"No love, it was the elves that almost killed our race not humans, these men kill our enemies, have you not heard the old saying, we should let them live, give them orders to give to their leader and start a diplomatic mission. A strong man can win a fight, a smart man can make the fight win itself"

Also tell them about the elves. Exaggerate the dangers some. This should cause some tasty fear and help make them more interested in helping us.

How about telling the truth for a change?

"The surrounding elf villages are on high alert and heavily armed because they were recently ransacked by us. You should try other villages."

Every little bit of exaggeration helps.

The truth here can only help our case, if they know the elves fear us, then they know better not to mess with us, and our reputation grows.

Hm, this is a tough one.

They seem like a good opportunity to get some armed goons to help us out.  If we could break the time spell early and re-arm them once we break a deal, we could use them to overpower a larger group of elves.  Then we could all walk away with the loot we want.  (possibly in larger amounts than previously hoped)

We tell them the truth. We just make the elves sounds more dangerous than they are. (If they note our deception, we can say we were trying to dissuade them from what we felt was a suicide mission, without telling much of a lie.)

Propose this plan to them: they 'bloody' themselves up a bit to look wounded, and 'flee' to the elf settlement, claiming that they were attacked by night trolls and that they managed to wound a few before escaping - thus encouraging the elves to send out a patrol to try to finish off the weakened night troll group, ideally.

If the elves do send out a patrol, we'll strike once they've left, and the humans can strike from inside if an opportunity presents itself.

If the elves do not send the patrol, we'll attack at night and have the humans, as with the other plan, do some backstabbing.

We'll offer them half the prisoners captured in the raid.

Interesting and potentially good plan. Also, new sentencing to death method: Eaten alive by night trolls.

I have a nice little long-term plan for us:

1. Boost relations with human race.
2. Manipulate humans into disparate, yet similar nations.
3. Ensure all nations are founded on cruelty and oppression. Good rule of thumb; the more the leader is like Stalin, the better.
4. Offer our services as a... dumping ground for political prisoners.
5. Never go hungry again!

Sounds like a nice long-term plan...okay, "nice" is a poor word to describe it...

Effective maybe?  Sounds like an effective plan but instead of creating multiple cruel and oppressive nations, why not create one really powerful cruel and oppressive nation with us at the head of it either as a ruler or high official/adviser.

Read your Evil Overlord List and study your Tarquin. There are some important lessons about being a villain there.
