Alphinaud: There is something to be said for a home-cooked meal, is there not?
Alphinaud: We must cherish these moments, fleeting as they are. The fight will always be there, waiting for us to return...
Alphinaud: I trust you are well rested and refreshed, yes? Then let us return to the front.
Alphinaud: The greater part of the Alliance forces should have advanced into the Peaks by now, but I expect we will pass many of our comrades on the road east.
Alphinaud: There is a checkpoint along the way, as I recall, but we will need only to identify ourselves to the soldiers in order to pass.
Alliance Recruit: Scions! A pleasure to have you with us again.
Alliance Recruit: You'll be happy to hear we've taken Ala Ghiri, and have already begun fortifying it as our new base of operations in the Peaks. Give a shout to the lads as you pass, eh?
M'naago: As you can see, this part of the Peaks is much higher than the northern reaches, hence why the imperials built Specula Imperatoris where they did.
M'naago: See those three towers to the east? That's her. Sits right on the edge of a cliff, so attacking from the north is a fool's errand. From the south, on the other hand, she's no different from any other imperial installation.
M'naago: You see now why Velodyna was so important, eh? Right, then. Come along─they're waiting for us in Ala Ghiri.
M'naago: Here we are. The new base of operations for the Alliance and the Resistance!
Raubahn: Ah, there you are!
Alphinaud: Greetings, General. I see you have been quite busy in our absence.
Raubahn: Less than you may imagine. The imperials fled at our coming, and we took the village without a fight.
Raubahn: Your timing is impeccable. We were about to discuss our strategy to seize Specula Imperatoris.
Alphinaud: Though we are fresh from the road, we should be glad to attend.
Raubahn: Good. Take a moment to gather yourselves, and join us when you are ready.
