"Are they starving? Are they subjugated? have they started any wars? Do they remain loyal to their gods? That city has always had an over-inflated sense of its own importance."

Quote:
Peter will relay what information he has as well as any dangling questions the Thurmans had that he's been unable to ask until now.
The big one was "Where is Ink-Thur?" He wants you to tell them he is approaching the enemy, but the enemy is trying to hide. "Please do not give details of this world or my disguise".



They also want him to confirm the special privileges that Tuvo Kyridas has gained. "This appears quite complex. Tell them I make no judgement as of yet. But it seems to be connected to if I approve of you or not."

The people are not in good shape and they are not getting enough food... I'm working on setting up fair trade with the Americans to help with that. Thuroma is quite powerful right now, because they have me, and can trade the information I bring back for other gods for Thuroman gain. "

"Good. The measures are working then."

Quote:
"So, like really for real dragons? I can't wait to meet one!"
"Yes. I'd advise to stay away unless you're ready for a fight. Dragons are dangerous."

Ink Thur: "You're not carrying the message for me, you're carrying the message from me. Its convenient to me, yes, but you have already been paid."


"I have no desire to offend you, only to seek the respect which is due to me and my kind. Which you are not. You are something else."

Ink Thur: "That could possibly work. If they were working with a different group."

Ink Thur says he's not interested again, he'll take care of it after he gets back. "They have a government, they don't need me to figure out the little petty stuff like this."

Peter is mollified, feeling Inl Thur is being more respectful.
He considers a moment, and gives a bow of respect.
"I was rude too. I'm sorry."

Peter's mind races. He weighs who may need his help most and is distracted by thoughts of meeting dragons...

Woman: "Also, please be sure to tell them when we restore the world the sky will be coming back with the moon and sun and stars."


Ink Thur doesn't acknowledge the apology.



"So those are the questions. If you make it off this world before we do."

The woman makes sure to mention her name is Zin Sel, Master and Mistress of the Moon.



Ink Thur says he's going by the name Incarius around here, and please don't blow his cover. Incarius Black, should a specifier be needed.


Peter returns to the infinity crew.



Leon: "Who was that?"

If Peter was interrupted and no one has heard the name...

"No one of importance. A waste of time, apparently."
