"They see how easy it is to blend in as statues, how easy it is to hunt, how much energy they can get from the local species, how dangerous the locals are. Stuff like that."

Permalink

"Hunting is exactly the sort of thing I think you should be transitioning away from."

Permalink

"You didn't ask them for ideas. You asked them what they did."

Permalink

"You must have misunderstood me. I'm trying to figure out where you should go to try the new plan. Information about the local species might be valuable, I guess, what makes them more or less, uh, filling?"

Permalink

"How long they live."

Permalink

"Okay. So, maybe you should go somewhere with long lived people, but before you've ever been there before."

Permalink

"That could be done."

Permalink

"And we need to design signs for me to write for you to hold."

Permalink

"They don't know anything about signs."

Permalink

"It's something with writing on it. I can write something that anyone who can read at all will be able to read, and then you can copy that wherever you go, as long as you're exact."

Permalink

"They don't know how to write."

Permalink

"They don't have to write, just copy. Can they make marks on things?"

Permalink

"They could? They don't have ink or anything."

Permalink

"Can you take things with you when you go places?"

Permalink

"So you can take signs I write for you, but you should also learn to make marks in things - the ground, if nothing else - that match."

Permalink

"How do they do that?"

Permalink

"Their hands should work, they have hands."

Permalink

"I think you need to be more specific."

Permalink

Promise assesses the characteristics of the floor she is standing on.

Permalink

Rough, solid stone.

Permalink

"I can't write on this. Is there soft dirt somewhere?"

Permalink

"There's what used to be a garden."

Permalink

"Where's that?"

Permalink

"If you close your eyes, they'll take you."
