Why are we here?

As promised in the second Goriel thread, here's a quickie for addressing a question that Rose, Argus, Desiree, etc., would surely have considered on the flight north, namely the "cover story" for the expedition. None would be needed in dealing with the Veracian temple/embassy; the Veracian authorities would have briefed Father Boris to the point that he knew he was helping a Special Forces operation, even if he didn't (and had no need to) know what it was. However, that obviously would not be the story given to the Gorielian hoi polloi, let alone their big bosses.

Whatever we come up with should not be geared to the social interactions (notably the geteroi) we've had so far. The characters wouldn't have known those were coming. It would have been reasonable to assume they'd have something together for the governing officials, so that's probably the right level of fidelity to strive for.

Let's see (quickly) what we can come up with here. It would be nice to transact it all in the next day or less, so as not to hold up the play. Starting point: Maybe we're a trade delegation?

Update: Looks like Desiree is on it ... so let's take what Drusia wrote as a starting point, and see what the characters have to tell us. ;)

Agreed. I thought it was a great cover story.
