    Agrenus breaks the silence "If they have arcanists, they will use them to keep their camp secure until they are ready for us, no doubt.History has shown the Desert Lords to be amongst the most adaptive of the Uurlanthi Lords."

    Renol heaves a sigh "It is late, we are better off letting our men rest. Come morning we can harass their aerial knights with our own flying cavalry wings, while the rest of us brace for the first probe. Justinian, I wouldnt be surprised if they sent a force to attempt to bypass us immediately as well."

    Don't think there's much we can do until the morning. I assume we have scouts trying to keep an eye on any force that might be bypassing us - aerial scouts using the night vision paste? Can't see how else we're going to scout any bypassing force.

    Only other idea might be to send out Blackbird and his people but I imagine they need some rest.

    You sigh as well "We will be unable to do much of anything until morning, or our foes make their move. All I can really recommend at the moment would be a fight attack from our aerial cavalry."

    Salvius nods his head "Would you reccomend your own wings, or would you rather I send some of my wings?"

    Renol takes a drink from the cup of water he poured after being called to the huge tent " I would suggest we send Vibius' flyers, both to keep the surprises Justinians have held in reserve a bit longer." he sets the cup down "And, I would not be surprised if there were to be a force attempting to slip past our line already, which means it would be best for Justinians entire force to be ready to move with very little notice."
    >> Maximus 07/03/11(Sun)22:04 No.15465380
    I can agree with Renol's plan for now. Perhaps get some of our birds in the air for scouting purposes to spot anyone trying to get past us. No point blindly going out to look for a bypassing force and since we're so outnumbered, we're left sitting here for now.
    >> Anonymous 07/03/11(Sun)22:10 No.15465442

    (New to the whole quest thread thing, but I'll give my two cents, if its cool. It looks like the entire place is something of a trap if you walk into it and fight on the enemy's terms. Especially if they are used to such terrain and have elements amongst their force suited to ambush and hiding out in the tall grass. However, if you have a disciplined and fast moving force you could use, you could perform a false retreat to draw out a portion of their forces, and then take them out on terrain that they did not choose.)

    >> Starshadow 07/03/11(Sun)22:25 No.15465592
    So Venol's plan is a go. Do some scouting in the morning just after dawn, keeping a watch for enemy troop movement.

    Before dawn our valks can use nightvision to do some scouting too, and get a look at the enemy camp. Fly as high as possible.

    If a target presents itself, rain some crossbow bolts onto it, but DO NOT descend and don't let it slow them down.
    >> Maximus 07/03/11(Sun)22:28 No.15465627
    Our valks don't need to get that close to their camp. Blackbird already gave us a good idea on what kind of troops they have and all we need to know is their location and if they're sending men out. I would prefer if they stay as far away from the camp as possible so they don't have to use the repeaters just yet. Hell, I don't want them to engage at all at this point since if any of them die, the desert lords might get a repeater they can fool around with.
    >> Pax !uGYNBMPzOs 07/03/11(Sun)22:34 No.15465708
    You nod "I agree with your plan, Malcius" you reply, even though it is the mans request, the informality is strange to you. "Though, perhaps it would be better if the scouting wing were to use some moonseye paste. It has been a very short time since Blackbird and his raiders returned, but my medical staff has become quite skilled at making the stuff."

    Renol raises an eyebrow "Assuming that is the stuff that allowed you to earn your namesake, I would be glad to accept your offer, Justinian."

    Agrenus yawns "It would seem that that is the extent of our planning until morning. I will see you gentlemen then." at that, the white-haired dwarf stands, and strides from the tent." The other commanders voice similar opinions and leave as well, leaving you alone in the tent, realising that having Jayne around to keep you from tiring when you must be awake has... altered, your sense of what is devastatingly tired, and when sleep simply cannot wait.

    You decide that you are not as tired as your peers, and head back out into camp to talk with Vi. You find her, in her own tent, idly growing a small tree, currently, into the shape of a rather viscous looking dagger. "Justinian!" she exclaims as you walk in, not bothering to pull her robes back up over her upper body, as she is noticeably sweating from crafting the dagger. "Did you need something, or are you just visiting?" she asks, wiping her brow with her robe.

    You smile, and drop into her only other stool "Simply keeping my promise from before. What is on your mind?"

    She shakes her head, before placing her hands a few inches from the growing plant and replying "We realize that we are the only member of your... retinue, that does not earn their place."

    You shake your head "Is that truly all? There is no rush, or need for you-"

    Vi cuts you off "So, we took one of the stray branches from the portions of Crestus Syptionus that had grown out of control when he killed the other hive, and we are making a blade from it. We may not be able to fight, but we can still pay our keep. We... we have learned that much about how society works to know that we DO owe that much.

