    >ON TIME??!?!?! BWAH?????
    Last time on Commander Quest: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/12388813/

    As your men set up camp in the recently captured ruins, you once again find yourself looking at maps and considering strategy, you have two sets of ruins to take, and once you take one; the other will surely be notified, leaving you outnumbered and exhausted in a difficult to defend position. One of your recently captured Aurachnaspecus tilts its body upwards to let out a clicking, screeching ululating cry... its either hungry or angry, you still dont know which a day and a half after you captured the things. Once the beast quiets down, you hear you messenger eagle cry out as it lands on the perch you had made for it, message tube attatched to its talon.

    >> Maximus 10/10/10(Sun)21:07 No.12400981
    Read the note. Also guys, I've been thinking on what we should do and here's my rough idea for now. Opinions will be needed.

    It's risky as hell but we have an ace in the hole - we use the mercenaries as spies since as far as the enemy knows, they still work for them. I imagine the rebels are sending supplies to the units here by the tunnels or they're keeping in contact with them through this. We use the mercs to send a fake request for torches (potentially giving us more torches and denying them) for the Lacerta guarding the ruins we are in. That allows the mercs to figure out where the brazier is in the two ruins. When we're sure of which ruins it is in, we get the mercs to send a false message to the other set of ruins saying the emergency tunnels are under attack and they were sent to get help from both sets of ruins. We then strike the ruins where the brazier is at and the other ruins likely won't be able to send anything serious to help since they'll be sending troops to falsely defend the emergency tunnel. At that point, we'd capture the brazier and we can force them to come after us since when their torches die out, they can no longer support the Lacertans. In fact, the Lacertans might start to surrender with no way of keeping themselves warm.

    Modifications and other additions are needed but what do you guys think of this general plan?

    "Commander Trentz, these developments are indeed disturbing. Upon you sucessfull return to DragonsReach you will receive an extra month to replenish your forces before being deployed to the Eastern Front. If at all possible capture the leader of the rebellion, soldiers in his or her employ are now a second priority to ceasing this madness before it saps our strength from the war with Uurlanth. A team of investigators is being dispatched to the ruins of Avensgate to discern what manner of portable siege weapons could have such an effect on a cities fortifications." the letter bears the seal of the Second Praetorian.

    The ruined fortress is built into a mountain, so you would imagine that the caves are all around you
    >> Centurion 10/10/10(Sun)21:10 No.12401020
    One problem, weren't the torches magical Everlasting Torches and that's why we had to secure them? Also, how many did we capture When we took the tunnel mouth? Otherwise it sounds pretty good.

    >> Maximus 10/10/10(Sun)21:14 No.12401067
    The sorcery of our opponent is the biggest problem to be honest but I'm hoping that he won't use it if we attack the ruins he is in. It very well might make the place collapse on himself and his own forces/brazier.

    I don't think the torches were everlasting but I could be wrong. Info on that Pax? Are they everlasting or do they need to be re-lit now and then? What gear were we able to salvage? Nothing specific and just stuff to refit the villagers to have more protection and stuff?

    yes, they are magical, if the fire they are lit with is magical in nature (originating from a magician or something like the brazier/another torch it will burn indefinitely. If the fire is mundane in origin, coming from a campfire, forest fire, or something a Fire Elementalist conjured from a spark and the gasses in the air the torch will consume about 1/100th of the fuel that a fire the size of the torches head would normally need).

    the unit of Lacertans was 150 strong, so you got 10.

    >> Maximus 10/10/10(Sun)21:17 No.12401102
    Damn. No free torches then. Then perhaps we can just send fake messages giving fake reports or request for other supplies like food and while the mercs are there, they can scope out the ruins for the brazier.
    >> Centurion 10/10/10(Sun)21:19 No.12401122
    Only 50 left then.

    We want to crush this rebellion utterly yes? We should use our current advantage to defeat them in detail. As far as we know all the enemy forces are split between the camp at the river bend and the ruins, yes? What say while the mercs go spying to figure out the brazier/enemy sorceror's location we hit the river camp? We should take this opportunity to defeat them in detail.
    >> Maximus 10/10/10(Sun)21:22 No.12401159
    Might be worth doing. Part of me doesn't want to so we have absolute surprise on one of the ruins but at the same time, the thought of letting us be seen and making them prepare outer defenses at the ruins while we come in from behind is appealing. The only problem is if they get nervous when we disappear on the field and are going through the tunnels and think maybe we have discovered those tunnels.
    >> Centurion 10/10/10(Sun)21:25 No.12401186
    Best case scenario:River camp goes down, no messengers get out, we retain element of surprise

