    E. The strange young man she had seen yesterday, hunched in a corner of the hall all by himself and polishing his glasses. He did not seem comfortable with the banquet, and Inanna could slightly empathize with him.

    B.

    Inanna is Lady Ramsesphilios' person, so let's have them in higher priority than weird loner types.

    I think you meant B, Kipeci. C is the diplomat.

    Going with B for now, though I'm not sure if we might be committing some sort of faux-pas by casually strolling up to a bunch of V.I.P's as a commoner. Still I think your logic holds.

    B

    I agree, Lady Ramsesphilios is the only reason we haven't been fired or raped yet, so she's definitely priority number one. Our job is to serve the guests, though, and I don't think she needs us buzzing around.
    Didn't you mean to vote for B, by the way? C is chatting with Minister Zhang.

    Should have been a bit more careful there, thanks. :oops:

    I don't mean to try to hide under her skirts the whole night, I just think that she, her husband and their associates deserve a bit of special attention such as the first pick of their food before we go chasing after lone people. They seem to have the greatest number of guests around them, and by Inanna's estimation they look pretty important.

    I don't think it would generate a faux pas, since we're casually strolling up to them less as a commoner and more as a mobile platform for delicious biscuit rolls. Unless she can't keep her trap shut after hearing something, I guess. Talking to uptight nobles without first being addressed would probably be pretty bad.

    Sup Jing, what you doing here? I think your dimension is a bit to the left.
    It is not time for the Epic/Legend Crossover yet, come back a few centuries later when the Great Dreamer awakes.

    Assuming this ins't actually Shulgi.
    When in doubt, everyone is Shulgi.

    Shinnoseki, I missed you so much.
    The real question is, who is Theseus?

    I'm torn between talking to the lonely guests or just strolling through groups and trying to hear something important. The men in options D and E might not be alone later but I don't think our character has much conversational topics to discuss at this point. But then again our character isn't paying attention to what groups are discussing so going that route might not be that good either.

    D. I want to know what's his secret to staying slim.

    Current tally:

    A - 3
    B - 2

    E - 2

    I'll check back in about 12 hours.

    Our boss would be B?

    Switching to D, with the caveat to flop to any other option in case of a tie.

    Edit: If there is a tie between 3 options, then D>A>B in that order.

    Let's see if I got this right...

    Current tally:

    A - 4
    B - 3
    C - 1
    D - 4
    E - 1

    I'll exercise Nevill's option to flop after about 8 hours and proceed to update (meaning an A victory), if there are no changes.

    A will lead to a victory for attending to Vitruvius Camna first. If you flop to B with haste assuming Nevill's flop still holds that will result in us seeing to Lord and Lady Ramsesphilios and their guests, our actual bosses. Which are you angling for?

    Bro, I think you meant D. That's the slim young Easterner with the eye patch.

    Whoops, forgot to close the votes. But I suppose it's D instead of A?

    Well, if BroZil meant D, that'd place D at 5, B at 4, and A at 3, and I would have no reason to flop anywhere.
