    Lol. I love that assessment.

However, there was actually a reason for his haste - the Dragon-Blooded would quite probably continue attacking into his territory and weakening his people, but also he knew they had a sorcerer who was busy churning out demons and therefore needed to be stopped asap (as was, there were 'merely' two Size 2 battlegroups and one Size 1 of demons present when his army got there) *and* that they had started building fortifications around the city *and* that within a month it was possible there would be other further reinforcements from Prasad, and possibly a Realm Legion.
      Just for clarification, there were two Size 2 BGs of mortal troops and one Size 1 BG of Demons, right?

        No, three battlegroups of demons, two Size 2 and one Size 1. I don't know how many came with the sorcerer (probably the agata at the very least) and how many were summoned in situ, though.

          Excellent strategic decision, making the early surge to stop their rapid increase in strength. Waiting seems like it would have made things unwinnable.

          Glad to see someone else having fun with a Melee counterattack build. You put it through quite a test. Isn't it hilariously fun?

            I have a question, sir, if you will indulge me, please.

            Were almost all of these updates 'real time' so to speak? I assume they were.

              Most were but some were off-time because I typed them up then got distracted for long periods of time before hitting send.

              Total enemy forces:

              6 Dragon-Blooded. I think the commander was Essence 4 and the rest between Essence 2 and 3. One was a sorcerer. I now possess a huge pile of artifact weapons and armour. These guys were very well equipped.
              Size 3 Ibenese conscript force with halberds.
              2 Size 1 Ibenese conscript units with bows.
              Size 2 Prasad regular troops with melee weapons.
              Size 2 Prasad regular troops with bows.
              Size 2(?) Realm elite troops with melee weapons.
              Size 2 unit of blood apes.
              Size 2 unit of agata.
              Size 1 unit of iron knuckles (elite melee demons).

              Total friendly forces, after application of War charms:
              1 Crimson Lion Rajah (Dawn-caste Solar, crazed nutjob).
              1 Blue Peacock Rani (heroic mortal martial artist).
              Size 4 Akhandahari regular force with spears.
              Size 3 Akhandahari regular force with axes and scaling ladders.
              Size 3 Akhandahari regular force with bows.

                That's a pretty fucking glorious victory I'd say.

                Good job!

                  Cool story, I really enjoyed that.

                  How did the Terrestrials mounted on Agatae get routed? Was one of the demon units composed of Beauteous Wasps?

                    Out of curiosity, why did the ST use multiple BGs? Generally the rules advise to avoid doing that. Were they different types of Demon?

                      Them being significantly different kinds of demons is my first guess as well: Erythmanoi, Agatas, et cetera. I mean, if the difference between infantry and cavalry is so important as to be ranked separately, a giant wasp and a gorilla should be represented separately as well.

                        Yeah, the sorcerer and the archer mounted up on agatae from the battlegroup; when Crimson Lion fired off a colossal supernatural effect that forced rout checks on everything, the agatae broke and Dave ruled they took the poor Dragon-Blooded with them (or possibly fortunate Dragon-Blooded, given how things turned out).

                        Yeah, as I noted in a post above, there were different types of demon. A Size 2 group of blood apes, a Size 2 group of agatae, and a Size 1 group of an elite melee demon the GM has called Iron Knuckles, presumably as a homage to Zelda.

                          What was that "colossal supernatural effect" that forced rout checks?
