Post Reply Kyoshiro Clan: Eastern front
Posted 8/1/11


A direct rout into the town, and from their, towards the Koshiro castle. This battle field is located on a large hill, making battle more difficult for the attackers - The hill serves as a 'Natural Fortress' to help repel attackers.
Posted 8/1/11
Legions of soldiers followed behind Serpenter, their armor gleaming in the moonlight and their Crimson capes adorned with imperial gold, elaborate tapestry woven into each inch of the cloth.
Serpenter sure wasn't secretive about these things - The hundreds of men chanting battle cries, the flag carriers along their flanks beating their drums and waving intense flaming torches, signaling Serpenters approach clearly and vividly.

"Men!" Serpenter addressed, turning dramatically on the spot to face the army.
"As you may well know, we have been sent on what can only be described as a 'Suicide mission'!" His voice addressed the crowd with the confidence expected of a great leader. The army remained silent, even the drummers stopped.
"HOWEVER! We will not be dying tonight! Our flame shall still burn! Tomorrow, and the day after! Our flame shall never burn out!"
"In one swoop, we'll capture the Koshiro clan, plunder their riches, raze their villages, and destroy their armies! We aren't some throw away army! We're the best warriors that the Empire, that Sendai, and that the whole world can produce! Lets show them your flaming spirits~!"

The men let out a loud roar, raising their pikes, swords, axes and halberds into the air. Serpenters golden eyes seemed to burn intensely, as he looked over the wave of enthusiastic soldiers. He grabbed his lance from his back, thrusting it skywards. In that one instant, his power that had been lost since the battle against Daz came flooding back, his red hot aura seemingly illuminating the darkness, his spiked red hair flowing majestically in the warmth of his flaming battle spirit~!
he spun on the spot, his coat spreading outwards in the wind, before regaining its original position, as Serpenter continued ascending the hill to the sound of the drum beat, and the blaze of the infernos.

The soldiers inspired by Serpenter's words as they did the raised the flags and then they blew the battle horn, "yes my lord!!! lets go lets not take any prisoners anything they hold sacred burn to the ground kill every last one of them" as they did cavalry and infantry began to run and charge towards the castle battle cries could be heard as several footsteps of running soldiers this was an omen that only bad thing was about to occur over the land of sendai

Serpenter, enthralled with the mens enthusiasm, joined their advance, breaking into a swift sprint himself, Upon approaching the castle however, he turned to one of his soldiers. "We may need catapults. Get to the engineers, and have them build several catapults, and some battering rams. We'll continue to lay siege our selves, until the weapons arrive."
the solder nodded, giving a stern "Yes, My lord!" before retreating to the back, and making the request. The engineers begun building right away, using a combination of woods, metals and even the earth, to create the siege weapons.

Meanwhile, Serpenters troops used explosives to attack the castle walls, with archers poised and ready to shoot down any enemy archers on sight.

In the castle troops began running up to lord Koshiro though they did not need to explain despite he was in his manor he could feel the earth quaking due to the explosions of the enemy troops he then swiftly nodded as he spoke to the troop "alright get our archer corps at the ready we will advance and rally our opponents at full speed before they have a chance to inflict any real damage" he spoke as the troop the ran away ready to inform others, as they did so not before too long yells of troops began to cry out as they began to charge down from the manor cavalry and archers began firing at the enemy though they too we under fire though yet again retreat was not something the Koshiro army did as they charged down even further attacking the front lines as steel clashed with the opposing armies steel, innocent cries of villagers being either slaughtered or worrying for their lives as they tried to scramble even the sight of the Koshiro army wasnt enough to make their minds at easy as the war had only just began like the first droplet in a never ending sea of blood.

Serpenter drew his sword, Impaling it through the stomach of a Koshiro soldier from behind.
"Men! Watch your backs!" he said, side stepping an arrow, and catching it by the shaft. "But also watch each others backs! Don't get cut down by these wannabe warriors!"

