    What a horrible dilemma for treave to put you in. The only conceivable means by which you could put Mieren's head in a jar would involve having your dick fall off and your character losing his libido. I would be willing to flop for this vote only if it means that we aren't going to be some self-righteous faggot who gets butthurt about not receiving due process (like we give a fuck about giving due process to Kyle Theseus) after betraying mankind for a pair of magnificent demon titties.

    I don't know where the other ANGER voters want to take this, but you know my stance: yes, we did them wrong, but they've done us wrong too. And while we aren't in the right here (truthfully, no one except Mieren is), we still have plenty of shit to get pissed about.
    It doesn't take being a myopic douche to be angry at having this thrust upon us. After all, who are these goddesses to have forced us into this, what right did they have to slap that nuke on us, what right did our former friends have to kill Mieren? The way I want to take A is not about being reasonable, it's about getting pissed at people who thought they could push us around because they're higher (or thought they were) than us.
    Guess what, fuckers, the tables have been turned the other way.

    You flopped from one choice into the exact same choice. That never occurred to me before. I think you have ushered in a new revolution in how we flop.

    Fuck it, I'm flopping from BC to BC too.

  9. Well, I'm flopping from AC to AC!

    edit:
    you know, now that I think about it, I'm flopping from AC to AC.

    edit2: Just reread the update. Flopping to AC. Bros, it's the only way.

    No, but for real, I will now officially flop to AC.

    Given that our character never cared about being a hero, and was manipulated by the goddesses of fate all along for a purpose that was unknown to him so that he could be their pawn, of course he'd be pissed off. That being said, I will fight anybody who wants to go for revenge on Kyle Theseus just because we didn't get a trial. Gimme a fucking break, that is soft. There's no doubt that Kyle Theseus and Althus should die for being mindless slaves of the goddesses, but let's focus the brunt of our anger on where it truly belongs.

    In a nutshell:

    Oh, come on. Are any of you really going to be assed to move out of our bitching fortress and rise to power to smoke these assholes?

    If we're going to go to the capital to get revenge over that chick we might as well do it now and get it over with with AD while everyone's in a chaos rather than leaving over this dumb matter when we're just settling into our stride later on. I'd kill them if we came across them, or not if they have something to offer us in life, but I can't be bothered to pursue one batch of meanies over others when we have living chicks to peek on right near to us and I don't see a need to give up later flexibility by making this a definite goal. Someone reverse this decline! Revenge is too much effort to actively seek out.

    How do you know everyone's in chaos? The forces of Good have just won the war, don't see why things would be in disarray right now after the goddesses just got exactly what they wanted out of this little scheme of theirs. I don't take our companions' betrayal personally - we did betray them too, after all - but they willingly serve a force that used us as a pawn for a destiny that we never really wanted in the first place. Our guy never wanted to be a hero, he was forced into it to serve some inscrutable goal.

    Since Kyle and Althus seem to serve that same power, they gotta go.

    What I took from the update here is that it's a general attitude choice for now:

    That being said, I think you're right that A would involve a much more pro-active approach to this situation. Unlike B, where we'd be more content to just chill and do other things, A would involve actively seeking them out. At some point, we will find these assholes. But right now, we have some perving to do.

  13. Kipeci, your argument has resonated with me. Flopping to AC.

    In the end, the Codex can not choose to feel anything but butthurt.

    Truly, some fates are unescapable. :M

    The Seven Kingdoms are lame - we apparently have a whole multiverse to explore. Kill Theseus if he goes dimension hopping, but if we're going to devote ourselves to anything it ought to be locating our beloved Demon Tsun-Princess. Priorities.

  18. Again, the choice is about what we feel, not about what we are going to devote ourselves to.

    I mean, yeah, there is a promise of revenge, but that doesn't mean we have to do it now, or that we can't get distracted.

    treave, I would have to ask if that anger is what we feel towards 'trators', or what we feel about the situation in general. Or if we would be able to choose which way it goes at a later date. I know you said we would be able to clarify our reasons later, but will we be able to shift its target, too?

    I think at least some of us want it not to be personal but rather a crusade against HEAVANZ, and I don't know if that is what is being offered here.

    The real tragedy here is that we're back to a tie. Any regulars or 1C voters wanna help us out?

    I think A is ahead by one with Esquilax's flop.

    Think Random Word and my vote brought us back to a tie admittedly haven't counted.

  23. I'll go on record as saying that I'd rather not crusade against HEAVANZ to get our revenge. I do favor a crusade, but only to acquire women. Also, any pursuit of revenge against Theseus is secondary to this goal.

    Now if women happen to be in HEAVANZ and happen to claim to be goddesses, then PERHAPS I could be persuaded to vote that way in the future. Of course, that all depends on how this vote goes... *cough*

    You mean if they give you a perfectly good and reasonable justification (to them) for their actions, you would like to stop revengeance?

    If a tie will delay things, I'm fine with 1A instead of my preference 1B
