Vril Society had their shot at domination and it is yet unclear on how successful they were. Some territories were gained while some bad decisions led to downfalls in other areas. Sometimes it even seemed that the very natural forces were against their plans of conquest.

The perceptive eyes of the leadership of the Dragon Enclave were not idle during all this. They saw what the Society was planning and, just maybe, were inspired by it a little bit. But it does not do to repeat the mistakes of the past, not even if they are someone else’s.

Adapting their strategies to improve on the Vril Society’s effort, the Dragon Enclave begins their push in Dragon Serenity. All will bow before the might of the dragons!

The leaderboards will reset next week, on the 8th of January at the normal time, 00:00 PDT. Then the top 20 Neophytes will get 100 Influence, the top 15 Adepti 200 Influence and the top 10 Cabalists 300 Influence. The new players of that week, the New Stars will get 100 Influence and a random card from the sponsors of this month, the Dragon Enclave.

Join the War of Cabals and command the dragons!

[War of Cabals] Dragon Serenity Week 1 Results

The first week has seen a lot of engagements being fought and there have been sightings of some true heroics by the players, the best of whom can be seen in the photo above. The dragon is fierce and unyielding, but so is the will of the other cabals that oppose the Enclave!

Sometimes the Enclave can be its own worst enemy. Such was the case on one morning when internal strife and disagreements led to a bloody fight between two Enclave forces. Commander kabooom’s troops led by Elder Zhang Guo took on an opposing force under Master yu Ming’s banner.

The sparking incident seemed enough innocent at first and might have stayed that way if not for the involvement of a Double Agent from the Order of Zahir who happened upon the event in progress and managed to turn the two Enclave forces against each other. Or it might have been a Vril Society Doppelganger masquerading as a Double Agent. Who knows, the fact is that the disagreement grew rapidly and soon the entirety of both armies were at each other’s throats.

Dragon on dragon, Diplomats and Bakus against Rakshasas and Healers. The two army commanders might have tried to de-escalate the situation but the scent of blood was in the air and long buried resentments could not be held back indefinitely.

As kabooom’s forces fought their former allies an Unstable Dynamo suddenly unstabilized even further and exploded, luckily taking with it an Illusionary Dragon and an Eldritch Horror nearby. Nearer to both commanders the forces entrusted with bodyguard duties struggled to keep their leaders safe. As casualties began to mount Master yu Ming was forced to give ground, just a bit at first but it didn’t end there. Sensing an opening, the Elder capitalized on the situation and sought to end the perhaps needless fight quickly with overwhelming force. A domineering last advance was taken by the Elder’s forces and the opposing side folded like a deck of cards.

The army of kabooom marched on, having sated their bloodlust for the moment and hopefully having learned something from the battle.

Next week, on the 15th of January at 00:00 PDT the reset will happen as normal. The 20 best Neophytes, the top 15 Adepti and the 10 most successful Cabalists will be rewarded with 100, 200 and 300 Influence, respectively. The top 10 New Stars, those who have just drawn their first blood on the battlegrounds will get 100 Influence. Also, the Dragon Enclave supports the best players with a random common card from their arsenal.

What is your opinion on the Enclave? Like it or not, there is no staying neutral in this fight so join in and earn glory and rewards!

[War of Cabals] Dragon Serenity Week 2 Results

Clever tactics have been utilized to great effect by the Dragon Enclave in their operations. The other cabals are struggling to keep up, but there is the saying that necessity breeds innovation.

While the Enclave has been busy executing their plans, their opposition has not been idle. Many different forces have responded to the aggression, sometimes gaining advantage and sometimes not. With many commanders vying to prove themselves, there are some who don’t mind trampling over their allies to gain prestige.

Such a case occurred when the successful player Momentum’s Miguel Rosenau-led army took advantage of a fellow Dominion force. Perhaps having lost only recently and still gaining their strength back, Franz Tausend had led his army to rest near a stream. While they were in the process of raising tents and organizing the camp the numerically inferior Rosenau’s army rushed them with their metaphorical pants down. A brief altercation ensued, in which the attacker caused mayhem among Tausend’s troops, felling an Antediluvian Giant and destroying a Golem. A Living Void or two later the encamped force was in disarray and chaos took hold. Their fighting morale lost they began to flee as fast as they could. Rosenau’s elite troops took this change to cause some additional casualties before they themselves retreated, their mission done.

The losing side ran and left most of their supplies behind, only further helping the victors’ efforts. Not really something Franz Tausend appreciated, but he had more important things in his mind, mainly regrouping and living to fight another day.

Next week on the 22th of January at 00:00 PDT the leaderboards will reset as normal. Here’s a breakdown of the rewards the best players can expect:

- The top 20 Neophytes will get 100 Influence and the Community voted card from the Dragon Enclave
- The top 15 Adepti will get 200 Influence and the Community voted card from the Dragon Enclave
- The top 10 Cabalists will get 300 Influence and the Community voted card from the Dragon Enclave
- The top 10 New Stars will get 100 Influence and the Community voted card from the Dragon Enclave

[War of Cabals] Dragon Serenity Week 3 Results

The Enclave’s attacks gather speed as the third week of Dragon Serenity is behind us. The Primal alliance has been somewhat successful in slowing down the advance, mostly due to the judicious use of their knowledge of nature. More than a few of the Enclave’s forces have fallen prey to expert ambushes while traversing the Brotherhood and the Covenant’s territories.

