Osgiliath

Post  Yrobryn on Tue Jun 09, 2009 12:51 pm

Osgiliath was a city on the river Anduin. It was the old capital city of Gondor.
Founded by Elendil and his sons at the end of the Second Age, Osgiliath straddled the Great River Anduin at a point approximately half way between the cities of Minas Anor to the west and Minas Ithil (Morgul) to the east. For over a thousand years, Osgiliath was the capital of Gondor, as well as its largest and most important city. The beginning of the city's decline came in the 15th century, when in T.A. 1437 it was sacked and burned, after a siege, by the rebel Castamir's forces during the Kin-strife. The Great Plague of T.A. 1636 led to further depopulation, and the city began to fall into ruin; the capital was moved to the more secure Minas Anor. Over the next few hundred years, Gondor endured many military defeats east of the Anduin, especially the fall of Minas Ithil in 2002. Osgiliath became vulnerable to attack and was widely believed to be haunted, as its population continued to shrink. Osgiliath was finally abandoned by the remaining civilian population after being captured (temporarily) by Orcs in the 25th century.
Over the centuries leading up to the War of the Ring, the western part of the ruined city was under the control of Gondor, and was at times provided with a military garrison as a means of defending the crossing of the Anduin. The eastern part, with Ithilien, was disputed territory, under Gondor's control for most of the rule of Denethor II, but occupied by Sauron's forces just before the War.
When, during the War, Sauron launched a full-scale invasion of Gondor west of the Anduin, Osgiliath eventually fell to his forces, but was reclaimed by Gondor after Sauron's ultimate defeat a few weeks later.
After the destruction of the One Ring, Osgiliath was rebuilt, but it never became as great as it once was. Minas Tirith remained the capital and King's city.

Post  Yrobryn on Wed Jul 01, 2009 8:58 am

All of a sudden 20 0rc warriors with swords and spears enter the cenario from the oposite position. On the head of the hordes was a cave troll.
The orcs with spear position themselves on the front, making a defensive line against Gondorian knights.

Shoot at the lancers! Cavalary charge after the spearman fall! He continued
Tower guards! carve your spears on that cave troll as soon as you can after the cavalry charge! he finished "the shouting"

Daëron, my friend, help with the troll. he said to Daëron just before turning to Finwe and: My elf friend, take care of those archers with your army Yrobryn asked the mirkwood elf immediatly when around 40 orc archers emerged from the buildings windows and tops

After the troll killed the archers, more orcs with swords appear from the front and the sides. The troll killed some of them, but he could not take much more damage and died, Daëron had twenty orcs in front of him, he approaches them, puts his sword in the holder, touched the orcs with the staff and did a lightning that shot the orc back, pushing him against other orcs.

Daëron took his sword again.

Attack! shouted Daëron very loud.

The tower guards started attacking the orcs coming from the sides and Daëron from the front, he started running to the middle of the orcs and while running he was hitting them with the staff and the sword. When he got surrounded, he stoped, looked at them, touched one of them and very fast he did a telekinesis that allowed him to throw the orc.

We need archers!
