'Take your plots to hell with you!' he roared, and like a sack of salt, he hurled the prince of Pellia far out, to fall through empty space for a hundred and fifty feet. The people gave back as the body came hurtling down, to smash on the marble pave, spattering blood and brains, and lie crushed in its splintered armor, like a mangled beetle.

Crafting fortifications is the beginning of a coherent siege survival strategy but it is the least interesting and least creative part of the equation. A good fortification includes structures that are built for a specific purpose - such as murder holes created to lure enemies through a gauntlet of deadly traps.

These siege cauldrons, filled with boiling tar, are another tool in the arsenal of a military engineer. They can be used to discourage eager climbers or to wreak havoc on enemies trapped in a murder hole. These cauldrons are modified to immediately ignite the poured tar, incinerating any poor wretch in the target area.
