The Dominion prepared for the Rebels to respond to their initial assault on the dwarven trade caravan. The drow armed their guards to the teeth, rode out on small and nimble dinosaurs, and prepared the proper siege equipment to decimate dwarven and svirfneblin infantry. The wait was long, standing watch in the purple light cast from Tolgorith Tower and the Spider Temple, for no one arrived. The drow were prepared and waiting but eventually scouts returned reporting a grand battle between the Rebels and the Outsiders which took place somewhere between Embla and the Fungi Forest on the Back Road. New Dominion scouts were dispatched but by the time they arrived on the scene, they found nothing but dead bodies. Most of the Rebel corpses were partially devoured with necks ripped out and bones gnawed upon. A grisly sight for most but just another stroll through the Underworld for the drow and their Dominion forces. 

DOMINION - NOTHING HAPPENS 


The Rebels decided to get the jump on the Outsiders, knowing the drow would expect retribution and hole up in the city of Holoth. After fortifying the dwarven city of Embla, the Rebels marched down the Back Road in search of the Outsiders' settlements. Those grisly Outsiders wouldn't be able to stay hidden for long, the dwarves and svirfneblin would soon claim that newly discovered magical orb for Embla's survival and prosperity. Little did they know...

REBELS - LOSE -1 DIE


The Outsiders also decided to attack the Rebels, so unbeknownst to one another, the two groups were both in the great caves of the Back Road, marching directly at one another. However, the Outsiders were more observant and spotted the Rebels first. The Outsider troops quickly took position and hid behind large rocks, boulders, and huge mushrooms, waiting for the right moment to strike. As the Rebels passed by, the Outsiders charged in and tore the Rebel forces asunder. The battle went back and forth, at times swaying to the advantage of the Rebels, but finally the Outsiders struck a killing blow, decimating the dwarven forces and leaving only a few survivors. Those dwarves left standing chose to stay and fight, pressing forward only to be easily dispatched by the Outsiders who then began to feast upon the bodies and drink the blood of their victims.

OUTSIDERS - GAIN +1 DIE

      Archmage Pharin'dalyn nods and raises his staff to signal his mages waiting throughout Holoth, and in unison they conjure a veil of darkness, obscuring the city from all who would gaze upon it from outside the walls and cavern. "It is done."

      The Shadow monk, Lord Commander Vayne, looked at his gathered council of Archmages, Warlocks, Rogues, Rangers, and Fighters. The silence surrounding Holoth seemed deafening. Slowly, his sharp, cruel face turned upward in a grin.

      "Our information proved correct. Now, we proceed with the next stage of the plan."

      "It was a bold move by the dwarves that could have paid up immensely had it succeeded. We salute your courage."

      That was indeed awesome and Lady Luck was so fickle at time

      "Reagar takes a swig of his ale. Setting it down, he looks at his fellow dwarves sitting at the table and says "The war party should have been back by now. Something went wrong. I don't know about you lot, but I'm going to go sharpen me axe. I'm gonna be splitting some skulls soon enough.""

      That was an awesome round.
