The Battle of Choskan Mine
Played on September 23th, 2012
July 16, 21 Years After the Departure (Atd)
It took some time because the greyskins in the building had
entrenched themselves using makeshift cover, but we managed to dispose
of them. That left only Rolin, who was dispatched by some good teamwork
from Soniah, Vaal and Galtar. A major victory for BRAWL!
Now we had cleared Choskan city from the greyskins, but we knew that
a lot had fled to the mines. We were anxious to see how the dwarves
had fared, so we set out quickly along with our siege engines and
battering rams. When we arrived at the mines, we saw that they had
already fortified themselves quite heavily. We would have to use the
battering rams to try and get inside, but the archers on top of the
walls made that pretty much impossible.
Boulder tried to instill some fear in the remaining greyskins by
tieing Rolin’s body to a battering ram. He hoped that this would
set an example. Unfortunately it was taken entirely the wrong way
by Grimric, one of the greyskins who we had encountered during our
brief undercover stay at Choskan mine. Apparently with Rolin gone,
he was next in command and therefore now their leader.
Finally Deirdre and her warlocks were able to set up a large smoke
screen, with which the battering rams were able to do their work. It
got messy but it worked, and we also conquered Choskan mine. Some of
the remaining greyskins fled into the mines, but Galtar and Soniah
went after them. Soniah quickly had to turn back as the stench inside
the mines was too much, but Galtar managed to dispatch 9 greyskins
who were waiting in ambush for him. Unfortunately among the bodies
that he found in the mines, he also found a lot of dwarves; that did
not bode well for our friends. Because there were no further signs
he did turn back though.
And with that, we truly had freed Choskan!
