In his story-line, he's going to become a commander of a small force of troops. As his story progresses, he is going to continue to gain fame among the queen and eventually receive huge promotions.
By the time the convention rolls around, he is going to be a huge leader in the Queen's army. I am thinking that Silas (my LCC character), could be stationed to Maldrake's fortress after news of this major assault catches wind. My character can take his sizable army to the fortress and defend it. Or, if that is too much, then he could be arriving with a huge host of reinforcements sent from the Queen herself? Any thoughts?
Ultimately, as Lord Mercat has stated, I think we need to have a story with this, and plan out just how each one of our in-game characters got involved.
I think we need a firm idea on how the battle will take place by the end of this month, that way we can plan accordingly.
Would there be any combat, if a fortress is sieged?
Or, would a battle be taking place outside the fortress with both forces? If the battle is outside the fortress, then there would be a need for heavily armored trolls and warbeasts for the Outlaws.
Well I don't really have a story tacked down well in advance for my character, it's more or less a general idea as to where things should go. In this case I don't know by what means my character will get there, or why he will be there, but I mostly likely will be there. Maybe Silas and Boethius can "bump" into each other during our adventures sometime.
As for the battle plan, if we intend to use all of our Outlaw forces maybe we should have the main group of Outlaws, the Queen's troops and Maldrake's henchmen in the tower/keep area, but have the "dirty, hairy, mindless" outlaws, Orcs, Goblins, and Trolls camped outside of the tower. Maybe Maldrake has convinced them to fight for him; either through coin or magic.
Or as I suggested earlier, the other outlaws, orcs, etc. are the reserves for battle, and can be running into the battle to encircle the other three factions.

How many collaborators plan to go?
I was going to make up some custom cape (and banner) "treat bags" for collab participants.
Can one of you PM me an estimate?
I'd try and PM Sir Haymar as he is the head of the display and probably has a better head count.
