Indeed.

That changes the entire dynamic of this conversation.

I think I just had an idea. I think it's safe to say that Felix has had enough time to fiddle with recorded audio to make it a touch clearer and to separate it out so that the conversation with the thieves is no longer a part of the recording.

What say I present an mp3 player with a speaker, make the claim it gave us an oracle just as his Ram's Horn does for him, then play the audio of the conversation the Primate had. Tell him this is the Oracle we received and, by following it, we were able to prevent the murder of decent, faithful church goers. Engage in more social combat to convince Aramsham we're on his side and Martel is not to be trusted and that he should even be arrested for committing terrible acts against the Elene God.

It's an insanely risky gamble, but it could work splendidly.

If Felix is willing to spend a Fate point to make it happen, then Felix can have that recording on him and ready to play.

Eight.

No-one's really hurting for FATE points right now.

We probably shouldn't play up the 'decent church goer' angle; to Aramsham, the mainstream Elenes are heretics. Probably better to play it as we foiled a heretic prelate looking to hurt innocents in a game of church politics.

I'll go ahead and buy the mp3 player with the audio of the Primate's orders for Martel.

I'll spend another point on Arkady's If you want something done, do it yourself aspect to boost his roll against Martel.

Yeah, I didn't expect that to take long. You have six Fate points remaining.

I've edited the post, but to summarise: Aramsham has the aspect Senile while Martel has a Rivalry aspect with Sir Sparhawk. Due to Arkady's choice of stunts, both of these aspects are central to the characters themselves, and their motivations.

Hmm... I'm getting an idea. Can I use my universal gadget to have a hidden voice thrower? Something that'll project audio files and text to speech messages to a spot I want it to go.

You can, but bear in mind that Martel and Aramsham will get a roll to notice you fiddling with a strange device just before the voice starts talking. You'd be rolling Deceit.

Arkady is tempted to just say 'A place called England. It took us years to get here.' and let them make of it what they will.

Go for it. As long as Arkady is prepared to answer *where* exactly this place called England is...

A bit more than a smidge, and a bit less than some. Mind you, there's a fair chance he'd be pointing some variation of up...
