As Owen approaches, the redheaded gunslinger announces the arrival of the foreigner to his ka-mate, Susan. "Sai Owen, Sai Jhondak," Florent greets. In response to Owen's question, the gunslinger gives a solemn nod. "There is much you can do to help, I believe. If Jhondak is the chosen of King Grome, then perhaps he can bolster weak points in the walls or help to fortify buildings near the walls with stone roofs. Alternately, he could bless men to keep their morale high."
Susan measures Owen and Jhondak up, trying to consider what the best use of the two men might be. "Gunslinger," she says in a stern voice that seems to be full of conflicting emotions, "we think that their biggest advantages are their numbers and their mounts. An army of that size will need many supplies and as long as our ships are unharmed, we will have access to distant farms and the bounty of the sea. If their cavalry survives, however, they will be able to control the countryside." She nods to Florent, indicating that he should continue the discussion.
The redheaded man takes over, "One plan is to use the sewers under the city to get beyond the walls at night. If we can do so, we can launch nighttime raids on their cavalry and supply wagons. Perhaps we can also kill officers or their damn sorcerer. If you have the wish, you could venture into the sewers and help see which ones are still open and which have collapsed through the ages. We have scouts working with maps but the city hasn't fallen under siege in decades." Continuing, he adds: "Manpower is short all around: men are training, making weapons, crafting armor, smelting bullets, gathering scrap for those discs, helping Bron with his war machines, gathering fresh water from the rivers for a siege, working on the walls, fishing, stockpiling clean linens for the wounded, clearing buildings near the walls, digging trenches, and..."
Susan paces while Florent speaks, giving her the demeanor of a blonde wolf. Noting her impatience, Florent cuts himself off. "...well, tons more things. Anywhere you could help would be welcome." Nodding to Susan, he begins checking his weapons. "That's all for us tonight, I'm afraid. We have business on the other side of the walls." Smiling, he adds, "Susan's going to fetch the head of Medraut for what he did in the Granite Reaches..."
As Susan nods and departs from Owen and Jhondak's company, the red haired gunslinger bows dramatically and falls in step behind her.
