    • Sorry about the slow progress. I've had a ridiculous 2 weeks at work. Working on finding new employment at this point with all the crap that's coming down the pipe.

      There will be a final segment of the current battle, and at least 1 more segment of the ongoing siege stuff, then we'll move on.

      • Luther Konig -

        And I stood and watched that terrible carnage unfold across the field, as the rolled tent barrier was turned red with the blood of the men fighting for it.

        On the Hamburgher Left, the swordsmen were pushed back, and withdrew from the combat as their numbers were too few to press the issue.

        In the center the melee reached a fever pitch, as the routing pikemen inspired the Burgundians to press the assault once more. There the lines were held with the aid of the full weight of Hamburg's crossbowmen, fighting in the gutter, so to speak, of the wall with every device and object imaginable. The slacking of fire gave the Burgundians a much needed respite, and yet more men pressed into the fray.

        On the Hamburgher's far right, I witnessed a glorious charge of knight and commoner, as the Hamburgher light cavalry and knights, inspired by the charge of the King Himself, drove into the Burgundian light cavalry. Their charge was irresistable, and the Burgundian light, already reaching their last wits, could only flee, scattering across the field with many men in pursuit.

        Back on the left, the glaivemen pitched into the main fight, and started to roll up the center of the Hamburgher line, crossbows and daggers being nigh useless in close combat against the heavy bladed staffs.

        And then on the near right, the serried ranks of the Golden Band and the elite macemen of Hamburg fell upon that flank which had withstood so much. The glaives and maces rose and fell as one, and few withstood the onslaught. This cracked the Burgundian lines, and from it, a deluge of men poured away from the battle, hurling aside weapons and shields and armors, and running onto the beach and even into the water to escape. But no boats abounded, and it was most of an hour before the King was able to control his men from the slaughter, and take the surrender of the survivors.

        The next day, parties trickled in from the cavalry pursuit, one having captured a squire of Burgundy that appeared to be the commander of the host, the other having run the shattered Burgundian light cavalry into the ground where only a few survivors remained to flee.

            My Grand Duke, I woulst not worry overmuch about these Burgundians. Most have surrendered, and what few have fled might not trouble anyone.

            • And with that, Turn 3, is, at last, at an end.

              Turn 4 stuff will get sent out tonight. There is already one battle pre-ordained to occur for turn 4, and there's nothing that can be done to stop that one. Otherwise, it's all wide open.

              Remember, only the first part of turn 4 will be decent weather, the latter part of the turn will get progressively colder and more miserable. Also note that the seas will become difficult to navigate at the ending of the turn.

                    We're all really curious to see how you plan to pull that off.

                      • Karl Serig, King of Hamburg looked around the camp. Everywhere he saw signs of a hard won fight. Men wounded, armour rent, but also smiles and relief.

                        Hamburg's duty to an ally was complete and now his men could return to their families in Hamburg and prepare for winter.

                        Only one thing remained.

                        'Guard, bring in this squire Jacques, the leader of this band.'.

                        A young man was escorted into the pavillion, tall and well-favoured though somewhat battered from the fight. A courtly though short bow and a soft spoken, 'Your Majesty? echoed through the tent.

                        Karl Serig looked at the squire and spoke one word 'Kneel'.

                        Jacques eyes widened and he gulped involuntarily as he dropped to his knees.

                        The King reached behind him and grasped a sword, freshly cleaned from battle.

                        'Jacques, your master the Marquess of Burgundy brought you here to our allies lands on a fools errand. In that time he threatened my Christian city of Hamburg, ravaged the lands of christian Hannover with no cause and attacked a peaceful nation who helped ensure a treaty in the north.

                        Your master is a bad man-at-arms and not an honourable lord.

                        You however, Jacques, fought well and honourably and indeed above your station. And while my duty means I must punish your lord for his actions, duty also calls on me to reward prowess and chivalry.

                        Thus, in my own right as King of Hamburg, I make you Knight.'

                        Thus speaking Karl Serig place his sword on the should of the newly made knight. Then raising him up he embraced him as one gentleman of arms to another and sent him out to feast with those of his knights who were present.

                          And on the dawning of the day I saw sails on the horizon making for Dune, and sails sallied forth from Helgoland to challenge. The battle of Dune Strait had opened its first chapter.
