Turns since TBfGK: 20

CharlsNChrg: About this morning, Parson...

LordHamster: Yeah. About that.

CharlsNChrg: Is that how it's going to be?

LordHamster: For the record, I didn't order it.

LordHamster: But yeah, I think it's safe to say that anything you stick in our battlespace is going to get cut off.

LordHamster: So be careful what you're sticking, and where.

CharlsNChrg: Fair enough.

CharlsNChrg: What would it cost me for permission to pass through?

LordHamster: Dunno. That would be up to Stanley.

CharlsNChrg: Could you find out?

LordHamster: Weeeell, I'll ask heem, but I don't theenk he'll be verrah keen.[1]

CharlsNChrg: Please do.

CharlsNChrg: So, um...

LordHamster: Yes?

CharlsNChrg: Couldn't help notice a small detail about that battle.

LordHamster:: I bet you couldn't.

CharlsNChrg: That was Patty, Maxene and LaVerne.

LordHamster: If you say so.

CharlsNChrg: What were they doing in that black raiment, fighting for Gobwin Knob?

LordHamster: If you read that question again, Charlie, you'll notice that it answers itself.

CharlsNChrg: Cute.

CharlsNChrg: You know what I mean.

LordHamster: I do. That's also the only answer you're getting.

LordHamster: The only free answer, anyway.

CharlsNChrg: You're a quick study.

CharlsNChrg: What will it cost me?

LordHamster: So I've been told. And how bout letting me out of the rest of that Mathamancy deal?

CharlsNChrg: Steep.

LordHamster: Maybe not. It's a pretty valuable chunk of info.

CharlsNChrg: Undoubtedly.

CharlsNChrg: Tell you what, I'll spend a calculation now.

CharlsNChrg: Tell me the odds that learning what happened to my Archons right now will be worth giving up those calculations in the future.

LordHamster: ...

LordHamster: I don't know if this thing can even DO a calculation like that. Predicting the future?

CharlsNChrg: Try it.

LordHamster: Fine.

LordHamster: I'll be damned.

LordHamster: It says there's all of a 4% chance it's worth taking my deal, even after spending this calculation.

LordHamster: 4.14 percent.

CharlsNChrg: Hm.

CharlsNChrg: That either means that I could likely find out the information through other means, or the calculations will be highly valuable.

LordHamster: I guess. Or both.

LordHamster: Deal or No Deal?[2]

CharlsNChrg: No deal.

LordHamster: Figured. Enjoy wondering.

CharlsNChrg: That was clever, though, right?

LordHamster: Sure.

LordHamster: Determining the decision not to spend all the calculations. Cost: one calculation.

CharlsNChrg: :)

LordHamster: Teaching me that my bracer can make sophisticated predictions about the future? Priceless.[3]

CharlsNChrg: ...

CharlsNChrg: :(
