You're way too young for that, Mary.
Can we send her off with Gustav? Please?
Nnnnooooo. We are not sending anyone off with that liar and cheat.
The idea of Zelda having such a potty mouth is inmensely amusing.
That said, I agree.
From a moral standpoint, get the shit out of here Gustav. From a practical standpoint, we have enough happiness and a food situation to take care of, so get the shit out of here Gustav.
Edit: Oh, the vote. I say we finish up with our defense tech tree and after that start on the food one. The tech after signaling (or the one after it) would give us a steady flow of incoming friendly zombies, but if we can't feed them there is no point.
Nobody up for the magical caravan girls? Okaaay...
You tell him, Zelda.
Anyway, zombie king continues with his bartending duties while I set Javert, Link, and Snark on researching some antivenom to defend ourselves against the irredeemably evil human-devouring undead and - say what?
IT WAS A JOKE, ZOMBIE KING
IT WAS A GODDAMNED JOKE
though I guess we brought this on ourselves by recruiting the fucking undead over to our cause orz
Well, zombies are people too, at least the friendly ones. They work for us, even.
Let him open the church. What is there to lose anyway?
Holy shit, Zombie King...
You know what, let him have his church. Once I've figured out how to make a nuclear bomb out of this twig and a can of Dr.Peppers, we'll be able to blow up the zombie church should it get out of hand.
Lovely ladies, going for a song...
Gotta lot of callers but they never stay for long...
Wait, what? No no no no no no no. No.
I didn't expect past survivors of all people to trust these fucking undead.
((Ah, gotcha. We'll just say Logan has no idea since she's been helping out with the reclamation efforts and hasn't meet him yet.))
((Edit: Missed a few posts there, sorry!))
I didn't know zombies had religion. Eh, I'm not entirely sure giving him the church is a good idea, but the guy has been holding up his part of whatever deal we worked out with him. Give him the church, but keep a close eye on him.
It's okay to want to be cautious around them, but hey. They are the ones that produce our food, they are the ones that pour our booze, and they are the ones that watch our asses at the fucking fort. Don't you think it's only fair?
Give him the church. :D
HELL NO. NO CHURCH FOR THE ZOMBIE KING.
Guys the last thing we need is people believing the zombie condition is a godsend rather than a curse. Vote no oh god please vote no and be sensible.
Listen when I tell you nothing good comes out of turning zombism into a religion - next thing you know people will be deliberately throwing themselves to the hordes to join them. THERE IS NOTHING GOOD THAT CAN COME FROM THIS.
Where is Javert he's sensible at least.
Storytime? Yay! What are we reading? I hope it has pictures! I want to read aloud!

Someone needs the drunk posting achievement!
... The fuck am I reading?
Let me make this more clear then:
What is the single most genre blind thing we could do at the moment?
Like: Whats going to render it more likely people (actual useful people NOT THE ZOMBIES) will throw themselves to the hordes? By implanting the idea in their heads that the zombies are one big happy family. That's what this is going to lead to, and I want no part of it.
Exactly. You guys might as well walk into the basement when the killer's on the loose, or split up in the dark.
Perhaps you might not go insane, but think of your fellow survivors! Do you want your last memory of Waffles to be him throwing his fluffy little self into the waiting mouth of a disgusting zombie? Do you want to live with the fact that you were responsible for a little girl's death? Can you imagine Javert committing suicide?
...maybe scratch that last one. But the point stands!
Do you not want to have storytime together, Waffles and Javert? I just think it would be fun to read together. It's so hard to find good books.
Read on your own, if you want to, but this is a story time you don't want to be part of.
(Javert was asleep. Javert apparently needs a lot of sleep over New Years because Christ in a can, I can't remember feeling this tired for a long while.)
Are you all from the barricades?! MON DIEU, non. I come back from arresting one miscreant and the creature we formerly align against... non. To preach is a sacred trust and a murderer deserves no such crown. This is madness. You will abandon all sense just to be... 'inclusive'. Non.
We fight these creatures. We fight them and now you will permit them to preach to serve their cause with government sanction. This is senseless. It is madness. The child I might expect this from, but... This... this is equivalent to the king in la belle France inviting rebels to preach to his soldiers.
... That is exactly how the First Revolution came to be. You modern people do not read history.
(Nitpicky note; he means when the King of France sent soldiers to aid the Americans in the War of Independence, in fighting alongside liberalists, the soldiers picked up the ideology and when the revolution struck in France, several high-ranking officers and foot soldiers went and joined the rebels, eventually bringing down the monarchy.)
If you insist, but I will decide on the book. You do not seem to have healthy habits, child.
(I would like to know if I keep count right this is actually the first time Javert has shouted anything rather than just emphasize a word. As a bit of interesting bonus info; in TAC Javert doesn't shout except during his breakdown in Javert's Suicide.)
