SALV Chesswick, realize that SALV Relda Fauxfox has her medal pinned to the wrong side of her chest (which is unsurprising for a Lengra-Cha hick) and smells rather strongly of skunk (which is unusual even for a Lengra-Cha hick). Interrogate the new vixen further.
Relda, do your best to keep ahead of the questions. Do well, until Sophie gets involved. Then lose the interrogation, badly. Be taken to the embassy for further questioning. Maybe you should try pulling a Bavarian fire drill instead of playing on the "shy new girl from the boondocks" card.

Boo-Boo's truth sense, refuse to be quiet. Also, unlike what Yolanda thought, actually mean the medal and monocle to be fake.
Yolanda, start believing that your son is hitting early puberty.

Vulpitanian embassy, be heavily decorated for saint Reynard's day, which is a Vulpitanian national holiday (that nobody can agree on what day it is supposed to be held, so it can be held on any day, as long as it's only once per year - or the people celebrating it don't get caught more than once per year), where it's traditionally expected to lock a bunch of people in a building together over night and have them play practical jokes on one another.
Relda, realize that this might be a perfect cover to steal the part needed and get some intel. Until you realize that you will have to stay the whole night among the foxes.

SALV Relda Fauxfox > explain the skunk smell due to having a liaison with the kings hand Adler over the... er... the vulpitanian contractual trade agreement renewal! Cant loose our supply of medal polish!

SALV Relda Fauxfox > Be curious that the young silverbrush can see through your disguise. Maybe his true sight could be of use to you later

Sgt. Avogadro & Marshal T > Muse over what adler is involed in. Be alarmed what the thaumaturist are planning for the king, the scuti "maybe" being royal blood, a possibility F.E.L.F. are backed by the vulpitanian state and a possible all out war with vulpitania if alder is caught!

"SALV Fauxfox, your medal is pinned to der wronk side," Ambassador Chesswick pointed out suspiciously.

"It's on the right side," I retorted, with absolute truth.

"FAKE," Boris yelled again, followed by a yelp as Yolanda pinched his ear.

"Vhy do you schmell zo schtrongly of schkunk?" Alberta asked, sniffing.

"I've had very close personal contact with Prince Adler," I hedged.

"Ach, he has der impressive Viles, does he not?" the Ambassador sighed. The young vixen at her side groaned disgustedly and wrinkled her nose.

"He certainly does," I replied.

"Und vhat exactly vere you doink in zere, zat led you to vhat schmells like ein VERY intimate conference mit der Prince und Right Handt?"

[Image: 1026sass_zpsnf0f8mrs.gif]

"Don't interrogate me, SALV Chesswick!" I snapped imperiously. "My mission, which I am on for Important Reasons, is my own, not yours."

"Okay, okay, fine," the Ambassador shrugged. "Headqvarters likes to keep its zecrets. Zo be it. Take ein chill pill, SALV, I vill not pry into der matter any furzer."

"See that you remember that," I sniffed.

The little vixen glowered at me sullenly but said nothing.

Quote:SALV Relda Fauxfox > Elf mind estvan ask him to keep a eye on the thaumaturgists and quickly give him the gist of whats going on
>Estvan: Fully realize that it's Adler, enjoy the sight nevertheless. Tag along just in case something funny happens, and to his growing discomfort.
>To the Embassy or the Thaumaturgy Den? Such a weighty decision cannot be made lightly.

"Estvan," I thought with Elfmind. "It's me, Adler. I have transmogrified myself into this vixen so as to stay incognito."

"Sure, and a fine job of it you've done too, me boyo," he replied, inspecting my disguise appreciatively.

"My eyes are up here, Estvan," I reminded him. "There are two things I need to do, and I don't have much time to do them. I've got to get into the Vulpitanian Embassy and fetch some spare parts for Alice Chetsweeks' mechanical body. I also have to go to the apartment where Rotnev Nidab and Nexivydah Semos are conducting their experiments, and stop them from completing their work. Can you help?"

"It's forbidden I am from the Embassy, by a restraining order," Estvan explained. "But sure and I wouldn't mind stoppin' in to visit Rotnev and Nexy at all, at all."

