    Default Suppose Banjo HAD cast the deciding vote

    As the title says above, what if Banjo had cast the deciding vote as a last second newcomer, and voted against Hel. How do you think Hel would react? How would Loki react? What kind of effect would it have on the Goddess of Plague to know that the plan she had been hedging all her bets on has just been foiled by a puppet.

    You can place whatever dialogue you think would ensue here.

    Sincerely,
    Lord

    Banjo is a manifestation of the Snarl. As such, does not care what the gods are intending, as long as the gates come crashing down and some revenge is available for having been locked up on that beach for so long.

    If Banjo had cast the deciding vote, he'd have voted to nuke this forum along with all its Banjo threads.

    Best quote I've seen regarding Banjo and/or Banjo threads.

    Hel would obviously try to get her consolation prize : now that she has a high level dwarf vampire cleric, she can easily establish a strong vampire dominance in the dwarven society and get her ego trip from that. Durkula will gloat and inform Roy of his first target : a council of elder dwarves who rule their society and is about to gather for some reason.
    The official clerics of the Godsmoot can't deal with it because with all ushers dead it's up to them to clean up the place. The OotS is compelled to go and stop him since it's their fault it happened. They also need their cleric back and it's more or less on the way. And all the Unresolved Dramatic Tension demands a conclusion.

    So we would basically have the same story, except everyone would be complaining about the OotS being stupid to focus on a subplot instead of saving the world from destruction.

    And Banjo is a puppet.

    Actually the Snarl, if it has an opinion, is in favor of keeping the last gate open. If the Gods unmake the world, they will do so in a manner that gives the Snarl no opening to break through with. If on the other hand the last gate goes critical, there will be a period of time during which the Snarl could break out of its prison and maybe kill the Gods before they could create a new world.

    Thus it is far better for the Snarl if the last gate remains standing long enough for it to get destroyed by Xykon, or somebody else.

    Also in regards to the other posts, I was more asking what the nature of Hel's villainous breakdown will be when utterly defeated by a freaking puppet. Yes Banjo is a puppet, thats the whole point. For Hel to be defeated by Banjo would be an incredibly ignominious way for her evil plans to be utterly foiled.

    So I wanted to see what people thought her immediate reaction would be. Screaming in impotent fury? Stunned into silence?

    What do you think?

    If joining the madness will draw it to a close...

    Is Banjo a Demigod or full God? If the puppet god of puppets was a full deity, all of Hels machinations would've been for nothing.
    As for Hels reaction... I'm guessing indignation? Followed by a request for a recount, where some of the more serious Gods decide this world's gotten a bit silly and maybe they should destroy it anyway?
    This foray into banjoism has given me a headache...

    Why on earth would you assume Banjo would vote no?

    I was surprised to find no one ever pointed out Banjo most likely cannot cast a tie-breaking vote, since it would likely be opposed by Giggles.

    Not to mention the possibility of Banjo manifesting as Banjulhu.

    That's not a possibility, that's exactly what would happen!
