I'm curious if anyone would be interested in reading my stories based in Cyrodiil. I left this at a stopping point to see if I should continue or not, so feedback is requested. Thanks everyone.

The last conflict I took part in on the last day of PvP weekend turned out to be one of the best of the day. Daggerfall took a castle from Ebonhart and Arcane claimed it in the name of the Covenant. Once obtained, the Daggerfall forces scatter to stake claim to another keep except a small handful of guild members and me. Repairs started on the outer walls immediately, followed by the inner walls. About 10 minutes after we claim it and barely getting the walls repaired, the small band of Arcane warriors discussed the next course of action. A shout rang out from our eastern scout telling us that Ebonhart had a large force heading our way. As soon as that was mentioned, a large Aldmeri army came over the hill.
With the sun at their backs, the Aldmeri soldiers crashed upon the castle like the waves upon a rock. With wet blood still staining the entire castle and outer lands from the war that barely concluded, the true war was beginning. With enemy swords unsheathed, the war machine began to take form. All 3 factions met up for a massive siege on our castle. Ebonhart on the north side, Aldmeri on the south east with just a few of us left to defend the castle. Numerous trebuchets, catapults, and ballistas surrounded the castle on the north and southeast sides, pounding at the walls attempting to claim what was ours. The eastern most castle that Daggerfall owned was now under full assault with no reinforcements in sight from the west.
The walls were getting hammered while troops were waiting patiently to storm the castle. Rubble from the initial bombardment on the outer wall began to build. The walls were coming down, and coming down fast. Our defenses were failing against the attacks, no matter what we did there was no stopping the enemy at the gates. I wondered to myself, if the battle was one on side it would have been different but the troops inside the castle were stretched thin enough. The call was made to abandon the outer walls and retreat to the keep to set up defenses immediately. Thunderous blow after thunderous blow the walls collapsed under the pressure of every boulder and every arrow from the siege weapons bombarding the outer defensive wall. Finally the wall was breached as the enemy rushed the keep.
All 3 factions fighting for the claim of 1 castle, our castle. We would not give up easily, but the morale of our small force was dwindling and hanging by a thread....
