    It does sound like we don't have enough Bai points for her to share something really useful with us right now.

    Still, it feels somewhat strange to try and build a proper cooperative relationship while undermining her fight with Pang Xiaohu.

    I do not want to tell her everything, since it is not our secret to tell (Heavens fighting against Shun is kind of a huge deal, as far as his legitimacy is concerned), and I just know Madam Nie will find a way to use it against us. A half-truth is probably acceptable here. She'll figure the rest eventually, but by then it might be already late for zhangs.

    Maybe I should not get involed with Xiaohu, after all. Or maybe I should go all the way and help Bai apprehend him.

    I just don't trust what is happening in the Palace anymore, and we've been told repeatedly, since the very beginning of the LP, not to get entangled in the matters of the court. I figured that Xiaohu might know something about the recent happenings. He did visit Youxia City for some reason, after all.

    I'll abstain on the second choice.

    Well, if we're going to help BJ catch Little Tiger, we're good to share the whole story, will make for a closer relationship between us.
    If we don't, then half-truth it is.

    Pang would probably prefer us to specifically beat him down rather than picking on his underlings; he's always expressed concern for their safety, after all.

    Where's the option to stay out of the fight?

    BC

    And damn were that some shitty choices for who to speak with. Cao'er who rarely has anything to say, Bro Jiutan, who is as trustable as a snake, and two guys we barely know. Not that I have any right to complain since I havent'voted.

    May as well ask treave, can we freeform a 2E - stay out of this option?

    Why do you even want to stay out of it... Why do you care enough to want to stay out of it?
    :hmmm:

    Also fuck you for neglecting BJ asshats.

    And if so it must be I ammend my vote to
    A>B, A>C

    Pang is a dangerous fag that is chaotic neutral enough to be all :bro: when we help him and THEN he stabs us in the back. Also banditry needs to die, demon demands it - protect the innocents.

    I don't want to go after Pang but I also don't want to fight BJ or twins. Going after Pang's men will likely get him more furious than going after him. But out of these options, BJ is most likely to understand.

    BB.


    I just reread the update and this caught my attention.

    Maybe we shouldn't jump into the Pang vs BJ fight? Maybe we should go help (or 'help') the twins.

    Flopping to BD.

    What do you even hope to gain by sparing Pang's life? There is nothing to gain as the demonic possesion will most likely block us from working with bandits anyway.
    Also he is chaotic neutral - can't trust the guy.

    He's a cool bro. Bandits around and doesn't afraid of anything. Likes and respects us.

    The demonic possession comes to full force after hueshan summit, so we still have some free will left.
    Little tiger does have some sense of honor.
    It mostly boils to this:
    Don't fuck me or my men and I don't fuck you.

    He doesnt respect us. He just behaves in a way that is most convinient to him:
    - he ran from tibet
    - he cut us slack for doing anything to his men (table guy) because it was US and he didnt want a hard fight (otherwise he would just kill anyone that thread on his band most probably, have to uphold reputation)

    There are not enough interactions with him to gauge if he is a 'bro' or not. But on the grounds of him being a bandit we have to assume he is a self serving bastard that wont stop at nothing when there is a profit for him.

    Also a probable way how this plays out:
    - if we dont help Twins they get kidnapped, then if we let Pang run we have no bargaining chip.
    - if we dont help BJ but go for the Twins he weasels his way out by some dirty play OR if he has any honour as you say - he goes in to help his guys.

    So in my opinion best options are either help BJ or help Twins (might be a better option even). In our current situation we gain nothing by helping bandits. Also letting bandits run away is a great way to 'help' the Empire...

    You're a classist asshole, bro. Occupation doesn't really determine personality, especially if you're born into it (Prince of the Bandit Kingdom). A tough, bloody man he may be, but the man has a strong sense of loyalty and honor (his people and kingdom). Don't write him of because 'lolevulbandit.' He can be useful.
    treave, what are we aiming for on A? Kill him or capture him?

    The whole point of a BANDIT kingdom is that they pray on the weak. If he would care in the slightest he would do something about it, dont you think?
    He is a typical bully that treave tries to romanticize, doesnt change the fact that the guy is a thug and a dick to most people he crosses his path with.

    They dont chase him for nothing.

    We dont go around stealing and murdering. And I dont see us running around terrorizing villages.

    We might be a dashing rogue but in the end we solve more problems than we cause, cant say that about briggands.

    Also Jing is a condom enterpenour, he doesnt have to resort to petty crime to make his living!
