Louie le Brickvalier, indeed, made it to his army before they arrived at the Fortress of Circardia. When the army could see the fortress in plain sight, the soldiers were awed by the majestic stronghold that was before their very eyes. The gates of the fortress were built on the side of a mountain that was surrounded by a body of water. This water provided for a perfect moat. Once the soldiers reached the bridge, Louie le Brickvalier beckoned for them to dismount. While the army walked on the bridge to the gate, Louie gave them a brief history of the fortress before their eyes.
"Lads, Circardia is one of the last remaining ancient strongholds in northern Garheim. The fortress is inside the mountain and there are numerous of passage ways in it. Lord Beonic requested me, among other commanders, to unite here due to it being too for north for the Queen's men to get to."
Louie stopped. He pulled his sword- which led to his soldiers pulling there swords after him. They saw the same thing he did.
"Outlaws! What are they doing here? I am certain that there is an explanation for this!"
When they reached the gate, Louie le Brickvalier when up front and spoke to the guard.
"I am Louie le Brickvalier, loyal citizen of Garheim and knight of the Jarl. I have been requested to assemble here by Lord Beonic."
"Welcome! I have been informed of your coming to Circardia."
"If I may, since when did a Garheim recruit the help of Outlaws?"
"Master Brickvalier, this garments are only disguises. We wouldn't want to be spotted by the Queen's troops in Garheim outfitting, would we?"
Louie le Brickvalier seemed a bit annoyed that he was mistaken and the only words he could fit out were:
And so Louie le Brickvalier and his army preceded into the fortress and prepared for war.

This is my entry for the LCC GCVI Unrestricted Category! The actual gate was inspired by one of my contacts' build, although I can't seem to both remember or find it. Anyhow, I am quite fond of the build, except for the fact that it does look much better in person than on camera! ;)
