Well, if you're going to kill her anyway, you might as well get some answers out of her first. That's why I say A.

The results are in!

Point gun at her, demand ansers: 5
Shoot her: 1
Disarm gun, throw it away, then ask what is going on: 0
Run away: 0


We point the gun at the wounded assailant, and start demanding answers,
"WHO ARE YOU? WHO SENT YOU?"; As we look past the arrel of the gun, we see a look of fear come upon her eyes "No.. Please, god no.."; she begins crying gently. You look at her, reduced to a crying emotional wreck, she must have at least three broken ribs, and is bleeding profusley. Can she really be of any use?


What should we do?
 A: Continue the interrogation
 B: Shoot her, put her out of her misery
 C: Lower gun, attempt first aid
 D: Walk off, she is of no signififcance

PS, I promise we'll actually get somewhere after this!

Lower gun, attempt first aid: 2
Walk off, she is of no signififcance: 0

Not in the least surprising, well, on with the story!


We decide that showing feelings to someone who just tried to kill us is not a good idea, and continue with the interrogation. Shooting the gun an inch to the left of her head, we proceed to continue the barrage of questions. "WHO ARE YOU?"; "no.. please no, I can't answer you questions.. a lot of pain.." She mumbles inbetween gentle sobs; "I SAID WHO ARE YOU!", "my.. my name is sara.. sarah brown", she half-whispers "I a--" "WHO SENT YOU?", we demand, trying to ignore the half-meter wide area of red snow. She catches her breath just enough to say "they are.. over there..", and as she does, she just manages to point her arm in the right direction, before it goes limp.


I hope you lot are proud.
(okay, so it's just a story; but still!)

What should we do?
 A: Walk in the direction Sarah pointed to
 B: Scout immediate area
 C: Check Sarah is dead
 D: Conceal Sarah's body


Well, depending on your choice, this time we can go into quite a different situation!

I vote B. Even if she's not dead, she's broken. She won't try anything.

And D is just stupid. There's a giant diameter of bloody snow all around her. Concealing the body won't do anything.

Change my vote to scout the area.  We have to leave Sarah alive to rescue us later when the mad scientist is about to lower us into a pit of sharks with laser beams on their heads.  See, she's out to avenge her fathers death at the hands of the aformentioned scientist who was out to steal his non-descript research.


...actually, I just won the game.  Lock this thread please

Walk in the direction Sarah pointed to: 0
Scout immediate area: 3
Check Sarah is dead: 3
Conceal Sarah's body: 1

But changing danzik's vote breaks the tie, in favor of scouting the area.


we decide that sara is either dead or dying, and scout the immediate area; the terrain is mostly plain snow, but there are somemounds and recesses thatcould be used to hide. We almost give the area the all clear, when you see something odd; a silvery patch on an otherwise white surface. We go over and wipe the snow off, revealing a metal ball, about the size of a crouched human; it is making a faint humming sound. It is odd, but not unprecidented, it could be field equiptment, a meterological sensor, anything really; is it worth our time?


What should we do?
 A: Kick it
 B: Ignore it, and walk where Sarah ponted
 C: Look for a crack to pry it open
 D: Check sarah for interface equiptment

No, When in doubt, set something on fire.

But that's not a choice.

Sorry for the long wait, I have had a lot of coursework.

The results are in!


Kick it: 2
Ignore it, and walk where Sarah ponted: 0
Look for a crack to pry it open: 2
Check sarah for interface equiptment: 4


We decide that it might be worth checking Sarah's corpse for some kind of equiptment with which to access the device. We walk back up to her, and kneel down. We look in her front pockets, then we slowly unzip her jacket, and feel around inside it, feeling its blood saturated lining, checking for hidden pockets. And then, lifting up her shirt, we feel across her cold, bloody flesh. We withdraw our hands, partly shocked from touching the corpse. Although we found no interface equiptment, in a moment of madness we pocketed the dead woman's diamond ring from her third finger.


What should we do?

A: Go toward where she pointed
B: Put the ring back
C: Yell at the top of our lungs
D: Kiss Sarah

Okay, we have gone slightly mad, but I promise interesting consequences, whatever you choose.

Kiss the corpse, maybe we can contract some kind of super-soldier virus from her and become invincible!
