Great idea to ask to "gather thoughts" while the NPC is speaking to us!
Btw, tried it three times because I wanted to know your answer but I'm definitly too slow for the 3rd level
Thank you! It's def a small time limit, here's the blurb that shows up:
"Fuck that, I'm sick of being a coward. Staying quiet lets assholes keep spouting their shitty opinions, so calling them out is the only way to let them know their behavior is unacceptable. It pisses me off how quiet I was, but I'm changing now."
