Autumn’s cool winds bear forth the cruel men of the north in their long ships, inaugurating dark centuries of wolves and wind, winter and despair. Bright banners are raised on high, to flutter bravely before the onslaught of the north’s dark fury. Knights and warriors, champions of renown rally under the banners of chieftains and kings, to unsheath glittering and remorseless steel. One last chance to wrest everlasting glory and fame in defense of hearth and home, or go down forever in appalling defeat against barbarism’s insurmountable, surging tides of war.
ABOUT THE REAL BATTLE OF BADON HILL:
The Battle of Badon (Latin: bellum Badonis, Latin: Obsessio Montis Badonici), also known as the Battle of Badon Hill or Mount Badon (Latin: bellum in monte Badonis; Modern Welsh: Mynydd Baddon), is a battle thought to have occurred between a force of Britons and an Anglo-Saxon war band in the late 5th or early 6th century. Chiefly known today for the supposed involvement of King Arthur, it is credited in medieval British and Welsh sources as a major political and military event but seems to have passed unremarked in the Anglo-Saxon histories. Because of the limited number of sources, there is no certainty about the date, location, or details of the fighting.
