CharlsNChrg: About this morning, Parson... LordHamster: Yeah. About that. CharlsNChrg: Is that how it's going to be? LordHamster: For the record, I didn't order it. LordHamster: But yeah, I think it's safe to say that anything you stick in our battlespace is going to get cut off. LordHamster: So be careful what you're sticking, and where. CharlsNChrg: Fair enough. CharlsNChrg: What would it cost me for permission to pass through? LordHamster: Dunno. That would be up to Stanley. CharlsNChrg: Could you find out? LordHamster: Weeeell, I'll ask heem, but I don't theenk he'll be verrah keen. CharlsNChrg: Please do. CharlsNChrg: So, um... LordHamster: Yes? CharlsNChrg: Couldn't help notice a small detail about that battle. LordHamster: I bet you couldn't. CharlsNChrg: That was Patty, Maxene and LaVerne. LordHamster: If you say so. CharlsNChrg: What were they doing in that black raiment, fighting for Gobwin Knob? LordHamster: If you read that question again, Charlie, you'll notice that it answers itself. CharlsNChrg: Cute. CharlsNChrg: You know what I mean. LordHamster: I do. That's also the only answer you're getting. LordHamster: The only free answer, anyway. CharlsNChrg: You're a quick study. CharlsNChrg: What will it cost me? LordHamster: So I've been told. And how bout letting me out of the rest of that Mathamancy deal? CharlsNChrg: Steep. LordHamster: Maybe not. It's a pretty valuable chunk of info. CharlsNChrg: Undoubtedly. CharlsNChrg: Tell you what, I'll spend a calculation now. CharlsNChrg: Tell me the odds that learning what happened to my Archons right now will be worth giving up those calculations in the future. LordHamster: ... LordHamster: I don't know if this thing can even DO a calculation like that. Predicting the future? CharlsNChrg: Try it. LordHamster: Fine. LordHamster: I'll be damned. LordHamster: It says there's all of a 4% chance it's worth taking my deal, even after spending this calculation. LordHamster: 4.14 percent. CharlsNChrg: Hm. CharlsNChrg: That either means that I could likely find out the information through other means, or the calculations will be highly valuable. LordHamster: I guess. Or both. LordHamster: Deal or No Deal? CharlsNChrg: No deal. LordHamster: Figured. Enjoy wondering. CharlsNChrg: That was clever, though, right? LordHamster: Sure. LordHamster: Determining the decision not to spend all the calculations. Cost: one calculation. CharlsNChrg: :) LordHamster: Teaching me that my bracer can make sophisticated predictions about the future? Priceless. CharlsNChrg: ... CharlsNChrg: :(
