She boggles at that for a second but probably Cheliax could field a million soldiers, even more, if it conscripted everyone between sixteen and thirty-five. It'd be short-sighted but they could do it.

Probably this is the part where they torture him and that's going to suck. It may actually suck more if they use weird barbarian torture methods instead of something modern like electric shocks. Oh, it's that thing where the world feels like it's ending. At least it is not distracting him from anything he was trying to do.

" - are you not supposed to talk to people with another god at all, is that what this is -"

Permalink

He is not on enough drugs to be hallucinating gods.

Permalink

"Fine. Whatever. I'm going to stick you in the men's barracks and give you Taldane in the morning and ask around about a ride back to Ibyabek for you." Though she's not actually sure that the place he's from is one she's heard of. It might be somewhere in Tian Xia.

She reaches for the stun gun.

He holsters it. He's pretty surrounded but that doesn't mean he's going to LET her.

Permalink

Well she feels that she deserves compensation for all of this trouble she's going to but she's not going to wrestle a fighter for it. "Okay. We can talk more in the morning." When she can have Charm Person prepared. "Barracks are this way."

Permalink

Fine, he will go to their "barracks". What is the POINT of all this though.

Permalink

There's someone there. 

"This guy has a very impressive weapon and is from some place I've never heard of, I assume a teleportation accident though he doesn't remember 'cause he hit his head, he's maybe not allowed to talk to followers of foreign gods, keep him out of trouble, okay?"

       "What're you - doing with him -"

"I want to figure out the weapon. And learn about Tian Xia. That's my assignment, here, learn about faraway places. And if they're not allowed to talk to followers of foreign gods we're not going to have many opportunities."

       "Sure."

She waves cheerfully at Kyeo and leaves as Tongues wears off.

Kyeo doesn't understand this conversation, of course. He looks for an unoccupied bunk.

Permalink

There are some of those.

Permalink

He sits on one.

Permalink

People look at him curiously as they come in but none of them bother him. Eventually the sun goes down. As they do not have electric lighting, it's dark when that happens, aside from a gas lantern someone has and some glowing orbs someone else has.

Permalink

He doesn't like these drugs.

He pulls the holster around so it's under him while he lies down, and sleeps.

Permalink

She comes to tap him with Share Language in the morning. She hates being in the men's barracks so she tries to tug him out, after that. "Hey, come get breakfast."

Permalink

THESE ARE SUCH WEIRD DRUGS.

He will follow her to breakfast, fully expecting it to be some kind of stupid prank where actually breakfast costs money or something.

Permalink

Breakfast does not cost money but it is not the highest quality of breakfasts because all the important people have rings of sustenance and many of the rest can Prestidigitate it tastier. There is oatmeal, and jerky.

Permalink

Wow, jerky. He will eat it if they give it to him, though he's prepared for there to be some sort of unpleasantness where they kick him in the stomach later, that's the sort of thing that probably comes up sometimes. They already obviously have some way to deliver substances so this doesn't change much.

Permalink

She casts Charm Person while his back is turned. "So," she says. "I know we scared you yesterday. The Worldwound's not the safest place but no one has it out for you in particular."

Permalink

"The Worldwound?" ...that's a question, not a statement, it's probably fine.

Permalink

"The place where you landed. Where the demons attack from."

Permalink

"That's what the dangerous animals are called, demons?"

Permalink

"Yeah. They're not all animals, some of 'em are intelligent. They're all chaotic and trying to devour everything, though."

Permalink

"This planet has intelligent alien life??"

Permalink

"...yes. Does Ibyabek not?"
