Morning breaks on the city and the air is dusty. I wake up in Sweat’s apartment, on my back, and watch a bug I don’t know the name of crawl across the ceiling. I think I forgot to call my brother.

I thought the implication was that they'd already finished their first two tasks because they were easy? We should clarify with them
No. 918532 ID: c1eaac


but then why specifically say they don't remember what the tasks were? something seems fishy.
No. 918536 ID: f905c7

When we first learned about thralls we were told that the first two tasks are usually normal/achievable things, and it's the third one which is the kicker.

Shout and whisper's exact phrasing was
>“The ffffffirst, aa, the first t-two, were eeaaAAsy… sso easy I d, I don’t, I don’t, aaaaa, I don’t r-remEMber…”

They were easy, not are easy. But you're totally right that there's some ambiguity so we should definitely clear that up so we're not trying to do the hard thing without getting the easy stuff out of the way.

Would you normally be able to tell how damp that preacher is just by radar, or is this a new insight our optics are providing?

Regardless, I'd advise resisting the temptation to make any big melodramatic announcements, at least until after you've sorted out the actual problem under the lake. A shouting match draws attention, and the repair work might turn out to be more difficult or time-consuming than you expect (so getting people's hopes up is risky). If you're just a blowhard making unreasonable claims, the priests could potentially restore their long-run credibility by having you quietly murdered, but if the lake has already been fixed and you've got a better on-the-spot explanation for it than they do, that's harder to cover up.

>as soon as you heat it up to try and reforge it, it turns into regular steel
Nano-structured plating; you know how chain mail is a bunch of links welded together to create a weak yet flexible steel shirt? Now try making the links smaller than bugs and packed so tight they make that thick plate. Stuff like this was made through industrial processes - it was easy and cheap to produce AFTER you purchased about three cities' incomes worth of blacksmithing tools and a workshop the size of three spires. And even then one of these 'factories' could only produce one ingredient which were carted over to another factory for further processing. The whole thing became one giant homework problem and whoever solved part of it got showered in gold.

Man, those were the days... if only we didn't have to keep our owning rights individualized for such a huge machine. Corruption spreads fast when every customer 'knows' they can make something themselves for $$$ but the factories know they can make it for $/2.

>Preacher: They tried to make cheap knockoffs of what God gave them
Fair enough -
>Preacher: They spurned God and He turned his back on them
- I do feel guilty, we should be better people -
>Preacher: And then they tried to make false purposes but they died
- but it's not your right, Preacherman, to enslave us to a purpose we don't believe in! We wanted to see how far we could go!

It's mindless adherence to dogma that has brought these people down this path to begin with. Only through uncovering the secrets of the ancients can they be saved.

Go to the room with the box and close the door. Then see if you can use the key to lock and unlock it, and then enter the room. Or maybe do that from the inside.

If that doesn't work, then go to the intersection and go in the right (map-wise) direction.

:kloldril: It looks like we can only go down that hall one way, but there's no door or anything, it's just gone when you look back. Going right at the intersection goes to the room with the box in it, so we check out the left side. There's a couple of turns before we see anything, there's a dull reddish glow coming off one side and a round hole with warm air coming out of it. on the other side.

I don't smell anything gassy, and we haven't tried the key on the box room door either. Should we check the holes here or try that first?

Instead of the scream that had sounded as a doorbell in Amaranth’s shop, this one makes the sound of a hundred screeching harpies. It’s pitched to be barely audible over the music playing inside and ambient conversation, but it still makes you flinch.

Alright. You’re ready. Strange minor-key (and maybe backwards) versions of a couple of songs you’ve heard on the radio are playing in the background, and you’re ready for your date. You stand up straight, and…

Realize that along with your negligence in learning your date’s name, you know absolutely nothing about how she looks. Fuck.

Your short burst of confidence immediately leaves you as you dig out your phone, fumbling to text Amaranth.

To: flower emoji
Hey what does Eury look like

You wait for a response. Someone opens the door behind you and grumbles when they find you standing directly in the entryway, and you wince and shuffle to the side. Checking your phone again is fruitless. Amaranth probably didn’t expect a cry for help quite this quickly. She must be busy. Shit. Why the hell would she have so much faith in you.

Well, on the upside, you’re pretty much the only human in this place, so you shouldn’t be difficult to locate when she shows up. Or maybe she’s already here. You just need to wait and act casual until she notices you and comes over to initiate conversation. An excellent start to your date, in which you establish yourself as too much of a mess to take any sort of initiative.

>Well it would get you onto the dance floor for some investigating.
>Might as well, you have to blend to look around the party and try to find the demon.

"My pleasure," I reply, a little mystified, but offer them a hand. They take it, gently, and hold their cane out to the side, pressing it into Brigid's bemused hands.

"Would you mind holding this for just a moment?" they ask. "It's not so easy to dance with it in the way."

Before she can respond, the stranger has already swept me out onto the dance floor.

