programable entities like constructs are often incapable of articulating things they have not been specifically commanded not to disclose,  and no amount of questioning can help that one bit.

Re: The Black Tower
Amelia takes her left shoe off and massages her foot, still reading the book. Looks like she's getting ready to spend some hours here.

He thinks for a bit.

"Have you been commanded not to tell anything about him, or can you not answer that question either? Perhaps show me his favourite section instead..."

"Were you programmed to be as unhelpful as possible? Where are the sections of fire magic, or necromancy, for example?"

Amelia starts on chapter 2, then says over the top of the book, "Library chairs aren't he most comfortable. I'm getting a flattened posterior. Can we move along and actually do something soon? Please?"

It would appear that anything to do with magic, occult sciences. or Thaumatology have been removed from the shelves.

The chairs are actually fairly comfortable.




occ too many folks posting in blue. Could Amelia use pink, or another color

Berry manages some effort as she looks through the books. It is slow. I'm all for stopping for the day to read books.

"Yes, Berry, there's nothig like a good read. Except, perhaps, good company," Amelia quips after catching Berry's eyes. She rolls her own and then points with her eyes in Gareth's direction.

Re: The Black Tower
Amelia looks at his blankly, "Oh so you've decided that we should all follow the helpful fellow on a guided tour of the tower so that we might be told which areas we shhould definitely not wander? What a marvellous idea. Almost more interesting than endless reading and talking." She rubs her foot and then puts her shoe back on.

Catching his eye she adds, "We can figure out what to do, reading, talking or whatever, after that."

"I have not decided anything. On the contrary, I have been criticised for acting as an individual, so I am trying to practice being more considerate and taking into account what everyone else is doing...personally I am probably happy with either option."

"Well, you're to be commended for getting into the teamworking thing, Gareth. Thank you."
Amelia smiles; a smile just for him.

She looks over to the tower's 'companion', "Would you be able and allowed to give us a guided tour of this tower so that we might know where we shouldn't go?

"We have been buy the entryway and foyer, where one of your ilk rudly laid their hands on my person, and was chastised for their boldness, and in a room that used to hold four stone golems, and then we followed the rude one to the charging room or whatever it was and came to you "
