She started bluntly with "I will lead 4 hippipos and 3 loggators to take out the enemy stack to the southwest. Any volunteers for the others? My thoughts are that Lord Bull should probably lead his stack of gumps to take the bridge, Graf can get the ones to the north.
"Prince Chevy, if you merge your Guards with my three remaining loggators, they can back up Lord Mar on the bridge. Mar, your infantry will mount the Unipegataurs and go with Graf's stack. Commander Etna, With your units' high move we can afford to keep you in reserve this turn. Dagnabbit, you troops can go wherever you feel they would be most effective.
What an honor, to be given the first combat of such a grand campaign! Mar was originally upset that he would not be under Prince Ansom's command, but he was elated at the level of power the MCC wielded. "Jetstone will do it's job well and with honor, Princess Hippotyla."
