Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part III


YAEYOEFUI: I have seen that the map wall was cut down, and lies in a hoop of ocean.

SORLIE: Yes, but that wasn't us. Iafa, the A.I. who was left in charge of Eina-Afa, dropped that wall millions of years ago.

YAEYOEFUI: It smells terribly irresponsible.

SORLIE: I agree. The first of our people to arrive here removed Iafa from control, and... umm...

Gave him a warship instead.

YAEYOEFUI: The smell is quite strong now.
