Spies of Lindor


The Spies of Lindor is a large connection of people, who could show up at your doorstep, store, or right behind you at this very moment…

The Spies of Lindor were created in the province of Lindor approximately 200 years ago by a man named Kros Embron. It’s sole purpose was to gain information about a Resistance force against the kingdom brewing at the time. The Spies were victorious in a cover-up and complete destruction of this force, but then Kros was assassinated by his second in command and the group was split into two sections, which both remain today. The Espers of Lotrii (A city in Lindor) were created by the previous second-in-command and came to be near just as powerful as the Spies.

They have a very ‘hush-hush’ war, in which most people are killed in their sleep. They have become two very different societies and strategies. They fight all over the province of Lindor, and have yet to end the war there.

The Spies of Lindor have branched out, with their Headquarter’s remaining in Lindor. You never know if a Lindor may be recruiting, or causing harm, to your community or town. Watch out, for they may be near…

A little short, it would be nice if you fleshed out the backstory a little more, also, it would be extremely interesting if you could describe the two factions in more detail.

Potentially awesome, but we could use a little more context, plus what Drackler said :)

What was the reason for this resistance movement? Who was Kros Embron and why did he create the Spies? How do the Espers differ from the Spies? What are the group's rituals and practices?
This has definite potential, but it needs work.

Why are the Spies and the Espers killing each other? Do their different strategies obstruct each other, and does each side blame the other because this "obstruction" is allowing the remnants of the Resistance to rebuild?

Lindor makes me think of the chocolate company. lol. I will hold my vote for now.

There is some potential here, but as Cheka pointed out, the name Lindor just makes me hungry.

I'm not sure why this one was challenged. It is a great ground piece to launch your own spy-battle campaign from. You would need to fill in the blanks mentioned in previous comments and after that I think it would be usable. Sure, names would need to change, but I really see no good reason for challenging this one.

I agree with Pieh on the challenge status. However, it needs a lot of work to earn a higher vote.

This seems more like an idea sub than an actual full submission. Things that I would like to see added in there.
1) Who was Kros Embron? Was he a King? An advisor to a King? A powerful merchant or simply a well connected and respected miscreant?
2) What was the resistance and how did it come about? What was the need to have someone look into it and destroy it later?
3) Where did the Spies of Lindor gain their training to become so adept at what they needed to do in such a short time?
4) If they were formed as information gatherers why does it seem that they became full fledged assassins in such short order?
5) Why was Kros killed by his second in command and why did the faction split into two, why not just stay under the command of Kros's killer?
6) Why the creation of the Espers of Lotrii? And where did their training in the assassin arts come from?

Not saying that this is a horrible sub by any means. It has a lot of potential I'm thinking but it definitely needs to be fleshed out more.

While traversing the tractless deserts of Shezmu, the pc's come across a travelling caravan led by Vual, the Demon-Camel, the Lord of Lust, the Thrice-Humped...Vual is cursed to only be able to assume one form outside the Abyss, that of a rather large, golden-skinned three-humped camel,with a frog-like, black, barbed tongue......

Vual is the demonic manifestation of Lust...his followers, a cult of truly disturbed individuals, engage in bizarre orgies, travelling the desert towns, "entertaining" the desert folk with their perverse antics...

Vual's Rapture is what the cultists call their monthly festival, where they perform perverse rites to honor Vual...ofcourse folk come from great distances to witness the festivals, despite themselves, and the Cult of Vual welcomes all...

Surprisingly for such a hideous creature, Vual has the power to beguile and charm with his magical voice. His voice will always sound to pcs as the voice of the person they most desire...his followers also gain this ability slowly over time...

When the pc's meet with Vual, he tries to seduce them into joining his cult. If for whatever reason the pc's resist..well then... Vual would probably kill them for sport, as a lesson for those who "resist Vual's love"....
