Nar 11, 228

Along the gently rolling hills and plains of Darfield, two armies are ready to clash. Each side has near 50,000 men lined up against one another, preparing for combat. The armies of Laniveer are lined up, and marching across a field, a mile from the lines of the Mobrinite army. The rows of both armies are perfectly aligned. The armies of Mobrin are lined up, with the banners of their leige house waving in the wind.

At the front of the Mobrinite army, Prince Tyrel Kilgour is mounted atop a horse. Beside him is Cedric Crawford and Robben Ruxton. The three are speaking quietly. Suddenly, the Prince turns his horse, dancing along the face of his men as he looks at them appraisingly.

"Sons of Dyfan! Our enemies have marched on us, intent upon ruling over us and all of Daeren! Today, we fight! Not for honor, or glory, or loot, but for our wives, and our children! Today, we fight for our freedom, and for our lives!" The men of Mobrin let out a huge cheer that is sure to carry down the hillside and to the Laniveer army. "Sons of Mobrin! Take up your arms and destroy the enemy!" The men cheer again, just as Tyrel dismounts, slapping his horse on the rear, causing it to run off. He then turns and moves to get in line, on foot, next to his men.

Riding out to meet the enemy Cedric spots a target of opertunity and charges him/her (Lan Soldier4), trying to cleave the enemy in half on the first pass. Such for a glorious beginning.

Away from the combat, near the Aberdeen soldiers another person awaits, disguised, a robe over the dress she wears. Only her vivid blue eyes peek out from a slit created from the cowl hood over her head and the cloth that covers her from her nose down. A slight figure in comparison to the other soldiers, she clasps a medical bag in her hand, the look in those eyes hold worry for those on the front lines.

Robben nods a bit slowly at the Prince's words, before he lets out a bit of a sigh. Moving to dismount again in a similar way as the Prince, the heir of the Ruxton house gets his own sword out ready, moving to find a place near the Royal commander of this army, muttering something quickly under his breath now.

A rather short and slight man is within the ranks of Laniveer, holding his sword up at the ready as he waits for the call to go out for them to advance. Their own Leader is offering up words of inspiration, of greatness to follow, the sort of words that are meant to raise up spirits and get people into the fighting mood. But Soldier #5 looks nervous, his soft brown eyes slanting upwards to a taller man beside him. Soldier #5's face is hidden behind his armored helmet and it would take a keen eye to note that it is ill-fitting armor at that. A steeling breath of air is taken and held within his chest as he looks out to the other side, the dust as it coils up from mounted soldiers and the cries that go out. Their own cries rise up, #5's throat oddly unable to get more than a squeak out. But he's ready, not a choice to be had in the matter, shield held tightly to his chest.

Conall is along with the Aberdeen soldiers as well. Leading the men along, spotting Tyrel's gesture as they prepare for battle, turning to his own men. "We have given our word to help. We fight until we fall. Then we rise to fight some more, that is our way. Now show them all what we can do!" He calls out and getting a loud roar in return. Holding the front and as soon as Tyrel and his army moves, so will Conall's.

The Laniveer knight (3), who stands in the first line of Laniveer army is hidden under the silver armour and it is impossible to see anything, what could betray about strenght of his body or scars of his experiance. The man clanches long-sword in his hand so firmly, that the hand is shaking, though it is not from fright, but from eager to defeat enemies as soon as possible and get back near the cup of ale, raising it for the victory. Wind is tossing some clouds in the sky, hidding the sun or sometimes letting her rays out to play. This game creates mysterious shadows on knight's armour, while his own eyes are intently looking for target.

Present with the rest of the Mobrin army, and dressed in his dark armor, Baron Fallon Riverwynd is speaking quietly with a few of the men. Looking over at the enemies, he seems to be searching for an easy target now. There's no sense of being worried or anything from him, just a calm sense of being ready for attacking now.

