"Then you will need to ensure the other side does not have a chance to make a counter offer. What would be your immediate goals? If you are asking for aid from a civilization instead of a god, it is unlikely they will be willing or able to remove Eru as the first step."

"I'm still willing to ask a god, but with a civilization I could defy the divine plan on my own - anything I did with external help would be - or flee this world and have contact with the multiverse -"

Permalink

"A civilization has less immediate risk. Diplomats and political leaders aren't going to lash out if you say the wrong thing. Would you be willing to change your appearance?"

Permalink

"Certainly, but it takes some time to get something more than a eerily incorrect simalcrum - I have an associate who can do an attractive humanoid form -"

Permalink

"Humanoid is what you want to avoid. There is a widespread prejudice against humans, the species I am or used to be I guess, and you will be more successful if you do not trigger it."

Permalink

"..Hmm. Why is that? What works better?"

Permalink

"Humans are seen as the weeds of the multiverse. They- we appear everywhere. The actions of a few groups of humans has poisoned many against all humans. Any appearance that does not look humanoid would be fine."

Permalink

"That can be achieved.

 

I had hoped that with time would come - moral progress."

Permalink

"It has. Humans are seen as backwards and it's a prejudice that will affect species who haven't learned to banish internal biases."

Permalink

Nod. "I want to petition help to fight Eru for our world. But I want all of the orcs clear first, and it'd be good to establish some opportunities and trading relationships for them once they are."

Permalink

Alex nods.

"I don't think the prejudice will hinder you in the long term and I wouldn't suggest you changing if you did look human, but there's not reason to make the first impression worse if it's up to you. There are charity organizations that can help with the evacuation. I'd suggest contacting one of them first. They won't help you fight but they can help set up the new world."

Permalink

"Let's do that right now, then."

Permalink

"There's several options, but I think I know who you should talk to. Can you find several orcs who would be willing to speak to their representative?"

Permalink

"Certainly." And after a minute a few orcs come over.

Permalink

Alex nods at them.

"Do you live here?"

Permalink

"Can you find someone from outside who would be willing as well?"

Permalink

"...yes, but they all live a couple days' travel away..."

Permalink

"I can get around that."

Permalink

"In that case we can go ask."

Permalink

"Do you mind being teleported?"

Permalink

"No! You can do that?"

Permalink

"I can."

Permalink

"Cool!"

Permalink

"Do you know some orcs who could handle being around beings that are very strange?"
