Lalder says "Torlok’ab, your concern is noted. I do not thing Zela spread in a mist will help. And again, we are not talking about attacking the ziggernaut right above drewsport. That is why its parked here I’m sure. Afterall, the UtR’s agreement to fight is partially to protect Drewsport not destroy it in battle.
Also as I’ve stated I don’t think any battle should be over a city. Whether its the Ziggernaut or the technomatic fleet.
The talk of Zela is for what do we do when the witch turns on us all. Why we keep talking of zela is to break the Annihilation Field around the Ziggernaut. As that is one of the only things that could be used. For example, If we have any Zela ammunition, that could be used to shoot those on the ziggernaut. The ability to threaten is different from the actual use of it. That is what the witch is doing to us.
Another things is that zela could be used defensively. Reducing the effect of the Annihilation beams. These are why we are asking about Zela. Not to spread a poison cloud of it.
But zela and weapons using it will have to come from someone else as I have none."
Lalder considers the question of zela and the crystal. He was not sure…
Lalder continues “I don’t know what would happen if zela dust was mixed with the crystal. Whether that would stop the technomatic fleet invasion or not. I am interested by that, but I don’t have any.”