"Charge!" The Prince of Mobrin motions across the battlefield toward the enemies with his sword, and the slow walk of the army turns into a full on sprint. Moving quickly, even outpacing a few of those around him to put him out in front, Tyrel clashes with the enemy. In a full on sprint, Tyrel brings his long sword up and slices through the neck of a Laniveer soldier, dropping his head onto the battlefield, causing blood to squirt all over him. He quickly turns his focus on the next victim.

The Laniveer soldier (3) springs into the whirlwind of the fight with a booming roar in his throat, just to make him feel even more self-confident as he is. The man easily runs from all the attackers, when two crowds mingle, making his way straight to the one, who is from some kind of high position, judging from the shiny armor and fancy sword. Soldier swings with his sword and tries to hit the oponent (Conall), but that man dodges, tossing his counter attack at Laniveer soldier, who is saved by the armour and just growls as wild dog, preparing for his next move. Fiery eyes are stabed at his oponent.

Moving forward towards his opponent, Robben aims a hard swing for the man's abdomen, but the hit only hits the armor. And in return, he gets a hit to his hand, which causes the Ruxton to let out a few choice words, as he moves to attack once again.

Leading the charge for Sutherland forces Cedric engages the laniveer leader(4) and brings his blade down across the mans hand but hits at a odd angle as Cedrics blade is deflected even as his opponets blade score a solid hit on his own shiny armor. Giving it a huge rent as his opponets blade seems to have found a weak spot in his armor.

Conall does charge in, landing a hit on his enemy. Although it seems it doesn't do more than perhaps stun the enemy for a brief second or so, preparing to continue his swinging. Around him hearing the cries of death as people on both sides stumble and fall.

As if on command there is another one heading for the head of the prince of Mobrin, not much different than the one who just lost his head.

Moving with the grace of an experienced swordsman, Fallon slashes into his opponent's armor, while dancing out of the way of the incoming blow now. "Too bad," he comments to the man, before attempting to slash at the neck of his opponent now.

Soldier#5 clutches his chest and lets out a shriek as he's attacked by Fallon, even as he tries to return an attack in kind, sword lamely pursuing his attacker though it misses. With the follow through he's coughing up blood which foams red at his mouth, sputtering out of his helmet as he staggers back as if just realizing, even though he screamed, that he's bleeding out of his chest. Breathing heavily his hand will raise up to his armored chest as blood pools out, hoarse breathes of air taken in, a quick glance given around to the battle field as his soft brown eyes take in the mayhem around him. Thankfully his sword is attached to his wrist and so he's able to raise it up to try and keep himself out of harms way. Steeling himself he'll move to run in for another attack even as he feels his lifes blood draining away from him, vision becoming hazy. Staggering forwards he will try for another attack.

Upon seeing the Sutherland already taking damage, the unknown healer rushes to his side intent on tending to him in between his attacks, so after he swings, she will soak up the blood, then she will wrap a quick bandage around him before stepping back again.

The forces continue to clash as soldier after soldier is dropped. Blood runs along the ground, and men scream in agony. Tyrel moves past the beheaded opponent he dropped, attacking at another man, barely missing his neck and slicing into his shoulder. He then takes a shot to the abdomen from the same opponent, his armor kinking slightly from the blow. He staggers back a couple of steps, letting out a low growl, before moving to take another swipe at the opponent.

Cedric looks greatful to the healers attention as he smiles and "pardon.. " as he has to once more engage with his foe. this time scoring a good hit on Lan (4) leg where the armor is weakest, and while not a severe blow at least he drew blood as he dances out of the mans returning swing. "Not this time my friend. " he says with joy and gests ready for another pass.

Considering his oponent for a moment, not hearing all the screams around, not seeing all the bloodshet, the Laniveer soldier (3) springs to his next attack, but he is too late. The sword of his oponent (Conall) goes straight to man's leg, making him stumble. The Laniveer soldier's scream ripples through the battle field as the roar of dieing wolf. THe tries to hit his opened back, but misses and the only thing, which is left for him - try to stand up before the next slice from his oponent.

