Griffie would now like to discuss with Vaal how to translate a comedy act about someone who bought a book of maps, then found it was bad and demanded a refund. Ey's not the best storyteller, but the gist of it is as follows: an animal stepped on the first map but the seller blames it on monster tracks, the second map is unreadably smeared but the seller claims it's of a chaotic place, the third map is just a rag with beer stains but the seller claims it's a map of a tablecloth from the beer hall of the gods, and the fourth map is Rito Village, at which point the seller concedes that it's an obviously bad map and the buyer can get a refund.

Vaal tries his best. His best includes a digression into refund policies.

This is a fun way to get more vocabulary before they go back to arguing. Griffie can also discuss refund policies, ey does … medical services ey won't specify … and when a patient was untreatable charged a client nothing even though ey spent resources on diagnosis.

"Well, that's good of you... When you can't fix it, do you do anything else or not really?"

Permalink

"Anything else?"

Permalink

"Give them painkillers or kill them, things like that."

Permalink

"My friend does painkillers for healing-by-cutting. If a person were to die with pain I may send them to someone else for good poison for dying without pain? I do not like to kill and I sell healing at a place with many many people. So if they want help to die there are other people."

Vaal nods. "Things aren't... centralized here. People have problems unexpectedly on the road, there's not a big city with a big hospital with all the sick people in it. - A hospital is a place where sick people go to have someone else bring them food and help them stay clean. There used to be one in Castle Town."

Permalink

"Do people here know magic to make people not sick or not injured?"

Permalink

"Yeah but I'm getting the impression it isn't the same as yours."

Permalink

"If you do not say what the magic is now, I think someone in Rito Village says later. Do you want to say now? I do not want to say mine but there is no person who will say later, I think."

Permalink

"If you did say what yours was, maybe you could sell it. - Ours is one of the things some foods can do if you cook them right. There's a couple kinds of fish and a mushroom. And, well. You can also do it as an elixir."

Permalink

"Do these heal sickness-that-spreads?"

Permalink

"Not really. They mostly heal injuries you don't have yet."

Permalink

"Do the Yiga or Ganon or people who work for Ganon use sickness-that-spreads to hurt people? Or Hylia. Or others."

Permalink

"Supposedly Hylia invented that."

Permalink

"I listen."

Permalink

"I don't have very much scripture memorized or anything. But she created the world. In theory it could've been Ganon or something, but it hasn't gotten worse since Ganon's been unsealed and doesn't come back with the blood moon. Actually there's less of it now that Hylia is distracted. Which could just be because it doesn't spread as much now. But, you know, it's all pretty consistent with the claims passed down through the generations."

Permalink

"In Suaal, a god Winlas says 'all the world started as a book in my books place' and Torag says 'I made the world with my … metal-making-tools'. Winlas and Torag do not like sickness. And many gods I know say they made the world."

Permalink

"So you have a lot of gods who are liars? Liars are people who say things that aren't true a lot."

Permalink

"Yes. But Torag and Winlas do not lie, they…" Griffie trails off frustratedly and does a handwave motion. "I may explain later?"

Permalink

Shrug. "I'll be curious when you have enough words." He points out some things in the distance. That over there is a wolf, and that grass is actually wheat...

Permalink

What powers does wheat give people who eat it?

Permalink

"It doesn't and actually some people get sick from it. It's... mostly used structurally, I guess, it changes textures and it's important in things like bread and cake - I'm sure we can find some of one of those to show you later - anyway some of those call for ingredients that do give people powers. Like you can use it to make your fried bananas crispier."
