Possible answers to the question that was asked:

A) First we should test the loyalty of the Archer.

B) First we should go to the village.

C) First we should finish the village leader's assessment.

D) Other suggestions.

Save the assessing for last so Gram has the most time to make things look good. Out of the other two... loyalty of the archer would be useful. We could have him join Dredge as an inside man if he passes.

Aye, lets not keep the poor boy waiting. Whatever we have him do should be done publicly, since opinion of him is currently quite low. He'll be proving himself not just to us, but to all our followers.

Let her attend. Just warn her that if she gets too out of line like she did she will be punished. She'll get leeway of course. We want to know if our plans are bad. She'll keep her council seat but showing poor judgement at a high level has to have consequences even if it's so minor that we have to dole out a wrist slapping. Which applies to everyone at the council.

Possible answers to the question that was asked:

A) Describe all the events in a frustrating tone.

B) Describe all the events in a tired tone.

C) Describe all the events in a matter-of-fact tone.

D) Other suggestions.
>>
No. 1083026 ID: e9dcf5

Well matter-of-fact would sound heartless. Our rat died, rage died... but just unsure which of the other two would be appropriate. Will leave this to others.
>>
No. 1083034 ID: e51896

Oh, Gram, Gram, Gram... that was supposed to be an outfit you have to wear as punishment... but now that I think about it, I think it's actually a good idea that Gram is wearing the jester outfit for this meaning. if Gram acts out, hey, that just means it'll be something our guest expects from Gram. Perhaps we should consider switching Gram's job to court jester depending on how things go here,

I say D, Other. Spread out and change the tone of your voice appropriate to each of the events that you went through. I think the key here is to not describe ALL events with just ONE singular tone throughout, but to tell certain events with a tone that would be appropriate for the different events we tell. As >>1083026 said, we don't want to come off as heartless if we describe all events as matter of factly, especially when describing what happened to our first casualty, but we also don't want to come across as weak if we explain all the events as tired or frustrating

for example, for the death of our spy mouse, our first casualty, have a tone be regretful and melancholic, and then a tone of determination when explaining that you will make sure that their death will not be for naught when Dredge eventually comes to confront us. for talking about ramming rage, have a frustrated tone about how disrespectful he was with how he would have treated your goblins if you sent some to him, and having to settle the resulting fight, but change the tone to one of confidence when explaining about dealing with the problem without casualties on your side. Things like receiving the gift of apples from a villager should be happy for another example

Wa ha ha, Gramleza has fallen for our trap. Now everyone will expect disrespect from her, her actions will have less bite to them.

I would say (B), its been a harrowing time, with more trouble on its way. But there's much reason to hope as well. So just a mildly tired tone.
>>
No. 1083219 ID: 27fceb

Let's describe it all in the matter-of-fact, it won't show us as heartless but more that despite everything we still are standing strong.

Honestly it changes little. We fight - if he dies, other heroes get a shot at us. Still, perhaps it does help in an unlikely scenario. We capture him alive. While he lives, we are ironically protected from other heroes because he still has the exclusive rights while he poses little threat from within our dungeons. Loopholes!

Wait a second... Oh man this just got highly useful. How much does it take to purchase one? Once we've dealt with the invading force... We could help Clara buy one. With that we effectively nullify heroes as long as she's alive. So victory scenarios have expanded. We had military and diplomatic - now we have economic as well.
>>
No. 1083425 ID: 5ebd37

Yes, however, it probably wouldn't last, as the guild will ask questions when Clara continuously fails to deliver the bounty she explicitly claimed dibs on.

No. 1084130 ID: aa22fd

Well we've got nothing she'd want to steal... that we know of. Wormworks, since you know this place do you have what she would steal?
>Steals regardless of bribes
Plan differed a little. We'd bribe her to backstab Dredge and his forces rather than not steal. We'd only pay when the job's done. Has that been attempted?
>What to do
Pettiness is unbefitting of a royal Abdle. Do remember your life is on the line here too. Such uncooperativeness is unpragmatic with the situation we have.
>Dead Covario bones
Sounds like a job for the Heroes guild. We're a little busy to act on this. Even if we had a reason to. We can give Clara supplies but that's about all.
>Actus Opus
We met before... Did Farm Knight gain status? Either he calls off the dogs or we keep defending ourselves. What's he suggesting we do? We're not gonna lay down and die.

A) Wow, Abdle, I didn't know you were so eager to talk about your sister. Since we apparently can't have any secrets lets discuss how you feel about her, hmm? Or would you prefer that we let some painful subjects lie?

As for the bones, is that even a problem? Do the bones retain something of the spirit or soul, or are they just raw materials?
>>
No. 1084413 ID: 7d1aad

One another thing, ask Worm Works if he can talk with Necromancer about the bones of your previous opponent and if he can give them to us

C. Quick! Change the subject. Here's a thought, ask if our cat enemy has ever made a deal with this necromancer or bone buyer before, like if she has ever sold the bones of her enemies for a quick way to make pay

because there could be a possibility she could send the bones of our spy to them and we may have to deal with it spying on us in a worst case scenario. You don't need to mention that part to our guest though.

if she's known to do that, we might have to amp up security around the castle and make sure they don't leak information.

side note to self: next time you send out a spy, don't let them wear anything that resembles that they came from our kingdom. I think our enemies were able to figure out we were spying on them by the symbol on its little hat.
>>
No. 1084536 ID: 7c55ad

Now that I think about it, I wonder if Iron Dredge ever did business with the bone buyer too, considering he had our dead rat pal there last we saw.
>>
No. 1084538 ID: 6e53a8

We're in a meeting. Save the pleasure for after business. Sheesh, what is she the paladin of to be so shameless? Lust deity or deities? So what does Actus expect us to do, not defend ourselves? For that matter Covario or the overlords should be of greater concern than us.

C) Is this normal behavior for Clara? And what was with that urge to kiss her a minute ago? Does Worm Works even have a dick?
Something funny is going on around here.

That's probably the best thing we can do right now. we'll need to call a doctor too.

At the very least, that trainwreck of a meeting is over. I believe it's off to see the archer after we get her to a bed and get a doctor over, yeah?
>>
No. 1085014 ID: 0f4fb5

First make sure her neck and spine are unbroken because we'd need magic to fix those issues. Second, once you're sure those are fine move her body with a stretcher to a bed. Even if you don't have one just improvise with 2 poles and a large sheet/cloth because it will minimize further damage. Lastly, figure out what damage she has so you can focus on what to fix. She might have a concussion if she's unconscious. How ironic that paladin healing magic would be very useful...
>>
No. 1085045 ID: 5ebd37

Well. Demote Gramleza from jester to prisoner, at least until we have time to have a discussion about her temper. I'm tempted to say Clara should wake up in a cell too, but healing her injuries takes priority.

lets forget about insubordinates and paladins who are apparently really easy to defeat, and move on to testing the archer.
