1. The Battle of Avesbury 2003
(SamDrackley This is my original write up of the battle. I may simplify it if I can later.)
The Garou on mass moved on Stonehenge via the Umbra. In the Umbra the Henge was complete and intact with the God of the Shards in the Centre surrounded with 4 armed Shards. Further out on the outer ring were a variety of Shards both small shards and 4 armed shards sitting on and around the outer Stones.
The Nation had divided into a variety of groups. On the North East Side were a group made up of Glasswalkers armed with Guns. To the North West was a mixed pack of Garou with the 4 Cubs who had turned. From the West was the Cairns of Scotland. From the South The Silver Pack, KLF and the Bloodied Tusks approached.
Above the Henge 2 Garou and 2 Corax were circling.
Finally from the South East a large boiling cloud of Darkness was approaching the Circle of Stones.
As the packs moved in on the Cairn a Moonbridge opened in the middle out of which popped the elders of the Nation next to the God of the Shards. A fight broke out between them the God of the Shards and the 4 armed shards surrounding him. JJ was hit by one of the 4 Armed Shards, a Shard and the God of the shards, at the same time Brings Balance to the Nation was hit by the God of the Shards and Knocked Back. Dog hit on of the 4 armed Shards while defending Argenna so she could try and sweep the God of the Shards but unfortunately missed. Julian Twice Dead was then hit by the God but it didnt seem to bother him much as he was surrounded in glowing night. 2 of the 4 armed Shards jumped Braggis tongue and knocked him to the floor and he looked seriously hurt.
On the outside Cooks the Books, Darkwater and Falcon beat 2 very small Shards. Speaks to the Point, Song on the Wind and Fights First, the Golden Toothed dispatched a small shard as well. Song was being carried by the other two who her flying forward in front of the Cubs. As the Silver Pack, KLf and Bloodied task approached there was a volley of fire into a 4 armed one which looked a bit hurt but was still standing. A couple more shots were fired but it was still there.
Back in the middle Argenna continued to try and hit the God and throw him to the ground but missed where as Dog moving and spinning hits a 4 armed shard. The God of the Shards meanwhile hits Julian Twice Dead a couple of times and he looked Shaken but was still up and then suddenly its tail came round and hits Julian dropping him to one knee. With a loud cry Julian leapt back to his feet looking on the edge of frenzy but reigns it in as he launches himself back at the god of the shards.
The Blackcloud approached the edge of the Circle of Stones and two of the 4 armed shards and two normal shards leapt at it. Green Balefire washed over them as they disappeared into the cloud.
On the Southern Side a Shard in the form of the Green Dragon shoots up out of one of the standing stones. It sprays the Silver Pack and KLF in Bale Fire. The Shards which were facing these slide to one side to Face Cooks the Books and Darkwater. At the same time Falcon swoops down to help protect Julian Twice Dead and Fenris runs towards Bragis.
On the Western Edge the Scottish Garou close with the Shards. Thunders Judgement, Rage like the Storm, Strikes from Silence engage one of the 4 armed shards. Thunders Judgement Bites down on the Shards hurting it so it hits him back several times. At the same time Silver Eye, Travels with music and Silence Dark whispers Shred a small Shard.
On the North East the Glasswalkers closed to within firing distance and started opening up with a variety of weaponry. About the same time Clashing Boom Boom appeared above them and it's bomb bay doors opened. Suddenly two 4 armed shards appered amongst the Glasswalkers and started laying into them. Cockroach leaps forward and attacks one of the Shards and Clashing Boom Boom opened up on another with it's 2 miniguns.

Meanwhile in the middle there is a large Pulse from the Dark Clouds above which strikes the Central Stone. A wall of granite rises up around Brings Balance to the Nation and Raven swoops in from over head dropping something on the God of the shards which covers him in liquid. Braggis Tongue Casually brushes off two of the small Shards only to be hit by the God Shard and goes down. As he gets back up Gives with Both Hands swoops down from above and snatched him into the air where Sings of Suffering swoops in and heals him. Dog Dispatches a small shard and lays into a 4 armed one which hits him twice and he drops to the floor and lies still. Argenna swings again at the king of the shards missing as she is pummelled by one of the 4 armed shards and falls to the floor next to Dog.
Darkwater is pummelled by the 4 armed shard. As he hits the floor he roars and rises to his feet again. Nearby Stag, Pheonix, Pegasus and Chimera charge the Green Dragon. The Silverpack and KLF move fast as the Dragon Snaps at them. The Dragon sprays fire back and forth engulfing the 4 totems.