    And how would you like to do so, Vi? There are many ways for you to do so. Some of which are not immidiate or violent in nature. You could teach in my academy, be an advisor for the group that will be hunting Loukys, assist the rebuilding of the temples by becoming a priestess of Nyetini, or even becoming a singer.

    You shake your head "You owe me nothing, Vi. It was I who convened with Nyetini to see you released from your life as a hive. That is why I took it upon myself to see that you are properly equipped to deal with the world as it is. If you wish to repay me, I will not stop you, but know that it is not necessary at all... and that there are alternatives to crafting weapons."

    Vi stops her work, the dagger now closer to the size of one of Sansas long-knives. The former Loukys hive turns to face you, a bead of sweat falling from her nose, and another from her bust "How else could we... serve, you?" she asks, pausing both in confusion, and most likely in search of the proper word, though if her face is any indication she did not like the one she settled on.

    You smile warmly "You could aid in the medicae tent, if you wish to continue to travel with the maniple. You could teach at my academy, and, once it has been moved to its new loacation you could advise the Loukys Hunters as well, or simply do the latter. Nyetini indicated to me that she would be more than receptive of you if you wished to server her as a Priestess, which would help me, as it would mean that the Temple of the Ten would be completed all the sooner."

    The woman ponders silently for a while, before responding "We, we will travel with you until your new academy and barracks for the Loukys Hunters is prepared. We, we are not sure how we will be able to be of the most help until then however... our knowledge of human, dwarf and lacertan bodies is not the same as that of loukys bodies are."

    "I know it may be difficult for you but perhaps you could try to overcome your discomfort of Laelith.

Until you feel you have learned enough, though, I will always be here for any questions you will have and help you in any way I can."

    Then I would say give her a hug and ask about the dagger she's made so far.

    Eh, I don't like that idea. If Vi moves on anyone it should be of her own accord. We shouldn't try to set up anything with her with anyone except maybe us.

    But yes, we can tell her we care about her and be friendly with her. I wouldn't mind her being a concubine and would even like it but she should decide it's what she wants. We shouldn't force it on her.

    And honestly I think there's a good chance of it.

Once the sword is done, we will add toxins...

    You chuckle "You may be more difficult to tire out, but you can still overwork yourself. Do be careful, Vi." you reply, as you rise and walk from her tent. the rest of the night passes fairly uneventfully, as nights go for you. With Laelith studying, and Kyria working on her runes, it is only you, Jayne and Sansa... not that you are complaining.


    The next morning starts quite early, as a runner from Commander Renol awakens you, though Sansa and Jayne springing up as quickly as you sends the poor soldier into a deep blush. Once you reach the Central Command Tent, those same two women in tow, the meeting is just begining, all three commanders and their aides hunched over a rough sketch. "Justinian, I do apologize if my man interrupted anything, but we need your input as well."

    Salvius chuckles, shaking his head "Malcius' man got a very good look at our foes camp. From the look of it, they had some earth elementalists create a series of walls of sorts, using stone spikes of varying height. They erected several spires as well... most likely using the same technique, as I recall you bragging that you could create spikes of that size on our ride here."

    "Is the cordoned off area..."

    "Yes" Agrenus interrupts you "Zales brought their slaves."

    "And, it would seem that we were right about our foes moving early today." the turban-clad commander adds "A detachment of rabble is moving across the field, and a combined force of soldiers is gathering at the rear entrance to the enemy camp." All present turn to look at the man, confused. "My pegasi riders have the watch this morn, they signaled me as I made my way here."

    No steel rain yet. We need to thin their numbers first. Save it for the second-to-last FUCK YOU before we curb stomp their shit.

    It's mostly rabble coming at us. So it's either a distraction or probe into our tactics. I'd say limit our use of our repeaters and no steel rain for now. Let's not tip our hand too much although I imagine one of the other maniple will engage them at this point.
    >> Maximus 07/04/11(Mon)01:36 No.15467486
    In reference to why I asked on what kind of numbers they had at the camp - it might be worth trying to push to their camp and destroying the outer earth walls with an earth elementalist if only parts of their force have arrived and we have the time to do that. See if we can get the slaves out of there since I imagine Eago might appreciate that.
    >> Anonymous 07/04/11(Mon)01:45 No.15467576
    If we can manage that then more than just Eago would appreciate it.

    Plus, we hate slavery.

    I think they know about our repeaters by know.

    The enemy have numerical advantage in air cavalry. We need to even up the odds fast, otherwise it will be the enemy dropping crap on us, not the other way around.

