- Learn Rebuttals
Place your new Rebuttal "Lay Blame" in your strategy.
Win the 'Rebuttal' parley with <trainer>, and practice using your new Rebut.
<Trainer> says, "Rebuttal is the art of taking Expression from your opponent. It is a subtl tool, perfect for Mordebi diplomats."
"Those who use it find that they can take apart an opponent's Strategy much more quickly."
"Let's see what you can do with it. I will give you a Statement to put in your Strategy. Use it on me in practice parley."
You say, "Are Rebuts like Repeals?"
<Trainer> says, "Not really, but they are just as useful. A Repeal is for conversion. A Rebuttal is for denial."
<Trainer> gives you an encouraging smile.
<Trainer> says, "In this parley, you will see me building up Flattery to make Assertions against you."
<Trainer> says, "If you have placed your Rebut called 'Greener Pastures' in your Strategy, use it on me now."
<Trainer> says, "Provided you have a head on me, spending a turn to take away my ability to fight back makes your victory even more assured!"
<Trainer> stifles a yawn, waiting for you to grasp the lesson.
<Trainer> says, "Make no mistake, a Rebuttal is only useful when used at just the right moment."
<Trainer> studies your expressions carefully, trying to gauge whether you look lost or confused.
<Trainer> says, "Gain an advantage, wait for your opponent to play an Evaluation, then use your Rebuttal!"
<Trainer> says, "Tailoring your Strategy using Repeals and Rebuts will spell the difference between victory and defeat someday."
<Trainer> says, "Well, that was quite impressive, <playername>. Rebuts are next to useless unless you can predict your opponent's strength. Remember to gain an advanage over them, then carefully swipe their Expression.
<Trainer> says, "Denial of Expression powerful, <playername>. I think you already understand its worth."
"You're ready to start growing as a diplomat. Seek out Shebtigo Wedjejeh to learn about Civic Diplomacy."
