A problem that has plagued many a thief in mechanus is that the logical modrons are tough to fast talk. So how does one pull the wool over the eyes of an aware automaton, Especially if you're not well lanned in Guvner logic? Well make it up and make it sound good. The Spurious Logic proficiency is a form of fast talk designed especially for modrons, it usually only works on low-mid ranking ones. The high-ups are way too smart for it and the lower ones are too narrow minded. Spurious logic is basically the ability to make up information that sounds logical but is false. For example....
Law is Chaos is Law
by Puras Ignitus, Son of Flame, Lord of the Flickering Dance
(by Paul Nasrat)
The Outer Planes, what do I care of them? I'm a genasi Son of Flame. You don't get any more real than me. The Outer Planes? Pathetic: All these berks running around trying to show their belief is best. They aren't real, and I can show it. Fire burns truth.
Let's listen to what this Mimir says about Limbo and Mechanus:-
Why I hear you ask? (Always asking never existing)
The enlightenment's like this, you think you know what law and chaos are - right. Well you are absolutely wrong. True chaos is not just insanity or acting mad, it is real unpredictability. What could be more unpredictable than Limbo being Mechanus...? Nothing really! Well that's what it is, at least some of the time.
Some thought-addled Guvner came out with this:-
What? I hear you cry: Face the fire and feel the truth! Same. If chaos is documented, it's not chaos. Chaos is the flickering of the flame, the swing of currents, the explosion of fire. If Limbo was chaotic, it wouldn't just sit happily in a nice ordered map of the planes, between Ysgard and Pandemonium, would it?
I'll illuminate more clearly shall I?
Law and chaos are subjective: They change all the time depending on Primes' perspectives - different cultures=different beliefs. Thus how can a plane ever claim to embody changing concepts? The two I'm considering are the worst: No morals just abstracts. Take the Parodies of Limbo. Mimir...?
Parody ain't chaotic unless it's defined that way,
...so likewise we have in Mechanus the Formulators. Mimir?...
The same... now lets take some places:-
Rudra's Domain - What is a god of disease doing in Mechanus? Moving that's for sure, his realms' off to Limbo to join Agni, Indra et al. Wait a few cycles and watch it slide.
