"Lore was at war with us when we the capital fell; the majority of their armies were sieging Busybody and Copout. As such, most of their forces are gone, but if the armies supporting their capital was any indication, their cities will contain full compliments. Our army took Lore, but that was led by several high level warlords and casters. Their cities will not be as heavily defended as Lore was, but then, we have only my bonus to rely on. If so much of our treasury had not been emptied, I would suggest mass production of Boogie Woogie Men to meet you at Plot. As is, perhaps a shuffle. We move soldiers from Busybody, now our most secure border, to Knowitall, soldiers from Knowitall to Copout and the garrison in Copout to Plot, where they will meet with you and construct siege. Keeping a stack of Boogie Woogie Men in Busybody and Knowitall, the rest march up to Plot, and help form the meat of the attack."

In fact, I volunteer to take a stack of Peekers and Archers and flying to just outside of Plot, then almost back, and walking back to find the most expedient route for our slow infantry."
"There's no need for you personally to go along; the Archons are more than capable to act as advanced recon. But, I suppose you may want to visit the field for the first time, stretch your legs, as it were. Cravens are already in the field around Knowitall, they can be ordered to Plot so we can learn the terrain."
