Prologue - 001

Turns since TBfGK: 2

CharlsNChrg: And none of them really have a clue what you did.

LordHamster: Do you?

CharlsNChrg: Well, I imagine it must have been a three-caster link.

CharlsNChrg: Croakamancer applied motion/matter principles through the Dirtamancer, but to animate terrain instead of bodies.

CharlsNChrg: Correct?

LordHamster: Something like that.

LordHamster: So are you clueing them in?

CharlsNChrg: Not so far, I haven't.

LordHamster: Why not?

CharlsNChrg: There's an interesting principle at work, here.

CharlsNChrg: If I tell them what happened, freely, then they won't believe it.

CharlsNChrg: But if I charge them what the information is worth, then they'll buy it.

LordHamster: In both senses.

CharlsNChrg: Indeed. :)

LordHamster: Okay, so you're selling them the intelligence.

CharlsNChrg: Actually, I kind of like being the only one who does know what happened there.

CharlsNChrg: So what I am doing is offering the information at about twice what anyone is willing to pay for it.

LordHamster: Gotta make back your losses somehow.

LordHamster: But you're telling me this for free.

CharlsNChrg: Yes.

LordHamster: Why?

CharlsNChrg: Maybe I don't want you to believe it. :)
