    Mag whimpers and drags himself back to his seat, pulling out a rolled-up sheet of what looks like thick blue paper, before spreading it out across the table, a sort of blank, terrified stare on his face as he does so. A button in one corner of it is pressed, and a 3-D display of the area appears, gradually zooming in and updating itself every few seconds as the MagSat takes more recent pictures.

    I'll send clones and Magbots out as soon as possible. Anything else? I'm not an emergency person, I don't normally do things like err...this, I umm...

    Zee is...

    Not here.

    She hasn't been here for the last little while.

    Probably because she walked out of the room as soon as she realized what was happening in the slums. She can get there fast. And she can help to heal those most wounded. Hopefully she'll get some help fast, though. Healing takes quite a bit out of the Chimera.

    Quite literally.

    Sooo... yeah.

    Looks like this meeting might be adjourned?

    Or something?

    "I can help with healing," she offers, in a hurry.

    "We are not adjourning the meeting. Those who think they should go, can go, but the rest of us are going to hammer out a manifesto and broadcast it into the city, along with our response to this attack." Delisle says firmly.

    She passes out some copies of various 'hey, we're your brand new shiny government' manifestos from different countries / worlds / dimensions with suggestions highlighted, but since actually writing such a thing sounds a lot like homework, HT suggests doing it as a montage. We can just summarize it as 'Hey we're the new government, our goal is protect the citizens from external threats and internal dissension and all of you people in the Nexus have rights, even the smelly elves.'

    The Moff pulls a pencil from his pocket and browses through Delisle's suggestions, circling some of the more important odds and ends. He doesn't make any concrete suggestions, though. Perhaps he's gotten the message.

    Psi suddenly stands up. "Understood. Now closing Social Human Interaction mode. Interface shutting down. Completely shut down.

    Loading Information Database mode. Accessing. Loading Data."


    In one swift movement, she takes one of the copies of the paper, and a pen. She looks at it and her eyes flash from right to left as she reads the paper at incredible speed.

    "Text appears to be compatible as file for database. Now converting file." At the same incredible speed, she reads the entire paper out loud. The whole thing takes roughly five seconds. "File transfer complete. Encoding. Data successfully logged. Now closing Information Database mode. Closed.

    Data received. Now initiating Data Capture and Processing Mode.

    Loading.
    Loading.
    Loading.
    Complete."


    And then she sits again, places the paper on the table, blank side up, and holds the pen above the paper.

    "Now ready to capture data."

    Wheee! Montage!

    When the manifesto is done, Delisle asks Poise to have it broadcast on Aurora Air, along with assurances that the united forces of the Inside government are working together in the face of the latest disaster etc, blah blah, player is too tired to come up with something better. x.x

    Poise says smoothly.
    "If that's all, perhaps we should adjourn for now? Speak to our respective organizations and tentatively reach out to the public to get an idea of reactions, and solidify from there?"

    Tobias clears his throat and turns to Dipsnig. He looks... almost embarrassed. My subordinate is... ah... actually with Phil in his spaceship at the moment. She was completely unaware of this attack. She should be able to convince him to surrender, especially if he, as he claims, respects HALO and the Remnant. If she can't, she should be able to bring him in anyways. Dipsnig, your operative might be needed if Phil puts up a fight, but I don't want him going in there and threatening Phil, you understand? This needs to be handled carefully.

    Dipsnig switches off the phone. My second-in-command will be here shortly. He turns to Tobias. I hear you, Tobias. Raz can handle himself and will proceed with care if I tell him to.

    "Well, no," Quinn says, moving over to speak with the Lieutenant, giving Tobias a nod and smile on her way to do so. "It's...well, about something the Commander said earlier, about 'mingling with the troops' and conflicts of interest. There's a bit of a...sensitive matter with regards to that and I want to make sure it doesn't affect our working relationship."

    Tobias completely ignores Quinn and smiles wryly at Dipsnig. Good. If Phil got really pissed off, I'd be willing to bet he could do a lot more damage from that spaceship.

    The mage is moving over to Tobias, but will wait for Quinn and him to finish speaking before she say anything. That was the polite course of action after all.

    Probably, yeah. It sounded from this broadcast that he's really egotic. And it wouldn't take much to push him over the edge.

    Delisle presses a few buttons, and those who are aware of such things will know that the dimension lock has been deactivated. "The coordinates are <blah blah blah>"

    And *handwave retcon* council members have been supplied with communicators that are hard wired in to reach the other members of the council directly. Except for Zee, who left before she could get hers.

    Exactly. I have faith in my subordinate's ability to handle the situation, however. But your group may be needed to either keep him detained on the ground or go up in space after him... if you have any members that can do that...?

    Blargh I'm an idiot. Okay, after Tobias finishes with Dipsnig (effectively plotcloning for this conversation, I guess) he turns to Cessie and smiles. Of course. I would be more than happy to give you a tour myself.

    Like I said, most of my subordinates are away doing contracts right now. Raz is a competent mage and thief, though. So he'll be able to assist other people who would go after Phil.

    Okay. I'm in telepathic contact with my subordinate in space, so if the situation changes I'll tell you immediately. Otherwise, I'll let you manage your man at your discretion. Tobias nods at Dipsnig, then turns back to Cessie. Let's leave the building and then I'll teleport us there.
