Tact

Today featured one of my worst moments yet for my tact roll.

It's one thing to say what you think. It's entirely another to say exactly what you think without any of the karma bonus modifiers or good history points or any of that, so that what comes out your mouth is the truth, and nothing but the truth, but not entirely the whole truth, just the least socially acceptable and most obnoxious parts of the truth.

I think I'm going to go call Darkside, then go hide in a hole in the ground. I came home from work early because my allergies started kicking my ass.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
