”Where your place is…” Khonsu repeated the question, his gaze going between Thoth and the board. He needed to focus on the game, not on this….banter. But was that perhaps part of the game that Thoth was playing? This time, all this time, was he attempting to draw focus away from the board? And here Khonsu had been attempting to rile the other up...but he had been using that to his advantage. Clever God.

”It is not to wear this light of mine, surely.” he muttered, though whether or not that was true had yet to be seen. At least the other deity hadn’t noticed his plan; he had responded in kind to Khonsu’s move, and Khonsu in turn drew another piece forward, starting to form the fringes of his barricade against what strange chaos Thoth thought to win with. He would need to be quicker of the mind if he was to win this game.

In the background, the Moon Rabbit watched with a twinkle in his eye, a small flask in his hand - whence retrieved neither player surely knew, but he took a quick sip from its contents as he chuckled to himself. Clearly the hare had spotted something in this game.

It was becoming clear that Khonsu was growing far more focused on the game than their conversation. To some degree, that was good as it meant that the other deity was likely beginning to take the game a bit more seriously. That, or he was starting to become a bit befuddled. Either suited the God of Knowledge well enough. He should only hope to know how quick the lunar deity managed to react. It would be quite poor if it took him too long to realize the plot that was being used against him.

On the other hand, their competition might become far more interesting if it resulted with Khonsu being a bit more sour. People always did enjoy grand tales and it would likely be far more suiting if they ended up playing more than one game, if only to settle Thoth's point. Though, knowing the way people often worked their game would likely end up exaggerated no matter who won or how it played out.

"Such is something that is undoubtedly to be left to Ma'at," he said lightly, kindly responding in kind to Khonsu's move. Thus far, it appeared that the other deity had not noticed his plan. He should hope it went on long enough to be beneficial to himself.

His gaze briefly drifted to the Moon Rabbit, a mild look of amusement crossing his face as he noticed the expression on the hare's face. Hm, it appeared that not everybody was unaware. How delightful.

What's a god to a non-believer?

Left to Ma’at….that was fair enough, though it did seem as though their conversation had come to an end. There was little he could say to those words, and he found he hardly wanted to. There was something strange about the atmosphere - charged, as though the game was taking a turn, but he couldn’t see precisely why; as far as he could tell, the God was, as of yet, acting in some strange way as though to evade Khonsu’s trap, but certainly not with any visible strategy. He couldn’t see how Thoth thought he would win this battle the way he was play--

At least, not until that last move, just now. That particular move…

He had seen a strategy like it once before. Only he had discovered it several moves in advance, and had been able to defend and defeat his foe. This….why hadn’t he noticed until now? Was it their conversation? His own annoyance at the challenge to begin with? Thoth’s strategy….he could still win, he could still beat it, surely…

”I see you play a conniving game, sir.” he breathed, assessing his options. He could go for the offensive in an attempt to thwart Thoth before his plan could be made victorious...but that was a risky game. If he only defended, though, he knew he would lose. Offense was his only option. He made his move, aiming to take one of the straggling pieces for himself. ”A trickster you are after all.”

The conversation dwindled into nonexistence as Khonsu focused on the game. Instead of focusing upon the game, Thoth turned his attention to his opponent. It was clear that the lunar deity was confused on many aspects, far more hesitant to move this time around. No doubt the prideful deity was considering how the game had come to this point. Considering what he knew his brother-in-law to be like, he no doubt thought that the God of Wisdom had delved into trickery with magic not at his disposal and a watchful eye upon him.

Amusingly enough, it appeared as though he was not far off. He did have to wonder how the lunar deity would react if Thoth had merely used strategy, less taking advantage of the other deity's weaknesses and merely relying upon his own strengths. Perhaps he would not believe him. After all, people often forgot how intelligent the deity was, no doubt because they forgot how old he was. Unpleasant as he could be, pride was a vice he did attempt to avoid.

"A trickster?" he echoed, looking quite amused, "I'm afraid I have told you nothing but the truth." But then, he supposed that the claim was not too far off. After all, it was in the nature of tricksters to place the truth in plain sight, always taunting and for the sake of the game. Thoth might not be known for being a trickster, but it was no lie that he did enjoy such a scheme.

He gazed to the board, lips quirking upwards slightly. With his plan set in motion, he moved forward not in defense but offense.
