They have been trapped in a hill fort by mercenaries! The castle is vulnerable! Tomorrow we attack!
Castle Gunwale is without there best two knights and half the garrison!
WERE UNDER ATTACK!
Then we need to get to the west tower where we can hold out indefinitely!
Tyson and Ryder take half of Castle Gunwale's garrison to attack what they think are just 20 untrained men. This is a trap. Out from bushes, appear a hundred well fighting men. The garrison just barely escapes to a hill fort.
There's no time to waste! Let's go!
My lady! We're under attack!
Alex, the queen's daughter, finds out about this meeting and secretly listens in. After a while, they figure this out and go after her. So she can't warn her mother or tell her about Ryder, the queen's husband.
Run, Sandra! I'll hold them of as long as I can till I'm killed
Dimon, the former castle garrison member, is leading the attack. He says he has extra troops, which stalls the gatehouse crew enough for Dimon and his troops to get in. Meanwhile, Alex has found secret tunnels under the castle, one of which goes to the west tower.
One of her sentries quickly tell the queen they're under siege. The queen, Sandra, decides to flee to the west tower with all the troops left. The 8th and 9th floors are basically impregnable.
While they are running up the stairs, enemy soldiers catch up. Maikeru tells Sandra to run and he will sacrifice his life for her. Maikeru deflect arrows as long as he can until they shoot crossbow bolts at the same time. He gives Sandra enough time, however.
Neularions are the best fighting men you could possibly get. In the last years Neularia has become friends with the country of Ellesmere, and it's capital, Gunwale. The Dragon Bred crew fixes a Neularian ship. The ships crew joins Dragon Bred's journey back to Gunwale, save three, to guard the ship.
