Dis was sitting on the roof of the highest castle tower, a book open on her lap and a pen in her hand. she would look up for a moment and than look down and write in her book, and than look up again. This went on for some time until night fell and she smiled. The astronomers would be out now, looking up into the night sky, writing down the movement of the stars. This was her favorite time of the whole day. She looked again one last time and jumped down from her perch, landing lightly onto the terrace below. An old woman was sitting in a chair near the fire sewing, she looked up at Dis' entrance "you'll get sick if you spend your whole time out side without a cloak." Dis chuckled and picked up a freshly baked cookie, taking a bite she just looked at the old woman. "You know I won't get sick, I can't get sick. I'm too busy running this kingdom to get sick." it would be nice to be able to stay in bed all day....but I can't...tempting... laughing Dis walked out of the room and into the hall. I need to make sure the newest records are accurate.

The thunderous sound of marching can be heard from Tara. The sky was starting to turn black with storm clouds, but the black armour of the knights of Styra still seemed to shine. With them was a large part of Darkthorn's great army. They had all been trained for battle all their lives, making it into an artform. But even the soldiers feared the knights. They had trained with their king, they were different than them. They were evil. The army halts its march, staying visible to the residents of Tara. At its head was another knight, who would stand eight feet tall when he dismounted. But he was riding a large black creature that resembled a black dinosaur. It was called a raptor, Darkthorn's latest creature that was being trained to allow knights to ride them. A robed figure stood each side, their faces not visible under the hood. They raised their arm simultaneously and the raptor lets out a harsh cry.

((invading me are you? hmmmmmm not the wisest of choices hehe....))

The men at the conservatory had seen the invading army approach and the warning had gone up all throughout the empire. By the time the enemies "Raptor's" had let out their cry, The army of Metis had already been assembled and suited up. Large metal machines could be seen rolling down the streets and the sound of alarms where heard throughout the night. Dis had instructed the War machines her technical scientists had had built. they where huge and sturdy, and they where intimidating. There was also the smaller flying bikes that her air force was trained in using. as well as the giant flying machines that carried load after load of devastating weaponry. Dis stood fully armed with her men staring down at the sight below her. We may be neutral but we are a force to be reckoned with, and all the kingdoms will soon know it!

((Thems sounds likes fighting words And there was only the one raptor... they are still training the rest ))

More of the robed figures starts appearing around the army as the clouds gather over Tara. They all begin chanting as one, the soldiers beating their spears on the ground in time with the chanting. The knights remain still, disciplined not to react. The knight on the horse raises his own spear, the soldiers following suit and letting out a roar as the advanced slowly. The robed figures continue their chants.

((ooooh they sound like fighting words do they? hehe just you wait and see.))

Dis laughs at the chanting, raising her arm up into the air, miles upon miles of genetically engineered soldiers march forward, covering the ground for as far as you can see. when you mess with a country that focuses on scientific advancement than you will be smashed by the hands of logic All the soldiers where linked into her mind, every one. we have the advantage of being on our own territory, and with everything else factored in we have a 75.99% chance of winning. mutters" could be better but we are still going to win." her steward comes forward. "everyone is in position your majesty." Dis tuns to him, make sure a letter goes out to the Dark citadel, inform them we are under attack, I don't want it to be a surprise to them when the evacuees start coming in. She had been forced to send the woman and children away from the city.

((75.99%? Wow.... ))

The knight on the raptor smiles inside his helmet. This was to be expected. He gives the robed figure on his right a look, and sees two red points glowing back at him. He hated the sorcerers. They were not warriors, they focused entirely on their magics. True, all soldiers learnt it, but they trained their bodies and minds in unison. These were just minds held together by the robes. As they start moving forwards, more robed figures start appearing further away from the main force until they were stretched out in a line that matched the enermy's. And behind them appeared more of Darkthorn's forces. Each led by a raptor knight with his own knights behind. Their force matched the enemy's, and this was just the beginning. As the joint army starts moving forwards faster, the chanting becomes louder and a barrier appears. That would hold off any missiles that would damage their forces in the charge.

