Battle lines formed. A large body of Grave guard with one of Alcourasta's trusted aide, Melkhani was flanked by ghouls and Skeletons with the necromancer, Bayern the Crooked. Ahead of them masses of brooding creatures, half man, half goat, assembled, flanked by massive minotaurs and chariots.
Melkhani led her troops forward, and began summoning forth the dark powers of undeath, to both speed her allies and cast a pall upon the enemy. To her left, wraiths swept through the blackened grass as floating spectres of fear and death, their ethereal forms string terror into those before them who knew they could do them no harm.
The Ghouls and Wraiths made short work of many of the enemy, including the Minotaurs; but Bayern was in great danger, having finally been engaged by forces that had cut through his wall of Zombies. Moreover one of the Gor units, at the cost of it's own lives, had thinned out the numbers of Grave Guard.
Melkhani responded by summoning up her undead in still greater numbers, and turned for what would be the titanic struggle of the night.
