LCC - Heroes Guild - J2 - Battle with the Serpent

Postby gurusql » Sat Jul 21, 2012 6:31 am

Kroth knew that his first duty was to Havenhill with Lord Aldolpus dead, but he also knew that the town would continue to be in danger until Agmund the Wise was either captured or dead. Having already requested aid, Kroth started to interview dozens of witnesses of the horrible attack and while many of the accounts described wild magical abilities for both Agmund and the giant serpent, he did learn that both guard towers had large barrels with a metallic looking dust stored there just before the serpent attacked and that the two towers had burst into flames at least a full minute before the arrival of giant serpent. Kroth decided that we each passing day, Agmund could be getting farther and farther away from justice – something he could not stand for. That evening, Kroth gathered four of his best warriors and his squire with a plan to head out at dawn.

After only an hour on foot, the small band came upon a small cave entrance with a barrel just outside the entrance. Kroth quickly spread the team for a multi-prong approach, with Kroth selecting a narrow 8 foot tall ridge for himself. Without warning and almost without a sound a giant serpent slithered out of the cave mouth and began a vicious attack. The serpent was large enough that a dwarf could stand up within its belly. The serpent was mostly white, with marking of tan and a pale blue that almost glowed in the sunlight and had eyes that looked like blood. Before anyone could land a serious blow to the creature, the snake was eating one of the men almost whole. Kroth jumped down from the ledge and used all of that momentum to land a sword stroke almost cutting the serpent in half. With the snake badly wounded Kroth and the remaining men were able to slay the serpent.

During the course of the brief battle, Agmund the Wise had somehow gotten above the mouth of the cave holding a torch above his head. He yelled down at Kroth, “You may have been able to defeat my giant serpent today, but our paths will cross again and next time you may not be so lucky.” With that he throws his torch towards the barrel that had been knocked over at the mouth of the cave while running in the opposite direction.

For a few seconds time almost stood still, but then there was a loud explosion that knocked everyone off their feet. The mouth to the tunnel collapsed and everyone was stunned with Agmund’s magic.

Brick-built beasts aren't quite my cup of tea, so I'll leave the serpent for others to comment on.
That being said, the cave and the shaping of the rest of the 'snowscape' is really great. :)

Great work on the landscaping! The serpent looks good too, my only nitpick would be that his eyes seem a little close together. Other than that it is a beautiful MOC :D

Nice! I really like the snow and the shaping of the cave. I think the serpent is pretty cool as well...though I do kind of feel bad for the guy he is nomming on.
