As the evening fires burned low to mimic a bard’s solemn song, the garrison of Fort Se Pucia relaxed in the open spring air or tucked away in their bunks. In the distance, the faint clang of the company’s blacksmiths challenged the works of the minstrel…no one seemed to notice or mind.
This had been the way of things.
Everyday, a patrol was sent out into the forest to search for elves or goblins or anything else that challenged the might of the people of Hanen. The orders were always simple, kill on sight, loot, burn, or leave for the carrion eaters.
The men and women of C company had been placed in charge of holding and advancing the southern boundaries of Hanen. A mixed unit of soldiers, magic-users, holy-men, thieves, and every race found in the known lands made C company a standout amongst all the rest.
Already credited for pushing the goblin/hobgoblin/orc skum back sixteen miles, and sacking 2 villages, they had earned a Distinguished merit, in the form of a magic object, from the Lords’ treasury.
The plan so far…keep pushing. Show no mercy.
The fort is constructed of sturdy, local wood with walls 9 feet tall. The entire fort is about the size of an American football field. A trench system is currently being dug around the entire fort but is only completed on the northern half. There are two main gates with two arrow towers each placed at the northern and southern gates. Arrow windows are placed about every 75 feet in the palisade, and fold out when in use. There are two smaller entrances in the east and west of the fort…chiefly placed as emergency exits. There is one lookout tower in the center of the fort; it stands 20 feet tall.
Amenities within the fort are:
-field tavern building
-merchant’s caravan (general store)
