In the second volume of my fantasy series, I decided to include a battle that will have one unique factor that will set it apart from the others. Instead of being sunny and dry or dark and cold, this battle will take place in the middle of a rainstorm. Rain can have several unexpected hinderances during a medieval battle. The ground will be so muddy and slippery that cavalry charges will be useless. Bowstrings need to be dry in order to work so firing arrows is also not an option. Therefore, fighting on foot is the only option and even that is difficult because the ground would be muddy and slippery so the soldiers cannot get an even footing and the rain and wind would constantly blow in their faces. From the way I see it, this is going to be a grueling and filthy battle where victory or defeat can be decided with one misstep or one missed attack.
