Vox Populi Forum
*Goody Marie, Antibaptist Reformist- Yeah, we've loved those Antibaptists in the past. Always so friendly, not prone to invading cities and killing those they disagree with. She'll hate Goody Trieste. If we pick her, we're hosed.
*Goody Sade, Loopy wife of the known to be deceased Governor-General: Great, a crazy old biddy who probably doesn't accept her husband's death and will want to be treated like a Queen... or, at lest a Governess. If we pick her, we're hosed.
*Goody Trieste, Papist Reactionary: Yeah, we've loved those Papists in the past. Always so friendly, not prone to invading cities and killing those they disagree with. She'll hate Goody Marie. If we pick her, we're hosed.
I say we let the Lady's pick their own representative and let the scum rise to the top?
Again, we have the Rahmordial logic to contend with. What value can each man have? I really don't know, that's why I discussed cargo first.
*Phrenologist, victim of Russian torture: A dude who reads the bumps on heads with a chip on his shoulder. Is this guy supposed to be a doctor or a judge? What else would we do with a dude who thinks he can predict one by one's lumpy skull?
*Defrocked Priest, victim of Spanish torture: Why was he defrocked? Let's guess he's a heretic with a chip on his shoulder. Is this defrocked guy the priest for the colony? They're so doomed! Assume he's a lapsed Papist? Reformist leanings?
*Futuricite, victim of Dutch torture: Great, a "Seer." IT'S BARTHOLOMEU DIAZ! Bailey will go ape, Leon will be so happy to see his friend again. If it's not Diaz, then, do we want to carry around a Prophet of Doom with a chip on his shoulder? The man's a warlock!
*Limping Scalawag, victim of English torture: Why do we need a crippled man with a chip on his shoulder? Scalawag? What's his secret? Ugh, he's probably the one who's really rich...
*Town Crier, victim of Robespierre’s torture: A propagandist with a chip on his shoulder. Depending on this man's political leanings he could be among the more useful, or more dangerous of the specialists. We need to keep him happy, else he can turn the crews against us, but I think we should take him.
*Occult Astronomer, victim of Carpathian torture: Another witch/mystic with a chip on his shoulder? On the other hand, his readings of the stars could be useful for navigation, weather prediction, writing almanacs, etc. I'd probably rather take this guy that the Fururicite. Unless the Futuricite is Diaz, in which case, Leon says, "Welcome aboard, to the Third Greatest Explorer in the World!"
*Elderly Suffragette, victim of Serbian torture: A woman who wants women to have more power and who has a chip on her shoulder? Let's make her the spokesperson for the Ladies! That'll show Goodies Marie, Sade and Trieste!
