A vast land is reserved for the game of blood!

64 km square land prepares for the biggest battle of the history. The White Warriors and The Black Bulls are geared up. The two clans had been at loggerheads since ages. A cold rivalry was established when the High Emperor commanded a pact between them to settle their scores. A grand wall was raised between their respective lands and none was allowed to cross it. This had prevented any break out of any animosity for long enough, though hearts were craving for justice unknown. Both of them had been wanting a slit for openly disgracing one another. Just a week ago, soldiers of both the clan witnessed a person infiltrating their land by illegal means! Fumigated White and Black kings ordered the war on each other.


The land trembled as the war brews up. Best of both the creeds with the best of their accolades and possessions. Huge Rook elephants and agile breed of Knight horses march into the battle field. Well trained and brave cavalry aligns itself amongst the dust and and that blows with a hush, dreadful silence! The mighty Bishop camels also arrive on the battleground. The Blacks have elephants with the strength of twenty whales per creature while the White ones are broader in shape and with trunks possessing immense flexibility. White horses are unicorn like whilst the Blacks march with stallions that look like Pegasus. The Camels are tall th and strong with amazing grip on the sand. They have ability of being exhausted after two months. These camels stand beside the panel of brainy ministers and officials who command the forces. This troupe of Ministries in the Black clan have magical powers of transformation and can disguise in various forms. The White Officials are blessed with great skills of warrior and can order arrays on the ground wisely.


The Kings arrive and in the distance, growl at each other. Disgust and hatred is what they bear for one another. A huge multitude of courageous soldiers score the field on both the sides, standing with a broad chest in front of their loyal Highness. They will go at any length to save their master from his enemy. The White soldiers yell in enthusiasm to plant seeds of fierceness in their Black fellows. The other party, sense them and begin to beat their chests, thump their spears and draw their swords. War cries begin from both directions and before the White King could blink, the black soldiers charged against them, running towards White pawns for their blood. The White King consults his officials and they suggest the release of the unicorn Knights first. the command is carried out an soon the unicorn soar up high in the sky and attacking upon the black soldiers. The Black King, orders his Ministries to release their Pegasus in reply to their Unicorns.


The Pegasus engage in a gut wrenching fight with the Unicorns while the White Rooks are commanded to advance. The Black Bishops form a troupe, backed by soldiers march forward in response to their Rooks while another troupe of black Rooks, aiming for the White King's seat, are released. Seeing the destruction being caused by the Pegasus to the unicorns, the White officials send a regiment of archer pawns to bring down the Pegasus. But the negligence in watching for the King's Security, the rooks which were left for the purpose, reach to ninety percent success. A check!


One white Official realizing their fault, comes in between to cease the mishap and lay down it's life. A big victory to the Black Bulls. They bloat up with confidence while the White Warriors flush red in anger and vengeance. Another big blow to the Whites when Pegasus take down all of their Unicorns. The White Officials gear up and an excellently crafted array of soldiers is formed. This, not only has a great defensing capability but also advances forward with a killing spree. The bold Black soldiers now pile up as martyrs on the battlefield. The high soaring Pegasus are brought down first by the Whites after which they aim for the Black Ministers and eventually the king. The strong Rooks are a big challenge! Blacks are alarmed, now. They place their Rooks ahead to fortify the Black King. The White pawns and the Officials give a tough fight. Alas! a lot of them die yielding nothing. The White King, sees that thy are less in number and so, construct a strategy!


He places his Rooks against theirs. The black Rooks are outnumbered and the White Rooks using their flexible trunks try to pin down the heavy Black Rooks. Given a tough fight when even the Black Ministers disguised as soldiers couldn't stand in front of the tug of war of the huge elephants! The White elephants triumph over the black ones and soon the best of hunters in the White infantry charge upon the pinned down rooks and destroy them. Now the Blacks are stunned and bang their heads to figure out how to end the White elephants. The battle continues and the scene seems to tip to and fro. The black camels distract the white elephants to a spot where they couldn't stand on the sand and begin to get engulfed in the sandy land. The