The music is a brisk waltz. I lead. They're a good dancer, I can tell, although I can feel them putting some of their weight on me as we dance.

>This is suspicious.

Yeah. I don't disagree.

>Introduce yourself in character.

I clear my throat after a few steps of silent dancing.

"I'm....Hamlet, I guess. Prince Hamlet, of Denmark. Can I ask who I have the pleasure of dancing with?"

God, this sounds so stupid.

"Prince Vermillion," replies the stranger smoothly. "It's a pleasure to meet you. Royal aspirations, I see?"

If they know about the demon, why are they wasting their time occupying yours? They clearly know that you're here because of it, so why the mystery? Dramatic personality, a distraction, a test? Maybe you could get more from them by staying but I'm worried every bit of information is going to be behind a couple "Can I not ask a beautiful stranger to the dance floor?"s or other similar lines.

Maybe you could bluff at leaving to see their reaction?

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single demon in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a spouse.

I can’t believe this day has finally come. After a decade of pleading, Master Theodolite has finally approved my expedition, and secured funding from the royal treasury. I’m reeling; I can barely see straight - it’s finally going to happen.

I’m finally going to venture outside the walls, and see what, if anything, is left.

With Kran to assist with carrying the load and Uzu's alarmingly effective bartering, the rest of the Brack Bazaar branch of the shopping trip went quickly and uneventfully. As I expected, it was the best place to find camping and wilderness survival supplies, though the merchants were more used to dealing with hunters traveling into the glasswastes than timid scholars preparing for long sea voyages. We also procured a stock of medicine and cloth to use for bandages, repairs, and any other miscellaneous uses that might arrive. (The cloth was surprisingly fine for such a low price, and as Uzu had been the one to recommend the vendor I did my best not to question its origins.)

It was also alarmingly easy to find weapons. It seemed everywhere we turned, we saw displays of swords, knives, bows, and other, nastier things. At one point a merchant attempted to convince us that it would be madness to leave the walls without a spellstriker, of all things, but in my private opinion it would be rather more suicidal to come within a stone's throw of one of those infernal contraptions. I did purchase a crossbow for hunting purposes, as well as a few assorted knives of good quality for various purposes. We would need to go to the Heartmarket for the quantities of travel rations we needed, or the Seamarket if we felt up to several months of surviving primarily on preserved fish, but everything else seemed accounted for.

All in all, I was feeling quite confident about our purchases, but before we left the Bazaar I paused to ask my companions if there was anything else they felt we should bring which my list hadn't included.

Otherwise outside of food it seems you're good to go though maybe a fishing rod or two or even a fishing net to catch some extra food just encase you are out on the sea a little longer then you plan to might not be a bad purchase if you have the spare coin for it.

And as the steel stabs
You feel your life fade
And it's very sad

The skeleton is sad
Because you are gone
And to become a skele

But one day you will
And he will be waiting
You may be friends
May even start dating

"Hey, so, boss? It's me… again," you say, cringing at yourself. "Just wondering whether you'll be in today. Got the store open! I think. Did it the same as yesterday, so it should work out. Uh." You swallow. There's probably a hundred other things you should mention, but you have no clue what they would be. "Give me a ring when you have the chance, yeah?" You haven't heard from her since your first day, when she said she was heading out on an errand, and to close up by yourself.

This is day four.

Theyre a pair of lovers conning men and women and others alike out of their wealth, power, and vitality.

They're hostesses at an elite bar catering to the wealthy and eccentric. Tonight is your first night there.

Lyrie likes to sing, and has spent time as an opera diva in the 1700s, she can play the harp and the keytar. She hates stiletto heels and the color orange. She loves motorbikes and fluffy blankets.

Lilo likes making soap, and doing people's make up. She shreds the bass. She hates grumpy people. She can throw knives.

Lilo calls her brand Rebel Victorian - Take a Victorian ballgown, and then cut it up until it gets an adult rating. Then add latex for the hell of it. She loves exploring new forms of sexual behavior. She hates laws that have no common sense reason (laws against driving with no hands are appreciated by her, but laws that prevent people from decorating their own homes because of 'standards' irritates her)

Lyria likes to wear tye-die shirts and spiked leather jackets, anything that combines war with peace. She loves thai food and sweets. She hates being lied to.

Tell the Voice of the Crown that a new impregnation would either kill both of them or simply result in the same slow growth.

Then tell it that, surely, as the Voice of the Crown, it has the knowledge about what a fetus needs to grow, right? Rather than pulling it out, they should be providing it with whatever nourishment and non-stressful environment (that is this place) that it needs for growth.

This guy doesn't seem like he's going to be very helpful beyond getting you the equipment, the big girl however seems quite eager to answer your questions for someone walking around a secret underground crime base, perhaps if she's still nearby you could get some information out of her while you're reading through your own dossier? Telling her that you think you're staying close to her residence and pretending to be lost/asking her to guide you there when you're done here could get her to stick around.
As there seems to be some awkwardness between them, perhaps the big Neumono's continued presence might get the guy to leave which may give you some opportunities to use this computer as you please.

