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
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!

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.

Actually a real-world fungus, just heard about it. A fungus that tastes well and all, no ill effects. UNLESS you consume some beverage, even 3 (three) days after eating it. Then you become really sick, pains, vomiting, all the fancy stuff. Was really used to cure alcoholism. May be a joke or to make sure the heroes spend their time focused on the mission.
