"The problem is, Kalōkāt Lady Edaledalende, that our bridges cannot hold the weight of our soldiers and our pass is not large enough."
"And our engineers didn't think about this?"
The adjunct coughed. "We don't have any engineers in this unit, Kalōkāt Lady Edaledalende. There weren't any available."
"Well then." Edaledalende pursed her lips. "We should do something to fix that. But first, we have to win this battle."
