The East Fortifications of Grenarth hold

By:

We charged their walls but the defenses held us off, hidden bunkers sprang out of nowhere and turrets wreaked havoc on our forces. Gun pits blasted our army to pieces and we pulled back a shell came out of the sky and destroyed several siege towers, we where finished.


 

The main feature of these defenses is the ability to cause massive amounts of damage with few defenders, the first line of defense is the five camouflaged bunkers placed at strategic locations in front of the walls, these bunkers have mounted cannon, preferably AX-43s these cannons rip through enemy troops and can destroy siege vehicles if a concentrated attack is possible. These bunkers are best used by dwarfs who can utilize the small tunnels connecting the bunkers to the second line of defense, the trenches. The trenches have 4 gun emplacements and two gun pits, the total number of people in a full crew for the trenches is about 30, 5 in each gun pit, 3 in each gun emplacement and 8 to carry shells where ever they are needed. The gun pits are manned by 5 soldiers carrying DC-12 infantry guns, each gun pit also has 10,000 shells for the DC-12s. The gun emplacements have HX-59 heavy cannon, ideal for taking out flying creatures and siege vehicles. These cannon require 3 pople to operate, one aiming while the other two load the 50-pound shells into the cannon, shells are kept about 20 feet down the trenches to minimize damage from explosions. If the trenches fall to the enemy, which is extremely unlikely then the final line of defense sets in: the walls. The walls tower nearly 100 feet straight up, they are made of granite and are about 8 feet thick. There are many arrow slits lining the walls along with an alcove for a XN-201 Heavy Artillery the XN focuses on destroying groups of enemies or siege towers. At the top of the wall there are mounted AX-51s, mostly focused of destroying flyer's but if the enemy gets too close they can take a few down before they get to the gates. Only one army has ever conquered these walls, and they only did it by attacking from a mile away with XM-205 siege cannons.

And we begin with the questions:

1. The setting is not explained, we have what sound like very advanced guns and such taking on siege technology that is several hundred years old.

2. A 100 foot tall wall is going to be much much more than 8 feet thick, especially if it is a defensive structure.

3. What is the AX-43, why is it ideally used, and not standard equipment? Is this type of gun frequently being pulled and used other places?

4.What is a DC-12 infantry gun?

5. What is an HX-59 gun? Sounds like a flak or AA weapon, and BTW 50 lbs is a really big bullet.

6. What is a XN-201 Heavy Artillery?

7. What is an AX-51?

8. What is an XM-205 Siege Cannon?

These are a lot of questions, but as the submission is, it feels like a lot of letters and numbers thrown together and pastiched onto a simple fort. Historically firearms didnt start acquiring alphanumeric nomenclature until mass production, and many were simply known by manufacturer and the diameter of the round they fired. Artillery and heavier guns are generally notated not by manufacturer or a market name, but rather than the diameter of their round given in milimeters.

The idea is good, but I will hold off on voting until I like the idea's execution.

There is potential here, but it needs a lot of work to bring that potential out.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