Still trying to attack his own enemy, Robben at least manages to dent the man's armor, while managing to get out of the way of the incoming enemy strike. Taking one step to the side, to gain some room, the Ruxton's sword comes in once more.

Moving from one to another, the healer only heals those in desperate need and when the next takes a hit, she moves in to deal with him, attempting to stay out of the sights of the enemy while she works.

Conall dances easily and cuts the leg, seeing the swing go wide as his opponent tries to strike him. Just having a sinister grin behind his armor. Laughing a bit hauntily even. Running in to cut his opponent again.

As Ciarrah is making her way to help Fallon another one rushes at her from behind, easily in sight for Fallon. As well as anyone else that might be close.

Attacking the enemy quite viciously now, Fallon lets out a bit of a howl as his own neck takes a bit of a bad hit. Pausing a little as he sees the healer moving for him, he then sees the enemy heading for said healer. "Get out of the way!" he roars, moving for the enemy as soon as he can now, sword ready for a vicious slash.

Soldier5 quickly finds himself culled, but not before he gets a good hit in on Fallon, brown eyes lighting up in triumph before Fallons own sword finds his neck; only he is not a he and is really a she, woman pulling off her helmet as she drops down to her knees, neck spurting out with each beat of her heart, 'LEINMAN' She called out in a howl, eyes growing heavy as her helmet drops from her fingertips and rolls away, body finding purchase in the bloodied grass and dirt on her side, golden locks of blonde hair soon coated in her own blood as brown eyes fade away as she looks up at the sky; woe. Her husband is still fighting and not near enough to see his dear wife has fallen.

Tyrel growls at his opponent once more, swinging his long sword at the mans chest. The Laniveer soldier dances to the side, causing Tyrel to miss. A wide grin spreads on his opponents face as he thinks he has Tyrel defeated. A look of pleasure spreads on the Laniveer's face, as he swings his sword. However, Tyrel ducks out of the way, sidestepping himself to dodge the attack.

As Laniveer solider(4) and cedric still fight Cedric's blow just barely miss's while the Laniveer soldiers blow should have struck the Duke of sutherland but he dodges out of the way just in time. "Ooohh that was close but not this time." as he taunts his opponet.

It is said, that when a person finds himself in an incredible danger, unknown strength wakes up in his heart. Likely, the same happens to the Laniveer soldier (3). The man gathers all his left powers and stands up, raising his both hands together with the sword as he would be the bear, who attacks the innocent deer. However, even if his hit was so powerful, in man's eyes, it was stoped by a fancy armour and oponent's sword sliced his own, not too good armour, which was baught from the last money Laniveer soldier had, hoping that it will bring the luck to him. Luck and women's attention. However, all what it braught is the sharp edge of the man in a fancy armour. Full of pain mumble leaves Laniveer soldier's throat and he falls on the ground besides others, finding the peace in his life. Finally.

It's only a small hit to the arm, but at least Robben manages to pierce through his enemy's armor now. Seeing the enemy's swing go wide, he moves in for the man's abdomen, frowning quite a bit now.

Surprised when she is suddenly attacked, the healer, once she has treated Fallon, beats a hasty retreat… otherwise she knows she would earn the ire of a certain Prince. Maybe two of them!

Trying to get himself in a good position to strike at the enemy that targeted the healer, Fallon frowns as there's armor being hit. As the healer makes her retreat, the Baron calls out after her. "Stay in the back where it's safe, idiot." Turning towards the enemy again now.

Conall does move swiftly and meeting the sword of his enemy as to reduce the strength and he sends his own sword to the chest of his opponent to bring him down. Letting his gaze go over the area. Spotting people further in the back of the Laniveer line, killing off one soldier after the other. Although still too far away to allow for an attack from the main group of soldiers. Pushing to continue fighting as they start to gather more. Clearly that champion in the back allowing for more of the Laniveers to get into a good position.

