The evil attack on the Blue Gates was unfolding in perfection. The combined forces of the black magicians and ninja had masterfully executed every aspect of the plan maintaining the stealth, speed and timing necessary to steal the City's water. The giant portals disguised as storms moved rapidly towards the destination while hordes of violent Ogres diverted the City's top soldiers from the primary ambush.

It is likely that the unnatural composition of the weird weather set the Ogres ablaze for the each of the external portals was raided with viscous force. In fact the beasts were so riled up that the guarding Ninja and supervising Sorcerers didn't stand a chance. Later investigations discovered that those that did not escape were gruesomely annihilated as the Ogres forced their way into the magic doorways. (Continue Reading)
