... is very scientifical.
With the defeat and presumed death of the expeditionary force from Aelmere, the proper army of the empire sails south. The army has taken to the sea and created an artificial landing, then walked to the rebellious city, and have recently reached the walls of Rogue's Hearth. The city is expected to capitulate within days, if not hours. Timber has been brought from the recent war against the forest south of Sanardu, and construction of a siege camp is already underway. The engines of war tower over the tents.
The first bombardment is to commence at dawn.
OOC: The event is taking place at 6pm EST tommorow (the 11th). The actual siege camp is going to be ported into the main world a few hours beforehand, and people who would be at the siege, are welcomed to roleplay there. The event is going to end (that is, people are free to go roleplay at places inside the siege camp - have as much ambient roleplay at any time before then as you want) some time in the afternoon (again going off EST time) on monday. It's going to end shortly after the final siege, after we spend awhile practicing and planning for the final assault, probably endure salleys fro the defending rebels, and roleplay out blowing it to smithereens with catapults.
