"Don't worry about blowing the tower. It's basically impossible for us. We could, but it would take research and resources we don't have yet, and no way a mummy lets himself get crushed while we do days of labor setting it up. And maybe they moved on, but it didn't sound like Beau gave them anything ta worry about, so maybe not. We should roll up in there before nightfall today, and bust up tha joint."
"Why the sense of urgency, of it's been weeks since it was seen there?"
"Mm. Backing up a moment, Patti, you weren't on the council before and I don't remember the extent to which we've addressed this in meetings before, but the attack on us was almost certainly not influenced by Beau's actions. The undead laying siege were coordinating their activities, but only going from one enclave to another in some genocidal effort. Becky recognized one of our foes as a possessed corpse that had besieged her own enclave before Beau even left.
Nonetheless, the idea that Beau was allowed to escape as live bait doesn't seem impossible. What we really don't know yet is just how much control these mummies have over the chaos they've unleashed. They can no longer coordinate with each other using telephones or the internet, and many roads are shut down, making even foot messengers problematic.
The roving genocidal group that attacked us was definitely organized, possibly by a mummy, but I suspect they had no ongoing communication with them... That, to me, makes it seem more likely that Beau was released as live bait. Not to summon our enclave specifically, because they would have no way of knowing he came from us. But rather, just to lure out brave humans to destroy - because he'd have a limited ability to come to us individually."
"Ben, Stevie, you talked about sending large amounts of people, and with this risk of a trap, I don't think we should do it. If we send people--"
"We're sending people."
"--It should be a small group of people, and shouldn't include any of our most important members. I think for morale reasons, Seth should definitely not be risked. In fact, I don't think we should send more than three well-armed people. I see the potential benefit of killing the mummies is great, but the risks are terrible."
"I HAVE to go! This is totally my dream. Maybe you can just make a Seth replacement out of straw if you need to.
I think it's not as dangerous as all that, Beau got out of there armed with a cute dog and a can of beans or something. See, we go there in the day, the demons can just be outrun, they got no powers. I don't think the mummies will be expecting us after all these weeks, if they are still there. We're not that important. Plus, there's no proof mummies can even do anything cool on the spot. They weren't expecting someone to just roll up on 'em like that, he didn't cast any fireballs or anything. I think we can do this! We can be cautious and check the building out before we tear up in there. I at LEAST have to be in the vicinity!"
