A) just a little nudge. Turn to Grimlith and very audibly tell him to prepare a travel pack of rations, subtly but clearly indicating that if archer's got nowhere to go, then that's where he's going if he doesn't do this.

We will accept your decision regardless. We'd be happy to have you but there is a village close to this castle. Hide your ties to rage and you could start over and hunt animals for a living. Or you could wait before deciding since you can always return here. Forget everybody else. Even ourselves. Just decide the future you would prefer to have. (He has to decide for himself or his loyalty will be unassured, he has to feel like he he has a choice. Without that his loyalty will only be out of necessity which may go away once the necessity is gone.)
>>

C. In the end, it is his decision. If hes going to have regrets either way, it will be because of his own choice, not because of us manipulating him to one side
>>
No. 1087925 ID: 27fceb

If he is this conflicted about the decision it shows that he is still not willing to give a sacrifice to the case. Which will only make him a liability in the long run.

A. I think doing anything else would be overdoing it. This was already a pretty big decision he took, and I don't think we should emotionally distress him any further with more tests.

First, Simply congratulate him on passing the initiation, and assure him he won't transform. Apologize for putting him through this as you wanted to perform test of loyalty to see how high he is willing to jump when asked and how serious he was about joining, and he passed with flying colors... of course if he wanted to transform, we can probably find some ways to arrange that.

Also, if we have the means to do so, tell him we shall have a feast tonight to celebrate his initiation.

No. 1088100 ID: eab3f4

Polt has it covered. He was never going to. We just needed proof he was willing to. So congratulations, we are honored by the dedication he has.
>>
No. 1088101 ID: 5ebd37

A) Congratulate him on his resolve. Explain that this initiation was in part to show him the sort of trickery we need to use to survive.

>>1088085
A feast... hey wasn't that troupe of weirdos supposed to put on a performance? Could make it a real party.
>>
No. 1088156 ID: 27fceb

I vote for doing the needle in the heart test. He might be willing to put his reputation on the line, and now we need to see if he will put his life as well. This will prove that he will stick with us even when we start to lose.

hehehe, sorry, but I just had to laugh like Abdle did. Don't worry, we'll help you out of this Bobbie.

D. Your time to shine, Abdle. Grab the needle from Bobbie, and make your disagreements on this test known. Just like how Bobbie is running things, and keeping you in line, you have to do that too, but with Bobbie. You both need each other to call out on each other's shit so you guys can be the best rulers you can be.

Ah ha ha ha ha! Ooh Gramleza's going to be so upset that she missed that.

Put your fo- ro- uh, tentacle down. Bobbie's going a little too far here, no need to torture the lad. Also don't give away that what happened to Rage was just a trick.
>>
No. 1088377 ID: 27fceb

I am reconsidering my previous suggestion, no need for this keep going forward. Stop the needle in the heart test, he is loyal or in love with us.
>>
No. 1088384 ID: e69e37

Pretty big stones on this dude. Still, wouldn't be a good test as-is. He believes Bobbie is powerful. Will he stay loyal once he sees it's a lie? Hard to say but how do you test that without revealing the unintended lie?

No. 1088441 ID: c260b4

She's basically doing what gram did, forcing a decision in defiance of team decisions. We gotta talk this out or there is no team and if that's the case we may as well leave.
>>
No. 1088442 ID: 27fceb

>>1088441

I agree with you a line needs to be drawn in the sand and she needs to learn that we all have to work as one. We are not her enemy we all work on helping her and if she can't see that then there is no real point in us being here.
>>
No. 1088464 ID: 7c55ad

Yeah, we'll need to have a talk with her and see why she did what she did despite us being against it, and nip the problem in the bud before it gets worse. Perhaps she is scared of him, or has trust issues, might have had a power trip moment, or maybe there's something about us that she was disgusted with. Whatever the case, we need to know the reasoning, and see what can be done. maybe get Abdle's sister involved if needed.
>>
No. 1088497 ID: 5ebd37

She's going to regret leading that poor boy on, especially when a certain someone, currently in the dungeon, hears about it.

But can't have a argument in front of your adoring subjects. Save it for later, in private.
Bobbie is queen, she doesn't need to listen to us. She should listen to Abdle though.

Hey, hey Abdle. Is the blood rushing to your head, all upside down like that?

No. 1088536 ID: 6b0eab

Drop the subject please, Abdle. That was then, and we will talk about that later privately. Lets be professional and focus on the task at hand for now.

What I want to do is have Clara decide what Gram's punishment should be as an eye for an eye kind of thing when she wakes up. But since she is unconscious at the moment, we are going to give Gram a chance to apologize to Clara by letting her write a formal apology letter to Clara in prison until Clara wakes up, if she so wishes to apologize and is serious about it. She should know that since Clara is going to be administrating the punishment, Gram should make sure her letter of apology is serious and sincere enough if she decides to write one, because who knows how severe Clara's punishment to Gram could be. This could help teach Gram consequences for her actions and teach her manners.
>>
No. 1088549 ID: 5ebd37

Calm Abdle, don't be like Gramleza.

