Distracting paperwork....yeah, with the mood his unstablness is in, it would have to be some serious matter to get him to put off his scheming.
Centcomm 7th Dec 2012, 12:17 AM edit delete reply

Oh our dear Kali's plan fits neatly into place. you havent heard the WHOLE plan yet... :D
velvetsanity 14th Apr 2013, 4:51 PM edit delete reply

I'm guessing it involves Ex-Lax :D

Kali plans to use the most appropriate method of execution for a government type: Death by a Thousand Paper Cuts.
cattservant 7th Dec 2012, 12:15 AM edit delete reply

A very good question!
And Acantha knows him
Better than anyone.

Maybe Kali could find an old commando raid laying around and use it to keep Decimus amused...
Centcomm 7th Dec 2012, 12:17 AM edit delete reply

yes she does... :D
Rashala 7th Dec 2012, 1:15 AM edit delete reply

Very sexy paperwork?
Centcomm 7th Dec 2012, 7:11 AM edit delete reply

very unlikely..shes not the princes type
cattservant 7th Dec 2012, 6:31 AM edit delete reply

I just realized,
It's time for the Royal Annual NRGAP Inspection.
Klever Kali!
Centcomm 7th Dec 2012, 7:11 AM edit delete reply

indeed - and also all those stimbolts need counting and the yearly dog show ..and dust inspection.
cattservant 7th Dec 2012, 7:30 AM edit delete reply

That's right!
And the Prince just can't trust anyone else to do it correctly.

(His Cat won't do it either!)
Centcomm 7th Dec 2012, 8:35 AM edit delete reply

of course not .. hehehe!
Death2Bravo 7th Dec 2012, 9:02 AM edit delete reply

If anyone can blind someone with paperwork it'll be Kali. It'll just come out of nowhere, things he never knew needed doing will demand his personal attention.
Centcomm 7th Dec 2012, 9:06 AM edit delete reply

Yup shes a real paper ninja!
Deck "What is THIS FOR!"
Kali " Thats the budget for air conditioner refit personell its very important. its only a two hundred page impact report on the royal budget. also you have to read and initial each paragraph...."
Marcus Ramesy 7th Dec 2012, 12:48 PM edit delete reply

why do I not see that working??
velvetsanity 14th Apr 2013, 4:53 PM edit delete reply

Because it leaves out the Ex-Lax part of the plan. The entire plan hinges upon intake of massive quantities of Ex-Lax on drekhead's part.
Kuratenshi 7th Dec 2012, 12:43 PM edit delete reply

Even easier to distract someone with paperwork if you consider at least some of the bureaucracy expendable in this case. "Person X has not been doing his job. Person Y has been extorting good. Person Z has been lying through his teeth and now everything is about to explode. I have replacements coming in, but we HAVE to have someone competent on this until the replacements are actually ready!"

If you want to distract a megalomaniac you need to amuse him with your distractions at the same time they should not look like distractions so you give him relatively normal things you know he'll twist around for his own amusement(the kind of things you would normally steer away from him.)
Centcomm 8th Dec 2012, 2:01 AM edit delete reply

heh you just discribed how some roma officials get elected. they have refined dirty politics to a high level.
Dragonrider 7th Dec 2012, 4:13 PM edit delete reply

The next important question unanswered in the conversations is where is Lynn going to be? Ari is staying with The Princess, Maxius is moving her away but no mention of Lynn.
Centcomm 7th Dec 2012, 4:19 PM edit delete reply

Lynn kinda fell between the cracks.. however the prince has made sure the two of them are kinda tied to each other note no ones removed the band and thats linked to Acantha.
Rashala 7th Dec 2012, 5:26 PM edit delete reply

I wonder.....Is Kali's Overarchign goal to become the Nova Roma equivalent of Centy...Hmmmmmmmmmmm
cattservant 7th Dec 2012, 6:28 PM edit delete reply

I don't think her personality is 'detailed' enough!
I couldn't imagine Kali as
a NaCl narc.
Centcomm 8th Dec 2012, 2:02 AM edit delete reply

@ cat

a what?
Centcomm 8th Dec 2012, 2:02 AM edit delete reply

cent? no not quite Kali prefers not to be in the spotlight .. those things interfear with her ability to do shadow work.
cattservant 8th Dec 2012, 2:18 AM edit delete reply

Exactly what I was referring to!
Who could imagine Kali giving a damn about how much salt the citizens use on their steaks!

(On a completely different subject:
The rumor is that you can find time to read a book occasionally.
Have you ever read Norman Spinnard's
"Riding the Torch"?
Well worth it!)
Centcomm 8th Dec 2012, 2:38 AM edit delete reply

hehe she doesnt sweat the small stuff ,
and nope havent read that one. actually I rarely have time for anything ..
cattservant 8th Dec 2012, 2:41 AM edit delete reply

Treat your 'mule' well,
It will carry you farther!
mushroomisland 10th Dec 2012, 11:44 PM edit delete reply

how the hell do you distract with paperwork o_o unless she means to put him in sleep, which makes more sense :P
Centcomm 10th Dec 2012, 11:45 PM edit delete reply

it takes a lot of paperwork to run a empire.. deck doesnt realize JUST HOW much of it hes been slacking and others have been covering..
Chris D 28th Sep 2015, 6:41 PM edit delete reply
Kind of hard not to cover him on his paperwork, when the price for interfering in his quest for debauchery will earn you fifty lashes or maybe a nice gang-rape.
Chris D 28th Sep 2015, 6:38 PM edit delete reply
It's action paperwork. The most devious and dastardly of all paperwork that has come before or since. WHAT HATH MAD SCIENCE WROUGHT!?!
Some Ed 2nd Jun 2017, 11:23 AM edit delete reply
The easy way to distract a paranoid megalomaniac with paperwork: hide the incredibly voluminous paperwork from him... poorly.
