I will be linking to the appropriate comms later.  I don't quite know what to suggest people do.  I will probably post a link at the new new Boolprop later, but meanwhile, I'd recommend that you comment below.

Cecil admitting the possibility that Max may be right-ish? The poison is clearly affecting his brain.

YAY SPARKLIES!

Sweet jeebus, get Duessa and Cypress in a room together and the whole world is doomed.

Wait, the Pit Beasts can fail to eat someone? But Ermintrude is HUNGRY!

Cecil acting. Never thought I'd see the day!

And it looks like Cecil's running out of Places to Annex Before Doing That Thing He Does Not Do. Good times!

Max is right-ish about the fact that Cecil can't possibly have anticipated the many problems he'll run into. The way I look at it, he may be clever, but he isn't going to think in terms of religious hypocrisy and slow Borgia-style poison.

Thank you for the sparklies!

I think Cypress is much more intelligent than Duessa. He's more focused, and he doesn't need to use a slow-acting poison. I'm trying to imagine what he'd be like in the Middle Ages or early Renaissance.

The Pit Beasts can fail to eat someone. In fact, you can ask your own Sim to jump into the Pit and they don't always die (plus if they survive, they get whopping 150 XP.)

Yeah, that's a funny one. I often haven't played the quest yet, or not with a specific hero, so I don't always know where it's going. When I saw that Cecil was going to have to act with Tarleton AND tolerate Tarleton's spitting in his face--"dear God, how do I write this one up?"

He's already annexed Snordwich by now, so he's closing in on it. Who knows what happens next? (Seriously. I don't know.)

Cypress during the Renaissance would be a lot like Cypress NOT during the Renaissance. He just draws a straight line from Where He Is to What He Wants, and deals with whatever is on his line in a Very Final Way. No, slow poison isn't his way at all--a dagger to the chest is much faster and more satisfying.

Cypress would find many Renaissance methods very satisfying, I think. There's a short laundry list of 'em here: http://www.pbs.org/empires/medici/medici/murder.html Enlightening, I thought, especially the last one, which I really wouldn't put beyond Cypress.

I have to say I'm very relieved with Duessa's fate, she really was a heinous one! I was freaking out when she climbed up and claimed she should be let walk away. No way, dudette! And then I felt like a bad person, but she did bring it upon herself. (It's neat that the pit beast may fail eating someone, though.)

I had to giggle at the Sparkling (Sleeping) Prince. And feel a little bit bad for him at the same time. All that sparkling, and he still couldn't run Puritania as well as Cecil does.

Cecil acting looked like fun! Those faces he made were definitely giggle-worthy, too. But apparently he managed just great anyway.

So it looks like it's going well, then, with the annexing and all. But yet dragon slaying ahead? Well that's bound to be fun!

Phew! Glad that Cecil is free of Duessa. She WOULD climb out of the pit wouldn't she? Yay for finding a cure for the poison!

Poor Redcross too...being duped into marriage. At least he was able to get out of it before it was too late! I hope he figures out that Una is the one for him soon!

LOL at the play. I think your bard is lucky to have lived through it!

Great chapter Prof! Looking forward to the next one!
