Except we hadn’t been able to break away from planning, and just going by his participation in our exchange of texts and calls, Grue hadn’t managed to rest much.
So they’re like a D&D group, constantly messaging each other about the next session.
It’s kind of adorable.
We’d arranged plans, discussed priorities, sent messages to Coil, tracked down information from our various underlings, and in the doing, we’d managed to hash out a general game plan.
Sweet. Any chance you’re going to share any part of that plan with me before I get to watch it unfold?
Not that that would be a particularly good idea considering certain narrative tropes regarding plans and the sharing of them with the audience.
So is this the setting of this chapter? Their D&D group chat?
Or maybe a complication is about to arise before they even start executing the plan? Perhaps one that Taylor can’t tell the others about or something?
With a hundred problems we needed to handle, we’d agreed the most important thing was to deal with the most inevitable ones.
They’re just gonna go ahead and deal with the apocalyptic threat in this Arc, no big deal.
Okay, so maybe that’s not one of their immediate problems. :p
There was no point in working out a complicated and involved attack plan against Coil if we didn’t wind up fighting him. There was a point in dealing with the Chosen; they were bound to attack us at some point, regardless of how future events unfolded. Better to take the fight to them.
This sounds a lot like the way Dinah’s aid normally allows Coil to lay his plans. It also sounds a lot like chess.
So attacking the Chosen is a priority. Alright. I wonder who’s their leader now, if they’ve filled the spot. Cricket, perhaps?
