|Cannons are low tech artillery with medium damage, but perfect against city gates, walls, and infantry. Cannons are great for sieges in groups, and perfect for killing infantry.|
|Flame Tanks are excellent against cities and fortresses. Additionally Flame Tanks are highly recommended for burning up foes on thebattlefield, unless they know how to remove the fires by themselves, or protected.|
|Landships are heavy artillery and siege weapons armed with cannons and best for attacking fortress and cities. It cannot easily bring down because of it's high defense. A fleet of Landship will surely bring destruction to the battlefield.|
|I Climbed intro the hatch and sealed the overhead latch. Locking my body into the harness, I activated the compact boilers and tapped the fuel gauge. The mana-cells glowed with energy. Fresh and ready for battle, I released the first steam valve and locked in the marionette-like motion activators. Every movement of my body caused the Golem to react in like manner. I stomped across the battlefield, and struck a rock giant in the chest. It grabbed me. I half expected the whole contraption to explode, but the Golem stood solid. I pushed back, grappling hand to hand with the creature! Imagine! Me! A simple engineer locked in melee with a legend!