    Bad case scenario:One messenger gets out, we hit whichever ruin wasn't alerted with a surprise frontal assault then use the tunnels to launch a surprise attack on the other ruin

    Very bad case:Messengers warn both ruins, we hit one ruin with a surprise attack from the tunnels and it gets a messenger off, we are left with a single enemy camp forewarned about us but we can lay siege to it

    Worst case:The attack on the river camp fails, enemy is warned and we lose most of our forces. We no longer have the troops necessary to defeat this rebellion and are forced to retreat in disgrace
    >> Pompieus the Butcher 10/10/10(Sun)21:26 No.12401200

    okay , idea. we send the mercs , the least battered one , back to the ruins with the brazier

    simultaneously , we attack the river camp in force and let some raiders get away to lure the main body of rebels out of the ruins.

    once the're gon , the mercs steal the brazier , bring it back to our ruins , they fire the tunnels leading to our ruins ,then we implement the mountian defence

    Not sure we want to dig in in the ruins without accounting for the enemy sorcerer, he could potentially collapse a mountain on us or something.
    >> Maximus 10/10/10(Sun)21:29 No.12401237
    Fair enough. I'm only worried, however, that we'll take losses we might not appreciate taking the camp. It'll take time to go from the camp back to these ruins and in that time, they might send messengers to the camp and see it gone. I think if we're using the tunnels, we should use them first. The longer we take to hit the ruins, the more rested they'll be after the attack on Avensgate.

    How is Finian doing? He still super suicidal or has he started to come back to his senses in any way?

    Tell us what you want to do with her first.

    We'll have to engage those troops at some point anyway. I agree we need to use the tunnels while we can, but if we hit a ruin from the tunnels they'll go to full alert and I'd like to take out as many as possible before they realize we're here. The tunnel guards here didn't know we were coming, so we can assume the main raider force doesn't as well.
    >> Maximus 10/10/10(Sun)21:33 No.12401280

    you throw a chunk of boarox meat from the kill one of your hunters got this morning into your Aurachnaspecus' cage, the beasts immediately start tearing at it with their claws, shoveling the torn shreds into their neckless truncated heads, their wide mouths making a mess as they set their myriad needlelike teeth to work on their food.

    You summon your mercenary captains into you room. Aaryn arrives first, his steel gray surecoat wet with sweat, bastard sword in its shoulder-sheath. you can hear the mercenaries mail slinking into itself beneath the coat. Aurthurias arrives shortly afterwards in a plain black shirt and brown trousers, his face slightly flush from drinking. "How can we help you, commander? we already told you that the mercenary units aren't allowed into the deeper portions of the rebel camps; we are used as perimeter and supply train guards. Have you decided on a course of action yet, the supply train is due to leave on the morrow, and will arrive by the end of the week, 6 days from now. If you wish to keep the element of surprise..."
    >> Centurion 10/10/10(Sun)21:35 No.12401313
    I agree we need a patron god, but first we need to impress one, and that means a glorious battle at this point.

    Hmmmm....actually, sneaking into the enemy camp with our retinue and the mercs might be a good idea. We'd get to see the enemy dispositions firsthand. Problem is I'm not sure I trust the mercs to not betray us.

    Spidews are 4 feet tall and very mean. No Spidew cavalry I'm afraid.

    Good point. Hadn't thought of that.

    But the mercs are only two light infantry units, that wouldn't help much.
    >> Maximus 10/10/10(Sun)21:36 No.12401316
    We actually might not have to take the camp out. We know a large portion of their forces are mercenaries correct? If the leader of an army is gone, why would the mercenaries stick around to fight? As well, there are numerous criminals working for them and without a real leader, they won't be problematic in a field battle. If we can seize the brazier as well, we may be lucky and some of the Lacertan's might surrender although now that we know their torches are magical, that might not actually happen.

    I do agree though it would be nice to take their forces out while they don't know we're here. As I said though, I'm just worried they might stumble across us finding the emergency tunnels by chance or realize the camp is gone while we're going back to the emergency tunnels. Very risky either way...

    How far is the camp from these ruins? How large are the supply trains? We might be able to take the camp and make it back to ambush the supplies and still be able to use the emergency tunnels then.
    >> Xenophon 10/10/10(Sun)21:38 No.12401344
    Two light infantry and whatever it is Aurthurias leads. And it would leave them close enough to be in combat when the battle starts and we would have them surrounded.
    >> Centurion 10/10/10(Sun)21:39 No.12401348
    Maybe leave the mercenaries here to pretend the tunnels are secure in case someone checks before that supply train gets here?

