Battle for the Golden Isle Week 3 & 4

We missed last week in the bustle of everyday life, we didn't have any games reported for week three, but for my part, I was getting ready for a tournament. What that means is that there are a lot of games to report for this week!

Kalip the Sneer was busy this weekend, fighting in 5 separate battles all across the island. The first game was a battle against the wily Forces of Nature as he tried to make headway inland towards the Port City, it was a valiant battle and for a moment it seemed as though Kalip’s pilfered artillery from his ships would carry the day, but it was not to be. In the end, he was defeated and pushed back across the mountains.

He hurried back and caught sight of an army of vampires trying to take the temple. Kalip caught them off guard and decimated the army like the heartless buccaneer that he was born to be. So great was their defeat that they fled all the way back to the Port City, where Kalip pursued them relentlessly until they were intercepted by another army of the Green Lady’s Forces of Nature intercepted them.

Great owls swooped down and attempted to pick off the green tide, but Kalip’s numbers were too great and they overwhelmed the birds and pushed even further into the Port City, where another of Nature’s armies met him, this time in the form of the Herd.

Kalip fought bravely and nearly carried the day in this battle. But it was not meant to be, and after a narrow loss was forced to retreat back to the Temple to lick his wounds. While passing through the mountains he was beset by an army of the Northern Alliance, which added further insult to his injury by decimating what little remained of his expeditionary force. Kalip was forced to retreat for a second time and sat stewing in the base of the temple, waiting for his moment of vengeance to strike.

In all, that makes 1 win and 2 losses for the Port City for Kalip, making the final score for that area of conflict being Hilmar Dag sitting at 81 points with Kalip sitting at 68 points.

Meanwhile, there was 1 win and 1 loss for the Temple for Kalip which brings the points to Kalip sitting at 77 points and Hilmar Dag at 56 points

Battle for the Golden Isle Week 2!

 A couple days late and without any pictures this week, but here is the update.

The seas have become more turbulent!

In the waters outside the sunken temple a battle between Admiral Durin Stonehand and his stout dwarf fleet taking on Admiral Nathayen of the sinister Twilight Kin. In the end, it seems as though the dwarf craftsmanship was able to eke out a victory against the sneaky elves, netting 15 points for Hilmar Dag.

Afterwards, Kalip the Sneer himself took to the waters and was able to fight off some human buccaneers in that same area who had been threatening to overcome the bay outside of the temple. The very elements themself came to his aid and struck down a luckless human ship as it strayed too close to the lightning and almost erupted into flames after a single stroke from the tempest that swirled around the fight.

Back on land, there was some goblin on goblin action that ended with Kalip's loyalists emerging victorious in a bloody brawl that left green carcasses spread across the streets of the Port City.

The scores now stand with Hilmar Dag controlling the Port with his meager lead of 28 points to Kalip's 27.  

Meanwhile the battle for the temple stands with Kalip in the lead having accrued 44 points to Hilmar's 26.

The battle is heating up for this island! Stay tuned for more results! And as always, if you are interested in joining in on the campaign, send an email to goldenislewar@gmail.com and we'll get you squared away.
