gBs!

I think we should stick to our strengths; bringing everything down around our ears. Lets start with a world we can watch burn, and I think we're up to the hard mode challenge of starting mortal.

First things first, we'll have no chance without a loyal and unbiased adviser so... steal an animal and paint it purple.

I'd also vote for a return to GBS, if the mods care at all about our opinions.

I never would have found the first game here, and wouldn't have found THIS one if it wasn't linked in the MadGod thread.

As for the girl thing, I am aware of many historical/biblical women who made a difference, I was just saying that with no knowledge of the setting yet I didn't know if that could be the case.

Name one influential woman from the last game... Except Amytis (or, arguably, Beaky!)

Not arguing for or against anything, but I think one of the reasons it didn't turn into a vicarious sexual fantasy like most of the other CYOA's (Robosex comes to mind) is because LBTR didn't have many opportunities for awkward sexual potential and female objectation.

I am not against creating a harem of homunculi and starting an angels only brothel.

Wow, go out of town for 4 days and there's a 550 post backlog to read through.

I'm forwarding the notion that we shave our head at the first appropriate moment. ie not now, later when we're old enough to run away.

Also yes, start making up jokes.

Option C, but then walk up the the hands outstretched guy and say "Hello, me Og, peace, yes?" in his language, then point at the monsters "What is that things?". Offer to shake his hand if it seems appropriate.

Um, read between the lines here guys.

Pretty sure our people are cannibals, and during the solstice ritual some unlucky boys get eaten, probably by other boys. And also pretty sure we're Jalitha's son, or at least not totally pure blood like the res of the village (as evidenced by our looking different, and also references to Enkidu). Why would she want to save us? Unless she thinks something bad is going to happen to us.

Voting A. Lets ditch this no horse popsicle stand and go find our own people, preferably people who don't worship teeth and blood and eat little boys.

A STORM IS COMING

Our people are a bunch of backwards troglodytes led by an unstable shithead. The other guys seem pretty chill and have monsters that sprout clay urns full of poison and can drink poison and like it. Is there a contest here?

Edit: Did Jalitha wash up on a wave of water or jizz? If it was the later we can assume Asherah may have had a part.

It is time to cry and cheese it for the beach! Our dad may have been a hard man to deal with, but he was still our father and we had become more emotionally invested with him in these last few weeks. It seems our father was at peace with his decision (or at least as at peace as a guy can be while shooting lightning while getting speared) due to his meditating on the beach beforehand. He knew what was going to happen, and I wager that the prophecy doesn't involve his only son running off with the people who just murdered him.

If he knew what was going to happen then anything we do right now will be part of his plan. I mean if he could see this far into the future surly he could see another few minutes and know what his son was going to do.

Edit: Unless his plan was to get poisoned by outsiders, fail to kill any of them with actual lightning and then be beheaded. If that was his plan he's either a poo poo fortune teller or terrible strategist. Either way we're either better off without him and his prophesy.

I really doubt it was poison, probably just wine. Dio has said our village has no knowledge of alcohol.

Yeah, we're 11. I think we should phrase it like we're a slightly traumatized kid trying to be sassy. Not changing the vote, but we should phrase it like a question. As in 'Well, this could make sense, what's your response to that Mr. King?' Rather than coming across like we actually think our dad was El.

I interpreted it as more of a immature theoretical, theological argument showing we don't know anything more than a challenge or factual statment.

Also theglavwen's version of E, and.... "I want to go on adventures... but Asherah's going to be really angry with you if he finds out you've eaten whales."

Two questions for our new old friend:

"What did it feel like when you killed someone the first time? Was it right?"

and ask him a riddle to see if he really is wise:

Q: "If Asherah has three fish, and you take one fish, and a crab takes one fish, and a whale takes one fish, what does Asherah eat?"

A:"Three fish, a crab, a whale and you! Asherah eats everything, hah!"

If someone scolds us state that it's true, and anyway we're many many distances from the ocean it's not like he's going to swim up through the dirt. Then look nervously at the dirt.

How is standing your ground the lowest possible risk? It is certainly lower risk than charging at the monster but it's much more risky than hiding with the women. It's a decent amount of risk.
