  22. 22. Fighting Strategies – Psychological Warfare<br />We use psychological warfare by propping up dummies to make our defense look bigger and intimidate the enemies (defense only).<br />Another way we use psychological warfare is by throwing the heads of our dead enemies back into their castle (offense only).<br />
  23. 23. Fighting Strategies - Alliances<br />We have an alliance with Golden Lake Manor and Hornwood Manor.<br />Lord Roslin of Golden Lake Manor and Lord Theutberga of Hornwood have agreed to fight along side Oakwood Manor in battle. <br />Their armies will help us outnumber our enemies and they will use their strategies to ensure our success.<br />
  24. 24. Castle Extras<br />Donjons – massive square towers were built on the castles for protection.<br />Stairs – stairs were built between each floor on the castle so that right-handed attackers found it difficult to use their swords when climbing a staircase and most of their bodies would be easily attacked by defenders on the floors above.<br />Moats – water filled ditches enclosed the castle.<br />Wall – an 8 foot thick wall surrounded the castle.<br />
  25. 25. Castle Extras (cont.)<br />Gatehouse – main entrance to the castle, which was usually attacked first, and clever traps awaited the intruder.<br />Bailey – animals and villagers sheltered were, and it was usually right behind the castle walls.<br />Wells – they were vital for drinking water and washing.<br />Keep – shelter deep within the castle where the lord and his family were protected.<br />Hoardings – protected the defenders. Animal hides stretched over the top of them for protection against flaming arrows. From the hoardings, they dropped rocks, boiling water, and burning lime on the opposing army. <br />
