ROXY: so..... ROXY: wheres the condesce right now? VRISKA: She's on Derse, preparing for the same critical convergence herself. VRISKA: After our little prison raid caught her completely off guard, costing her some hostages and key points of leverage, we've essentially reached a temporary ceasefire 8y default while 8oth sides regroup. VRISKA: This is not how she expected things would go. VRISKA: We had the advantage of surprise that time, 8ut we won't 8e so lucky next time. VRISKA: She's w8ting for the Jacks to get here just like we are. VRISKA: Once they do, she'll instantly have the upper hand, and she knows this. VRISKA: Her particular com8ination of a8ilities along with her supervillain-like cunning make her an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS part of this equation! VRISKA: That's why we need a good strategy in place 8efore the shit hits the 8reeze 8lender. DAVE: so in addition for waiting for way too many jacks to get here DAVE: were also waiting for my bro too right DAVE: who... gets here at the same time or... VRISKA: Yes, the other Strider was 8anished to the periphery as well, and is in transit. VRISKA: He'll arrive at the same time, give or take, and should 8e a gr8 tactical asset. VRISKA: Sources tell me the dude is pretty good with a sword. ARQUIUSPRITE: That's me ARQUIUSPRITE: I'm the source ARQUIUSPRITE: I told her that, and it's true VRISKA: Yes, thank you Arquius. KANAYA: This Is Starting To Sound A Bit Complicated KANAYA: How Are We Supposed To Keep Track Of All These Villains And Heroes Coming And Going When And Where VRISKA: You're right, Kanaya. VRISKA: At this point in the meeting, I think we could use some diagrams to help with the 8attleplans. VRISKA: Karkat? VRISKA: If you wouldn't mind.
