Daggerfall Covenant (Breton)
Alator looked up on the castle of Chorrol, the city that the Covenant had been assaulting for hours now. The walls had been taken and now the Covenant were pushing back the Imperials towards the castle. Alator and the men under his command was Close to the castle now, in a few minutes they would be at its gates.

Alator raised his hand and in it blue flames ignited and flew forward towards an Imperial swordsman. The Soldiers screamed as the flames started consuming him, an Imperial with a mace charged, only to be stopped by Requeis, a wizard of the Council and a monster hunter. Requies drove a blade right through the Imperials chest and after he had pulled it our, finished him with a thunderbolt. They had taken some moderate losses and were several hundred now that assaulted the poorly trained and equipped Imperial force that were sent from the castle in an effort to stop the Covenant. Though the Covenant were only delayed. They were cutting through the Imperials lines and shattering them.

Alator gave an Imperial commander a Mighty whack in his face with his Heavy oaken staff. He felt something break under the weight of the staff and the commander let out a curse. Alator grabbed his longsword and drove it through the Imperial, a few Imperials cut down two Orcs and started running towards him, too outnumbered to fight them in meele, he turned to his old friend, magic. He raised but his hands and summoned a freezing wind of frost that flew from his fingertips right at the Imperials, it pushed them back and the Imperials that was closest to Alator did not rise again. The others atleast tried to get up, though they were too slow. Several Covenant men ran towards them with battlescries and started killing them as they was getting up. An Orc who had a warhammer swinged it so hard into an Imperials chest that the warhammer almost Went through him. Alator raised an arm as blood flew in all directions. A gust of wind came as a stone sent by a catapult on the castle walls came flying. And a crash and screams as it hit the ground and splintered.

They're killing their own men... Alator thought with disgust as he saw that the stone had crushed several Imperials and the splinters when it broke had injured and killed many more. Alator rasied his coice to a cry "For Emeric!" his men answered with the same cries and they charged at the Imperials who broke. Alator sent a thunderbolt in the chest at an Imperial with a spear that didnt retreat. The Lightning burnt right through him and killed him in an instant. To his left he saw both Theodyne and Mordynak bringing down Imperials with elemental magic. A few of the Soldiers slipped on the cobblestones that ran wet and red with blood. The first light of the dawn appeared as the morning sun raised itself over a pleasant wooden house. Though it was also now when you could see the slaughter that had been performed at the streets of the city. Corpses lay littered everywere and more than half of the cobblestones were red of blood. Several houses was also on fire as the Covenant men reached the castle gates, though they did not open for the retreating Imperials. Whom were now trapped. Alator shouted "Covenant men halt! Surrender Imperials, you do not have to die for the unjust tyrants of the Tharn family!" many Imperials threw down their weapons and ran away with the remaining Imperials shouting taunts and insults at them. Alator said "Very well... finish them." in an instant dozens of spells were fired the Imperials. Alator sent out a wave of fire at them, in the matter of a few seconds, their tight formation had proved to be their doom as only corpses remained of the around fifty men that had been at the gates during the start of the battle. Alator sighed of the waste that this was and his grip tightened against his staff when he thought of how cruel the Tharns was to sacrifice thousands to keep their Power when all they did was to abuse it.

But he had a duty to do and said "Bring the battering ram!" with cheers the Covenant men moved aside as the battering ram appeared from the mass of men. It was oak tipped with iron and carrised by twelve strong warriors, Arrows started flying at the Covenant men more more intensively as the Imperials saw the ram. The Covenants answered with Arrows and spells. The men with the ran reached the gate and started swinging it. Covenant men ran forward to help them, at the fifth swing the gate started to crack, at the tenth it started started leaning backwards, and at the thirteenth the gate broke with a loud crack and for a second the way into the castle was covered in dust. Then the attackers started running into the building, Alator came in not very far after the first, the around fifty men that had been in the hall at the gate to defend had already been killed. Alator shouted "Search all the rooms and destroy the last defence!" the most of the Council members departed with the Soldiers that Went to search the rooms, Alators and the fifty men that remained with him were the ones that would capture the throne room. With long strides Alator led them towards the door were the throne was. As Dular pushed open tha door they found more than a dozen Imperials waiting for them, Alator felt the sudden Cold touch of fear, not for the Soldiers but for the mage in black robes that were doing a ritaul of some kind over several corpses. He saw that the mage tried to bring them back to Life, wich couldnt be let to happen. Alator shouted to Requies "Come with me!" as the Covenant men engaged the Imperials in battle. Alator flunged aside two Imperials with mysticism, and lept past the battle with Requies at his side. As soon as Alator had free sight he grabbed the mage with Telenekis and threw him as hard as he could into the wall two dozen feet behind him. Alator grunted as the spell consumed magicka, he would need a good nights rest to regain all tat he had lost during the siege. The Count of Chorrol that sat in thr throne tried to make a run for it but Requies ran into him and tackled him down and put his blade at the count's throat and said grinning "Please holds still, a blade can so easily be misplaced..."

Alator looked behind him as an Imperial drove a spear through a Breton only to be cut down after a few second, the remaining Imperials saw what Alator and Requies had done and threw down their weapons and yielded. Alator said with a Little smile "It appears like the siege of Chorrol is over, though this is only the beginning...".



I wasnt very happy with this one... but now is when things get started, I have several plans for an Epic storyline leading up to the events of Teso :)

Nice story again Alator :)

I like how you mention the Tharn family, I find that not many people take into account that it's the Tharn's controlling the Imperials. I think the ending was rather "abrupt" for lack of a better word, I think it could be improved upon a little like continue on a little bit after the siege such as Alator regrouping his men and walking around the city for a moment contemplating stuff but I like his words at the end.

Well that will come in the next part, then he helps the Covenant to crush the last resistance and walks around to see all the harms that has been inflicted on the city... and a certain thing from the past unravels for him and he realises that this will be larger than he thought.... :)

Lets just say that the antanogist is powerful enough to make Alator nervous... :)
