    Playing a small time mobster could be fun I guess, but the political intrigue of the police sounds better.

    E, with B as the second choice.

    Obviously, the first thing we need to do is to assassinate Queen Victoria's physician and the murders will stop. :M

    Right! I'm jumping in.

    All characters are not very immersive so I go the default :obviously: choice

    The :obviously: Tower. We are considering further forays into high politics. This seem to be an intriguing case with high potential for blackmail, coverup, and conspiracy. No stone shall be unturned, I assure you :obviously:

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    A sounds pretty Codexian without being too extreme, so I vote for the Magus.

    I figure A would be the most fun because he will be a dandy impressionistic painter, and he has no skills or OP shit like people to rely on, just the whores he fucks.

    Also, he's not Oscar Wilde, more like one of the pre-Raphaelites probably. Except less of a faggot (depending on how we play him).

    I think it would be better to play a character like the Magus where our interest in the Ripper is purely amateur and artistic, so that we don't come out with OP shit. He also gets an extra turn per day/night cycle to do shit and has a steady income.

    To be fair, it isn't the most suspicious vote we've ever had. Not like that time Roxor wandered into the thread stating openly that he hadn't actually read any of it, but root had told him to vote for the same thing as root. With a little detective work, it was fairly obvious that someone (I don't think we'll ever know who it was) had got to him.

    Here's a Sickert, incidentally. Man loved his nudes on beds.

    Moar Sickert.

    Anyway, grotbro, my concern was that the voter has only one post on the 'Dex, and it's in this thread. With none of the usual introduction new LP posters write.

    Anyway, A should win because Sickert is great.

    I'm thinking C at the moment. Tom Wise sounds the most likeable of any of the characters really and I like his background.

    I also like the sound of E, as I like the sound of directing the "macro" strategy of the police. And, as said, we can't really do much worse than in real life :D

    B, The Emperor also sounds quite fun, and looks like the character we are most likely to succeed with.

    So a vote for all three I guess!

    @grotsnik:

    Morrissey - Jack the Ripper

    Some musical inspiration for your writing (I'll always have Morrissey handy for any situation).

    Watched some discovery show where author Patricia Cornwall examined the ripper and proclaimed that Sickert was the ripper. What i remember was that she suggested that Sickert had a deformed cock and was unable to perform sexually, which gave birth to a hatred of women.

    She also suggested that the above painting of the woman was evidence of his complicity, either serving as inspiration or a memento (can't remember which).

    While i don't put much stock in it, it adds to the unending mythos of Jack the Ripper.

    TBH I made that alt for the space sim game, not to change votes. It just seemed convenient to use now. :lol:
