Cragmore is a small area in Northern England. It is very hilly, and also contains a castle built on a natural rocky outcrop overlooking the sea. Two rivers, the Gorn and the Ventern flow into the sea here, The Gorn from nearby Lake Gorthobia, and the Ventern from the Penines. The Castle here contains three sections-The Outer courtyard, the economic section, and the Inner Courtyard, which is inside the thickest section of Castle Wall. Any attacker wishing to get into the Keep must first destroythe Outer Gatehouse, and then hack their way through the inner walls to the Keep. The area of Cragmore, would, if it were around in Medieval times, be a Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI).
"Men, we must not let this castle fall into the hands of those Scotish Barbarians! Who knows what those flithy scum would do with the place! Probably take it apart and eat it! We must protect the castle at all cost! To Arms Men!"
The Archers run to their specified tower, and the Swordsmen and Pikeman patrol the Inner Courtyard, while all the workers go to the Keep tostay as safe as possible. The Lord retreats to the Keep, and prepares for the inevitable siege force.
"Hurry! The Scots will be hear shortly! everybody, get to your post and ready yourself! Here they come!"
The Maceman, yelling "We are the Maceman!" Come charging to the moat, accompanied by archers, and engineers, who build many Catapults and Trebuchets. The Main Gate is destroyed, and the Maceman pour towards the thick walls of the Inner Courtyard, whilst a group of Swordsmen march up to assist them. One by one, the Towers fall, and the gatehouse is breached! The soldiers pour in, up the wall stairs, and towards the Lord...
