Prince Ansom: War council, we've now assembled our complete forces.

Prince Ansom: In a few turns, we will have eliminated Stanley the Plaid from the face of Erfworld.

I realize that an alliance this extensive is a hardship to all of our sides, but it can't be helped.

It will be worth it, to end him.

I want to make certain each of you knows your role in the overall plan.

Prince Ansom: Because of the low move of some of the siege engines[1] and other units, our caravan formation will take as many as five more turns to reach the city.

Prince Ansom: There is only one, tough road in to Gobwin Knob. It may be heavily defended. Indeed, I hope it is.

...I would rather face enemy forces in the open, than to pry them out of those defenses.

Prince Ansom: On the turn before we reach the city, all of the Marbit forces will attack Gobwin and Hobgobwin positions in the tunnels under the city.

This is a feint.

I hope the city will commit some Uncroaked units down there before we arrive.

Prince Ansom: On arrival, we will take a full turn to surround the city. This is not to prevent escape; we'll have their non-fliers bottled up.

But we don't know the weakest spot in the outer walls, so we will hit it from all directions and pour through the first breach we get.

Prince Ansom: Now. Elves.

We have eight different varieties in our company.

Prince Ansom: Shady Elves and Woodsy Elves...

I need your archers to cover the siege.

Prince Ansom: As soon as the breach opens I want the Eager Elves to go in first.

Eager Elf Warlord: Woo! Yes!

Prince Ansom: ...followed by the Luckless Elves and the Schlemiel Elves.

Luckless Elf Warlord: Aw, man.

Schlemiel Elf Warlord: I knew it.