It seemed the enemy had cavalry, as well as archers. They were well prepared. The commanders passed out orders to their legions, reinforcing their defense, whilst creating a powerful offense, All of the pikes and halberds ready to cut down the cavalries, whilst the archers rained arrows at intervals, and shielded each other in between the bursts.

As the cavalry made their return the soldiers stepped forwards, in one precise movement, creating walls of spikes from Halberds, spears, pikes and other pole arms.

Meanwhile, the mechanics constructed their weapons further down the hill. Progress was going well - It seemed as though it wouldn't take much longer to have the Catapults ready.

An imperial soldier cut down a koshiro clan member, as doing so a light in a near by bust caught his eye. The soldier aproached the bush the red flicker shimering off his armour he couldn't help but think what it might be, a ruby?, a broach? mayby even a rare weapon as all these possibiltys wizzed around his mind the bush exploded in a crimson aura. The soldiers group turned to the sound of their comrade screaming but when they looked just one of their own was there, cape flailing in the wind behind him and blood dripping down the shiny armour that adorned his chest "I got that bastard... MUHUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" cackled what seemed to be the Imperial Soldier.

In response to these scream, the commander of the unit turned to face the bloodied Imperial knight.
"What is it soldier?" He asked, in a tone expectant of a battle hardened military warrior. His hand clutched the hilt of his sword, unsure of what happened, though the soldier still appeared to be alive.
"Have you sighted enemies?" his eyes shifted from side to side, examining the battlefield.

"I got this one!" said the enthusiastic soldier hoisting a stripped down man into the air, "His armour seem to have gone missing though, i think i oblitirated them!....sir!" continued the happy warrior. Throwing the corpse to the ground, the soldier closed the visor of his helmet as he got closer to his commander. "Tell me.... commander..... who shall i mame next!!!"

"Heh, you sound eager--" Before he could finish, a messenger jogged up to him, saluted, and delivered a message.
"From the engineer team, Sir: We're unable to complete the catapult and Battering rams right now, due to attackers. Our team is weakened, and we don't know how much time we have left. Please defend immediately!" he messenger gave a firm salute before jogging off again.
As if by magic (which it was probably related to) the grassy hill burst into flames, around where Serpenter was located. A sure sign of his anger, but he too was pinned down by the enemy right now.

The engineer team was shielded from all sides, in a sort of turtle shell formation. Even the arrows couldn't get through, though against the barrage of cavalry swords and arrows raining down, they wouldn't last long.
"Men! Let us defend the Engineers, and hasten our victory!" the commander roared, rallying his troops.

The soldier clearly Shinos clenched his fist! Finally after strolling through this land for several days the time where he could be part of a real battle was at hand! Tingles shivered down his demonic spine as he thought of the gore filled battle to come. He kneeled down and clasped a spear from the floor, he needed to make an impression on his new commander and thus needed to kill as many as possible! Roaring with joy Shinos charged into battle with his commander.

The commander initiated the enemy, with a spectacular combination of quick draw slashes, and well timed throws, impaling each man he downed through the throat with his blade. He was well versed in Iaido style techniques, as well as grappling, focusing on downing and finishing his kills swiftly and cleanly. The rest of his solders also joined in. Their were around 50 men in total, some with their blades locked up with Koshiro warriors, others cutting down fighters, though it seemed they were capable, as none were even wounded yet - Until suddenly, an arrow, about four foot long impaled through one of the soldiers.

"C-c-comaneder! They got him! They killed--" Before he could finish, three arrows were fired through him, the first through his back, causing him to stagger in pain, before a second one removed him arm. Finally, the third arrow impaled his skull, fetching his head straight off - The commander stepped aside, the arrow sailing past, and embedding into the ground.

"Men, we're under heavy fire! We must eliminate the archers!" He commanded, as arrows showered them. In minutes, the number of troops had decreased by half, leaving them with barely 20 capable soldiers. The soldiers who focused on blocking arrows were cut down by the Koshiro warriors, whilst the warriors who tried to eliminate the were shot down. It was a massacre. The Koshiro clan really lived up to its name.

