    Still waddling through the sea of individuals, attempting to find his wayward granddaughter, Zasz listened to the remarks and observed the plans. Interesting -- they weren't even trying to hide their disdain any longer. He put it to the back of his mind and continued to move through crowd. Surely little Katria would be somewhere!

    Setesh hadn't heard anything unexpected during the briefing. That the biggest warbands took a flank each wasn't strange. That the Word Bearers used the "independants" as a shield was sound strategy, something Setesh would considering himself if he had to develop a "full assault" plan - as was the case here. Of course, he would not. And especially not when he was himself part of that particular group.

    Instead he'd probably divert the attention of the defenders in some way. Maybe use infiltration tactics, or some other means of weakening the forces. Turn them against each other. Create confusion, chaos or disarray. But that would take time. Word Bearers were not patient.

    He was not very keen on spearheading some assault for the Word Bearers, but he could sense Vra'tzaen would not mind in the least. As expected of the daemon within his force sword, who had probably heard the briefing. But maybe there was something in the city for him too. And he was still a little curious about the whole reason for this ordeal and the Word Bearers' seemingly hurry to deal with it, and the need for so much help. There couldn't possible have splintered off so many Word Bearers without any interesting reason.

    Zasz smiled at the little human and nodded as best he could. "I have many new tricks, thanks to the Word Bearers! They went to great efforts to make sure your grandfather was safe -- there were many sacrifices! And their care was not simply for me, either -- it was an impressive display across the medicae bay! Their dedication to the survival of their brothers fills me with joy!"

    A Brass Scorpion! Zasz was legitimately impressed. There was a beautiful craftsmanship involved in the Brass Scorpions, and once upon a time it had been his job to oversee the repair and maintenance of machines of war. His skill had disappeared in the millennia since, but there was still an appreciation for it.

    Setesh activated the vox caster in his helmet and spoke up. "What intelligence are there of what kind of tanks they are employing?" Setesh was more curious about what kind of defensive positions and tanks the defensive forces had than some khornate daemon engine. At least when, not if, it blows up it will take a fair chunk of combatants out with it. And until then, it would count as a distraction from himself.

    How reliable their intelligence was, is of course another matter. Atleast only one side had a daemon engine, assumably. Of course, tank-busting was not any of Setesh's particular talents, as he had not yet learnt or manifested any offensive damage dealing spells or powers of that magnitude, so those were for someone else to handle.

    Hmm. Zasz had thought they would be split into smaller groups, but it seemed 'smaller' here meant something on the scale of 'from thousands to thousands, but slightly less.' Oh well! He would still be with Katria. And perhaps...

    Curious, Zasz searched for his old compatriot Setesh. He had heard Setesh's voice asking a question, so Zasz knew the old sorcerer was around. Perhaps it would be best to go into this with someone he already knew. The Word Bearers had no intention of acting cautiously, and in face of death Papa Nurgle beamed widest, but it would be foolish to throw away his life for Chaos Undivided. No, working with someone he already knew would increase the recipients of Papa Nurgle's diseases -- after all, someone had to deliver them all, and that someone might as well be the Unremarkable Zasz the Ancient!

    Ushering Katria with him, Zasz began to make his way over to Setesh, keeping his eye out for that great warband devoted to the Changer of Ways.

    EDIT:

    Seeing one of the Astartes, he diverted from his path, moving to the Astartes he had spotted.

    Huh. It was always interesting to see whether someone would know who he was and who he worshiped or not. "I seek a champion of the Changer of Ways, brother. Your warband is magnificent, and surely stocked with such champions! Surely you or one of your brothers would engage me in combat, to determine tomorrow's battle!"

    "It would be an admission of weakness. And besides, wouldn't the blood of a champion of Nurgle be worth the effort? Your Lord prefers compacts sealed in the blood of Papa Nurgle's followers, does he not?" Zasz let out a boom laugh and cracked his neck, audible through the vox. "Either a champion will answer my call, or this assembly will know the way of things -- and the weakness of you, my brother."

    Zasz's tone remained as jolly as it always was. "No, dear brother, I have as little knowledge about that cowled sorcerer as I can possibly. But I know of the hosts aboard this vessel. I know they will fall upon murderers with the tenacity and joy of a plaguehound. I know they will be on the watch now, as we approach the peak of our bloodlust and pre-battle frenzies, watching to make sure their chattel and chafe doesn't fall to the floor before they might have their machinations completed. Now come, you will not suffer an insolent follower of Nurgle challenging you and your God, will you? Are you so weak that you fear the exertion it would take to reduce me to a corpse?"
