The Confederate army told us to surrender and evacuate our city. We refused. We know they are preparing to attack us at any moment. To help us defend ourselves, we have blocked all routes to the city's stronghold, except one – giving us the advantage. You must hold off the attacks long enough to demoralize their ranks and force them to retreat.
Our spies have learned that the Confederate army are massing right outside the city gates. Be prepared for an attack on the gate. There is one main road leading from the gate, which then divides into two small paths. There are also tunnels, which allow infantry to move through the city unnoticed. Do not let them surround you!
We discovered an old mansion, strategically located in the center of the city, with only two access routes. We have converted it to a stronghold, and believe some well-positioned defences in the roads could easily deter attackers. However, there is a network of tunnels running beneath the city, and the Confederate army could use these to bypass our defenders. Be wary!
From the frying pan, into the fire! We thought we would have time to prepare our defenses in this new city – but the Confederates were ready for us! Now we're surrounded, with two strongholds to protect. Don't ask why, you don't want to know. We must survive the battle, and protect our strongholds at all cost!
The remains of the southern division of our militia are thinly spread, and under attack. Help them hold off the enemy, and we might just live to see the end of the day. Eliminate those Officers!
Our forces have moved to the suburbs surrounding the now destroyed Grand Maces Palace. It is here in the perimeter of the city that several groups of civilians have taken shelter. They witnessed our operations at the Palace and are now a liability. Ensure the destruction of the rest of the palace. Ensure that those civilians become victims of bombardment.
Our mighty leader, Warlord Sahrab, has put his final plans into motion. This coming battle should finally unite the Atelian people. We have fortified our stronghold, and our men are ready. We know the Confederates will throw everything they have at us, so be prepared. Hold out, and beat the Confederates like the dogs they are.
Following the success of our campaign, we have withdrawn to the Yorgian Mountains. Here we hope to rid the Confederates of excess troops and equipment before the glorious uprising which is surely coming any day now. Until then, focus on the task at hand, and eliminate as many troops as possible.
