    All I want to know is how to use WQS to get out of this conundrum. There must be a way!

    Oh, and no, we'll go on a wedding tour later, visiting Tufan, Guizhou, Yao's Mansion and Qingcheng in turn, and arriving to the Huashan Summit just in time to marry Bai Jiutian.

    Edit: Uh, and you just had to add this...

    Alright. We'll do it in the seniority order.

    Screw it! We'll marry all the girls at once! And I mean all the girls. YOLOTIGER OR NO TIGER AT ALL!

    The triumphant return of the demon-possessed hero! Yay!
    Where's the fireworks? Foolish mortals!
    I wanted to make them honest women, but now?!

  4. C. Reveal that you are the new Fire Temple Lord and explain that Qilin has brilliantly arranged for you to marry the Holy Maiden as well in a power play that will strengthen the Wudu Cult and that there must be a dual wedding to avoid offending their sect.

    1. The wedding will occur as soon as possible.

    2. The wedding must be delayed until after the summit.

    C2 :M

    edit: actually, I have a feeling Yunzi would run at this point...so C2 is best for now...

    edit: This is now what B is going to be about as treave said it was a better excuse than he had thought up. Also, if we use this excuse it's actually a valid reason for the delay as treave says Yunzi is still underage and can't be married until later.

    Hm, I suppose that's an option. Alright.

    Hm. I like the plan to appeal for power and potential profits that the Wudu seem to value above proper ceremonies... but isn't it going to invalidate the choice?

    Isn't it just B, delaying it under some kind of a pretence?

    It's still better than the excuse I thought up for B, I suppose. But you can't have the Fire Temple marriage early because Yunzi is still underage.

    Well, I always wanted it to be a dual marriage, because of our previous talk of how the girls are all equal in our heart and all that.

    I just didn't know it was possible.

    I guess that would be ideal for me. C2.

    It is possible, but how well will they buy the excuse is another thing. I'll file the C votes under B.

    Can somebody explain why C2 is preferrable to C1?

    It would be nice for epilogue purposes, I suppose, but can't we have a bit of happiness in the LP itself?

    Especially since we'll probably need our factions strongly tied together before shit goes down. We want the Wudu Cult to be there when the Fire Cult will inevitably get assaulted. So it stands to reason we might want to get into an alliance by marriage sooner rather than later.

    Well, I am more interested in keeping our party together than in the effects it will have on our political alliances. The former will have a more direct and immediate effect, and if one of them runs off, the political consequences are going to be disastrous as well.

    On that front, can't Jing figure something up to keep the girls relatively happy with the outcome? He didn't swallow that silver tongue of his, did he?

  13. As far as excuses go, "I can't because I your daughter wants me to marry another girl too" is pretty original. Brown wedding of excuses and all that.


    edit: Nevill, 1) Yunzi is underage and can't be married now, 2) Yunzi would probably bolt anyway.

    Well it depends how Yunzi will response.
    Last time when we revealed something about possible wedding she ran off.

    Are you saying there is not enough Happiness in the LP so far? :rpgcodex:

    I thought the common complaint was that Jing wasn't cursed enough.

    Only two of them would care about who would be first, and I suppose you can say the relationship is not that simple now since you guys didn't send Qilin away.

    Cao'er, Yifang and Lingshu get no love. :( It's always wife No.1 vs wife No.3.

    And we haven't patted Xuezi on the head in a while.

  18. "Please, sir, I want some more."
    "More? MORE?!"

    Seriously, Nevill, don't make him mad! :lol:

    But I am a masochist. I want him mad!

    Well, not really. Not really mad, that is - I won't refute the masochist part.

    Yeah, those two are a bit more vital to the story, unfortunately. You guys went down the Qilin route, elevating her from side-story character to female heroine. And making things more complicated.

    For example if we went with the Cao'er route back then, her background would then have been more prominently tied into the main plot.

  21. On a side note, I'm surprised the whole possession by sword eating demon didn't bump our stats a little...

    edit:
    complicated = harem. harem = complicated. It's like that yin yang taoist thing treave was talking about.

    Our SWORDS stats, to be precice.

    Can we please let the demon sleep? The corruption is going to take a while, and I see no need to escalate the process.

    What was the ticket to the Cao'er's route? Staying at Emei when we had the choice? Avoiding Zhang Jue route? Inviting her with us outright when we decided what to do with her?

    And the relationship is not complicated enough. I want my love dodecahedrons! The utter clusterfuck with schemes and intrigues for the first place, with poisons, snakes, knives and laxatives flying around.

    Hopefully, the demon will get scared and runs away.

    At the very least, staying at Emei. If not, not opting to throw her to safety. Also, I fear that it is impossible to totally avoid Zhang Jue route in this LP. Given, uh, the voters' fancies.

    Again, a reminder: if there are any C votes, I'm filing it under B. So just vote B in the first place and refuse to marry Qilin because you will only want to marry her if it's along with all the other girls.
