Of Mythron Universal Challenge: Tomeu's defeat. I decided to have my character, Destrian, join Nerogue so that he isn't just wandering Mythron. In my last LOM build I suggested that you join this group. Again, I say, join the group, if you have not. It is awesome, and a great way to find things to build.
About this creation
It was a usual peaceful day in the Mythronian city of Tomeu. Up on the wall on one of the many entrances scattered throughout the walls of the city, the archer's stood perched on the wall, looking out to the mountains towering in the distance. A Mythronian general and a gaurd patrolled the area, watching out for any unusual commotion and making sure the city was in order.
Destrian, the former Mythronian archer, now currently an outlaw under disguise, stood next to well as he drew water from its depths. He was only stopping by the city, as he hoped to buy some supplies and then continue wandering Mythron.
Suddenly, a horn sounded. Startled, Destrian dropped the bucket of water. The archers on the wall stooped over and then shouted: "Outlaws! A whole band of them!" The general and his escort turned around and raised their weapons, preparing for the apparently impending attack.
The outlaws began to scale the walls like monkeys. Instead of becoming an obstacle, the wall became a part of their path. One of the archer's began to shoot the outlaws down below. A few fell, but they quickly ran up the wall and attacked.
One outlaw brandishing a slightly curved sword jumped down and then slammed his sword into one of the archer's chests. He fell down onto the crumbling path below, dead before he even touched the ground.
Destrian then heard the shouting of outlaws, this time inside the city. The general's escort charged, the head of his spear in front of him ready to run through an outlaw's body.
Suddenly, a group of Rainosian's burst through the wall, shouting a battle cry. A lantern and a few large stones fell. Destrian instantly recognized the Rainosians by their brown and red garbs. Their leader, the Rainosian wearing the most armor charged at him.
Instinctively, Destrian drew an arrow, set it on the string, and then fired it into the Rainosian's chest. He fell backwards, head first, onto the grass near the wall's entrance.
The battle, albeit a very short one, quickly raged on. The remaining archer on top of the wall shot an outlaw cowering near the well. The general sliced down a Rainosian spearman, and another outlaw and a Rainosian locked blades.
The general realized that the city was about to be overrun. He ordered a retreat, and then quickly escaped through the gate with the archer that remained with him.
After the battle, Destrian walked through the massacre. As far as he could see, Tomeu's streets were littered with corpses, consisting mostly of Mythronians and Rainosian's. The battle's victors, the outlaws, walked around collecting and piling bodies later to be burned.
One of the outlaws walked up to Destrian. " I saw your archery skills during the battle. We could use men like you."
"What do you mean?" Destrian said.
"We plan to rebuild Tomeu, and rebuild it into Nerogue. Anyone from all the other factions can join us Neroguians, not just the outlaws. So what do you say? Will you join us?"
"I...yes. I will join you."
Destrian went up to the top of the wall. He had a mixed feeling of relief, for he was once again a part of a faction, and hopefully a faction of people he could trust. But he also had a feeling of sorrow, for he helped destroy a city of a nation he was once loyal to.
Thank you for looking! Please rate and comment! This took me a while to make.
