@Violon 'Cello' "Damn it!" exclaimed the Light Queen as she once again received word that another battalion has fallen to the Dark King's army. Caelestis's fist collided with the Ash wood desk. The harsh collision forced a splintering crater to form a few inches around her fist. Quite a few documents were sent flying into the air while others had the fate of crumpling along with the table. Her war adviser Aden, a man well in his mid-50's, watched as the queen had her momentary outbreak. He bore a passive look as the Queen had the fit, waiting patiently for her to pay attention to him once more. He stood erect in a chrome jet black suit that covered a white dress shirt, making him stand out from the rest of the male servants with their much more dull ones. A lightly tan callused finger pushed his wire rimmed glasses back onto the bridge of his nose. His grey eyes looked over to her then to the next report that the messenger had delivered to him. He brought his hand over to it in a calm manner but then paused as the digits made contact with the sheet of paper. They fidgeted with it a bit, hesitation striking him, but pulled it out and placed it on the Queen's nearly broken desk none the less. It was the list of casualties, and it would soon be updated with a much higher number of the men and women who were giving their lives for their home. "My Queen, our war tactics are not executing properly as we thought it would. They appear to possess training just as elite as our military personnel." He told the young woman. "Then what can we do? Can we not use a different tactic of some sort? Could we not take to the trees and ambush them from above?" She asked him with a worried look in her icy blue eyes. "That would be suicide my Queen. The opposing forces would immediately eliminate the threat the moment it occurred. Yes it would take out a couple of the Dark King's men, possibly a battalion, but it would result in losing the people you sent out to kill them. It would be a take and receive." He advised her as she ran her hands through her long hair out of frustration. "Killing a portion of his army would result in losing equivalent the amount to mine. Do you think we need a larger force than them Aden?" She asked him with a hint of doubt in her voice. "I do advise against it, however we are left with no other choice as our military is vanishing as quickly as we are enlisting. We will have to release more support posters to encourage more citizens to join the military my Queen.." The snow white haired woman sighed in defeat as she nodded her head solemnly, "I hate having to send my citizens out there to face the opposing forces... Though...," with another sigh, she looked back up to the elder, "Release the support posters...Recruit as many as you can, be it peasants or upper class." "Yes, my Queen."
