Millennium Tree<br> </font> </div> <div class="y_msg_container"><br>[GM]<br>Vesper soon catches up with the scouts, who are already three quarters<br>of the way up the hill. As they approach the top, the smell of the<br>smoke becomes clear. A bit oily, but also the smell of burning wood as<br>well.<br><br>Finally they reach the top and are overlooking a wide shallow valley.<br>Towering in front of them is the Millennium Tree, towering hundreds of<br>feet into the air. Just beyond it is the nexus, flaring with latent<br>energy.<br><br>Surrounding the tree is a makeshift ring of stones, wood, old<br>vehicles, chunks of concrete and earth. Surrounding it is what looks<br>like an entire Splugorth division; Kydian Powerlords, Kittani, slaver<br>barges with their slavers and blind warrior women, tattooed men, the<br>freakish Metzlains and even a unit of Gargoyles.<br><br>On the defender's side are some units of New Camelot infantry, local<br>folk, what look
like a couple of Technowizards and several other mages<br>(probably ley line walkers). There are also several nymphs, sylphs, a<br>whole legion of faeries, giants, a red dragon as well as several<br>gryphons. Despite the Splugorth's impressive military power, the<br>inhabitants of the tree seem to be holding their own in a pitched<br>battle.<br><br>Still, the one thing there doesn't seem to be obvious way to<br>accomplish is actually getting to the tree. There are at least six or<br>seven thousand Splugorth soldiers below.<br>[/GM]<br><br>--<br>Aaron Clausen<br><a ymailto="mailto:email@example.com" href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a><br>_______________________________________________<br>Taocowpbem mailing list<br><a ymailto="mailto:Taocowpbem@zork.net" href="mailto:Taocowpbem@zork.net">Taocowpbem@zork.net</a><br><a href="http://zork.net/mailman/listinfo/taocowpbem"
