Pozenski Muter and his crew sailed east, returning home from a battle recently won. The seas were boisterous, tossing the ship side to side. The clouds appeared ominous and a flash appeared over the horizon. Pozenski felt cold and alone as his vision blacked out on him.
"Is everyone here?!" He shouted. "Who's hurt?!"
"I'm fine!" and "I'm okay!" were his sure signs of having some company. The crew looked for a way back into the cabins. A few were screaming, they must have been thrown overboard. Pozenski shook his head and drowned out the panicked screams with his desparation to get back inside. He made it to the door and found out it was locked!
"Oh, son of a-!"
Pozenski flew into the air, grabbing a plank beforehand, and was a speeding projectile into the abyss.
Of all the luck, the rain slowed into a drizzle... then stopped. The sun shone through and the ship was out of sight. Pozenski couldn't find anyone else. He held onto the wooden plank and slowly waited for his death.
Out in the distance, a foreign ship was headed over... what were the odds of that? As the boat was nearing towards him, he hoped for someone on the portside to see notice him. And if the chances of coincidences weren't enough, someone was looking out into the distance before he noticed that something strange was happening below him.
The crewmembers threw out a rope to Pozenski and helped him up. The ship was apparently headed towards a city called Lyrutia (Ly-roo-shuh). Pozenski has never heard of it, but it was better than dying slowly from lack of oxygen, food, and strength.
The sky was completely clear, all but the sun, and the path towards Lyrutia seemed heavenly as the seas calmed down as well. Whatever happened was fated to have Pozenski fall into the abyssal mouth of the ocean, then saved by a passing ship that could have been anywhere in the world.
I just wished that the workers would take from the stockpile nearest to them... .

From what I've experienced with the F1 invasions, the soldiers generally move up towards the max-plain area and destroy the walls there.
Also, siege towers would be quite necessary to bring the units up to the city as well. :)
