CharlsNChrg: People are talking.

LordHamster: Are they?

CharlsNChrg: They are talking about talking. About the talking you're doing.

LordHamster: Me? I'm not talking to anybody.

LordHamster: I'm not even sure we're talking right now.

LordHamster: What are you talking about?

CharlsNChrg: I'm talking about the talking your Prince Ansom has been doing.

LordHamster: Um, it's just "Ansom" now. He's pretty touchy about that.

CharlsNChrg: Yes...

CharlsNChrg: Anyway he's been talking. As in, not fighting. That's very interesting.

LordHamster: You know what's interesting? Twolls can make parchment.

LordHamster: And if you tell them to make it really, really thin, you have a pretty decent Kleenex.

CharlsNChrg: If I understand correctly, you haven't taken a city in more than ten turns.

LordHamster: Not to mention toilet paper. I'm so HAPPY! XD

LordHamster: Yeah we haven't lost one, either.

CharlsNChrg: What I am saying is, your Chief Warlord Ansom has ceased to conquer, and has been looking for allies.

CharlsNChrg: It seems he is trying to drive a wedge in the Coalition.

LordHamster: That would be smart, but no.

CharlsNChrg: No?

LordHamster: I mean yeah we're up against the diminishing Shmuckers point, so it's a good time to pause and do diplomacy. But Ansom's not about that.

LordHamster: He's trying to convert the entire Coalition to ...Toolism or whatever you'd call it.

CharlsNChrg: Ah. I see.

CharlsNChrg: Even after Unaroyal?

LordHamster: Yup.

LordHamster: Can't let something like that stop the Good News, brother!

LordHamster: You should be happy, though. Right? You're a Tool.

CharlsNChrg: I'm nobody's tool, Parson.

LordHamster: Oh? Not even the Titans?

CharlsNChrg: ...

CharlsNChrg: We'll see.

LordHamster: So you really don't buy into this big idea that attuning is a "new Titanic mandate?" Even though you're attuned.

LordHamster: That is interesting, Charlie. Almost more interesting than toilet paper.

LordHamster: Though my ass would disagree.

LordHamster: Stanley and Wanda seem to have this feeling that they're doing the Titans' will. But you don't think you are?

CharlsNChrg: It's possible. I suppose.

LordHamster: Me? I'm just talking.
