A gentleman from the Mithridate Office - the Presbyterate's ministry of lies - has come to discuss the feral Court. Such intelligence could be precious, but I cannot recommend him. Your predecessors only suffered from conversing with the gentleman."

Success

An ember of truth

The Poised Envoy […] starts with a warning […]

[…] None of it is worth writing down. Until, that is, he describes the tiger's affinity for flame […] The Poised Envoy stutters as you do, drags a finger to his lips, and takes his leave. […]

Description summary:
You ignore the Envoy's suggestion to take notes as he proceeds to lie, and lie, and lie, until he lets slip a single truth. Jotting it down sends him into a shaky retreat.

Description summary:
The Envoy fills you with two whole books' worth of disinformation while you write yourself into a stupor.
