String Puppets


A contest between good and evil. You choose the winner.  Shall it be the betrayed or the betrayer who conquers?

Katherine betrayed her bethrothed the night before their wedding. She turned him into the head priest, who had been searching for the “mage sacrifice” the gods so greatly desired. In fear and remorse of her actions, she fled and left Addric to hs doom.

Main Plot:
(*you can choose to be either evil or good*)
*“Good (mainly)”
You play as the vengenance filled Addric. You search out Katherine.  First, you must escape from the prison you are waiting in to be executed. Once you beat that, you must work your way to the main city.  Then, gain entrance to the castle ball, as Katherine is one of the queen’s ladys in waiting.  Once in the ball, you must continue by causing mass mayhem (but discretely! don’t want the guards on you!!) and get Katherine away from the queen.
The rest shall be a surprise (*hee, hee, hee*)

*“Evil (mainly)”
You play as Katherine.  You must run away from the old village, where you betrayed Addric, and find a job in the castle.  You start as a kitchen maid, and you work your way up to a lady in waiting.
Then, comes the night of the ball. To gain sucess on this level, you must attempt to prevent Addric from causing the mass mayhem. The rest, well, same as above (*hee, hee, hee*)

Addric: his powers are “puppet” powers. he can control people for limited amounts of time

Katherine: has “ghost” powers. can move things telepathically and transport herself short distances.

Guards: quite dumb actually. for Katherine, she needs to order their every move. for Addric, they are tougher to fool.

My notes: i’m still not too good at these plot things, so be honest, but know im trying to learn! sorry if it completely stinks…

Well, not sure if you really understand the whole "roleplaying" aspect of this- roleplaying is generally done in groups, with all the players playing a long-standing character.
But anyway... It isn't *that* bad, just needs more substance to it. Why did Katherine betray Addric? Does she hate him? What does the title "String Puppets" have to do with it (besides Addric's powers)? I enjoy your take on magic, though- everyone has a specific power.
So, needs improvement, but not *totally* unsalvageable.

CP is right - it's actually not a bad idea but it does need fleshing out and you need to find some way to include a group of player characters

Thought - either of the main protagonists may need a little help

Not brilliant but shows promise

This is indeed just the Prologue to a plot but for unknown reason I kinda like it. So I'm gonna give it 2.5.

Coinlake sits perched between two sheer cliffs in the Stigrani range, and is difficult to find, much less approach. Four miles long and two across, the water is a vibrant cyan blue. The lake's shoreline is an unassuming beach of gray pebbles, and its mean depth is seventy feet. The rare times when the sun makes its way between the cliffs and shines over the the still water, one could see clearly the lake's rock-strewn bottom.

Strangely, no fish or aquatic life can be found here.

At night, a peculiar phenomena occurs. When the night sky is clear, the moon and stars are reflected in the lake's surface, but if one were to look at the surface from a high vantage point, the reflection does not match the firmament above!

Instead the water's surface reflects the night sky of some other distant world and seventeen shining golden moons besides, each ones shimmering upon the water like so many gold coins!

Legends whisper that Coinlake is not a lake at all, but a gate or nexus, to some distant alien world.

The mystery has long remained unsolved, and only recently has the Arch-Duke commissioned an expedition to uncover the secret of Coinlake once and for all. Among the team members are several scholars of the Nascent Academy, an astrologer from the Occultists Guild, and of course the PCs, acting as body guards.
