GCVI 8x8 entry:

Image

Areneas was thinking one day soon after the dual when Navarre entered the room. He had just been considering staying with Navarre rather than betraying him for quite a few convincing reasons. One, because he feared Navarre’s revenge, also because he liked Navarre, and also the Queen seemed a breaking read to lean on. Anyway he was decidedly for Navarre after what he said: “By the way, I still what more weapons so I will send you and Keeler on a mission, if succeed well I will promote all involved to a higher rank.” Areneas uttered a satisfactory grunt. “I will now tell you the plan.” Sometime later they were on their way to one of the queens nearby weaponries. Navarre had already transferred almost all his men to his fortress on the Loresii border near The Shade a while ago. Areneas was in disguise as an outlaw noble in favor of the queen and was in the lead, someway behind crept Keeler and his men dragging empty bales and crates. When they reached the armory Areaneas went forward leaving the others hidden. He marched up and the two guards let him in after inquiring who he was, however he left the gate ajar after he entered. Then he asked for a glass of wine and said he could give them information about the position of the outlaws planning to attack if they took him to the ramparts which they did. Then he started feeding these tons of lies. Meanwhile Keeler and his men crept in and, loading the bales and crates with weapons, crept away. At the same time, Areneas was having a lot of fun contributing all the false information to the queen’s men. Areneas now got to the supposed point, “By the way the real reason I came was for weapons for my men so…” “Did you hear that?” one of the men said as there was a clatter. They all raced to the place where the weapons were stored. “There all gone!” exclaimed one of the guards, “oh! We are in trouble if we can’t find them!” “Rats!” Bellowed Areneas, “Where?” asked a guard. “No silly, I mean nasty.” Areaneas was getting a kick out of the thing, “I wanted some weapons.” “Oh, well let’s hurry so we can catch them, they can’t have that much of a head start!” And off they went in the direction of the fake castles Areneas had pointed out, leaving the chuckling Areneas to make his way to Navarre’s fortress at his leisure.

The only thing I would say is that the roof of the cellar/storage area looks very low, but that's no big deal. Keep up the good work!

Thanks Erathor! Yes I guess so! Well here's my last GC entry :D :

Now Navarre had done lots to prepare for war, he had gathered plenty of weapons, enough food, and was situated in his greatest fortress. But whenever he walked by the oldest part of the castle, something, he couldn’t tell what, looked strange. One time he figured he had had enough; he sat down and looked around. Now, nothing looked wrong or out of place, probably just because he was looking for something wrong! Then he saw what it was; one of the old stones placed on the floor looked like someone had removed it and then replaced it. He went and tried to lift it. It was too heavy, of course, so he went and got Keeler who was now one of his Generals. “You sure it’s been removed?” Keeler asked. “Seems like it, anyway, we’ll give it a try.” Navarre shrugged. But even when both attempted the stone still didn’t come up. “Why don’t we try to push it down?” suggested Keeler. “Good idea.” William replied. When they pushed down it yielded to a small push slowly sliding to one side, revealing a dark passage at the bottom of a few stairs. “Quickly, call Areanes and one other General and tell them to each bring a couple of their best most trusted men,” Navarre told Keeler, “and make sure that they’re well-armed.” When Keeler returned with Areneas and some men they began the decent of the stairs with torches. Areneas shut the trapdoor behind him leaving them in the light of the torches. By now Navarre figured that it was dark outside. As they advanced through the secret passage, it began to look more like a cave and then broadened out into a room with a vaulted ceiling. The room was lit by torches which gave it a greenish dancing light. As they looked around, they realized that the continuation of the passage was blocked by a door, “Keeler, why don’t you try the door while we examine the room?” asked Navarre. “Ha, it’s locked sir!” Keeler replied after trying the door. Meanwhile, Areneas had discovered a pool of blood with a chain dangling by its side, with the other end in the pool. “Hmmn, it seems like the key might be at the other end!” declared Areneas. “Let me see that!” Keeler demanded, grabbing it from Areneas. But as they tugged at it the chain flew down to the bottom of the pool of blood. “Now look what you’ve done!” exclaimed Navarre, “One of you must retrieve it!” Keeler than dived down the pool and brought up the chain, “Hmmn, it has the key at the end!” he affirmed! He then opened the door and entered followed by Areneas and Navarre. After a ways they came to a place where they could barely crawl through and then emerged into the open air! By now it was quite dark except a couple of bright, blinding, lighting flashes which revealed to the group a beautiful ship with the skull and crossbones on the sail. “Ah! Gorgeous! Now all we need to do is take possession of the ship!” exclaimed the General. “Oh? I wouldn’t be so sure!” ROOOARRR!!...

