This is the transcript for the twentieth Stronghold mission, Much Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth.
Storyteller: As the Wolf's reign appears to be drawing to a close, more counties begin to overthrow his henchmen and flock to your banner.
(At the enemy castle...)
Duc Volpe: Duc Beauregard may have led your father into the trap, but I drove the sword through his stomach! *laughs* If you still have a hunger for vengeance, you know where to find me.
Storyteller: Although you have yet to hear word from Sir Longarm, you are still determined to avenge your father's death and command your troops to march onwards. Upon arriving in the next county, a message arrives from Sir Longarm.
Sir Longarm: I told you to be cautious, what were you thinking? You do not have a hope against the Wolf on open ground. Take shelter in his deserted castle and hold them off from where you are, until I can get to you with reinforcements. I have sent some of our forces in the area ahead to start fortifying the castle.
Storyteller: Build up your forces and the castle itself, and defend your current position until Sir Longarm arrives with reinforcements. You will be defending yourself against the Wolf's entire army in the biggest siege you have ever faced. Use knights to conduct sorties out of the castle.
Storyteller: Although you have secured the county, the Wolf has managed to escape from your clutches with many of his men.
