The Square Of Heroes


This great square lies a few feet below the level of the surrounding streets. A place of where emotions run high; a place of both awe, and despair.

In the capitol city of the northern kingdom, Ak-Var; the City of Knights, exists the Square of Heroes. This square is surrounded by life sized statues of the kingdom’s bravest and most valiant champions. During the majority of the year it is used as a place where the city’s finest troops conduct their drills and carry out their parades. Once a year during the winter months wizards of the White Order create a large temple of ice, where the Carnival de Culture takes place.

The Square is currently being restored after being defaced, probably by the widows of young soldiers.

A good 100 word sub though I would have liked an explanation on what the Carnival de Culture is actually about.

Thanks Moonlake. The 100 Word Challenges that I'm doing at the moment are to get back into writing, a little each day, these 3 that I've submitted today have been done over the weekend and this is the first chance I've had to submit them.

I am primarily using these to supplement my world building. I'll add it to my list.

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
