Nova

Nova listened to Durandel pad off, hoping that the lava wolf's plan would pay off. Nova certainly didn't know where to start looking for a hidden entrance. Well okay, he would know where to START. There are only so many places around a wall that a sally port could be hidden. But it would still take time.

"You said you have some tricks up your fur? Have you ever snuck into a heavily guarded fortress before?"

No, as a matter of fact Nova hadn't. Most of his spycraft had consisted of going around trying to stop a giant war from breaking out, and that had surprisingly little to do with sneaking into heavily fortified places. Nova scratched the ground idly a few times with his front paw.

He hadn't snuck into fortresses, no...

But he did know a thing or two about how they operated. His father was the Chief Fortifications Expert of the Ausi. He was the one who helped re engineer Neva City's great walls. There were certain principles of defense that all engineers followed, simply because they were the best.

"Well, obviously we are going to want to ignore the gatehouse. That is always the most strongly fortified position. If this place is designed properly, they will also have interlocking sentry positions, so that no part of the wall is unguarded. But..."

He began to think back to how his father's walls were designed. There is always an inherent weakness in building a fortress anywhere that isn't a perfectly open, flat plain. Due to topography, there was almost always going to be a blind spot on the walls. Not as blatant as missing a tower, but a spot where the distance between the two towers is just too far enough away for the guards covering that sector to have a good look. Especially in the dark. That was just the reality of uneven terrain.

"If we can stick on the side of the fortress that has the guard towers spaced furthest apart, usually on a hill or something, we should be able to sneak in an area that is too difficult for the guards to watch."