Soldier8, a tall wide whip of a man who's claimed his own fair share of kills already in this battle, gleaming armor splattered not only with blood but brain and guts as he swept through the field and culled those Mobrinites like the debris they are. His breathing is even and grin beneath his helmet is fierce the man caught up in blood lust. He even stoops down to pluck up a body by its hair, slicing off its head and kicking it off towards the Mobranites, the mans head with graying brown hair and a wickedly awesome handlebar mustache goes flying off to bounce off heads and bodies as it may. In its wake Soldier8 will push forwards, heading towards Conall looking to parry with the man a bit; get in a few good hits and bring the man down to his knees to beg. Well, that's the plan.

Tyrel swings his heavy sword toward his opponent once more, and is baffled as the man dodges his attack. "Son of a goat herder!" He shouts at the man, before taking a shot to his hand, which does very little, in fact, Tyrel doesn't even seem to notice as his armor shields most of the damage. He grumbles something under his breath and readies for another attack.

The attack on her person has put the fear of the fight in the healer and for the moment, she remains at the back, out of the direct line of the attacks. Hopefully!

Once more around and around Cedric and the laniveer solider4 go, this time with annoyance Cedric over copmesates and blows a strike that should have done severe damage to his opponet but his oppenet gets a lucky blow on the opposite side he hit before, and draws the Dukes blood .." Arrgh! now you've done it you blasted fool.. " as Cedric seems to have gotten realy pissed.

Slaughtering common enemies around him, incredibly small man, who is barely seen from the ground springs to the left and to the right like a small rabbit or frenetic gusts of wind. It is really hard for enemies to catch his side, but he is very good on sending home-thrusts staight to his enemies legs, making them all fall on the ground screaming, crying or maybe even pissing in their armoured pants. The stink of fear and dead bodies starts floating around and the small man is the first one to catch that aroma with his nose. Though, likely, he is very experianced soldier, because that does not confuse him and does not make him to vomit, as young men, who see the war first time sometimes does. Laniveer soldier (9) just makes his way, trying to find more interesting target, and his eyes catches the sight of the man in fancy armour, who just sliced the chest of another soldier. The small man springs near his new target, maybe a little bit too excited, because he does not see the dead body on his way and stumbles. That makes his hit go somewhere very close near his opponed, but not touches him. However, man is lucky, that his armour saves him from carelessness. The tiny man straightens for his next atack.

Moving in hard and fast, Fallon slashes ruthlessly at the neck of his opponent, ignoring the light hit he takes to his abdomen now. "Nice try," he remarks, moving in for another attack now.

Missing and dodging now, Robben moves in a bit more aggressively, shaking his head a little bit to himself.

The plan did not go according to plan! Soldier8 grunts as he gets into position to attack Conall who attacks him and hits his armor only to have it do nothing. Thank the sweet Everything for armor and amazing pectorals to buoy them up. Letting out a guttural roar he will swing his sword around to try and bring Conall down, only the fellow dodges out of his way, "COME NOW MOBRIN. THIS IS YOUR BEST?" You know, he roared that out. In anger, going in again to attack Conall.

<OOC> Robben ouches.

Conall smirks, "Not going to be that easy." He says, though the double team does let a hit be sent to Conall who cries out but doesn't seemed too pained. Going for the solder to kill him, the one that hit him that is. The armor doing a good job but still a bit injured.

The tiny man (soldier 9) laughing loudly jumps on his feet and withdraws from the dead body. Seeing, that another soldier approaches to his target, tiny man grins widely, though it can't be seen through armor, but his sparkling eyes betray that. Laniveer soldier sways with his sword playfully. He appears in the right, then in the left, then again in the right, waiting for the right moment. And when the other Laniveer soldier is close enough, tiny man sends his hit to the right leg of the fancy man, letting the laughter out, which is totally not suitable for the scene around, if you are not a crazy man with the marble heart, which, likely, beats in tiny man's chest. However, his opponed didges and remains safe from the hit. Though, he is distracted by another Laniveer soldier and the tiny man has a possibility to concentrate his attack on another leg.

