The Shadow alliance - reinforcements from the forest
As time passed Balethor had noticed growing numbers of strange beings entering his forest.
No longer was it small groups of men walking scared into the forest or marauders looking for trees for fuel. This was something new. Men clad in steel from head to toe and great beasts of flesh riding even bigger monsters.
From small quick encounters with these foes Balethor could tell he needed help the ogres could not be slowed down no matter what they were hit buy. The knights not even noticing arrows as they bounced off there steel shell.
Balethor knew only one place he could go. He headed deep into the forest searching for allies right in the heart he traveled the trees so thick no light hit the ground. As he headed deeper he could feel eyes watching him, he could feel them in the darkness. Balethor knew he was on the right track then he stepped into a clearing where a massive gigantic tree stood proud bathed in moonlight. Suddenly with an earth shattering rubble the tree began to move turning around. Balethor could now see the face of a great wise Treeman.
“Who are you” roared the treeman his voice boomed throughout the clearing. “I am Balethor of the shadow alliance”. “Ha Shadow alliance Ha am I meant to be impressed that means nothing here” “ you think running around in the shadows makes you strong?”. Balethor Stared into the eyes of the treeman angry at what he had said but keeping calm
“I protect these woods, I protect you”
“I DON’T NEED YOU” the trees around shaking and many animals scattered from the Treemans awesome power
“surely you have seen and heard there are more now than ever entering our forest our home, you cannot just sit there doing nothing” Balethors Temper Rising fist clenched by his sides he could feel his muscles tighten as they do just before battle.
The Treeman just stood there staring at Balethor, He could feel his gaze almost like it was looking into him. “You are no ordinary elf I can see great power and determination within you”. “You Don’t understand it yet but it makes a great warrior and leader”
“I shall lead you help Balethor I give you some of the finest warriors in this forest the tough, Resilient Treekin”
Three monstrous Beings emerged from the dense forest behind Balethor each far bigger than Balethor. Balethor had never seen these creatures but there presence on the battle field he felt would be something to behold. As they entered the clearing they bowed before him pledging there allegiance to his cause. ”prove yourself worthy of command and I will send more”.
While travelling back to his home Balethor could not quite understand what changed the treemans mind about him. However this question would have to wait greater enemies were approaching he could see fires from camps across the land stretching out as far as he could see. He knew this was just the first step.
