We must finish the Thale.
We made the mistake of thinking them beaten and again they’ve struck and bled our people. Even beyond this though, we need the materials their lands provide. Every day I’m more and more convinced that we will have no choice but to go to war with them. We will need some way to assault the highlands they currently hold.
I have not seen any particularly fiendish weapons, nor have I seen the brutal beasts that the Thale have trained to serve their campaigns, but we would be naive to think they did not possess something just as dangerous. I am tired of being at the disadvantage, we must develop better methods of war, better weapons. Felina has a number of ideas, but has had neither the time or materials to pursue her ideas, perhaps it is time to divert like minds to her cause.
We have fire, rock, wood, and the strengthl of our people, together, these tools must be enough to push through these mountains into a new land. We must simply find a way to put them all together.
