Battle of Red Snow (Revised)

Recommended Posts

 

 

Snow flakes of Yatl wasteland were falling down on marching troops. Harsh climate might have been a big issue for many, but they were not showing even the slightest signs of weakness. Not this day. Eager to fight, ready to bring justice down upon those who have been cowering behind their frozen walls for too long.

In the meantime, leaders of each group gathered in the command tent were discussing their plans of action, each tossing in a coin of idea into the upcoming battle. Proud and noble heartlanders, harsh and war eager highlanders, and ruthless Camel Bandits. All standing on the same side, connected by common foe or goals. They knew it was time to bring it all to the end.

 

- Fear not what is to come, as we are the pride of each kingdom, duchy, settlement! Those that stand against us are weak, afraid, lacking any true leaders! Thomas may have forced them to believe their cause is righteous, but I assure you, that this man is nothing more than a snake with no fangs! We will put an end to his tyranny, we shall drag him out of his castle and let all and every broken oath be finally put to justice, as GOD demands! - With thunderous voice William has given his speech to gathered troops of all groups, being greeted with equally strong roars calls to fight. It was the perfect moment to begin the battle and to lead all troops to deserved glory.

 

--

 

What they faced was more than pathetic at this point. Thomas tossing last of his troops and bringing in many citizens forced to defend their homes, under equipped, not even properly trained. And what brought the biggest grudge into the hearts of the soldiers who were about to slaughter Rivians - Thomas not even showing up to lead them. Possibly hiding in his sky-god prison, or maybe cowering behind the walls of Rivia. Who knows? One thing was clear though. Not one man there was ready to lead them properly, as peasants held onto their scythes, axes and pitchforks, faced with a well trained army.

Horns echoed through frozen wastelands as one army advanced on another. Well organised and synchronized march of Blackreach troops at center lasted until the Rivians approached in the skirmish zone. Then, with one loud roar from William, all troops began their charge, crashing into the peasant army with overwhelming force, slaughtering many on the spot, with  the outstanding performance of Algar Cannell, wandering warrior who turned out to be a veteran of unmet strength. Despite that it didn’t turn into full rout, as the men of ice wall knew that should they retreat, Thomas would show no mercy to them either.

 

With the central part of  the battlefield turning into a bloody mosh pit, troops of Arberrang arrived at the arranged time. Towering norsemen and shieldmaidens with warpaints on their faces, not even slightly affected by cold began their warchant. With Wulffrey, elder of Skarpefanger clan at center, and Karyssmov, elder of Faroe clan by his side, they reached the rear of Blackreach troops, who made a sudden opening in the wall of men, letting all the Gorundyr troops strike head first into Rivian lines like spears, breaking through the stalemate, causing chaos amongst enemy warriors. Their right flank was disrupted by unexpected strength courtesy of Ingvildr Faroe, shieldmaiden that managed to rout first of enemy troops by her terrifying presence.

 

The clash of the center lasted for a good few minutes. Despite favor being on the side of Blackreach and their allies, it was still dangerous to continue the fight for too long, as frozen air was affecting allied troops more than Rivian peasants. Yet fate of fight was decided long before it even started. Horns once again echoed through the wastelands, bringing terror into the hearts of defenders.

 

On the right flank Vasile mounted knights led by Charles Halcourt  crushed into the back of Rivian lines. The already weavering warriors fell into wild rout, dropping their arms into the red from blood snow. Yet no one was allowed to escape, as both Vasile knights and Camel Bandits had ensured that they will not be able to deliver back any messages to their commanders. It was a grave message for Thomas. A clear declaration, that if he won’t surrender, it’ll end even worse than that.

 

As the right flank began shattering, the left flank was surprisingly doing better than the rest. Composed of mostly well trained troops, they were able to push Blackreach back a few good meters, putting in danger the center. Yet even that was put into consideration during the planning stage. What sounded like earthquake, turned out to be a charge of the main cavalry force. Ser Wilhelm Devereux with his second in command, Edward Devereux, have brought Curon with their numbers onto the field of battle, crushing Rivia’s dominating flank within merely one minute, leaving not even one troop able to run as it was over.

With that, the center had fallen in an instant. Rivian horns sounded in call for retreat, but there was no speaking of that. Blackreach along with their Gorundyr allies plowed through shattered lines, letting go only the last few who were meant to let Thomas know about this crushing defeat. Allied forces had taken this victory with barely any losses, turning a battlefield into a landscape filled with crimson red far and wide. It would take many days to bury all those who had fallen here.


 

Credit for this goes out to ThunderTheTitan and Wulfery. Thank you guys for the help.

Charles Halcourt would nod to his men in approval of what they showed in the field of battle.

"Well done men."

Karyssmov glances at the soldiers marching to encircle the soon-defunct Rivia. "Barely had anyone to fight against. Was it really fair?" he snorts out, an attempt to be humorous but it sounded more like a genuine question coming from him. He shakes his head, and returns to tending to the few wounded that the men of Curon, Blackreach, Vasile, and Arberrang had.

 Hand on his clans axe, eye focused on walls of Rivia. Amount of times he has been past them, both to defend, and to seek blood... a little too much. Even if that is the first time he actually goes against people who live there, instead of raiders or be undead, it was good to feel that it'll all come to an end soon enough. Putting his free hand atop of Karyssmovs arm, he would nod.

 "Tha' be only our first victory brother. Many more to come, as world shall hear about Arberrang and Gorundyr kin. With yer ability to swing yer sword like madman, and me experience in regards o' war land, I be sure tha' nei gonna be our last time we get the glory." And so he would turn to rest of marching troops, all combined of so many different cultures and groups. "For we are those tha' bring GOD justice down onto those who break oaths! For we are all brothers in arms and we nei gonna yield to some arse!"

Algar Cannell smiles as he reads allowing a few short moments to pass before dropping to his knees raising head to the sky looking up a single tear would roll down his cheek as he slowly begins to nod "Now this ... this is beautiful ... I am proud to call these lads kin"

Sarah Jameson stood in the icy tundra looking over to Rivia, it's dim fires glowing in the darkness of the wastelands, listening to her soldiers and allies reveling in their victory, "This may have been a glorious battle but it holds a heavy toll, Thomas the cowardly hides away while his people fight for him, not even showing his face to lead a defense. It makes me wonder if he truly cares at all." she said to herself, before turning to join her soldiers.

Invildr Sigrunn grumbled as Karyssmov patched up her axe wound. Luckily, she had not been felled; however, she had faced quite the beserker alone before her allies rushed in and assisted her to crush them. She also gazed to her allies and fellow Gorundyr whom celebrated their victory, "Thaeti var en dapur syna laeta Rivia. Eyja var seira leida'de?"
