Set in the mid 1200's, this is the seige of the Iron Hills.
Chaos and tryanny reigns throughout England. A great famine and poor economic conditions have led to an uprising of the people against the power of the Crown, led by power hungry nobles seeking to use the mood of the populace to dethrone the king.
The King has put you in charge of the army, and you have quickly crushed the smaller uprisings of the land. But now word reaches your scouts that the largest and most powerful of the rebel forces has made a bold march across southern England and threatens the Iron Hills outpost, seeking to take over the vast iron deposits to cripple the manufacture of weapons for your forces.
Realizing the entire campaign to wipe out the rebels may hinge on this battle, the commander of the rebels, the traitorous Lord Arowynn, has brought his entire army to bear against the outpost.
You and your small force arrive and begin to prepare the defenses of the installation. You are woefully outnumbered, and you grimace as you hear the horns of the enemy approaching.
