Scott, welcome back. In the mean time the list and p&p site are back up
as well. Hope all stays this way.
"Arawn makes a fair point. Although I see no reason why the Brain I saw
would be a fake, the fact that they must be aware of us and waiting
reduces our chances. If they can spring a surprise from a different
location that could be disastrous.
On the other hand, if the Brain and portal are genuine, that gives the
Brain a supply of new warriors through the portal. Delay in closing that
portal could be a disaster as well.
We move up these stairs as a group. Fremea flies up to scout the stairs
ahead of us. Please stay out of sight of the Brain, so stay a few metres
aside or above the cave opening. I would like the Mental Shield thing on
the forward group at least, or all of us that might enter the cave if
possible. Anyhting else that can help, Battle Mind, Speed?
When we get just below the cave opening on the stairs, Kell can send in
the elementals first, and other help that we can bring if available.
Their task would be to attack the brain. Then we rush in to assist, and
the plan will be fluid from that point I guess.
Farseeker, Arawn, Raban, with myself, will you make the forward group?
Attack the Vong guards first and open the entrance for the others.
Chion, would you stand by to get us all out of there if this fails
miserably? Kell, Fremea, up for the task? if Fremea spots something,
above, or on the stairs, we decide quickly based on what it is, but move
down and meet it in the open seems the best strategy.
Arawn, It is probably not he best of plans, but the risk of delay is
great as well. Strong objections, then please voice them now. Else I am
willing to receive that Mind Shield.
And for your safety (addressing the girl) stay at the back of the group,
but do not trail more than a few metres behind. I am not usre it is safe
down here or I would suggest you stay. Stay close, stay silent, and I am
sure we will get you out of here."
