Question, April 5: Would you rather be Pope, Emperor, Dictator for Life or High King??

 

Whichever position gives me the most riot-free minions is the one I want. I want minions, and I'll do what I can to keep them happy.... but I'd really like all the minions... just cuz. :ph34r:

Given that it's my planet...  Guardian/Protector. ^_^

 

Treehouses galore! .... And ancient trees of course. 

 

My planet also implies it wouldn't have all that many people on it... At least in my chunk of it all. 

 

That sounds like a nice planet.

If it's anything like the spaces I used to build in SecondLife...  Yeah, it would be rather cozy and relaxing. 

 

I also mentioned the waterfalls, the hot springs, and all that with an almost perpetual spring-summer transition phase for temperatures, right? ^_^ ... And of course snow on the mountains.  Hard to snowboard on mountains without snow. ::P:

Out of these four?   (Benevolent) Dictator for Life.  You can be a dictator and still listen to the people and still find consensus.  

 

But I don't think I'm interested in the position.  It sounds like a lot of work without much in returns.

Having thought about it a bit more I quite fancy the idea of being Dictator in the Republican Roman sense.

 

You live a prosperous life as a Roman citizen.When the city is threatened by barbarian hordes you get given absolute power over everything. Command magnificent Roman Legions to defeat the enemy... and then hand power back to the senate and go back to your farm, (or in my case the painting table,) and  live to a ripe old age, respected by everybody.

 

 It's the 20th. century dictators who have given the job a bad name.

 I prefer to be addressed as "Evil High Overlord of the Multiverse"...

 

 

Watch out for guys with freaky wooden-like masks.  Apoks will getcha if you're evil.  (Wormwood reference for those that haven't played Rifts)

Question for, April 3: Did you see any bizarrely colorized Easter Bunnies or other strange Easter holiday decor this year?

I saw a package of marblized neon egg dye. That looked pretty wild.

Question, April 4: Did you get fooled by the Easter Bunny or any other pranksters this year?

Nope.

Well, High King implies that you're High King over all the kings in narnia, so I'll take that one. Narnia has talking beasts, so I get animal friends.

Space Pope.

 

It would be more of a ceremonial thing since I make it a habit to pay my respects to all local gods. I'd be a 'do whatever I dun care' Space Pope.

If I were totally in charge? And I could terraform the place? I'd prefer to be called The Magrathean.

 

I'd happily spend time building the equatorial regions, but I've got someone specific in mind for the northern fjords.

The problem with all of these is what happens next. If I were not inclined to care about what happened to said planet after my death, it wouldn't really matter which self-appointed strongman role I took. But since I do, I guess none of them?
