Or shadow stalkers with 60% physical damage resistance, right?
Oh boy, do I have some bad news (for me). Two of @Thraeg’s armies, led by a hero each, stormed in and occupied one of my cities. They killed two of my stacks and lost a stack of their own. I’m not 100% sure what happened with one of the heroes. I saw her fall on the battlefield, but after the battle she was in the city Thraeg occupied.
Thraeg sent an assassin to take back one of the settlements I took from him last turn. I sent a frost wyvern and a cherub to retake it, but even though the combat odds were shown as “highly likely”, the assassin easily killed both of my units.
In the underground area where battles are happening, I saw 2 Thraeg’s stacks mostly consisting of lifestealing goblin butchers, but also 3 shadow stalkers (also lifestealing) and a drunk hobbit.
Losing a city and 3 battles in the row imposed a -200 morale penalty on my armies and settlements.
The undead spawning site I mentioned recently spawned a stack of 2 titans and 4 casters.
Luckily, there are also some good news (for me). I was able to assemble a ragtag stack to retake my city. There was another stack, led by a hero, that also participated in the battle. Together, they were able to defeat the invaders. It was a bloodbath and I lost many units trying to get through the stone walls of the city. Luckily for me, most of them were divine justicars. My hero also converted one of the assassins, but I think he’ll desert in the nearest future since he’s dedicated to evil.
I occupied three more Thraeg’s settlements, and though he can easily retake some of them, it should disrupt the flow of producing resources and units. It also removed settlements’ spells. My autospellcasting appears to be dumber than Thraeg’s, but he seems to be short on mana. And, having liberated Rastorm, I can send all the stacks I was gathering around it to the frontline.
It’s your turn, emperor @Thraeg.