((OOC: I know it's random lol and I'm assuming this barrier allows her forces to attack, because otherwise it's cheating ))

Dis smiled, she may rely on science and technology most of the time, but it would take an ignorant person to not see the value in Magic. Her whole kingdom had a backup plan, one she would only use if she had no other choice, until than she'd use the power her kingdom has developed. She gripped and signaled her ground troops to advance. Let this begin than.

((Two things, It does allow you to attack on the ground, it only protects from missiles ((Arrows, catapult fire etc)) and secondly, If you couldnt attack me, then I wouldnt be able to attack you, and where would be the point in that? ))

((Also, now that the Darkthorn army has multiplied so much, what are your chances now? ))

Seeing the enemies advance, the raptor knight gave the signal. He was now in charge of this attack, and the other raptor knight signalled in response. He was looking forward to having whole units of knights on raptors. These large beasts were over 10 feet tall, with powerful legs and jaws. they stood on two legs and had a hide as tough as armour. With large horns on their heads, and large claws, they were incredibly dangerous when wild. But in the hands of a knight, they were more than deadly. He could feel the power of the beast under him, just waiting to be unleashed. But to run ahead would be suicide. He kept it back, leading his soldiers into their chharge.

((oh you want to play it like that do you? Metis is famous for it's air force! lets just see how cocky you are when I strike and take away one of your advantages.....and yes I just made up the air force thing right now :P))

Dis watches the enemies army multiply but doesn't panic, a rumbling could be heard, an earth quake? Dis grins, just wait suddenly huge gaping sucking holes appear on the ground. Pulling the enemies soldiers down into the crushing earth, taking out a huge number of the chanting hooded men. my land is fortified with traps everywhere! Her troops keep advancing, because they where linked into her mind, they felt no fear, only the thirst for blood. she wanted a sea of her enemies blood and so did they. The night called for it,

The Darkthorn army prepares its anti-air guns (( )) Just in case the enemy had some kind of aerial assault planned. The robed figures that had fell into the crushing earth came back up again, their robes crumpled. The leader sighs. Well that was one advantage of not having a body he guessed. But now with the appearance of traps, they would have to be more careful. He shouts a quick order to the robed figure to his right, and the chanting increases. A barrier starts forming under the feet of the army. Now they were protected from above and below. From here on it would be only fair fighting.

((how can you call it fair fighting when your men can come back from attacks, and your sitting comfy in a little shield! erg I should just say metis puts up a shield and theirs no way the invaders can come in at all they automatically lose! erg ))

Dis starts to feel anger well up in her, this is her land, and no chanting piece of cloth is going to get the upper hand in her kingdom. She pushes her troops forward and straight into the enemy. her areal machines had a built in shield so no weapons could shoot them down (( )) missiles upon missiles were being pelted down. While her men below kept on advancing.

((What? You killed the soldiers Its only the robed guys who came back, and they have no physical body so they pose no real threat ))

As they continue advancing, they start gathering speed. They were close now. the general lets out a cry, carried by the army and becoming deafening. They could see the enemy clearly, but they were not close enough yet. The robed figures started preparing to move away as the battle began. He could see the eyes of his enemies. Now the battle would begin.

When her men could see the whites of the enemies eyes, they brought up their weapons and rushed into the enemies lines. Wave after wave of her men, in perfect formation. Her first battalion coming in from the right, her second from the left, and her third from the front. Her front line carried huge shields, as large as a mans body, they pushed forward breaking the enemies line, breaking a way in for her foot soldiers.

((2 things, their eyes are black, without whites and they are bigger than normal men ))

The raptor knights leap over the soldiers with shields, knocking them and all around them flying. They tear through, the robed figures backing away to provide cover for incoming soldiers. As the raptor knights clear holes in the enemy lines, the knights pur through, breaking them further. This led to large gaps in the enemy lines. providing perfect room for the soldiers to tear their way through. They had broken the enemy line, and now they had to keep pushing. The raptor knights continued their rampage, scattering the enemies.
