This is one of the most important castle in the Romanian Country. Yes it is. The legendary Bran Castle , the natural home of the great ruler Vlad Dracul aka Vlad Tepes.
Vlad Tepes was going to Bran for military duties. The commander of this castle, Vladislav, expect Vlad is coming to give him some suplies for the next years, but Vlad Tepes comes for an inspection, in order to test the caslte garrison. Still, a hungarian messager comes and arrived a message from Radu The Beauty.
-Messager: My lord. Im coming with news from your brother, Radu. He order me to give this message as soon as posible. I think is important, isnt it?
-Vlad Tepes: Well.....lets see.
-Vladislav: So? What is it?
-Vlad Tepes: Damn it. Just read : ,, Greetings brother, but im giving you some bad news. You know....the Turkish Empire attack our countries for ages. But now, they are back. Ive being attacked by the Turkish leader, Mohamed, but now my scouts told me that they are coming for you. I dont know how they find your location, but they are going to Bran Castle. Im sorry but i cant give you any troops. Still, good luck, Vlad. I know you are strong and can beat your enemies. I hope you will win this time.''
-Soldier: Thats not good. Our defense is far from good. I think we must get to work....
-Vlad Tepes: ...but first i will send some scouts to see how far the enemy is. We need those informations in order to request goods from all of our near castles.
-Vladislav: There is a small village in the woods outside the hill of our caslte. They allways have goods for us. Maybe they can help us.
-Vlad Tepes: Yes.....but they cant hold on for long. If the turkish army will come, im sure they will attack the village first.
-Soldier: So what we are gonna do?
After two days of waiting and preparing for war, the scouts have returned at last.
-Scout: My lord.... the message is true. The enemies are coming from Transilvania into our country......and im afraid they are too near. I think next morning they will be here.
-Vladislav: What??? Vlad what we are gonna do? We have a small army to fight.
-Vlad Tepes: Cursed Otomans. Hmmmm.....i think this is gonna be hard. But still...our warriors are brave and can kill the turkish guys in one hit. I called some troops from the capital Targoviste and they are coming soon. I hope they can come just in time....
-Soldier: My lord.....the villagers outside the castle have seen bands of enemy troops heading this way. We are outnumbered my lord.....
-Vlad Tepes: Then we must fight!
Its your who will decide if Vlad will win or not. The destiny is at hand! Use it wisely.
