What's it like in the city?

What do you do for fun?

Tell me about your family?

I like your style hombre, but this is no laughing matter. Assault on a police officer. Theft of police property. Illegal possession of a firearm. FIVE counts of attempted murder. That comes to... 29 dollars and 40 cents. Cash, cheque, or credit card?

Why are you the King / How did you become King? Was your father the King (did you inherit it)?

Lets go with a follow-up then:

why do you/others have 6 fingers?
"The King says it is a sign of favor from El."



GloriousDemon posted:

Do you have to be a king to have great powers? Where do the powers come from?
"The king says that all good things in life come from El."

GloriousDemon posted:

What do the angels look like if they are not giants?
"The King says that the angels look like men, but taller and beautiful and that they glow with the light of El. They also have wings like great eagles. Oh. An eagle is a very large bird that does not live in the forest, Sweetling."

GloriousDemon posted:

How old are you King Dad?
You have no frame of reference to ask this, you can't count past 10.

GloriousDemon posted:

Is there more monsters in the city like the donkeys, have you seen or fought bigger monsters?
Tudiya says something and then Danal, still riding on your shoulders, says something with a tone of excitement and enthusiasm! He swooshes a little branch he is holding in the air as if he were slaying monsters. Tudiya laughs, as do many of the other men. Your mother translates.

"There are no monsters in Zepath. The King is a great Hero like from the stories Sweetling and a slayer of many great and terrible monsters, he and his Mighty Men, the other men with us. The King even slew a dragon! What is a dragon Sweetling? Oh, it is a giant lizard as big as the village covered in scales which can breathe fire and fly!"

Danal, still on your shoulders says something else and makes a roaring noise. "Danal says that the terrible blue dragon whose name was Voehoo attacked the city but that the King slew it in a great battle, then he cut off it's head and they used it's great skull to make a gate for the city."

At this your mother asks Tudiya a question which you might guess is "Really?"

Barkof, one of the other outsiders says something, your mother translates. "He says that the King is too humble to admit it but that it is true."

At that, Tudiya does speak up. Your mother translates, even though you understand and can almost reach out and touch his words. "Child. Remember always that a heart filled with El is greater than any sword or dragon."

Your mother translates. Danal says something with am excited tone AMD seems rather happy to be the target of your questions. "Sweetling. Danal says that the city is nice but that he hopes he will get to see the Mighty Men slay more monsters and that they are more fun."

EVG posted:

What do you do for fun?
"He says he plays games with his sisters or with his dogs and that he misses them. His dogs. Not his sisters." Danal laughs at the end.

EVG posted:

"He says that his mama is very nice and his sisters are fun and that and that his father is the greatest hero in all of Ur and that he wants to be a big hero some day just like him!" Danal makes a roaring noise and swings his stick at another imaginary monster, your mother laughs.

Vavrek posted:

"The Great King says that he was chosen by his father among his brothers to be king, who was king before him and the blood of Labaras. He says that Zepath was built by the great hero and explorer, Zepar, the son of Labaras who most loved to walk to far places."

Your mother translates the question and the response.

Danal barks several times, then speaks.

"He says that that is the noise a dog makes and that a dog is an animal with four legs and a tail and that they are hairy and that they are man's best friend and that they love to play." The other men laugh at the explanation.

Danal says something else. Your mother translates. "He says he will give you a puppy when we get to our new home because you are his friend now and asks what you will name it."

MINIVOTE: What is your response?



Deadly Ham Sandwich posted:

You do a quick toe count. Your people go barefoot. The outsiders wear a piece of clothing you do not recognize. Sandals. Those with six fingers also have six toes.



Arkanomen posted:

Ask Jalitha to Ask Danal to teach us new words as we walk.

"The King says he will teach you about El as we go home, which will take about a month, starting tonight."

Your mother asks the question. "He says it will be a game, Sweetling." You begin to play a game with Danal where he points things that he sees out and says a word in the outsider tongue.

Do we want to ask about what will happen to our village? A lot of NEW is happening and we still might ask. I don't know how... Tudiya is a king though and if we ask right he should understand? Anyone else have any ideas about how to ask? Maybe...

Tudiya, sometimes I am wondering about the people from the village where I grew up... I am told I should forget them, but I cannot. Kings are wise. What would you do?

Yea, really jumping the gun, people. Wait.

My response to Danal: "Dogs seem like play-things for little children. I will see your dogs, but I will to mature to do as men do, not as children. A thing of value cast to dogs is a waste for they will devour it. I will not cast my efforts to dogs, but to men and women, young and old."

Voters, we've gotten an honorable hair-cutting and naming from the king of Zepath and you want to squander away with animal-keeping? There will be a reason we are set apart from the sons of Tudiya: not because we are weak and childlike, because we are meek and mature.

Meekness is the control of power, not the absence of power.

E: new vote, posted.
