I met with our allies and shared the information I received from Matt. The atmosphere in this meeting was calmer than the previous one. People are super anxious. We shared strategy ideas. How do we get rid of Xavier and his goons? What would be the most effective means of attack? How? When? If people wanted to walk away from Central instead of fighting do we let them leave?
Everyone agreed the Central Leader was not someone we wanted in our community. The longer he stayed in town the stronger he was going to get. He is almost too strong now.
We have all decided to band together in a show of force. A lot of violence is expected and people were given the opportunity to back out of the conflict if they found the risk to great. No one withdrew. I will send a runner to inform Matt on how we plan to proceed.
