    B) Fury at the hardships you have had to endure. Curse you Banished Horan, what were you thinking!?

      No more fish and meat, all our family is dead, leaving us alone in what was once a prosperous farm, and now there's a Wyld storm coming to finish us off? I'm gonna vote

        Heck, I'll bite.

        Let us be wise about this. We have lived well, and in the next life we will be rewarded for our labors in this one, if only by the respect of our ancestors and our fallen family in the Underworld.

        We're feeling satisfaction at what we've built, though it's a damn shame we're not passing it on to the next generation.

        Satisfaction and pride. Bring it, Saturn.

          We're never going to Exalt if we humbly accept the inevitable or give up and roll over.

            Y'all suck at Enlightenment.

            You don't get to be a successful farmer by bitching about how hard it is! You roll up your sleeves and get to work. Bein' proud of your accomplishments and knowing satisfaction at a life well-lived doesn't mean rolling over and giving up! It can mean sublime acceptance of the fact that nothing lasts forever, or it can lead to a decision to defend what you've built because you're gonna die anyway so you might as well fight to preserve something after you're gone!

            ...but it looks like I'm outvoted. So I guess we're going Infernal or cranky Solar instead of Endings or Serenity or Battles or optimistic Solar or Lunar-Who-Protects-Her-Home-Territory.

              Guru, I get what you're saying, but if your only living relative was Banished Horan, you'd be pretty angry too.

                Hey, I'm just saying. After working all your life, you'd expect a kind and just Heaven to leave you something more to show for it than an empty house. All your achievements will eventually turn to dust, sure, but that doesn't mean you want to see it happen right before your eyes.

                I mean, what are you, some sort of wise old... guru...

                  I know, right? What a douche.

                  I'll admit, given the circumstance, it seems a bit strange to be feeling satisfaction. I'd say fury or despair, and frankly, one is way more over done than the other. So I will have to pick...

                  C) Despair at your imminent end

                    I shall defy what appears to be the inevitable by picking...
                    A) Satisfaction at the prosperity your two hands have brought

                    My reasons much resemble Wise Old Guru's. Some people find satisfaction in what they've had and earned, even in the face of the end. Some people can stare right into the oncoming storm that will wash away all they are and all they've made with a sense of peace and serenity in a life well-lived. There's nothing wrong with being pissed off about it, but facing what might be the end with positive feelings about one's life is definitely more interesting to me. Note that this does not automatically mean not doing one's damnedest to avoid dying or to preserve what one has: "I've led a long, happy life. So I'd like that to continue."

                    That said, I also don't see finding satisfaction in the prosperity one has brought as mutually exclusive with frustration at the hardships endured in bringing about that prosperity. People are allowed to feel more than one emotion at a time, guys. A & B together isn't implausible.

                      Hey, we banished him. Problem solved! No reason to hold on to our anger towards someone we will likely never meet again. Let it go.

                            [To clarify something, when I offer a choice with set alternatives like this I'll pick the response randomly, basing the ratio on the number of votes for each option. So being outvoted doesn't make your vote pointless! (Of course I say that and then the dice ends up picking the most popular option...)
                            When it's open ended (like picking the name) I might randomise, or I'll just pick whatever option I like the most. It'll depend :P]


                            Enter a command: B

                            You have selected: Fury

                              Begin cutscene:


                              Crowtato really isn't very good raw. You eat it anyway.
                              You stare deep into the forest - the tide is rising. This is it.
