Your done now though! You can post with the rest of us, and get into deep discussion and/or silly debates! Welcome!
This is a good update. Though I do see something happening now that I hadn't considered before. It makes sense that you wouldn't necessarily have to go through the tower to get to the dungeon, but you still have to divide your forces.
Jack's plan is actually a good one, dragon's can't go down anyway, might as well use them. Even if the kings not in there, if the tower goes down, the units up top have been preserved. it's that or sit around, so there's no reason NOT to attack the tower.
Except for the one, though I think it might have happened anyway: Trem's going in. He already has superior numbers and leadership: If he peeks in and sees that the croakamancer is gone, then he's stupid NOT to attack the garrison. Kill everything in there, so GK doesn't have it anymore. And with no Wanda in sight, he can make sure there's no bodies left on either side for her to use. Her Heavy's are then gone, which makes the odds of a rush on everything else better for multiple ways: he could split his forces and attack from the "back way" and the direct route via the tower at the same time, end it in the dungeon. Or at least make a clean break for it right out the front door.
Of course, either way this could well mean that we are at last going to see the last stand of everybody's favorite redhead. But it serves her right, being all rude and pushing jack like that (It looks to me like she quite literally shouldered her way into the conversation).
Amidst all this though? What I'd really like to see is a text update for Ossamer in all this, see what he's thinking. The slab of beef has been surprisingly compelling since he died.
Edit: additional thought: If I had a outspoken subordinate who was also quite persuasive who had said before that things would go bad, and now things were in fact going bad, I'm not so sure I'd leave him unobserved in a room full of important folks right at this moment. Don perhaps should have taken/made this call in the room: Talking softly, maybe behind the throne, but certainly not completely out of earshot.
