Default 419

Blessings from Jesus be to you, wise and mighty sky-people.

I am Olo'eyktan of the Naytsėria clan. As you know, after some initial unfortunate hostilities the Naytsėria have become more enthusiastic about your presence here than any other Na'vi people, and I myself am now a devout Christian. I work tirelessly to spread the word of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is an unparalleled pleasure to be speaking to such intelligent and respectful people such as yourselves. We Na'vi people talk of being able to see a person spiritually. After some careful study, I believe I can see you spiritually! It was for this reason that I ended the conflict between us. I have learned much from your many fine activities here on this world and can now think and act in much the same way as a skyperson does, a fact of which you will soon become acutely aware.

Allow me to explain my position. Upon becoming Olo'eyktan I acquired control of a huge area of land to the north. I am seeking to give to you this huge land. I have been assured by God that the ground there is rich in the mineral you seek, and you will experience no violence from any of the clans upon relocation.

All I ask from you in return are two very small favours
Firstly, I request that before leaving you return your current location, 'Hell's Gate' and the neighbouring 'mines' to a cleaner state. This is a minor issue but it must be completed in order for my tribal peers to agree to the deal.

Secondly, I request that you transfer all of the warrior skypeople to a base in this new land, one immediately adjacent the mountain we refer to as 'fierydeathfromabove'. Do not be alarmed at this old title! I assure you that it is purely historical and ceremonial and it is mere coincidence that there are no Na'vi people living less than five days walking distance from the mountain.

Jesus be with you.

Your faithful servant, Olo'eyktan of the Naytsėria clan.

Urmm...

Not that I want to kill the story, but what about Eywa? And the Na'vi worshipping a human religious figure?

I'm not entirely sure that they do

...The Na'vi aren't Christian. At all. They have their OWN religion and spirituality that is entirely unconnected with any Earth-based religion. Not to mention that canonically, the only Christian they at all interact with is Trudy, and she doesn't exactly strike me as the converting type.

I. Yeah. No offence, but this doesn't make that much sense.

They're just pretending...

I only put in the Christian stuff to make it seem more like a real 419. Feel free to come with your own rationalizations as to how this Na'vi clan could have become aware of the existence of an Earth religion and used it as part of their skyperson inspired deception.

Ah. That was not made clear - I had no idea what a 419 WAS until you edited your reply to link to it. Also, I can't really see the Na'vi USING another religion to deceive, sorry.

Initially I had the Naytsėria (Nigeria) clan leader talking like Norm does when he first meets Grace "May the Great Mother smile upon our first meeting..." but it just seemed wrong for him to use Eywa in that way. Plus I really wanted to make it clear that this deception was not natural Na'vi behaviour and was human inspired.

This isn't the first 419 joke, Mass Effect 2 actually had one in game.
that said, the religious parts... yeah, I don't like
Other than that, kind of funny.
