Blade Maidens: The Hunt – 09
Two score from Lady Beckett’s forces, five mounted.
Captain Lochland sustained a broken leg falling from the ramparts.
Fifteen from Hardenwall’s reserves.
Two mercenary companies.
Three dozen horses (stolen or killed).
One battering ram.
As a side note, lord, one of the companies had two survivors. They were found surrounded by a ring of rebel corpses and their fellow companymen within the inner wall. One has since succumbed to his injuries but the remaining mercenary’s story has begun spreading amongst the men. I would suggest giving her a small bonus for her bravery and quietly ensure she is miles away by morning lest her tale overshadow our victory. Twenty gold should suffice.
