Head Herald Cermit Commanding the Northeastern Alliance

Warmup Battles – Various. Get warmed up before the mass of Ragnarok has had their lunch.

Osgiliath

Our Protagonist army has stumbled into another Kingdom while scouting. Our Antagonist army has noticed and sought fit to meet them in the ruined city of Osgiliath. The Armies arrive close to the same time, at midday, seeking to capture this once noble city, neither knowing abilities of the other.

Hold onto as many holy points as possible on the island city of Osgiliath in this thirty minute battle. Resurrections happen in groups. If you can manage to capture a holy point near one of the siege weapons, you now get control of that siege weapon. Boats will be in play. Lasts for 20 minutes.

The length of time the points are controlled will determine the other teams resurrection counts in the next scenario.

Prison Break

Our Protagonist army has surrendered, being outmatched by a greater army, and has been taken prisoner. They plotted a daring escape have managed to liberate their gear from prison guards and are fighting their way out of the castle back the way they came to gather reinforcements and avenge their fallen comrades.

Army starts inside the castle, has to break out through the castle, the village outside, the open fields outside that, and into the forest. It is a death tax battle with the Antagonist defenders running out of deaths at each stage to ensure the escaping attackers can continue. The team with least number of deaths wins. Run twice, once with each team in the prison to start. Both sides of the castle and its gate will be open to escape through.

Times until all the escapees have made it out will determine how far each team is from the resources the following day’s battle.

Clash Of Kings Ball – Take one of several yoga balls and score by putting it in the through the uprights, touching the ball with anything but your hands. Most points wins. Runs for 15 minutes then sides change.

Battle for Evermore – We must keep fighting! At this point two res points will be set up and the heralds will leave the field for the day. Fight for as long as you can.

Head Herald Gorg the Blacksmith

Commanding the Keepers of the Obsidian Stag

Warmup Battles – Various. Get warmed up before the mass of Ragnarok has had their lunch.

Capture the Flag

Each army is trying to prove they have the upper hand by acquiring support and proving their worth against the other enemy.

A-typical flag capture. Both teams are lined up across from each other with a load of flags to capture. At right angles to the direct line between the two are two other “forts” abandoned for all intents and purposes. Each one of them also has a load of flags and a herald to distribute them not faster than one every minute. These represent allies. Each captured ally flag is worth half of a captured opposing army’s flag.

Resource Capture

Each team has various resources (wood, gold, iron, food, et al) and must capture said resource from a mine near the middle of the woods and bring it back to its appropriate storage place. Only one resource item (rocks with colors and appropriately marked) can be carried at a time.

TBA - A local southern favorite.

Battle for Evermore – We must keep fighting! At this point two res points will be set up and the heralds will leave the field for the day. Fight for as long as you can.

Night events

Day events

Head Herald Crowe

Commanding Mirkwood

Warmup Battles – Various. Get warmed up before the mass of Ragnarok has had their lunch.

Three Rivers Battle

A large portion of our Protagonists have been caught flat footed once again and are trapped between two enemy armies. They must fight while making a retreating action as they flee to the one direction they can.

The Protagonists must hold out as long as possible to keep the Antagonist armies from both reaching their side of the river. Multiple bridges and fords will be on all three rivers.

Defend the Fort

Our Protagonists have gotten a raven to the the rest of their forces and rescue ships are on the way. They are thirty minutes upstream. Hold out as long as you can to give some of your army a chance to escape.

The Protagonists have a town they have retreated to across a creek. 3 bridges cross that creek, and there are two entrances into the town. Inside the town are three barracks, and each barracks resurrects every minute. The barracks can be destroyed. On the Antagonist side are three heralds walking slowly to the bridges. As they start its a 20 man count before res, halfway to the bridge it’s a 10 man, 3/4th of the way it’s a 5 man. When they hit the bridges they stop and its touch and go.

Pillar Battle - Details TBA

Battle for Evermore – We must keep fighting! At this point two res points will be set up and the heralds will leave the field for the day. Fight for as long as you can.

Warmup Battles – Various.

Rescue the General

A general has been lost behind enemy lines in the route. He was left for dead, but he just got a message to the protagonist army he is wounded and needs rescued.

The general will be a dummy weighed down by sand and built onto a stretcher. The antagonist army will have him behind their lines. They will have many res points throughout the field at the start, but these points can be disabled by the Protagonists as they make their way to the general. These points cannot be reactivated. The Protagonists have to get the general back to the home res point in the least amount of time.

Holy Relic Battle - There is a mysterious relic on an island in the middle of the sea. It brings great power but also bestows a curse upon its wielder as a penance for the gods.

Inside the ruins is a sword of power. It enables the wielder to do black damage while carrying it but he also takes black damage while holding it. He can hold no other weapons while handling this power. Weapons can block the damage but not shields. A herald with a timer will follow the carrier around and carry a big flag to make sure everyone can see the power coming off the weapon. If the wielder can hold it in the inner area of the ruins he gets 5 points for every 10 seconds. The Middle area accrues 3 points per 10 seconds. The outside area of the ruins 1 point per 10 seconds. It pays to stay where the fighting is hardest, but is it worth it.

Modified Black Knight Battle - Rules TBA

Battle for Evermore – We must keep fighting! At this point two res points will be set up and the heralds will leave the field for the day. Fight for as long as you can.

Island Battle

Protagonists flee to small group of islands where they try to keep the antagonists at bay as they continue to move across the islands.

KotH battle with multiple hills, points awarded on timed interval. Boats will be in play. Lasts for 30 minutes. Resurrection points dictate the length of resurrection.

Team who wins gains control of the island and pushed back opposing force.

Shrinking Island Battle

Either army will then move to finish off the other leaving the smaller islands for a single larger island. This island will be shrinking in size during the battle due to volcano and the magic of the cursed sword.

Single death. Last army on the battlefield wins. Plan on running this one multiple times if it ends quickly.

Final Battle

Back on the main land now both armies are looking for the final strike to finish off the other. Neutral Assault game, bomb and torch are in the center, when both items reach an opponent’s base it is destroyed and their resurrection is closed.

Touch and go resurrection until resurrection is shut down.

King Battle - Final battle of Ragnarok. Any and all kings willing to challenge King Exo for the Crown are encouraged to form their own armies throughout the week and bring his reign to an end.
