Quandary Resolution 4204
predial, subduct, extemporize, acephalous

As the siege of the fortress began, we realized rather quickly that we could not scale the walls, and soon found ourselves acephalous when our general took an arrow to the chest, but spying an old gate that must have been used for market days in the past, I decided to extemporize, and knowing that most of my fellow fighters were from a predial background – farmers, still armed mostly with hoes, scythes and the like – I raised my rake and shouted, ”We must subduct the military plan and move forward with the element of surprise; if we can’t go over the walls, we will go around them!”.
