It's fascinating how two people can witness the same thing, yet interpret what they saw in two totally different ways.
A dozen Knights of the Order killed Flora Katelo's Orca. Agent Nitetime Video found it to be an exhilarating battle. Flora didn't.
After the ice-breaker (no pun intended), Nitetime casually mentioned the fact that he sells mining permits. Flora was a cautious consumer. She was only interested in buying a real permit, not a fake one.
Nitetime had the proof of the Code to back him up. Flora said she couldn't believe him. She underestimated her capacity for belief!
Running the numbers, the deal was too good for Flora to pass up. The math is very simple. You'd be surprised how many miners have trouble with math, though.
This is what separates a good permit salesman from a great permit salesman. There's a reason why people who work at fast food restaurants are trained to ask, "Do you want fries with that?"
Speaking with a freshly-killed carebear can be a bit like walking through a minefield, even if they've just bought a permit. You never know what might set them off:
The "F" word made Flora explode. Our hero already had her money, though.
Luckily, Flora cooled off. She knew she needed more information to ensure the safety of her future Orca(s).
Things were touch-and-go for a moment there, but the story had a happy ending for everyone involved, and the two parted as friends. And if there's one thing the New Order has a lot of, it's friends.
