D: "It's your choice but having you along is extra insurance that we can't be intercepted. You know what's going on here, you're aware of how this works. We can't afford the risk that otherworldly powers --- of various sorts --- will interfere in any teleportation attempts.

And another thing: Are you CERTAIN that that Pillar hasn't been corrupted or made into a failsafe by the Secondborn? And is there any reason you wouldn't be able to find it even if it was moved?

Furthermore, we know that powerful forces in the form of the Mittani were working here, even you may have trouble with their sort alone since we would REALLY prefer it if you could avoid, y'know, razing the town to the ground with the powers you have access to."

A: no change, if anyone gets close enough to the fake to spot a difference in hair color (surely we wear helmets or at least hats here in the military, every military has worn one or the other for millennia) or eye color, of all things then we've already screwed up, they should NOT be allowed that close to the fake or to the real thing, we're a military in combat operations not a parade. Oh, *and* they'd need to have someone in this hypothetical rescue team who already knows exactly the color of Jacob's hair and eyes.

B: no need to slow down the pace of the game right now...furthermore the sorts of enquiries that would need to be launched to evaluate the financial situation would take many weeks at best, or months if there's a real bureaucracy to go through. In other words....it's not something that needs to be addressed between now and the inevitable rescue attempt.

Jacob's a kid right now, an overly edgy teen to be exact. He can't rot in prison for much time at all, it'd be against the laws of narrative.

“He did booby-trap the Pillar,” says David. “But I know how to get past that. And the sooner I get it up and working, the sooner I can send some more predictions your way. I’ll go with your convoy, but I don’t see what good I’m doing guarding a decoy.”

Celling watches David walk off to the side. A few minutes later, Fansworth and his soldiers step out of the building. Jacob’s squirming slightly in his new uniform, and Fansworth’s men are subtly aiming their guns in his direction. James Emand looks remarkably like the rebel, but the ruse would break down under a close examination. Good thing they don’t plan on allowing a close examination, then.

The men shuffle around as they prepare to start what to all outside eyes will appear to be a fight. The plan begins.

And it goes off without a hitch.



As Celling’s party arrives at the trains, they are intercepted by a stout Antarctican man in a suit whom Celling instantly recognizes as Prenner Goldsmith, Baron of Argentina. He is flanked by several guards on either side. Celling and his men bow before him.

“Wenton Celling,” Baron Goldsmith says, with a hint of cold distaste. “I’d like to ask you why you saw fit to have the fine city of Montevideo evacuated, causing incalculable economic and societal harm, on the fear of a hurricane, which as we can all see has not happened. And I’ll be taking custody of that rebel from now on. I’ll see to it that he’s delivered safely back to Antarctica.”

What do you do?

"What sources I had available indicated that the city was likely to be hit by a sudden disaster. The people know what to do about hurricanes and the evacuation was a sufficient response to ensure safety of the populace. The disaster was thankfully averted, but that had not been certain when we initiated the evacuation.
And I'm afraid we don't have a rebel with us. James Emand here is one of ours. We had him switch clothes with the captured rebel to prevent the actual escort from being intercepted by sympathizers. I'm sorry you fell for it too, sir. I mean, if you really need to take him for a bit to confirm it, you probably can, but he's not who you were looking for. Apologies."

A. He is a noble in a monarchy, he have access to military sources as much or even more then us on his local domain, or at least could claim those, we tell him were expecting an attack on the base with fightings potentially getting to the city, but this risk was averted.
B. I will eat my hat if he isn't a rebel supporter for some degree, helping the rebel leader escape grants him immense power in the nation they will build after they get independent, and besides, why we tell everyone our secret plan, until proven otherwise, the man we are holding is Jacob whatisname, the former rebel leader who we escort ourselves for we are the only ones in South America who knows where the King want to put him.

Okay, screw you all. This has taken too long.

What do you do about the Baron situation?

A: “Ah yes, about that. This rebel is a decoy we prepared to draw off pursuit. The real one is heading to the docks.”
B: “The location of the captured rebel is classified. This one is a decoy. We cannot tell you where the real one is.”
C: “This is Antarctica’s business and you don’t have jurisdiction here. Let us pass.”
D: “We will turn Jacob Eldin over to your custody, provided that we can escort him.”
E: “Alright, take him.”

D.

Even if it gets all the way to him showing someone else, he’ll have to deal with the humiliation of “that’s the wrong guy.”

Screw your options, screw your character, and screw your setting.

I think we say "this is classified military business dealing with an Antarctica-wide insurrection, if you attempt to stop us we will arrest you for the crime of aiding and abetting an enemy of the crown and the state."

Agreeing with Madman. 1.

Also why haven’t we just murdered Jacob yet given the chance? Plot armor only goes so damn far.

I think because killing Jacob gives a motive for future plot chosen character much more then teaching him the truth.

Mostly because DARNIT WE'RE THE GOOD GUYS and don't want to be the sort of people who murder children, even if it would be totally legal in any modern country to kill them for terrorism and treason and such.

This. Because for all that this is a tropes-based story, we’re not what the Plot wants us to be, and we refuse to become it.

Baron Goldsmith laughs. “Oh what’s that, Mr. Celling? It’s an Antarctica-wide insurrection now? I was led to believe that the problem was just a small group of troublemakers that would be handled quickly by the oh-so-loyal Captain Celling! Or could it be that the Crown isn’t holding its own territory as well as they want us to think? You will hand over this rebel to my men at once!”

He turns to one of the guards that came with him. “Guardsman Iridium, take him away.”

The Guardsman, a tall, handsome fellow, drew his revolver.

"Sir, with all due respect, I was never truly on your side," he said, in an accent neither Antarctican nor Argentine.

He pulled the trigger, waiting to see Baron Prenner Goldsmith breathe his last.
