Empire Branch of the CoL Arena of Death
« on: February 10, 2004, 07:20:13 PM »
Emperor Karl Franz was touring the festivites of the event.  The real important battles would not come for a while, as these rounds were just to determine the rankings for the elimination event.  Elector Counts, Wizards, and Priests from all around the Empire gathered to see their finest soldiers, and to find out who would represent them at the main arena in Bretonnia, where the Concalve of Light meets.

A young squire runs into the Emperor's room with a scroll:

"Attention all leaders, and most noble Emperor.  The first round as follows:

Defender of Ulthuan vs. EC.Sylvania
Feanor vs. Rufus
Grutch vs. Rior 2nd
WARRIOR2006 vs. Gyro LC
st1v xtr1m recieves the round 1 bye

EC.Sylvania defeated the Defender of Ulthuan 3 wounds to none
Rufus defeated Feanor 3 wounds to none
Grutch wins the match 4 wounds to 2
Warrior wins a gruesome 11 turn match 3 wounds to 2!
And the soldier with the bye shall fight the in the next round, which is:

Gyro LC vs. Defender of Ulthuan
EC.Sylvania vs. Feanor
Rufus vs. Grutch
St1v xtr1m vs. Warrior
Rior the 2nd with the second round bye"

More descriptions... more descriptions... we want details. :)

Had the Defender of Ulthuan ever defended the folk of Sylvania, the Elector Count would have deffered to a friend of the people. Alas, he never had, and worse, made it clear he never would.

The people of Sylvania rejoice at the victory but dare not become to loud. Loud voices have a way of becoming strangely silent in Sylvania. With heavy hearts and desperate eyes they cling to the hopes of greater victories to come so that, Sigmar be blessed, their plight may be lessened.

st1v xtr1m ~ I chose your templar b/c there is no magic ... a mage would have gotten raped.  And I'm not sure what you mean by challenges, its just preset 1 on 1 action.

As for more detail: These are the preliminary rounds, not the elimination exciting rounds.  These rounds only determine seeding in the major part of the tournament.  I am running AoDs on this site, bugman's, ulthuan, TPV2 and the CoL site, so as much as I would love to post more detail, I do not have time.

Though no worries, when the elimination bracket starts, there will be awesome stories for you guys  :D

Sorry TimmyMWD about the character I fixed him up in the other Topic he now has sword of Sigismund and the Enchanted Shield to go with the Heart of Middenheim and has kept all his other gear.
If I were witty, this would be my chance to shine.  But not everyone can be brilliant

The same messanger boy enteres the royal room:

"In Round 2 of Preliminary Sparring

Defender of Ulthuan defeated Gyro LC 3 wounds to 2.
EC.Sylvania defeated Feanor 3-2.
Grutch defeated Rufus 3 wounds to none.
and st1v xtr1m defeated WARRIOR2006 3 wounds to 1.

The Round 3 matchups are based on the success of the players (they are
power matched).  The rankings as follows:

Grutch 2-0
EC.Sylvania 2-0
st1v xtr1m 2-0
WARRIOR2006 1-1
Rufus Sparkfire 1-1
Defender of Ulthuan 1-1
Rior the 2nd 1-1
Gyro LC 0-2
Feanor 0-2

Thus we have the following round 3 battles:
Defender of Ulthuan vs. WARRIOR2006
GyroLC vs. Rufus Sparkfire
EC.Sylvania vs. Rior the 2nd
st1v xtr1m vs. Grutch
Feanor with the third round bye"

Maybe if the guy who started this post asked us what character we selected(eg captain. Elector count. Prince(me)

Then he maybe battles the two heros together then see who wins?

Then what magic items we have choosen(has to be legal)
Then I would have....

Elven Steed.
Blade of Sea Gold
Armor of Protection.
Enchanted Shield..

Thus giving me a
2+A/s and 4+ ward.
And the Blade allows no armor saves..

That being said..
Just bring it!!!
 :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:

P.S Who wants some of the Defender of Ulthuan... Ask your self this....
How did he get that name?

Except this is an Empire battle royale, not an Elvish one... so no Elfs allowed. ;)


I honorably bow out of the next battle, forfeiting the match to Grutch, the better man.

This seems to have died out.  Are you planning on finishing it?  If not I understand, but I was really starting to get into it.  (Maybe it has something to do with my charater being in first)  But I still like to see the results if you do have the time.
If you can't do something well, enjoy doing it poorly.

The first round matchups:
Rior the 2nd d. Defender of Ulthuan
Rufus d. Grutch
st1vxtr1m d. Gyro LC
EC.Sylvania d. Warrior2006

Here is the bracket for the whole tournament:

Warhammer-Empire Action
Rior the 2nd versus Rufus Sparkfire

Two grandmasters strode onto the field. They charged in at one another, magical equipment accompanying their mighty full plate armor. The two clashed at the center of the arena. Sweat began to drip off their faces and onto their armor and as they parried and thrusted ontop of their horses. The crew would follow the battle, yelling and sighing with each close blow. Finally Rior's horse reeled up on its back legs and landed back down partially on Rufus's horse. Distracted by the move, Rufus was caugh unaware as Rior slashed down at his chest. It was a mortal wound, and Rufus could not continue any longer.

Rior the 2nd advances

st1vxtr1m versus EC.Sylvania

These two contestants were regarded as the misfits of the emprie tournament ,as one was an elector count and the other a grand wizard. The two charged in on their horses and met with a furt of swords battle. The famous runefang glowed brilliantly, and it appeared to be a quick victory for the Elector until the wizard pulled out a small trinket. "Van Hortmans Speculum," the count gasped as they fought. The elector found himself growing somewhat weaker, but just barely. Even with the change in strength, he found himself able to wield his Runefang, and he brought it down on his opponent, slicing clean through his arm and into his torso.
