Transcript:
Lexicat: What I won’t spoil for you is what its symbol is.

Kyle: Big middle finger.

Viking: Just a massive middle finger.

Viking: New god name, FLIPS-YOU-OFF.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: IF YOU KNOW SO MUCH…(laughs)

Lexicat: I know enough.

Viking: Well, well, well. I didn’t just—freak out!

Lexicat: I know enough to make your life harder. That being said, it’s not like I care one way or another. All I want is my sister back. I hear a tale that you’re stopping that.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: PEOPLE TALK. THAT DOESN’T SOUND LIKE ME.

Lexicat: No, you act, don’t you.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: WELL. I LIKE TO SEE WHAT PEOPLE ARE CAPABLE OF.

Lexicat: I’m capable of…terrible things, and much more than that.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: WELL. IN THAT CASE, WE HAVE A LOT IN COMMON.

Lexicat: I won’t deny that we do. My only quarrel with you is that I heard directly from others, that your presence is what blocks them from finding my sister.

Lexicat: I’ve said, time and time again, I’ll do anything necessary to get her back, to give her the life she deserves. All else, doesn’t matter. I’ll use any methods.

Lexicat: So. Tell me? Are you standing against me? Or are you willing to….make a deal?

Viking: (under his breath) whaaat deal? Oh my—

HUNT-THE-STRONG: WELL, FIRST OF ALL. I AM…IRRITATED BY ALL THE SULKING GOING ON RIGHT NOW.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: SO, LET’S PUT A STOP TO THAT.

Lexicat: No more shadows, huh?

HUNT-THE-STRONG: NOT TONIGHT. IF YOU WANT AN AUDIENCE, YOU’LL HAVE TO EARN IT.

Lexicat: I see.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: AS FOR THE PRATTLE OF OTHERS

Viking: Oy! I’m right here!

(Viking takes a small crunch of damage.)

HUNT-THE-STRONG: AS FOR THE PRATTLE OF OTHERS, IT’S ILL ADVISED TO HEED THE WARNINGS OF TATTERING GOSSIPS.

Lexicat: Perhaps.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO GET STUCK IN YOUR TEETH.

Lexicat: (laughs) So then, allow me to make a proposition to you.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: I’M LISTENING.

Lexicat: My loyalty has always lied with whichever daimon, voice, whatever you call yourselves, who will return my sister to me, alive, that is. Her death would cause much other problems. So! If we can…

(HUNT-THE-STRONG makes a reactionary sound.)

Lexicat: Then—we can work to do other things, too. There is an alliance coming for your head, HUNT-THE-STRONG, I’ve seen its inner workings, I know its plans, I can be of much use to you, if you are of course, of use to me.

Lexicat: You say you look for the strongest? Let me prove how strong I am to you. Of course, you have to hold up your end of the bargain.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: WELL. FOR STARTERS.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: I’M ALWAYS HAPPY TO ENCOURAGE STRENGTH.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: AND IF YOU HAVE GOALS, WELL. PERHAPS I CAN HELP THEM COME TO FRUITION.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: I DON’T GIVE GIFTS. I GIVE REWARDS.

Lexicat: Then tell me—what exactly would you have me do, in specifics? Strength needs a vector after all, otherwise it’s just misapplied force spread until it dissipates.

Lexicat: Give me a thing to accomplish and watch how easily I do it. And then, you may reward me.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: YOU MAKE INTERESTING POINTS.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: STRENGTH REQUIRES FOCUS.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: SO I WOULD ASK OF YOU, TO DO SOMETHING…THAT FRANKLY, I DON’T THINK YOU’RE CAPABLE OF.

Lexicat: Name it and we will see.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: FORSWEAR ALL OTHERS. BEYOND ME. TRULY. AND COMPLETELY.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: IF YOU CAN TRULY STOP HEDGING YOUR BETS, ENTREATING US LIKE SOME SQUABBLING PANTHEON, READY TO TURN YOUR ENEMY INTO AN AXE.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: WELL THEN, MAYBE THINGS CAN BE DISCUSSED.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: AND AS FOR THIS DELIGHTFUL MENAGERIE THAT’S COMING FOR MY HEAD.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: WHAT MAKES YOU THINK I HAVE ONE?

Lexicat: (laughs) Clever. I suppose you always were. So you would have me renounce all others. What exactly makes you think that if I were to say it, to truly mean it?

Lexicat: Which in genuine, I am considering it. Think that I am a liar all you wish, but I lie not when I say that all I wish is my sister’s safety.

Lexicat: So given that I am considering it, what exactly would you do to hold me to that?

(long pause)

Lexicat: Ooh, he might be gone.

