    Today Britain was again attacked by the forces of evil! The brave townspeople, already weary from previous attacks were out running around in confusion and fear as Greater Dragons and Ancient Wyrms advanced on the city. These creatures were accompanied by what appear to be mercenary forces. Enemy warriors, some ranked as high as General were captured and killed. Often they would have well-crafted weapons, perhaps indicating they may have been preparing for this conflict for some time.

    Through teamwork and cooperation, the many powerful warriors, mages and tamers of Sosaria slowly but surely destroyed the invaders. Just as the town was thought to be cleared, a magnificent Crimson Dragon appeared.

    This reptile is reported to have magical powers far and beyond even the Greater Dragons. Etheral fire would belch from it's gaping mouth, incinerating even well armored warriors! At times it would case numerous fire-fields and could summon a pillar of fire that ascended towards the heavens.

    Amazingly, the Crimson Dragon could also speak our tongue... though some say it used telepathy to plant words of fear directly into the minds of those fighting it.

    Once defeated, gold and gems showered forth from the creature and it was found to have been carrying a large amount of weapons and armor in it's belly. Perhaps it was transporting them to other hostile forces when it was intercepted by our valliant warriors!

    **********************************************************

    Not long after the Battle of Britain, a Crimson Dragon was sighted in Yew! A much smaller number of warriors took on this fearsome beast and were victorious!

    Lady Rachel was tending the wounded and putting her own impressive powers of Magery to good use!

    Lord Raven acted as a lightning rod... probably all that gold armor!

    [​IMG]

    This Crimson Dragon also had it's own special powers and gave the warriors an long and difficult battle!

    [​IMG]

    In the end, Honor and Valor claimed victory over the evil reptile! The brave warriors were kind enough to pause, just for a moment, so that they could be sketched for posterity!

    Let us hope that the sacrifices made by the men and women who fought and died today have helped prevent further bloodshed and suffering in our lands!

    Safe Travels, Sam

    Looks like Lex had some help. There were 6 also in the party that defeated the Crimson in Yew. I didn't see any Tamers in your party, though it's hard to tell just from a sketch. So many folks seem to voice an opinion that many of the creatures of these lands can only be taken down by a Tamer with a Greater Dragon, and here we have proven that when Warriors and Mages work as a team, cross-healing and resurrecting their comrades... there is no beast that can threaten our lands!

    The team in Yew consisted of three melee fighters attacking the beast directly, one archer and two mages.

    The battle in Britain had a large number of combatants including Tamers with Dragons and Cu's. The Tamers certainly do take the heat off the warriors when they are able to assist!

    Safe Travels, Sam

    Lex had 4 archers, 1 mage, 1 dexer from the people in the picture.

    A courrier rushes into Sam's office, shoving a clipboard onto the desk and knocking Sam's Mandrake Tea to the floor.

    "What! Goodness, my tea!" Sam wipes the spilled tea off his desk with the sleeve of his robe.

    "Sign here..." The courrier holds a quill expectantly.

    Sam signs the receipt for the urgent dispatch and accepts the documents.

    "Hmmm... the Crimson Dragons have been spotted in Britain again... I thought we defeated them..."

    Sam pulls out some sketches and looks them over.

    "It looks as if the whole town is aflame in this one!"

    "Oh, and this seems to confirm my theory that the Crimson Dragons are acting as transports... their bellies are filled with weapons!"

    Sam leans backward and tugs on a rope... back in the messenger's room a bell jingles and a young lad rushes to the reporters desk...

    "Here... um... Zag Zig... you're in Communications?" Sam doesn't wait for an answer as he shoves the envelope into the lads hands.

    "Take this to the printing room immediately... this needs to be in the next edition of the news! Hurry lad! Tell them I want the front page!"
