    Alia seems useful to the big man. She could be useful to us too, once we dispose of him.

    B.

    I'd say A1 and A2 are foolish, Alia's been turned into a heretical whore and, brainwashed or not, the damage is done. Nothing good can come of her.

    We've avoided most opportunities to talk with Aria, so I doubt that an attempt to connect with her at this point would work too well.

    Buuuuuuuuuuut, at the same time, I doubt Kurze would appreciate our tight lips, and he strikes me as the type of man who'd realize we've been holding information from him.

    Definitely gonna have to give this alot of thought.

    But our long term goal is more than obvious.

    A3. Failing that, A2.

    A2 - we haven't tried to use her to our advantage. It's worth a try at some point and we've seen the spell over her can be broken or interrupted.

    I'm leaning towards B, but I could be easily convinced to go with an A.

    A1.

    Failing that, I would go with A2, but only because it's mainly the same choice as A1,though for a different reason.

    A3, though I might flop to B if A1 or A2 was winning.

    I believe we're not gaining anything materially by choosing A2 instead of A3 or A1. It's just a way to establish the pilgrim's personality. Is he a good guy, with a moral standpoint ? Is he a pragmatic man ? Or is he servile and ass licking and self serving, trying to get on the good side of his master ?

    Am I right root ?

    Exploring didn't win? Damn! We still have below average strength after training with mercenaries?
    Well, troglodyte boxing turned out interesting anyway.

    I'll go with A3, it sounds more coherent with our previous choices. I fear B will get Kurze mad and our character impaled. A2 sounds dumb (as in "delusional teenager in love" kind of dumb).

    I'm flipping to A, but it's not one your choices root :P

    A4 we saved her life once already, seems a shame to throw it away now. I feel somewhat responsible for her being alive right now, and since it will cost us nothing, we might as well keep her alive. At the same time, I'm not losing sight that we might curry favor with the Lord or possibly use her as a pawn later. I don't really care about Issus.

    My new idea for our character archetype:

    [​IMG]

    A young Dr Schultz. I doubt he learned to be as efficient a killer as he is by being a nice guy, but at the same time he does seek to uphold values he believes in. Now we just need to figure out what those values are. So, I want power because the ends justify the means.

    A2. And fuck that she is beautiful. I am interested in how that mind control works.

    So we have a hexagon, then every word has 6 letters, and the first 6 lines each have 6 words.

    That's all I got for now.

    Is this a patristocrat? (Simple substitution cipher, but spaces / line breaks are not to be trusted?)

    If it were an ADFGVX-style cipher, you'd see 6 characters used exclusively in one section of the message, though.
