PostSubject: The Defense of Qualinost   Sat Mar 24, 2012 6:22 am

The battle has begun. The Green Skins used the river to send their forces to both the northern and southern borders of Qualinost. A great distance these Green Skins must have climbed in order to reach the cliff side of Qualinesti lands. But climb they did! Marshall Frangwe, accompanied by a priestess named Rhea, would be the first to spot the Green Skin advance.

"SOUND THE ALARM!!!" declared Frangwe to his fellow Qualinesti soldiers. With the scouts strategically placed, word was able to spread rapidly. In the mean time though, it was up to Frangwe, Rhea, and the Qualinesti soldiers in the area to defend before reinforcements arrived. Though a multitude of orcs were being slain, it became apparent to Frangwe that the number of orcs reaching the cliff side were greater than the number being slain. Over time the orcs, in greater and greater numbers, were surrounding them. Aid must get to them!

Before long, the Silvanesti, Druids, Clerics from the Temple of Light, as well as Solamnian Warriors came to Qualinesti's defense. Now it seemed the defense had the upper hand. Green Skins were dropping like flies. Thought no matter how many of these Green Skins fell more came, and seemed rather focused on the bridge. The Green Skins brought in catapults as well as kegs of explosive devices. Time and time again, the defenders of Qualinost destroyed these contraptions. Then a mass of keg explosives were placed upon the northern bridge. BOOM!!! Before the kegs could have been disposed of, they went off, and the northern bridge of Qualinost was destroyed. What seemed as pure chaos, now turned into total silence. Frangwe looked down the cliff side and it appeared that the Green Skins were moving on. "The Southern Bridge!" Though some of the elven warriors remained to defend the north, the alliance pushed south.

It seemed rather still once the alliance reached the southern border, but battle soon took place. At first, it seemed like the Green Skins were using the same battle strategy as before. But then portals appeared, and coming out of them were undead as well as demonic creatures. The alliance stood their ground and fought these invaders, and one by one the invaders dropped dead. The portals were reached and the clerics were able to destroy them. After inspection, it appeared that the Green Skins planted these portals, and also seemed to worship these demonic creatures that came out of them. All was quiet now. The southern bridge was still intact, and the Green Skins moved out.

Frangwe stood along the cliff side of the southern border and thought to himself, "This is only the beginning."

Once the battle came to a close, allies went to Frangwe informing him that they would be rounding up more of their forces for Qualinesti's defense. They even made suggestions as to how to position these forces in order to be the most effective. Their ideas seemed reasonable, and knowing that these positions could be changed at any time, Frangwe agreed to their suggestions.

Frangwe ordered archers along the cliff side of the northern and southern borders to rain arrows down upon the Green Skins (should they try that method of attack again). Archers were also made aware that should the Green Skins make the cliff side, or make an assault upon land, to place themselves behind the warriors.

After speaking with General Orlaith Orbharr of Solamnia, it became clear that Dragons would be a great ally. Under General Orbharr's suggestion, Frangwe wrote a letter to Commander Hudson seeking Dragons of the Silver, Bronze, and others that may be willing to come to Qualinesti's defense. This letter was sealed and brought to Thelgaard to be delivered to Commander Hudson post haste.

When General Orbharr and Frangwe looked down upon the river that the Green Skins made their assault, another idea was brought to the table. "Wonder if the Sea Elves would bring forth a defense amongst the waters." Frangwe went to other elven leaders to speak of the matter.

Before Frangwe could finally get some rest, he also made sure to send word to the White Robes about the attack, and more specifically about the portals the Green Skins were using. This information was brought to the White Robes of the Mage School east of Solace, and was to be brought to the White Robes of the Tower.

WIth that, Frangwe laid down for the first time since the battle began. He tossed and turned with so many thoughts going through his head. Finally, for what seemed like an eternity, Frangwe closed his eyes and went into a deep meditative state.

Making sure there is no one around to observe her Orlaith closes her eyes in concentraion.
Grimacing slightly as the pains of decades of lack of use hit her as she flexes the massive silver wings.After a few minutes the pain eases and with a powerful push of her massive hind legs she takes to the air.
Flying straight up into the clouds Orlaith orientates north and flying as high as she dare to remain unseen and with the thin air aiding her speed she heads north passing Palanthas far below to the one place she knows her kin will be to plead on behalf of the besieged Qualinost for aid against the demon worshipping green beasts.

The Green Skins were innumerable. No matter how many were taken down by Frangwe or anyone else, the mass of Green Skins never thinned. "There are things at work here, that are not completely understood," Frangwe thought to himself. It was clear now that there was only a very small window of opportunity to get fellow elven civilians out of Qualinost. Once Frangwe was through with speaking to the Fighter Guild Leaders (which was not the most pleasant experience), he made his way to the neighboring Dark Forest.

Once Elder Eagle of the Kagonesti was located, Frangwe came up to him immediately.

"What can I do for you Frangwe?" said Elder Eagle.

"The civilians of Qualinost need to get out before it is too late. There are other things at work here than just the Green Skins. Though I hope for the best in Qualiost's defenses, I must also plan for the very worst. There is only a small window of opportunity to do this while the Green Skins concentrate their efforts in the north. Under cover of darkness, the elves of Qualinost who can not fight (civilians) will make their way to your people. From there, they will go unseen, just as your people have done so well, and continuously move amongst the trees as well as hiding within them."

Letter to Frangwe,

"Marshall Frangwe, I along with several companions, have investigated the Orcs in reference to their use of portals. Amongst a magnitude of chaos, we were able to spend enough time deciphering more detailed information as to what these portals are. The portals are constructs not of this world. What is more, is that the Orcs speak some type of incantation to open them. I and my companions have discovered both fire and ice to be very affective to bring down these portals. It will be necessary to have someone with you skilled in these elements when taking on these Orcs, or else you will end up fighting an endless sea of demons along with them."

Tired and grumbling Orlaiths troops of the 1st Division stumble through the narrow paths from the coast through to the heart of Qualinost.
The vanguard stop quite suddenly as they seemingly instantaniously leave the forest and step into a large clearing in the woods.The jaws on the first few drop with the sight that beholds them....The Tower of the Sun rises amonst the most beautiful buildings they have ever seen.
Pushed on from behind and by their elven guides soon the whole five thousand troops stand looking in wonder at the elven city.
A strange looking elf (compared to the qualinost residents) steps out .."Colonel, I Nadrin...General Orlaith sent me"...
And so a Solamnic Army enters the defense of Qualinost in earnest...
