This is the living history of Daggerbite, a Dwarven colony settled by The Buff Flags. The walls glitter with images of Giant Magpies. The Magpies are being eaten.

SIEGE: The Onslaught of Razors (Late Spring 254)

Part of The War of Traps

By a stroke of luck, this siege occured at the same time as an elf (spit) merchant caravan. After first locking down the fort, the dwarves of Daggerbite were just terribly dismayed to realise the elves were locked outside the security gate in the path of the oncoming goblinoids..

A short but very bloody carnage ensued whereby the goblins slaughtered the elves and their attendant donkeys very quickly. Meanwhile our marksdwarves of X Squad maneuvered along the ramparts into position above the slaughter.

A shooting gallery ensued. Wounded goblins tried to drag themselves away from the carnage, crawling through the elf and donkey remains whilst X Squad, angry at the loss of their brother Crafttemp, poured on the fire from above without mercy.

The goblins tried to move and hide behind the bulwark of the security gate - X Squad simply re-maneuvered into a new position and continued the murder. 

The final butchers bill? 2 goblins slain for the loss of one Daggerbite dog. This also marks our first successful trade with the elves!

From the annals of history:

254 Late Spring - The Onslaught of Razors
Led by the goblin Zom Growlcruel. He led 16 goblins, 2 of whom were slain.
Marksdwarf Dodok Worktactics proved his worth on the field, slaying both of the enemies killed.
The only dwarven loss was a dog, cut down by Zom Growlcruels copper great axe.
A number of elf traders were slain during this battle.
