Gift Foghorn, work on the plan some with him, talk with/at Cherlyn. Anything else?

I actually just thought of something.  If we get a lot of cheap expendable people to attack the town, then that could be our distraction.  We wouldn't actually expect them to win the fight but while the elves think they have an invasion on their hands, we can sneak in with an elite task force and kill that troll or nab that elf or whatever it is we need to do.

That would be quite costly, and not very subtle. People would know something was going down when we recruited a small army of mercanaries, they may also figure out that they're just a hopeless distraction. It would be easy to sow spies and informants in our ranks.
We could open up the box of boogeymen right in the middle of town, but we're not really sure what would happen.

Fire and some gunpowder can do the exact same thing if you are looking for a distraction.

Too bad we don't know about gunpowder.

We do have magic though, and a skilled fire mage could work on the same principles.

Regarding the upcoming raid, there are a few considerations.

Firstly, we have a fairly large family now, with correspondingly large sustenance needs. We should maximize the potential for bringing captives back alive to eat during our attack. If we could acquire or craft a sleep or paralysis poison to coat our weapons with, that would be ideal for that purpose.

Secondly is our new ally, Leaf. This is an opportunity to further expand his influence over the community - first by participating in the defense of the town during the raid ( during which he will 'kill' several illusionary - made with dark manipulation - night trolls), then by successfully 'negotiating' the peace settlement with Foghorn. That peace can be used to our advantage, as part of the settlement could be a weekly tithe of wealth and victims.

We will kill them with peace. Strangle them with it. And they will thank Leaf all the while.

I was under the impression that Everpine was our target.

If it isn't, we should attack Everpine instead.

Yeah Sorry about the lack of updates this weekend. I'm busy with my maptools games and housework during the weekend. Might be able to get an update tonight. Here is a quick guide to the elven settlements for those confused.

Oakworshpied: The largest settlement. Highly progressive and cosmopolotian. Lots of humans and even a fair few dwarves live here. Vindel (And his love intrest) lives here. This is the retreat Foghorn wants you to attack.

Everpine: A smaller backwoods settlement that prides itself of traditional elven values. Non elves are not welcome here. Leaf lives here. All of your consorts (except Alice) have ties to Everpine.

Dawnmaiden: You have yet to visit, but this retreat is supposedly a busy market for all sorts of supernatural beings and goods. Nobody is likely to investigate your disguise here, as dark mages and lesser night creatures make up a good percentage of business for the town. Cherlyn, despite being a consort, was able to spend her platinum bar here and buy goods.

I'm now wondering, seeing as its full of night monsters, would anybody notice a few missing people from Dawnmaiden?

^ I would be careful about abducting people from Dawnmaiden specially that there is a powerful vampire mage there.
