SS: Oh well excuse me. Perhaps I should’ve used ally or associate maybe contact, you know something indicating that relationship is good? Because That’s what I was insinuating, and now you learned something too. SS: We have a deal.

AC: } Most words lik€ that ar€ taint€d with l€ss-than-flat€ring m€anings a lot of th€ tim€. I’m glad I didn’t g€t into linguistics or I’d b€ up to my gills in d€ciph€ring m€anings and oth€r associat€d bullshit. {

AC: } But that’s b€sid€ th€ point {

AC: } €xc€ll€nt! Wh€n should I €xp€ct a bit of info coming my way? {

arbitraryfantrolls replied to your post: arbitraryfantrolls replied to your post:…

SS: That’s great of you to assume things about me like that. Really great by the way. Is that how you make friends? SS:Whatever, I’ll get the information you look at it and you pay me? SS: It’s not like I really need a lot of money.

AC: } You should know by now that “fri€nd” and “€n€my” m€an th€ sam€ thing. If not, now is a gr€at tim€ to l€arn. {

AC: } It’s a l€arning €xp€ri€nc€ for all today! {

AC: } But what€v€r. Thos€ conditions sound acc€ptabl€. {

AC: } W€’ll sp€ak paym€nt lat€r. {

arbitraryfantrolls replied to your post: arbitraryfantrolls replied to your post: So you…

SS: So that’s how it is? Hmm. Alright then, I’ll work on getting the information. SS: I’ll tell you if the Info is worth anything. SS: How about that?

AC: } W€ll… {

AC: } I’m not sur€ if your judgm€nt is trustworthy. Lik€, this do€sn’t hav€ any €ff€ct on your lif€ dir€ctly so you could just li€ about it to g€t sw€t loot. {

AC: } “OH SUR€ TH€Y W€R€ L€ADING COMMAND€R FOR TH€ ROYAL FL€T, DISCHARG€D VIA D€ATH FOR CONSPIRING AGAINST TH€ €MPIR€ IN A STANDOFF WORTHY OF TH MOVI€S. THAT’LL B€ 4K CA€GARS.” {

AC: } At l€ast, that’s what most upstanding trolls in your position would do. {

AC: } I’v€ got no r€ason to trust you, and a possibly h€fty pric€ looming in th distanc€ to not trust you. {

AC: } But, just hint at it if it’s worth knowing or not. {

AC: } Just a smidg€. {

AC: } A t€ny hint. {

arbitraryfantrolls replied to your post: So you are the troll looking for some ancestral answers? A little purple blood told me so. Might as well cut to the chase, I’m Athens, that’s all you need to know. I’m an archivist for the empire. I can get you just about anything, for the right price.

Now now, just because I said price, doesn’t mean monetary value. I like the clients to name their price first. In exchange for recovering some files what do you think is equal to the value of the information?

AC: } Th€ pric€ I would nam€ d€p€nds on wh€th€r or not th€ information is worth anything. {

AC: } If th€y turn out to b€ a giant los€r, I’d “gain” th knowl€dg€ that my anc€stor wasn’t worth knowing about, and I’d los€ what€v€r I would hav€ agr€d to pay you. {

AC: } I s€ns€ this will conc€d€ to a vicious cycl€ of us trying to nam€ and d€t€rmin€ valu€s ov€r info on som€ long d€ad troll. {

AC: } Woah th€r€, “pric€”? {

AC: } Do I h€ar €chos in th€ vast €xpansion of th€ Alt€rnian wast€lands “pric€”? {

AC: } I think I did. {

AC: } Th€ g€ntl€ murmurs of th€ word “pric€” waft through th€ s€a air, violating my auricular spong€ clots with th€ir grating ton€s. {

AC: } Nam€ your bottom pric€, and if I can stand to witn€ss it without wanting to throw you or mys€lf onto a rocky spir€, th€n w€’ll talk anc€stors. {

AC: } I don’t r€ally want to b€ a both€r, or to r€ally r€ly on som€on€ €ls€ at all! {

arbitraryfantrolls sent: (not sure if it went through, gonna ask again) AA: Mel: you would figure with all these sea trolls around me, I figured one of them knew something! I'd be happy to recommend you to him, if knowledge is what you seek.

AC: } I wouldn’t want to grov€l at th€ f€€t of anoth€r s€adw€ll€r for th€m to l€t m€ in on a littl€ info. {

AC: } But I don’t know how sociabl€ th€y ar€. Th€y could inform m€ with no qualms or th€y could ask a strif€ in €xchang€ with a sliv€r of a chanc€ at it. {
