there is only one hell:
the one we live in now






The Guard is frightened. One of Jocasta's closest lieutenants was murdered during the night, and yet the scouts reported nobody entering or leaving the well-lit and guarded perimeter of the camp. This could only mean one thing: somehow, someone (or someones!) betrayed the Guard. The Guard! A lifetime's work thrown away for some petty sorcerer? It is unthinkable, and yet it can be the only explanation. Just as Jocasta was about to address the concerned crowd, they fell to the ground from a loud explosion - someone had sabotaged the stables, killing most of the knights' horses and spooking the rest into a frenzy. When the dust settled, Jocasta, her face grave and filled with rage, ordered an immediate decimation. She vowed the traitors would be found and tortured and killed.
From Qal's camp in the distance they heard nothing; just an eerie silence, as if the whole horde was reduced to a whisper.





Welcome to the Conquest of Qal! This is the thread for the Praetorienne Guard, fighting against the barbaric horde of the dark wizard Qal.

I'm gonna get right down to it, Max. I am not going to do much damage in battle; although I can take a bit of a beating. I am more of a homebody.

Checking in and then checking out for the night. King Maximilian I'm a bruiser. I can deal out big hits and I can soak up a fair amount, but not like amazingly well. I should only be melee.

Howdy everyone, my av is Ocelot from mgs5 (I haven't played it), apparently our lines of work have 'similarities.'

All of my skills are battle-oriented. I have one attack which will be useful in the first fight and probably never again afterwards. I can do a few other things to help my fightin' buddies.

Yo for real, this is a game of mafia first and some weird soldiers game second, so yes what Kashuno said. I hate hate hate people lurking because it throws off reads and turns the midgame into a quagmire of BS.

The other thread has more people prone to doing those things. Don't you worry your sweet, simple reptilian head.

Also, feel free to read the other thread and discuss it in your arguments or whatever the heck you are going to do with that information, but I am going to impose a gag-order on the other thread for myself because I know things and I don't want to point to anything in particular over there.
