That was going to be a hell of a project. It took several hours to build something as complex as an armored skimmer by hand, and we needed at least twenty of them.
Better senses, basic magical defenses, perhaps something to make them more durable or harder to target for a quiet takedown.
Something about the size of these walls. But Gronir keeps asking among the refugees, and I know his list has at least thirty names on it.
First we set up a special housing area for the families of each unit, so their wives are all neighbors and gossip with each other. Then we make being absent without leave a fairly serious offense, but arrange our schedules so that each man gets to spend a day or two with his family every week.
Make the standard training schedule five days of work followed by two days of leave, or something like that. Maybe we should let them have more than one bride?
Not unless you want them murdering each other, Daniel. Let the sergeants take concubines if they want, but the enlisted men are way too young and stupid to handle that kind of thing.
I think Black Island has a good chance of surviving this trial, but the rest of the city is another matter. The question is, what do we do about it?
Some measures to limit the number of outsiders visiting the island would also be wise. Perhaps we could set up a market at the other end of the causeway?
What about recruiting opportunities? But the nobles will all be thinking the same thing, and most men feel a bit nervous about working for a wizard.
It could be expensive. The meeting dragged on for longer than I would have liked. There were endless details to arrange, and a lot of decisions the men wanted my approval on.
Demetrios was a bit surprised at my plan to take over the Harbor District, although he seemed to understand my reasoning.
But it takes time for people to make up their minds about things like that, and more time for us to recruit them. They can move the local businesses that are still running inside them, and organize militias to defend them the next time the city is attacked.
It will help control movement in and out of the district, and limit the number of monsters that can sneak in.
But if I did that the nobles would think I was staking claim to the entire city, and that would only cause more trouble.
I had too many other urgent projects on my plate. I feed magic from my amulet into their land, and it makes them stronger. Then they do their thing, and it makes me stronger too.
She grinned at me. Pelagia is going to hold a revel for you, to get things going with her grove. Do you have any idea what could have caused that?
Well, it turns out that Gaea grows magic bananas that work a lot like the golden apples in Asgard. If she ever has a breakdown, or just has a bad day and lashes out, people could die.
But can we really turn her away, if she comes to us for help? How about we take this discussion to the ritual chamber? If there was anywhere we could make plans without being spied on, it was there.
There were a couple of complications, though. Elin still seemed a little miffed about that, but Cerise and Tina were all smiles. That required more explanation, of course.
What we need to do is watch, make preparations, and be ready to strike when the opportunity presents itself. Cerise, Elin, who worships Gaea these days?
She has rejected all but the most primitive worshippers for ages now. The delicate faerie settled herself on a pile of pillows beside me, and frowned in thought.
Hags live in the wilder swamps and woods of Europe, while goblins and trolls inhabit the mountains. Goblin tribes are also found in the mountains of Jotunheim, and possibly the jungles of Skogheim.
Here, let me take this down for you while you smart people talk. Daniel, are you relying on the Julian hypothesis of divine power here?
He had some kind of magic device implanted under his skin, and the more I think about it the more convinced I am that he let himself get captured.
It would be quite in character for him to rely on some form of subterfuge to eliminate the threat of the andregi, or to somehow neutralize Gaea.
Daniel, Prince Caspar seems to be dead. There are four dukes in town, all of about the same standing, and they spent most of the afternoon arguing with each other about what to do next.
The nobles will not follow a wizard, the wizards will not follow a noble, the commoners are restive and the church serves only the gods.
Especially since Cerise was nodding along. I knew she was powerful, but this is pretty damned subtle. When did she get so sneaky?
She may pretend to be a blunt instrument, but she is far more devious than she seems. The remainder of the bond is perfectly intact and unaltered, so far as I can determine.
Mara was a beautiful woman, not to mention demanding and completely uninhibited. Next time I want to be the one who gets the hot demigoddess so worked up she works a miracle just so she can bang me.
Elin pushed a lock of dark green hair out of her face, and frowned. If she could do that, what else might she have done? But I think I get it now.
Gods are more like living ideas than creatures of flesh and blood, and they can work a special kind of magic with the principles they embody.
She just invoked her power to remove any obstacles in her path? I doubt she knows all that much about wizardry, either. Her mother hates that shit.
Elin gave the coven magic one last, long look, and sighed. Sharing you with outsiders was not part of the deal.
I still wish she could have joined us when we first formed the coven. The circumstances that had brought my coven together may have been less than ideal, but we were happy together.
Tina greeted us all with hugs and kisses when we entered the dining room. The phenomenally buxom redhead was as cheerful as ever.
Being pregnant seemed to agree with her, and she loved being a catgirl. Dinner is almost ready. That was probably good advice.
A mission that was going to lead to the deaths of several million ape men. Granted, they were trying to exterminate humanity, and my own stronghold seemed to be right up at the top of their target list.
It would be nice to just spend some time with my girls, and remind myself what I was protecting. For the better, I think, but everything had moved so fast it was hard to keep track sometimes.
