Unearthing of the Tower

1/3

Imperial Age 89, 18th day of 2nd month. Very low traces of energy were identified inside the ocean. An investigation has indicated that we’ve discovered some ruins. By our calculations, it may exceed the power of anything we’ve seen.

2/3

The data we’ve gathered has indicated that this is, in fact, one of the ancient ultimate weapons, a ‘Tower’. By Imperial order, all excavation processes have ceased and all efforts have shifted to reviving the Tower.

3/3

To reawaken the Tower, engines from the 2nd Regiment Battleships were removed and attached to breathe new life into the Tower. After 12 full days, the Tower’s status had not changed.

Appearance of the Dragons

1/4

Once the Tower was successfully unearthed, a full scale investigation began. But the missing elements needed for reactivation eluded us. We continued testing, but no apparent reactions have been noticed.

2/4

What finally broke its stagnant state was something coming from the frontier. A pair of dragons were seen approaching the Tower. We now believe they are what triggered the Tower’s reaction.

3/4

Soon after the Tower showed life, two dragons were sighted east of the Imperial Capital. A squadron was hastily assembled near the border and sent to capture the rapidly approaching dragons.

4/4

But the dragons were more powerful than anything our forces had faced before. We even attempted to use our prototype weapons, but the battle only resulted in the total annihilation of our troops.

1/4

By the time the dragons approached the Imperial Defense line, Headquarters had abandoned any plans of capturing the dragons. We gathered our remaining forces to counterattack, but victory was impossible against these demons.

2/4

The two dragons broke through the defense line, easily reaching the Tower, and then they began fighting. Suddenly, the Tower’s power output increased dramatically.

3/4

With the Tower’s change, a massive horde of monsters rose from the sea. Then the Tower’s outer shell opened, taking one of the dragons in. The Tower instantly became fully operational.

4/4

Reports vary about what happened next. The only fact is the Tower is gone. It was reported that one of the dragons grew to a colossal size and the ensuing battle destroyed the Tower. But there has been no confirmation.

Tower Defense Concept

1/3

Due to the battle between the dragons, attacks from the sea monsters, and the destruction of the Tower, most of the Imperial Capital was destroyed. The loss of life will mark this as one of the darkest days in our history.

2/3

Fortunately, the Palace and Academy suffered only minimal damage, but these events led to a reexamination of our defense plan. And, as a result, we have begun building a large scale flagship, ‘Grig Orig’.

3/3

The Flagship Grig Orig is a flying Fortress. When completed, not even a dragon could penetrate its defenses and harm his highness.
