Chapter 5 - Ancient Battlegrounds[]

Defenders of the realm are tasked with defeating King Cruithne who has taken up residence in Caer Caledon in Caledonia .

Pictish Invasion FInish[]

Reports from the front lines indicate that Pictish forces have been depleted by defenders of the three Realms. King Cruithne has instructed his barbarian fighters to make their last stand and the heartless King has ordered All Pictish invaders caught retreating to be summarily put to death.

Scholars from the Realms have determined that without reinforcements, the Picts can last for no more than 4 days until they are entirely vanquished. Once the Pictish forces have been defeated, Elders will be able to close the portal to Caledonia to prevent the highland invaders from returning.
