Smelgar approached the dam.

The stench was now almost unbearable: putrid, rotting flesh.

After looong time battle is on sight. Strong, experienced and well equiped armies have invaded Bosnia. Pechies, Khazars and Byzantium armies lead personally by Protosebastos Smelgar.

No Serbian army attacked. They are fighting like pussies they are, sending all others to slaughter and staying behind to pick all glory they haven't archieved.

Borna was honored to fight against such warriors like Smelgar, Papikaze of Kyoto, Carlos, Dorenn de Almuhin, daughter of his previous comrade on field of battle, and many others.

But then Borna heard horns. They were no Italian, Croatian or Burgundian. Borna recognized Byzantian horns, he heard them so many times before.

Borna walked out of his room. He saw his troops through window, standing proudly with their Italian brothers. Counts Marculius and Emerik were standing in front all of them. Borna walked down and stand in front of them.


"My brothers. There is hard battle waiting for us. We will fight against better trained and experienced troops. Many great faces are waiting for us to come. So lets make their dreams come true. We will probably lose this battle, so Count Marculius will stay inside castle walls to protect our retreat to Dalmatia. I will lead rest of cavalry, General Kristian will lead all infantry and Count Emerik will command archers. Do not lose your courage man! Rematch is sooner that you think. Now, lets show them who we are and what we're made of. FOR HONOR!!!"

Soldiers started to clash their weapons to their shields. Noise they were making was magnificent. Then Borna ordered town gates to open and horns to be blown. Army started their march through town gates and deployed in front of castle. Archers stayed on town walls since there they had better position and advantage.

Borna saw enemy army deploying. He didn't intend to give them chance to do it in peace. His army started to march.

Borna heard Count Emerik ordering fire. Archers were making devastating casualties to enemy so they charged immediately. Borna ordered charge and deployed is cavalry straight in center behind infantry. Armies clashed and fast infantry started to lose. Then he gave signal. Infantry splited on left and right and made center clear. Then Borna charged with his cavalry surprised enemies. Also archers that run out of arrows joined the battle, but soon enough enemy cavalry charged in and battle was lost.

Soldiers started to run to Dalmatia, and Borna rode with what rest of his cavalry below town gates. Marculius and his cavalry joined him. Then they charged on enemy, using hit and run tactic successfully enough to protect soldiers in retreat. Then after no friendly soldier was on sight they started to retreat to Dalmatia also.

There they joined Burgundian forces and took few days to recover and rest...

Nameless was old, very old. Would that be his last battle. He certainly felt the end coming. But he would follow his new Queen into battle. He would not disappoint her. He grabbed his axe and held on to it. He could hardly sit straight on his old battlehorse. He clenched his teet.

he murmured. He looked through the helmet's wholes. A good day to die....

Dorenn was marchin up and down the phalanx of knights. It was early in the morning and the mist was still hanging around. No sun was visible. Clouds of steam evaporated from the nostrils of the horses forming their own little funny phalanx:

Knights of Khazar, Petschenegs and Byzantium. Another cataclysmal battle. The enemy is stubborn and was weak. Yet it seems he just collected his forces right here. I am certain, if we can beat thhem here in their own realm, we will most certainly enforce peace. May be God with you and let the better ones win. But of course, we know, that's us! Go and fight the enemy!

While shouting at the men, she was riding up and down the rows of men who sucked in her words of courage. Grim faces were visible through the harnishes, they would fight and they would be determined to withhold any pressure and not break the shield wall. She looked into faces she long knew. Some people were eager, some looked tired. But they would defend the foe ahead of them.

Someone had turned the river into a charnel house.

Decapitated bodies, some also armless, were wedged into the boughs of the fallen tree, interrupting the river's flow.

Smelgar remembered a past time---the war of Moscow and the Lithuanians---where a single decapitation had rendered the ruler responsible a pariah, and forced him to undertake penance.

The scale of butchery he now beheld outstripped that crime a thousandfold, yet now it was just an act of anonymous cowardice in a dirty war. What was the world coming to?

You have noted Burgundian coalition about your armies defending Serbia and we accepted it.
But Panonia is Croatian core shire which means direct attack on Croatian teritorial independence.
I will say this only once. If your troops don't withdraw from Panonia in next 25 days, your actions will be considered as act of war and will be treated that way.

The rebellion failed. Ban's loyalist army encountered a massive force of Borna's loyalists, they were prepared. Ban's forces stood no chance of victory. News was sent to Ban but too late. He was already celebrating his victory in a nearby Croatian village.

