The Winter War: Command House

Brother Joseph knew in his heart that he was going to die in Brin.

First Floor
     Not only would he be killed, but so would all of the brave soldiers under his command. The undead would eventually overrun the village and their corpses would be animated to serve the Necromancer Lords.

     Consumed with grief, Joseph kneeled at the foot of his bed and prayed. As he did so, tears streamed down his face. “Iridia, I don’t want to die in this cold, miserable village. I don’t want to bury any more of my men. I just want to go home. I miss my family so badly. Please, deliver us from our enemy. I am just so tired, so very tired…”

Second Floor
     The Command House The defenders of Brin use the only intact residence in the village as a command house. Within the cold, drafty home they pray, rest and desperately try to figure out better ways to hold their position. With all twelve defenders using the home as a living space, quarters are quite cramped.

     The first floor is sparsely furnished with a table, four chairs and a wood-burning stove. At night, blankets are rolled out for the footmen and squires to sleep on. A trapdoor in the floor leads to a cellar where the arms, armor and personal effects of their slain comrades are stored. Three bunk beds can be found on the second floor. Because they do the bulk of the fighting,

     Brothers Andrew, Loren and Joseph are afforded bed space. The other three bunks are used by wounded soldiers.
