Still not taking over, really! really... Those other guys are trying to take over the city! And trying to dominate us, no less! No, bad military! No cake! Bad ringleaders, no get to live!

He really doesn't have time to play anymore. Which is too bad. He always had my back in the war games we played together.

Megapost indeed. Shocked

There are a few misunderstandings though. Two in fact.

  1. The Passing Through office (the Exchange's public front) has already been put in place by Kolson a long time ago, before we even went to Sho. Van is in charge of that office. I assigned Qui-Gon there since he can help Van with any ongoing negotiations until I send him on a more important mission.
  2. The Guardians are not going to Glenden Woods through the Hub, but on foot. Only Zeiss will use the Hub. I might be willing to give the special Hub right to Higaide's second-in-command, but no one else. That's not the kind of thing we can give freely to people.
Nice speeches by the way.

Alright, then Qui-Gon reports to Van.
I didn't say they were going through the hub. Them suckers be walkin'. I might be persuaded to give them a couple wagons to carry their stuff...

The changes were made. The 'guardians' will head out as soon as they are ready to, to meet Zeiss with as little delay between their arrival and his as possible.

I can't imagine that delay to be shorter than a week. From looking at the map, I think they have to walk near 1000 km before they get to Glenden Woods. I'll set up an Exchange post there instead and give Higaide's second-in-command the Hub right (explaining carefully not to tell anyone about it and to use it wisely, then repeating what I just said to make sure she understands).

Hmm, I know Javan went back to his parents' place for this week, so I'm not sure if we're supposed to wait for him to post something. I know he was going to stick around Kolson for a while, but I feel uncomfortable deciding what he's going to do since I have control of said red mage for now.

The GM shall judge.

Here's the pertinent question for me; will you guys be waiting for Higaide to return before moving? Because it will be a little bit... especially if Higaide fails to convince the Olthoi that him and his allies overthrowing the government through force is a sufficient reason to hurry back.

Javan is NPCed until next word. The internet isn't reliable right now and there was a local blackout for most of today because of the rain, and I don't think it's going to get much better until I'm back home.

At least my N3DS works. Phew.

Javan is a NPC for now. Huh... I would feel more comfortable if Higaide "played" our fairy friend for the moment. I don't mind doing it, but I don't like taking over half the party, especially since Javan has such a different mindset than mine. Also, what are you playing on that 3DS?

As for your question Arch, I can't speak for the others but considering they pretty much left me in charge of the coup d'état, I'll just make the decision: we'll strike after we gained enough support from the nobles and all our pieces are in place. If that happens before Higaide comes back, so be it. But the exact date? I can't tell you since I don't know when we'll be ready. You know what the plan is so I guess you can make an estimate yourself.

Also, I can imagine Higaide trying to convince the Olthoi.

Olthoi: "Why do you want to go back to Holtburg so badly?"
Higaide: "We are preparing a coup d'état."
Olthoi: "..."
Higaide: "It's true."
Olthoi: "...We can drop you off directly at the cemetery if you want. It would save you the effort."

I'm back Zeiss so you don't need to worry about Kolson anymore. I had lots of fun at the wedding but man am I happy to be back home.

Yo yo yo! *throws Kolson's character sheet back at him*

Also, I think we can just stick Javan as Kolson's bodyguard/lie detector for now. No real need for someone to play him, now that I pondered the meaning of NPC.

Here's the important question, why would the Olthoi mind what we're doing? You think they could spare a liter of fuel to bring Higaide to us in the name of stopping baddies. "So listen, these guys are bad. We don't like bad. You don't like bad, right? What would really help us get rid of the bad a lot sooner is if you set me down near our headquarters so we can take the fight to the bad to make our deadline, because we're kind of on a timetable. Here's a platinum bar to make up for the cost. Do you have change? I'd really like to get change for it." That makes sense to me.

Thanks K, but no need. Leave Javan NPCed with Kolson for now as originally planned since he's back.

For what I'm playing on the N3DS, I'm mainly switching between Etrian Odyssey IV, Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies that I bought in the eShop and Fire Emblem Awakening that I got last week, used and dirty cheap on MercadoLivre, brazillian's eBay. Xenoblade is on wait for when I'm done with Etrian Odyssey IV.

Nonsense! Javan just thinks you love bananas too much.

Also, I played Fire Emblem Awakening (still haven't finished it because I decided to restart a new game) and I hope you have fun with this one. I did recommend it and it would be a shame if it turned out to be "meh" for you.

What.

Fine. Fixed. "In post", as they like to say. Because player is stupid, also because drama.

Huh. I was assuming Rory deliberately didn't tell them about the nightmares of Osteth, so that they wouldn't be demoralized for the lengthy trip... a willingness to lie to his own people to do what he felt was best for them, even knowing it'd probably get some of them killed the rest would survive kind of thing.
