“But just as important, I think it’s time we gave these sick sons-of-bitches a little of Dialydd Mab’s medicine closer to home!” Nimue snarled. “Let Clyntahn and Rayno try to explain why their precious Inquisition’s just been hit by what has to be one of Langhorne’s own Rakurai right in the middle of Zion!”

Can't tell you how long I've waited to see something like this. I just hope it comes to fruition.

And thanks, RFC for another taste of things to come.

So they drop a hypersonic air lorrie filled with rocks on the Temple? :)

C'mon guys, they'll talk her out of it. The question is just which one of Nimue's friends the Inquisition has taken or killed.

Perchance Sandaria?

Thanks, RFC! Sounds like fun in retribution.

Thank you, RFC! I'm not quite certain what the particulars here are, but I so want Nimue to convince the others to go with it. Fun times ahead.

The mention of Mab suggests to me that it wouldn't be something as flashy as Rakurai impersonation. A seijin murder spree at an Inquisition meeting?

One or two 2000 Pound LGBs (we know Merlin has them from the rescue in HFQ) lofted from several miles away into one of the neighborhoods where the Church's senior bishops and archbishops maintain residences (we learned about one of them about midway through HFQ when RFC was describing the results of the bombing of the Second Church of the Holy Pasquale of the Faithful of Zion). Or into a Temple Guard Barracks. Or wherever there's a convenient concentration of Inquisitors... Having seen my share of MK 84's go off in my time, I can tell you from personal experience that for anyone on the ground in close proximity, it would most definitely be the "return of the Rakurai"...

Do you think she's upset about something?

Of course, Langhorne's faith is somewhat patriarchal, so perhaps the Father of All Bombs would be more appropriate.

Interesting that it is Nimue advocating a an OBS style attack on a target in Zion.

You would think something like that would trigger some sort of alarms, not to mention the religious implications and what happens when they need to reveal the Truth.
