Chapter Four: A New Battle


The combined Arkellian and Synestran convoy didn't take long to get back to Aldenthro going full steam. Some of the overcrowded Synestrans were moved to the Arkellian airships, and so the Synestran boats were able to move quicker and more efficiently. The warships took the lead, while the ships with passengers stayed a little behind, as they expected a fight when they reached Aldenthro. However, they did not find any Sypherians in Aldenthro; all they found was ruin and fire.


The city was utterly destroyed. The walls around the city had been broken down by cannon fire, the houses and trees had been burnt down, and the main castle and aqueduct had crumbled as well. The main gate was still mostly intact, but the harbor had been burnt.


The Synestrans aboard the first few ships were shocked and horrified to find their city destroyed, while the Arkellians were angered by the loss of such a magnificent city they had heard so much about. While most of the warships patrolled the island and surrounding area, checking for any signs of Sypherian activity, the rest of the passenger ships landed in a small clearing where the church of Aldenthro once stood. Rapp and Rova were aboard the first ship to land, along with most of the Synestran leaders, and they were the first to step down onto the scorched landscape. Rapp was reduced to few words, while Rova simply looked around in disbelief. The next few ships landed, and the combined crowd simply observed the landscape in silence.


A few hours later, the crowds had returned to their ships and were once again circling the island, discussing what to do next. It was decided that the Arkellians would assist the Synestrans in rebuilding their land, and provide them with the necessary resources to do so. The Arkellians also officially declared war against the Sypherians. Over the next few weeks, the combined efforts of the two nations were successful in rebuilding most of the harbor, walls, and some temporary housing for the residents. Construction on the steam aqueduct was next, so that Aldenthro could restart their industry.


Once Aldenthro was once again producing a decent amount of trade, the Arkellian leaders decided it was time to decide how to proceed from there. The leaders of both nations entered into a private chamber to discuss the new plan. However, the Sypherians had been watching Aldenthro being rebuilt, and were unhappy. Unknown to the alliance inside, outside the Sypherians quietly infiltrated nearly a quarter of the Arkellian fleet, and opened fire on the Synestran fleet and the Aldenthro harbor. The leaders, confused to hear cannon fire, sprinted outdoors to find their own ships firing at each other. Reinforcements were called in, but were hours away. The battle raged for many hours, until finally reinforcements arrived and the remaining stolen ships were shot down. Despite victory for the alliance, the damage had been done, and many of the Synestran and Arkellian ships were lost, and much of Port Aldenthro was up in flames.


A few days after the attack, the alliance decided it was time to strike back.

It took probably around 3 weeks, maybe half an hour of work each day. If that, actually. A lot of days I just wasn't able to work on it.
