Hmmm - How DO you protect a man from an unknown number of assassins who do not themselves have any connection with their intended victim?

Difficult to say the least - PCs are gonna have to THINK about this one - can't wait to see how they do (or maybe not)

OK, ran this one yesterday. I did modify it a bit to work for a PW, but I must say, one of my best events ever. It was completely amazing. Basically came down to three hours of pure role play, they only had a few fights. Decided to have him hire the party to track down the assassins by going through the contacts that the letters had been delivered to, instead of having them delivered to the assassins outright. They then had to bribe the contacts in various ways to get to the assassins (That was quite interesting...one of the party members *coughs* slept with a contact for the info...), and then find a way to get the assassin not to do the job. Ended up paying one off with even more then he got to do the job, killing one, and catching the third in the act of trying to kill the man. They did ultimately kill her, but due to the actions of one party member, the man did wind up dead. That actually put a great twist on it, as now that party member is in jail for being suspected of being one of the assassins! Going to make his trail in to an event, as well.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for such an amazing idea...I did credit you in the sign up for it, too. ;) Go to Comment

Since I'm going back to give feedback on all the Strolen's stuff that I've yoinked over the years for my own purposes, I wanted to make special mention of this sub.  It's a wonderful addition with a great twist and plenty to get PC interested in helping.  My players took to it with aplomb.  Wondering where the next attack was coming from.



Best of all, I managed to get them believing that the attacks were because of their actions rather than the poor young man. 



I very much enjoyed this, thank you manfred

This is a good and interesting plot, but the premise doesn't sit well with me. Mostly because it turns the wife into a sort of psychopath. After all, if both of them are dead who would look after her child? If she cared at all for either of them the plot seems to fall apart. It would make more sense to me if the assassinations were keyed off of some sort of action on his part, like getting remarried. This would also turn the new wife into the prime suspect, as he would have inhereted a good deal of money from his previous wife. No one expects a dead killer.

But "dose" is. :)

This isn't mocking of magic or majik (whether it exists or not), actually it tries to show how magical potential would be really used in a world - more often for small, everyday items than big shows of cheap power - and this use may have more impact on the world at large. Yep, it is somewhat silly, but even that is a legitimate use, especially if you consider the more serious applications.

And as for need... I admit that I partly hope to never need magic to help me, and partly hope it will. Go figure. Go to Comment

You ain't seen nothing yet.

There are many settings, and much is created without any particular setting. Steal away - and leave something useful behind, if you get an idea. :) Go to Comment

This is the kind of magic item that MUs should be making. Why slave away for twenty years creating a magic sword you and yours can't use - and nobody can really re-emburse you for your time spent (and lack of lifespan after), when you can do a few days work and sell the results for big bucks.

This is the kind of magic item you will find in my world. Go to Comment

Can't argue with either of these replies - nice useful little item, easy to make and with plenty of profit potential - just the sort of thing that would be common.

I also quite like the idea that it started as a practical joke - just the sort of evil (with a small "e") little prank students are wont to play.

Really nice idea - 5/5 Go to Comment
