Lurry enters the Room and says "Sorry for my absence, It has been something since being surprised and taken.
And the first problem you have is Neliffs. I hate Neliffs. Can’t trust anyone with them around. Well, there are some immune to their effects, but not many. Redeemers can detect at first and eventually become immune. Neliffs don’t effect me personally but that is a long painful story and I can’t do much for others. There are also some artifacts that can protect against mind control.
Recently in a ceremony, The Heroes of Mt Sandspire were given an honor and gift of the Crown of the High King’s Favor. I was in Jemison Post at the time. I dug into them a little and they protect against mind control. Even on Immutables. But since they were given as an honor, it might be hard to borrow that. Eli of McGraw Harbor, Spymaster Lurtor, Peacelord Grim, and Peacelord Nuria were all given one.
If I could get a stealth drop off or within site of the Orbital Platform, I can take out Neliffs. I don’t remember if they are a hive mind and will know once one dies? So even a stealth action may need some sort of distraction to support it.
The other option is that we take out the Orbital Platform from a distance before it could be used.
For the forces on the ground, Only thing I can think of is to do a damoclese strike on the support ships of the Attacking force far enough away you don’t wake what lies sleeping below. But a damoclese strike is a bad bad plan I’m sure. bad."
Lurry didn’t know how to get them the information they needed any other way, and he did not want to report to the new McMurrphy as a VLAD agent yet. So this was the best option.
