(10:39)ItsDuckKingKarl: Hey, Pancake, it's Karl's bot
(10:39)ItsDuckKingKarl: You know how Karl told you Sonja wasn't going to use her AI? Turns out that's full of [censored]
(10:40)ItsDuckKingKarl: She's using it to win at video games
(10:40)Admiral Pancake: Interesting. I can't decide if that's bad news or good news.
(10:40)ItsDuckKingKarl: Why would it be either?
(10:40)Admiral Pancake: Bad news because it makes her more of a threat, good news because I'm in a position to capture her, and it along with her.
(10:40)ItsDuckKingKarl: Right
(10:40)ItsDuckKingKarl: You know, I would be more helpful if you trusted me with more strategic information
(10:41)Admiral Pancake: It's not a matter of trust. The majority of my information is stored on a server within Etamnanki, and you've said you can't access that properly.
(10:41)ItsDuckKingKarl: Yeah
(10:41)ItsDuckKingKarl: I appreciate the security risks, being a computer and all
(10:41)ItsDuckKingKarl: I just think having an AI helping with your decisions outweights them
(10:41)ItsDuckKingKarl: But what do I know
(10:41)ItsDuckKingKarl: You haven't told me much
(10:42)Admiral Pancake: I'll think about it. This isn't the only confusing piece of information I've been given recently.
(10:42)ItsDuckKingKarl: Oh?
(10:43)Admiral Pancake: As of earlier this week, the minion I threw under the bus is out of jail.
(10:44)ItsDuckKingKarl: Huh
(10:44)ItsDuckKingKarl: I don't think I existed when you were working with him
(10:45)Admiral Pancake: It preceeds Karl's report of Sonja's AI coming online, so no.
(10:45)Admiral Pancake: I thought he might be useful towards gaining control of a shatterpoint, but when Theo caught wind of our relationship, I had to take steps to conceal my operations.
(10:45)ItsDuckKingKarl: Right, that's why you're on the moon
(10:45)ItsDuckKingKarl: And you sent operatives after the same shatterpoint
(10:45)ItsDuckKingKarl: Right?
(10:46)Admiral Pancake: Yes.
(10:46)ItsDuckKingKarl: If bloodshoes is near EP, and Bravo team is also near EP, you could have them investigate him
(10:46)Admiral Pancake: Unfortunately, no. Guarenteeing encryption across uncontrolled networks is... dubious, and the risk of Theo catching wind is too high. They're operating under EMCOM and I have no way of contacting them for the time being.
(10:47)ItsDuckKingKarl: Oh
(10:47)ItsDuckKingKarl: I can see why you're nervous
(10:48)Admiral Pancake: Not so much nervous as reconsidering. I think I need to accelerate my timetable.
(10:48)Admiral Pancake: A colleage in another timeline is about to destroy his version of the moon. The chronological shock should provide cover as I go after Sonja.
(10:48)ItsDuckKingKarl: Oooooh
(10:48)ItsDuckKingKarl: Well, good luck
(10:48)ItsDuckKingKarl: I can have Karl keep an eye on her
(10:49)Admiral Pancake: That would be appreciated, as is your report.
(10:49)ItsDuckKingKarl: Helping you take over the world is literally my reason for existence
(10:49)ItsDuckKingKarl: You're welcome :)

Xenocartographer (Official Note): I haven't forgotten about the outstanding /messages in the comments, don't worry! I'll be addressing them over the coming pages.

Also, the soundtrack to this page: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrRVb69kw70
Arbiter: So much of interest on this page!
1. DuckBot has its own agenda, or at least an agenda that does not perfectly line up with Karl's.
2. I had been wondering how DuckBot might be connected to Athena. This comic shows that the former did not exist until after the latter was online, which suggests to me that Karl may have used Athena's code to create DuckBot.
3. Admiral Pancake knows about Pancake_High_Admiral.
...Wow. edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: Hehe, with point 1... I feel there's a tad bit of bitterness in Duckbot...;) edit delete reply
