As the moon blocked out the sun and the sky shifted from a rich blue to a dull purple, Mudbrain, a chieftain in the Saragorgak tribe, formed a small group of shamans to travel to the ritual cave; their mission? To perform a sacred ritual to appease Bandos and save Garagorsh-Kaan from his Holy Wrath. They traveled to the Gateway; a captured dwarven minecart station separating the East and the West, which they would have to travel through in order to get to Trollheim wherein the ritual cave is located. The Black Guard had launched a counterattack upon the station, as it was an important trading hub and supply depot, and Mudbrain's warband offered their support to recapture the tunnel. After a skirmish that lasted hours, and thanks to the efforts of Wenkaurg and Pinkhead, the Bandosian forces regained control.

Introduction
;


An age and many years ago, a might Ourg was awoken from his cryogenic slumber within the Temple of Lost Ancients, after spending a millenia locked within magical ice. He summoned his forces and escaped the thawing murderhole, crusanding his way across the barren cliffs of Trollheim. Eventually he came across the greenskin war-camp named Bandos-Kaan, otherwise known as goblin village- It was here he learned of the events which took place in his absence. Gorbuk proclaimed himself Chosen Commander; and those who would not obey were declared foe. Soon, Northern Asgarnia and Trollweiss fell to the newly formed Chosen Battalion, and Gorbuk's army became the most feared and respected warband since the end of the Third Age, and the first permanent Bandosian settlements were founded.

But all was not well within the Battalion's ranks. Numerous rebellions saw Gorbuk at war with his own people, the return and fall of Bandos shook him to his core, a sizable portion of the Battalion were already defecting to Tuska and so he retreated into his Great Hall. The great stone doors shut, and the Ourg was forgotten. Despite this, his legacy remained in tact. Numerious Chosen Commanders rose to fill the power void, turning their focus upon the human lands. The empire expanded, but as it grew it became more of a challenge to govern. After the province of Garagorsh-Kaan was claimed, the empire split in half; separating into into Ekeles- East, and Rekes- West. These days, Chosen Commander is a ceremonial role, the true power split divided between the two halves.

But tensions are rising- a war is brewing; a war that promises no victor. The east and the west jostle and skirmish over the boundaries of their own empire. A war is brewing, indeed: a war that could end the Chosen Battalion for good.

Information
;


This role-play continues the story of the Chosen Battalion, a massive coalition of Bandosian tribes established during the latter years of the Fifth age, based upon the foundations set by Hopespear's Chosen Commander prophecy. With Zanik's betrayal, the Ourg Gorbuk saw the rank as open to be claimed, and claim it he did- smiting anyone who would dare stand in his path. During it's early years, the Battalion grew exponentially, attracting members from a wide range of Races; both Yu'biuskian and not. To civilisation, the Battalion is a zealous horde of warmongering brutes which flits in and out of the political limelight with each Chosen Commander elected. This iteration of the Battalion's story will be told from the perspective of the Saragorgak Tribe, renowned throughout for it's zealous warriors and inquisitive shamans.

An alliance shattered with the retaking of Camelot by the human king Tommen Calderon, whom met with Mudbrain before a quick skirmish ensued. Camelot, previously a vassal state to the province of Garagorsh-Kaan, is now the foe literally on their doorstep. Tensions are high between the two nation states.

Role-Play Summary
;


As the moon blocked out the sun and the sky shifted from a rich blue to a dull purple, the great orange ring in the sky lingered. Shadows fell upon the western reaches of the Battalion's terretories, and their inhabitants feared the worst. The Big High War God was angry. Mudbrain, a chieftain in the Saragorgak tribe, formed a group of shamans to travel to the ritual cave; a neutral ground within the rowdy trollheim mountain range. It is here that a statue of the first Chosen Commander stands proudly, a historic trading point and place of worship for Bandosians since the late Second Age. The charge presented to the group by Warmaster Fulgrash is to travel to the cave and perform the sacred ritual to appease Bandos, and save Garagorsh-Kaan from his holy wrath.

The group set out as a small band with Mudbrain at the head, supported by his fellow shamans Wenkaurg and Pinkhead, alongside a handful of goblins and the Battalion's resident elf, Morgannwg. travelling up to the 'Gateway'; a captured dwarvern minecart station that separates the Ekeles from the Rekes; the East from the West. The dwarvern Black Guard had launched a counterattack upon the station, as it was an important trading hub and supply depot for Ice Mountain and the Grand Exchange. Hordes of goblins were in a stalemate with the dwarves, who were holed up inside the remains of the bar, with a short-range cannon. The tide was turned multiple times in a hours-long skirmish between the Bandosian forces and Keldagrim's finest, zealots crashing upon the stoic, sturdy battle lines of the dwarves.

