In the year 499 the Iron Tide of Cornwall reached into old Logres and they set their eyes on Jagent. With an army of peasants, soldiers and workers King Idres besieged the old city of Ilchester. The defender, Count Tudwall, knew that he was outnumbered and closed the walls to get ready for the siege.
But the count of Jagent was not alone, an alliance of neighbors, knowing that Jagent was the last defendable position against the Iron Tide, had mustered an army in the defense of the county. And they marched to Ilchester to break the siege. But the cunning Idres, who had learned from the history of great warlords, built a wall around the city, creating a castle around the castle.
As the knights from Dorsette, Salisbury and Gentian approached the city they realised that they had to storm the walls of the besiegers.
The battle was long, but through the cunning use of fire and determination the Alliance of Locrinus, as they came to be known, had managed to break the siege and free the people of Jagent.
