"What kind of resource?"

"If I knew the answer to that specifically then I would be more sure than I am that that was it." 

Permalink

"They won't tell you?"

Permalink

"They...don't generally give straight answers to questions at all, and I am not yet skilled enough at asking questions that will give me the information I want to draw too many conclusions about the fact that they haven't told me." 

Permalink

"...troubling."

Permalink

"I know they're, like, not as value aligned with me as I'd like, but most people aren't, and they're pretty old and weird? Most people would do worse with the amount of power they have, I wouldn't call myself a huge fan obviously but they did fix my Outsider influence which is a pretty good first step."

"Yeah, they seem... fine? But kind of in a moral triage 'walking wounded' sense."

Permalink

"The thing is that with moral triage you don't just have to consider how badly they're doing, but what kinds of levers they're sitting on. I think they're an excellent prospect for a redemption arc, if I can swing it. That's a more long-term plan, though, I like to have lots of irons in the fire."

"It is one of your neat qualities. Speaking of your qualities and them being neat are chats like this a routine thing or just a one-time awakening deal?"

Permalink

"They're not a one-time Awakening deal, if you'd rather leave and do some research before finalizing things and Awakening. My attention is much greater than a human's but not actually infinite so I don't answer every prayer I receive like this but a) Anything related to the honeytrap is going to be very high-priority for the next while, b) you're already friends with my doppelganger, which makes us transitively socially linked, c) I like your fate shadow, and d) I already know you're not going to be weird about face time with a deity." 

Permalink

"I don't feel a need to go research things before finalizing, no, since I have some points saved up for later."

Permalink

"There are things you can't change after Awakening, though, so it's better to be aware of the option. Admittedly less so when your class and race aren't a free variable."

Permalink

"Am I locking in anything you think I may regret?"

Permalink

"No, but I know lots of things you don't, and if you wanted to do research from sources that weren't me then that would be perfectly reasonable."

Permalink

"I think I'm good. I did poke around witch books for a while already."

Permalink

"Oh, good. --It's not that I expect mistrust, per se, I'd just rather err on the side of not making the obvious god mistakes." 

Permalink

"I appreciate that."