A planned ambush by spartacus708’s army headed by the mysterious Rasputin should have worked just like the previous ones did. The opposing side’s Nether alliance forces with some usually neutral troops seemed to be marching straight towards the planned ambush site, seemingly unaware of the coming threat.

Domovois and Bogatyrs stood silent, waiting. An unnatural Frost was ready to be unleashed against the desert-dwelling part of the marching army. However, something didn’t go according to plan. Suddenly, a sudden Sandstorm appeared among the ambushers, blinding and confusing them. Then, seemingly out of nowhere a Lion of Ammit followed by a Master of Blades were loosed among the Primals. Then a Blazing Dragon, followed by an Apep Hatchling.

For a minute or two, chaos reigned among the Primals. It appeared, that the other army commander, Alistair Crowley had managed a surprise, turning the ambush around on the ambushers! Then Rasputin drew on his experience as a tactician and seeing the situation called his reserve forces to action. As a competent battlefield commander, he had not committed all of his forces to the ambush, so he had more cards to play, so to speak.

A Striga, a Faery Warrior and some Magic Pigs of Cruachu, all experienced combatants charged to the sides of the Dragon Enclave and Sons of Osiris troops. Seeing their allies attacking the ambushing force gained a second wind and began to co-ordinate with the newcomers.

As the fighting ended and the surviving Primal alliance army gathered their wounded an important question was in the forefront of Rasputin’s mind. What had happened to give away their ambush?

The 29th of January sees the final leaderboard reset of Dragon Serenity. Then, at 00:00 PDT the top 20 Neophytes will get 100 Influence and a random rare card from Dragon Enclave. The 15 best Adeptus players will get 200 Influence and a random rare card from Dragon Enclave. The top 10 Cabalists will be rewarded with 300 Influence and a random rare card from Dragon Enclave. The best 10 New Stars, players who have registered during the week previous to the reset, will get 100 Influence and a random card from Dragon Enclave.

Join the War of Cabals and battle to earn great rewards!

[War of Cabals] Dragon Serenity Final Week Results

Postby joukosalminen » Mon Jan 29, 2018 7:29 am

As Dragon Serenity ends the leadership of the Enclave takes the time to conduct thorough debriefings of the actions of their commanders. Those who acquitted themselves well may be in line for promotions while the ones who faltered try to cash in all the favors and influence they’ve gained to maintain their positions.

While the Enclave has advanced and planned most of their efforts have benefited their allies of the Nether variety, the Sons of Osiris. While ultimately every Cabal would like to stand on their own on top of the proverbial hill it is still necessary to find some common ground with another to shoulder the load. The player zengteng6.cn entrusted his battle-hardened troops to the command of the English occultist, Alistair Crowley. His army comprised both people and strange things from his owl Cabal as well as some from the Dragon Enclave, as their alliance allowed and supported.

On one January evening as the army was conducting their usual routines and maintenance before taking a rest a pair of Osirian Devotees in the middle of their prayers experienced a strange vision. Surprised the two conferred and found that the details of both of their visions matched almost perfectly and foretold of an unusual opportunity for their leader. Apologizing for disturbing the other devotees to the god of the dead the pair, Ubaid and Nailah, sought out an Astronomer acquaintance of theirs. As they explained their vision the Astronomer, convinced of the importance, pointed his telescope to the night sky, looking for signs to corroborate the vision.

During the next hour or so, their small group had grown to encompass a peddler of strange magical artifacts and a keeper of much occult lore, who on his spare time operated a Bazaar around the camp. Now even more convinced by the vision, the foursome sought an audience with the occultist Crowley.

After some convincing and showing the proof they’d gathered, not to mention promising a sizable discount from the Bazaar for the door guards, they were led to Crowley’s tent.

As dawn broke in Miguel Rosenau’s camp it seemed to be an early morning like any other. A few groggy Bramin Engineers, still stretching their limbs after a night’s rest were heading to grab breakfast from the mess tent. Three Vril Mutants, given a wide berth by anyone walking by, were still snoring loudly, disturbing the two Assassins practicing their knife throwing. A Bone Guard with a missing arm was being tended to by an Adept Transmuter and a Magician.

The normal morning routine was disturbed by a strange phenomenon. The command tent, normally well tied to the ground by multiple supports suddenly seemed to be sucked into it. In a second, it disappeared along with all its contents and a purple portal remained, exactly the size of the tent and horizontal a few centimeters on top of the ground. Then, another tent disappeared. The sound of the loud snoring ceased abruptly.

As the camp inhabitants began to panic, another portal opened in the middle of the camp, this time in the more normal vertical position. Out of it a Sandstorm emerged, billowing out and quickly moving in an almost intelligent fashion, seeking to encompass the whole camp. Blinded by the rough winds and the sand the camping forces did not even see the force that exited the portal. With Rosenau gone and unable to rally his troops panic quickly set in and the army began to rout, abandoning anything that wasn’t on their person.

The following evening in Crowley’s camp the pair of freshly minted lieutenants, Ubaid and Nailah thanked Osiris in their evening prayers, now more devoted to their god than ever.

With the Dragon Enclave ceding their offensives and apparently pulling back a slight and temporary power vacuum is created. Should another Cabal be interested in increasing their influence and say over the power dynamics of the hidden world, an opportunity may have presented itself. Who knows whether they will take advantage of it, though, since nothing is ever clear or written in stone when dealing with Danann Uncertainty!
