The Kingdom Army is fighting under the command of Lieutenant General Simon, but they’re
struggling against the Westin Army’s fort. Even though it was made of logs
covered with boards, it was quite effective. Arrows flew like rain from the
fort, so it was difficult to approach.
The Kingdom’s Army fires back, but nearly all their arrows are stopped by the
fort’s walls. Under the barrage, the Kingdom Army was taking losses.
“Dismantle the carriages to make shields! It’s enough to stop the arrows!”
Lieutenant General Simon
“Can you really consider this a shield?” Wayne
The shield he was handed was a board from the carriage with a small handle
“I guess it’s better than nothing?” Wayne
He holds the shabby shield like an umbrella to stop the arrows from falling
down on him. It can’t stop all the arrows on the sides though.
As the army gets closer to the fort, the Westin army starts to take aimed shots,
where they aren’t saturating an area, but shooting at a specific person. The army
changes the placement of the shield to more of a diagonal space relative to the fort. Some arrows pierce
through the makeshift shield kill the soldier on the spot.
Finally, a few soldiers reached the fort.
Wayne inserts his two-handed sword into the fortifications and pries the board
loose. He and the other soldiers find that there are no foot soldiers around,
“I can fight like this!” Wayne grins as he jumps into the fort
The archers are felled by Wayne and the other soldiers one after another.
Archers take time to line up each arrow, and the archers were not issued shortswords
to defend themselves. It’s difficult to line up an arrow when a swordsman is
coming straight for you.
As the archers were disrupted, the Kingdom Army outside the fort saw the
arrow rain lose most of its strength, meaning more of the Kingdom Army
could approach and enter the fort.
