Deep in the boreal forest of Mitgardia the lonesome traveler may find the balckened ruins of a once magnific temple, originally designated to the old gods of the North.
As Mitgardian settlers streamed into the North some 200 years ago, they where so afraid of the old cult that they destroyed as many of these temples and their idols as possible. Hardly any remains can still be found today, except for the ruins of this temple, that is so far out in the nowhere, that the Mitgardian troops just had it fall into the state of disrepair after the locals had deserted the forest.
However, with the elementals waging havoc across the country, some Mitgardians have discovered, that near the acient sites, elementals do not dare to attac. So a group of Mitgardian fighters and artisians, under the lead of Steen Larsson and Eric Grimmson, are setting up their camp in this particular place, hoping that here they can gain the strength required to fight off the evil.
The first structure to be erected was the shop of the smith, as ore can be collected on the meadows nearby and good weapons as well as bolts and screws for siege engines are in want.
Others in the camp are occupied with putting up more palisades:
starting a rope bridge across the river:
or studying maps in the commanders' hut in order to plan the next move:
On the other side of the river, inside the ruins, two clerics have cleared up some of the brush thus discovering an old shrine:
they are not entirely sure how they can contact the old gods, but they sure are giving it quite some effort ...
So far the situation remains calm. But some of the younger ones are very frightened, will they be really save around here?
So, thanks for all the contstructive feedback I recieved during the WIP phase. I hope you like this one and have fun watching it. More pics to be found on my brickshelf account..