    I'm not sure I like the idea of thousands of criminals running around the area after all it's gone through. Mercenaries are one thing, but that's a lot of raiders to be leaving alive when we're supposed to solve this problem.
    >> Maximus 10/10/10(Sun)21:40 No.12401358
    Oh we can crush the raiders and criminals after. I just think we should cut the head of this army off if we can. They'll be a lot easier to handle without their main leader on the scene coordinating them into proper attacks and such and they'd no longer have the power of a god behind them.

    they caravans use the tunnels so as not to draw attention, and come from either one of the ruins the rebels occupy, sometimes both. they carry enough food and other supplies to keep 5 battalions fed, watered and generally in passable spirits for another week
    >> Maximus 10/10/10(Sun)21:42 No.12401388
    I should of been more specific - how large is the caravan guard? If we can't make it back from the camp before the caravan arrives, we might want to leave an ambush for it and that would give us a little more time to go through the tunnels to hit one of the ruins.
    >> Xenophon 10/10/10(Sun)21:42 No.12401391

    well my plan just went out the window

    hokay , new plan , take out supply train , disguise ourselves and our retinue as survivors from the supply train , go to enemy camp through tunnels , so we have exremely important news for the exiled dwarf in command , go meet him , kill him , find brazier , flee back into tunnels , lure the enemy into the tunnels behind us , once we get out of tunnels , collapse them , there by eradicating the leadership of the rebellion and berefting them of a significant advantage in numbers and the entire reason we're here , the brazier
    >> Pax !uGYNBMPzOs 10/10/10(Sun)21:45 No.12401418
    it ranges from 340 to 450, toughly two battalions. And itd be about a week overland at best to the riverbed camp one way. and that'd be a forced march.

    Bloody hell. Then I say we camp out in these ruins, ambush the caravan and then hit the ruins that the caravan came from. We can even have the mercs lead the caravan back and likely get inside the ruins to cause maximum damage when we strike.

    Hitting the camp means we won't be able to stop them from finding out about us hitting their emergency tunnels since we'd take too long to march back and the caravan disappearing would make them suspicious.

    "No, no, some of the information these gentlmen had for me has simply caused me to have to recoinsider some of my plans. ahve a seat, and perhaps some of your knowledge will help me come to my decision." You reply aimiable, gesturing at the open shair next to the mercenaries.

    "It'd be me pleasure ta help Commander. What is it?" Uurist replies

    "Do you know what sort of offense could cause a dwarf from the Duchy to have his whole body shaved?" you ask point blank.

    "Aye, thatd' be failed traitors. Honorless louts who try to kill the members of the Great Council, or instigate a civil war... but who botched it so badly after comin' so close to success that there was no grounds to kill them, yet no sane dwarf would let him dwell within the halls of the great city.

    I meant the dwarves. The spidews aren't big enough, they're too slow to act as actual cavalry. Bear cavalry is valuable for shock value. Real cavalry is valuable for speed. Spidews have neither in abundance. Putting dwarves on Spidews gives us a slow, tired Spidew with a dwarf perched uncomfortably on its back unable to shoot straight-no gain, no reason.

If they wish to help us, they can, but I was thinking more of a Perseus character. He may know they exist but we should not become subject to their will and whim just because it is the easy route.

    Dude, you've got your goddesses wrong.
    Let me help:
    Raynha, Lady of the Estate. This goddess joined her husband in taking up arms against the Pantheon of the Moon during the schism, defending the battered Nyeteri and Sunrise Hall from the ravaging forces of the Pantheon of Moon. She holds domain over earth, loyalty and stability. Sending forth the spirits of fallen warriors to aid those who fight to maintain a righteous cause, or defending the lives and livelihoods of the innocent and defenseless.

    Lamynus, The Sucubus Queen. The hot-headed goddess of fire, lust and destruction. known to send forth succubi, incubi and imps to do her bidding. One of the most actively malicious members of the Pantheon of the Moon, her minions know great power and pleasure... her foes often suffer a painful lingering demise.

    Raynha: Good goddess who supports loyalty, stability, and has indicated she approves of us

    Lamynus: Evil goddess. Specifically:
    >One of the most actively malicious members of the Pantheon of the Moon
    We'd need to pretty much do exactly what our enemies are doing and start wiping out random innocent villages just to get Lamynus's attention.

    >a bitch who wont go easy on us if we fuck up
    That describes Lamynus perfectly. Raynha on the other hand is a Good goddess.
    >Sending forth the spirits of fallen warriors to aid those who fight to maintain a righteous cause
    So she'd actively help us as long as we fight for Good, which we seem to be doing so far.

    Huh. Not sure I like that.

