3d6 <= 12
4 + 6 + 3 = 13 ... failure

Guess I need to use a destiny point to fix that.

I need to do the math on these things... far less effective than I had hoped.

The two start moving stones swiftly according to the pattern, large rocks and small rocks moving cleanly out and laid down carefully.


V accidentally fumbles one of the smooth stones, but a lucky ledge catches it and prevents injury.



nine minutes into the process (one minute left until its time to take the emperor off line), The two of you hear a thump against one of the walls.

Until they start to breach, all we can do is work as fast as we can...

They're definitely going to go report this. Maybe I can get them distracted and talking so I can buy time.

"Sorry, you can't come in yet. I need to finish cleaning the floors."

Hopefully I can draw whoever this is into a longer conversation.

Nice! You can say you're under orders from a conspirator who is not here from your research...

If it looks like they are going to penetrate before 6 minutes, do you think I should
  • Just fight,
  • Shapeshift into a wall/bubble to try and buy you a few more minutes
or
  • Attempt the Maximus form to try and confuse or turn some of his followers?

Option 2 if you think that would last 12 minutes. Option 3 if you think you can confuse them while I continue working.

"The floors? What about the wall?"

I pause briefly to work on the phrasing. I want to slip it into the conversation kind of naturally, so that a loyal priest would take it as a non-sequitur while a disloyal priest might be clued in that I'm involved with this conspiracy.

"Cleaning the wall... not that wall! You care about the minutia of cleaning arrangements but not that there is a giant foam wall between me and you!"

He doesn't seem to get the significance of this at all.


The two of you continue to move blocks as Halcyone stalls for time.

"So you're not here to take the wall down?"

I assume his response will be an exasperated "no" or something.

"Well now I am confused. I came over here, to mop up this area, and on the side I was coming to enter on, there was this big foam wall. I come over to enter on the other side and there was this guy with a big can of construction foam. He's all like, 'yeah, I got orders from Cyraelian to put up foam walls', and I'm all like, 'well I gotta mop up this area'. But he's cool with just sealing me up behind the wall. But if you don't know anything about it, I'm kinda getting concerned. I got other places to clean on my list, and I'm up for review next week. I don't need some chuckle****'s practical joke ruining my chances at promotion for the next three years."
