A Message from the Outlands Siege Marshals
Few weapons in the ancient world were as destructive
as ballistas, trebuchets, arbalests, perriers, and other siege engines. These
great weapons were the artillery of their time, capable of hurling massive
boulders, livestock, and flaming pots over and even through enemy
fortifications. Within this Society, our scaled-down weapons outshoot bowmen to
crash through shield walls and penetrate deep into tightly packed enemy
positions. Weapons are destroyed and shields figuratively penetrated by this
awesome firepower positioning them as fantastic tools for disrupting enemy
size and power, these engines make an impression on the general
public and spark wide interest for an organization too often
viewed as a medieval fight club. They also provide a unique and
fun opportunity for Society outreach at schools and pumpkin
chunking events throughout the kingdom.
