    Well now, dang. Part of this may come down to the final roll, then.

    With the scores as they stand, barring something utterly crazy happening, Sam is guaranteed to gain at least 1 SP, so she will be a winner, probably the winner. But there's some possibilities depending on how many VP the last roll is worth.

    If it's worth 4 or more VP, Alice could still win the episode if she gains VP and Sam doesn't, in which case the game ends in a tie.
    If it's worth 3 VP exactly, Alice could tie the episode if she gains VP and Sam doesn't, which doesn't stop Sam from winning the game on the whole, but does give Alice a shot at changing Ophelia's last ability. And if she manages to do that and give Ophelia Shameless, I think she'd consider that a pyrrhic victory of sorts.
    If it's worth 2 VP or less, it doesn't matter and Sam just wins in all regards.

    Not exactly great odds for Alice, but honestly a bit better than I was expecting.

    If no reaction from Sam is forthcoming, I suppose so.

    I'd intended to, for once, but RL illness made issues. Honestly it's probably just as well given what I'd had planned for Sam.

    ...wow. Holy crap, Alice got a 1 on that roll, but so did Sam, and Emma fell just 1 point behind her. Goddamn, that's a close final roll. And a tie ending. That is going to make for a weird epilogue.

    Anyway, shouldn't we get the reveal of what Ophelia's last ability is here ? I know it's in the slot that Alice has Shameless, but not what it is.

    As for what to apply to the roll-off, well, I've still got Thaw Out going (yay, saving that for the end actually doing what I hoped!), which works whether we go with Allure or Luck. Besides that though it depends on what you'll give me to the roll.

    I'd think if I go Allure, I could apply both Shameless itself (obviously applies to influencing Ophelia to become such) and Touchy-Feely (closely related, Alice gets feely whenever she's trying to use her shameless charms), for a +5 total. For Luck I could technically get better if somehow get both Accident-Prone and Peeping Tom apply, but I'm struggling to think how to justify them... maybe Accident-Prone because accidents could cause clothes get to torn, and Peeping Tom... being friends with someone who's such a peeping tom has made Ophelia feel more at ease with the idea of people seeing more of her?

    Yeah, won't blame you at all if you say no to the Luck options, I'm stretching there for sure.

    Okay. Though, you kind of need it anyway for if Alice fails to change it, right? And so if the others want to support it they can justify how things apply?

    And yeah, not surprised there. In that case Alice can get the same to both, so may as well go with the more appropriate Allure. Thaw Out, Shameless, Touchy-Feely = +5.

    Strangely appropriate for Alice to be trying to change, since that's like, the opposite of her entire character.

    Hm, I have currently set Alice to rolling Allure, but could change I suppose, I get the same modifier either way. Although, looking at your abilities, would Maiden's Garb apply? IIRC you have it as too revealing to be worn at school, right?

    By my count, you have one Contingency Plan and both Just as Planned unused. Also, if you could somehow justify Honor Student, I suppose there's Non-Sequitur to turn skill into allure/luck.

    Ophelia's thaw out is replaced with shameless.

    Also interesting note, I remember my whole point of keeping VP from each episode was to serve as a tiebreak. So, Alice may just outright win.

    ...no way.

    Honestly, personal gut opinion, I'd kinda feel bad about that. After thinking that the absolute worst that Sam could do was tie, and her leading the whole game by a mile, and the fact that she'd probably just be the winner (either outright or by VP tiebreaker) had Vecna not missed so many scenes in episode 8, it'd feel like she was cheated if Alice suddenly just won outright by that slimmest of margins.

    Don't feel bad. If Sam had won this roll I would've dropped the game, maybe with a final RP post about Sam moving away that I was semi-setting up through the episode. I shouldn't have played her in a serious game in the first place, and it was more about making a point about JaP to start than anything else. Alice earned the win, even if the dice and mechanics disagreed (EDIT: WHICH THEY DIDN'T, IT SHOULD BE SAID). Sam almost maybe might have stolen a win by gaming the system instead of roleplaying and having fun. For the kind of fun that playing Sam was, knowing Sam would've won if I'd not abandoned the game for a month is fun enough. For the kind of fun that was watching the actual relationship develop between Alice and Ophelia, knowing Alice won in the end is also fun enough.

    Now go be useless lesbians with your love elemental girlfriend.

    Objectively, both true and fair. But that's why I said it was a personal gut feeling - it's a subjective reaction on my part.

    If that's what you were planning and how you feel, alright, I can accept that. Though I wonder if you're seeing something I'm not when you talk about Alice and Ophelia's relationship, since honestly, I don't feel like I ever did anything special with her. With Tanya over in the other game I put in effort thinking over her character and how to play her throughout the game; with Alice the thought process never went too much beyond "well, I made Tanya kind of a prude, so playing a pervert this time might be a fun change of pace." And, like I think all of us at this point, I definitely feel like I've kind of been coasting to the finish line for a little while now, aside from occasionally wracking my brain for how to get her harder bonuses to rolls.