TO BE CONTINUED…

When we last left Navarre, he seemed in some trouble… now he and his men were fighting for their lives! As they had come out from the cave they had found an ambush waiting for them! John of Guarmal and his troops fought Navarre’s men into the water trapping Navarre himself behind them! Guarmal himself rode towards Navarre who was now trapped between the water, John’s soldiers, and John himself mounted on a magnificent war horse...

Ambush at the Merkorion Channel!

Image

“I order you to surrender on the bases of my promising to treat you fairly and as a prisoner of war! Surrender!” Navarre had been forced away from his friends by John de Guarmal and now was being summand to surrender to john of Guarmal. “I surrender,” replied Navarre. Guarmals men rapidly took him and, robbing him of his weapons, tied him securely. It was extremely uncomfortable and absolutely impossible to walk, therefore he was placed on a horse and his feet tied under him. They then traveled toward the coast of the Great Southern Sea, taking advantage of every forest to hide any tracks.

Meanwhile, Navarre’s men hurried back to Raltworth castle and General Keeler, after gathering some men, headed for the Great Southern Sea, while Areneas headed east for the Sea of Despair, leaving Ralincler to guard the castle against any sudden attack. They planned to rapidly sail to Garheim and, if they didn’t find traces of Guarmal, to cross Garheim and finding each other, join and track him down. We will follow the adventures of Keeler. After ten days march they reached the coast and renting a small but fast black and red boat set sail after their captain. They were dressed in the armor they had taken from the queen’s armory as it would draw less attention from the queen and in addition, Navarre had before his capture hinted that he might join the queen if thing went her way.

A little ways below on the coast two days ago the party of Garheims had joined another group on board a large ship with a strange thing onboard that looked like a ladder staying up only because of a chain to Navarre. John called this thing a corvus and apparently it was supposed to be used by dropping it on anything they wanted to board. Navarre was untied and transferred to a much more comfortable cage which was guarded only by one man. On the side there was a key hanging but Navarre knew that it was for something other than the cage because, despite the fact the he had been blinded before they put him in, he had heard no keys or grating. Three days later they stopped at Crakenhaven which lies on the island of Norhom.

At the same time Keeler and his men were rapidly catching up with them by traveling night and day and were just passing Isil Oro. Seven hours later brought them to Crakenhaven but Guarmal and his men had already left and Keeler, seeing that his men were exhausted stop for a couple hours and then pressed on as hotly as before. Soon they were within sight of some sails and doubting not that it was Guarmals ship passed it and continued on till they were at the narrowest point of the Merkorion channel and there lay in wait for Guarmal.

John de Guarmal was in a good mood, he had no fear of persuit and still less of an ambush. In addition they were traveling at a good speed considering that there was no wind. Abruptly a man called out in a loud voice “Surrender, or your dead men!” Looking at the cliff jutting out on the right from whence the sound had issued forth Guarmal beheld a man on horseback alone, who appeared to be a noble from the queen. “I shall not surrender! Lower the corvus!” This was unexpected by the man and he appeared vastly startled, however as they were about to cut the chain one of the men screamed and round the cliff came a small cutter full of men all dressed as the queens men and armed to the teeth! Immediately Guarmal yelled and cut the chain using great force. Leaping up from behind the rocks Navarres men charged down the corvus at the astonished Garheims who were grabbing up any weapon to defend themselves. As the men from the cutter were jumping on board Guarmal shouted “I surrender!” laying down his armor which he had taken off. But before the Outlaws could react he had jumped over the side! Furious at his having escaped Navarre men lead by himself, for he had leapt out of the cage as soon as the attack had begun, killed all of the men but the few that escaped.

