I'll go ahead and move in and engage Cultists 5, before the other army of cultists can tag team Ruprecht and/or I. Gathering my knights, Here is our plan. Silver Talon (Left flank) and Shadow Talon (right flank), wedge formation and hold back just a little. Empire Talon, Your are going to ride straight in, also wedge formation. Just before you engage, swing right and ride hard through their lines. Shadow Talon is right behind you to follow up. Ride straight through. Do not stop. Swig around and ride through again. Break their line. Silver Talon. They will expect you to hook and flank. Don't. Cross through from the left and ride hard, cavalry charge right between Empire and Shadow Talons, hitting them and ride through.
Letting the plan sink in, as well as the realization that the time for blood is now, "The time has come, for your nobility and might to be brought to bare. We are going to attack hard and fast, and hold until the job is done. Many of you follow the teachings of Iomedae or perhaps Gorum. I am told both have taken a keen interest in this. Watching what transpires here. And among you followers of certain Empyreal lords, who also have a stake in this. I know Ol' Dead Eye, crafter of the first weapons, who gave us the knowledge and skills so that we might defend ourselves is also well pleased that we have chosen to fight against the darkness. Way I hear it, Iomedae and Gorum have a wager going, to see just whose faithful in our army can strike the deepest blows. On whose lance can pierce the hart of the enemy's commander. I don't know about you, but I'm interested in seeing myself. . ."
Riding his Owlbear down the line, seeing that many of his army have been gathered from different groups. Some are faithful, others secular knights, some more mercenary, he calls out while riding, "You all know that in battle the man or woman to you left, to your right, and behind you is your brother. Is your sister. And has your back. No matter what. We all have our creeds and our calls to battle. For me, "I DO THIS FOR TALDOR!!!" But, as one, as we charge forth into the belly of the dragon, "FOR THE LIVING!!!"
"I can't hear you. And that means the enemy can't hear you. For the living!!!"
"Stay as one until you are close. Now lets roll out."
