They attacked without warning, drove us from our land and homes. Our last hope was to flee and regroup at the old fortress up in the mountains.
The mountain fortress has not been used in ages and is now only a crumbled old ruin. Perhaps we can salvage some of the stone to be used as building materials for some new defences?
The enemy are attacking soon so we must hurry with our preparations! Some reinforcements from the King are on their way, but are held up by ambushing bandits at the mountain pass. We need to clear it so that the Kings men can get through!
As if all this isn't enough this is probably the hottest summer anyone can remember, making everything dry as tinder. So watch out for fires!
