    No giving away a sample of our blood, please. We have enough of these abominations running around, no need to make them our equals or, worse yet, betters. Not to mention that our blood might give them power over us, a weapon to neutralize us, or something else entirely.

    I wonder why she couldn't just take it from us when we were asleep.

    1C, probably.

    Can someone remind me what was the deal with Alexis? Did we forgive him, or is there other reason he still draws breath? Is the Eastern Roman Empire at war with us right now?

    2A. It's too early to go after Sarah - she knew what she was doing when she guided us to Kraka, so she should be on alert. If our spymaster is worth anything, we can't sneak inside their house unnoticed, either, so it's better to start from the basic stuff like blood samples. I hope the spymaster has them taken like any other good citizen in our country.

    So he broke his promise by waging a war, didn't he? Now I am tempted to throw his skull to the skull throne. :|

    But I will probably prefer Frey to regain a bit of her sanity and that means staying away from the likes of the Queen of Death.

    I have nearly forgotten, seeing how it was written in July, but could it be that Smaragdur is actually one of the sources of our trouble?

    Kerosene or not, it might have been a right decision to recapture it ASAP.

    Also, did anything ever come out of our conversation with Alp Arslan? There was an intention to form an alliance with Turks, but it was eclipsed by the pursuit of technology. Did we give up on the idea, or did something happen that prevented it naturally?

    Hah.

    Who wants to bet that it started with Isaac and bloomed when we set sail for Jerusalem, leaving the country wide open to vampiric manipulation while we searched high and low for their artefacts? The 'Dex is full of l1bruls who just can't say no to a capitalist pig and would hug with a pair of vicious bloodsuckers. :argh::lol:

    1. Hide Frey under a table and go back with guns blazing.

    Cassidy, how poisonous is our blood to vampires, exactly? How much is enough to turn them into ash? A droplet of blood? What if it is dissolved in a glass of water? Can we 'poison' the water with our blood? If we feed them a Freyjanna-flavoured steak, will it kill them? What effect would our blood have on normal humans?

    What happens to the thralls if their masters die?

    There might be a way to kill them all using our unique condition. I imagine the conspiracy would be easier to believe in if major Counsil members would spontaneously combust where they stand. Though doing it in the middle of the war is risky.

    Also, when did the records stop? For how long (and since when) this was going on?

    What is the most efficient method of delivery that is available for us, then? A syringe, a special 'bullet'?

    Are tranquilizer guns invented yet?

    Only mass executions will save the country now.
    :russia::love:

    Well, our best chance lies with destroying J&S, then. We can't behead our whole country, and we likely have no one loyal left to do the beheadings anyway.

    I wonder though how deep the corruption goes. Do the thralls even realize they act against their own country, or are they not aware of their masters' plan?

    Kraka was our only ally, or at least a counterweight, to the threat of Sarah and Jacob - barring Ia, of course. We were obliged to try and save her if we wanted to have a chance at this.

    It is not like if we didn't come back we would have a plausible deniability, with Angartyr's body in Kraka's mansion and several guards as witnesses to our alliance. If Kraka fell, they would have come after us all the same.

    :hahano:

    No, really. What.

    Can you remind me why does Sarah has such a degree of control over Angy's mind? Is it the same with Freyjanna?

    What would happen if we transfer our conscience as a way out? Or is it futile since it changes nothing? We could leave the country as Freyjanna... we even could try to outsmart the two. That would probably be the end of Angartyr, though.

    What happens to Freyjanna should we agree to leave?

    What? That was not there before... :|

    :hmmm:

    Nope. Still do not want to risk unleashing Ia.

    Can we ask them why they started the war if they are so benevolent and want the best for our people?

    Also, if Ia can dominate Sarah's and Jacob's will... wouldn't he be able to dominate us through them? What do we know about him?

    Now, I have no idea about mechanics in the game, but if the result isn't decided by a die roll, I am leaning on those two options being dead ends.

    I am weighting the risks of IAIAIA against starting anew, being immortal and all. So far I find IAIAIA less attractive, and that is saying something.

    Yes, pretty much. But the leak of technology? All that effort we put on keeping Vinland separate from the whole world, gone in an instant. For what?

    I don't get their motives. Hell, I don't even get why they are offering us a way out. What, do they think we can be friends some time down the line? Why are they taking the risk yet again? Especially when they know our blood kills them.

    It just makes no fucking sense unless they know something that we don't, which would not actually surprise me.

    Still, in a game between ancient horrors there are bigger players and bigger stakes. We have introduced a new force to the world, and at least it isn't that much worse than the others.

    To hell with it, DA. Maybe Vinland will play an important role in the upcoming conflict. Time will tell.

    So, basically, we are on course to the normal timeline. :salute:

    Can we get a seat?

    Kraka know about things she shouldn't. I dont think that setting free something outleveling undead vampires this much is a good idea. They are quite cruel, but its still not certain they are against humanity. Kinda expect this whole situation an elaborate way to free her by Kraka or someone using her. Leak of tech is quite good from my perspective. Struggle is a source of Evolution and we need rapid development. Attempt to spread understanding might be correct path. Tech given to rest of world is already obsolete. Angartyr's exile might become a catalyst for change.

    AA Do what we can to remove all conniving manipulators from premises! Assuming the second update is a joke.

    1. E, Their tech should be useful even after they are gone.
    2. C>A, Don't want to draw too much attention but failing that death to the melonhead overlords!
    3. C, Probably should not change too much before we are ready to deal with the big threats.
    4. B>C>D, They still have information we could use after all.
    5. C, Some things are best done with a bullet.
    6. A>B, Don't have a strong preference either way.