Here are the next four parts which I have been posting on Merlin's Beard Forum:

Ambush!
Image
Image
Image

We will pass shortly over the travel through Roawia but just state that although Navarre’s men continued to wear the queens armor they innocently kept up a continual harassment of the dragon knight, hanging the up in trees and trapping them in pits. Soon they arrived at Raltworth Castle and gathering his men Navarre set out to take part in the siege of the Queen Galainir’s castle!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Coming Battle!
Image
Image
Image

As Navarre and his men marched towards the Royal Castle Navarre thought of the war. His own men amounted only to 2000, but he had hired some wild men from the shade and was to join up with some allies from all three of the provinces at the Queen’s castle. In total, he considered their combined forces should be over 6000, but supplies for a long siege and siege engines was what he had to worry about. He only had enough horses to carry about six engines and had high hopes that the allies could provide twelve more; at least…Ten Days Later…William Navarre had been disappointed by his allies who only had two siege engines and limited supplies for a siege. However they managed after 15 days to affect a breach in the wall and now planned for the attack!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Siege of The Royal Castle!
Image

Image

Looking over the hillside toward the castle Navarre surveyed the prospects. What would the coming battle hold? Little did he imagine as he gazed over the walls the desperate position he would be in by the following evening!...Tramp, tramp, tramp, as the men advanced toward the breach in the wall arrows poured down upon them in heaps. The assault on the breach was one of the two attacks to be made on the castle the other, which was to be made on the wall with ladders, was led by Navarre’s second in command and only a few men. In fact that was just to be a diversion; the serious attack was on the breach and led by Navarre himself. Navarre knew if that his allies planned to infiltrate by cutting the chains of the drawbridge and rushing hopefully unseen in the confusion into the castle. Under the storm of arrows the two forces laid the make shift bridge and placed the ladders across the moat. Rushing forward under boiling oil and a barrage of arrows with Navarre at their head the troops bravely forced the breach covered by the spiked catapult outside the walls. However they were met with the prince Zerxes and his men and slowly were being forced back when their allies rushed over the now lowered drawbridge and charged the flank of the prince’s men. Again they were on the verge of taking the castle when Calvary reinforced their opponents and charges scattered Navarre’s forces and pursued the hotly till the water’s edge where they scattered and ran. Back at the castle forgotten and forsaken lay Navarre, wounded and bleeding could this be the end?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Conjurer!
Image

Image


But Navarre was not dead, and though sorely wounded, managed to escape through the breach before the dragon soldier dispatched him along with any other wounded enemies. Navarre, after washing his cuts in the moat, bandaged his wounds as best he could with his shirt and cloak. Subsequent to lying near the moat for some time, Navarre crawled toward an abandon horse, and mounting with great difficulty, rode away till he fell off onto the rugged terrain. Suddenly, a black shadow flittered across the rocks. Navarre pulled out his knife, the only weapon he still had. “Ah don’t worry… I haven’t the slightest notion to betray you.” “Why should I believe you?” replied Navarre as the shadow turned into a man standing before him. “Why,” the wizard replied, “should I deceive you?” “That, I must ask!” answered William. “Well, go ahead, but my advice is that you follow me…” whoosh, and a portal appeared before Navarre, “But I obviously can’t walk, still less lurch forward into a portal!” “Ha, that can be fixed!” retorted the conjurer lifting Navarre off the ground with his staff and floated him into the portal jumping in after him with an evil grin…

Sorry you had to wait moph but here is the next part:

Image

After flying through what seemed like an infinite void, William Navarre fell onto a rude stretcher in a dark wood paneled room. The wizard stood in front and waving his staff caused a dark figure to appear hovering in the air. “Ah another,” it boomed in a deep voice, “the queen needs more men to back down this petty rebellion.” Navarre retorted propping himself up despite his wounds, “You seriously think I’m gonna work for her? What a joke!” “Oh when you get better,” replied the shadow carelessly, “I see,” to the wizard, “You got another tough one?” “Indeed, I found him up desperately wounded riding after his retreating troops, for he seems the one in command, however he fell from the horse and I got him easily.” answered the conjurer. “So the rebellion failed?” grinned the appearance. “In part, they indeed have not forced the gate yet but even if they do Maldrake has some tricks up his sleeve!” All this was said in a low tone so Navarre heard little and falling back on his pillow he was soon asleep from exhaustion.
