Somewhere among the sprawling marshes of Nocturnus an Avalonian force is helping the resistance lay siege to a black spire city. Catapults hurl rocks at the attackers and arrows fall like rain. Yet the siege weapons roll on, determine to take back what is rightfully theirs.
Loreos has long utilized heavy cavalry to fight its enemies, none heavier than the feared war elephants. But what could make these ponderous death machines more terrible? Stap an oversized ballistae on their back! Fortifications and armies alike should beware these massive cavalry archers!
A functional Petraria Arcatinus style catapult. The crank at the back winds a string and pulls down the arm, a ratchet keeps it in place, and pushing the lever fires. The ratchet can then be released and the string unwound and the lever hooked back on.
Lord Caminellie drove his cavalry to the gates of the Fortress of Gemeti-Isthar with freshly built ballista and other siege engines. He appeared personally at the front lines with his forces in full support.
