After a week of fierce battles reports are circulating of massive armies of animated creations, supported by the alchemical masters of the Order trampling over lightly defended borders. They must have been constructing the units in secret in preparation for their opportunity since their number and relentlessness has caught many off guard.

With the Order’s armies taking on the other Cabals there is, however, still time to settle old grudges and grow new ones. When Elder Zhang Guo, Cynergy’s experienced Nether force’s leader received word that Boris Kane had moved his Primal army close enough to engage he wasted no time in preparing his troops for a quick attack. Dragon Sages and High Priests were consulted on the most opportune plan and the wide variety of Dragons were prepared for an aerial attack, followed afterwards by a ground offensive led by Enlightened Torturers. Healers were told to be on stand-by as a Sandstorm was prepared to soften the opponent’s ranks.

In Boris Kane’s command tent, a briefing was underway with the army’s top lieutenants when a strong gust of wind threw the tent’s flap open, revealing the storm raging outside. Thousands upon thousands of grains of sand blew in, tearing the clothing and flesh off the bones of an unlucky Changeling Chauffeur. The rest of the tent’s occupants were quick to take cover, only receiving mild wounds and irritation from the sand blasting around.

The defenses were marshalled, Bog Candles lit and Banshees unleashed upon the attackers. The shapechanging magic of the Danann Covenant was utilized to great effect. The ground itself was made hazardous to any trespasser, not to mention the Frost that fell, in effect replacing the now dwindling Sandstorm.

The battle went on for hours. A Hermit fell, next to a few Yellow Sea Smugglers. A mighty Illusionary Dragon was made visible by passing through the Frost, allowing itself to be targeted by multiple Vasilisa’s Dolls and Domovois.

When it became apparent that this was not a battle that could be won Boris Kane did the only sensible decision he could and retreated, leaving his positions he’d fought hard for behind. Elder Zhang Guo stood triumphant and the Healers began the arduous task of saving the injured and granting a swift mercy to those too far gone.

Next week’s reset will happen on the 15th of March at around the normal time of 00:00 PDT. The very best players will then be rewarded with cards and Influence. All the players who reach the different brackets will get a random Common card from the Order of Zahir. Additionally, the Neophytes will get 100, the Adepti 200, the Cabalists 300 and the New Stars 100 Influence.

Assemble your forces and march for or against the Order!

With casualties mounting quicker than expected, there seems to be no end to the Order’s advance. With never-tiring Golems, Automatons and Liquid Servants constantly harassing the opposing Cabals they are having a hard time getting enough rest to continue fighting effectively. Nothing crumbles down an army’s morale more than being constantly on edge and having to be ready to move off in an instant.

The Order did suffer a setback when player CoW.WillOfD instructed his experienced army, commanded by Boris Kane to take on Miguel Rosenau’s force which after losing recently was in no position to fight effectively.

Kane commanded the Primal troops to attack, leading the charge from the front himself. Many Domovois, Striga and Leshii jumped on the enemy and it was not a battle for the ages that historians would ruminate over in the coming centuries. It was a slaughter, befitting the attackers’ Primal nature.

Rosenau was forced to retreat, losing most of his army and most likely some of the survivors’ respect, as well.

The next week’s leaderboard reset will happen on the 22th of March at the normal time of 00:00 PDT. The best players can then expect to be rewarded with Influence and the Community chosen card that you can vote on behind the link on our Forums. The Influence rewards will be 100 to the top 20 Neophytes, 200 to the top 15 Adepti, 300 to the top 10 Cabalists and 100 to the top 10 New Stars.
The battlegrounds call the best players to fight to earn rewards!

The Order of Zahir has managed to gain a lot of new ground during their efforts in the last few weeks. The advantage of commanding armies with relentless Automatons and Golems being able to constantly harass the enemy cannot be underestimated. With the expected final week of engagements approaching the Order seeks to establish a secure foothold in as many territories as possible. With that in mind they do know to avoid overextending themselves. The Order’s leadership must be ready to stall their advance and prepare for the hard part of keeping their newly acquired land from the unhappy other Cabals.

During the previous weeks, the player arciemag’s force under the command of Franz Tausend has fought in multiple engagements. Sometimes fortune has smiled on the army, bringing it glorious victories. However, there have been other battles where the opposition has been too much for Tausend’s Dominion troops.

On one cold, foggy morning the exhausted army that had just been forced to retreat from Elder Zhang Guo was still gathering back their strength when the ingenious detection web the camp’s Magicians had set up utilizing a few Ley Obelisks was tripped. The alarm was heard and understood and the camp’s occupants quickly took up arms and prepared for any eventuality.

Approaching a, seemingly, unaware enemy, Rasputin crept closer. Assured by his Familiars and Hermits that the opposing camp was easy pickings he was ready to order the attack on the beleaguered Tausend and his pitiful army. Psychic Lapses were prepared as was a Frost and Bone Guards were sent on a flanking maneuver.

Tausend observed all this and waited for the most opportune time. When Rasputin was close enough and committed to the attack, Franz unleashed the full might of his experienced, albeit tired, force. A Living Void appeared in front of a triplet of Familiars while an Underworld Charger ran towards the closest enemy. Automatons, previously hidden in foliage, appeared behind the furthermost attackers.

With all his troops performing to the same exacting standard Franz Tausend had come to depend on he grinned before himself joining the fight.

The month’s final leaderboard reset will happen on the 29th of March at around 00:00 PDT. The best players then will be rewarded as usual. The best 20 Neophytes, the top 15 Adepti and the 10 most successful Cabalists will receive 100, 200 and 300 Influence, respectively. They will all also receive a random Rare card from the Order of Zahir. The top 10 New Stars will receive 100 Influence and a random card from the Order.

Fight for your favorite Cabal!

With the upkeep costs of their armies of automatons becoming more and more prohibitive the Order of Zahir must acknowledge the reality of the situation and concentrate on holding their acquired territories. The other Cabals are eager to take this breather to strategize and think on the future. Some will take this as the perfect opportunity to expand their influence while others will be content to take a step back and see where the dominoes fall before committing their forces to any single plan.

Boris Kane had been on the trail of Samuel Ong and his strike force for a while now. Commanded by the experienced LleoMaxX to not give up the chase until the Nether force was destroyed or disbanded Kane had instructed his troops to not lose the scent for any reason. Constantly chasing after their enemies, a less experienced army might not have been up to fighting effectively when they finally caught them but luckily this was not an army of new recruits. Veterans of many battles and different encounters, Boris Kane had picked every one of his troops for the chase personally.

Samuel Ong, however, was not dealing with the situation as well as the pursuers. Some bad luck with a few injuries had caused a few delays and the knowledge that they were being chased was constantly on their minds. While the army overall was also experienced, being chased and hunted was not a situation most took to with much enthusiasm. The environment was also not one the Nether alliance forces were too used to. The pine forests were much more the Primals’ playground.

The expected battle that both sides felt was coming was not one for the history books. One night when Ong heard the pursuing army coming ever closer, his scouts ran right into a swamp that proved impassable. With a few units stuck and struggling for sturdier ground and the Primal force’s cheers and jeers being heard by every single one of those under his command he made the difficult decision to retreat. His troops divided and fled, embarrassed by the situation.

Samuel Ong survived to fight another day and so did some of his luckier troops. The rest were never heard of again.

The fighting moves to another bout of Mayhem to close out the month! In Zahir Mayhem, the best 100 players will all receive a random Elite card from the Order of Zahir. The 100 are divided into 60 Neophyte, 30 Adeptus and 10 Cabalist players.

Fight in the War of Cabals!
