"It's a pleasure to meet you all, I'm reassured by your preparedness and general appearance. I expect this will go smoothly.
Having said this he turned his attention to Atlas, and the map on the table. This would be the first time he was able to examine it in full, but that wasn't of much concern. He was fully confident in his ability to come up with a suitable plan now that he had all of the information at his disposal. The map detailed the fledgling Shadow-Fall base and the area immediately surrounding it. All in all it covered about five square miles. The outpost was still quite small, directly in the center of the map, and actually very well fortified considering the fact that it was still being built. The first thing they'd have to breach was the perimeter wall. At this point in time it was still made up of natural materials, and that was why they needed to act fast. He had no idea when Shadow-Fall agents would begin imbuing it with whatever nonsense it was they had at their disposal. He scanned the map, taking in all of the information as quickly as possible. After only a matter of seconds he'd decided exactly what it was that needed to be done.
"As you can see, this wall is our first obstacle, but it isn't much of one. They're sure to have guards on duty, so we'll have to take their patrols into account. It shouldn't be difficult to observe them for a short time and determine where and when the best time to break through is. We want to get here as quickly as we possibly can once we're inside the perimeter."
He pointed to a specific place on the map as he said this. The base's armory. It was about one hundred feet from the wall. Not the wisest tactical decision on Shadow-Fall's part, but it played directly into his hand.
"I assume they'll have additional guards here, here, and here."
Once more he indicated where he was speaking about as he did so. The places he pointed to were the entrance of the armory, the entrance of the medical bay which lay directly across from the armory, and the small building nestled against the inside of the wall. He assumed this was a guard outpost, as there appeared to be an inner staircase that opened up on top of the wall.
"This will have to be timed very precisely depending on the habits of the guards, but what I want is this. Two men will drop from the wall and infiltrate the guard base, dispatch any guards inside, and attach this to their communications device."
He produced a small device from his pocket. Something he'd whipped up the night before.
"It will relay any communications the base may receive while we're in business inside of it to us, so that we can adjust if necessary. After that's accomplished make your way to the armory without being spotted. One man will be on the wall to take out the guards in front of the medical bay. It should be quite the simple shot, although it will need to be quick so as to take out multiple of them if necessary before there's a reaction. At the same time another of you and myself will skirt the eastern wall of the armory, then eliminate any guards that may be in front of it. Luckily there doesn't seem to be a vantage point from which they'll be able to spot us moving in. After the man on the wall has taken his shots he'll drop down here, and follow the same path."
"At this point, exempting complications, we should all be in the armory within two minutes of each other. Once we're inside we sabotage their weaponry, taking anything that may seem useful, or that necessitates further study. Of course, that won't leave them defenseless. They'll still have tricks up their sleeve."
Law was quite pleased with this bit of the plan, but before he moved on to the next stage he supposed it would be best to see if everyone was on the same page so far, and who would be taking on what job.
"That's step one. Before we move on, does anyone have any questions or comments regarding what I've just laid out? Also, you know your expertise better than I do. Who will be taking on what?"
