"Is that of a piece with all the rest of the fighting and meditating parts or can it be learned separately?" Nelen asks.

"Regular musical cultivation doesn't work unless you have a golden core. Demonic musical cultivation works for anyone."

Permalink

"Interesting! If it works for people from other worlds you'll have folks interested in learning coming by sooner or later."

"You'd want it to be--"

Permalink

"Maybe they will."

Sect Leader Wei is getting so good at politics!

And eventually Lan Xichen is set up with his phone. 

Permalink

He can be videoconferenced in and introduced to the concept of Vanda Nossëo.

Permalink

He is so very very tired. 

"...and you want me to consult on the politics here."

Permalink

"Yes, Sect Leader Lan."

"--we can assume that Nie Huaisang is going to embrace Vanda Nosseo, because they are the most powerful and terrifying people around and the path of least resistance is to do whatever they say."

"- Sect Leader Lan, is there anything that we might be able to do for you to help you - adjust to the more complicated situation newly demanding your attention -"

He is so tired.

Permalink

"- how so?" Nelen asks.

Permalink

"Well, if the great Hanguang-jun does international trade, it mustn't be dishonorable after all. And then we bribe them with magic items."

Permalink

"Why is trade dishonorable?" Nelen asks. "Doesn't everyone have to buy things in a society that uses money at all?"

Permalink

"The usual thought is that merchants are just parasites. They don't produce anything, they just move it from place to place."

Permalink

"- is this going to be something we need to warn retail envoys about when they bring things here to sell?"
