Wulfhere's comment on 2007-04-06 06:52 PM
This is exactly the sort of plot that my combat-maximized half-orc barbarian (whose strongest social skill is brute intimidation) is routinely forced to deal with. Because of that, I'm eager to inflict comparable heartburn upon my players! I love this sort of insanity!

It really could use a thorough going over and refurbishing, though. Go to Comment

dark_dragon's comment on 2007-04-07 06:05 AM
I love this plot, so gald it came up from the depth of the citadel! So much can go horribly wrong: Romiette falls for one of the PCs, the fathers duel in the street, Julian gets abducted as retribution for the steed's death. So much goodness!

The PCs would have to work sooo hard to get these two together. Organising patries, encounters and introductions, all the while keeping this totally silent from the fathers, resulting absolute hilarity for the GM!

Mind you though, the PCs would become quite the socialites after this, and would be incredibly well armed against these situations...

Then again, the easiest solution is probably to abduct them, lock them in a room and let nature takes its course... Surely three years should be enough? Go to Comment

I have that problem too! I don't dare post anything here anymore after a player looked over my shoulder and discovered my nickname. Damn that Google!

I vote for a "privileged" section in the new Citadel, simply because old time users increasingly is threatened by player discovery!

Yikes.

Wonder if a somewhat neighboring village has the same sort of thing. Certainly even the godlings mingle and when others find out the power that this one does...

Do they try it for themselves demanding it of their worshippers?

Or maybe the decide that this godling needs to be stopped, and hence the heroes are given certain powers that play to the godlings weakness. There must be some kind of weakness, there always is. :)

Interesting...
It would be best set in a frontier place, where most political power is centered in small towns.
I like it! Perfect for the Armorican Kingdoms.

4/5. Go to Comment

Actually, it is one of the reasons I tend to post things with multiple options. So they might know generally what is going on, but they never know exactly what was going on.

I also cheat. I post my stuff up after it has been dealt with by players. (Now if I could just ressurect by Fantasy Game, as nobody wants me to post up Buffy the Vampire Slayer material. Go to Comment

That comes from telling you players about a page you frequently visit. "Whatcha lookin at, man?" "Strolen's, an RPG discussion forum." "Ey, dat's neat, I wanna too." Here you go. Now I can't post anything I intend to use :( Go to Comment

I very much prefer antagonists which have a reason for doing what they do. One of my players once told me: "I find it hillarious that your bad guys are more reasonable than our supposed allies."
Which had of course nothing to do with the fact that the party were morally gray, with white and black blotches. Go to Comment

Man, if such a goddess and place existed, we'd all be SCREWED. Five outta five, good job! Say, you said this is a MINOR deity, right? Well, would it be possible for a group of incredibly powerful mages to, well, KILL Thimunai? I mean, I'd imagine that they could at least lock up her powers so she cuts it out with the rampaging.

Hmmm... I think this is just the right kinda challenge for my newest hero, John "Hellwind" Higgins! A.K.A., the Chaplain of the Flask, Most Holy Advisor of the Tavern-Keep, or in one particular inn, That Bastard who Comes in and Drinks all Me Liquor! Simply put, he's a rather jolly (and equally belligerent) war-priest whose primary past-time is- you guessed it- drinking. Either way, he pays homage to many deities of both war and of the drink, so just imagine his fully-justified sense of outrage when he finds out that the town where his favorite tavern is located is being assaulted by emissaries from a strange new faith that not only demands worship of only THEIR god but also practices human sacrifice , a practice that he considers revolting?

He's not pleased, obviously. So, he decides to challenge their representatives to a "friendly debate"about the "finer points of worship," only to be nearly slain by the power of their blood-gorged deity! Enraged by this god, whose practices he considers completely blasphemous, he calls upon the power of every god he worships, be it in battle or in the pub (or both: he takes bar fights very seriously), to help him crush this cruel young newcomer, and her disreputable source of power.

What a battle royale! Go to Comment

I like this.  Thimunai is a deity who is hard to hate if you know her backstory, which makes her a compelling villain.  I certainly hope that she can be reasoned with.  Perhaps if she were to receive a willing sacrifice of a different sort, something that would make her question her tastes or even recoil in horror . . .

Love the entire concept! Probably sneaks out of the castle often and could very well get into trouble in the city where the players must rescue her. Now the king owes and the daughter wants to leave with you. or or or or or Go to Comment
