/message MrE I am a member of the Council, which has an interest, among other things, in helping your daughter. Despite our occasional grandiose declarations, we have some rather major holes in our understanding. Would you be able to fill in a couple for me, please?

System: Incoming private message from user MrE:

(18:23)MrE: Am I the go-to guy for mysterious Etamnanki interlopers? :)


(18:23)System: User MrE is initiating a private chat.

=========================================================================

/message reply Maybe. Have you heard anything from Delta?

(18:24)FallenLeaves: Woops, there you are.

(18:25)MrE: Delta? It doesn't ring a bell.

(18:25)FallenLeaves: Also known as Padlock?

(18:26)MrE: Hmm... Still nothing.

(18:27)FallenLeaves: Alright. Delta is this an even more mysterious Etamnanki interloper.

(18:27)MrE: Now isn't that alarming...

(18:28)FallenLeaves: Yes, but I think I have a more immediate concern. Unless Delta's behind it? Aaaaahhhh!

(18:28)MrE: Take a moment if you need to.

(18:29)FallenLeaves: Yeah.

(18:29)FallenLeaves: I've come into some information that Australia might be devastated in the near future, and want to see what I can do to minimise loss of life. Who would I need to contact to get something done about that?

(18:30)MrE: Devestated how?

(18:31)FallenLeaves: Gaians are going to nuke it. Rasputin might be there.

(18:32)MrE: Why?

(18:32)FallenLeaves: Pancake's trying to set up a timeline merge.

(18:33)MrE: By blowing up a continent?

(18:33)FallenLeaves: Apparently?

(18:34)MrE: So... there's another timeline in which Australia's been destroyed in the same way.

(18:34)MrE: This is truly alarming. What proof do you have?

(18:35)FallenLeaves: Uh... Xeno said so.

(18:35)FallenLeaves: So, not much.

(18:36)MrE: I'm afraid that doesn't count for much to anyone who doesn't side with her.

(18:36)FallenLeaves: Arbiter believes it too.

(18:38)MrE: I'm afraid that doesn't count for much, either. Arbiter's faction has largely been written off as a joke.

(18:39)FallenLeaves: Wait, what? Written off by who?

(18:40)MrE: Oh dear, this is complicated. The Etamnanki unit was never disbanded; did you know that?

(18:41)FallenLeaves: I guess I'd never given it much thought.

(18:42)MrE: Mhm. Well, after the war, the public was informed it had been "shut down". In reality, it was merely... transferred.

(18:42)MrE: The unit is now commanded by General Labuchere, hero of the India campaign. You might know her as Ambidex.

Xenocartographer (Official Note): FallenLeaves, the next part of your PM will be resolved on Wednesday! Don't worry!
Arbiter: So that’s who Ambidex is!

/message Ambidex Um, ex-fucking-scuse you. My faction is not a joke. What, you can’t get taken seriously in this game without a triple-digit body count and a secrecy fetish?
/message Ambidex “I’m so mysterious and my goals are so nebulous and spooky! I’m so cool and morally grey! Oh, look at me! Except you can’t because you don’t know anything about me, because I’m so M~Y~S~T~E~R~I~O~U~S.”
/message Ambidex “So you find me? But who am I???” Are you sure you’ve got enough question marks there???????? I’m not sure I’m intrigued enough yet????????
/message Ambidex You seem to think you can solve this problem better than we can, you and your little team of wiretapping war criminals. But tell me, what have you actually come up with? At least we’re doing something. The shatter point exploitation thing? Our idea.
/message Ambidex Or are you yet another edgelord who wants everyone to die? You threw away plenty of lives during the Gaian War, what’s a few billion more?
/message Ambidex Want to actually help the good guys? Or do you just want to keep reading people’s cybersex logs in the basement of some naval base somewhere?
/message Ambidex And if you’re going to steal my username and just shuffle some consonants around, at least get your own text colour. edit delete reply
Turquoise: Timeline-wise I'm pretty sure she came first?
You'd be the one shuffling. edit delete reply
Arbiter: Retroactive stealing is even worse. edit delete reply
Bon Ton John: What the heck are you doing, you complete nutter? edit delete reply
Arbiter: Welcome, newcomer! edit delete reply
SansTheComic: lol, probably actually this. edit delete reply
SansTheComic: so... ambidex-trous? edit delete reply
SansTheComic: still working on the time travel thingy. bear with me, this is gonna be long. edit delete reply
SansTheComic: also, just fyi, this is the General mentioned on the future wiki. edit delete reply
SansTheComic: it is done. i'm going to sleep. hopefully there isn't anything that completely invalidates everything on here. edit delete reply
