    And most importantly, is Garland still alive?

    Oh well, might vote now so I don't miss out yet again. BA for now.

    I was browsing older post and and found this.

    Not sure if relevant, but Senya didn't want to sacrifice loved ones back then.

    I don't see the Jupiter Bomb plan working out:

    I think we'll have to use the victims of the Gray Death as fuel here, sadly. If the bomb doesn't explode, then Dio will grow even more powerful in this place. If you combine that with a battle royale here, the result is... pretty fucking bad. You face a Dio that is growing in power while simultaneously having to deal with even tougher Masters. I think the only way you can play this is either AB or BA.

    BA for now

    He changed, drastically. See the denial of his darker self.

    Also, using the bomb is stupid: rule of thumb, if you're not sure your explosives will work, don't use them.

    By Ean's beard, Sheldon really carries a grudge. What a dwebish asshole nerd. Compare Ean meeting Shulgi, last time both met Ean had stomped Shulgi ass flat. And yet both put aside the grudge instantly.

    Also the rules failed, how surprising. Diogenes refused IAE telling him he was a insignificant speck, some lines of code weren't going to stop Diogenes Camna, who has willpower +100000000000000000.

    Yeah, I think we (and by "we, I mean I) committed a great error here. Hell, the sun bomb would've come handy.

    Fuck guys, I think weakening the bomb was not a good idea now. But then again we had to do something to defeat the Star League and we thought it was becoming unnecessary at the time.

    also Seven Masters vs Ean and Shulgi. Ean is overpowered as fuck now, but that may be too much even for them both.

    Anyone remembers echoes of a ealier question? Would we sacrifice the princess to save the Earth?
    Well, its even worse now: Do we sacrifice most of Earth AND the princess to save existance?
    I'm sorry, Kyrie.

    BA. Time to use a bad act for a ultimate good. I hope they can pardon Senya.

    Sadly, we have bigger things to worry about than ghost waifus and dissassmebled masses of data.

    Then again, remaking the Gieloth would have been pretty neat. Everyone gets a tentacle!

    I can see a good argument for BB if we consider we can ressurect Shulgi, Ean, Sekhenun and the others when we become God. Just get a vessel (easy for Senya) and transplant the info into it. There's also the possibility Big E and Shulgi stomp their asses and take their Vajras. I don't think Shulgi would try and take on Dio AND The Masters if he didn't knew he could do that, Ean might but Ean gonna Ean.

    I think Mikey and Rory are going to side against Dio for what he did to Cooper and the fact he just bypassed their rules, perhaps Stella does as well.

    Also, we can now kill the Masters without worrying about the universal reset. Sweet.

    One key question is whether fighting in Dios presence or absence increases any Masters' chances of defecting. E.g. Mike and Rory. I suspect Sheldon or Stella would be more willing to turncoat or waver if they saw what Dio will soon become.

    The bomb might or might not work, yes, but no one's gotten around to telling Senya that. :lol:

    No sign of the other immortals, might be dead or wounded or doing other stuff. Garland is presumably still alive.

    I'll probably be looking to update today, in about 18 hours or so, but we'll see where the discussion leads first.

    Man, we sure could've used the mecha now. Amping it up with our powers and shooting the Anihilator Cannon in Dio's eyes might've solved it.

    That is what I was thinking as well. Mike and Rory seem more likely, Sheldon and Stella might too, but Sheldon seems to hate Gilgamesh/Ean for some reason, or at least desires to battle him for teh lulz. I think Galen might desert as well, he was helping Mike and Rory, I think.

    Its a real pity Cooper died, he could've swayed the others and we would have a Master on our side.

    If we get them to their arena for the final Ean and Shulgi vs Masters showdown they're going to focus on the two, especially Sheldon who seems to be the leader here. We do get brownie points for allowing them their own little private deathmatch.

    Oh man, Senya's gonna kill Ean if the masters don't get to him first :lol:

    Can we do both? Say, send in the bomb, if it fails, use the gray death victims as fuel?

    Well, seeing as the option to power up is there no matter what, if the bomb doesn't work you fall back on B, naturally.

    Is there any disadvantage to falling back on the other option?

    Surely there is, or we wouldn't have such a choice. E.g. the bomb may be useful even for another purpose.

    I'm leaning towards single theatre battle, brownie points for allowing a private showdown really doesn't make characters like Sheldon harbour any goodwill towards us. The only way to get Masters out of the way is show what a Grand Dick Dio is becoming or kill them.

