The last CYOA taught us an important message.

Monster's aren't the actually monsters. GODS are the real monsters.

Even if this is stuck in the game room you still had one hell of a good run on GBS.

One compromise that comes to mind would be keeping it in GBS for a week or so before moving it here. Not ideal of course, and you'd want to include a few notices about the move before it happened.

I know just how 4 year old us should handle it.

This is obviously a patriarch and we're already on our way to being an outcast. We can't afford to make visiting Jalitha in our top five.

We've heard from the fishgod, seen his children, been blessed by his benevolence and those of the other gods. Has the skygod ever manifested himself around us? Is Skygod jealous of the other gods?

At best he is friends with Jalitha but her actions made us an outcast!

Clearly Ashera is real, but did he save us from being defiled? If those sky giants aren't real how did we get defiled in the first place... And why doesn't dad just laugh it off when we pray to them... Granted Dad may never laugh at anything.

Counterpoint: Did Skygod save Jalitha from getting severely beaten by one of Ashera's high priests?

This is an ancient fishing village. Denouncing a key part of our faith will have grave consequences. We're also the son of a high priest. We're expected to assume the position of high priest in the worship of Ashera and the true gods. And they are true gods: we've seen the children of Ashera and received blessings from them. But we haven't seen any signs of the Skygod or the Skygiants.

The only person we know of who believes in the Skygod is Jalithat. She meant to earn the favor of Skygod by cutting our hair but that blasphemous act left us a disfigured outcast. The Skygod certainly didn't help her carry out the act done in his name. He definitely didn't intervene whenever she was beaten.

Jalitha is a good person but she is also mistaken. We will pay dearly if we make those same mistakes.

You know what? That's actually good news for the village. Ancient sea-cultures knew about tsunamis and were aware that giant receding tides = about to get swamped.

Changing my vote to DON'T KILL ANYONE

Also:

[18:53] <somerandompaui> "Yes, the sky giants give you shiny metal arms but the fish god gives you lightning powers."
[18:54] <maxhush> well, if there were turtle gods maybe people wouldnt be jumping on the traitorwagon, lol
[18:54] <somerandompaui> "So your got just makes you a lightning rod"
[18:54] <Reign> yeah what sort of loving sky gods let their enemies toss lightening around
[18:54] <Reign> thats Their poo poo
[18:54] <Reign> obviously the sky giants are incompetent
[18:54] <ADarkerPorpoise> Spare the lightning rod spoil the child with lightning powers
[18:54] <maxhush> this is conclusive that jalithas stories about lightning are wrong, and our dads oneswere right

These assholes came into our village, fed our dad poison, and then beheaded him.

They beheaded our dad! The dude who protects the village, and Jorah, and Pagam, and Mom, and everyone we have ever known and loved (except Jalitha) from the wrath of Asherah. They just straight up killed him. We didn't come to them, they came to us.

I can't emphasize this enough

With our dad dead the village has become our responsibility.

That said, if there's a tsunami on the way we'll still need to GTFO. Our people probably know to do that too.

No to take the tooth with us. Dad will be SO pissed at us taking it if he's only temporarily dead
