Very.

Anyway, I was reading this paleontology book in school which had a picture just like that one. And it said it was from Vietnam.

It wasn't that exact same picture though...

I don't know why everyone is guessing, The place in China (West of Hong Kong) I am thinking of isn't far from Vietnam...

Agh, I can't make a small map for a contest on Combat Arms worth Crap.../OFF TOPIC?

Combat arms? You means Halberds and Zwie's or robotic arms they beat each other?

Oh, never heard of it.

How did we get here?

So city:

Centered in islands, main city built on land while farms, salt flats and other temporary areas are build on rafts.

Is this view correct?

Possibly Vietnam, yes. I know Vietnam has things like that - I saw it on a Top Gear special.

I hate having to repeat myself.

Corsair Mercenaries
--------------------
Valiero'Vi Imperial Army

Valiero'Vi Southern Militia
--------------------

Location:

Sarwaer Hill on Eastern Iga'Vi-Valiero'Vi border

Forces:

Iga'Vi
Northern Army - 2000 Imperial Pikemen, 2300 Iga'Vi Levies, 2100 Misc.
Levies, 1000 Archers, 1200 Arquebus, 600 Mounted Lancers, 800
Skirmishers/Scouts, 45 Cannons, 6 Rocket Teams


Corsair Mercenaries - 450 Pikemen, 800 Marines, 200 Arquebus


Valiero
Imperial Army - 500 Pikemen, 3400 Calvary Archers, 2500 Valiero'Vi
Levies, 250 Archers, 375 Arquebus, 800 Mounted Heavy Lancers, 1550
Mounted Lancers600 Skirmishers/Scouts, 14 Cannons

Valiero'Vi Southern Militia - 500 Militia, 2000 Mounted Hobblers


Qua'A'Vi Mercenaries - 800 Calvary Archers




Battle:

In 2237 the Northern Iga'Vi Army of 10,000 Xen'Vi led by general Zaqua'Ji
massed upon the Valiero'Vi borderlands in response to the trade embargo
on Iga'vi goods by the Valiero'Vi trading companies. Collecting 1800
Aari'Vi mercenaries the army moved within 15 kilometers of the border.
Raids across the borders by local garrisons was quickly encouraged by
both sides and many of the local farms and villages were razed. The
Imperial Valiero'Vi Army was meanwhile called from the Qua'A'Vi frontier
regions in response to the military build up. Moving through the
southern half of the Valiero'Vi it collected 2500 Militiamen and 800
Qua'A'Vi mercenaries to a total of 13,000 Xen'Vi. Savloiu was placed in
command of the massive force. After 13 days of maneuvering and attempted
flankings of each other the Iga'Vi forces positioned themselves a top a
low ridge with a wide depression split by a shallow creek between them
and the Valiero'Vi.

After waiting for two days 300 Iga'Vi
skirmishers moved down the ridge and began attacking the outskirts of
the Valiero'Vi camp in the early dawn. Immediately all 600 Valiero'Vi
skirmishers began to repel the retreating enemy causing light
causalities. The Iga'Vi were followed by the Valiero'Vi skirmishers
into the brush surrounding the creek were another 400 Iga'Vi skirmishers
were waiting. In 30 minutes of bloody combat 370 Valiero'Vi were
killed, wounded or taken. 210 Iga'Vi skirmishers were lost. The
disseminated Valiero'Vi forces routed behind the main Valiero'Vi lines
which had formed up mean while.

Meanwhile the Iga'Vi army had
formed a top the ridge into a battle line. As soon as the skirmish
battle was lost all 600 mounted lancers under the Iga'Vi charged down
the hill after the fleeing Valiero'Vi. As they passed through the creek
the Iga'Vi lancers were charged by the main Valiero'Vi forces. As they
attempted to pull out they lost some 80 Xen'Vi. Quickly the majority of
the Valiero'Vi forces charged after them and up the hill. While the
majority went strait out for the main Iga'Vi battle line a detachment of
900 Qua'A'Vi Calvary Archers and Lancers chased directly after the
Iga'Vi lancers which moved to the Iga'Vi left. Un-noticed by the
Qua'A'Vi 200 Arquebus had been moved to the Iga'Vi left and lied in wait
amidst a grove of shrubbery. As the Qua'A'Vi followed after the lancers
they were scattered by several volleys of fire. They were then pounced
upon by the then regrouped lancers.

Meanwhile the Arquebus and
archers had scattered multiple charges but both the Valiero'Vi Calvary
and infantry. Slowly the Valiero'Vi mounted archers took their toll and
the Iga'Vi firing slowed as troops sheltered behind pavises. The Iga'Vi
artillery had been at that point firing at the Valiero'Vi though with
limited success due to their crews relative inexperience. (The cannons
being recently introduced to the Northern Army.) Similarly the
Valiero'Vi cannon crews were even less trained and the cannons
themselves were already outdated by the Iga'Vi forged weapons. The time
it took for the Valiero'Vi cannons to be wheeled into position also gave
time for the Iga'Vi to score several strikes upon the baggage trains
for the Valiero'Vi. These hits mostly forced the Valiero'Vi artillery to
only take a minor part of the battle.