Role-Play Summary
;


The battle was starting to look bleak for the goblins- broken ranks of the dwarvern lines reformed quickly and efficiently, cannon blasts pounding the attacking force literally into the ground, with no way to flank around and claim the red room. The small warband offered support to the goblins attempting to contain the Black Guard, and after a brief speech, they attacked oncemore. Wenkaurg and Mudbrain split the handfuls of greenskins under their command into two forces to engage the stout defenders at different points, leaving the cannon open to be attacked from across the room by Pinkhead. After unleasing spells of varying success and changing the tide of the battle for better and worse, Pinkhead was vital in keeping the dwarves on their toes and thus, giving the Bandosians the upper hand.

With Mudbrain out of comission after recieving a chunk of shrapnel to the chestplate from a cannon shot and Wenkaurg duelling the Black Guard's champion, the goblins became confused and disorganised oncemore, almost completely pushed back to the door. Eventually, the champion was slain with Wenkaurg suffering a broken wrist from the fight, and thus the Black Guard's attacks became more fierce. The hobgoblin shaman found himself behind the Black Guard's defensive line, and blasted the cannon with an air spell- causing it to rise from it's supports and face the ceiling, just as it was fired. The lead shot ball hit the weakned roof beam above, causing it to rupture and unlease a cascade of rubble atop of the cannon crew and the dwarvern lines. In the confusion, the Bandosians claimed victory.

Race: Ork
Gender: Male
Appearence: Slightly taller than average with salvaged armour covering thick, leathery skin. His weapon of choice would be a savage mace with, occasionally, a shield. Bolg has shaped his tusks to be smaller in effort to be more efficient.
Personality: Displaying a respectable degree of intelligence for an Ork, Bolg is keen on treachery band violence to achieve his aims. He is, however, extremely loyal to the Bandosian ideal, and radically hopes that it will consume the world.
History: One of the few survivors from a small settlement which was wiped out by mercenaries, Bolg has joined up to the Battalion to see humanity suffer.
Other: Very rusty on fighting, could do with some sessions as I've never really used a mace before.

Additional details: Hunted down a Hobbit named Bilbo and some Dwarves.

Personality: Stanktoe is nothing short of a glory seeker. He's motivated by his desire to show his strength in Bandos' memory.

History: He was just another goblin in his little village with big dreams of killing mahjarrat like his old man. Does Stanktoe even know what a mahjarrat is? Not really. Stanktoe thought a random farmer on his way to the market was a mahjarrat. He wasn't. Stanktoe killed him anyway and took his sickle as spoils.

Other: happy now?

Role-Play Summary
;


Running for his life, the elven farmer clung onto his infant daughter- bearing little else than the clothes on his back. Behind him, his entire world was collapsing. His homestead illuminated by the very flames that destroyed it, and infested with the squat beasts which feasted upon what remained. Evil war horns resonate throughout the no man's land that was forming between the Camelite border and the Wailing Wall of the Chosen Battalion. Evidently, the uneasy peace between the neighboring regions had all but crumbled, and now a host of villagers paid the price whilst the battle lines formed and the foes prepared the hounds of war. Acres of lush farmland became scorched and wounded as the Battalion's forces prepared trenches and traps in anticipation for the enemy.

Role-Play Summary
;


After a brief combat with Xel Praven, the Pygmy Cyclopean chief Euclid was defeated, having bled out after fainting due to exhaustion. As promised, the settlement of Garagorsh-Kaan was dismantled in less than a day, and the goblins inhabiting it returned to their homes in White Wolf Mountain and Trollheim. The city itself was in ruin, charred and brazenly vandalised by the goblin celebrations following Euclid's defeat, with fields salted and random traps spread throughout the ruins, topped off with a nice treat; the well in Catherby's square overflowing with feces, the Cyclopes' dismembered head sitting atop of it. A skeleton crew of goblins remained at the wall, to make the recapturing as annoyingly inconvenient as possible, and all of the battalion's slaves were found either crucified or chained to the floors of cesspits.

The scene served as grim proof of the necessity of Camelot's liberation of the region.
