Viable options,  though I should mention that the astroid is rather small,
perhaps 200 yards wide by 150 yards long,  and relatively disc shaped (only
one side is a viable landing zone, the opposite side is is strewn with
debris and craters from meteor strikes.).  The elven Siege weapons are
built to cover the landing zones with fire.  I don't think a few small
landing craft would make much of a difference here,  given the relative
forces.  Doesn't anyone think the elves have a chance (besides me)?

"We look on the same stars,  the sky is common,  the same world surrounds
us.  What difference does it make by what pains each seeks the truth?  We
can not attain to so great a secret by one road..."

Victory from the Senate House" (392 AD)
