(Episode 8.1.b Mission Assist HUD)
>Date and location unavailable<
Mission control is eerily silent.
Sinistrus est contentus, sed tunc suspīciōsus.
“nōn possum vōs laudāre quod ‘Mission Control’ vōs certē adiuvērunt. eī vōbīs CŌDICEM aedificāvērunt et vōs sequimini sīcut ovēs. cōnexērunt ‘Wachowskis’? nōn dēbētis rēspondēre: certē cōnexērunt.
subitō Sinistrus est iratissimus. circumspectat lātīs oculīs. He raises his fists like some sort of tragic protagonist, and clāmat, “vituperō, Demiurge, quod mihi dēdistī vītam... sī possum vocāre diēs meōs 'vītam'. I am trapped here inside of your ‘game’!”
It’s a very awkward moment, but just as suddenly Sinistrus is back to his usual amused self, and he continues as if nothing had happened. “Well, here you are, ō Recentiī. I know that you need something, and that you need it whether you’re planning to play the Demiurge’s game” -- he chuckles at the word -- ”or planning to play somebody else’s -- mine or that stultus vir, Marcus’.
“dīcō hoc: vōbīs illud dāre possum.”
inquit māgnā vōce,
“Prompt: Figure out if Sinistrus is telling the truth.”
