I was under the impression that the call was concluded. The King conveyed his intentions, Yuri accepted the position, and that was that. Was there something else you wanted to discuss with him?
Well, there was this:

It's basically laughable to have a chief diplomat who has communications assets worse than either the King or Chief Warlord. He can't reasonably diplomance anyone like that, let alone seek out and talk with far-off potential allies. Resolving this with the King would be nice.
And I was rather thinking that at some point during the conversation I'd bring up the sticky issue of whom amongst Tod and Yuri is supposed to outrank one another, or if one does, on a day to day basis. Yes we're immune to orders and freed from the usual hierarchy, but rank and precedence is still important to know and many matters don't touch directly on either battle or diplomacy- or conversely might be said to involve both.
We seem to have timey-wimey balled our RP bit again and are describing events taking place at different times. Before this conversation, Tod apparently goes to where Junetta, Triage, and T. Coil are arguing over the prisoner and then decides in favor of letting Triage and Junetta handle them. After it, he has a talk with T. Coil that goes poorly, and then goes to check on the prisoners. He hears Wandereus talking about the elven information there and then goes to find Yuri again. The call to Zoltarus happens after everything settles down.
You left the question of if you wanted to lead the field force up in limbo in your last post, so in my post reacting to the information about the faeries, I assumed you either accepted or decided to give me an answer later as you appeared to like the idea. Sorry for the breach of RP etiquette.
Continuing the three-way conversation, "I'm willing to let you borrow it as needed, however, I request that you always return it to me soon after. The bonus to leadership it supplies currently useless to you." (Yuri doesn't have enhanced leadership and I asked earlier if I would need to take the last leadership special at level 6 to use the bracer to get to a bonus of 7. The answer was yes.) "I have plans to use one of its two charges later today, but feel free to use the other as you wish. King, there is also the option of using your Crown to set up three-way calls such as this one between Yourself, Yuri and any representatives you wish to talk to. This may even be the preferable option as having our ruler watching the talks would show a certain respect to whoever we're talking to."
You may also wish to respond to the information about the faeries. Tod tracks Yuri down and discloses the information with the potential ramnifications for the mission.

Actually, Will does have a small part already in the capture mission. If the capture team is to spend a night in the target hex, then they need protection. Since the protection can't come into the hex at the same time as the capture team, it rides the balrug in after the initial capture takes place. I was planning for Will to be a part of that.
