Spoiler: Rules (click to show/hide)
Its 1985. Reagan is president, the Cold War still looms quietly while the war on drugs is in full effect, and everyone fears the satanists next door. More than ever before the populace is convinced of a secret undercurrent of malevolent, drug addled devil worship hiding just beneath the idyllic surface of the rural heartlands. As though a self fulfilling prophecy, their paranoia drives many to investigate the occult. Some lose themselves within it.

You are all lost people. The poor, the ostracized, the seekers of purpose, and those with holes in their heart. Would-be students of the esoteric arts, the disenfranchised scrabbling for power, the bored, the thoughtless, the perverse, the insane. Something has brought you here, to the basement of this abandoned building with others like you, and together you aim to sate your endless thirsts.

You have found what you need; ancient texts of lost names, manuals of forgotten gods and things from beyond the stars. The ritual has been prepared, your mingled blood rests in the bone chalice, and all that remains is the sigil and the name to be chanted. You huddle around the odd leather tome and flip through fragile, time-yellowed pages, deciding once and for all which being to pledge your loyalty to.

The dog behind the man behind the beard.
Immortality like that would be even more game breaking than four Aaron's in one place.
You're both so obviously scum that this is a surprisingly difficult decision.

(1) You start forward with determination and certainty. You carry this determination with you right into the gaping crater that opens under your feet. You fall into a pit. The sounds of combat above dim, along with the light from the suns. In the quiet below, you hear some other noises instead.

When you say list in order, do you mean in the order you provide or highest to lowest or what?

Also, make sure I'm recording this, in case something interesting happens.

I would say you should, yeah. If I see any cell phones I'll assume you're talking about mobile phones that are period accurate.

The scholar in red looks to be our clear winner.  Any last minute votes, give them now.

I would ask why fire can burn two men to death without getting hot enough to burn a book, but then I read "INEXTINGUISHABLE RUNNING KAMIKAZE RADIOACTIVE FLAMING ZOMBIE" and realized that logic, reason, and physics are all occupied with crying in the corner right now.
