The food warehouses are burning and they aren’t able to be put out by water.
The fortress had a few wells for drinking water, but that’s nowhere near enough water
to put out a fire of this size. A bucketful of water is doing absolutely nothing
to the blaze, but the soldiers have to fight it as it’s burning their food.
Even the archers and lookouts are joining in the attempt to fight the
fire. Nobody was around to notice the side gate quietly open.
I was the one opening the side gate and peeking out. I spy a large and ready
force from the Kingdom Army waiting for me.