Elin was far more relaxed now. The frightened girl who thought no one could ever want her was gone, replaced by a confident young lady who chatted amiably with Cerise about everything from magical theory to philosophy.
The gown she wore looked like something a noble lady would choose for an evening of lounging about at home, and her waist-length hair had been woven into a complicated arrangement decorated with little gold bangles.
With the enhanced strength of her catgirl form she still carried herself as lightly as ever, and her smile was radiant.
The dress she wore to dinner was only knee length, with a scooped neckline that bared the upper slopes of her breasts and the gold power tap amulet nestled between them.
Cerise was wearing new clothes too, although in her case it was a suit of armor that showed a distinct elvish influence.
It fitted her lithe curves like a second skin, and while the boots and vest were leather the rest seemed to be woven from living shadows.
Her magic seemed noticeably better balanced than it had just a week ago, with the demonic influence much less obvious.
Her horns had shrunk a bit, and was it just me or had she gotten taller somehow? She was just a little taller than Elin now, and her hair had grown into a cascade of silky black waves that almost reached her waist.
An incidental effect of tinkering with her magic, or was she being competitive? I was distracted from wondering about it when Avilla came in with a serving platter in her hands, and a string of maids behind her.
Her maids laid out the rest of the meal with practiced precision, and then poured the wine and withdrew to the kitchen. As they made their retreat I noted that they had new uniforms too.
Their sleeves came all the way to the wrist, their shoes were more like low-cut boots, and each of them had a red lightning bolt embroidered at the shoulder.
Sefwin is helping me come up with a design that will work for her people too. Julia, show Daniel your hidden tricks. She flicked her wrist, and a pretty little knife appeared in her hand.
There was just a whisper of magic involved, of the subtle sort that the elves seemed to prefer. A hidden wrist sheath, then?
She put it away just as easily, and then made three shuriken appear in her other hand. She put them away, and reached both hands into the bow at the small of her back.
They came out holding a pair of ten-inch combat knives. She made the daggers vanish just as easily as she had the smaller blades. Then she took my hand, and put it on the front of her dress.
The elves can weave cloth out of mithril somehow. The whole dress is like mail, even the skirts. Lacy underthings, or does Avilla have you girls going around with no panties?
Most of them were so stacked I would have assumed they had implants back home, and their ears were too long and mobile to hide easily.
Not to mention that their skin tones were a lot darker than any of the humans who lived in Northern Europe. Avilla turned to the breakfast bar, where half a dozen maids were lined up waiting in case we needed anything.
Five hands went up. A couple of the girls raised both hands, and hopped up and down waving them around.
Elin snorted at that. You can make a man forget what he was saying just by taking a deep breath. But I call dibs on having the biggest pair in the palace.
She finally seemed content with her assets after the last session, which was a good thing because if she were any bigger it would definitely be too much.
Avila smiled tolerantly at her. October Nominations 31 Sep 30, Sci-Fi Girl with enhancements escapes the orphanage and travels off-planet.

I generally like Teasdale's books, despite the fact that they aren't especially realistic. Unfortunately, in this particular volume the problems become too large to ignore.
First, there is a major political subplot that's completely nonsensical if you I generally like Teasdale's books, despite the fact that they aren't especially realistic.
First, there is a major political subplot that's completely nonsensical if you actually know anything about America. We're supposed to believe that a move to allow localities to operate their own police forces is some kind of radical new initiative worthy of intense suspicion, when in fact that's exactly how policing has worked in the US since before the Revolution.
Sorry, Teasdale, but you've got everything exactly backwards here. Then we have Fox's parents. I still can't figure out if they're supposed to be classic liberal anarchists, or conservative small-government types, or libertarian anarcho-capitalists - because as far as I can tell Teasdale thinks these radically different movements are all the same group.
A word of advice, Mr. But it isn't just the politics. We also have Fox's visit to a small rural community, in which she inevitably discovers that everyone she disapproves of is a criminal.
We have the typical bible-thumping farmer who beats his wife and rapes his daughter, because why not use a lazy and inaccurate stereotype as a subplot?
Of course the local watch group turns out to be a bunch of thugs and criminals, and the fact that their leader has a trophy wife tells us in advance that he's secretly a pedophile.
It's all incredibly lazy. Anyone who disagrees with the protagonist's politics must be a criminal or a dupe, and the author can't even be bothered to come up with interesting crimes for them to be guilty of.
I'm going to pass over the laughable bit about global warming magically turning the Midwest into a superdesert where unmodified humans can't survive and all permanent construction gets torn apart by tornadoes.
That level of silliness is par for the course with Teasdale, and I've learned to ignore it the same way you don't question an action movie's plot too closely.
Then we finally get to the main plot, a murder 'mystery' where the key clue is given away on the dust jacket and the identity of the murderer is obvious from the moment he's first mentioned.
But Fox manages to spend half her scenes during the final manhunt sexing up her new beau while her AIs do all the detective work, so we're left wondering if she even cares about the result.
Ho hum, another serial killer brought to justice. Why exactly do you think it's ok for you to keep a bunch of obviously sentient AIs as your personal slaves, anyway?
