The siege has been fought for several months with the tide turning on a daily basis. Both sides have taken heavy losses, but the attackers still outnumber the defenders 2 to 1. A mighty trebuchet has recently been constructed by the attackers to assist them in breaking down the walls and reining terror upon those within the castle. In addition, a siege tower has been built which virtually guarantees that the castle walls will be breached. Fortunately for the defenders of the castle, help is in sight.
