After a long failed battle with the Fae, Dorither, Cal, and their men seek refuge in the gnomish city of the Great Whatsit.
About this creation
Cal and Dorither immediately set up signs all over the city recruiting soldiers and mercenaries after the Prime minister of Obbitiz rejected their request for more troops.
The two find an Inn and settle there to wait for more to join their company.
The first to come is Net Raincaller, a sorcerer from a monastery in southern Obbitiz.
Net: "I've come to join your effort, as all others of my kind have fled out of fear, not bravery."
Cal: "Be that as it may, your help will be greatly appreciated."
The second to come is Burin, an elven refugee from the now scorched islands of Ose'shalor. He sticks out like a sore thumb amongst the crowds of small folk, and so does his companion and teacher, Serin.
Soon after comes Ilywelyn, the eldest of the group. St first he seeks to impress the group by back-flipping onto the table. Cal and Dorither immediately sit back expecting him to be some sort of odd entertainer until he shouts:
Ilwelyn: "I am Ilwelyn! Dragon-Slayer!"
Finally they realize his purpose for being there.
The group sits and enjoys small talk in the Inn until screams can be heard outside.
The company rushes outside to find the source of the screams.
to their amazement and Dismay group of Dream-catchers crest the wall with Spawners as their passengers. Spawners are the puppeteers and the undead are their puppets.
The gnomes are short in numbers, which is easily made up for with their advanced technology. A steam-tank enters the scene to combat the dream-catchers.
The scratching of claws on the iron wrought door can be heard.
Soon the gates break, and hordes of undead (and a few Fae warriors) come pouring through the archway.
Cal, Dorither, and Burin all combat the present group of undesirables as the others begin to charge spells.
Net teleports to the battlements were he proceeds with casting numerous web-spells on the undead below. He prefers not to fight, and as such realizes just how little offensive magic he knows.
Ilywelyn summons an old friend from past battles, a dragon, to assist him.
He sets forth to combat some of the dream-catchers, but accidentally sets a steam-tank or two on fire.
Meanwhile, Serin produces a fire elemental to help scorch their enemies.
a particularly nasty undead attacks Burin from behind.
Serin shoots the undead with a silver arrow and kills it.
Cal, seeing Burin wounded, sets to work on healing him.
With the battle thinning and almost all the undead dispersed, one dreamcatcher remains that lands just beyond the wall.
To their surprise a darkly dressed Faun walks through the gate. This seems odd to them because almost all famadorians are on the side of the Pluun (allies).
Sakleen the Messanger: "Your time is up warriors of Pluun. Now you must choose to either bow before queen Dwynwyn, or perish beneath her iron grip."
In a rage, Serin shouts "NEVER!" and shoots a silver arrow in his direction.
Sakleen easily parries the arrow and shouts:
and begins to run towards a by-standing gnome.
He severs the gnomes head from his body and disappears in a poof of black smoke.
The villagers crowd around the body and begin to mourn his death. This man was the Mayor of the Great Whatsit.
A funeral pyre is held immediately for their lost leader, and all is silent throughout the city.
The urn containing his ashes were placed in the royal crypt.
Dorither: "People of the Whatsit, I employ you to rebel against the forces that oppress you, what do you say?"
The crowd is silent, and no one is willing to join.
All except one. A small boy, the youngest son of the mayor steps forward.
Edmund: "For daddy *sniffle* I will fight."
Dorither: "We would be honored if you joined us."
With that the newfound group departs from the repairing Whatsit, to seek the Prime minister to gather more knowledge of this threat from his library.
Corhaven is a unique world based off of player interaction. In the group you roleplay your character's way through any number of situations, which are later published into comic form. With numerous ways to play, how will you fit in?
And another fantasy series. I'm glad that there's so much to tread coming year on mocpages. Oh, and you made a great start, good pictures, nice builds and directly to the action. Other comics often have too long introductions.
