This is my entry to the Desert King's Nocturnus Crusade mini-challenge Changing Allegiance (again) The notorious mercenary company "The Arkbri Falcons", under the command of Ediz Falconi, were fighting for the High Council during the Kaliphlin Civil War. They have however decided that at the moment joining the forces of the Desert King presents the most likely prospect for hoards of gold at a moderate risk.

Right now the AF are fighting for the salvation of Kaliphlin against the Hand of Corruption forces, or at least fighting them because Sir Gideon and his wealthy friend Emad ibn Sohail al-Haboob has paid them a lot of gold to do it. The AF are using the tower as a base of their operations in the area, and have so far been quite successful in stopping some of the Hand's smaller raiding parties. The locals call the tower "Falcon's Nest", both because of its inhabitants and because of its appearance. The tower is easy to defend as there is no way up except by a rope ladder which the defenders can easily raise, and they are also stocking up on provisions to be able to withstand some time surrounded if a larger enemy force would appear. The rope ladder can be lowered to allow access: Bringing in provisions to the small garrison: Steps hewn in the rock, once they extended all the way to the top but some defenders centuries back decided to remove most of them
