Perfectly logical poster who uses the tools available to him to come to solid conclusions



G: We should shout "HELP!" while pointing towards home.

It's quick, to the the point, and impossible to misunderstand or screw up. It will also make Uncle MOVE. Once he starts heading towards the village he'll see what's going on and be able to take care of things well enough.

Besides, 'help' is also ambiguous enough that we won't be seen as actively helping or condemning Jalitha later on.

A. We are four and we've been dealt a blow we consider as serious as losing a limb, our Dad is yelling about how we are defiled and is now beating our Sister/Mother figure to death, we were 2 seconds away from being crushed to death, and now someone else is yelling at us. Staying in character!

I am changing my vote from G to A

ADP brings up a great point. As much as I'd like our character to take the moral highground and tell his Uncle that dad is beating up a slave, realistically we can't expect much out of our 4 year old self. We just dodged death and defilement - that earns us a few tears.

I disagree: we're a hero, we should try to be effective, even if that's a little unrealistic. It doesn't stretch credulity too much for us to choke out two words, though.

If it's too out of character we'll just end up bawling anyway, might as well try for some self-improvement.

Voting A - what the hell, why is a four year old acting like a 25 year old goon?

Seriously, we might as well have our four year old invent the printing press and steel.

G, to get him over there as fast as possible. In-character, we managed to hold it together long enough to find our uncle, I think we can get out a "Save Jalitha" and point before we turn into a complete wreck.

If [G] fails it's just gonna break down to us becoming a sobbering twitching mess like in the [A] vote but why fight for that? If we picked this choice why buckle now? Just like with the staff and mirrors that didn't get used last game, we're right in front of the power we wanted, use it!

Use child time to have our imaginary friend an alligator named Kebes council us as to why being a big cry baby isn't helpful or constructive at all.

I am acknowledging your question! It is an excellent question! I am intentionally not answering it! Read my refusal to answer as a confirmation or a denial to your question, however you so may choose!

I am starting on the update now and barring any last minute swing votes to change the results, expect it up in about an hour. I encourage anyone who has not voted to do so and anyone who wants to change their votes, up through the last minute is welcome to do so.

B I realize I am a four year old;

But strategerizing this; it will at first make uncle think that Papa IS hurt, but then when he sees the situation he will realize it means Papa is hurting others and probably make uncle madder than he would be with any of those other options.
