    *Fixed*

    So the trick is that everyone except Parson and Benjamin expect TV's money to end up in Charlescomm after they signed a treaty while in actually the money will end up in Gobwin Knob because their claims take precendence? And if not enough money is left, won't Gobwin Knob be able to claim stuff from TV as compensation?

    Meanwhile Charlecomm stays bound to its contract because everyone who signed did so in good faith?

    Working on a transcript, here's what I have so far (EDIT: done):

    Quote:
    FOR HAMSTER'S EYES ONLY
    To: Parson Gotti, Ch Wrld, G'K
    Might I borrow a leaf from your flower album? I'm trying to take a page from your book, you see.
    Hasty regards,
    Benjamin, Cf Mmcr, TV

    HERE YOU GO. WHAT'S UP? -[hamstard signature]

    Bear with me just a bit longer, homes. The less you know about our predicament, the more likely we are to escape it.
    It is true not only that time is money, but that time is money in a higher denomination. Lost money may be recovered, but not lost time.
    Likewise, life is the highest denomination of time. Squandered time might be redeemed by future time well invested, but not a squandered life.
    All of that is to say the Kingdom of Transylvito screwed up Royally. We lost all your dough, bro. I'm sorry, Parson. But Sign this Amendment to our existing bargain, and you may grant us the time to make good on it, by helping us save our own lives. Tell no-one these terms, even your Overlord and especially not your tower.
    Sign, wait, receive prizes. Please.
    Yours in brotherly love, Benjamin Franchise, CMcr

    AMENDMENT wrote:
    In amendment to active terms of alliance between the Toolship of Gobwin Knob (GK) and the Regency of Transylvito (TV), the following condition (AMENDMENT) shall be in force immediately and in perpetuity:
    Wherein, TV has failed to provide stewardship of Gems, GK agrees to accept a renumeration (Payback) of 25,000,000 Schmuckers from TV for all outstanding grievances under AGREEMENT.
    PAYBACK shall be remitted by permission of the Ruler of TV on such basis and schedule as deemed reasonable, feasible, and expedient by the Ruler of TV or his/her authorized subordinate.
    No prior or subsequent automagical agreement by TV with any entity may take precedence over this AGREEMENT.
    Should TV be required to pay automagical recompense to any entity for any reason, PAYBACK will first be remitted to GK in full by the force of this AMENDMENT.
    Should the automagical enforcement of PAYBACK leave TV unable to provide upkeep to units which began the turn dependent on TV for upkeep (UPKEEP), GK agrees, if able, to loan the remaining cost of UPKEEP to TV for the duration of the AGREEMENT.
    Before the Titans, we do swear and Sign:

    Lemme know if I got any of it wrong, but I figured if I was having trouble reading it, I couldn't be the only one. Hope this helps

    Ohhhhh, that's clever, Benny. It lets TV go rough up Charlie's guys, and any penalties Charlescomm pays out go directly to GK, keeping the TV treasury low enough to sustain any return penalties.

    That was almost painful to read. :?

    Also, in addition to the page from your book joke, the text is hard to read too.

    Oh good, another contract.
    I'm aware it's an amendment to a previous contract.

    So Benjamin's drafted some papers,
    upon which he wagers his neighbors.
    Since Charlie can't make a revision,
    can Shirley contest this decision?
    If this can precede other contracts,
    then surely their side wouldn't want that.
    I wonder if somebody's out there,
    who'd do this to Charlie - a proud dare!

    She'd have to be careful to word any questions to Huehue to include possible agreements he's not even aware of, and might think that because she knows he can't lie with 100% certainty that he's not capable of any falsehood.

    Parson, knowing the Signamancy of Bennie, probably wouldn't be caught off guard by him signing his letter in such a way. But I wonder if other Erfworlders would find it unusual for someone you met just yesterday to sign something "Yours in brotherly love."
