Battle of Linden Pool

Octa and Eosa raid the countryside around Malahaut but bypass it to march south against Logres, boasting they will claim Uther’s enchanted sword for Eosa, to match Octa’s magical axe.

Three large large British armies gather to meet the Saxons in Linden Pool. Duke Ulfius of the Vale brings the eastern and southern armies, Duke Gorlois of Cornwall brings the western armies and Uther himself leads the centre and the northern armies.

The battle rages for many hours and thousand dies on the battlefield. In the early hours the knights victory seem obvious and British steel pushes back the Saxon wildmen. But after many hours the battle-hardened saxons manages to turn the tide and the battle seems almost to be lost. But during the last hours of daylight Duke Gorlois of Cornwall manages to personally defeat Eosa the giant and bring him to heel and Sir Arnoullant the Fair brings down Octa. Octas banner is taken by several brave knights from Salisbury. As their heroes are defeated the saxons turn and rout.

The cousins are defeated and sent to Londinium in chains, along with many Saxon hostages.
