re-roll: [roll0] vs 35
EDIT: Hey, it actually worked.
Marcus sees through Ingron's attempted deception:
1) "What illicit augmentations are you referring to? As you can see, we don't have the workshop here to add any illegal additions to a cyber-construct. Nor do we have the specialized labor do do such a task." Ingron finished, waiving his hand around the room dismissively.
2)Ingron's jaw clenched tight, a vein bulged from his neck. "Fine. Have it your way." He gestured for a nearby man to step closer. "Porthal will answer any questions you have. For the record, we don't sell to third parties. We only move beasts between Circuses as needed. Everything we get dies in the pits - no escapes." He glared at Shryke. "You'll excuse me, I have a business to run." He turned and stomped off without another word.
1) He first tried to legitimize his deceit with a misleading conclusion feigning ignorance of the nature of the augmentations referred to.
2) Facial ticks betray this wholesale lie, and if he's lying about selling creatures off, falsified rosters showing deaths that never occurred in the cage is the easiest way to make beastly inventory disappear.
Babbles and Gideon, I'm afraid that's a whole lot of failed tests. Aria has a feeling that the noble is being misleading about the Auction in some manner. Please feel free to continue the conversation if you seek to dig deeper. Aria might even talk too
. If you want to know their name, the Lore test was a miss, so asking seems a logical next step.
Porthal described the symptoms of sickness among the Broscoraptors. They don't match up with what you saw, especially the inability to move.