    There are three rather obvious outcomes to A.

    1. Bomb goes off and kills Dio.
    2. Bomb goes off and only wounds Dio.
    3. Bomb doesn't go off.

    As for absorbing the souls, there's no inherent difference to doing it now or later.

    Probably he will have more power so we will use more data or mby not.

    i vote AA due to role playing, Senya don't know about bomb and i think it would be stupid to drag this half galaxy and end up not even trying to use it.

    Bomb goes off and kills not only Dio but everyone else, or at least some of our allies?

    My prediction if we pick A is that the bomb will not go off, but it will be dormant. Someone will have to go and set it off manually. This probably means a heroic sacrifice by Ean, but hey, maybe Shulgi will surprise us. Ean pulled off the heroic sacrifice the last time Dio was around, perhaps Ean's old rival/new friend will return the favour. Likely, this means that Dio will rapidly become more powerful and approach closer to omnipotence.

    Goddamnit, this Sheldon guy is a fucking idiot:

    He masterminds a plan that is obviously a bad idea because Dio is an egomaniac to the point where laws of reality don't apply to him. Then now when shit inevitably hits the fan and we try to mitigate it, the guy wants to fight the people who want to take out the person he planned on enslaving in the first fucking place. Fuck these assholes.

    However, if we have a battle royale here, perhaps having everyone in one spot might actually allow us to win them over. They might be enemies now, but perhaps they might come together if/once Dio becomes too powerful. If Sheldon and his Masters abandon this place, then maybe fighting Dio is easier short-term (in which case BB is the way to go to beat him down ASAP), but we could turn this crisis into an opportunity if we play our cards right.

    This guy says that he doesn't care who becomes Iae, but he must know that Dio sees him as a threat and will inevitably wipe him out. He might be stubborn and motivated by ego, but I think he'll change his tune quickly once he realizes that Dio will kill him if he doesn't smarten the fuck up and help us.

    I might flop to BB; generally relying on metagaming a lot can be a disaster, plus I wonder what the downsides to using the Grey Death ghosts as fuel to beat Dio would be. There must be a downside. Nevertheless, I'm fairly sure that BB would put Dio out of the picture. One-on-one, he wouldn't be strong enough to deal with Senya under those circumstances.

    Well, we could give Colonel Camna the chance to gloriously sacrifice himself to ensure the bomb goes off...

    Before Sheldon and Ean square off for their slap fight, can we point out to Sheldon that we are currently one of two options for the new god, and the only one who--for the moment--does not have a reason to want to consign him to an eternity of damnation?

    According to treave:

    (implying that they won't be recoverable anymore, so, no more Kyrie)

    There's another problem the Jupiter bomb would do well to adress: The Vajra fortresses. For now, the fleet is taking care of them, but I'm pretty sure that, unless Adrahasis pulls some TACTICAL GENIUS, the fleet is doomed.

    Flip-flopping to AA. I wish we had the SUN BOMB to make sure, but the Jupiter bomb is already ridiculously megapowerful as fuck. Hell, the SUN BOMB might kill us all despite Senya's powers. It might get us the opportunity to turn the masters against Dio, eliminating the Vajra fortress problem. In case we fail, Senya will then use the souls as fuel to fight Dio or the Vajra fortresses.

    I wonder if Shulgi has some plan to deal with Dio, I don't think he would be making threats to God while fighting with the Masters if he didn't have a plan to solve it. Dio always has a backup plan, but so does Senya and Shulgi.

    Ins't Garland already there, waiting to once again prove that ramming always works?

    Having Dio's rather more upstanding and honourful descendant kill him is hilarious. Extra points if the world finds out after we save everyone. Thankfully Shulgi saved us from the horror of having a entire continent called "Diogenesland", which would only stroke even more the God-sized ego of Dio.

    INCREDIBLE NEWS: DIOGENES CAMNA, NOTABLE ANCESTOR OF HOUSE CAMNA, TURNS OUT TO BE IMMORTAL, IN LEAGUE WITH THE MASTERS, ALMOST TURNED INTO GOD, ALSO A IMMENSE BACKSTABBING ASSHOLE.
    Other news:
    Ean and Sekhenun crowned God-Emperor and Empress of the Galactic Shinar Empire of Man, ceremony tomorrow
    Shulgi sightings all over the solar system cause confusion and paranoia.
