The Russian Revenge
I've dissed Scotland in the Dukes Speech if your Scottish miss the speech.
A stormy day began at dawn for Grand Duke Ysevold, he woke from a restless night tired and grumpy, his advisor stated it was a bad day to attack but the supplies were running low.
The Grand Duke argued with his advisor till mid day until his advisor gave up, Ysevold was tired and grumpy and wasn't going to give up.
"Now Mr. Slatovich, before I sack you and have your head lopped off for treason, will you agree we have no supplies" shouted Ysevold
"Yes," agreed Slatovich "We have no supplies, but it will rain soon and if we cant see the castle we might as well attack in the wrong direction"
"Off with your head!" And with that Grand Duke Ysevold to his broad sword and swiped at Slatovich "And I want a new Advisor! By tomorrow. Or off with his head..."
Later that day the Duke made a daring speech which would raise or lower morale in the camp "Win or you die! If you lose and survive you'll be exiled to a place with such awful people who eat sheep stomach! This place is called... Scotland!"
"Sire! Is that wise, they say they force you to die or eat haggis with a dessert of fried Mars bars! This would be awful for Russians." Shouted a Russian soldier
"It will make them win" said Ysevold sternly.
With that the Duke screamed Attack! "Watch for Archers!"
But the sly Kievan Rus still slaughtered many a man.
As the true Russian reached the walls the battle commenced.
The battle was fierce and men of both nations died, but for a good cause.
The battle was even until the Duke charged
His Horses charged straight through until he was at the back, then charged into occupied Spearmen and unarmed archers.
The battle took its toll until a victory was achieved.
But with masses of bodies,
and slug fests.
This was a great win, and a foothold in modern day Russia the battle for glory was turning
