Battle Over

Blog Post created by OldBones-Larry on Aug 1, 2018

We have been in battle with these guys for many days now.
After I last wrote you, they decided to try breaking out. We have kept them enclosed with only one direction they could travel without meeting our men.
Slowly we began forcing them towards the ruins. They resisted for many days, but finally they began losing ground.
We pushed them back towards the ruins in a running skirmish. I can't really call it a battle since they never tried attacking.
When we reached the ruins, everything changed though.
When the vipers claimed their first victim, the Nico-baddies began fighting to break free of our trap.
We kept the circle intact and held them in. Slowly we kept pushing them into the ruins.
We then stopped and just kept them trapped in the ruins. Our men encircled the entire ruins and held firm.
We discovered this morning that the vipers had killed every one of our adversaries.
We left them for the desert to claim and are moving towards the nearest oasis. We need rest and refreshment after holding the seige for this long.
Some figs, dates, and cool water will be very welcome. We will stay at the oasis and rest for several days.
Travel safely friends and keep a sharp lookout for traps.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
