Yes I'm on it too.
If we're talking Classes, I have a few Riders in mind.
I don't think this is a fight worth haggling over, it should be fine. The zombie rat is a good point, though. I believe Caster was sending it in headlong to see when and how it would die, so if it didn't find anything it would have come out the other side of the forest or made it to the enemy base somehow.
Well, fair enough. The telescope can't see through things ranked B or higher on the Servant scale, so if a Caster was involved it probably won't work. I can't speak to Rider's ability since that's @King Cosmos's business.

Anyway there have been a few posts with things like "I'm scouting the area" and I haven't seen many results from that unless it was in PMs, so I want to make sure our good surveillance utility doesn't go to waste.
Worth noting that Rider probably would have seen these attackers coming and Lancer would've had a good chance to depending on how they were made invisible. This doesn't seem like a fight that should be too dangerous even as an ambush, since if Masters can fight these chimeras Servants ought to cut through them like butter, but it's good to remember that 2 party members are more or less running see invis/truesight and there are likely things you'll want to let us know we can see, especially in the forest.


After hours of labour in the cramped room, Decival enjoyed the change of scenery to the open plains. He had donned his coat, and various lumps on it seemed to indicate he was equipped with a multitude of things. Beside him was his Servant, Lancer, a pale man with an etherial intensity who lacked any impression of being a "warrior". He had only joined the group as they were leaving, seemingly having been on watch for sneak attacks to the church, and investigating the features of a modern town.

At Aksha's suggestion, Lancer spoke up, "While that is my class, you should not consider me a knight. My resistance to magecraft is negligible until I have had time to observe its workings. I would say that Saber or Rider would make a fine point man, while I could follow shortly behind. Berserker will be a superb fighter once we have cleared out the worst of the spells."

Decival reached into one pocket and produced a metal canister, then passed it to his Servant. "The forces at work in that forest- I'd like you to take a sample of them. Oh, come to think of it..." He plunged both hands into his coat pockets, pulling out the same collection of stone, eyeless, joyful faces on his left, and on his right, a lattice cage of metal strips, forming vaguely into the shape and of a slightly miniature head, seemingly hollow inside. "This may be of no consequence, but I can slowly flood an area with an ever-expanding "curse" that will eat away at flesh. Nothing but a nuisance to all but the most modern of Servants, but it would gradually take more and more territory from the Greys unless they destroyed it at the source. Naturally, I can render us immune. This may aid in a counterattack once we resolve whatever so much energy was gathered for."

While his Master spoke, Lancer produced his telescope. He had not revealed to the faction that this was his weapon of choice, much less that it was a Noble Phantasm. Scanning the forest this way might have seemed like a basic and casual searching method before battle, but Antico Cannocchiale could transport Lancer's vision perhaps even further than Archer's. This tool, which had laid bare the secrets of the heavens, would root out hidden traps, magecraft, and possibly even a lacklustre Assassin.
Fair enough. I'll send out both my characters for this one.
It does feel weird sending out the entire faction at once to investigate one thing, though it makes sense so that all players get a chance to act. I think I'll have Decival stay back and watch via familiar since he's support and isn't ready to deploy any creations yet, but he'll send Lancer out with a containment canister.
I'm up for it.