Maybe ask him to get the equipment before you try and get rid of him, just in case you decide to use it.

Ask him who he is and what he does. If he is a medical man, as seems wise, ask him what he feels is missing from the information presented. You might get another peek at your new big friend's information by checking an example of what info is available on someone who's actively tested.

Things that can't be reliably known through illicit observation would include:
- How sharp your senses are, and what range they have - these would require your feedback.
- Your aptitude at specific, systematic mental and physical tests - things you would know are a test when you do them. These would produce far more thorough, reliable and useful information than any passive observation.
- Any test that would require large or bulky equipment or would otherwise have been noticed, e.g. CT scans, x-rays, etc.
- Any test measuring response to extreme or unusual circumstances, e.g. resistance to disease, resistance to radiation, severe injury, extreme starvation or thirst, pregnancy, blood loss, hormones, drugs and so on. You probably don't want to do any of these yourself, but fresh blood/tissue samples, allowing observation of living cells, might provide answers for some of them.
- Any test that would require you to do something abnormal - stretch as far as you can, try to lift objects too heavy for you, sit and do nothing/meditate for long periods, etc.
- Any questions regarding experiences inaccessibly to anyone but you, e.g. can you consciously think about multiple things at the same time, do you have lucid dreams more often than a normal person, can you stop yourself thinking of a pink rhinoceros, that sort of thing.
- Any action, or reaction or interaction with certain things, that you would have specifically avoided before. Do you react to (or provoke a reaction from) ancient imperial technology, do you have control over normally autonomic processes in your body, etc.

Can a machine dream?

It’s an odd question, one the prewar scientists often debated when the midnight oil was burning low but the actual work ahead of them was too daunting a prospect to consider. Could a machine, insomuch as it was a being whose desires were derived from dozens upon dozens of algorithms, ever understand that natural state of blissful, protean nonsense that took the human mind beyond the realm of logical limitations?

Even with the dawn of the first AIs or perhaps because of that inciting incident, the question only seemed to grow more muddled over time. As machines learned to think, to plan, as they took on ambition and personalities of their own, the question of what constituted the final, impassable bridge between what was human and what was artificial, that most sacred of lines, was an ever-shifting topic of speculation.

In the end, dreams became a common subject. Could something that was wholly logical, whose perceptions and responses could be reduced to lines of code: could such a thing as never even needed sleep to begin with, enter a state of unknowing and yet somehow revelatory unconsciousness? Even if it could, at that point, would it be a dream in truth or merely a simulation, something inherently bound to a perfect and rational order?

Perhaps, in the end, the creators feared what they had forged in their own image. Perhaps that is why, when the technology was there to create hundreds if not thousands of artificial intelligences, a virtual army that mimicked the intellectual prowess of the greatest scientists of their age, they limited themselves instead to what they could reliably hold in the palms of their hands.

“I won’t sugar coat it,” you begin, trying not to strike a callous tone. “Nothing down below is in peak condition by a long shot, and the part of the network that’s been cut off is in even worse shape.”

“Is it the pumps?”

“The water pumps, air pumps, and the filtration systems,” you explain, noting the creases of concern on the canine’s face. “Give it a couple more weeks, a month at most, and I think at least one major sanitation and oxygen filtration system out of three will probably be down for good. The subsequent increase in strain across the remaining network will probably mean complete lights out within the next two months.”

“What’s worse is that those systems must be the ones that are only accessible from inside the tank,” he conjectures with a whine. “Otherwise, I likely would have found the damages during my external sweeps.”

“We might be able to selectively shut down parts of the tank for cleaning and maintenance,” you suggest. “The bigger problem we’d have to solve first though, is just getting the actual replacement hardware. Vault-grade construction for self-sustaining aquatic ecosystems isn’t exactly common.”

Understandably, the news puts something of an end to idle conversation, Theodore becoming wrapped up in his own thoughts as he begins plotting a course toward the ever-more turbulent future. You leave him to it, praying for your own part now that you’ll have some good tidings to share on the return trip.

To your surprise, your return to the upper levels (while lonesome) does find you face-to-face with your sortie, the groups of hounds all fit and formed up around the elevator door with tails held rigidly at attention.

“At ease,” you order through the Pup-Boy, relieved as they immediately respond. “Meet up at 20:00.”

Again, they seem to have no difficulty understanding at least that much, the ordered masses quickly breaking back down into an uncoordinated horde of wagging tails that scatter to the four winds. As convenient as it would be to begin running drills with the group and figuring out the exact limits of their understanding, there is still just so much to do.

“Aria,” you call through the network, tapping into her live feed just long enough to see a pair of Mr. Handy arms fussing over a pile of warm, writhing lumps. “I thought you were going to see about repairing the other Mr. Handy’s.”

“But I did!” she insists. “I reprogrammed the functional repair automata with some of Jeremy’s subroutines and maintenance presets before leaving the job to them!”

That… That’s actually surprisingly competent.
