(09:25)__RSPTN__: No. I assisted one of them in interdicting a maneuver on Pancake's part and was sent a cake. (09:25)__RSPTN__: Did you just wake up? It's been all over the newsnets. (09:29)__RSPTN__: I wasn't briefed on that part of the plan. (09:34)__RSPTN__: Eugene Panak's presence as a mundane threat has been crippled, while he still retains his nonlocal capabilities. In his place, we have whatever the hell happened on the Griddle. (09:34)__RSPTN__: The following weeks will surely be... chaotic. We could benefit greatly if we can direct it. (09:35)__RSPTN__: But we still have a problem. Gaia has begun to test my shatterpoint. (09:37)__RSPTN__: It's exactly as the wiki foretold. My agents within Orlov's security forces have reported orders to exterminate Gaians on sight. (09:38)__RSPTN__: They'll turn some of the faithful. With spies of their own, I won't last long. (09:39)Unum_Relicuum: This couldn't have happened at a worse time. If we're to come out ahead over Pancake's defeat, I need my best commander alive! (09:39)__RSPTN__: Please, don't flatter me. I'm nothing special on the military front. (09:40)Unum_Relicuum: But you see possibilities no one else does. Your faith has given you exceptional insights. And you have taken your foretold demise with true conviction. (09:40)Unum_Relicuum: As for why Gaia would choose this moment, I am at a loss. What is It trying to tell us? (09:41)__RSPTN__: Perhaps this is our test - when our universe stands before judgment and is found worthy. If so, I have an idea. (09:44)__RSPTN__: We know, from the wiki, that the shatterpoint of my death is to happen shortly after my capture, and that I am captured roughly two months after Orlov's round-ups start. Therefore, I should enjoy some measure of protection until mid-December. You think that I am particularly important to Gaia; therefore, It should be particularly willing to intervene throughout that time. (09:45)__RSPTN__: How would you like a cosmically lucky double agent within Orlov's command staff? (09:48)Unum_Relicuum: Exceptional insights indeed. Oh, bravo, Ashley! Truly, Gaia speaks to you as a parent to Its child. (09:49)Unum_Relicuum: We'll have to confer with the other commanders on how to best implement your plan, but I see the potential. And I'm sure they will as well. (09:49)Unum_Relicuum: The timing permits nothing else but that this is the will of Gaia.