The assaulting Valiero'Vi
calvary had by mid-morning pushed through the levies and pikemen of the
Iga'Vi and began to mill about the center of the army causing havoc.
Quickly a troop of Iga'Vi archers began to spray arrows into the calvary
causing minor casualties to their own forces but forcing back the
Valiero'Vi as reserves closed in. The flanks of the Valiero'Vi forces
were mostly formed of their levies due to the unordered nature of the
charge. Even though at first after they pushed against the Iga'Vi forces
they seceded in causing casualties they were slowly shoved back by fire
from flanking Arquebus fire.

As the Valiero'Vi casualties
mounted on the flanks the last of the Valiero'Vi reserves were ordered
into the fray including the Arquebus and pikemen. The tiny force of
soldiers were recently recruited into the Valiero'Vi forces and
completely untested in battle. They sustained three volleys from Iga'Vi
Arquebus after letting off one before routing from the field. 300 Iga'Vi
lancers pursued them and cut many of them down. These calvary then
caused havoc behind the Valiero'Vi forces, though they where whittled
down quickly by the enemy calvary to only a handful of Xen'Vi.

At
this point most of the Valiero'Vi lines had disintegrated and were
being thrown into rout. The Valiero'Vi infantry made a stand amidst the
creek but were broken by cannon fire. Similarly many Valiero'Vi calvary
regrouped at their camp but were then ambushed by the Aari'Vi Corsairs
and Marines which had previously been besieging a Valiero'Vi fort 13
Kilometers away, which had surrendered after a short skirmish.

As
the retreat became a complete rout the Valiero'Vi fled towards the
mountains where many would remain scattered for several days. What was
left of the reserves were salvaged by the Valiero'Vi commander and
pulled back towards the Valiero'Vi interior. The militias mostly fled
back to their homes.

The Iga'Vi forces then marched steadily
towards the Valiero'Vi capital sacking key cities at every opportunity
and sending out bands to pick off the remaining Valiero'Vi forces.
Taking 2000 casualties to the Valiero'Vi 6000 the Iga'Vi forces were
mostly intact but with heavy losses to their levies and calvary. While
the levies were little concern the loss of over half the calvary left
the Iga'Vi vulnerable to hit and runs. They also had to deal with 4500
prisoners which would plague them the entire campaign. At a port city of
Davadia they would execute 2000 to cut the strain on their baggage
trains.

The results of the battle was the complete loss of an
organized Valiero'Vi military and the onset of the loss of much of their
western territory for much of the war. With the lack of a military to
defend the north and east they lost great tracks of territories and
settlers to tribal incursions.

Reminds me of medieval... total war, that is. Anyway, it's good. I like it. But it seems a bit distant. Like it's... a history book rather then a novel, you know, just saying 'the cavalry charged the spearmen' rather then details of the gore and the chopping off of limbs and violence and all that that would have been in a battle. Of course this might be what you were going for. I haven't even read the op of this thread so it might just be for reference rather then to actually put in the book. I don't mean to offend either, only state my thoughts. That's if you wanted criticism. If you didn't then just ignore it. My post that is.

Cool, though if this is the battle where Iga originally entered Cyro'bar, it should be about 2180 or something. If it's one of the battles in the book, it'll be between 2237 and 2240.

Edited date. And yes it's basically modeled by myself towards a wikipedia style article.

And:

As the lancers waded across the stream shouting their war cries bursts of yelling erupted from the brush as scores of Valiero'Vi swarmed into the waters and began to pull the riders from their horses. The yells of triumph switched to screams and shouts of terror as pikes, spears and daggers impaled both mount and rider. The water brown from the disturbed silt blushed with pink as the Xen'Vi died within it. As they in vague horror watched the scene the commanding officers signaled for the deadly Iga'Vi phalanx to form...

Well, blushing could be easily recreated by numerous other actions. (Antennae waving, making sounds with their 5-6 voices, etc.)

Swelling of the head... I'd just make something up, I don't think there is a reason for people to blush, so why would they need too?

I have an idea for a battle. So the Humans are sending supplies along a trade route or supply line and are ambushed by the, oh darn! What is the name of the faction towards the southeern part of the map, dark purple?
So the Humans may have superior weponary but the natives, use skirmish tactics and well, ill come up wit hthe rest of the battle later.

The only reason humans have colonies where they do is because the natives let them.


As for the blushy thing, their antennae tense.
