Region: The Hole To Hide In

Faith: "Current estimates put their numbers at... just over half a million, the majority of the enemy has already left and made their way to attack our front lines. If Esolda and a detachment of angels can draw enough attention in the center of the city, our ground forces would be able to enter much more easily. Here is some data based on reports from our infantry regarding the enemy."

She slides over a stone tablet, the details point to naval bombardment being the most effective weapon, with magic being second, and melee weapons being third. Firearms would be the ideal choice of course, but with visibility being the way it is they have been relegated to a secondary role. Riflemen would only shoot enemies that other soldiers were engaging in hand to hand combat with, or else blind firing into the mist whenever possible.

Reticence: "Individually they are as easy to kill as any other human, but the issue is in their speed and agility since they can close distances very quickly. Considering that Arcadia was home to around 700 million people if even only a quarter of that number was corrupted we would still be drowning in the enemy, thankfully alot of civilians were able to escape."

Captain Elinsore: "My team can provide reconnaissance on the city before or while Esolda's distractions. The Tseng Wuxin can provide further fire support with its missile batteries and guns. It's just a matter of dealing with poor visibility within the city."

Sergeant Yoon: "Captain, if I may, we have some MIDs in the equipment crates. If we were to find the M-frequency and E-count of these corrupted beings, we could calibrate the devices to identify hostiles within the fog."

Elinsore: "Good thinking Sergeant. Sword Saints, I would ask that we be able to study some of the deceased creatures. If they are indeed corrupted beings, I believe that we could target them through the smog with our identification devices."