Cedrics grinning now as he avoids the laniveer soldier4's blow and lands a solid hit on the mans neck drawing blood "Now your getting this.. I hit you dont and then /you/ die!!" as he comes around for another pass, hopeing to this time end the mans life so that he can aid his comrades.

Managing to hit someone, Robben stumbles backwards after a hit to his neck. Going more defensive, he raises his voice a bit. "If anyone's needing something to do now, I could use some assistance here…"

Tyrel swings his sword hard at his opponent, letting out a fierce growl. His sword, however, bounces clean off the man's armor. Stunned, Tyrel looks at his sword as if to see what is wrong with it. He looks back to his opponent just in time to see his weapon bounce off his own armor. "Whoo!" The Prince sidesteps and begins dancing around the man to taunt him.

Another light hit is taken, and this time, it causes Fallon's attack to miss. He growls a bit as he turns to move in with another attack now.

Soldier8 attacks Conall in his groin area, large sword swung around in one hand like he was twirling a walking stick before he snaps in on his right foot and attacks with a jab of his sword, quickly snaking around and dropping down to a knee to avoid any swings his way before he's popping back up with a laugh, seeing fresh blood on the tip of his sword. Pulling back into a low stance he'll nod at Conall, "Again?" Yes, like asking for another dance.

Upon seeing the attack on the Ruxton, Ciarrah once more puts herself in the way of the danger to help assist him in between his attacks on the enemy. She has her necessary bandages out and a look of concern in her eyes as she approaches, but first she looks for Tyrel… only when she sees him still standing does she go to the Ruxton.

Oh, that's what Soldier8 gets for going after the baby makers. Even though he gets one more light nick in he suddenly sees nothing and goes down heavily; FLOMP. Into the ground. Ded.

Yes, at first the tiny man, barely seen from the ground is ready to hit the left foot of his opponent, but seeing that another Laniveer soldier has enough fun with that fancy guy, tiny man looks around the field. People are slaughtering each other, without glancing at the small man around. For this reason he walks through the field as it would be just random street full of stalls and goods. Tiny man hums some kind of melody under his nose, which can be heared through his helmet. Finally after taking some more steps and tickling some more legs of Mobrin army, tiny man catches the sight of the even more fancy man in the field. "Likely he is the main guy, huh?" mumbles the laniveer soldier under his nose and springs straight near that man, who is busy with another enemy. This gives a perfect possibility successfully hit Prince's left leg, though, just slightly.

As the fight continues the champion of the Laniveer does move in quick steps and with his sword high towards Tyrel to take him out. A challenge perhaps.

As Conall takes more damage he still manages to bring his opponent down, as he said he would. Then running towards the one that moved from him to attack Tyrel. With the hero it seems the Mobrin prince might need help.

Cedric seem to let out a sigh of relief as while he avoids the blow from the laniveer soldier4 he was fighting his blow manages to hit a major artery as the Man slumps to the ground as he bleeds out, allowing Cedric time to see who needs aid.

Tyrel continues dancing around his opponent, moving to his left. He watches him, spinning his sword around slowly as he sizes the man up. Suddenly, with an immense amount of ferocity, he swings his swords heavily at the man's neck. The Laniveer's head drops to the ground and rolls across the battle field, tripping another Laniveer which causing him to die.

Slashing at the enemy's neck again, Fallon ends up leaving himself open for an attack. And that's when he gets a sword stuck in his chest, and the Baron falls over, dropping his own weapon right now. He's still alive, though.

Able to at least get a bandage on the Ruxton, the healer then notices the one who called her an idiot fall… still, she has to help and she moves to his side, uncaring now if she makes herself a target as she tries to assist him and get him back in the fight. They needed all of the soldiers they could get.

