Days ago, a message was put up by the Grand General of the Knights of Fiore, Arabelle Kitanova.
"The Eisenstadt". It's the name of a newly developed massive, mobile fortress recently created by the Boscans. Carved out of one of Bosco's own mountains and constructed with highly advanced machinery, this gigantic, earth and steel-covered war machine acts as a dangerous multi-purpose engine of destruction.
Its primary function is to serve as a massive mobile fortress, capable of carrying a veritable army within itself. Not only this, it also houses its own factory, where smaller armored mobile craft can be assembled and deployed. The result is a fortress capable of appearing and staging an invasion virtually anywhere. Imagine such a weapon appearing on Fioran soil.
Recently, our Scouts have reported this fortress has temporarily halted its advance towards us in order to gather resources before it deploys against us. This is our opportunity to destroy the vessel while we can. However, this will by no means be an easy feat. The Boscans will be expecting us, and the Eisenstadt is indeed a fortress, armed to the death with an army of its own. However, we must do everything within our power to destroy it while it is still immobile, for the threat it poses to Fiore is enormous. This battle will be like nothing the world has seen thus far."- Arabella Kitanova, Grand General of the Knights of Fiore
The Eisenstadt needed to be destroyed at all costs, but this would not be an easy feat. The Boscans were heavily entrenched, and the fortress itself was heavily armed, armored, and full of battle-hardened and elite soldiers. The only way to break through was for Fiore to throw its might against Bosco. As a result, a fighting force the likes of which hadn't been seen since the Rune Wars of old was assembled. Tens of thousands strong, traveling on foot, horseback, commandeered or reverse-engineered Boscan craft, and other such means moved forward. But it was the airships, Fiore's pride and joy in this war, that were the the real centerpiece.
Fiore hadn't brought just one airship for this battle. No, not even two. In this pivotal battle, Fiore brought forth three. The Marigold, the Orchid, and the Heliotrope, each among the largest, most armed, and armored airships Fiore had ever fielded, cruised towards the site of what was guaranteed to be a world-changing battle. But, equally as notable as the airships themselves were the people aboard them, but also the people on the ground.
This was perhaps Fiore's most elite battlefield force. Famous knights were gathered for this fight, alongside some of the most capable mages that the country had seen, most of whom were veterans to this new style of all-out war against the Boscans. Fiore had even employed the likes of Guild Masters in this fight. Varg Cerberus stood with other mages and soldiers on the ground. Vile Strudam stood atop the Heliotrope, watching the horizon as dawn slowly approached. Meanwhile, Isaac Technus tinkered in the depths of the Marigold, clearly plotting something eccentric and unusual. Fiore even brought their most notorious Knight, the General known as Rance Gallagher, to this battle knowing that, as much of an embarassment as he was, his strength was truly needed for the coming fight.
Dawn was not far from now. The moment the sun rose over the fields of Bosco the battle would commence. Time was of the essence now. If anyone had any last minute preparations, prayers, or anything, now would be the time.
- Dawn is approaching.
