"100 people can stay here. If they share house-rooms, is that enough?"

Permalink

"We have more people than that. But for people that breath water would be enough."

Permalink

"Why is your world- how soon?"

Permalink

"Our gods want death. For themselves. Everyone dying was okay for them. World is most night all time. Some turned to monsters. We are try to find new world, but not easy."

Permalink

Nod.

"We will find solution. Water breathe people can come here. Merves says also air breathe and one more people? Merves bad at speaking your language."

Permalink

Areus answers the promise for a solution with a sincere, but not very hopeful smile. "We have nine kinds of people. Dragon and Sea Serpent people always breathe water and air. Faen maybe breathe water. Spirit not need breathe one or two ways, but need less help. Most refugees to City of Glass more maybe- more likely, be Faen or part something breathe water, like me."

Permalink

Nod.

"Dragon, Sea Serpent, Faen can live outside City of Glass? Others can live inside the dome. Some refugees at first, then more. Who is...should be first?"

Permalink

"The hybrids, part-human, part-faen, maybe part other if they breathe water. Most families, I think? People with move the city maybe stay. Maybe stay for only move the city time. We want try other worlds. Have many places if one is failure, others is success for live."

Permalink

Nod.

"Other planes we know! Maybe refugees live in those planes. Outer Planes good for live if you like- alignment. They call thing alignment, all of many things alignment, but is different than alignment here. Alignment here is easy understand. Alignment there is difficult. If you no like alignment, live in Air, maybe. Plane of Air is safe for most people."

"That is good. Maybe we try Outer Planes if some people want to. How is Air plane? Good place to fly?"

Permalink

"Good place to fly, good place to form cities and climb mountains. Air is good for lots of things. It is most like a," he says something Areus does not understand. "Then refugees can live there, because it is like their place."

Permalink

"Translate that word?" he repeats it "And Air Plane sounds more... wanted for most people. Most people not breathe water, and some people fly."

Permalink

"That word is...word for the world you are from. World that has- things and- hmph. You do not understand 'belief'. 'Belief' is...how you think world is, how you think I am, how you think world should be, that is 'beliefs'. If world is how you think, that is 'fact'. If I am how you think I am, that is 'fact'. Dome is up, that is fact. Dome is cold to touch, that is belief because I no know if dome is cold to touch. If you no know fact, that is belief. Understand? Belief is maybe yes maybe no, but if you believe, you think belief is yes."

Wow. Temperance will find this place fascinating, while several philosophers tear their hair out of their heads trying to figure out how it can work like that. Areus probably didn't understand things right, and maybe he should not. "We can move refugees there too?" He asks.

Permalink

"Maybe. I cannot say, I am not Air. If you can give them good things and if enough Good people want to help you, then yes."

Permalink

"Is a good trade to try." Areus says with a shrug. "More options should not hurt. Do you know more other options?"

Permalink

Besides the Outer Planes (which he wants to re-iterate, rely on belief and not physical matter, which is scary and stupid), some of which are hospitable to most species, and the plane of Air, there are also some Prime worlds (the word which he used to refer to Areus' homeworld) that might accept refugees.

Permalink

The Outer planes do sound like something that require more careful planning than normal, yes. Areus is mostly being thorough because they hardly suffered from an excess of options. At the moment it sounds like they will try settlements here, Air, and Prime.

Permalink

At minimum, yes.

Gulun attempts to convey that these planes are believed to be infinite but this is difficult to convey, so he settles for conveying really, really big.

Permalink

Yeah, but infinite and really, really big both work for their purposes.

Permalink

Gulun is also interested in hearing about what Areus' people trade, amongst themselves. Trade appears to be an interest of his, and he wants to hear as much as Areus is willing to share.

Permalink

Areus can supply trading information: probably not that different from what prime people trade, more focus on foods and manufactured goods.

Permalink

And after all the boring talking is out of the way, his sparring friend would like to spar with him again.

Permalink

Areus is always up for a good sparring!

Permalink

This time they can try slings. It's an interesting challenge, firing ranged projectiles in such unusual gravity. Even more complicated that when they used hammers and horseshoes.
