– Desert Ratroaches? :I
" Jake muttered to himself as he listened in between Lunar's transmissions of knowledge and Scael's discussion on their tactics. The idea of a poison cloud was an interesting one, and would certainly be of use against a large horde of those so called Hivelings. Unfortunately, there was a slight flaw in these plans. "Be right back, Kallis,
" he said as he raised himself off his seat. "I'm sure we'll have time for a nice talk after this, hmm?
" he smiled before taking his leave as he approached a seat closer to the front, nearer to the others. Making himself comfortable again after a few moments of stumbling his steps on the shaky Lander, he managed to get a better hear of the discussion and was able to make his own comment heard.
"I am unsure if my idea will be of any use, but...
" Jake paused for a moment, considering the absurdity of what he was about to say, "I could boil it if possible.
" Another pause. He looked around at the others, unsure if he should continue. Well, better for a soldier to be heard, then a king to called ignorant
, he exhaled softly to relax himself as he brought up a hand and ignited it with a minimal amount of Ember. "My flames could be of help here,
" he said as he twirled the flames around his fingers like something lifeless gone animate, "if we were to somehow gather or maybe dilute Isarabi's poison into a larger quantity, I could heat it up enough to turn it into a more vaporous form.
"The problem here however,
" the flames grew weaker and disappeared within a moment as he put his hand back on his lap, "is the Wild Lands itself. With so much heat and so little humidity already present in the environment, it'd be a miracle if the poison doesn't dry up the moment we deploy it.
" Jake turned himself to Adrian and continued to speak, "An alternative would be to call upon Mr. Myoto's control over weather to bring us to a more advantageous environment. That is, rain. But this would only serve to render the mist useless also.
"Another problem would be the Hivelings themselves. Dumb as they are, these creatures are still animals, and animals prefer to follow instincts when a threat is present.
" He paused for a moment of air, "Ignoring the fact their ability to metabolize most poisons, given time. Having spent most of their lives underground, I'm sure they will try to burrow into the earth the moment they spot a hindrance in their murderous stampede up above.
Jake exhaled from having spoken so much, gathering his thoughts together for what was left of his idea. "Which brings us to another alternative, to destroy their route and make it impossible for them to even reach their destination in the first place. Mr. Myoto's rain may make the idea of a poison cloud inapplicable, but it can still bring upon another advantage.
