I feel reassured and inspired by my bodyguard. I take a deep breath, and then I produce the loudest sound I can. I hope this works.

I'll charge full speed into the nearest spider.

(OOC: Am I supposed to update my food each turn, or am I stuck at 390 for a reason?)

A feeling hits me, like an outside force has intervened, my inspiration fades. But it returns in a different form. We could build some sort of barricade! The wood wouldn't work, so instead, I order my men to use mud. 40 soldiers are to supervize the building of mud walls around the city

I just reread it, and I hope I didn't come off as snide with my question. I was just a little unsure. But it's no big deal at all, I'll try to pay more attention to my food each turn.

TURN 7 - Next deadline: August 3, 12:01 PM

"Drive them back! Argh..!" cried Captain Verulus as he plunged his sharp steel rapier into a Tarantula. He was covered in sweat and the thick black blood of his foes, his once golden cape now ragged and black as well. His steel cuirass had taken a lot of punishment, but had saved him from a couple of would-be deadly blows. His helmet had fallen off his head and was lost in the battle, his face was punished and black.

He was one of the many mantises defending the hole in the wall that the Tarantulas' devilry had opened, the others his bodyguards. Again and again would they rout the foe, only to have another wave come in and fight. They were growing weary, but the battle pressed on. Many corpses were decorating the wet dirt, most of them black and hairy. However, bright steel armor and green blood was present as well, and not in small numbers

Another Tarantula wave rushed forth to meet the proud but weary rapiers of the Captain's Guard, and once again the attackers were defeated and sent into a rout. Once again, more of the Guards fell to the ground, their corpses joining the multitude of bodies in the dirt.

Atop the walls, the fighting had almost come to an end. The Tarantulas had been driven back into the ground, some of the siege engines had been disabled or destroyed. Now, corpses were the ones protecting the tall walls from assault. Fire raged in the buildings close to the wall, creating a horrid black backdrop for the battle. Arrows still flew from the unassailable gatehouse and crashed against the relentless tarantulas that charged again and again.

"Captain!" cried one of the members of the Guard, his face haggard and bruised. "Look!" From atop the gatehouse, the banner of the Mantises flew proudly, even as one of its two towers had collapsed upon itself after one of the destructive black spheres had been thrown against it by a catapult. The Mantises above were thus trapped atop the gatehouse, but still they hailed the brave members of the Guard that still fought.

During this brief intermission, as the Tarantulas rallied for another assault, good words were exchanged amongst those trapped in the a building and those trapped in a battle. Then, the black storm rushed forward once more, trying again to break the second best soldiers in the mantis dominion, and failing once more.

The mantises spat on the corpses, and wearily, cheered their brethren.

"Captain!" cried another soldier, the one with the haggard face had perished, sliced in half by a heavy greatsword. "Look!" This time, the soldier pointed towards the distance.

"Sh**." answered Verulus as he strained his eyes.

The catapult is captured and the men storm the outside barricades of the Anthill. The enemies protecting it were caught unaware and were viciously killed by your soldiers.

From inside the enemy Anthill, cries are heard. Some are mad, more are happy. Now, your men hold all possible escape routes from the Anthill, and your legions approach it, ready to storm it once and for all.

Despite the efforts of the wise women, the Bee dies in your hive. His body is properly buried, and then night falls. Next morning, some of your scouts approach you upon your waking.

"Sir, the nearby hive appears to have collapsed from its place. Whatever threw it down was certainly not mother nature. There are strange markings in the branch that was broken and upon which the hive was restingâ¦you should come and see."

Keep Defenses: Dirt Wall (Minor) {Upgrading to Clay Wall next turn}

"March!" cries your general as he urges the troops forward into battle. The soldiers, two regiments of 130 soldiers (I assume?) advance to battle and engage the Mantises attacking the city.

The city has a small dirt wall around it, there are also small dirt watchtowers in the wall from which ants with slingshots are firing pebbles into the attacking force. A crimson standard depicting an ant with a shield flies with the wind. The ants notice that you are friendly, and during the battle, one of their representatives advances towards your general and shakes his hand, speaking in an unknown tongue.

"Sure, we'll help!" answers your general, attempting to communicate with the ant through gestures. Then, your soldiers approach the battle and flank the attackers. Your orders.

Battle Scenario
Mantises Remaining: 412
Ants Remaining: 251
Your Soldiers: 260

"Yaaah!" cry your men as they beset the foe from all directions. The silence that was present only a few moments earlier is terribly broken by the clash of mandible on flesh and limb on exoskeleton. After a few brief moments, one of the enemy is dead. The first Tarantula to die was rather fat, he had no time to respond to the sudden onset by you and four of your men that jumped on top of the creature and used your strong mandibles to chop its head off.

The second one fell shortly after, as another six of your men jumped simultaneously into the creature and bit deep into its bodice, shortly afterwards strangling it to death. The third, however, had quicker reactions and after splattering one of your men and crushing another's skull with its eight limbs, it stood up and repelled attack with a fire-stick. Soon, however, it fell to one of your stronger men, who ran under the beast and climbed its back to take a deep bite into its head.

After this heroic deed, your men celebrated and cried loudly, shaking you vigorously in celebration. "All hail to our brave and courageous leader! Haha!"

"You could not be more right, king!" said the ants of the Fallen, as they joyously celebrated as the empire's food income nearly doubled. The Night Ants came shortly after with a small gift of 20 food in honor of your alliance, and they left soon after.

(You do know that your hive is up in a tree, right? I think you want the wall to be at the tree trunk's base? It'll be there, I guess).

Your men have begun building the walls, hurriedly piling mud before the Termites come out on their daily wood-chewing trip. When they follow it, they taunt and mock the men building the wall, who ignore these insults and proceed with their work.

I take a moment to enjoy the victory, still panting from the rush of the battle.

"Alright, very, very well done men! We have defeated these fearsome arachnid rogues," I say. The soldiers are clearly proud of their endeavor, and rightfully so. "Now, we are surely a tired bunch, but I would like to head back to the Lodge right away. I hate to even imagine who we might have disturbed with that commotion," I say, looking up at the sky wearily. One never knows, I think as I study the sky for a moment. Feeling the anxious gazes of the survivors, I bring my attention back to them. "Of course, if you all do not feel well enough to travel back home yet, we can rest here for a while. What are your thoughts?"

If my workers can research Gathering while I am away, that would be great.
