The DGaming Festival Sale is heating up, and there are just a few days to go. We're now moving onto the DGaming Legend items and Epic Warriors. These are the fiercest fighters in all of Blocklords, and their pasts have led them towards the status they now hold. Let's imagine what those pasts may have been, shall we?
Meet Barric Petit - DGaming Legend
Born to a legendary family of Petit warriors, Barric displayed his potential for combat and leadership from a very young age.
Barric learned to speak when he was just 7 and walk when he was 8 months old. At 11th month of age, he was already running around the house at full speed, chasing chickens and milking cows. At the age of 5, he came up with a better irrigation system that improved the efficiency of the entire farmland by 15%. That same system was soon adopted by everyone in the Old Continent.
The King, hearing of this young boy's genius, offered to personally school him and train to fight; Barric's father honorably accepted. Barric followed the King wherever he went, studying his customs, moves, and picking up his traits.
He trained with the best warriors in the Kingdom. Barric's quickness was unheard of. He fought many battles and won many wars, and people say his shield never got hit because of Barric's dodge & weave moves! Aside from being a legendary warrior, Barric was also a just ruler.
In a battle at Garonne Barric's army captured over 1,000 enemy soldiers. Instead of enslaving or executing them (like all other generals and rulers did), Barric released them. He said, "Soldiers should die on their feet, not on their knees"
Meet Ronald Brayton - DGaming Legend
When Ronald was just 6 years old, a group of bandits broke into his family's home and murdered everyone in search of a silver coin his father earned the day before. With tears in his eyes, Ronald somehow managed to sneak outside the house, and escaped to the woods, where stayed for the next 10 years.
In the woods, he learned how to survive on his own. His meat-only diet made him grew very tall and strong, almost as tall as those trees in the woods.
One night a group of bandits came to camp near his cabin. Ronald peaked through the crack in the door and recognized the same man he saw 10 years ago. Ronald followed the bandits to their homes and waited for the night to come. And when it came, he raided their homes and burned everything to the ground.
And when he found the bandit from his past, Ronald bashed his head with a mace until only a couple of hairs were left on his bare head. It later turned out that those bandits have been oppressing the region for years. The story of Ronald's bravery spread across the region, and he later became the region's official protector. Today, that's the only region in the country free of bandits, all thanks to Ronald.
Meet Arthur Payne - DGaming Legend
Arthur was the youngest son born to Charles and Elizabeth Payne, a wealthy English family.
He was born left-handed, which his family saw as a punishment for God. They forced him to do everything with his right hand, which he patiently did over time. As a teenager, he loved spending time at the docks, though his parents hated that.
There he learned how to trade and make favorable deals. The docks were also the intersection of all people and classes, and Arthur knew them all. Everyone liked Arthur because he treated everyone equally. His calm and patient nature inspired everyone to be a better person.
When he reached maturity and became the governor, he made decisions that benefited everyone. His knowledge of trade and economy made his city one of the richest in the world, a city where everyone wanted to live in. He was also one of the few governors that knew how to fight, having led his followers into several victories when the city was in danger.
Meet Barden Rieux - DGaming Legend
One day, a gigantic boy named Barden Rieux showed up at King's court asking for food and shelter. The King, seeing how Barden could one day be his personal bodyguard, took him under his wing.
Though he grew up in King's court, Barden remains humble to this day. And though kind by nature, he's by far the strongest man in the kingdom. Apparently, he once broke some poor man's back just by giving him a pat!
Barden might moves and walks slow, but his brain is faster than yours. He's not only the King's bodyguard but also his main strategist. He knows when to attack and when to retreat, where to position the troops, and how do deal a deadly blow to his foes. Ever since he became the main general, he hasn't lost a single battle, let alone war.
Barden is devoted to his King and his duties and has sworn to do them till the day he dies. Obtain him, and he'll forever be loyal to you and your kingdom.
Meet Philip Brunswick - Epic Warrior
Philip grew up with his older brother Luis. He was a shy boy from birth, avoiding eye contact and casual conversations. His brother was a merchant would often bring Philip to work to teach him. This early exposure to numbers and the economy made Philip an excellent trader.
But because Philip and Luis had no parents, they had no connections and no one respected them. Because of this, their store would often get vandalized by thugs. This made Philip mad, which is why he secretly paid one retired general to train him.
In this process, Philip realized that he's actually quite strong, stronger than anyone he knew. Even the general was amazed by Philip's strength, and in a year, Philip went from a bullied merchant to a skilled warrior that was eventually accepted in the King's elite squad.
When he went on to share the happy news with his brother, Philip found him lying beaten on the floor surrounded by 12 thugs. Without even thinking about it, Philip dropped his sword and dismantled the thugs in a minute with his bare hands. From that point forward, no one dreamed of touching his brother Luis.
Florent Petit - Epic Warrior
The true origin of Florent is still unknown. Some say he was a gift from the mythical Northern Giants, and others say he's a byproduct of an experiment performed by the witches.
In any case, Florent is a gigantic fella that has been managing the trebuchet for the army since he was 6 years old. Because he's so strong and tall, Florent is able to manage the thing on his own; push, measure, reload, fire...everything.
He has been doing that, and only that, for over 30 years now. When asked if he has any other plans in life, Florent would often respond "I'm loyal only to my King and my trebuchet" Aside from being the smartest siege weapon in the history of warfare, Florent is also excellent at handling logistics for the army.
He often helps plan the campaigns, organize food and water supplies, and sometimes even battle formations. Florent would've been a perfect soldier if it wasn't for the fact that he sometimes likes to shoot at butterflies with the trebuchet. Why? Nobody knows! If you obtain Florent, just make sure you try to catch as many butterflies as you can before the battle so that Florent doesn't start acting all weird.
