Campaign of the Month: August 2016
Oath of Crows
Ambush at Eburacum
On the road to Eburacum, as night falls, the entire army is ambushed by Saxons on the march. Attacked from all sides it is cut to pieces, knights gathering in knots of steel around their lords and eventually punching their way free. Most footmen, many squires and many knights perish.
The Bannersons fight like cornered wolves, despite their inexperience and youth they beath back several waves of Saxons and manage to defend the wagon with the women until King Uther breaks out of the ambush, drawing many attacking Saxons after him. This creates an opening where they can fight their way out as well. Melkin is gravely wounded, taking a spear through the lung. Anwyn nearly dies as she falls off her horse and is saved by Cadrys squire, who is then slain by Saxons.
Logres mounted troops outpace the howling Saxons, but both footmen and supplies are lost.