    So far our enemy's actions have been a lot more like what Lamynus would want than ours. As I said, we'd pretty much need to go full-out raider to attract her attention, and we don't know she ISN'T involved.

    All we know for sure is Garagush is powering an enemy sorcerer, we have reason to believe Karythria is aiding him, and winning a major battle would probably attract Raynha's attention.

    I agree on the fact that commanders were generally in their positions for political and monetary gain. This plays towards my idea of using what we can get, but not swearing loyalty because that just binds us in ways we might not need down the line. Also, we are the youngest commander, we are probably a bit naive in the large scheme of things, but naivety helps us because it gives us drive to do great things for people. We haven't noticed anything exactly wrong with the way our nation is governed, but I bet the deeper we delve the thin veneer of order will be torn down.

    Oh c'mon now laddie. We are being civil here. No snide/snarky comments are needed to be made about people. Just refer back to the first few threads. We are an up and coming commander with a history that says we have great things in store for us. Why would we have to rely on extra-dimensional beings for these great things. We are a commander, and every problem presented to us should have a viable solution we provide.

    Also, has anyone considered dressing our men up in different colors and what not to make them blend in with the mercs to reinforce them. I kind of don't want to leave the mercs by themselves to make sure the other end is secure. Why not see if we can find a branching tunnel to get a legion to wait in and have a scout/runner group be watching to tell them to march once the caravan comes so we have a marching fully formed legion behind with the mercs as well to pincer the caravan.

    It looks like a perfect ambush area. Have the mercs meet them, and block off the tunnel with their units. If they wonder why no one else is there, say they're out raiding/on patrol or whatever and then our units spring out to hit em from all sides.

If we get them into an ambush position, they know they're going to die and I'm willing ot bet they'd accept a deal where they leave alive if they stop helping the rebels.

    You watch the caravan roll in through the eastern tunnel, on the right a batallion of humans in full platemail, all of them wielding spiked maces and heaters. On the left is another unit of human mercenaries, these equipped with surecoats over mail, combat axes and kite shields. Leading the moer heavily armored mercenaries is a woman, a striking elf to be exact. She is garbed in bright orange robes, accented with black. Over each eye she has tattooed the icon of Lamynus. In one hand she holds a steel torch embossed with rubies and topaz... clearly an arcane device; in the other she holds a sickle. This woman is clearly the leader of the column, and seems on edge the moment the caravan stops in the courtyard.

    actually, Pompeius has it right. Hardly any Lacertans or Dwarves are able to gain full citizenship, most of them, save the extremely exceptional, are Plebeians (most of the rights, but not all of them, harsher taxes... legal second class citizens), and even more still are indentured servants, and their sub-human taxes come out of their work towards ending their status as indentured servants. They are pissed off with good reason really... and Lacertans have a MUCH harder time in this regard than dwarves

    The mercs should work towards blocking the tunnel while keeping the elf woman occupied with small chatter I suppose. Otherwise it might be time for us to bust out and be all surprise on her.

    I agree, that is bad that their leader is already slightly aware. I'm even tempted to say RIDDLE THAT ELVEN WENCH WITH ARROWS but I digress, there is probably some kind of protection she has around her. You never know though.

    She is probably one of the "wives" I'm assuming. Also, as soon as she is dead or she resisted, she will either try to make a retreat or laugh at the meager forces she is facing. I'm for waiting to let the mercs take the brunt of the damage then moving our legions in.

    "NOW!!!" you bellow, and your aren't disappointed by the results, as you charge through the doors with the Warlords you see Cornelius' Legionary Batalion punch out man sized holes where there were once windows in their wall, leaping out of the keep into formation, leaving the heavy mercenary unit with no choice but to fight or be run down. A devastating volley of arrowfire rips through the lighter mercenary unit as your mercenaries prepare for the charge. You can hear Kyria let loose a whoop of exhiliration, and see a nearly constant stream of bolts spewing forth from one of the windows her rangers are assigned to. You can hear Cornelius shouting his men aside as he move towards the sorceress, determined to kill the wench before she burns any of his men. A blur of black and crimson streaks past you as Finian hurls himself towards the lighter unit of enemy mercenaries. You figure you'll have enough time to get one order to your mercs before they are committed to battle.

    As you see Finian crash into the light mercenaries, a wordless cry of wrath on his lips, Collin cursing and charging to aid him, you hear a horrible crack off to your right. You wheel your head in time to see Cornelius on the ground, his shield split in twain, crimson cloak smoldering under his armor. He rolls to his right, narrowly avoiding another blast of fire, then barely catching a sickle slash aimed at his exposed neck, but his sword is knocked wildly out of position... you break into a sprint to aid your commander. You will defend your men, no matter the cost.

