I am changing my vote from G to A

ADP brings up a great point. As much as I'd like our character to take the moral highground and tell his Uncle that dad is beating up a slave, realistically we can't expect much out of our 4 year old self. We just dodged death and defilement - that earns us a few tears.

If it's too out of character we'll just end up bawling anyway, might as well try for some self-improvement.

E. Let dad handle it for now, we can get her if we need a translator. Its possible the visitors speak our language, we haven't heard what they're saying yet.

They're also much better armed, so we don't need to make any sudden moves.

Thank you for catching that, but I think your meter's a touch off. If we're including Marnal, I'd suggest:

Marnal forges bolts of flame,
Heals the harmed and lifts the lame.

For those saying that we're too young to come up with an awesome poem, who cares? If Dio decides that we can't pull it off then we'll end up using something we're capable of, but I think personal development is the name of the game right now. We need to strive for greatness if we're going to participate in a "Clash of the Heavens", and I think hanging around a well-traveled badass warrior king will get us there much more effectively than running back and hoping the Dad who beat us our entire lives is going to come back from the dead and somehow provide us with something better than the experience we have to opportunity to get here.

Sticking with my vote for Tudhalias

Yeah, hell no, we're not backing off this insolent poo poo thing. Worst case scenario we get a cool scar. Part of the epic journey. Voting Plan Sassmouth!

We already have a scar. If we keep acting like a moron the next one is going to be across the jugular, which I'm pretty sure isn't the kind that the ladies are into.

Even if we were to survive, how does it develop us as a character? You were an insolent little poo poo toward the most powerful being you've ever encountered before (dad) and you were constantly beaten for it. Now you've encountered someone who is empirically more powerful, as he killed your dad, and you're going to be a smarmy little rear end to him too? What makes you think the results will be any different?

Act like we have an iota of social intelligence and the king will help us out. Be a smart-rear end little snot and he won't. And for those voting to burst into tears, you must have been the whiniest bunch of 11 year olds. I don't want our defining characteristic to be that we start bawling all the time.

I just realized something. Jalitha tried to give us a haircut. This would definitely ostracise Og, but Og could have been canabalized for it. WTF mom!


That is if they consider a haircut a canabalizing offense, which may be true, as no one else had short hair.

Its possible that she tried to give us a haircut so El would save us from the cannibalistic barbarians we were living with.

A, A+C. It's always good to have friends, and the king might be able to communicate with us. The kid might help us learn words by naming the flowers and things we come across.

I don't think we'd be able to communicate very well with any of the other outsiders, and I imagine we'll have access to mom most of the time, so we can branch out here and talk to new people.

If you asked a question that I skipped, it was because someone else already asked and it was answered.. Or I missed it by mistake. if I did, please point it out, thanks!

"He says that men who wish to have them and that they well regarded."

You ask the question. Tudiya laughs and points to the child you have been carrying on your shoulders for the better part of an hour as you talk to the king and whom you have been otherwise playing with for several hours as you walked. Danal makes a monster noise and swooshes his stick through the air as if he was slaying another invisible monster.

Tudiya is the largest man you've ever seen... and based on Danal's actions so far, you may need to adjust your estimation of his age once again. He might be five or six?

"He says that people, Sweetling" your mother says.

See? If the king's son has a dog, I think it's appropriate for us to have a dog.

Beaky is the best name for any sidekick we have, up to and including other people.

Wake Barkof

Regardless of Danal's physical size, his maturity clearly reflects his actual age (~5 years old). Encouraging the king's 5-year-old son to venture off into danger is incredibly irresponsible, and at 11 we'll probably be expected to know that.

Unless infant adventuring is a normal Labarasian stage of development or something.

I like this. Voting wake barkoff, but try to do it in a way that doesn't make our new friend feel betrayed. Act like we want him in the game or something.

I think the best plan is to put on the sandals (we can run faster and farther I'd we don't get fatigued), grab the unbreakable spines as a weapon, and book it into the forest.

Edit: I firmly agree with anything Terry Pratchet says. Don't look back when running, it will just slow us down.

Try to salvage some seeds from the fruit and plant them once the fire dies. If the seeds are not salvageable, then forget it.

To add to this, we can get seeds before burning the forest, and plant them in the ashes. They should grow very quickly with all that fertilizer and I think that'd be a good compromise.

This sounds like the kinds of magic that has almost gotten us killed several times in the past. We need to slow down and not use it until we're better trained. We still have an archery contest to win, no sense in passing out before then.

Actually, vote change to D(E?) - Pour on the gas but take the next turnoff to the food stalls, specifically because it'll probably gently caress off Lullaya even more- 'letting' him win so he won't be able to definitively prove that he would have won had we kept running, showing him that we see food being more important than him etc.

Then skip the spear throwing contest and eat right up until archery time.

I can get behind this. Just run right to the next food stall and get ready for the archery.
