Both pseudo Judea and pseudo Phoenicia are really enticing options. I think I have to go with pseudo Phoenicia (D), though, just as a change of pace. We were involved in the administration of a big city last game.

We were a god last game. A prince is basically an extremely lovely version of a god.

Being in a fishing village, having the potential of being able to traverse the entire pseudo-Mediterranean sea, that's something new and different.

It is a short run. It is tough to tell, as a four year old, if he intends to beat her to death or not.
Not to mention, as a four year old we probably don't really have a very detailed understanding of the concept of death in the first place. But it is loud and dad is angry and our uncle is the only one who dad listens to, so H is a rational move from the perspective of a child.

1:

B. Uncle Jorah - An invaluable rolemodel, we spend as much time with him as possible.
H. Alone, swimming in the ocean - Drowning was a life-changing experience for us. We keep coming back, trying to figure out what it means.
A. Father - We're being groomed for succession. We have little choice but to spend time with him.
D. Mom - She's mom. We spend time with her, and enjoy it. For the most part, she replaces the role Jalitha played when we were an infant.
F. Alone along the beach - Fascination with the beach goes hand-in-hand along with fascination with the ocean.
E. Jalitha - We inevitably spend time with Jalitha when around Uncle Jorah. I imagine Father tries to keep us away from her for a long time after the incident, but we bond with her once again, after the thing mentioned in question two.
C. Uncle Pagam - I just don't consider it feasable for us to spend much time with Uncle Pagam after spending so much time learning the inner mysteries of the faith and swimming.
G. Alone in the forest - Nor do I see us really being very fascinated by the forest at all.

2:

L. Yes, to both Ashera and the gods of your people, alongside Jalitha's the sky giant, you believe in them both - Of course we believe in Ashera. Everyone believes in Ashera. And yet Jalitha has impacted our lives in a fascinating way. We definitely don't believe in her god to the same extent as Ashera--- after all, we are the next high priest of Ashera, and our faith in Ashera's predominance is unshakeable. Perhaps we think that her god and our god are the same one, just being spoken of in different ways. We pray to both, but Ashera gets the majority of the offerings.

Yes, let's spend time around the man who regularly beats our best female role model, and drags us kicking and screaming to and from places.
I think a lot of the rationale is less that we'd want to spend time with father and more that we'd be obligated to. Him being the #1 guy on someone's list means that we'd be going out of the way to spend time with him though.

If it really mattered, and you were trying to compile a list like this, it would be most logical to assign first place votes eight points each, second place votes 7 points each, and so on and so forth, and then add them all up and write the list based on total sum of each.
Or 7-6-5 and so on, with the assumption that your final vote gets zero points and the implication that the final ranked activity will be one we ended up basically never doing in the intervening years.

Yo I just want to say, skill powergaming aside, it's going to look really bad if we spend more time with this outsider who tainted us than our own mother. I'm sure our mom is pretty cool too and will pass on more to us than just basketweaving and rope knowledge.

1. B, E, A, H, F, C, D, G
This is the only way I see us getting away with spending lots of time with Jalitha--- essentially treating Uncle Jorah's house as a foster family and more or less living there. Both Jorah and Jalitha would have to come before our parents. It would look somewhat bad, but stranger things have happened, and Jorah is respected amongst the village.

Ask him about afterlife. "What happens to people after they die?"
Heck, I can answer this one. "They are returned to the ocean, and are swallowed up by Ashera, and remain with him for all of time." I assume water burials are a big deal for this culture.

What is the purpose of everyone growing their hair out? I assume we won't have to ask Dad about this; as not having long hair has traumatized us over the last six years, we've probably more than figured out the answer to this by now.

This isn't a vote so much as a request.

Take the religious lessons more seriously
I agree. We can learn more about the other gods when we inevitably abandon this village for more a intellectually stimulating destiny. Until then, let's learn as much as possible with the tools we have at our disposal, and not continue alienate the great font of knowledge we have about Asherah in favor of seeking out tiny scraps of information regarding these sky giants. Act like a model citizen. Learn everything we can. Learn the inner secrets of the priesthood, how to craft a boat, and then slip into the night when we're 20 or something.

DO YOU RE-PRIORITIZE YOUR TIME TO TAKE YOUR FATHERS LESSONS MORE SERIOUSLY? Do you stop running off to go fish with Jorah, swim in the ocean alone and be with Jalitha?
A. Yes.
B. No.
To an extent

We start spending a lot more time with Dad. We never stop swimming in the ocean alone though. We consider it a religious activity.

Option Maxhush is the closest thing to what a tramatized 11 year old would actually do here. He wouldn't try to do some epic poem out of nowhere or some bullshit. He wouldn't suck up to the people who just killed his loving father--- sure, we and dad weren't on the best of terms, but he was still dad. He'd answer the question he was just asked, and be petulent about it.

This falls into the category of telling her to do something instead of asking for more information. Other people, weigh in if you want to do this or not please.
Disagree. We have seen too much and are too worn out to tell anyone to do anything at this juncture. All we want to do is cry and go to sleep right now. Incidentally:

For the record, people who want to retain our spiritual identity, there's no way we get out of this without getting our hair cut. It's just not going to happen.

We might be able to talk our way into keeping our name, though. At least we'd hold on to that.

Question 1: A.
Question 2: A and C. If we can understand Tudiya, with his strange weighty voice, perhaps there is a way for him to understand us. Heck, maybe we can find out how to do that. The ability to be understood by anyone would be really useful. And C, because we need to integrate into this society, and befriending contemporaries is the best way to do that.

Basically I just want us to hang on to Asherah worship a little longer, until we can start espousing a revolutionary doctrine claiming that El is god of the sky, Asherah is god of the sea, and all the other gods we meet along the way are gods of their thing, and all the gods benefit because they'll start being worshipped by everyone a little instead of by a small amount of people a lot.

We grab a spear our giant shark's tooth (we have more experience with spears shark teeth) and stand in front of Jalitha. However, we will also call Danal over to protect him, or to help protect Jalitha as well if he so wishes. We can reverse this and call Jalitha while protecting Danal if he is too frightened to come.
