Tekumel 10

The tinaliya finally produces some sound from it's moving beak, croaking "chk.. chk.. chk.. chk... my name is now Chk-chk" in a flat and unemotional drone.


The shen is encouraged somewhat by the fact this thing is speaking Shen. C'nor is surprised to hear his native tongue. Johannes hears the tinaliya's answer in German.


As you reach up to re-adjust the apparatus, Chk-chk says "may I get up first, master?"

Which native tongue? Am I hearing it in the hman of the original body, or the Shen of the currently dominant segment?

Anyway, as Chk-chk seems to be non-aggressive, I will untie him, but be prepared to defend myself.

C'nor: in the human featherface tongue :)

Good. Tina-buggy things only good if you roast them and then use lots of butter. We say untie the little bug. Maybe find something useful for it to do. Who this Johannes? Does he have anything good to eat with him? What is 'German'? It good to eat?

"German is my native tongue, and no, I'm most certainly not good to eat.."

Okay. No eat bugerman. Let him get up. Does he know anything about this place? Why was he strapped down to the slab? He know where some food might be?

He wasn't; I tied him up. Remember the last one that was woken up?
