The vote was tied between Option 1 and Option 3, and the dice selected Option 3. I got a little I hope you enjoy me, ah, luxuriating in getting to write that scene. Because this one is such a honking big one, I'm going to allow a full week for voting, until Sunday; during the week I'll put up Option two might have Mayonne in more trouble with the court, but will give Galya time to interrogate her captive. If Carafa feeds anyone, I think it should be Mayonne since the poor elf was deprived of a meal.
But first, interrogation to see even how deeply involved in this the quarter elf is. I disagree with the having Galya impersonate Carafa, if solely for the reason that it seems likely that it would end badly with the demons easily piercing the illusions themselves if Carafa is working for them. So with all that said, my choice is a modified option two.
I agree that Galya should interrogate Carafa, and possibly devour her with the antacid that Mayonne used on her to see if her empathy is a two-way thing. The reactins from the council that Mayonne garners on having digested their Champion fully will prove more insightful I think, especially if any of them had been collaborating with Carafa. It's possible that they'll be upset with her, but that couldn't last forever and Galya will eventually be revealed to be alive sans demonic intervention to free Carafa or Carafa somehow escaping and ingesting Galya herself.
Lerkur - 1 day ago I figured as much. While the youngest is still potentially a suspect for the other stated reasons she also had one of the worst reactions to Galya supposed being converted from half elf to full elf , it's likely not for the reasons I was thinking of. We still lack solid evidence on anyone, and when I think about it, if the villain wants as many live champions as possible, Mayonne not digesting Galya doesn't clear suspicion.
Galya kept passing out anyway, so there's no guarantee nothing was done. I could ramble on with conspiracy theories, yet I doubt I'd reach a relevant conclusion. So, I'll stop for now. Though I'm curious what Carafa's side of the conversation was. Razgriz - 2 days ago fun read! Chronicle - 2 days ago Loved it!
As for what to do next, I think a bit of interrogation is in order. I'd love to see if Galya's empathy can work with her prey, so downing some of the antacids and then quickly followed by Carafa could seriously help the interrogation.
If she refuses to answer, or if keeping this ploy secret is beneficial like pretending to be someone else and keeping her voraciousness secret , Galya can just let nature take its course on her meal. However, even after looking at the clues, I'd like to squeeze Carafa through Galya before making any accusations.
I also saw someone saying to impersonate Carafa, which is an excellent idea, so I'd give my vote to that as a follow up after questioning and consuming her. No need to fear a reprisal either, since a champion's decisions aren't questioned.
