The peak is an element for the craft for (for the moment) two defensives structures : Stakes and the Cheval de Frise.

Cheval de Frise :

The Cheval de Frise is a fence which block the enemy, he cannot pass over and if he tries, he will be hurt.

Stakes :

Like the Cheval de Frise, but to bury in the ground, if an enemy falls on it, he will die quickly.


Caltrops :

Caltrops are used to slow enemies down.


Pitch oven and the pitch :

The pitch is a very inflammable liquid, got with a pitch oven.

To get the pitch, you must put barrels (The container) and wood log (This is the principle of desiccation). You get too some charcoal. The process is very long, like in real life. This process already is known by Romans who used for their ships.

The pitch must to be bury in the ground to work. When a fired arrow hits the top, it burst into flames. (You can too burn with a lighter).

Brazier :

The brazier allows to (heavy) bowmen to shoot fired arrows ! (Useful to burn the pitch)
