I think I have a few more conversations in me.  I think the trouble I'm having now is, the world is built, which is what we've been doing thus far.  The rest would be moving forward with it, having some kind of narrative?

Because I have ideas as to where I could go with my part, but I don't want to bring it anywhere it's going to fuck up anyone's work.

I needs vomit with glee and terror.

I seem to have fallen behind the times, after getting off for a few hours. :(

I vote for Khara, because she's a shifty bitch.

I don't know, it sounds like that was a hell of a more interesting time than even this game.   8)

Switching to Requia.

Blight   Abstain
Jenne   Abstain
EoC   Requia
Freeky   Posted
Khara   Requia
Luna   Abstain
Requia   Posted
BDS   Requia
Villager   Abstain

I also have a strange feeling about Khara's defensiveness, I would consider her likely to be a spider. While leaves Jenne as the third, I think.

I actually have a stronger feeling about Khara than Requia, right now.  Since I'm 169% likely to be subsumed after that post, I think she's the one to look at next round.

I definitely hope it helps, because I signed my own death warrant writing it.

And seriously, if you're abstaining at this point in the game (with the exception of Jenne) just give it some thought.

Okay, abstaining is all well and good for the first few rounds, but are we going to just wait for the Spiders to come out and say "Oh hey, that's me, yep, subsuming your mans."

So, since keeping quiet seems to be the norm for this game, I will talk extensively about the leads I'll be working with.

So BDS is a known Discordian.  Blight's advice to the cabal not add BDS seems sound and unlikely to be a ploy.  I don't think it clears him, but I think it's sufficient to believe he's a citizen.  Freeky did point out that as Roger's housemate, she's not likely to be able to hide something from him.  My guess is either citizen or discordian for her.  Jenne is away for the week, and her vote will be Abstain - if she were a Discordian or a Spider, that would mean her picks would be messed up when her turn came around, so I'm guessing citizen.

I am a citizen.

Following that, we have, as potentials:

Discordians:  BDS, Freeky
Citizens:  Myself, Jenne, Blight
Unknown:  Luna, Requia, Villager, Khara

Villager is impossible to read, at this point, because she's absent.  I would hazard a guess that nobody would make her a Discordian because of this.  Her being a citizen would mean I'm wrong about Jenne, or Blight is playing extraorinarily deceptively.  She's been a Spider before and her method of play doesn't change.

Luna, Requia, and Khara are my likely guesses for Spiders.  We have to assume that since the Machine isn't created, the Spiders don't know who each other are.  So it's not impossible for one to have voted for another without knowing they were on the same team.  Spiders have a tendency to vote with the majority, so let's look for people whose votes have changed to reflect the popular opinion.

Oh, and before anyone pulls the whole "How do we know it's not EoC," let me just say that if you decide to vote me off, you are welcome to get subsumed one by one, because the only Discordian you know of still appears unwilling to act, and you can Abstain yourselves into a loss.

EoC,
apparently the citizens need a villain.

Thanks, Suu!

Sallie Mae, I hates them.

Grad school is a ways off, if at all.  I just don't like to think of that door as closed if it should ever come up.  But yes, I will go through federal loans this time.  I am not a naive 17 year old being fed gross misinformation.

Tell me more about #6 Suu.  I've got a bunch of Sallie Mae loans with an interest rate that's somehow not legally recognized as usury.  Paying more in student loans a month than car insurance, rent, gas, electric, internet, and cell phone combined!  Oh, and I will be until I'm 38.

Federal or private? And have you consolidated?

Private.  Saving consolidation because I was under the impression you can only do it once, and I'm keeping the idea of grad school open, which would mean more loans.

I think it's Requia.

Voting that, changing it later if necessary.

Requia - 1

Payne, it just occured to me - Templar Samson, Operator Sams.  Was that intentional?  Because the idea of the naive Operator's brother being a ridiculous badass is pretty awesome.

Listen, dregs!  Listen, lost!  Listen, wanderers, and heroes!  Listen repressed warriors, listen brave philosophers, listen questioners and brawlers!  Listen!

We are humankind.  Your Gods, whichever wrong path you follow, saw fit to throw to us ill conceived tests.  Tens of thousands of years of triumphs.  We fought beast and we mastered them.  We survived the breath of titans and the rumbling of deeply sleeping ancients.  We grasped the infinity of the sky; we've played with it.  We even fight one another, with sword and gun, with rhetoric and invention.  And still we triumph.

But there is something else.

There is a thing above mankind.  Finally, for all the suffering incurred by our own greatness we are rewarded.  We are given this because there is nothing else!

It is stronger than us.  We are a frail specimen and even as such adapted to overcome.  It can crush us even as we augment ourselves with steel flesh, for what is the servo but an extention of ourselves.

It is more relentless than us.  With a singularity of purpose it hunts.  It thinks as one and alone, together, a synchronicity and a capacity for individual thought both.

It is smarter than us.  Because it watches us, learning our brutality and ingenuity.  It improves while we grow stagnant.

This is a gift, humanity!  It is not a test like our many forgotten undertakings.  It is a gift because it is the End.

And we can kill it.

That artwork is great, Pent.

And Payne, that last one just threw off my perception of this world in such a good way.