Quote:>Adler: Off to the Embassy with you!
SALV Relda Fauxfox> Goto Embassy, go quickly, go straight
Vulpitanian embassy, be heavily decorated for saint Reynard's day, which is a Vulpitanian national holiday

"SALV Chesswick," I said, turning to the Ambassador. "If you are going to the Embassy, I shall accompany you."

[Image: 1026happyday_zpso9hl2pcg.gif]

After a short walk, we entered the Vulpitanian Embassy, where we were greeted by a trio of foxes armed with pies and a seltzer bottle.

"HAPPY SAINT REYNARD'S DAY!" they yelled in unison.

Embassy receptionist, look eerily familiar.

SALV Chesswick and SALV Silverbrush, react to the holiday with a mixture of reverence and pure dread.

Pies, be rhubarb flavoured. Relda, enjoy the taste, but not the delivery.

Relda, try to gather some information on the holiday. Succeed, but also draw some attention to yourself. Also learn a few interesting facts about the Vulpitanians in the process.

An actual Lengra-Cha native, be present in the embassy. Try to get some alone time with your fellow contryvixen.

Boo-Boo, be very bitter about the way your mother is treating you every time you just want to help. Decide to rebel against her at every opportunity.

Estvan, before going to the experts, go check on Meadow first. See if she has acquired any useful information.

Spoiler :
There's a wiki now? Nice. I'm tempted to go read the Winterbough saga now... I copied one of the stories to my Kindle a while back, but just hadn't gone around to reading it yet...

Before I could react, I suddenly had a face full of rhubarb cream. I heard some snickering and a muffled "nyuck nyuck nyuck" as I pried the pie pans away and scooped pie filling out of my eyes.

"A 1,000 pardons, SALV!" the tod with the seltzer bottle exclaimed apologetically. "We were totes aiming 4 teh other 2 vixens, I cant even understand Y they both hit U, Xcept maybe UR new & teh new girl always gets teh pie in teh face. Hear, let me help U get cleaned up, LOL."

He sprayed me with a generous amount of seltzer.

"Hey. New SALV," the receptionist muttered, after the seltzer fox went "nyuck"ing down the corridor. "The Marshal is ready for you. Take this pass and go on up."

I took the slip of paper she held out to me. "Do I know you?" I asked. "You look strangely familiar."

"I doubt it," she sighed. "The Marshal does not like to be kept waiting."

I stepped through the double doors on the other side of the room, and looked around. The stairs that used to be here were not here ... then I remembered that the old Embassy had exploded when I was there on that First Day of Winter so many years ago, and this was therefore a new building.

I wandered down a hallway and turned left at an intersection. After going through two empty anterooms and a small meeting hall, I was lost. The entire Embassy seemed deserted. All the foxes must have been off celebrating Saint Reynard's day somewhere. I stumbled past a set of unoccupied carrels and rounded a corner to come face-to-face with an elaborate carved shrine.

"BLESSINGS OF SAINT REYNARD," the plaque at the bottom stated. "SMELL MY FLOWER FOR LUCK."

[Image: 1101squirt_zpsmgxp8gl2.gif]

I leaned in for a closer look at the carved flower on the icon's lapel, and it squirted me.

Quote:An actual Lengra-Cha native, be present in the embassy. Try to get some alone time with your fellow contryvixen.

"Believe you fell for that, I cannot," a raspy voice murmured behind me.

[Image: 1101sandmonk_zpshxuefdy6.gif]

I turned to behold a short, stocky, sand-colored fox in a brown robe. He gazed at me with an enigmatic yet baleful expression.

"Back in Lengra-Cha, how are things?" he asked.

Speculation: The "monk's" name is "Adoy" or something similar.
Robed fox, be completely serious and have no intention to perform any kind of trickery on the vixen. Try to get an honest conversation out of her.

Relda, believe that the robed fox is going to trick you at every opportunity and act accordingly.

Flower fluid, do not be just water. Relda, start feeling very ecstatic and giggly all of a sudden. Get an urge to break out in a song and dance.

SALV Silverbrush, secretly follow Relda around. Try to get as many pranks as possible to affect her. Have a hard time accomplishing this due to Relda's boon of luck.

SALV Chesswick, go get a fresh uniform. Do not realize that it's been tampered with until it's too late.
