    Default Dwarven Castle

    Located in the countryside rises an imposing structure. From a massive keep, there is a high inner wall, a slightly lower middle wall, and a twenty foot thick, 50 foot high outer wall, with towers at every vertex in the concentric octagons. It can provide shelter from war, and it can be the site of epic battles.
    --------------------------
    A large force of dwarves marches in, 50,000 in all, with another 50,000 coming soon.

    Mages on the outer wall stand at attention, looking at the stretching plain. one of them lazily fireballs a lone tree.

    The dwarven army takes up positions on the walls, as Xerillum grips his sword, thumbing a shard of glowing metal.

    --------------------------------------
    the dwarves march out, with Tor leading thenm. Xerillum flies overhead.

    K'shakh limps towards the castle, his body not yet fully healed, or anywhere close to it. His bandages hang in rags, and the serpents that gather together in the form of his body and nowhere near enough to be complete.

    Default Re: Dwarven Castle

    A group of 200 Thri-Kreen move over to the castle.
    An Emmisary leaves the group to talk to the dwarves.

    After (hopefully) being admitted into the area, they ask the dwarves/tell the dwarves the following things:
    a) Why are you attacking the goblins
    b) Would you like to exchange materials/trade with the Thri-Kreen.
    c) Why is this castle even here?

    (OOC: Whats your food source/water souce.
    I need a reasonable explanation here with good reasons because what I'd going to do, trade-wise depends on it.
    Please don't just say that they have food for no apparent reason. It's not good RP.)

    "I come to negotiate peace before these hostilities continue and we are forced to take measures beyond those of mild defense. The conditions are simple; you may not attack the goblins any more. Self-defense will be permitted, although if it is found you instigated the Goblins to attack, we will still void the treaty. You may not go within one-hundred feet of the slums. Goblins are free to go where they please. If that seems unfair to you, consider first that you attempted genocide upon two seperate races in one war. If this still seems unfair, your a devils behind the masks of men and we wish no entreaty with your vile kind. Additionally, the next four-hundred-and-sixty adult, non-aged, dwarves to die must donate their corpses to replenishing the unjust slaughter of some of our guardsmen. The Goblins must be recompensated for any and all damages suffered, promply and as soon as they demand and you are able."

    "Like I said, the Goblins have your genocide attempt on their side. However, I didn't honestly expect this to work. I'd prefer if you had the sense of sport not to shoot a crippled man in the back as he limps away, but I have no hard-and-fast expectations of such decency, so worry not of disappointing me."

    The knight rides in, a large scroll at his hip. He stops his horse, dismounts, and walks towards the castle. He pulls out another, smaller scroll and reads it out, he drops it to the ground as the paper inflames and disintegrates. Despite the cold weather he removes his cowl, and rings out in a clear, concise, and articulate voice-

    As you fine humanoids must surely know, attacking an unarmed enemy who is merely delivering a message is both underhanded, dishonorable, irrational, and wholly unjust. I will not hesitate to summon the herald of my god within your castle if you continue this chaotic, illogical, hostile, and racist and xenophobic crusade.

    These specific undead have not slaughtered your people nor have they destroyed your crops, near as I heard from he rumors of the townspeople, and they are in the right in this conflict. Cease this actions or, despite my dislike for the anarchic institutions in this settlement, I will call you into court, and Arbath willing I will force you to accept the realities of this situation.

    K'shakh, without turning or slowing his limp, casts a hellball on his feet, eliminating the first volley of arrows in a torrent of magical energy. The next set of arrows, he eliminates with a flaming pillar centered around himself, slightly wider than his body, reaching from the ground farther into the sky than the elves or dwarves can make out. Its heat alters the state of matter of the arrows instantaneously to a gas form. Limping along, he uses probability machinations, clearly not telekinesis, to alter the probabilities of reality so that the arrows of the next volley all manage to fall in such an organization as to build a neat little city of arrow-cabins about the right size for a large child's toy to live in.
    "If I shared your sense of honour and value for sentient beings, I guarantee you every single living being in your castle would be dead." K'shakh says without a hint of bragging or hesitation; the simple truth, evidenced by the terrible magic he used with no effort to neutralize the arrow. Not a threat, not a promise, just a statement; I could kill you all without second thought, be grateful I'm not such a filthy, murderous wretch as whatever king you answer to.
    To any listening, the message is clear and nearly impossible to mis-interpret. At different times, people simply notice that K'shakh is not there anymore.

    The knight remains standing even after the undead disappears. He continues to stare at the men guarding the outer walls, waiting for them to respond.

    The fire blast is negated by the anti-magic field around the tent.

    A Thri-Kreen moves out of the field and casts a spell.
    Flaming text appears in front of the Dwarven castle:
    "You have just performed an unprovoked attack on a peaceful Thri-Kreen Embassy.
    You must understand, that we have no choice but to kill all of you.
    This means war!"

    Goblin sappers from the tunnels below the city have finished making a tunnel into the food supply. Two battalions of goblin elite commandos from the mountains pour in to destroy the food source, some engaging the guards while others commence to tear at the ground with sharp tools and spill salt onto it.

    -----------

    Meanwhile, two portals open up in seperate barracks and armed goblins begin pouring through, attacking the dwarves.
