4/1/13: Blackgate Borderland
Zabbles is a new recruit we have picked up in our humble guild. I, Odid, was sharping my daggers when Zabbles entered my office, "I would really appreciate an opportunity to head into battle." I nodded and sheathed my daggers, and then I grabbed my shortbow, "Lets go then." We headed down Lion's Arch to the portals to the battlegrounds. I noticed that Zabbles held unto his longbow tight. "Are you nervous?", I asked Zabbles as we walked a long. "NO, I am actually excited about taking on the enemy." I smiled and chuckled, and Zabble's hound followed behind. We decided to go into Blackgate borders, and I showed the Asura our papers of permissionto enter. We walked up to the portal and entered in. Moments later we stood in Blackgate's borderland. Sanctum of Rall Army made a camp at a fort we had created. A few commanders were out in the field, and we decided to follow them out to the main field.
We ended up at North Bay Supply where Blackgate had come to defend it. We faced them on, they out numbered the current SoR Army, but Jade Quarry came in behind, of which pulled BG back to defend their Supply. "Zabbles, stay with the commander at all costs..." More SoR Army units joined into the fight. "This is amazing," Zabbles replied as we followed into the frey on the Supply Camp. SoR Army cleaned up the mess and eventually took over the Supply Camp.
The Commanders decided to make the move on Woodhaven for Jade Quarry was attacking Blackgate's Garrison. A small number of BG soldiers tried holding off the full force of our army. You can see the arrows, magic, and AOE's all over the walls of Woodhaven and the grounds our army tredded. Eventually the rams smash down the doors, and the defenses could not slow down our force. We quickly set up siege defenses to make sure Blackgate does not flank so easily.
"This is awesome, I could not imagine this to be this way." Zabbles stands on the wall and observes the Garrison from afar. "This is only the beginning my friend." Zabbles has his bow ready, and we can already see BG creeping on the edges of their cidatel cliffside. Our commanders took 75% of the army north to hit several Supply camps. The BG Army charged off the cliff attacking Woodhaven. We sent out messages to our commanders to come aid. A few new soldiers came up from the West to support us and we were able to push them off. Zabbles made many excelent shots into numbers of the GB Army. Soon our Commanders charged in pushing BG into their garrison.
SoR Army decided to make some trebuchets on Woodhaven to attack the Garrison. BG took this as a major threat and tried to consider a counter on us. They built a Trebuchet in Garrison to attack Woodhaven's wall. Zabbles and I stood there idol as the trebuchet shots continued to slowly take down the wall. The Army of BG tried to push on Woodhaven several times. Eventually the Woodhaven wall fell as the giant BG Army charged, but they hit a huge number of resistence from our army and our siege. A great battle took place as our soldiers fired upon our enemies. Zabbles had a smile on his face as he fired his arrows into the armors of the BG Army. A rush of fury seemed to creep into me as I fired my shortbow with bomb tips. I can see the numbers of people's lifeforce slowly leave their bodies. The BG Army was obliterated by the forces of SoR. We only lost a few, of which we were able to ressurrect or even heal. Zabbles stood at the wall excited about what just transpired. He felt like a warrior, a victor. I stood by him, remembering all the past wars I have faced. See the soldiers I lost, the friends who I only see ghosts of, and the many blood I shed and created. I patted Zabbles on the back, "Good job my friend, now we face the garrison..."
