RE: Four.
Off to a good start, we all actually agree on something.

Blue is a nice color.
Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

You created the Council's Favour!
Your conflicting intentions produce an item from both designs.
[Image: badge_unfilled.gif?raw=true]


COUNCIL'S FAVOUR (Equipment)
This colorful badge unseals areas normally unavailable to visitors.
By filling the pips with CORES, one can add to or alter its functions.
Perhaps other things can fit in the pips, too...?


[Image: badge_get.png?raw=true]

The Council's Favour shimmers into existence in front of Aubrey. She immediately adds it to her Inventory.

AUBREY
"I can't... no, I can believe that worked."
"I'm just surprised that I didn't think of it 10
years ago!"

AUBREY
"Thank you, Council. I have a feeling I'm going to need this."

Aubrey's quiet for a second. Then:

AUBREY
"Unless there's anything pressing you want to say, I think we should go."
"I don't want to be here any longer than I have to—no offense."

Hopefully we can learn a bit more about, well. whatever is on the other side of the door.

Oh, perhaps you can explain to us how this works on the way there, to wherever that door leads? Goodness, what a strange place.

Could you talk to us mentally, so you would not disturb the ones around you? Or do you think we can create a small communication device?

If we could, I would suggest a flip phone!! They're quite fun to play with.

Aubrey takes stock of her surroundings.
She has no idea where she is, nor why the world crackles with static, but it bothers her.
It bothers her immensely.