- Hail the new king - the local populace cheered. Celebration was made, drinks were everywhere, pork and chicken were the main meal. Suddenly a rider appeared in the distance, but nobody noticed him because of the music and celebrations.

The rider tried to get to the new "king" Ban, but he was stopped by the local Croatian peasants.

- No horses here, you'll have to go by foot.
- But I have an urgent message for duke Ban.
- Didn't you hear? He's king now!
- I have grave news for him then.

The silence around the rider stopped the celebrations. The others who didn't hear what the rider said quickly stopped what they were doing and started asking questions.

Ban was mildly drunk yet still not enough for him to fall unconscious and sleep. He demanded ale even tough a deep silence arose. Then he got up the best he could, saw the rider and somehow walked to him.

- I'm sure you bring news of my victory rider. - said with a smile on his face.
- I'm afraid duke, word from Borna that his men were victorious in Istria.

A grim face appeared. Ban almost fell down from this word like he was struck by lighting. He grabbed his head with his hands and started yelling.

- What now!? What now?!

Then he turned to Ivan and Sinisa

- Get your horses, we're going for a little walk.

The "walk" was to the border villages, mixed Croatian and Serbians living in harmony, but during this war there were problems. The Croatians and Serbians were fighting. But without any military support from both sides this were only street brawls and fistfights. King Borna ordered that no military should support this.

Ban was determined to do the opposite.

They arrived to the villages, rounded up the Croatians and expelled the Serbians from their homes, burning and looting everything they could find. Even some orthodox churches were allowed to be constructed under Borna's orders and protection. They were now filled with Serbian bodies and burned.

On the whole border there was fire. A warning to those who want to enter these lands again either peacefully or otherwise.

Then Ban got to his own camp with his own soldiers told Ivan and Sinisa to take the troops to Borna and swore allegiance again to him. Then when Ban was alone with his faithful servant, he started writing the letter.

QUOTE:
To King Borna of Croatia

I'm not sorry for what I have done to the Serbians, they deserved it. I'm just sorry for that, that our own people had to suffer for my own ambitions. The Serbians are of no matter, I just kill them all and loot their possessions.

I heard that they want to "judge" me. I'm going to grant their request to kill me. For the sake of peace.

My own life for the peace of several Catholic nations. That is the price of my life.

Your dear rival.

Ban Moroplovac
King of Croatia the rightful one.

*signed and sealed*

ps. be good to my Uskok soldiers, They have been with me even when I was still a young man in my early 20-ies they are good men and pirates, I expect from you to give them a full amnesia and get them back to the battlefield, they don't deserve to be punished because of my ambitions.

It was nice knowing you.


Then Ban gave the letter to his servant and went outside to the Serbian border, he was now walking to his own death...

Borna was sitting in his tent and crying. He was betrayed by his best friend. General Kristian brought him news about victory of Duke's loyalists. Many died, and for what? For some lunatic idea of his best friend. But Borna was wondering. Is that really his best friend? Perhaps horror of war drive him mad, and who knows what other reasons.

But then Kristian brought a letter. Borna opened it and read it. He couldn't believe what he just read so he did it again, and then again untill he knew to sing the letter like a song.

Then he started to write letter to Duke:


QUOTE:

To Ban Moroplovac, Dead Man


My friend, you should be sorry for all those horrors you gave to inocent people. To make things worse, you rebelled against me. But compared to how much lifes were lost in your attempt to over throne me it's nothing, so I forgive you your "ambition" because I can not go over our friendship and all the things you teached me. But you teached me to much.


I also hope you are prepared to fight border guard because I have ordered border to be protected 10 times stronger. Not only because of you, but for mass of enemies in Bosnia and round areas...


But then General Kristian entered with 5 men. Borna imediately recognized Duke in the middle.

Borna stood up and couldn't believe what he see.

"EVERYBODY GET OUT EXCEPT THOSE TWO" and pointed on Kristian and Ban.

"We cathced him while trying to run across border to Bosnia."

"Fine. Now sit. Both of you."

Ban didn't say a word and do as said. Borna could see sorrow and rage in his eyes.

"I recieved your letter Ban. Sinisa didn't arrive with your troops yet. He will be treated like nothing happen and like common soldier.