There was a time we killed the king,
We tried to change the world too fast.
Now we have got another king,
He's no better than the last!
This is the land we fought for liberty--
Now when we fight, we fight for bread!
Here is the thing about equality:
Everyone's equal when they're dead.
Take your place!
Take your chance!
Vive la France!
Vive la France!
Ahem. I mean, as royalty myself, I obviously agree with Javert that such rebellious ideas will eat our community from the inside out, and you rebels will have only yourselves to blame when you fall.
Viva le Undead - 5 (Kaneda, Snark, Sarasha/Logan, EvilFuzzy9/Ayumu, Ozzo/Mary)
Down with the rebellion! - 3 (Jacquelle/Zelda, Davian Korran/Javert, soundlyParanoid/Waffles)
Bar survivors changing their mind en masse, looks like we'll be letting the zombie king regain his throne as the rightful leader of the undead! Guess it really was a bad idea to take in the zombies and let them spread their ideology amongst our people, eh?
In any case, I'll leave this vote open for a little longer to see if anybody wants to change their vote. :>
..I realize I'm not part of the current story, but if my outside reading is of any salt, I have to say...
Anyone dumb enough to throw themselves into the zombies and get eaten because of zombie brainwashing, they were not useful members to your cause to begin with. This might be nature's way of improving the genes of your survivors. :D
(I'll just ask that everyone remembers they're siding with MARY here XD. Who was fine with feeding Kaneda to Dr. Jerk.)
Oh, and before it's stops being the new year over here (wait what am I saying it won't stop being the new year for 364 more days), HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY! What better way to celebrate than to stop by the church for a nice new year's sermon by our brand spanking new preacher? Which is totally going to happen if nobody changes their vote sooooon~
She also serves as the ammunition of the gun we will use to put down the zombie church if they get out of hand, so we would do well to appease her!
(Well, Javert, any last words?)
Oui. I shall map out the reservoirs for when the time comes.
A second life was interesting while it lasted.
If you guys get Javert killed, Zelda is never going to forgive you.
This might be a good time to remind everybody that since we have so many Rebuild 2 veterans in here, there will be no do-overs, no save-scumming, and no regrets.
...maybe not that last one, but my point still stands. :D
Of course, nothing says that we all can't be reborn in, perhaps, a different LP. Stranger things have happened.
As long as I'm not the preacher, s'all good. Carry on, you guys >:)
At this rate we're going to run out of zombie games to put our survivors in. xD
Naught BUT regrets. And I am seriously worried what we're getting voted into you're THIS hesitant to let it pass. Goddamnit, democracy XD
When we do we should just drop the game and have a social forum. We could RP to our heart's content and maybe have a mafia game or something.
And don't look at me on that one, sadly. Not only don't I know any zombie games, but I already swore to Snark I was doing a Zafehouse-XCOM-Rebuildverse angled playthrough of Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura after my current endeavour.
Alas, no. Zafehouse and Rebuild XD.
Is it that risky? I think I did this once with no problems.
Oh well, if it will keep Zelda, Waffles and Javvie from whining, I'll change my vote. Nothing personal, working-class zombies.
...I need to stop drinking while on the computer/being on the computer while drunk, holy shit.
The reason it was rather... typoed (just a little bit) is because it was dark and I couldn't see the keys.
Actually, I think I wanted to make a terrible joke about loyally kicking Snark's side or something. drunk!Me is a mistery.
I'm actually surprised how coherent it was in terms of there being very little doubt what you were saying. And I wouldn't mind Javert, he gets funny where civil rights are concerned. Must be some kind of childhood trauma.
Mind you, I have no idea what will or won't happen. I looked up 'preacher zombie Rebuild 2' and found a guide that mentioned this dilemma when trying to get why Umazes didn't want to be a preacher, but it was just the image here, so I have NO idea what happens after this, if anything.
Even though Kaneda switched her vote to desist, we still have a majority vote for preacher! zombie king. So we let him set up his church, whereupon he proceeded to brainwash everybody into throwing themselves into the zombies' mouths- wait what?
Everybody's happy? Uh. Well. Carry on then.
And that is how you pacify the masses~
(Now, was that so bad?)
(WHAT? But you were so upset before!)
Oui. This is the first step towards disaster. I hope I can safeguard the citizens from their own foolish delusions when the time comes.
(... cheery, are we?)
Joy has no place in pursuing one's duties. But if you must know, I find it personally repulsive to allow that creature in the house of le Bon Dieu in the first place.
(Says the guy who filled a church with guillotines.)
(... it must be very easy to be you.)
Oui. C'est ca. Regardless, all this subversion is a clear sign 24601 lurks somewhere, spreading his diseased ideals. I must make efforts to find him and stop him before it is too late.
(Javert, about Valjean... what just happened to your hair?)
I am sure I do not know what you mean. Now, out of my way,
Separate names with a comma.
