Saemond's comment on 2004-09-17 03:50 PM
I think another nice addition would be that the PCs hear of this Redgar claiming to have done deed X and saved Village Y or whatever, of course the events in the rumors accreditted to Redgar are the very same actions that the PCs have just done, furthermore it seems that Redgar's entourage is taking credit for all the goodly deeds that the PCs have done over the years.

Obviously the PCs will be a little unhappy, and will go looking for Redgar to settle this issue. Go to Comment

Now Scrasamax, there is no cause to be downhearted for I truly love this character - shallow, egoistical, and empty-headed - great fun

As Cheka Man said, a genuine triumph of propaganda

My evil little GM mind is already starting to overheat

I love this guy! I think that I was in a play with him once.

King Senach would hire him as his champion, laughing his head off the entire time... Go to Comment

Awesome idea, honestly. Whenever I game, I play a professional soldier, a make-no-bones-about-it type of killer- the guy who'll high-five you in streets one day and shoot you right in the face the very next day if ordered to. Now, my type of character, who emphasizes courage and honor above glory (think special operations soldiers WITH MAGIC!) would end up trying to strangle Redgar within minutes. And if his propaganda guys start saying that it wasn't a fair fight, then my dude'd probably say it wasn't, since Redgar's such a bloody pansy that he was crying like a baby in five seconds.

I want to put this guy into a campaign, now. How could I introduce him into a magic/technological environment, though? Go to Comment

Ah Destroying the World, or nearly destroying the world, is a GM's favorite past time. In this case, the GM really does not have to, as the mere appearance of the Omen, will allow the society to radically change.

This is a great way to revamp your game world some, if it has become tired during play.

Recently watched the iChronicles of Riddick/i in which a comet is the harbinger of the world killing Necromongers. There is some nice work done as the necromongers become a dominating topic among street speakers and conversationalists. The name is spoken with trepidation, disbelief and fear.

A question to anyone else who saw the movie, why were the necromongers the only people with capital ships? Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2005-01-30 07:24 PM
on one hand, they could in theory be better prepared each time the comet comes round. On the other, each passage could be a horribly disruptive event. Records are destroyed, oral traditions disrupted and so forth. THe only way that the the regular timing of the comet of ill omen could be found would be through the examination of gaps in historical record.

IE - the Kingdom of Tammuz existed for 150 years, followed by 50 years of Ghazi occupation. Then, the records cease to exist for thrity to fifty years. Following that, the Arbela dynasty rose and lasted 200 some odd years before vanishing, leaving behind sketchy recounts of an omen in the sky and panic and confusion.

It has been nearly 250 years since the fall of the Arbela Dynasty. Do the PCs get nervous? Go to Comment

Now, what if the comet was a recurring event - returning since its first appearance regularly, and the malevolent effects - not only people being mad, but also magical fallout and the like - it brings becoming more severe with every return? Go to Comment

If it happens often, it would have less impact each time as the states would be able to prepare for it better. Go to Comment

Becuase it is demoralizing to those they have come to conquer. The others were given much smaller ships to keep with the idea that most of these places are growing colonies that have not been established long enough to build little more than hodge-podge transports cannibalized from the ships that originally brought them there.

My question is, where is New Mecca?(sp?) The place they were originally heading in the first movie. Go to Comment

Great idea, and I do like it as is!

Why leave the PC's earthbound with a modern interpretation of a comet? Let it be Zrgnax' Chariot of Doom or whatever, and let the mayhem begin. Then send the PC's off to deal with it as the first part of the plot - good transitory change of venue, wierd physical distortions, bizarre magical effects, etc, for a few sessions.

Ah, and so They Save The World! Or do they?

The threat in the sky may be gone, but it will be a long time before it's forgotten, and now the PC's must deal with a new social order. How did their fief, friends and fortunes fare? Some did well (or made out well by doing ill?), some did ill (or suffered ill for doing right?)? Surprising alliances, and unexplained enmities? Some gone missing, and none will say where? Let them discover the rippling after-effects of the social upheaval, which happened despite (because of?) their Grand Adventure. How different the world they return to is, of course, enough to drive a whole campaign.

Could they ever "return it to normal", if they wanted to? Go to Comment

Barbarian Horde's comment on 2004-09-14 09:56 AM
Good item I could use it in a various of ways. I like it and the whole story this could even possibly open up a new area to my PC's and new quests so great job but a couple questions.

Is this ring just one of the King's rings and if so where are the other 6 and are they lost or maybe they all have different little magic abilities?

And who is the Arch-Duke is it one of the Lords or the King?

Very nice, but how do the rings look like?

They should have a distinct design so people recognize them. Go to Comment

A special kind of flavour would it get, if one of the families would die out.

The respective ring would be unusable then, but serve as a memory of better times, kept in honour. Until perhaps, someone tries the ring, and it fits! It could be truly the illegitimate child, and thus rock the new order, asking for titles and all. Or it is an impostor, and the ring is a fake. Choose one. Go to Comment