The battle seemed to be going not so well for seperenter's troops with the Koshiro archers wiping out many of the troops as Tenkai then sighed he had already summoned up some of the troops from the imperial army to help out Serpenter as he then turned to them "alright men whatever happens in that battle field so them fear" he grin and then laughed as he then spoke to them one again "I would join you on the battlefield but I cannot just yet but perhaps soon I may be able to" as he then looked over at the chaos and destruction his blood beginning to pump at the sight of destruction he then looked over at the general clearly angry his flaming spirit had burnt all around him he was looking frustrated as this did not seem to go to plan as Tenkai faced his troops once again "by the way men you now work for serpenter or at least thats what the enemy is to believe...obey his command and make the imperial army proud" as that a roar of men that cried out in Tenkai's name as they charged coming to serpenters aid from behind much to what would be the suprised aid of the other commander of the army as Tenkai sighed "my presence is required else where dont screw up with my men serpenter" he muttered under his breath as with a clap of his hands he dissapeared in green smoke..just then the Koshiro army was once again put under pressure but the soldiers tried to continue to attack Lord Koshiro looked on from the manor.

The war raged on. Whilst Serpenters men dwindled, due to being unexperienced, the soldiers under Tenkai were much better trained. With techniques even Serpenter was unaware of, they dealt with the threat of the archers in a flash, ripping them limb from limb in a brutal storm of blades and blood.
The time brought by the success of the elite soldiers was enough for the engineers to finish the siege weaponry, and finally, the rams were delivered to the eastern gates of the Koshiro keep. Catapults launched volleys of flaming earth and wood over the walls, whilst the rams were aligned.

Charge!

In that instant, the two rams struck, with a sickening crack. The gates, forced inwards by the weight of the weapons looked as if their hinges had been destroyed for a moment, though they held firm... For now.

The rams pulled back, once again, defended by the relentless assault of the catapults.
"This is it me! Now! We storm the castle!" Serpenter roared over the sound of the battle.
The rams charged forwards again, this time, the gates did not hold their shape, and were sent flying, along with portions of the wall that the gates were attached to.
"Now, we take Koshiro!" Serpenter roared with enthusiasm, the remaining soldiers charging into the castle.

Daz began to get ready for the battle that he was helping lead the army for the first time in a major battle, though he had no time to be nervous as his troops and himself felt the tremors of the battering rams charging through into the castle this was it. He then equipped himself with his weapons and put on his red battle armor as he did so he could hear the screams of people dying he then closed his eyes for a second blocking everything out as he clenched his fists "I cannot wait for Soren to make a battle plan it's too late I cant allow any other of my own soldiers of the Koshiro clan to die anymore, they have families...its true what lord Koshiro once told me...a death of even a single soldier is like a dagger in the heart of sendai but more importantly the clan...he was right...my heart aches loudly for the fallen....I feel my soul burning with passion to avenge their defeat i will not let their sacrifices for our lord and for me be in vain i will not let another soldier die!" he spoke as he then prepared his horse as he hopped on it "Soldiers of Koshiro your deaths will not be for nothing...Men! secure the area do not hold back....let the enemy feel the claws of the koshiro clan bear your fangs and fear not the consequences of biting into them we must stand our ground not matter what but as long as we believe in our strengths and lord Koshiro we cannot fail! We welcome attacks....Now Charge!!!" Daz bellowed out as the main door opened and soldiers flooded out as Daz rode his horse blasting forwards at full speed none handed as his hands drew out two swords as he did do he then began to slash away hacking and slashing at enemies as he rode by his sword sliced threw the enemies bodies ripping their flesh apart as he threw around his strength as he used his horse as his advantage as he horse began to speed across the castle grounds battle roars of soldiers could be heard from behind him as he lead the charge of the rear soldiers his attacks relentless
