Okay, first things. I'm not delaying this fight, I promise. It doesn't feel right, it just isn't the right time yet for the fight. I know it sounds stupid, but I can't explain it any differently. Richie, Eddie or me, we'll know when the right day is.
I have been putting this time to good use, though, and I've got a plan. I'm going to need help from magic users that can set traps. Cage-like traps. I can do some magic, but I'm not that good. And I'm going to need to ask groups of people to act like bait for those traps. Basically, the clown can appear in different places at the same time, so what I want to do is force it to do this, and then trap each version or aspect of it in that place. It'll show up in each place, wanting to attack the people who aren't affected by it, and it's an arrogant son of a bitch who'll just assume it's going to be able to do this without any problems. But then the traps will activate, it can't regroup with the rest of itself, and we're going to end up kicking the shit out of it.
In the meantime, there's going to be another group of people going down into the sewers to get at its lair. I'll need for more traps to be set down in the sewers as we go (it's too dangerous to go down and set them up before-hand), and then the group that gets to the lair has to deal with what's left of the Clown after it's split itself up so much. Richie and Eddie, we have to be in that group.
The groups are important, though. The Clown feeds on fear but it can't cope with love. Families, friends, lovers, whatever. If you're in a group made up of people that you love, then the Clown struggles. If you don't fear it, even better. We need every advantage we can get against this bastard.
Everyone who volunteered, does this plan work for you? I have a list of locations worked out, if you need to see them, in case that makes a difference. I know Zu works best near power lines, for example.
