1.B, D, E, C, F, A, H, G

2.A We've seen "the grandchildren of Asherah and the children of Asherah's gentle daughter, Ninveh" when out in the boats, so I don't see why we wouldn't believe it.

Best option seems to be C.

This way we're not picking any sides, and the winners of the fight can come find us after they're done killing eachother.

I don't understand the votes for Lanky's plan. If we get anywhere near Jalitha, the outsiders (or her) are going to grab us and not let go. We're 11 so we're not going to fight them off. If she's our mother she isn't going to leave without us, whether we want to go or not. Right now there are more of them than there are men in our village so they just have to grab us and run. If you want to stay in the village, this is a pretty bad plan.

Okay... if we're going to start assuming what these stranger will do why assume that they're just going to grab us and run? They look to be trying to talk and give things in a friendly manner and they clearly recognize that everyone is on edge, so their leader would likely realize that just grabbing us would result in a fight and probably a few deaths. I think that the votes for Lanky's plan are cropping up because it might just diffuse the situation a little rather than result in the wounding or deaths of everyone involved.

Probably because the sobbing slave woman who speaks their language just told them that we're her son and everyone else aew cannibals and she wants to be rescued? I'd guess they're more likely to believe her than anyone else. Even if we do walk up and say "HEY WE'RE STAYING", why would they even care? We're some 11 year old primitive cannibal kid. We're not a god, or a leader, or even an adult. They have absolutely no reason to care about what we want.

You yell out in your native tongue "Wait! Calm do-" as the empty handed man grabs you, as he is very much within grabbing distance and pulls you behind him. Jalitha hugs you "Og! El has answered our prayers... don't look!"



Voting for A. If we try to grab the tooth they might think we're going for a weapon and lop our head off too. Lets just get out of this place and go see the big city.

Say:

El is the leader of the sky-giants, king and father of them all, who rules the world. His spear is Smattas, whom thunders when he fights. Another is Maranal, who blesses Smattas with lightning and heals the sick. Labaras was a giant of the land, who founded the Big Village Baitel; his children founded other places, such as Zepath.

The giants never fight, for they all serve El. They may trick one another, but never truly engage in conflict. The world contains monsters, that El and his giants protect us from, as you have protected my mother and I on this day from the demon that had been worshiped.

When in danger, ask El to save you, and he shall.

All of this, but with less detail and in an 11 year old's vocabulary. I doubt we'd be too well-spoken so soon after what happened in the village.

EDIT: Gotta go with the rhyming one down below instead.

Can we change our name from Og to Otac? That sounds like a pretty cool name for some reason and feels like it relates to all that time we spent in the water with fish, but I'm not sure why.

1: A. We've never had a friend before! Can't brush off the first kid to ever want to hang out with us.

G + Z Perfect the art of stylish falling. Become the best at falling that has ever existed or ever will exist, or even could possibly exist. Become better at falling than anything that couldn't exist too, for good measure. Transcend all known forms of falling and truly become One with falling. Fall so perfectly and beautifully that the eternal void becomes a paradise.

I just want to vote for whatever fairly ends our deal with Indor on good terms. The sooner that ends, the better.

Sogol posted:

You know, an interesting option with Gaddiel would be to give him to Paebel as a bonus.

And the rest of our adventuring party won't think this is unfair? They'll probably wonder why we're giving one person such a valuable bonus when the rest of them aren't getting one, for a reason we won't explain.

It's a suggestion that gives us some measure of plausible deniability, so that our life won't be completely ruined by one misstep.

It's also a suggestion that means not paying any of our adventuring crew. They probably wouldn't be very happy about that.

Let's just tell Tudiya and face the music. Maybe use some of our sterling rhetorical skills we trained all those years. Then we don't need some complicated bullshit plan. If we get banished...guess what! We get to go off on the adventure that we've always dreamed of. Does this have zero appeal to people?

Honestly this is sounding better and better by the day. We're starting to get important enough in Zepath that we have to consider the politics of the place, and gently caress Politics. I want adventures!

EDIT: You know what, all this sneaky stuff is dumb as hell. Voting Confess to Tudiya. Either we confess and take the consequences with a shred of dignity like a decent person, or we wait until Tudiya finds out and calls us on it anyway. And he will find out. This guy is hundreds of years older than us. We are NOT smarter than him.

We have three options here, really.
1: Confess, explain our reasoning, and hope that Tudiya at least gives us some slack for coming clean and wanting to help the poor.
2: Keep it secret, stop trading with Indor, and hope Tudiya doesn't mind read anyone involved. Tudiya will be Very Upset with us for keeping secrets like this from him. No way he'll ever trust us again after this.
3: Keep it secret, keep trading with Indor, and be absolutely hosed when Tudiya finds out we've been actively lying to him.

EDIT: IRC has been debating on this for the last few hours.

Tomn posted:

Whatever the case, we probably don't have to worry too much about mind-reading unless matters get so drastic Tudiya feels compelled to act immediately and decisively instead of loving around with roundabout honey-traps.

(Remember, Tudiya's form of investigation here is to wait and see who tries to take the minotaur bits just lying around for free. He's simply relying on finding out who is greedy enough to do such a thing, assuming that this will lead him to the person greedy enough to sell to Indor. This is SERIOUSLY a shot in the dark, from an investigative perspective.)

If you're betting everything on Tudiya not finding out, then I really hope you're voting to stop trading with Indor. He's going with a simple route for investigating now, but if she keeps getting "mysteriously" supplied, he's going to step up his investigating.

If we confess now, he is going to be really upset at us. If we keep it a secret and he finds out, he is going to be waaaay more angry at us. But maybe you're right, and we, the teenage boy, are smarter than the man who has lived for several hundred years and runs a city, and we've got nothing to worry about.

It still doesn't make any sense to bring Puabi on THIS specific mission. We're supposed to track the minotaurs and then come right back home. Where does "Stop to let Puabi scavenge parts" factor into this? Maybe bring her on the next mission or something, but it makes no sense this time.
