Citadel Gates are fortresses that guard some the world’s largest cities. With external barracks and archer positions, they provide a solid defense to the tens of thousands of civilians inside. Most of these massive fortifications were built at the time of the Great Empire to protect immense population centers. They show unmistakable Knight cultural influences and many were reclaimed by the Iron Legion as theirs by ancestral right, regardless of which faction occupied it.

Overview Edit

The castle sits on the side of a small cliff overseeing the ramparts surrounding the thing with troops marching in the distance. The battlefield sits trapped between two walls and a cliff. A battering ram has begun smashing at the gate but it will need time to complete. Connected to the main gate is the courtyard where defending troops will rally. Immediately out the courtyard on the right side by the cliff is a very empty armory. A stone bridge lines the side of the cliff and the gazebo are all ruins. As you move away from the walls you come across the blue dome, which provides an excellent view across the battlefield. You can leave via a walkway passing in front of the main gate, a ladder to the ground, or the inner ramparts to the forest beyond.

In Dominion, the attackers have reached the final obstacle between them and city within. They have a battering ram work on the door but the defenders are regrouping in the courtyard. The attackers fire catapults to try destroy the gate and seal the soldiers inside. But the defenders see this and their archers unleash a volley of arrows. The attackers hide under their shields as the arrows rain down, but the tactic works. The defenders manage to smash the chain holding the drawbridge to the courtyard and the door falls open. With the defenders out on the field, the attackers have no choice but to respond in kind.
