Huh that sounds patronising. I didn't mean 'not bad' I meant very good!

Not much time to post, today: I'll write something this evening.
Well everyone, now that we've solved the mystery, I was hoping we could use the off-topic threads more often to make our planning for the assault easyer...
Anyway I read Tiramir's official post about strategy and I agree more or less.
In the meanwhile, assume I agree with you on major decisions.
See you this evening,

Shaken though he was by the discovery, Tiramir's spirits were renewed by Crimson's words, and the prospect of bringing vengeance to the Daedra scum. "Unlike you fighters perhaps, I am at the full extent of my power in open spaces, where I have no fears of striking friendly troops. As I am not the only spell caster, and it appears a few of us have some skill with a bow, I propose we "scale the walls". However, I believe we can take this to a greater level with the use of levitation - either through spells or potions. If we could make our way through the gate to the northern wall, I believe we could simply glide to the enemies. We sorcerers could provide shields as well as pin the Daedra with our spells. When the warriors finally make it across, we could do much the same as what one does when boarding a ship. We would spill into the Garth, and overrun their defenses. From here we could make our way to the stones. During the entire battle, my summoned creatures, and Marissa's healing spells will play across all aspects of the assault. Secondly, I agree with Crimson. Not only would fighting in the crypts put us in a bottle neck, but few of us are armed with silver weaponry, and a vampire bite can often prove much more devastating than any Dremora's axe." Turning to Abbot Diane he asks her, "Lui and I can bestow upon the group a number of potions - I have some skill in the art, and a monk is bound to have left his mortar somewhere in this place. Perhaps you too could provide us with more." Facing now all those present he adds, "We must also collect any silver weapons we can find, as, should the vampires come to reinforce the Daedra, the blades will be a great asset to our cause." On the verge of plunging into the battle already, Tiramir concluded he could be of best use in his alchemy, and as he leaves to find an apparatus, he motions Crimson and Frouth to begin the search of armaments.
This was my orginal plan, however, I just added a few changes. Please comment so we can improve it - this is quite a ruff (and brutish) form of strategy and it needs to be refined...
Though satisfied with what he perceived to be a solid battle plan, Tiramir was disturbed by the sudden thought of what would happen, should the Daedra forces prove to be too powerful. A massacre, that’s what... Fortunately, the thought occurred to him that by simply integrating a level of subterfuge into their assault, such a doom might be evaded. "After analyzing my initial ideas, I would like to make two major additions. Firstly, any form of chameleon or cloak will be invaluable as, during our crawl along the northern wall, we will be helpless before enemy fire. Secondly, and perhaps more difficult to execute of the two, is an undercover pair. Two persons who will approach the enemy’s defensive position with stealth, hoping to warn the direct attackers of hazards, as well as to perhaps cause a certain level of confusion just before the attack strikes." Hoping his insights had improved their chances of success, Tiramir awaited the thoughts and actions of his companions.
Here's the second part - an attempt at including some secrecy into our assault.
