(CLOSED SIGNUPS - New Rules, New Adventures (A Free-plot RP)) Ace's Bar "...You guys gave it enough thought yet?" Said a laid-back Ace as the sound of his billiards balls knocking against each other was heard immediately afterwards. He seemed more focused on the game than the group at one side as well as the still-open portals on the other. "Let me give you the choice one more time, to be clear. You pick the portal on the left, you are choosing to find a way to grow stronger and fight against the Tyrant. The door will be left open for the time you are gone, and once his empire grows vast enough, he'll slowly spread across other universes. The more time you spend to become stronger, the more that becomes at risk. You pick the portal on the right, however, the universe locks in place, and his empire crumbles once it can no longer spread out. You'll be safe from it to live wherever you want, and the Tyrant will have to start from scratch all over again, leaving him vulnerable, but this world will be destroyed as a result. ...You can also choose to leave here and pretend I was never here. But I won't be giving this offer out again once you leave." Ace explained. Simon looked down to the ground in contemplation, and looked at the two portals. They both serve to be equally tempting; they could finally get the advantage they want after all this fighting, but they could also just avoid the fight altogether. Both choices seemed good at the moment. "...Umm...What happens if some of us choose one, while everyone else chooses the other?" He asked the Poolist, who then took his cigar out of his mouth again. "...Well, obviously the way in and out of this world can't be both open and locked at the same time. Since there's seven of you fellas, I'd wager we go by Majority Rules. If four chooses to shut the door and three take the other way, the door's probably gonna be shut whether those three wanted it or not. In the unlikely event of a tie...Ehh, I might flip a coin or something." Ace said nonchalantly. Something about this Ace fellow bothered Simon. He's doing them a favor, and at least seems to have good intentions, but something about the way he talks, that laid-back attitude in the face of what he's actually saying, ...it just feels off. Still, This decision was now more important to the resistance than ever. Now they have to choose with the popular vote in mind as the key role. This in mind, Simon simply chose to wait, and see what the others have to say about this.
