As Oz's men follow their orders, he and Prrcyvel sit down and finish
their tea. Every once in a while a message comes through reporting
some group of bandits or another has been captured. Prrcyvel seems
quite happy to see a band of robbers that have troubled the city
finally being brought in.

As Oz's unit gathers below the tower, a message comes in from the
Palace demanding Sir Prrcyvel's attention. He goes to the radio and
largely listens, without saying much.

[Sir Prrcyvel]
Prrcyvel returns to the table, looks out the window and sighs. "It is
war in the north, too. The Splugorth have us between a southern army
and a northern army. I'm afraid you've been drafted at rather a tough
moment, old chap. We have orders to clear this lot of hooligans out by
morning, or to find this wall of mist, and blast everything around it.
Mrrylin apparently has something that will keep whoever is inside that
wall in there and out of our way."
[/Sir Prrcyvel]