>>1088536
That punishment sounds fair, if she can grow from this experience then all is well.
>>
No. 1088550 ID: 47c854

Seems she still fails to see the severity of this. She still put Clara's life on the line. Her words indicate intent even if she failed to see death as a potential consequence. We expect better from our subjects and even more from our council. Her defense is shrugging it off with "Well she didn't die." She has clearly learned nothing. She's fortunate we need her set of skills while Dredge is an issue. So what if we base her punishment on how well she meets expectations? She will have to write dull boring logs of her missions. Further poor behavior or poor performance will increase severity while meeting or exceeding expectations will decrease. She does exceedingly well she is only suspended from the council. She does exceedingly poorly she dies. Or worse as there are worse fates. She has one chance here to learn what is expected. Don't fail.

No. 1088677 ID: 7e4e06

Arguments happen, even among friends.

D. Before we vote, I want to hear Bobbie's reason for doing the needle test despite the majority being against it, and why she feel she needed to do it. Basically, I want to get an understanding of each other to better communicate appropriately early on before the arguments tear our team apart later on. Ive been through that before, and I dont want that to happen here again. Is everything alright Bobbie?

My reasoning for not using the needle test was that things can be very bad if the archer figures out it was all a lie, and we lead him on keeping him under our thumb with a lie. Everything about our relationship with him is built on a bridge of lies, which path could turn into a tightrope if he starts investigating or asking questions. We'll have to tread carefully with how we interact with him and our actions around him now.

No. 1088765 ID: 7c55ad

B. And I vote punishment.

Sorry Bobbie, but, you have to remember that we have a village of humans nearby our castle, and one of them even gave us a gift of apples. If you start showing a bias against humans and treat them unfairly against other species, they could start a protest, or worse revolt. We will go with your plan, but I highly recommend you treat the archer just as equal as your other allies that follow you from this point on.

And yeah, we love you Bobbie, but this punishment has to happen because we don't want this team to end up like what happened to Ramming Rage and his allies. Like Abdle said, if we are going to deal with a life or death situations, we can't have anyone going off to do what they feel like doing. That doesn't just go for Bobbie, but it goes for Abdle, and all of our followers as well.

A) This isn't how adults should deal with their interpersonal problems. If you two can't talk this out, then maybe your partnership just isn't working. And hitting each other when you don't like what the other did won't fix that.

This castle could really use a therapist on staff.

Well time to deal with this tie, by rolling the dice. Every even number on the dice is going to be for the punishment to be ignored, every odd number is going to be for the punishment to happen.

No. 1089183 ID: 7c55ad

D. I'm all for letting them start business as long as we get compensated in some way (TAXES BAYBEE!), but I think we should first ask questions before we make our decision. Like, does he has a way to sustain himself so he doesn't bite the other villagers for their blood without their consent? Would he be willing to pretend he isn't a vampire if being a vampire is a problem with the chief? are his employees vampires too? what is he and Maya Din's professional relationship, like how did they meet and what does she do? Stuff like that.

But starting a food industry here could help this world progress

Thinking it through, if humans don't like buying from monsters, they simply need to hire humans and non-monster employees to cook and sell the food. Humans will buy from other humans. Simple.

No. 1089194 ID: 31da67

So they don't have any other locations, this would be the first? Without being able to observe one of their operations we can't make any promises. Perhaps they could be afforded a trial run, under intense scrutiny.
We'll bring it up the next time we meet the village elder and get back to you.
>>
No. 1089208 ID: e415be

Well no promises but economic growth is usually good. Just remember we are not the law in that place. For now. Follow their rules. Oh it may help if you provide gifts *cough*bribes*cough* to the village chief. Should you be willing we'll have improved odds. Still no promises though.
>>
No. 1089211 ID: e8342f

One final idea, they could cook a meal for the chief later on to help convince him later after we talk to him and hes on the fense about it.
But yeah, we'll talk to then, but no promises.

Important for us to talk to bobbie and see her thoughts about it and speaking to the chief about it too

The armor is her body is my guess.

I guess one more question before she leaves, are there any interdimensional beings or travelers out there that we should be wary of or not trust?

No. 1089343 ID: dcf4fb

Dislike speculating though playing detective is useful. Sharp wits are key in warfare to figuring out the opponent's moves. So since it's no stakes let's puzzle this. From what is stated she specifically says the armor gives her body shape. From which it can be inferred she would have no shape sans armor or similar items. While she may *be* the armor itself, she may also be without form if she had none. So, 3 likely possibilities. 1, she's the armor itself given life, 2 she's a slime or ooze, 3 she is a spirit that has possessed it to give herself shape.

You are a mimic that is disguised as a suit of armor. If we are allowed to ask questions ask about the world where her boss came from.
