[Here is Karakael, sitting in a strange, darkly lit room with pulsing walls. He is surrounded by an animated group of people, all arguing and shouting, while he himself remains quietly listening.

If anything, he looks rather bored.]


Gentlemen, I am merely here to facilitate your people's return to the surface. I am not here to debate philosophy, and I am not qualified to touch on theology.

But you wear the sign of the Inquest! You know it must exist, how could you ask us to leave our sacred duty when one of them could return and free us from this penance?

[That gets a...look which luckily is only caught by the camera.]

Every hundred years your society has to rebuild itself from scratch. What ever task your mythical "Inquest" required of you can no longer be performed. Please. Let the sea-riders help -

But surely you do not put any stake into the parasite philosophy -
- or the Fallen Godhood theory -
- or the suggestion that we were placed here as punishment for -
- and it can't be denied that the surface dwellers are -
- we would lose our homes -
- our heritage lies within these walls -
- if the Masked Corruption or Broken Saint were here -

[The last comment makes him snap.]

I'm sure if Ton Karakael were here he would be saying the same things, but perhaps with more expletives. Your gods would act more sensible than you and that is impressive given the idiocy they were apparently prone to. Practicality is not a sin, gentlemen, nor is taking the opportunity to find a future for your civilization.

Your people will die, if not now, then in a hundred years when your dragon-home either dies or mates again. But you will not be given this opportunity again! I am giving you a choice gentlemen, and if you are too shackled by the imagined past to see the possibilities for your future, that is your own business. But please stop throwing around philosophy as excuses for your indecision!

[The camera cuts out, just as the first accusations of heresy are shouted by the gathering, even as others look shocked into agreement with the emissary.]

If you want help, I can always scare them out. Nothing like a little destruction to help hurry a decision along, right?

Right, right. This another group that think you're the Earth Satan equivilant?

[With the undertone, is this another group that's full of numbskulls?]

You're not crawling, for one.

And it's not like you can fake the Inquest coming back and telling them to get out because you're trying to wipe out all signs of it, right?

[How do they get them out?]

[The idea that it's 'they' and not just Karakael goes unsaid; Kefka hasn't even noticed how he's changed pronouns so readily to make them a unit. It seems obvious to him.]

What if I mind controlled a couple of them to agree?

Could I give them a new god?

[It's worth trying!]

But I have actual godhood!

It's not like I'll do it for long. I'll pop in, go "I'm a god and you need to get out or I'm ending the world," blow some stuff up, they'll leave!

What if I said I was a god who made the Inquest up to screw with them? Or I could pretend to be the crawling darkness! Or maybe if we used empirical proof to show that divine beings don't exist!

Which, of course, leads to the question of proving that gods don't exist. Maybe if I vandalized the more obvious examples of godhood?

Drat. Hmmm. What if we kill the dragon?

And you don't want to just kill them all. Pity. What if we knock them all unconscious, move them and their stuff out of the dragon while they're out, and then wake them up?

I can cast a mass Sleep spell, my people can move everyone out of the dragon with their strength and lots of teleport stones, so I just need a place to stash them afterwards and some instructions on how to take out the more difficult stuff, like plumbing!

And I can't just make a landmass, right?

sandinmyboots: (ah ah ah)
From: [personal profile] sandinmyboots
I'm not going to make stuff float; that takes too much power! I'll just take some available land and raise it a few feet to make a new archipelago. If you can set up stuff to get them fresh water and agriculture so they land on their feet, I think that'd work pretty well!

There's got to be some parts of land that are closer to the surface!

It can be very hard when people choose not to take well meant advice. I hope the situation improves.
