Nod!

"Huh. Next time you can talk to us I'd like to know about your world's technologies."

Permalink

"Tomorrow."

"Yeah. I can plan stuff I want to ask you, too."

Permalink

"Yes."

She pauses to think about other recent technological breakthroughs that aren't electricity. "Do you guys have vaccines?"

Permalink

"No."

Well, she knows anything about scientific ways to treat and prevent disease, so she can relay those. "There's still a lot we haven't figured out, and medical and biological alchemists are kinda rare unfortunately..."

Nod nod.

Is there anything else Belmarniss wants her to elaborate on?

Permalink

Belmarniss seems content for the time being.

Bellona has a small side room in the dorm suite, since they're staying here for a while. They've been using it to store books. Belmarniss can stay there - Bellona doesn't actually need to sleep.

Convenient.

In the morning she preps new spells.

Bellona and Emma seem to have spent some portion of the night arguing about something; they're a bit tense with each other. There's a city map spread out over most of the table in the main room that Bellona's staring at, and a lot of encoded notes.

"Hi!" Bellona says when she sees Belmarniss emerge.

"Hi!" From the phrasebook: "I can understand, but tell me when I need to talk."

"We'll need to decide probably in the next hour what we're doing for the day - there's a supposedly shut down lab I want to investigate, though we're unsure whether the best time to do that's after dark... Emma feels we don't need to investigate and can fairly accurately guess what we'd find and don't need to put targets on our backs."

"Elaborate on that?"

Permalink

"It's about the philosopher's stone thing we discovered. If they're still making them, they have to have a facility for that, and the most convenient place is this abandoned lab - it's next to a prison, and it didn't have any good reason for being shut down." She taps the map. "There's also some other things not matching up that make me want to get a look at an actual philosopher's stone array. We don't think the notes we were decoding have one, but if they've been using the arrays recently there'll be records, or probably the actual array will still exist."

"Hmmm..."

Permalink

"Em doesn't think there's any rush, so we should be able to get you able to blend in and with somewhere to stay before we go after that - Em also thinks there's a decent chance some part of my plan's gonna blow up in our faces..."

Permalink

"Tongues.

I can turn people invisible for a few minutes."

Permalink

" - That'd be ridiculously useful, yeah, at the very least to get us in the place..."

Permalink

"Why doesn't Emma think you need to investigate?"

Permalink

"It's risky, she thinks we can get the array somewhere else without running that risk, just more slowly - though I don't really trust the person she wants to ask, either - and she doesn't think we need to confirm the government's continuing to make the stones."

"What's wrong with who she wants to ask?"
