The sky blazed in fire as catapults flung scorched rock and the wretched smell of death fill my nostrils as I tighten my armor and tighten the harness of my helmet waiting in anticipation for the inevitable invasion of the castle.
"CHARGE" a near by commander howled as the raiding party scrambled out of the invasion tower which sauntered over the castles walls as if it was teasing the enemy troops of our presence in their fortified position.
"Guts get moving, we arn't being paid to glare at the enemy" a man near me yells in my ear.

Guts emerges from the crowd sword in
