The army that captures this territory holds a substantial advantage on the battle map, a fierce
raw land with extreme natural defences of cliff faces , melted rock, and oddly shaped trees.
A wind constantly howls through the Horrors lending an unease to the atmosphere.
There are stirs in the depths of the dark land, terrible things awoken by the foot steps of passing armies.
loot- There are many enemies on the campeign trail, if you like the looks of somebody elces loot feel
free to challenge them to open combat- watch out for headhunters.
a victory will increase your rank and you will rob them of their loot. This may make you a bigger target for other crusaders.A loss will
decrease your ranking and you will loose any valuables you have picked up. this may make you a bigger target for other crusaders.
WIP for the Light Side on this one.
The background is still in a state of reconstruction. I'm sort of experimenting with the color right now, not sure how I feel about it. I'll probably put that off until the background is more concrete. Attachment 333375
I decided that the composition on the first one was dull enough that it warranted restarting. I'm still a complete and utter novice when it comes to landscapes so we'll see how it turns out or how much i can hide with darkness. Attachment 335086
