December 19, 1020

The imperial occupation of land of Battania continued to deplete the already impoverished treasury of the Calradic Empire from the last civil war. The recent attempt to assassinate the Emperor had failed, and dozens of senators were executed. The Calradic Empire of continued to sink into a state of deep decline. As a result, another attempt to subjugate Battania turned into a failure for the Empire. On December 13, 1020, the imperial legions were ordered to leave the Druimmor lands.

On a cold December morning, the gates of Druimmor Castle opened with a sharp squeak. On its march, the imperial army, to the sound of the drum, left the foreign land and moved south, back to the Empire. Behind them, they left the great Battanian fortress, which they had to siege with such a struggle, and now they had to leave it. This castle was their last stop with a warm hearth, nourishing food and solid walls, before meeting the harsh winter of Battania and the dense forests of Druimmor.

The first to leave the gate were the cataphracts led by stratilates Andronicus. Being ridden on large thoroughbred horses, carefully groomed, covered with the top with popon and various kinds of armor, they demonstrated the Imperial army's greatness. The riders themselves were dressed in lamellar armour, and their heads were crowned with flamboyant helmets with gilding. In their hands, they carried long cavalry peaks along with purple shields, which were decorated with imperial heraldry. And although preferences in weapons were different, almost each of them owned a skillfully made blade of Damascus steel, captured in the long campaigns against Aserai, which once again demonstrated the nobility and grandeur of the imperial army. One hearse attack could crush any formation, leaving behind piles of dead and trampled bodies.

The cataphracts were followed by legionaries, the best infantrymen of the Empire, famous for their excellent discipline. Dressed entirely in collar, with occasional lamellar breastplates, they were not inferior to the cataphracts in greatness, although they were armed in a more practical and simple maner. But with each passing year, the number of legionaries became smaller. The natives of the Empire, from whom legionnaires were recruited, preferred entrepreneurship over military service.

The new core of the imperial army - mercenaries, from the farthest corners of Calradia, and light shooters, the basis for which were peasants and slaves, acting as support and cannon fodder.

The army was moving farther and farther away from the castle, deeper and deeper into the thick of the forest. Marching along the path, the imperial army was surrounded by high tree tops, and only sometimes in the distance one could hear a hawk's voice, as if he was warning of trouble, diluting the monotonous noise of snorting horses, carts and marching column of foot soldiers. People, who knew this area, could distinguish the barely visible shape of deer in the thickets of dense forest, but they quickly hid, afraid of uninvited guests.

Andronicus himself, was unobtrusive and very dissatisfied with the retreat. His horse, named 'Ferocious', walked reluctantly with his head down, as if transmitting the mood of his master. Andronicus Legion suffered great losses throughout the war against Battania, and recently arrived recruits hadn't yet had time to settle down, and now they all faced a long and dangerous transition, for which they were not yet ready. The sun was already approaching sunset, as a sudden arrow piersed the breastplate of the standart-bearer behind Andronikh. The dying horseman pushed the banner into the ground with his last strength, and at that moment the battle cry of the Battanian horn was heard from the forest. The battle was inevitable.
