Desert 93

A rattle came from the Entrance Gate due to the rise of the portcullis. Then came the riders in armor along with the raised dust. That was our regular army in a hurry to help. A warrior with the huge banner of the settlement was riding ahead. The banner depicted a golden double-bladed axe on a green field. At the same time, from the Gate and the rampart, the roar of many horns and the beats of drums came. These sounds seemed to be heard from all directions. I inwardly applauded those who staged such an impressive performance to encourage our people and to intimidate and distract the enemies.

Hi Oleks, well done! Keep it up!

A rattle came from the Entrance Gate due to the rise of the portcullis. Then came the riders in armor along with the raised dust. That was our regular army in a hurry to help. A warrior with the huge banner of the settlement was riding ahead (Also, A warrior was riding ahead holding the huge banner of the settlement). The banner depicted a golden double-bladed axe on a green field (background). At the same time, from the Gate and the rampart, the roars of many horns and the beats of drums came. These sounds seemed to be heard from all directions. I inwardly applauded those who staged such an impressive performance to encourage our people and to intimidate and distract the enemies.

Hi Ali! Thank you! I have to think English already. Although, I'm already starting to understand something.

Hi Oleks,

I'm glad to hear you have more support on the battleground now! Shouldn't your soldiers from the regular army have come earlier during the battle though? I suppose they came as quickly as they possibly could.

Yet another fantastic, engrossing instalment in this story! I loved how you described the huge banner.

Again, so little to correct here. I agree with Aliakbar when it comes to this sentence. (It follows the subject, verb, object rule we have) A warrior  (subject) was riding (verb 1) ahead holding (verb 2) the huge banner (object) of the settlement

Hi Ed! Thank you for your notes! I remembered one of our old jokes: "outside the window snow and two Red Army men goes". I think my sentence above sounds like this.