    "No you daft ninnies, keep firing until the battalions hit them! Those were the Commanders express orders!"

    The elven elementalist finally lands a blow on Cornelius' arm, her sickle slicing through the platemail as if it were butter, leaving a deep gash in his shield arm. the she-elf begins launching a jet of flame from her scepter, further damaging the shield-arm and scorching his left cheek... but before she can further damage your captain, the mighty roar of an Uursan catches her attention. She dives out of the way, launching a pair of fireballs at the onrushing cavalry, bursting one Uursan into flames, and immolating a different rider. Much to your dismay, the thick armor and sturdy weapons do not fold to Jaynes charge as easily as raiders, a second Uursan is downed, its leg clearly broken, the rider does his best to defend his wounded companion; but after four enemy soldiers he to is brought low by the enemies maces.

    As she rises you shot to her "Come and test the might of your whore goddess against a Commander of the Degnarian Legion and see how long your parlor tricks last."

    the elf replies defiantly "I have already bested one of your Empires captains and found him wanting. Perhaps you will prove to be more amusing... let us dance then human."

    As the elf charges you, she spews a gout of flame, shaped to the face of a dragons head, it envolops your shield arm, the whole limb spasming in paincausing you to drop the shield and nearly trip over it. The elf follows up by placing a deep gash in your right leg, a jet of blood spewing forth. Silently you remind yourself that this pain is nothing compared to that of losing a friend, before bringing your burnt arm around to smash a mailed fist into the elfs head. She is utterly shocked that you would use such a horribly burnt limb to strike. As she rolls away from the follow-up slash with your sword and gets up, you taunt her "Your as ugly as the ass on an Uursan and your breath reeks like Aurachnaspecus cunt!" she screams in rage and hurls herself at you again, her ruby eyes seemingly ablaze.

    You spin your blade in a quick ark, attempting to knock the scepter from the elves hand, and get your blade turned red-hot for your troubles, the suddenly superheated blade goes flying from your hands, forcing you to duck beneath the next slash of the sickle. Your wounded leg seizes up for a moment as you pick your rapidly cooling blade back up "Mark me Raynha" you mutter to yourself, blade now ready...

    Arrows once again lash out from the battlements surrounding the courtyard as the light mercenary unit breaks. You have no idea what the status of Collin and Finian are, as you are a bit pre-occupied at the moment.

    You attempt to hack off the elfs arm, you fail... however it feels as if something alters your follow-through, and you punch the elf in the side of her jaw with your swords pomel. The elf is sent sprawling, she spits out a few teeth and a spray of bolld before taunting "That dumb wench Raynha will do you no good here."

    You ignore the elfs taunt shouting out "JAYNE!! THE DESERTERS!!!" before returning your attention to the elf, who is rapidly gathering herself.

    As the elf rises you body slam into her, sending both of you to the ground, you stradling her, bother of her hands loose their grip when she hits the ground with your weight on top of her. You immideatly begin pomeling her once beautiful face, alternating fists, not caring about the searing pain you feel every time you move your left arm, every time that same fist adds more lacerations to the elfs face... this is what she gets for threatening your men. You are vaugly aware of the Warlords rushing past you; the sound of weapons clattering to the ground and men shouting their surrender and pleading for mercy. As you rise from the now uncoscious elf, her face a bloody mess, her midriff bruised horribly from where you sat atop her, gashes in her stomach from where your plates shifted and cut.

    Take her arcane object from her and have her bound. Place her in a tent alone but have guards outside with order to kill her if she manages to escape.

    Check on our wounded/our arm/Finian and Cornelius and make sure the surrendering mercs have their weapons taken from them. Let's check what goodies might be in the caravan other than supplies.

    No no no. We have her unconscious now. No need to kill her at this point. After all we went through, it'd be a waste to just kill her like that.
    >> Centurion 10/11/10(Mon)01:56 No.12403942
    NOOOOOO way are we leaving her alone. Guards are inside the damn tent but as far from her as possible. Give her a blindfold in addition to the bindings, no need to risk having her aiming fireballs without hand gestures.

    We don't know she's a proven fanatic to be fair. We just know she worships one of the evil gods and in theory we could argue she's dead if she goes back anyways since that evil earth god doesn't sound like someone who would tolerate allies that have failed him against his foes.

    Do NOT kill her. She is useful. We may be doing things for a good cause, but Justinian also seems to me being the end justifies the means kind of guy. I mean we just wailed on an elf woman's face till she was unconscious. We can use torture if necessary. Her goddess will leave her now that she is useless to her.
