Three words: Abdicate the throne.

Find a distant offspring or even the decendant of a bastard child of one of the former rulers that is a decent enough and wise enough to run the country as it ought to be. Find a suitable replacment. Ari doesn't HATE her country, right? She just hates her position. Then the quest becomes to find and authenticate the successor, and protect them from anyone trying to eliminate them. That could prove harder than originally thought, if the ministers hire some of the lower elements of the crime world and arrange some accidents. Go to Comment

Of course, if the third person wants to get her for a larger organization, and they want her for a special reason, this could go a lot deeper....... Go to Comment

But wouldn't the third parties offer of a prize for Ari's recovery might tip one astute member of the party off? Go to Comment

It's always fun to mix in royalty with the party, especially if one (or more) of the involved characters grow romantically attached to them, Perhaps the man in question is an old flame of the princess, but now she's fallen for the seductive ranger of the group and doesn't want to leave her side and elope with the man as she once planned to months ago?



If the princess and character are keeping their relationship secret it could create all kind of difficulties when others in the group agree to the proposed plan and try to move ahead with it.

I like the mini-plot associated with her.  I would definitely make the motivation of the enigmatic third party a little deeper than pure lust -- probably a power play by a savvy duke who wants Ari out of the way, or a plot by the bastard son of the Queen's consort, who believes that he should be entitled to rule.

And maybe the Blue Books are sentient, and like their position not at all. Go to Comment

Perhaps they can manifest their wills with small constructs of magical energy. Go to Comment

Wow, another old school submission. I love how they where written back then. The sentence: "Contains a lot of naughty spells" made me nod my head and laugh out loud.

Ramhir: If you want to know more you will probably have to write it yourself, Ephe was lost to the world of mathematics aeons ago. Go to Comment

I'd like to know a little more about them. I can see a scenario arc around them, where the PCs have to find the Books, one at a time, and bring them back to the High Temple of ??? to be destroyed/entombed/or otherwise gotten rid of. Of course, the current owners will be displease, but you can't make everyone happy! Go to Comment

This entire submission left me sniggering from the premise to the magical properties.

Strolen's comment on 2003-01-03 12:11 AM
The tension between the rivals is ripe for abuse by the DM.

They could be met by one group that is pretending to be the other group and hire them to do something to harm the other group. After the first contact the initial hirer could either continue to abuse the players by playing them agains the gang he is pretending to be, or just abandon them without paying. When the players go to confront the actual group for their payment they find out they actually acted against them are marked men. Do they get captured and escape, or do they try and find the man that played them and return some destruction on the other group? Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2004-02-24 05:16 AM
Everyone forgets that city evils are just as dangerous as monster evils in dungeons. Even more so, since you can't just kill things and walk away from it, there will be consequence from either the authorities (if witnessed or scryed) or the organization (if witnesse, as revenged).

This scenario is almost a better campaign starter than just a random scenario. Should we start a thread of campaign seeds in the setting forge? Go to Comment