Viking: Feck every kind of duck. Like…you’re messing with fire there, you’re messing with fire.

Viking: Every fiber of my being was like, I just want to scream, ‘THEE-I-DARE is going to take your face! And wear it as another face!’

Viking: But I didn’t want to interrupt. Because that was fecking! Yeah.

Kyle: I love video games.

Viking: I love video games!

Lexicat: I think that might have been him…doing his whole thing. (laughs)

Lexicat: (exhales) Jesus Christ Almighty.

Viking: That could have gone south fast…

HUNT-THE-STRONG: IT COULD STILL GO SOUTH FAST.

Lexicat: (laughs) How clever! I do like you. Sitting there quietly listening to our words.

Viking: I stand by mine!

Lexicat: ---is clearly your target.

Lexicat: I ask the same question because do not take it for weak will or anything such as that. I ask with genuine intent.

Lexicat: You ask for my loyalty, say I give it. How will I be held and more importantly, how will you be held?

Lexicat: Because if I join the Pact and you betray me, I’m sure you’re worried about the same for me, that I would swear and give nothing.

Lexicat: So how would we hold each other to our word, HUNT-THE-STRONG?

HUNT-THE-STRONG: WHAT MAKES YOU THINK I WORRY?

HUNT-THE-STRONG: ABOUT BETRAYAL OF SUCH TINY THINGS?

Lexicat: Oh I think you--

HUNT-THE-STRONG: IF YOU BETRAY ME, YOU SIMPLY DON’T GET ANYTHING YOU WANT.

Lexicat: I see. Hmph. So you--

HUNT-THE-STRONG: BUT. I DON’T THREATEN ANYONE.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: AND THE FACT THAT YOU THINK THAT I WOULD NEED TO MAKE THREATS, PROVES THAT YOU DO NOT COMPREHEND WHAT I AM.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: BUT. YOU’RE A CHILD OF ACTION. I RESPECT THAT.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: SO. I WILL GIVE YOU YOUR FIRST TASK.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: RENOUNCE ALL THE OTHER NAMES.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: OUT LOUD.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: TO ME, AND IN YOUR PRAYERS.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: THAT IS MORE THAN FAIR.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: TO BEGIN A SORT OF CONVERSATION.

Lexicat: Very well. If that is what it must be, that is what it must be.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: THAT’S THE KIND OF ATTITUDE THAT WILL GET YOU FAR.

Lexicat: I renounce thee, SPEAK-AS-ONE.

Lexicat: I renounce thee, THEE-I-DARE.

Lexicat: I renounce thee, DIE-FOR-YOU.

Lexicat: I renounce thee, THE-MEASURE-CUTS.

Lexicat: I renounce thee, IN-HER-TEETH.

Lexicat: I renounce thee, SEED-THE-GRUDGE.

Lexicat: Have I missed anyone?

Viking: Just my heart!

HUNT-THE-STRONG: RENOUNCE THE ONE WHOSE NAME NONE MAY SPEAK.

Lexicat: Ah--no problem.

Lexicat: I renounce you, DANCE-FOR-US. And, well. Is there another? Or is she gone within your maw?

HUNT-THE-STRONG: I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.

Lexicat: (laughs) The one whose symbol was the triskelion. She of the sun. May I renounce her?

HUNT-THE-STRONG: AS WELL. I KNOW NOT OF WHAT YOU SPEAK.

Viking: Ooh…

Lexicat: I see.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: YOU HAVE PLEASED ME.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING THESE SENTIMENTS ECHOED IN YOUR PRAYERS.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: GOOD NIGHT.

HUNT-THE-STRONG: AND HAPPY HUNTING, TO YOU ALL.

Viking: One day I will get you, you stupid hunt-faced person thing!

(Viking suddenly takes damage to minimum health. HUNT-THE-STRONG laughs.)

Viking: That was personal! Also, I needed those knees.

Kyle: You have my respect.

Viking: I’m telling THEE-I-DARE. HMM! HMMMM! I’m so grumbly!

Lexicat: I told you, I’ll do anything to save her.

Viking: You’re messing with dangerous powers, friend.

Lexicat: Perhaps I am.

Viking: That’s the worst part. We don’t know if he’s gone. Not until we leave.

Viking: HE CRUNCHED ME!

Lexicat: He crunched you?

Viking: Yeah, when I gave him shite, when I was like, ‘I’m gonna get you!’ he crunched me. Didn’t die but it was like, like a whole bunch.

Viking: Oh, feck me, at what point is it okay to start drinking during the day? Yes I know our characters are technically underage, but I’m going by UK rules at this point.

Viking: Yeah…yeah, we should go. We could go.
