I am biased in this, but my vote is for Drop. I like all the Characters, each had something unique to bring to the adventure, whether for good or ill, and each has a place in my heart. Yet, Drop takes the biggest piece because in a lot of ways I am Drop. Spent most of my early life thinking I was cursed; no friends, etc. Long story short, he gave me the most feels, and I just want to hug him so much. Kudos Johnny, masterfully played!

To be honest, I stopped listening around ep.28 so I don't have a full season perspective, but my most consistent favourite was always Vinnie for as long as I could pay attention to the story and show. It mostly comes down to Lauren staying in character in a way that was tonally correct and engaging for the character and the first half of the season. Vinnie brought a feel good vibe to the show that I very much welcome having grown up on grimdark angsty bullshit entertainment for most of my life, needing a break from it.
The most intriguing character was certainly Drop. He brought out the best dramatic turns and I very much enjoyed seeing what initially looked like a dark comedy character get such an engaging arc towards something heavier. It took me quite a while to get on board with Skitch playing or gaming Alias, but as the story got more serious things really started coming together and it was a joy to see and hear the character in action. Lastly, while Violet didn't draw you into the fantasy, Leon is always a blast to listen to and I was sitting on needles every time he tried to more or less sabotage the campaign.
Excited for a potential season 3!

My extensive education as a Funkologist tells me that 16 votes aren't a representative sample
Well my (now somewhat hazy) memory of stats (I studied it in my 1st year at University (1990/91) and hated it, so dropped it at the end of the year) would say that a quick & dirty approximation of the mean (na) is 4 votes and that the Variance (nab) is 1 vote - by extension, the standard deviation is also 1 vote (it's the square root of the variance). If my memory is correct, that makes ALL the 4 MVPs fall within 1 standard deviation of the mean.
Or in layman's terms, it's too close to call - which you could probably SEE given there's only 2 votes in it between ALL the characters (at time of posting, anyway)! If I had a better memory of Stats I could work out the probability that Alias or Violet is actually the top dog* (it's unlikely, but not THAT improbable, given the low number of votes).
* Among the Players that is - Dr Sherry is clearly top dog overall** ** I can just hear LannaSeawolfe saying "Hyenas aren't dogs!", but Dr Sherry WAS the most dog-like character, in absence of any actual canines.
ETA: Darn it, nab isn't 1, it's 3 (because a+b=1, so b=0.75, obviously), making the standard deviation root 3 (roughly 1.732) - which only makes the result MORE bunched, statistically speaking. BAAA don't I feel sheepish! (And I'm ignoring that there have been several votes since I did the stats, so all these calculations are outdated anyway)

Still Alias. It was Drop back when he was more comedic, and that's all I thought I wanted. But the more I learned of Alias, the more I liked him. Just his way of dealing with everything without getting upset.
I both saw myself in him, and saw what I wish I was. Even if I actually am the type who would have loved to just stay in the library.
That, and, well, I kinda think he's a Disney protagonist? He didn't fit in his library job, and wanted to find a world where he did. I'm nearly certain his new adventure would be something Disney would make.
Hm, when I first voted, Vinnie was on the 4th place, which is wrong. So I voted her, resulting everyone but Drop being 2nd.
Now, Alias is on the 4th and again I am thinking about it it would be fair. Also if I switch my vote, we would have again three 2nd places ... would that be trolling? When will the poll be closed? My problem is the favourite character is such a close call.

Sad punchy monk that needs hugs and friendship is my favorite <3 I just loved his concept and I think he had most of the coolest scenes and interactions. (also he resisted hits by flexing and that's just amazing)
I'm a little disappointed Alias isn't getting more love. He was the most competent party member and I connected with his backstory/character arc more so than the others.
I think that has a lot to do with that most that like Alias also like Drop (foooor noooooo reason that I would know anything about or be guilty of) So Drop is taking many of the potential Alias votes by just a hair
Dash Sean the Ragemonster: Just made it to Charlotte and our last leg has been delayed almost an hour so we should get into Portland by like 11:45, then to Kristin's place by like almost 1. Then we gotta be at the mechanic at 8AM to get her car and it's an hour drive.

Dash Sean the Ragemonster: johnpaul is a ninja now. He has completed his training. He still can't tell Jade and Kerstin's voices apart, but he can kill them from the shadows.

Dash Sean the Ragemonster: "Excessive Finery of the Butt" was outlawed in 1994 in reaction to the "Fine Butt Menace" which claimed the lives of 13 butt aficionados.