Pausing as he sees the healer coming for him, Robben makes sure to keep himself between the opponent and her. Managing to avoid the incoming blow, he hits only the armor of the man. The healer gets a brief smile, though. "Thank you."

Alongside the hero of the Laniveers is a Duke. Perhaps the one in charge of the troops. With the hero being the best warrior on the field. Or maybe he is just responsible for a small part of the army. Either way it does seem that he is gunning for the Sutherland Duke.

After the seccessful attack of the main guy to his left foot, tiny man looks around and catches the sight of his old enemy, who looks like won the dancing competition against another Laniveer soldier. Tiny man grins once more under his helmet and springs in the crowd. Just to vanish from the sight of the approaching enemy, who, likely, hopes to help the main man in the field. Tiny man runs trhough the dead bodies and fighting people around him, when he finally takes off from some poor guy, whose helmet together with his body is resting on the ground. The jump is very accurate and tiny man grabs the shoulder of the fancy man (Conall), trying to send the hit with another hand to enemy's neck, but Conall dudges and while tiny man is falling on the ground - tries to hit him, but armor once more saves the tiny man.

With a swagger like McJagger, Lan Hero squares up against Tyrel and gets nicked on his arm in the process which draws a hiss out from between his clenched teeth, his own weapon coming up to strike at the man. Alas, Tyrel is too quick and Lan Hero amps up his game, going in for the same attack with hopefully more success.

Cedric is about to engage possibly the armies hero but when he starts he notices someone headed his way. So cedric move to engage the willing man, whom he noices as the Duke Callohan "ahh well met sir.. Shame that your blood will end here tonight on these grounds. " as he swings his blade to impact the mans chest armor and his blow is stoped solidly even as the enemy Dukes blow is blocked by Cedrics left arm armor.

When the healer is able to bring Fallon back around, she offers him a final smack on his cheek before she realizes that he is well and truly awake now. She stands and notices Conall. Hurt. Oh no! She rushes to his side intent on healing him too.

Conall is doing his best but with all the injuries he is taking he is a bit dizzy. Not noticing the soldier running for the healer. At least not right away. As he does he charges for that Soldier with his sword aimed at him. Seeing Robben approaching from the other side.

Blinking a few times as he's smacked on the cheek, Fallon is starting to look a bit angrily as the healer hurries off. Then he seems to realize where he is, and gets hold of his sword, attacking the soldier above him.

Tyrel takes the shot to his chest from the Hero, staggering back only a step. His eyes narrow, and for the first time in the battle, he flips the mask down on his helmet, glaring at the man through the visor as he begins circling. After a moment, he rushes toward the hero, slashing toward him but only hitting his arm.

Managing to take out the enemy he was fighting, Robben looks around, before he spots one of the nearest enemies, the one near Conall. And that enemy is going after the healer now? Robben hurries forward, to aim a slash for the enemy soldier's face.

Lan Hero tries to attack Tyrel, but misses, a heavy miss, and finds himself instead with a massive headache. And then down he goes, first to his knees then down onto his side, eyes wide.

Not getting a possibility to hit his target, tiny man looks around the field. His dark gaze sees how another man is approaching to attack him, together with the healer. Laniveer soldier's gaze slips through the three people around him. However, the healer gets all his attention. Tiny man jumps on his feet and starts running straight to that woman, whispering under his nose "That creature raises people from the dead. She must join them for our kingdom's sake!" and he starts swaying with his sword, hoping that another man will miss.
And it looks like his tiny legs did the job right. The man run away from the new guy, who was trying to hit him to the head, his sword kissed a leg of the healer. The tiny man starts laughing full of pride and at this moment, when he is distrackted with by his luck, he forgets his older opponed and is hit by him, though, armor reduces the damage. Man just roars and prepares his next move.