    I say:

    1. Loan the other commanders some of our siege equipment, if they need them.

    2. Offer them air support with our air cavalry as well.

    3. If they decline air support, maybe some sort of high-altitude air raid into their main base while they probe our lines. If not steel rain, then just drop oil jars and fire arrows.

    4. As previously agreed, our maniple hangs back and catches any enemy forces that try to push through or bypass our lines.

    5. Depending on how many elementalists/arcanists the enemy deploys, we might have to send our elementalist corp to reinforce our front lines.

    You sigh "Do you have any idea on the numbers at their camp, or the forces we can assume are martialing to attempt to move past our own forces during the battle?"

    Renol shakes his head "Unfortuanately we do not, Justinian. My best guess would be that the force is no larger than you own. These slaves, if Blackbird is to be believed, and, as he was quite accurate with his troop count I see no reason why he wouldnt be, are mostly generational slaves, brought from home. Such folk believe that it is their rightful place to die at the bidding of their masters."

    You sigh "Now would be a bad time to utilize the iron bolts and arrows I had prepared to be dropped from our aerial cavalry then. Perhaps harass them with our own cavalry, and let them die on our traps."

    Agrenus shakes his head "It is a shame to waste the asset on them, but it is better than having our soldiers butcher slaves."

    Jayne steps forward to interject "Commanders, the enemy has griffons, and as you have already expressed that you would rather Justinians flyers remain with his forces, to ensure his efforts are successful, how will your own flying cavalry deal with them?"

    Salvius shrugs "My own griffon riders and flying cavalry will likely be engaged in a more traditional engagement above the slaves. It will no doubt be over by the time the main Uurlanthi force is ready to move. I doubt my men could be properly trained to use repeaters in the time we have, which is no doubt running short."

    Also, Raynha might be willing to put up some free aid if we are rescuing the slaves. Or we can save up the brownie points for later, in case any of our captains get wounded again.

    >are mostly generational slaves, brought from home. Such folk believe that it is their rightful place to die at the bidding of their masters."

    Don't think they'll take help from us. It's sad, but we may just have to give the usual "stand up for your right to not die" speech and hope for the best.
    >> Taffer 07/04/11(Mon)02:01 No.15467745
    OK so no slave rescue. Fine. I think we leave Kyria's regiment here to help with the anti-air and help the others cope with their new repeaters. Then lets go scout for any flankers.
    >> Pax !uGYNBMPzOs 07/04/11(Mon)02:17 No.15467924
    You sigh "It is a shame that anyone could be so degraded as to think their rightful place in the world is as property, but it cannot be helped. If needed I will offer the aid of myself, my own rangers, and any other assets you feel necessary to ensure the aerial battle is a success. Aside from that, I will keep my own maniple on standby to deal with any possible flanking enemies, or any foes attempting to bypass us entirely."

    The other commanders nod in agreement, though it is Agrenus who replies "Will you be bringing your mage along as well? I would also like to request that it be commander Renols forces to deal with any slaves that make it through the trap fields. My maniple is ill-suited to receiving any manner of charge, and it is more... humane, for legionairy battalions to deal with such a force than it is for berserkers and warlords to do so."

    If nothing else, we can give them the freedom of choice. Liberty, or Loyalty. Even if they choose to fight, I feel better about the deaths of loyal servants then I would a rabble of terrified unfortunates.
    >> Starshadow 07/04/11(Mon)02:19 No.15467960
    Sounds like a plan. Lets roll with it and see what happens when they arrive.
    >> Anonymous 07/04/11(Mon)02:21 No.15467975
    A waste. We would lose valuable men freeing almost nobody.

    I would prefer to keep Lena with us. Better for her to stay with her "family" since Wulf is away. Keep her more grounded and less prone to do those heroic sacrifices that can be so problematic.
    >> tactical routine omicron !/tOwVz0x0k 07/04/11(Mon)02:23 No.15468002
    "I will be, yes. Lena is, until an actual unit has been trained, my sole source of mage hunting aside from myself."
    >> Pax !uGYNBMPzOs 07/04/11(Mon)02:32 No.15468083
    You nod in agreement "I will be, as she is my sole mage hunting asset until she finishes training the other mages I found in DragonsReach. Personally, I believe that this plan is quite solid, shall we set it into motion?"

    Renol and Agrenus both nod. Salvius replies "It could become rather bloody for my maniple, if they begin flanking attacks immediately, but yes, I agree with the plan."

    At that, the assembled commanders and their aides disperse to their own personal command tents, to see that their maniples are ready for the coming slaughter.

    >well, its gettin to be that time of the night, and if I go much further we'll be in a battle, so I'll call it here.

    Just be cautious when dealing with them, they might place hidden elite among the slave rabble, either to hide their best until they strike, or to give them thatelement of suprise.
