Dark lord Valdis peered through thick forest canopy. Black Shard, his custom-bred dark phoenix, made his way through dark, stormy clouds above Twilight Glades. His warriors are not well-prepared for upcoming battle; many of them are tired and exhausted by long journey. But portals to sheer horror beyond imagination must be opened immediately! He saw primitive, fish-like creatures gathering around, with tools of destruction ready.
- Arise, my warriors! It’s time to claim this land. We will unleash horrors by our weapons, magic and finally - opening portals in forests. And who want to taste the flesh of fresh crab or octopus-man?
He heard bloodthirsty shouts in response.
His warriors gathered near the forest edge. Silent, moss-covered monuments of the past will see another bloody battle. Abyssal riders did not hurry to shed blood. Black Shard’s dark wings flapping above them inspired courage, and they immediately rushed forward. Great waves of water, raised by thuul sorcerer, crushed many of them. The sea giant was approaching our bolt thrower, but the dark portal attracted his attention. But the salty sailors had their own plan. They took their trusty gun and started to run circles around the stupid giant.
- If you want to get the job done well, do it yourself, Valdis hissed.
Black Shard dove for the ground. His metallic beak and razor-sharp talons tore apart thuuls. Valdis on his bird of prey made a steep turn, facing the threatening claws and thick carapaces of the crustaceans. They raised their claws menacingly, and the next moment Valdis cracked up several shells with his blood-stained halberd. Black Shard began to feast on meat. Valdis and his warriors will feast soon.
