Earl Roderick has summoned all men of fighting age to a Weaponstake in Salisbury. Our characters arrived with eager anticipation of being knighted. In the hubbub around the court, we hear much news of saxon raids in Logres’ eastern areas. We desire nothing more than to strike and drive the saxon from our lands.
We were not dissapointed, with Sir Gorthyn, Sir Maelgwyn and Sir Semond now vassals of Earl Roderick of Sarum.
We were fortunate to be placed in the vanguard of the 3000 strong army mustered to drive the Saxon threat from the field. Our characters leaned on their hatred of Saxons to fuel their readiness for battle, channeling their desire for ridding the land of the saxon scourge into their spear expertise. Over several hours of battle, the force that we were attached to sortied 3 times, with Sir Gorthyn and Sir Maelgwyn taking a Saxon Theign captive for later ransom. We did well – but overall the forces of Uther Pendragon were bogged down and failed to rout the Saxons from the field.
