Fort Broniant

Postby Dusty » Fri Jan 09, 2009 3:03 pm

*The wind blew heavily against the partially built walls of Fort Broniant, pining its battered banners against its cracked stone whipping the heavy wool cloaks of the guards and workers as if they were light cloth. A few squires are running to and fro between the men and woman as they work caring water, some are helping move the rubble that still lays strewn about the fort.*

*Sir Jasper winces as he straightens from his work on the new trench. He leans on his shovel and runs his hand through his sweat drenched hair, now showing a few speckles of grey among his black hair. A squire approaches and passes him a bowl of water with a wet towel. He washes his hands and wipes his face, looking out to the west where the sun is beginning its decent towards the mountain ranges. As he is about to lean on his shovel again he catches a glint of light reflecting off armour. With out a second thought he start to stride back towards the fort even as the alarm is called. The squires and other knights falling in behind him as they gather in the courtyard, their squires rushing amongest them with armour and other equipment, they would be taking any chances after the last attack which almost destroyed the forts walls. The enemies of Mektar did not come from Gweria alone.*

*Sir Jasper is on the walls appearson the battlements in very little time, adorned in his armour across his back can be seen a Great sword and under it flapping out from him like a banner his cloak, marking him as the commander of the fort. The approaching force is now fully visible, a large group of well armoured people organised into three dead straight columns with mounted troops moving at its flanks and vanguard. One figure near the centre of the vanguard carries a large heavy cloth banner which gently ripples as the force moves steadily towards Fort Broniant. A strong gust whips the banner out and its symbol can be plainly seen, an eight sided blue outlined white star upon a white background.*

*The lead rider, banner bearer and two other mounted warriors break off from the vanguard and ride forward coming to a stop, well within range of any archer. The young man leading the group dismounts and walks forward, his sword at his side. His banner bearer follows suit, the Orc dismounting and walking forward to a position just behind the lead knight with the banner in his hands and a shield on his back.*

*The Knight calls up in a clear voice that is easily audible above the wind even for those on top of the walls*
“Good day to you nobale defenders of Broniant. I am Sir Kalistan a Knight of Asternia and Chapter Master of the Order of Light. I was formerly 2nd Lieutenant of the 32 Heavy Infantry Battalion of the Knights under the command of the former Paladin of Mektar Jasmen. I am here to offer you help in this dark hour. I bring men and supplies to aid in the rebuilding of the forts as well as news of events to the west and south. Will you allow me and my men to enter?"

*Sir Jasper steps forwards slightly to stand out from his men and calls down in an equally clear voice*

"Well Met Sir Kalistan. I am Sir Jasper, Commander of this fort. I remember you well, both as a squire and and from the Battle of Boar Hill. I welcome you to this fort as a Son of Mektar, however far you may have travelled since those days. Any aid you can offer is most welcome. Enter and we shall make arrangements for your men."

*Calling up to the battlements Sir Kalistan says*

“Thankyou Sir Jasper it is a shame we have not met sooner and in such times as these?”

**Within the damaged Fort, a young Knight, new to the world but tried and tested by battle, rises to his feet and makes his way to the entrance. Passing a few less well trained members of the forces there, offering them a nod and a smile, he passes through the gate and stands rigidly to attention, saluting Kalistan and saying nothing**

Standing where he was the young knight was not yet in Sir Jasper's line of sight so he continued uninterrupted

"Indeed he has, but we shall talk of that later. Come inside and we shall talk more privately. There is little point in us shouting at each other like this all day"

*After giving a nod of recognition to the young knights salute, sir Kalistan signals to the distant troops. Instantly the cavalry move into a formation either side of the ground troops facing away from the fort, as the ground troops and supplies pass in between them heading towards the entrance. Sir Kalistan and Gren return their horse and once in the sadle sir Kalistan says to his captain:

“Gren I want you to see to it that the troops get set up give them an hour break and then coordinate our man power with sir Jaspers men. I’m going to take the Calvary and scout a few leagues to the east of Broniant, will aim to be back here in a couple hours”

After that vanguard lead by Gren gallop off to the entrance of Broniant while sir Kalistan returns to the Calavary getting back onto his horse.*

**The young Knight follows Kalistan closely, trying to get his attention**

"Sir Kallistan, Sir, I was hoping if I might humbly ask your advice on some things Sir?"

Squire Gren walks with Sir Kalistan back to the calvalry, hands the banner to the captain and holds Sir KAlistans horse while he mounts. He then heads into the fort.

**Squire Gren Karrock, First Squire of Sir Kalistan, Armorer of the Order of Light**

*Once saddled Kalistan lifts from his neck a shell ring hanging on a piece of rope and paces it to Gren before he leaves for the fort. Startled by the young knights voice Kalistan turns to see the short man who came out to great him*

**The young Knight humbly kneels.**

"I am Leonard Fountain Sir, and I have served loyally here for many months. I would seek your permission, and advice, for a journey to Fort Drake, where I understand they are lacking in honour and the ways of Mektar. I would seek to show them what honour is Sir, not through words, written or spoken, but through my actions and my life."

I think you seek a worth while cause and if you are in need of a place to stay my chapter house is in Pathway your more than welcome to stay there. Though I would get the permission from Sir Jasper your not under my command to release.

*With a smile and a nod towards Sir Leonard he turns his cavalry around and gallops off into the north east*

*Sir Kalistan cavalry can be seen coming up from the south, several hours later, and enters the Fort. After dismounting and a few words with his captain, Sir Kalistan makes his way to what is left of the Keep. Entering the study (now acting as the planning room) Sir Kalistan formally introduces himself and then approaches the table with the map of the surrounding area to report what he saw within four leagues of the Fort. Once finishing his report Sir Kalistan asks*

“Is there any news from the Paladin of Mektar?”
