I don't think that would be Science - you're not trying to explain cutting-edge research here. I think it falls more under the domain of Rapport - you're trying to explain in a friendly and calming manner.

So... blue text. What does that mean? Is this combat like when the others met the Primate? 'Cause I'm going to be honest, that part made no sense to me whatsoever...

I think it's to help differentiate between what's being spoken in English and what's being spoken in Elene, with blue being Elene.

Oh haha. I've always been good at way overcomplicating simple things.

Yeah. Sorry, I should have explained that - I noticed that I was mixing languages quite a bit and thought I could do with an easy visual identifier. Anything written in Blue is said in Elene.

This way I don't have to keep mentioning the language every time anyone speaks.

I was purposely not talking about that on the off chance we had eavesdroppers. Also was planning on asking Vanire about that since he seems like he has more ability to help us. I don't think Lenda has the kind of resources we need to get ourselves going.

Arkady is assuming that the Earl knows that being overheard can easily get him killed, and took precautions accordingly. He also wants to drag the subject bodily away from the implied future danger the Terrans pose to anyone who might cross them and back onto the problem they can help solve now. A number of reputable local witnesses have seen how much damage just three colonists can do; he doesn't want to take the chance that the powers that be will decide that saving the Queen isn't worth letting the others wake up and arm themselves (or that she will decide that if saved).

Consider that the Earl has just described a military threat which is basically more than his nation can stand, and the Terrans at the table are being casually dismissive of it. If they're not delusional (and at least one local at the table knows they're not), then just as soon as they 'get back on their feet' the kingdom is theirs in all but name (unless they want the name too).

Besides, everything Arkady just said has already been touched on aside from the name of the poison; and a well informed local could probably deduce the name anyway.

Lenda's more an informational resource than a goods and equipment resource. He can happily give you history from almost anywhere and current information on local politics. Not so much physical goods.

Kaijin is currently having login problems. He says to continue without him. Specifically:

"at any rate, can someone post in CCC's game in the FRPG and tell him I can't log in, so they should proceed with the understanding that I can't do anything for now?"

Ooooh. I hope that gets fixed soon, then.

Thanks for passing the message along.

If no-one has anything further to ask the Earl, then young Talen will meet you about two minutes after you leave the tea-shop.

I should really be using this blue text more consistently in both threads.

I've been using #0040FF, if anyone's curious.

Does anyone object to talking to Vanire before we leave and trying to convince him to give us food to take back to the ship as payment for services rendered? I'd even be willing to try and negotiate defense contracts with him where we help patrol lands outside our forest and swamp in exchange for a budget to help keep our soldiers supplied or something similar.
