Aredin smiles hand on the pommel of his daiklave, "I don't mind taking the front, I'm still recovering memories of my old fighting art but foot soldiers shouldn't be too much trouble. Though, having Viktor pilot a ship carrying archers and slingers would definitely help secure a solid advantage... Heaven, are you going with the stealth team or do you have something else in mind?"

Darian frowns a bit, then lets out a sigh. "I am hardly the bull in the china shop, but I am not the quietest person in the world. I would do better in a stand-up fight. With any luck, we can avoid a battle but I feel that we won't be able to. Let us unleash the Dragon Kings on the goblin forces outside, and when Filial Wisdom steps forward, we will take him down. He will not be able to withstand the combined might of the Circle."
 
Sirocco was torn, on the one hand, she had a chance to fight close up with another Exalt, and be able to defend her friends, and on the other, she could fight alongside Dragon Kings, and she wasn't ready to make that choice yet...
 
Viktor grimaced, thinking about Relza's anger being fully directed at himself. Yeah, perhaps blowing up some of her skyships is not the best idea...not if I want to continue on amongst the living. The Twilight nodded in response to Aredin's suggestion of transporting ranged combatants and providing an aerial platform for them to fight from. "That seems like a sound plan."

Darian nods. "Between the Dragon Kings, the Celestial Lions we talked to, and the Exalts, the few hundred men and goblins outside have no real chance. My only question is, what can we expect from Filial Wisdom and the Abyssal that works with him? How dedicated is the Abyssal to the Goblin King? If faced with an unwinable situation, what will his response be? Rrrgh! Too many questions, and not enough answers. I suppose that all we have to go with is our best shot, and see what happens. Aysik? Leeayta? When can the two of you be ready to move with your forces?"
 
With zero regards to the proceedings, it was as if a switch went off in her mind, and Sirocco's voice booms "Of those who seek to confront Filial Wisdom, which ones plan on engaging him in melee? I need to know so we can see who I'll be better served at helping. I would rather be in the thick of it, despite my desire to fight alongside the Dragon Kings or in defending Heaven from a great distance. That way I can bring the most good, but defending you from his attacks, for as long as my essence can sustain it." She was careful at first not to watch Heaven, but her monologue went on, she couldn't help but take a glimpse, hoping she didn't disappoint him.

Heaven perks his head up, and looks to Aredin. After hearing Sirocco speak, he couldn't help but smile. He rested a hand on her shoulder and squeezed gently in comforting manner.

"I... believe I have something for the goblin forces. So long as number of the Dragon Kings can watch my back while I work. I'm no tactician, but I know that Sirocco's strength would be of most use to all those facing Filial Wisdom directly, so she'll definitely go with that group, and hopefully what I have planned will offer enough of a distraction that they can make their way there without wasting their time in unnecessary combat."

He looks around the room, excited suddenly. "Okay, um, I need to see what we're dealing with. If the conditions are right, I could wipe most of their forces away before the real fighting starts."

Aysik lets out a snort. "Hell, if you have something up your sleeve that can do the trick, and will save lives on our side, by all means do it! I want to try to save my energies for dealing with Han-Tha, but that doesn't mean that I won't get into it with the Solar or the Deathknight if things come to that. All in all, I'd have to say that the bad guys are toast."
 
"Can't say I'm not relived to hear that." a grinning Annika said in response to Aysik's last statement.

"And I can't wait to see what you have planned." She added while looking at Heaven.

"I will take the front and confront the Goblin King. I can sustain a high level of power in combat fairly well, and we don't have much to go on when it comes to his personal capability. If you all have my back I think we will be fine." Aredin said, palm resting on the pommel of his blade. I still need to get better at getting through armor, but I'm getting the hang of things again.
