We congratulate the players Joebob and manticora upon annihilation of an Arch-Ruin on 05.05.18 and winning 28 222 Black Gems.

Looking forward to reading the Story about the great feat!

Before the sun was rising a messenger arrived at the Palace of Lords in Polaris. He was exhausted from his journey and delivered his message to the Magistrate in Polaris.

“Emperor JoeBob reports finding a great ruin and that he needs assistance to handle the hordes of monsters!”
The magistrate in Polaris reviewed the message and dismissed the message. Manticora was working night and day and he feared waking him up if it was a false report. As the magistrate stewed over whether he should deliver the message or wait until he was awake. After a short time one of Manticora’s own explorers returned with fear and joy in his eyes.
“Lord! I have found one of the ancient ruins! There were hordes of monsters!”

The Magistrate then knew the original message was real and he was risking his own life if he didn’t awake his master with the urgent message. He sent his messenger to awake Manticora with the urgent news. Meanwhile he sent additional messengers out to the generals to prepare the troops.

Manticora arrived in the Palace already dressed for war. Through the years he had heard of many tales of other leaders finding and destroying the fabled Arch Ruins and getting away with enormous amounts of the priceless black gems. Now it was his chance and he wasn’t going to delay. He quickly dispatched a messenger back to JoeBob to ready his armies and attack the ruin.
In the meantime, he sent his spies to determine what he was going to be up against.

Hordes of monsters were defending the ruin, along with a great monster named Meranan. While Manticora had bested numerous monster heroes before, he had never encountered one with such armies. Knowing it would be a vicious battle he prepared all his troops that were not staying in the local ressurector and he awaited the report that JoeBob was on the way. Within minutes JoeBob sent word that his hero Oradranil was dressed out and ready for the battle.

JoeBob’s wizards scoured the vault to greatly enhance his abilities. This was a battle he was not going to allow any of his troops to be left behind. Meanwhile Manticora’s most loyal and well trained hero stepped into the Great Hall in Polaris and was dressed out and ready. Manticora had previously raided his vaults to destroy the Russian Enemies, he didn’t hold the same scrolls that the great JoeBob had.but he was still a vicious hero. *Emperor Lazar* was ready and had all his troops lined outside the walls of the city. They were ready for the journey and glorious battle ahead of them. The tales of Arch Ruins had been told many times but no one in the region had even seen one. This would finally be their chance to make the news!

The warriors were at the front of the formation. Their armor was glistening as the sun was now overhead. Bells rang throughout Polaris indicating the army was marching! Hundreds of thousands of troops were marching north to the fabled ruin. Manticora's Mage cast a great spell to allow his troops to rapidly catch up to JoeBob's army to join the fight.

Manticora met JoeBob’s horde of warriors outside the ruin…
The two leaders had personally come to ensure the battle was victorious…and to bring to loot home.
Manticora’s archers dealt the first blow as they had the longest range.

Joebob’s warriors and Manticora’s cavalry rushed in to make the victory quick.

The two had dealt with monster heroes before and knew they had tricks to prevent much of their army from joining the fight. Only 1 out of 10 warriors were able to penetrate the field around the Arch Ruin and participate in the battle. Knowing the monsters would not fight fair, *Emperor Lazar* brought his God’s Harp to keep some of the monsters off the battlefield.

Even with their magic the Monsters were still outnumbered. The monster’s were weakened by the numerous spells and artifacts the heroes has brought to the battle.

With all the monsters weak, the Elf and Human armies laid waste to them in just one round.

All the troops who fell in battle were brought back by the healers that the two heroes had brought with them. After the battle there was much celebration as the carriers of the two armies gathered the resources and black gems to bring back to their respective capitals.

*Emperor Lazar* also discovered a rare scroll as he sifted through the great Monster Hero’s belongings. The monsters that weren’t killed in the battle dispersed so they could live another day. Both armies returned home with their black gems satisfied for the day. Plotting on how they would use the newfound wealth to defeat their enemies in the realm……

Nice. It reads a bit stiff and is a little plain, but glad to see it regardless.
I like how you worked in hints to some of the game world politics -- I will try that myself when I get a chance to write a story. ;)

Grats on ruin.

See you on the battlefield.

Before day break there were none
And as it broke there was one
The moon, the sun, it goes on'n'on

Congratulations and thank you for your story! However, it needs some further improvements. The story has to be vivid and interesting. Your story has a good structure and nice pictures, please consider working on the main characters a little more.
