A peek into part III

General Rimyar wiped the sweat from his brow as he finally saw the siege tower move forward. It had taken time and a lot of work to get it up the small hill, but now it wass downhill to the fortress of the imperial garrison.

He had expected the imperial troopers on their knees begging for mercy by now, after three days, but they proofed to be hardened and disciplined soldiers. The fires started inside the fortress by burning arrows had been put out quickly, while archers took position on the battlements to meet the sudden attack.

The stonethrowers and catapults had done little to impress the besieged troops inside.

But after three days of almost constant bombardment and rains of arrows they still stood strong. This was not what Rimyar had expected.

He watched as the siege tower rumbled down the slight hill and jumped as a huge stone smashed into the top, practically destroying it.
