I like the idea of playing a woman, but only if we live in a society where we would actually have the ability to haven some impact. So..... Probably should be a dude.

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!)

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.

Good answers. I vote with the above.

Yes on prioritizing, however I would like to take time away from playing alone and hanging out with Jalitha. I think fishing with Jorah and hanging out with the other uncle are important too. With no friends, we need to learn how to behave from our father and uncles - instead of being antisocial. We love Jalitha, but her filling our head with weird tales takes time away from learning about our Gods.

I don't know where you are getting the idea that Dad raped Jalitha from. If I remember correctly (and I could be wrong!) we were born 6 months after Jalitha arrived. That means that we are either own mother & fathers son, or Jalitha's son she was pregnant with when she arrived.

The latter makes more sense because again, I think I remember it saying that Jalitha wetnursed us. Women don't just make milk on command, they need to be pregnant/have a baby to make that happen.

I'm on my phone and can't fact check Diog's posts now, but with my belief that she is our mother I will Vote A with the caveat that I beg for the village (or at lease mom and the uncles) be spared the wrath of these strangers.

Maybe we could modify it a bit to be slightly less inflammatory? While I guess that was the point, that was a pretty blatant hint that maybe our current plan isn't an entirely bright idea.

If we are gonna go this route, maybe this would be slightly better:

[Then burst into tears]
Basically, instead of being a smarmy rear end in a top hat, we are instead a confused, traumatized 11 year old trying to make sense of what just happened.

I know it's not as sassy and amusing as the original, but it's slightly less likely to get us killed, too

Change my vote from Maxhush to this.

I had read the previous as confused little boy, not sassy, insolent smart mouth.

But if the votes end up going with it anyways, maybe the king will admire our feisty spirit? [/hope]
