We don't know this Prophet, we do know Barty.

1) This Prophet is definitely not a normal Orchid, given the lore we know for them. Do we want to put things back to status quo?

2) Barty hasn't really done anything to harm us directly unless we attacked him first...

3) Revenge isn't always a good idea.

I'd rather have these Orchids live their lives as they wish and go after Barty. Selling us as slaves? He should pay with his life!

I'd rather lose Barty and get the Prophet. I'm not that invested in Barty, he's a d*ck but it's just not worth my time. Being part of a revolution to restore an entire society to much better ideals? Yeah, that sounds pretty good to me.

ATTACK!

Barty sold us as slave and poisoned our fri... our comra... our tagalong. Ok, this does not sound as dramatic as i intended, but this guy is SUCH A DICK, UGH.

I say let's go for Barty, who cares about this "prophet" anyway ?

Not once has Barty ever done anything to us that we didn't deserve.

The prophet and her guards on the other hand... "They​ can take more"...

Hmmm... on the one hand, I do hate Barty. On the other hand, our new "friends" are also terrible.

Do we work for a bunch of guys who live in a basement, or do we work for ourselves?

We don't really have a reason to care about this Orchid, and helping her could give us a powerful ally. Barty, on the other hand...Barty has this coming.

Stick with the more reliable ally... The prophet just sees us as arena entertainment. I'm on the side of those resisting the prophet.

Barty didn't do anything drastic to us. He put us to sleep and then sold us, but didn't go out of his way to hurt us, considering we -were- the ones (okay, hanger-ons) who attacked him first. In fact, we could be thankful we didn't have our throats slit while asleep.

Not that I would be adverse to a little payback if we come across him in the future, but honestly, look at what revenge did to the Quatryl. Our original intention was to find adventure not revenge, right?

I am more in favor of getting rid of this Prophet if she has been encouraging slave trade.

I'm tired of others controlling our fate. Let's attack the prophet and gain back some autonomy.

I hope a close vote will mean we get to kill the Orchid *and* kill Barty.

Wow I see that as of this moment the vote is very close. This to me means that Issac is placing good, non-obvious choices on us. Well done!

If you think about this whole thing from Barty's point of view, I don't think he did anything that he didn't have to to ensure his own survival, which is what we have been trying to do this whole time too. I don't think Barty would have harmed us had we not repeatedly, and foolishly, sided with Dreyl. Did we really expect him to sit and be nice after we allowed Dreyl to try and kill him over and over? Especially in the middle of a storm...while he was trying to navigate the ship and save all of our lives while a battle with elementals was raging behind him, while Dreyl was still trying to get to him and kill him? That's just silly, to put it mildly.

Also, if you are angry about being sold into slavery, why not kill the "masters?" If there is no one to buy the slaves, there will be no slavers to sell them into slavery in the first place. The Prophet has put us into harms way more than Barty, even though he had more cause to. We should just kill the Prophet, who is to say that "negotiating" with her will lead us anywhere but back into chains anyway? She doesn't exactly strike me as the trustworthy type. I think to be blinded by misguided rage at Barty and trusting the Prophet to lead us to him would be a "poor" decision, as Isaac has put it before.

I don't really care one way or another about orchid politics.

Barty crossed us. That cannot stand.

We seem to be at a little disadvantage right now as we don't really know anything about this Orchid. Maybe we can get some information on Barty and look for an opportunity to take the Orchid out. After all, she thought it would be fun to throw us in the arena to fight to the death. ninja

If we let Barty get away, maybe we chase him down in November when the bonus scenarios come out

Slavers are despicable. We should kill the prophet and put an end to her reign of terror.

Barty is one guy who is kind of a dick. This prophet is institutionalized evil. The choice seems obvious to me - we get rid of the slave master and we help tons of people. We kill Barty, maybe we help ourselves. And given the way this has all gone so far, we probably don't.

Let's kill the bad guy in front of us and worry about petty revenge later.
