    It's been a while now, can I respectfully suggest that we tally the score and move on?
    Schrödinger cat? Schrödinger wizard? Schrödinger monk?
    What's next? Schrödinger equation? HΨ=EΨ? Seriously WTF?

    If both first and second choice have equal weight then it works out to:

    Pathfinder 9 Votes
    Scout 5 Votes
    Hunter 4 Votes
    Survivalist 2 Votes
    Healer 1 Vote
    Instructor 1 Vote
    Weather Watcher 1 Vote

    If we weight first and second choice differently with say the first choice getting two points and the second getting One point then it works out to:

    Pathfinder 17 Points
    Hunter 6 Points
    Scout 5 Points
    Survivalist 3 Points
    Healer 2 Points
    Instructor 1 Point
    Weather Watcher 1 Point

    So it works out to Pathfinder and either Scout or Hunter depending on how we weight the votes.

    I think what we're doing is instant run-off, so if someone's first choice doesn't win, then their vote counts for their second choice instead. I'm not sure if we are doing that, though, so maybe you're right.

    We have to skill points to distribute basically.
    Everyone voted for the first and the second skillpoint.

    Right now i have a clear winner for 1 point in Pathfinder and the second in Scout.


    The next step is a bit more difficult. We get 8 points to spend on 9 different skills. I am not sure on how to vote for that.

    The skills are:

    Fighter, Hunter, Healer, Instructor, Pathfinder, Scout, Weather Watcher, Survivalist, Cook

    This is what i would suggest:

    I give out a few different arrays of skill point distribution and we vote if we want a focused or a broad skill set or something in between. After we have the array we vote what skill get's the points. Does this sound okay?

    The natural cap of a skill is 6. After this step we can add one more point to one of the patrol skills (on of the above beside Cook) and then we have a step called Tally where each skill that got activated will get another +1. This is the final value of the skill.

    The arrays i think make sense are:

    [1] 5 - 3
    [2] 4 - 2 - 2
    [3] 3 - 3 - 2
    [4] 2 - 2 - 2 -2 :
    [5] 2 - 2 - 2 - 1 - 1
    [6] 2 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1

    A wide array of skills in general is usefull because you get more out of the Tally. Also this is a mouse that is supposed to be able to work on missions alone so keep that in mind.
    He still could put it all really focused though.

    To help you, here we have the skills right now

    Pathfinder 2
    Scout 1
    Apiarist 1
    Insectrist 1
    Smith 1

    Edit: I forgot a Step! Shame on me. Besides voting for the Skill array above please also vote for
    "How do you convince other Mice that you are right or to do what you need?"
    In this step we get a social skill.
    Chose on of this skills:
    Orator - Talking to groups of mice and making big speeches
    Persuader - talking to a single mouse to make him to your wish
    Deciver - verbal tricks and other naughty stuff. Bascialy the two other skills are being honest and nice to other mice, this one is lying, intimidating or fast talking

    We have to vote for 1 social skill and for one array.

    I am sorry but there are no more opportunities to get points in the "crafty" skills like Apiarist and Insectrist.
    The only skills we still can get points in are the Patrol Skills, but we will get to that later.

    Okay i try again.

    Right now we are doing two steps at once.

    The first is

    "What do you do to convince others that you are right and to do what you want"

    In this step we have to choose one social skill from
    Persuader
    Orator
    Deciver


    --------------------------------------------------

    The second step is called
    "What kind of experience do you have in the Guard?"

    In this step we get 8 points that we can spend on a group of skills called the Patrol skills (and Cook, because that's what you can choose extra as a Patrol guard)

    The Patrol skills are the skills most often used in conflicts in the game.
    They are
    Fighter, Hunter, Survivalist, Weather Watcher, Pathfinder, Scout, Instructor and Healer

    To make voting easier we will vote on that as a two step process. At first we choose if we want to spend them focused or spread. In the next round we will vote for the skills to give points too.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    So for this step we will vote for a social skill and one of the arrays i posted above.

    Is this clear now?

    Persuader, because it seems the best option for a single honest mouse.

    4, I like the mix between spread and focus, this way all our other votes determined what will be 'focused' on, while this(and next) one give us the baseline.
    In addition it will make the next vote a lot easier as we won't have to worry about orders.

    In my playgroup, persuader is great, while orator is rarely useful, and nobody even has points in deceiver, being honest guard mice. Another reason my vote goes to persuader is that I don't see our mouse being particularly good at the other two, looking at the rest of what we've picked for him. As for the arrays of skills, I vote array 3, putting in 3 points to both fighter and hunter, and 2 in scout. I like the idea that our fairly youthful, able-bodied guard mouse is adept at combating wild animals and other mice alike. I chose scout because it yet again fits our theme and is quite useful for many more things than just, well, scouting.
    I like goblins.

    So array five is leading with 2 votes more than 2 and 4. I will give this until this afternoon and then we can talk about what skills to buy with this points.

    Sop it's Array 5 2 - 2 - 2 - 1 - 1

    And we can spend these on

    Fighter, Hunter, Scout, Pathfinder, Instructor, Healer, Weather Watcher, Survivalist, Cook


    I think anyone should rate 5 skills with ranks 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest) and i will count these together to get what skills got the most votes etc. etc. etc.

    We already have 2 points in pathfinder and 1 in scout. Let the voting continue.

    I vote

    Survivalist 5
    Healer 4
    Scout 3
    Hunter 2
    Pathfinder 1
