I'm curious how you're going to kill our resident super-villain. More than that, I'm curious why Burt or Patricia would kill one another once he is dead... Lol.

Um... it should probably be a climax.   There's only one more turn left after this one.

Non-anti-climactic = double negative. Apparently, he meant climactic without saying it directly. Ah, the wonders of double negatives.

P.S. From Nawazm's version part 2, I'm worried that good ol' Burt is turning into a complete asshat and is destined to be disposed of by the more benevolent and (much) better done Patricia.

P.P.S. Michael, one thing to consider whenever we have our next game would be to drop the "kill the alone character" stipulation when there's only four people left, so that it's more a mystery of who's going to get killed. Just my opinion.

Er, as a point of fact, I noted that in the script, it says that both Patricia and Marty are both present to see the pod. How is it that Marty is alone in the spaceport when he is with Patricia looking at the pod? Did I miss something?

I'm not sure. The way I understood it, all three of them were in the hallway outside. Who knows?

Originally when I read it I thought all three were in the same place.  Then I read it again and thought it was just Patricia and Burt who were there.  On a third read, I find they are all in the same place.  

So, I must have gotten it wrong.  They are all in the same place.  

But, you know, it's pretty easy for you guys to look and make sure things are updated accurately and let me know if they aren't.  Thanks.

. I should have been a little more clearer. I wrote that Marty gets up after he speaks to Patricia and we cut to Farthing's Office. Later on, we see both Patricia and Marty there as they must've heard them fighting and decided to check what was happening. They were together in the spaceport before. Sorry about the confusion.

Actually, I think you confused me even more, although that's not exactly difficult. I blame pronouns.

Am I to understand that Patricia is the only one by herself now or is Burt the only one alone now? Or, are you saying they're all together?

I second that...and not because it is my character either. I suspect the end will go down in that office.

You can kill whomever.  Though you should have it written already.

That's code for "I'm going to kill Burt "The Scumbag" Bell. Probably.

First of all, he's a third wheel because that would leave us with one woman and one man, one good and one evil and... just because he became a tool. =)
