The Citadel

The Citadel
They thought she was just a library; a sleepy pile of dust and books. A surprise attack, and one more point on the map would fall into the void. The Mayor and his friends would be demoralized and pushed one step closer to surrender. She was just a library... of every book on tactics and strategy and war from all reaches and realms. Her charge was efficient and precise. Her defenses were impervious and elegant. Her plan was ruthless and thorough. To celebrate her quick and decisive victory, she settled down on the edge of the darkness with tea and an ancient book on great sea battles.
