It was Amber of the Clone Union who met with him. Since taking over the Tilde Clone citizens, she had gained quite a bit of support from the OtOs and the other Lurtors.
Spymaster Lurtor was ready for just about any answer except the one he got.
Amber said, "The Cloning Facility is up and running. In fact, I have made sure the Clone Union has the place well defended in case of attack.
Every week since Jemison Post was liberated from the EEF, we have been continuing to increase the numbers of Clone Union members.
The facility is still technically under a Banking Guild Deed and the Deed shows Captain Oliver of the Kolgul Militia as the current owner. Though I will admit since Jemison Post has become a Northern Kingdom, I have not seen Captain Oliver come around.
Back when we were an EEF outpost, he used to come and go regularly from the facility. Not so much now."
Amber showed Lurtor the deed, and Lurtor found it interesting that the dates corresponded with the date before the Glacial expedition originally left Dusk. In fact it looked like the Old VLAD used one of his many companies to officially transfer ownership of the Cloning Facility from his own company to Captain Oliver, the minute the EEF began organizing the Glacial Wastes expedition.
Checking the dates again, Lurtor was impressed to see a portion of the Old VLAD’s plans revealed. It seemed the Old VLAD timed the transfer of the deed, and his own pulling out of forces from the Glacial Research Facility with their own arrival and the orbital strike on the Sea Kings.
In one motion, he had secured an army for Oliver, and eliminated the greatest threat to that land.
Having seen the immense Sea Kings army that DID invade the Glacial Research Facility, Lurtor was terrified to think of how different the battle would have gone if two things were different. The first was the worry about what the battle would have looked like if all the Illuminated Pharoahs of the far continent had coordinated their invasion with the Warmonger Quall-Avatar. Lurtor feared they would not have stood a chance, and the EEF would have had to orbital strike the region just to prevent the Sea Kings from taking it all.
Thinking back to all the times cloned OtOs and cloned Lurtors showed up in battle to drive out the Sea kings and now provided security to Jemison Post, Spymaster Lurtor would have been deeply concerned if they did not have the Clone Union and its support.
