Baron Padraig Ailil calls together the Fianna under Banson, the Unseelie Court, the Wendigo under Ice, Nemed, Itonkwa, and the newly-arrived Red Talons for a War Council. Rhett cannot attend, obviously, but there is a ghoul in a business-suit wearing a Bluetooth sitting at the bar.
He says, “this will be brief, I believe. We now know that the Archmage Unagilis intends to destroy most of humanity, and in so doing, he will probably slay the Totem Wendigo and unleash a terrible Welsh dragon on the survivors. We know his actions have thrown all reality here out of kilter, and that hordes of unlikely beasts roam the earth, some of which are straight out of Ancient Wales, while others look to be horrible, horrible mutants. We now suspect his new ally, Queen Catherine, to be a 1500 year old True Faerie, probably freshly restored to her true power. Evidently she is married to some awful Vampire thing too and is trying to bring it to Arcadia, my homeland. As if this isn’t enough they have apparently enslaved the local Indian priesthood and their pet giant monster hell birds as well as possibly thousands of masked assassins. Now that we finally know what we’re up against, I feel our options are actually fairly simple.
There are three remaining hell birds, controlled by three remaining wizards. We have to kill the three wizards to have any hope of dealing with the rest. Banson and the Fianna have already offered to pursue the Archmage Lelooska, master of the creature known as the Crooked Beak of Heaven, reputed to be the strongest of the birds. I want it known that I consider this to be the basest grandstanding and do not applaud it (Banson grins here). Ice Heart Frost Slave and the Wendigo have already offered to pursue the Archmage Tsungani, master of the Great Raven, for some religious reasons which are obscure to me (Ice growls here). As we don’t believe we can effectively assault Unagilis himself at this point, the archmage Shona-hah remains, who wields the power of a creature called the Splitter of Skulls. He is supposed to be the weakest of the three but the most dangerous to humans. There are, of course, many other things we can be doing, but striking at their heavy artillery presently seems to be our best course of action. Of our remaining fellowship, I would ask for volunteers for this task, and I myself would suggest the Storm Crow Trinity to lead the expedition and assemble the team they see fit. Now I encourage volunteerism as well as discussion of the plan. I ask for our senior members to stay until such questions are answered. Thank you for your time.”

Raven is also expected to spy upon the Crusher of Men and see if it might be possible to remove him from the Compact or perhaps assassinate him.
