"I want to figure out how to get everyone in your world to at least agree to a truce."

"If defense magic protects against devils I can throw money at defense mages and cover lots of people. They'll be terrified of anyone they can't control."

Permalink

"Yeah. We just need to figure out how to test it."

Permalink

"I - ugh. Am I the one you should be talking to about this if you want to do good? I. Think I might be evil."

Permalink

"Why do you think so?"

Permalink

"Said so earlier. Killed a lot of devils. They couldn't fight back at all... Poison."

Permalink

"I don't know if that makes you a bad person. It probably doesn't matter, though, you don't have to be a good person to bring peace."

Permalink

"It definitely makes me feel like I've hardly got any business planning to kill more people, this time with made up laws behind me!"

Permalink

"What are you worried about, enforcing the peace or something else?"

Permalink

"I'm not the right person for this, because when I got this magic power maybe the fourth thing I did with it was kill people and that is not something that someone you want making the rules - or enforcing them - does with their magic powers! It's just not."

Permalink

"Okay. Do you want to introduce me to someone else from your world, maybe one of your priests?"

Permalink

"Well, they're all... Well. Maybe. I don't know. I don't know what's best. It's not fun."

Permalink

"There are books and things you can learn from, I don't know if there are videos about this but I bet there are, but honestly it's just really hard to make good choices about big populations."

Permalink

Sigh. "Time is paused here anyway. Things aren't... Aren't getting worse if I sulk and think for a while."

Permalink

"Yeah. I might open my door before you're done unless you really want some time before my people start coming through."

Permalink

"...I'm gonna go take a nap. I'll come back later and maybe you'll still be here. Or not. Bar? Cheap room? Anything with a bed... Thanks." Sigh.

She's gotten used to sleeping alone, at least. Even if it always feels weird and vulnerable.

When she's gone, he asks Bar what publications are available from her world. If any.

With cultures as young as the ones in this world it can be somewhat tricky to draw the line. Most written things are meant for specific people, or for record-keeping among a private caste. I have a few declarations from governments, if you would like to read those.

Permalink

"That's better than nothing. Yes, please."

By order of the Good King Phyklas the Strong, each village is required to provide thirty strong men for service in the army being assembled to defend the Saltlands from the King of Bones. If not enough men are available, the village may send goods and supplies worth not less than twenty silver coins in place of each man. To defend the realm is the duty of the people.

 

The High Council of Freshwater Bay proclaims glorious victory over the uncivilized tribes of Redrock and the lands beyond! Hail the great general Syarfis! Hail the brave sailors of Swordfish Group! All glory and honor is theirs as the stolen riches retreived from the defeated foe are returned to their rightful owners!

 

The vast lands of Hoskplain are populated by many and diverse peoples, but we all share a common heritage and common interests. Chief Senerital of the Boar Tusk Tribe invites all other tribes of the Hoskplain to join her at a great feast to be held at the summer solstice two years from now below the sacred place called Thunder Rock. She will distribute gifts and discuss the future of the Hoskplain. All are welcome!

Permalink

"How recent is that last one? I might want to meet Chief Senerital."

Permalink

Regrettably, it was published eighteen years ago and I have no way to tell how the feast went or if Chief Senerital is still alive.

Permalink

"Thanks anyway. Is this everything published there in the last few decades, then?"

Permalink

Yes. The first written work widely distributed enough that I may show it to you was written ninety-three years ago. It announced a queen's death in a place called Numiakra.

Permalink

"Can you get me published art?"
