Do voice that Cyan only seems to have/use two major tricks: flying, and summoning bedrock.

You decide to hold off on sharing your suspicions for now. You need to be certain if you're going to make such an outlandish claim. Besides, you'd rather not further jeopardize your standing here. Your stomach churns just thinking about it and that makes you all the more resentful. What's happening? This isn't how it's supposed to work. They're your vizier, they're yours. But they dare to- to even form an- an opinion, like they get to decide whether to respect you-

But you keep your external composure.

You finish recapping your journey, making sure to describe Cyan and her capacities in as great detail as you can. Then you move on to the heart of the matter- their goals. You tell the vizier that they intend to kill the gods and remake the world in the image of theirs.

There are a few seconds of silence.
Vizier: Oh.
Vizier: Well.
Vizier: They... can't? Do that?
Vizier: They won't be... able to?
Vizier: I mean, they can't.

Donnella: Well yeah obviously not. I have no idea of the particulars of their plans but we can safely expect them to fail utterly.
Donnella: Who knows what damage they'll do in the process of trying and failing, though.
Donnella: It's strange. Cyan didn't give out specifics about anything, but she seemed to think, for some reason, that I in particular could help them somehow.

Vizier: Mmmmmm.... not sure what that could mean...
Vizier: This whole business is decidedly odd. We know far too little of this spirit... and then there is the matter of these 'Cursed Ones' seemingly... stowed away with it...
Vizier: Regardless, we need to act now to control this situation.
Vizier: If that is all that you have to share, shall we move on to the matter of our response?


It was there for a fraction of a second. But when you said that, you swear you saw a flicker of emotion cross the vizier's face.

Absolute terror.

What the hell was that about? Will you let it slide for now, or press them on it?

You settle back and center yourself. As much as it pains you, you just let the moment pass without comment. You don’t want to launch vague accusations over something so small and easy to deny. You need to look into this before confronting them. If they’re hiding something from you… you mean, who’s ever heard of a treacherous vizier??? The very idea is disturbing.

Vizier: Obviously we’ll want to contact the Order of the Crystal Sea for this matter.
Vizier: The debts other houses owe you… mmm… now seems the time to call them in. As a first order of business, however-

Vizier: Oh! Forgive me.

[Image: zY7e5yT.png]
Vizier: This had better be of utmost importance. I told you not to interrupt while I...
Vizier: What?


[Image: zfokaZV.png]

Vizier: That meddling-! What business does the Four Corners have here? Of all the times… how long ago did they arrive? I… nnnng… I ought to finish up here first, can you


[Image: Kvqyptl.png]
Of course. Of course!
Four Corners! This must be their doing!
The boxes in your room, the paper with their logo- everything that happened- the book- your father-
And now they’re here. What, are you supposed to buy that it’s coincidence?

[Image: XucvlsJ.png]
This city is yours. They’re utterly at your mercy. You can have them detained right now and pull your answers from their minds. Order their arrest, finish up here, and deal with them at your leisure. No! Maybe you want to go and confront them in person, this second.
Vizier: Firstborn?
Or… no. You can’t be hasty. Should you just wait and see what they do, wait for them to tip their hand? But who knows what they could get up to if you don’t deal with them immediately…

You're sick of standing by and being... in the dark, and feeling meek. You have to do something! But what?

Ask why he was hiding a burger in his suit, that seems rather moronic.

I'm glad you brought this back, I suddenly got busy.

Didn't dad say that it was his book? And if they're in your city, are they sending their best? Clearly you must stalk them down yourself and find the sabotage they have seeded in your city.

You mean, that’s a pretty standard two-way communicator setup. They’re like, a thing Aeon Co makes. Well, other people also make them too but these ones include a few key magical innovations that set them apart from competitor products. You guess they do look kind of like tiny burgers from the right angle though, huh

wait shit you’re losing your momentum from standing up all dramatically

That’s… you think he actually did indicate that he already knew about the book at some point which… does seem to poke a hole in your theory…

…but it doesn’t matter! So maybe Four Corners didn’t plant the book, or at least didn’t do so recently. They’re here now and obviously up to something. And you’re going to go confront them about it this instant.

Vizier: Firstborn?

[Image: HUTawZk.png]
Vizier: Wha- where are you going?

Do you even slow down for this interruption?

I'm investigating. I trust that you can secure the city as well as possible on your own.

Honestly don't believe she would stop easily, but bad relations with your vizier is the kind of thing that loses countries.