The healer stands and notices Conall. Hurt. Oh no! She rushes to his side intent on healing him too. But on the way to help, she draws the attention of the enemy who finds her leg with his sword and she stumbles to the ground near the feet of the Aberdeen prince, a cry escaping her lips as the pain of the cut registers and she bleeds on her dress and robe. Determined, she forces herself to stand and attempt to bandage Conall.

Cedric attack the duke Callohan and barely misses the mans exposed neck but at he miss's the duke get a solid hit on him causing Cedric to stagger back wards a bit and grunt. "Nice shot.. a good thing it'll be your last. " as he gets ready to go at his opponet again.

Conall does notice who the healer is. Running to bring down that soldier quickly. "Leave her alone!" He roars out as he swings his sword for the neck of the soldier.

Working on his way to the feet, Fallon swings the sword upwards, hitting his enemy rather hard in the abdomen. That done, he looks around for a new target, moving for the Duke that is duking it out with Duke Cedric, steps a bit uncertain.

Missing his swing, Robben frowns a bit before he moves for the soldier again. There's a brief look to the healer as she gets hit. "Are you okay?" he asks, sounding a bit worried, before he moves in for another attack at the enemy soldier.

Tyrel dances around the Hero, twisting the swords in his hand. The Hero suddenly rushes toward him growling low in his throat. Tyrel sidesteps, swinging his sword up, slashing at his head with a flick of his wrist. The Hero staggers backward, staring at Tyrel as the heir of Mobrin steps to the side once more, just in case… watching. Then, the Hero falls. He then notices Cedric in trouble, and turns toward the northern noble, sprinting toward him as he shouts, trying to get his attention.

When tiny man reaches his goal, hitting the healer, he turns all his power, energy, anger, it doesn't matter how you call it, to his older opponent in a fancy armour. "Huh, you again!" he hisses and runs straight to the man as fast as Laniveer soldier can. He fiercely sways with his sword and, when finaly is close enough, jumps in the air, sending his sword to man's neck, not giving too much attention at the another man, who still tries to hit the tiny man. However, he misses the target, but is very lucky on springing right and left, just avoiding the hits from both attackers. Incredibly loud laugh ripples through the bloody field "So huge and so slow!" *Muhaahaha*

Cedric once more goes for Callohan's neck even as he gets hit in the chest again. Cedric drops to one knee and in a desperate lunge tries to pierce the dukes neck and miss's barely "Damn not the way to go out.. " he comments.

Many soldiers keep falling around them but with the loss of first the hero going down and then the same for the Duke it does seem that the forces of Mobrin and Aberdeen takes the upper hand, if not easily winning the battle.

Despite the small soldier able to shift and dodge a lot Conall keeps charging at him. Able to let the sword miss himself. "Fast enough to dodge." He says as he sends his own sword against the tiny one again."Keep pushing!" He calls out loudly.

Grateful when she manages to help Conall, the healer gasps as she limps to Cedric, noting his wounds were worse than Tyrel's. As she gets to Cedric, she looks weary, unused to the battlefield, and struggles to pull a bandage free to assist him.

The shout of Tyrel Kilgour was heard by nearly everyone on the battlefield, but not the Duke of Laniveer. Duke Callohan is circling Cedric, ready to make his attack. He does, causing Cedric to stumble, but as his sword begins to drop the Duke of Sutherland to his death, Tyrels sword peirces the northern noble through the chest. The northern Duke crumbles to his knees, blood squirting from his mouth. Tyrel then turns toward another enemy, ready to end his life.

The battle is nearing conclusion, as bodies litter the ground, moving out of site over a nearby hillside. The remaining Laniveeri, less than ten thousand men, are in full on retreat - at least, the ones who can run. The army of Mobrin suffered substantial loss, but over 25,000 southern soldiers are still standing on this battlefield, many of them finishing off the Laniveeri who are not able to get away.

"Dodgy little…" Robben mutters, before he sees the enemy turning for him, and he lets out a bit of a growl as he aims for the enemy once more. "Come on, to your doom."

