The fortress had two gates, one big and one small, connected with a thick wall and trenches outside. The big gate was undefended, 'cause it was too huge to be destroyed without heavy siege weapons, and the first "wave" of Demons only had simple ground units, but maybe they will bring some siege machinery in a later wave. However, the smaller one was hardly attacked, but hardly defended too. In the middle stood the castle, surrounded by the dark-gray walls. Here Brost, Kallrog and Edward was inside. Silverstein had moved out to join the war once again. Kallrog was about to run out too, but stayed until he heard Blood Arcs voice inside his head calling for his help... He ran out, glad to help his God, was hoping to once again gain the blessing of sight or other blessings. Brost stood to the side of the table that Edward lied on. Only he had mentioned the Dwarf-like symbols on the walls. Edward whispered "Brost... Help me up... We must call for the nations' help... if we all are going to... survive this!"...
Brost took up Edwards' table and carried it on the shoulder out of the castle. He yelled out something un-understandable and four-or-five Stone-men ran away from the small gate to him. The rest kept helping the Humans, while Brost and his small group of Stone-men opened up the other stronger gate, killed the few Demons that unsuccesfully tried to destroy it. They were easily killed and Brost left the fortress. Some of Ratavas' men locked the gate again and ran to the other smaller one. A long journey was ahead for Edward Blitz, Brost and the few stone-men, unless they met some enemy-army on the way. Then all would be lost...!
