Are the screamy/pissy options considered a group, as far as counting goes? It seems to me like the J option is the one in the lead, as far as our secondary action goes.

J or H will have to beat out each other and all other votes to win.

J can win if it is a minority, but more than H and pissy-screamy-prayey votes, separately.

H can win if it is a minority, but more than J and pissy-screamy-prayey votes, separately.

They have to be the largest minority to win. Each vote is essentially either panic/fall, remain calm or think this is awesome because you are too young and too delusional to realize you are about to die. Panic/fall will be further nuanced, if it wins.

This update brought to you by Black Sabbath and Greggster(TM).

It is night. You are well over a thousand feet in the air and you are falling. The sky is above you, the forest is below you and Ishamal seems to be trying to wrap his arms and legs around you, giving you the tightest squeeze of your life. So much so in fact, that you are having a bit of trouble breathing.


You are falling to your death.


There is a great rushing of air past your ears as you plummet.

Your muscles convulse and then convulse again as a twitch of the lightning which has entered your body runs it's course.

You are going to hit the ground at immense speed, well, probably the trees at immense speed and die a horrible death. The forest below you is pretty dense. It is even odds if you'll die from hitting the ground or a tree branch. Chunks of you will probably filter down to the ground, eventually, depending on how sturdy the branches you hit are, you could just be scattered among the upper branches of the forest.

But still very dead. Very, very dead.





Ishamal is no longer glowing but if he was, you might see his expression is of slight surprise.

None of this is going through your mind right now. You are living out one of the fantastical stories your mother has been telling you your whole life.

You take a deep breath, as best as you can with Ishamal squeezing you and l and let out one sound, which echoes through the night as you fall to your death.

"WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

You yell out as you plummet. Your last words?

1000 feet.

800 feet.

600 feet.

400 feet.

Those trees are coming up awfully quickly. Ishamal, still gripping you tightly has spun you so that you are facing stomach towards the sky and he will take the blunt of the impact. Not that it will matter at the speed you are going, in the best case scenario you will simply splatter all over his armor.

300 feet

200 feet

You have time to see the tree branches rush by you quickly as you plummet and hear a few snap.

Pain.

Darkness.




































































































































































































































































































































































































You feel cold.






















































You feel wet all over.




































You smell salt.















































































































































































































































































































































































































































































You open your eyes. You seem to be laying on the forest floor. Ishamal is glowing faintly and kneeling over you, he has his hands on your chest, he pushes again. You choke and spit out seawater. He pulls his hands back, but in that touch you felt... something like something you have never felt before, it felt like the best food you have ever tasted, the most exciting smell, the happiest moment of joy and your greatest hopes and dreams.

You feel stiff and very, very tired but are not in pain.

Ishamal stands and motions for you to get up.


You.....

OPTION A: You are tired. He can handle things from here. Pass out.
OPTION B: You can sleep later. Stand up.




You also...

OPTION C: Say nothing, walk with Ishamal back to the others.
OPTION D: Thank Ishamal for saving you.
OPTION E: Thank someone or something else for saving you. Who?
OPTION F: Ask Ishamal something




Lastly, on your way back to camp, do you...

OPTION G: Try to run off and search for the tooth. It fell somewhere away from the camp, in the darkness, but you might be able to find it.
OPTION H: Yeeeeaaaaaah I think I'll pass on the tooth, thanks, I'm good.

Question: What the hell just happened, Ishamal? And in plain terms. I'm tired of cryptic stuff. This whole thing happened because I didn't have enough information. If you don't explain things, I'm going to do something stupid like this again.

OPTION B: You can sleep later. Stand up.
OPTION F: Ask Ishamal something(s)

1. Thank you.
2. I'm sorry.
3. Tooth is evil. Leave in forest?


My vote on the tooth is whatever Ishmael decides. Gonna leave that to the pro hero.

Thank Ishmael, he's tough and probably saved us. Find the tooth. It's a relic from our childhood. It obviously has power that was benign until we summoned it, so let's get it and just be careful. We can revisit its power in the future if we have the inclination, but it's better to have the option than to not.

Don't know about ditching the tooth randomly in the forest, but I want to get back to the camp to see what happened as soon as possible.

Edit: Kill? Save? Who's Mereniel? And who is the creepy guy?

Edit: Found a 'Them' and 'Xuriel' as well. Names sound kinda like angels to me?

Guess he had to punch the last of that Asherah out of us. Let's get back to camp so we can see how our sudden disappearance somehow screwed everyone over.

The only reason I would want to find the tooth is because it is some bad magick, and maybe Ishamal and co. will want to lock that away in a deep dungeon or cave.
