Main Witch Discussion Topic

Preempting things a bit here, but once the opening chaos of a new POI dies down and she picks someone, let's move the main discussion to here, and possibly create a thread just for the sake of recording the e-mails between the witch and her manager.

Just reposting here, I would like to collect the names of her candidates for the "What we know section." (Someone who got an email saying she was considering you)

I am being considered.
If you ever need to ask the questions "Am I needed? Should I help them?" The answer is always yes. Always.

As am I. She doesn't even seem to be holding my having a Soul against me. Equal opportunities employer, that witch.

I notice we're both in the UK...

I think being equal opportunities is a requirement for a political party. She doesn't want to lose the presidency on a technicality.

That's true... what did you suggest as your recruitment strategy?

Use of a viral marketing campaign spread through social media. I tried to give it evil overtones by saying anyone who didn't support us would be "dealt with."

Pretty much the same from me, with a side order of free health care and instilling rewards for true loyalty.

Could do. Have to be careful though, going that meta could create a logic bomb.

Well, as far as observations on the new POI go, I give her a very high threat level. Not to us per se; she doesn't seem to be able to cast magic over standard TCP/IP, but her skill as a planner is likely very high, and while she seems to be easily annoyed, she has herself professed the belief that evil is calm and calculating.

Our main advantage is our knowledge of superior technology and social climate, plus our more comprehensive knowledge of the situation. With these two things, I think the hivemind should be able to keep her in check for now.

Oh crap. Anyone want to start up photoshop? Obviously this absolutely MUST be done by someone.

And now, I'm asking my eternal question: what do we do after one of us becomes the manager? Mr. A can't seriously make us help her actually run for president. :?

What if all this set up as an ARG turns out to be an attempt to make an internet only candidate?

That would be wicked.

Then, at least we'd have The Most Triumphant Example for a Manipulative Bastard. :gurt:

Yea, I'd vote for them. But then, I'm obsessed with planning and manipulation tropes...

Yea, I'm also apparently still under consideration at the moment. I think the plot to make the Wall Of Text Chessmaster battle between me and Shaner so long that the Witch forgot what we were fighting over worked for the time being.
