In another hour, a menu pops up on one wall, with a bunch of food options.

Peter writes up a fairly good description for two worlds and explores the menu and tried getting something for himself and Goliath.

He writes about the Karana world and the savage jungle one, but doesn't mention Doctors without borders or interdimensional organizations.

It seems he can get as much food as we wants, for himself and for the dog. The computer warns him that it has not calibrated his caloric needs yet and cannot advise him on a proper diet.



he writes quite a bit. He is not called for again. Anything to do before he goes to sleep?

Peter will ask about the available foods and order a double cheeseburger and something appropriate for Goliath.

He will cuddle up with Goliath and sleep off his too large meal.

The computer chirps at him for eating like that. The food shows up just outside his door... which is locked. Eventually someone shows up to point a gun at the door while they open and close it, letting the food in.



He drifts off to sleep, dreaming of a wild forest filled with gods. He dreams of Arn Ona, with what looks like Peter's clothing tucked into her belt.

Peter will attempt to turn the dream to Thuroma, since he is supposed to report in there... (feel free to make any rolls)

Peter yanks his dreams back to Thuroma. He aims for his chambers in Thuroma, and wakes up. The contrast of the two chambers strike him: his plush prison was made of plastic and electronics, while this place is made of polished stone and hand-crafted furnishings.

They've been decorating the place while he's been gone, with insignia and statues of many of the Gods. Ink-Thur is prominent, as is Yu-Pelor. Goliath barks twice, and a junior priest runs down the hall. "Emissary, we are pleased to see you have arrived in the night. I will fetch your secretary."

He bows and moves to walk out.

'I'm starting to get pretty good at this...' Peter thinks to himself as he gets some clothing.


"Thanks!"

Peter fetches a bowl of water for Goliath and finds something for them to eat and tells the secretary everything he can recall from the messages of the gods.

He asks if they have any messages pending to go out, and if there have been any developments with the situation here and with the Americans.

The most prominent messages are of course the fate of Arn-Oda and the location of Ink-Thur.



"Arn-Oda was rendered dormant by an old but mysterious foe"
"The unavailable Gods are off seeking to avenge him"


The secretary pushes him "Really, that's all you got? They really do like to keep this matter close to their chests."



He transcribes the other messages that he remembers... he does very well, especially given that he spent a day on a new world.



There are a lot of requests lined up for him. His secretary has a list, and "optimal chants" to remember them by.



Half the americans have been sent home. He has several notes of gratitude from them. Their situation seems to have been worse than the four Peter was kept with.



When he requests food, the secretary says "do you desire to eat privately or with a group?"

Peter will eat in a soical setting.

He will go through the chants a few times and try and commit them to memory. If they were able to send him some school books from the Americans, he will please his mother and spend some time on his mundane studies as well.
