Silvershield's Primal Judgement
The grasslands were silent in the night aside from the the bellowing snores of the great Rexes that were lying amidst the grass close to a nearby group of minotaur yurts, huts, and long houses. All silent aside from padded footsteps and clinking glass and metal, the tell tale pale light of life magic faintly lit the distant blades of grass ever so faintly as a small group of figures clad in white approached. A small platoon of Silvershield approached.
"Quiet down herbalist, your tinctures are making a racquet" said the Silvershield assassin bounding silently alongside and herbalist encumbered with many beakers and satchels. Meanwhile a small regiment of soldiers, archers, and weak mages carried a mysterious cart behind them wrapped in an enormous canvas cloth. Once they got within 100 meters of one of the Rexes in peaceful slumber the herbalist started muttering to himself and rummaging through his pockets, bags, beakers, and vials.
"Quickly now, you know High Priest Darius doesn't like waiting when he wants something, especially something he doesn't know intimately about yet" said the assassin as he checked and double checked the surroundings in case their presence had attracted the attention of the nearby minotaur camp. Nothing. The herbalist proceeded to grind mash and mix various herbs and liquids together, some would fizz and sizzle and others would produce small light vibrant color or terrible odor. After several minutes the herbalist had produced two vials.
"Now to administer it, place it within one of it's nostrils. It should act as a tranquilizer but we wont have much ti-" before the herbalist could even finish the assassin was already weaving through the tall grass approaching the beast. With a quick tug the top came off and with a deft throw in landed inside of the creature's nostril.
"Now" whispered the assassin as he gestured the rest of his regiment to come forward. The cart moved quickly to the dinosaur and the soldiers pulled off the canvas to reveal a large ornately runed magical armor. They then proceeded to place the fixtures on the beast while it was in it's temporary hibernation. Upon completion the herbalist drew the second vial from his breast pocket.
The regiment fled to safe distance as the herbalist loaded his trusty quiver and fired into the animals right nostril.
"There now we should be able to take the beast to Darius" before even a moment had passed the
the beast woke and it was rather irritated. Looking around to see what has put these heavy armor segments upon it, only to see the minotaur village... It stampeded in that direction. The regiment looked on as the herbalist took notes.
"What does that tonic do exactly herbalist?" asked a soldier as the Rex roared and charged towards the village as they could hear the minotaurs horns sound as various gruff voices barking orders was heard among shield beating.
"It was supposed to pacify the beast, but instead it seemed to enter a completely malicious rage without target or direction. Not what was expected but equally effective for use against our enemies" said the herbalist as he and a few of the mages scrawled more notes.
"Yes, but I will still let you be the one to tell him" said the assassin.
After they all watched in silence as the weapons of the minotaurs deflected off of the magically runed armor as the cries of the minotaur and crunching of bone echoed out across the vast plains. And then as quickly as they came they vanished back into the seemingly endless grasslands. Drawn with pencil, ink, and marker this is a concept doodle for the Plated Rex.
