Outcome of the clash in terms of points:
The battle ended with a "Massacre" in favor of the Hobgoblins.
The Hobgoblins suffered 2619 loss points(Sandro).
The Yao suffered 5288 loss points(Sergio), with a difference of 2699 points.
The Yao have lost their entire army, except for the Tang General on giant tiger and a Yao General on foot. It was a sort of "Waterloo": in the middle of the battle the Yao were winning, having eliminated the Arachnotitan without suffering too many losses. The Yao Hero and the Yao Destroyer were free to move to the Goblin Warchief-Wizard mounted on giant spider. But at that point the Goblin Warchief-Wizard made a completely unexpected move: he summoned a Demon ("Fiend"), which blew up the plan that the Yoa Warchief had in mind, which in turn had to order the Triad of his Wizards to also summon a Demon (in dragon form) as a counter move. The battle continued with extreme fury, with many losses on both sides, but all in all fairly balanced. When there was only one turn left at the end of the battle, the fact that decided the outcome took place: the killing of the Yao Warchief by the summoned Fiend. This caused the General Command Test which resulted in the route of all that remained of the Yao army, including the Dragons, the Hero and the Destroyer. The only ones left were, as mentioned above, the Tang General on a giant tiger and one of the three Yao Generals on foot. The Yao will have to prepare a new army to send against the Hobgoblins and wash the shame of this defeat.
Another epic battle of Naran Fantasy Wars!
