    Exactly.

    Sarah has wronged us and used us worse than Kraka ever did, yet she still remains an 'ally' we keep turning to. I find that a little weird.

    Which is why I am a proponent of securing Freyanna first and dealing with Kraka later if she is involved at all.

    Nah. That still leaves his death up to chance. Unless there is an effort to colonize North Vinland (which I am pretty sure there isn't - for now), it's just being vindictive. A firing squad - after a quick trial - is much cleaner.

    The goal here is to make everyone aware of the fact that no such deed will be worth it in the end.

    Also, Siberia is a beautiful place. ;)

    If we leave the tribals to defend the city, will we also leave a contingent of our own forces to supervise them?

    I am tempted to go 1A or even 1C (hoping to utilize our superior medicine to mitigate heavy casualties), but I can't help but think that we need a good mix of fresh bodies and experienced soldiers to be fully effective.

    The rookies will learn fast if there will be veteran soldiers around to get them through the first few battles.

    In her mind? It wasn't in the data we recovered?

    I was wondering if she hadn't outlived her usefulness.

    That goes without saying. Taking Smaragdur is of extreme strategical importance, you can't just trust it to a bunch of rookies who were only issued their rifles yesterday. We will need our best forces for it.

    How big is the language problem, anyway? How many of our people know Wyandot?

    Military language isn't very rich from a literary standpoint, and if all else fails, there is a good all 'do as I do'. Our people seem to be big on leading by example.

    Alright, fine. 1A it is.

    Incidentally, how different are Wyandot from us? What would be major problems with granting them citizenship after the war and eventually integrating them into our society and thus recouperating our losses?

    Hmph. If they are good enough to hold a rifle they are good enough to slave away at our factories. :rpgcodex:

    But yeah, it kind of does. Ok, meatshields they are, then. :salute:

    A Though I would prefer to hold the line a bit so as NOT to "rush" the Wyandot's training.

    Why are we making our revenge on the priest personal? And where is the promised option to send him to Northern Vinland? :) Not that I would vote for it.

    I don't want to fight the security if we can avoid it, and I kind of want to know what is happening here before I commit to murder. It would also be nice to prioritize Freyjanna's safety over the death of the Violet Elf. The former is why we came here, the latter is just a bonus.

    Hell, we don't even know if Freyjanna or Kraka are really inside. All we have is Sarah's word, and saying that she is not the most trustworthy individual would be an understatement of a century.

    How can we enter the mansion as Freyjanna if we don't know where she is or what happened to her?

    And if Sarah was right that we don't want to know what is going on there, how much SAN damage would we take upon waking up?

    Unless we intend to spend 3 weeks searching the mansion, what time is he talking about?

    What happens if she is drugged or gets drugged the moment we 'slip in'? Then we will have no consciousness to transfer. Or am I wrong about the mechanics?

    What if she is tied up and we are already on our way?

    It does not necessarily solve our problem.

    Ah, but I meant waking up in the middle of an orgy or something worse. Really, that is bad for our mental health, even after all the abuse we have suffered so far.

    If something happened to Freyjanna, it is better that she does not remember it. Even if Angartyr would, we know the memories of experiences in another body are dulled during a transfer.

    Just saying, I don't want to get back to being crazy (Frey was becoming pretty unhinged the more we were in control of her, I am relieved to be back to Angy, maybe we will get raped less that way).

    Yeah, well, Angy should have thought about that before taking a good part of the month off to escort Wyandot forces. Does not make sense to be stingy now.

    Hm. And now I am tempted to flop, if only not to alert the guards.

    Still would not sail away until this matter is over.

    Both Kraka and Sarah are chronic liars. I do not remember, was there even a single instance of them telling us the full truth upfront?

    That said, I can't say I am very surprised by the accusations Kraka raised against our 'allies'. It would be perfectly in their nature to do something like that, though I doubt the situation is exactly as the Violet Elf describes it.

    As long as they remain locked in their struggle, they are going to dig up dirt on each other and present it to us in hopes of recruiting us to their cause, which is just fine as long as we don't conduct ourselves as a bloody simpleton. Seriously, how long will we continue to take the words of others - least of all, some undead abominations - at face value?

    Kraka gave us a lead and we should pursue it. At the very least it should lead us to the outlet through which our technology leaks. Puppet or not, they need to be stopped. And if there is a bigger conspiracy behind that, well, bonus points for us.

    I still don't know what were we thinking by granting Isaac immortality. Who wants to bet that if the conspiracy is real, he is one of the main pieces in their scheme? Ah, well.

    Cassidy, who is our current spymaster? We should first and foremost check if they aren't implicated in this business. It will either make it clear how boned we are, or make it easier to come up with counter-measures.

    A - Give the Scandinavians the military tech. Without due foundation, it is going to be a relic of the past is a few decades, and it's not like we can stop the spread of tech now that even tribals can get artillery.
    B? - Naturally, follow the lead we have. Though if Freyjanna gets seen, will it not give our deal with Kraka (or at least the fact that we've had our conversation) away? Maybe it would be more inconspicuous to do this as Angartyr? We need to put our spymaster on this ASAP if they are clean.
    B - I am not waiting for them, the situation home is quite dire.
    C - Let her remain there. We might need to get back to Vinland if there is an emergency, and I am not sure if anywhere else would be safer.

    Any stabilizers and/or meds to hinder, stop or reverse the process of descending into madness/becoming something inhuman?

    Why does Angartyr remain unaffected if they both share consciousness? Shouldn't Frey's craziness transfer to Angy? Are 'consciousness' and 'mind' different concepts as far as this LP is concerned?
