The more wargame-savvy of you can probably realise what’s going on, but just in case here’s a bit of a clearer illustration.
The palace dragons are pretty much exactly what their name implies, they are dragons that usually hang around the Dragon Palace in Stradville, where Sildyu and the royal guard usually are as well. They are the most highly-trained and battle-capable dragons Sildyu controls, and most of them also have the added bonus of being willingly under her command rather than controlled at all times by the Dragon Talisman. Palace dragons first showed up early in Book 5 when they roasted Spire and co from above.

So, they are the best weapons at Sildyu’s disposal for taking down both the Guarding Soldier and Dalmosh, 2 days flight away from Stradville. The one problem with this otherwise flawless tactical maneuver? This leaves the Dragon Palace without its strongest defensive aspect, one that the Japanese battleship Yamato was very familiar with: Air support

  1. And of course, there just happens to be a certain group of less than friendly characters on their way towards the palace while all of this is going on, right?

  2. I notice that Pericle Island is right there looking on. Maybe that won’t make any difference, but I thought it was of note.

  3. Classic diversionary tactics.
    Also that’s going to be a lot of very VERY flat and eaten dragons!

  5. That is, assuming there are epic-level casters and/or the dragons are able to cast teleport themselves. And ignoring greater teleport.