About your leaving to Serbia, no chance you do it because they won't just kill you, they will torch you, and who knows else, if you really must die then I will kill you. And I will. For all the things you've done to Serbian people and for your rebelion. You have 3 days to say goodbye to whoever you want. And then you will be executed in public. I will personally do it.
I allready know what you will say and I don't want to hear it. I'm sorry you spoiled so many lifes, and our friendship.

Kristian take him. I want 100 man around him all the time, I don't care if he will go and fuck local whore, or say goodbye. I want 100 man around him, and you will be commander of that guard. Now go. Both of you.



They both left, and tears showed in Borna's eyes...

...the sentence was changed. Borna has decided it was better for Ban to die on the battlefield by an unworthy enemies blade than to be hanged, more dishonor that way Ban thought. He was placed on the first line, along other warriors. "The duke is alongside us?" this sentence was on everybody's lips in the Croatian army. Without a horse or personal bodyguards the Duke will fight the dishonorable enemies on the battlefield.

He spent his last two days with his good friend Marculius who was leading the cavalry units. Burgundy and Italy soldiers were also present on the battlefield, side by side they fought against the invaders. On the opposite side of the field we have 2 emperors. Emperor Smelgar of the Eastern Roman Empire and Emperor Ljudislav of the Empire of Serbia, as well as the "King" of Hungary Masterpera. 3 leaders were present on the battlefield which gave their troops big morale. If the emperors were defeated here, it would just show to the whole world that the "Emperor" title does not come with immortality or strength.

The camerlago was present on the Coalition's side. This boosted morale for all of the faithful soldiers of Christ.

The wind started to blow, a thunder was heard in the distance. Panonian peasants were running towards Istria and Steinmark looking for shelter. The brave men of Panonia stood along the Coalition's armies, ready to die to protect their loved ones.

Ban moved two steps further. The soldiers watched as the elderly body of Ban Moroplovac moved with strength and pride. His spirit will never die. He drew his spear, prepared his shield and adjusted his helmet. The heavens started to cry as Ban thought, many innocents will die tonight. He took a deep breath, then his look turned to Ljudislav his arch rival.

- Tonight you die by my spear you bastard! - Ban yelled.

Ljudislav probably didn't hear this taunt. Ban turned around to his soldiers, his friend and allies.

- Prepareeeeee to march! - The sound of a massive army marching was heard, horses were uneasy and in young men's eyes fear was seen.

The enemy as well started moving, a massive cavalry army was moving towards the coalition's, they brought with themselves death and fear as their powerful weapons. Ban had only one, the will to save his lands from certain defeat. He again took a deep breath, made a charge stance and charged to his death...arrows were flying towards the enemy, the silence before the storm...then the arrows hit and screams were heard. Both armies started charging to each other.

This will be a great battle for Panonia once more.

2 Empires with one stick      14.09.2011 23:36:18 --- 3 Years ago  
The charge was fast and strong, the arrows deadly and the screams horrific. Both sides took heavy losses. Croatian peasants slaughtered alongside their brothers in arms. Panonia was free but at what cost...

Ban all bloodied went into the Croatian war tent. Marculius was still standing and very much alive. The morale was high and the men's spirit replenished.

- News from Istria my duke - said a messenger that quietly entered the tent.
- What are they - Answered Marculius
- Saxony's armies are once more standing by us with fresh troops.
- Excellent - Ban replied - their experience in battle shall prove most useful against all odds. And...

Ban was interrupted by another messenger. The boy was clearly exhausted from all the running.

- My lord...King Borna...
- Calm down, soldier give him a drink.

The messenger sat down and drank, then he gathered his will and continued.

- King Borna declares war on Byzantium.
- Took him long enough

Marculius eyed out Ban, he wasn't expecting this kind of an answer. Ban caught that look.

- What is it Marculius? Took him long enough to declare war on the only empires in the known world. Now we're dealing with two of them like we were all this time.
- But that'll be our end for sure! - said Marculius as he hit the table with his fist. - We cannot stand against two empires toe to toe.
- See Marculius, that's why the victory in Panonia was needed. To show the world that a combined effort of several kingdoms and duchies is enough to take down 2 Empires.

Marculius thought for a moment then responded.

- So we're now facing a new enemy with it's own allies.
- Probably, but they can't do much damage, even Smelgar himself the great strategist has failed in his attempt to take over Panonia.
- You're right. - Marculius then signaled his guard to follow him and went outside of the tent.

Ban turned to Borna's messenger.

- Tell Borna this. Two Empires with one stick - and then he pointed at his trusty spear that had delivered the victory for him...
