The siege of Elpis has begun...
About this creation
Spine and his men had been trekking for hours. His men were tired, and spaced apart. This would not do for a siege on Elpis. His men needed a break. There was a ravine here. His men might be able to find water and get a bit of rest there.

Spine's hopes were dashed when he saw a whiff of red and black. A Lion of Elpis, no doubt. Spine's men wore red and blue. There was no mistaking that it was a Lion, as Spine's soldiers were anything but stealthy. Perhaps it was a Lion sentinel. Spine had a few Sentinels of his own, though.

Since his soldiers were not the most stealthy, Spine had chosen the more grueling route of the mountain pass. His soldiers might not be stealthy, but they were hardy. This ravine most likely marked the territory between Elpis, and other lands. The rock arch probably served as a good landmark for Lions of Elpis. Spine was unlucky today. A border, and a landmark. This would mean his army would be spotted easily. Better to deal with the Lions quickly.

For outlaws, the Roaring Lions sure dressed like red Mythronians. Also, some wore hats like those in the desert wear to keep away sand and silt. Spine guessed that those were the Sentinels he saw earlier. They were armed with a lethal looking scythe and a short sword, that looked like Elf craftsmanship. Foot soldiers, knights, (If outlaws even be called such a noble name), and the Sentinels. A small scouting party, Spine guessed. His men should be able to handle this scouting party well, but his men were tired. Spine was tired. The only one not tired was Gyllfore, but he never seemed to tire. It was probably his Rainosian assassin training kicking in. The lines had been drawn, and a battle was unavoidable.

Unbeknown to Spine, a druid stood among the Lions. A rather powerful druid, who had the energy to use even the most powerful spells...

There was no time to plan, but Spine could not lose. Failure here meant certain doom at Elpis. In fact, there might not even be a battle for Elpis. That unfriendly thought lingered in Spine's head for a long time. Spine might be unprepared, but he could think well under pressure. “Men!” Spine called, “ Once you cross that bridge, fan out! If you go single file, they can pick us off like flies!” A chorus of “Yes sir” and “Aye Gen'ral” could be heard many a yard away. The battle had begun.

Spine's back felt unusually warm. He looked behind him, and almost his entire army had come to a halt on the other side of the ravine. Only he, Gyllfore, his two Sentinels, and one foot soldier had made it across. The ropes holding the bridge in place had been burnt off by a druid, who was overlooking the entire battle, from atop the rock arch. This battle was not looking good. And that Druid must be taken care off. Spine called to Gyllfore, “Gyllfore, rid the earth of that Druid scum!”

Spine must not have been thinking straight, because if that druid just cast flames to strand our army on the other side of the ravine, he can most certainly protect himself,Thought Gyllfore, I'll just have to get creative.

Silver-steel against a magic rod. Gyllfore's chances did not seem good, but he was sure making a valiant stand against the Druid. With every burst of magic the Druid flung at Gyllfore, Gyllfore made a lightning fast move to dodge it. Then it clicked. Gyllfore must be wearing down the Druid. When his is worn down, Gyllfore will strike. It made perfect sense. Spine had faith in Gyllfore, and so Spine kept pushing forward.

Wave after wave of Lion Soldiers attacked and fell at Spine's feet. “How many more?” he wondered out loud. Then he saw it. The last wave of soldiers. The Druid was dead. Just a few more soldiers. Spine told himself.

Sentinel versus Sentinel, soldier versus soldier. However, these Lion Sentinels were proving to be a problem for the Dragon Sentinels. They were locked in combat for the longest time. Spine wished he could aid them, but he had problems of his own. The Lion ranks were thinning, and Spine noticed there were more Dragon soldiers were at his side, fighting. They must have climbed the ravine. The water wouldn't have been a problem, the bridge fell right into it, so they could just army-crawl across it.

Spine had felled the last Lion foot soldier. Now just to slay the Lion Sentinels, and the battle would be won! Two on one, the Lion Sentinels fell quickly. The battle was won! Victory was ours! Now to just herd the entire army across the ravine...

Decent... But the druid should have won!!!

Quoting Professor B. Whew! That's a relief! :P So you can just keep attacking until you win? :D
Well, yes but I cannot attack the same city twice in a row, and only two cities may be attacked each year, but that might be changed to three.

What? No.

Quoting JP Creations Amazing work! The fire whip is cool! I like the rockwork.
Thanks!

That's right Julia and Ian - if Rainos wins, they gain a city right next to Mythron and then attack one of your cities in May. If the Outlaws win, Rainos DOESN'T get a city next to Mythron and then attacks Mythron in May. So take your pick: an extension of Rainos plus an attack, or just an attack? :P

Quoting Julia LeeP Ian, exactly what Halhi said. You DON'T say "Go Rainos". You say "DOWN WITH THE OUTLAWS!". Rainos is simply the lesser of the two evils. Oh, and Adam, from what I can tell, this looks like one of your best so far. The trees..... ahhh. Anyways, I don't wish you good luck, because for all I know you could be attacking a Mythronian city soon, but I do wish that, for this once, that you crush the Outlaws under your feet. No offense to you, Kai, of course...
Thanks!

Correction @both Mythronians: both of you are wrong, it's best if the outlaws win. Then our main enemy won't gain a city (and a foothold in Mythron)

Quoting Adam Brunsting Hmm. I thought the bridge and arch would do that.
They probably would normally, but because of the scale of the build those elements seem to get drowned.

Quoting The Object of Legend A good sold build, but the details are a bit ordinary. It's impressive in scale and the amount of work, however you need something, some part, that captivates the viewer. All together, you have a great MOC here!

Quoting Mr. Cab Nice job here! My favorite detail is the river running out over the side of the Moc. As far as I know, it is not allowed to show either side winning the battle, but I don't think that's a big issue. The only concern I have for this build is that the sides look a bit boring. Maybe working in a cutout or a symbol would have made them more interesting... Anyways, still a nice job.
Thanks! I read nothing about the having one side not winning. Also, It would have been very difficult to work in a cut out, as the inside is a bit, interesting.
