    The vamps weren't too bad, all things considered, and Sarah's justification has some truth to it. If they weren't so obnoxious about it and acted as if they hadn't lost their humanity yet instead of being dicks and gloating over their superiority, they could have lived. Oh, well.

    Moderation is a virtue here.

    4B - Jacob has wisely avoided dealing with us, and so I do not have strong feelings against him. Sarah, though... She deserves everything that is coming to her.
    5C - Don't trust to an eldritch God something that you can do yourself. Commense the mass executions!
    6A - We can't into playing women anyway.

    Awww yiss. There is hope for Vinland yet.

    1A - if we want to maintain some sort of cohesion with the direction the country is heading to, it's either this, or dictatorship. And I am not ready to abandon all opportunities to become an hero yet. Besides, humans should be ruled by humans. We risk becoming what Mýrr or Sarah and Jacob were if we assume command without people under our rule having any input whatsoever. Our goals, though supposedly beneficial, are no less alien to the normals.
    2A - remove all slavers from premises. We will need to recover from the losses incurred by the war, and there is little economical gain in keeping this institute, yet it is a gunpowder keg waiting to be lit.
    3B - Peace! Labour! May! :happytrollboy:

    Seriously, though, how these things are done is you introduce the benefits of a new system where the previous was deficient on top of what already works, and then, if radical elements still want to tear it apart (and they would), you either convert them or purge them. As a full-blown revolution is bound to end in blood, and most people don't much care for ideologies, preferring being fed, healthy and free instead, both steps would grant you a massive support from your population, something we seem to be sorely lacking right now.

    As for the 'lack of motivation' (yeah, right :lol:), I am sure their stance would change radically when the world becomes advanced enough to have aviation and one would not be able to outlast a war sitting behind a fortified wall. Having to earn the right for survival does wonders to people, and we have no shortage of enemies.

    Besides,
    [​IMG] :love:

    4B - he is useful. He will help us reform the country, he will win the people to our cause (don't we need to take back The City to start doing anything with Vinland?), and if he proves too much trouble, he can always be advised to test his ideas in full somewhere else before we start implementing them. Say, in the lands of Rus.

    Hmmm. Could it be related to our statement that we will shoot all the leaders of our country without any sort of plan behind it while the war is still ongoing, and only then we will start thinking about what to do next? :M
    Because I would have shot us, too, after such a claim.

    Why are we turning this into a personal witch-hunt? :|

    Do this shit properly or not at all! We must preserve our own sanity and organize some special troikas who will look into the guilt of each individual based on the law, not on a whim of the madman in charge. :salute:

    Also, I do not understand. Don't Angartyr and Freyjanna share a mind? Why would there be such a difference in approach? Is it because of all of the abuse she suffered herself? Or because she is a vampire?

    We don't know what happened to Frey's body after we got shot, do we? Did we lose our ability to switch already?

    I am almost afraid to ask what you could possibly do to a person after an unimaginable ancient horror is done with them.

    P.S. Does Carl know or at least suspect where to find Isaac? He has quite a spy network to track us down and bring to him.

    I may not have followed this CYOA too attentively... but why Sarah couldn't kill Kraka earlier without danger to herself? What changed now?

    ...but to ask?

    I just can't get him out of my head. The guy desired money, he got more than he could spend. Then he desired immortality, and got it on a silver platter. But why would anyone think he will stop there?

    I have a feeling that he is involved in this conflict in one way or the other.

    Ahhhh so much going on!

    1 A - things seemed to be working OK until the whole, uh, mass-enthrallment thing. Can't trust these fools with democracy.
    2 A - this'll cause some social instability, but oh well.
    3 D - technology is just too primitive to support communism yet. Besides a little inequality, has capitalism really treated us so bad? I wish there was an "alternate" option to have a modern Scandinavian-style socialism
    4 A - sorry ... nice guy, but we really don't need someone fermenting revolution at this time

    Oh, but he was. :incline:

    It does not make sense to get rid of people who are currently trying to help you, but you need not look much further than to Jacob's and Sara's fates to find out what happens to the ones trying to subvert us. Or to the council members. Or to the infiltrators, if we manage to identify and find them. And if Carl ever goes too far, well... :smug:

    Right, the votes.

    1A - The low-rankin officials don't decide anything. Traitors or not, they can't affect the workings of the state in a significant way. They are also easily interchangeable if we ever suspect them of something. As long as we do not depend on them too much (they have no irreplaceable elements among them, and we have a controlling organ to cross-check their loyalties and activities) we can leave their investigation for later after establishing the new government.


    Carl's people would probably be good candidates for an institution that would check them out. They are not friends of Myrr. Of course they aren't the best friends of our government, either, but we can deal with it one problem at a time.

    2C>A - Isaac is hidden too thoroughly to concern ourselves with him. Finding him will require too much time, and time is not something we have in abundance. If he is their enemy, he will come out of hiding himself should we show ourselves to be strong enough to oppose them.

    Though the choice implies we will do so after the order is restored. In which case it might be worthwhile to investigate the lead.

    3B - First, establish the government. Next, emancipate the slaves. Do it quiclky, though, for the situation can be exploited both ways, no matter if we release them or keep the status quo. Also, "because freedom" is not much of an argument. We have not gone full SJW yet.

    4B - Same with the economics. Establish the governmentt, finish the war, build the powerbase that would be enough to make decisions of that magnitude without turning the boat over.

    5B - Instead, use the temporary stability to enhance your airforce and end the war.

    Not sure about the 6th question. How much their genetic heritage corresponds to their present day actions? :flamesaw:

    13-17, closer to 13.
    I'd like to eventually see Angatyr use his sword again.

    Sexual innuendo?

    Well mental age is over 50, physical age is unknown. Depend on if ageing was stooped by vampire curse or merge with Angsty man.

    This is an unexpected development.

    Regardless of whether Frey is right or not, I guess we can play along and see where she is going to take the country. I don't want to commit to killing her just yet now that the first attempt has failed and we got a better understanding of where she stands.
