They're meeting under a big tree in a savannah in an unsettled area of a farmstead planet in Edda. Melda, as the newly promoted team leader, is there first, having made sure the grass is good for Andalites and the temperature good for Amentans and that the bees in that nest over there are sung sleepy, and she waits for them to be couriered in.
"Thank you very much for your time."
I've been told to talk to the tall one in white. Apparently he's a "chaplain," meaning he's in charge of talking to local spirits.
:That sounds useful. Who seems most spirit-like to speak with him?:
At a complete guess, you by virtue of not speaking aloud.
:Plausible. If I am going to speak with the chaplain, I would recommend that we split into multiple groups, so as to gather maximum information and not to overwhelm any one speaker.:
Seems reasonable enough to me. Who do you want with you, anyone?
:I doubt it will be necessary; if it is, I will alert you.:
All right. Good skill.