Having done what he can to help taking down the Duke Callohan, Fallon stumbles a bit to his knees now, grimacing as he takes a few moments of pause now.

Seeing that the healer managed to give some energy back, to his immortal enemy's body, tiny man glances around the field. Most of his colleagues are dead and there is no possibility to win against that immortal creature in the fancy armour. For this reason, tiny man chooses another tactic. He runs from his immortal enemy straight to the one, who is so eager to hit the head of the tiny soldier. Roar and laugh mixes under his helmet, when the tiny men extends his sword straight to the abdomen of that another enemy. But the armour saves that enemy and TINY MAN IS HIT and his tiny body is sliced by three swords. But tiny man straightens the last time, bravely preparing for his last spring.

This time managing to hit the head of the enemy, Robben groans a bit as a hit makes his armor give off a sound. "Why can't you just… die…?" he growls out, moving to swing at the enemy again now.

Conall continues to attack the small one and even witth all their cuts he still does not go down. Raising his own sword Conall makes for another attack.

Tyrel slashes as the small man, carving out a small slice of his chest. Certain the small man is dead, he steps past him, sliding his sword into the scabbard on his side as he surveys the battlefield, counting in his head, looking and observing. He doesn't even notice the tiny man running off. His helmet comes off, and is actually tossed on the ground beside him. He pats a Rioga on the shoulder as he walks past, still counting in his head.

All swaying to one side and another, but still with a brave heart in his tiny chest, tiny man steps closer near the one, who wishes him dead so badly. He raises the sword, even if that thing is so heavy now, when his tiny body is all bloody from his own warm blood. But obviously, his attack can't be effective, when three men attacked and one is already leaving after successful hit, but leaves two others to finish the tiny man.
However, incredibly huge strenght waked up in tiny heart and the second hit from the tiny man finally goes straight to the neck of the enemy. His tiny body has to face some other serious attacks, but the Laniveer soldier gathers his last strenght to stand straight and whispers more and more loudly: "It took three strong men to finish the tiny one… SHAME on you MOBRIN!" his joyful shout can be heared the last time in the whole field as echo brings the words back and is followed by cough. Some blood from his mouth appears "I die as hero of this battle! As the largest soldier of all!.." and his tiny body falls on the ground, from the hit of the Conall, bluring with the hundreds of other dead bodies, but smile remains on his face and his dark eyes are staring somewhere in the sky.

Again and again they fight until finally Rob will manage to get the tiny one. Looking over at Robben as he swings his sword at the head of the soldier. Watching curiously. Conall is mostly looking anticipating.

Taking a solid hit to his neck again, Robben mobilizes most of his strength to hit the tiny guy in the head, with quite a bit of force. Stumbling forward as he sees the enemy going down, he falls to his own knees, managing to avoid going face-first into the ground by getting one hand out to hold him up. "Well fought, tiny one," he mutters, as he takes a few deep breaths now. "I think Aemy will be upset with me…" he mutters, before his hand stops holding him up, and he falls forward onto the ground now.

When she has managed to help Robben all she can, the healer just sits on the ground for now, the blood seeping from her wound leaving her dress soaked down her leg. She looks for Conall and Tyrel from her seated position, worry in her eyes because she knew she was not supposed to be here and now.. look at her, she was another hindrance. Forcing herself to her feet, she stumbles towards Tyrel, needing to see how he is for herself.

Thanks to the adminstrations of the healer cedrics wounds have been patched up as best they can be. For now he removes his helm and rests while those not severly wounded proceed to collect the dead and set up a burial detail to handle the bodies.

The adrenaline is now leaving, his heart rate is slowing down. Then, he spots Ciarrah. He narrows his eyes, then runs toward her. "What the hell?" He murmers as he gets near. He then collapses next to her, his arms going around her waist. "I told you not to come." He pulls back, looking at her leg. "You are hurt!" He shakes his head, "I told you not to come!" He doesn't really shout, but he is animated, upset.
