    I am not sure whether to feel incredibly insulted over being omitted from the ranks of the most ardent supporters of the revolution...

    Don't worry comrade Nevill, they have a nice vacation lined up for you at a resort archipelago. The experience will turn you into a new man.

    OK these pictures have sent my doubts to gulag

    A > B for first choice
    Second choice doesn’t matter

    More seriously, with sanitation as it is in the time barring some Astra bullshit and no clue of how human disease impacts elves I don’t want to have Rain hanging out at the hospital. Given that we’re overwhelmingly voting to glue her to the hip, can’t be there.

  5. Voting to have her come to the hospital was an effort to see if we could have her manifest some sort of elven healing magic to help Liz.

    There’s not a plague at the moment and she’s en fun around humans her whole life.

    Not sure why you think having Rain help with a communist revolution is a better idea though as far her as safely is concerned...

    Elves seem to be some sort of natives to the area and native people generally get wrecked by disease from more populated parts of the world. Thus far she’s lived with us in rural nowheres and briefly here but it’s another step up to keep her at some disgusting hospital for this larger city where a ton of sick people are coming and we’re probably cleaning bedpans, lancing boils and swatting crap she shouldn’t eat out of her mouth without so much as washing our hands in between.

  7. Except we’ve been living in a city for months with zero problems despite bringing home who knows what with us.

    You’re also assuming elves can even contract human diseases so easily. Diseases generally have a rough time crossing species effectively and when they do, they’re often very weak.

    It’s not like she’s a human native with 100% compatibility with a disease. Again, assuming elves don’t have some super immune system.

    I didn't really took into account who's supporting what, I mostly took profile pics from last page that I could paste on a nice propaganda picture, since those are for the Communitarian Council of Codexian Players. I wanted to add Lambchop, but his portrait didn't fit.

    Sure we’ve been in a city, but we haven’t been right close and personal taking care of the concentrated very sickest of the place and managing their fluids with Rain right there at our side. I don’t know what her immune system is like (shit can jump from bats to people and all so different species is not necessarily a bar even if she is) but I’d rather not rely on elf magic she may or may not have to be our primary barrier keeping a toddler healthy staying inside a 19th century hospital all day as her caretaker practically swims in vile fluids.

    Here's today closeout tally. The stalemate between 1B and 1C was broken in 1B's favor, but not without resistance from Comrade Commissar Lambchop. In other news, thanks to support from Comrades Kipeci and baud, AC is now up one vote, continuing it's slow but steady climb up the ranks.

    Is anyone willing to entertain supporting 1A after this shift? We welcome all comrades, new and old.

    ===Tally===

    ==1st choice==
    A - 6 (2)
    B - 7 (11)
    C - 8

    ==2nd choice==

    A - 0
    B - 1
    C - 19

    The fire rises, and with it, the vote count for the revolution!
    "We are fanning the flames of a world-wide fire!"
    Now we just need Tigranes and Esquilax pitching in, a couple flops from the hospital crowd, and we can start looking for an Astra Cruiser named Aurora.
    Come on, men, you know you want to!

    I switched back to 1B so people like you could have a chance to have your voice heard. Don't be afraid. We already have a scapegoat in Baltika9, or the old standby Azira.

    It’s more in character and if I am right about Liz she doesn’t really need our help and if I am right about Lenin he will search for us again.

    Could you elaborate? The way the choice is made and treave's comment below makes me think it's a one-time deal.
    We're just a bright young man to him. Lenin is impressed by our work ethic, but I doubt he'll go out of his way to recruit us again.

    I think 1A is plenty in-character. Lenin's offer wouldn't be received by Wrinkly as a random occurrence. To him, the KMI and all its members are serious professionals who gave him a stready paycheck, a stable job and an opportunity to learn one the job. Lenin's offer sounds less like a random occurrence, and more like a senior colleague offering to take a junior colleague under his wing. It feels something like this: 'I see a lot of potential in you, kid. I'm doing a thing here, you want in?'

    And I think that Wrinkly would be open to doing so. He's an adventurous lad, who voluntarily uprooted his life twice, the first time to leave his shack and the second to leave Scottsfield, went gallivanting through ruins and jungkes, and participated in a weird dream-ritual. New experiences and career opportunities (which is exactly how Wrinkly would think of this offer) don't intimidate our character at all. So, yes, I can see Wrinkly accepting this offer.

    Stand with us, comrades! Stand for 1A!

    :salute:

    Edit: as for why Lenin is even trying to recruit us, I think ChumBucket is at least partially right.
    'Not a slacker, anarchist or degenerate. Works hard to feed his charge and has the sense to stay away from dumb shit like 'package delivery.''
    :greatjob:
    'I can work with that.'

    All the skill points. More skill points than you can shake SMA's giant cock at!
    :bounce:

    Meh, I don't think skill points will be a concern with any choice. We'll have opportunities to develop them no matter where we end go. My question is: what exactly does this academy teach? Is it a vocational school, or do they provide a 'classical' education in liberal arts and physical sciences that the Association then refines into applicable professional skills through on the job training?
