    …to talk to Serge and Seres.

    Rounding them up was straightforward - they showed up first at chow time, so Ash led them aside.

    "I'd like to tell you a story," she said, while they sat down to bowls of beans and stewed, formerly dried meat. "It concerns my past, and your futures."

    Seres looked a little apprehensive. Serge cocked an eyebrow, shrugged, and got down to eating. After a moment, he motioned that Ash should continue with his spoon.

    "When I was a bit older than Seres, I was settin' out to...

    Other: nongendered. You are biologically male, but since your "death", your perspective on sexuality and relationships has changed - you still feel empathy, but you do not desire companionship as you once did.

    (Just to make sure I understand this - you want Ash to talk to *both* of them about taking up the mantle? Together or separately?)

  • 18) The ruler is trying to impose a new state religion, forsaking the old polytheistic ways in favor of one god. You are a worshiper of the old gods, and this will not stand.

    19) The ruler is trying to do away with the old state religion, masking an attempt to wrest power away from the church with a thin veil of humanist rhetoric. You are a devoted member of the church, and this will not stand.

    20) The ruler has proclaimed themselves to be a god, and is demanding unheard-of tribute. You believe this supposed divinity is a lie, and mean to prove it by killing the ruler....

  • 13) The current ruler comes from a rival nation that conquered yours less than a generation ago. You would have had the throne yourself if the old line of succession had been preserved. Ergo, you are the "rightful" ruler, taking back what belongs to you.

    14) The current regent is the old ruler's spouse/consort who took power after the old ruler died. Seeing how the regent is a foreigner and their only child is too young to rule, their legitimacy has been challenged by someone else in the line of succession. Now a civil war has broken out and you have thrown in your lot with...

  • 2) The ruler's soldiers killed your parents and burned your home. Whether the ruler ordered this or even knew it happened is immaterial.

    3) You went through this whole ridiculous quest to slay a horrible monster in exchange for half the kingdom, but now the ruler refuses to pay up.

    4) Because you crave money and power and the privileges that come with money and power. Let's not kid ourselves here - on some level you believe that might makes right, and you consider yourself mighty enough to take the kingdom for yourself.

    5) You were educated in another country,...

    I'm exploring the Resident Evil games. Some I play, some I watch Let's Plays. Shlocky horror, all of it.

    Right now I'm playing Resident Evil 5 with co-op. It feels very primitive to me - in fact, if it weren't for co-op, I don't think I'd find it engaging enough to be worth dealing with the awkward controls. For some reason, I'm strongly reminded of arcade cabinet light-gun shooters....

    Lans was rigging up the water tower - Ash figured that was no job for a man with one arm.

    The tower had dried up long ago, and even the memory of water was gone from it. The plan now was to turn it into a repository for dust and rig it to fall - crushing and burning whatever happened to be below it.

    The tower was, naturally, the tallest structure in the complex. It stood about three stories off the ground, a wooden scaffold supporting a tall wooden basin with a simple wooden lid to shield the precious liquid from the sun.It had no ladder, so Ash had to climb up the scaffold
