Re: How to roleplay it

So have the thief simple claim they were caught unawares whilst he was fetching firewood by the time he heard the start of the fighting whatever it was killed the others and possessed an aura of such overwhelming supernatural fear he was left incapacitated but unseen by whatever it was. Only the daw...

Re: How to justify it and what freebies to hand out?

How about they've only recently inherited that position and part of their subplot is discovering and coming to terms with their new responsibilities... For example a former mercenary convalescing from injuries from a recent battle learns that due to recent uprising they are now the legitimate heir t...

Supposing you start a session zero with the pcs travelling to a post apocalyptic world due to rumours of a warship belonging to a long dead race had been spotted due to suspicion it's been targeting ships belonging to a much more powerful empire whose been otherwise bullying the other species. How m...

Re: Rat Trap

I pictured it as initially a reminder she hasn't escaped her past, but someone else latched onto it as a convenient mechanism to pull off their scheme.

Re: Rat Trap

The point is that until this specific delivery was broken open and drunk all the others were deliberately emptied then disposed of properly so she had no idea they were poisoned. The original person responsible didn't know she loathed vodka, but the original intention was to locate her grandfather w...

Re: Rat Trap

The idea is that it was brought aboard against her wishes and escaped notice because she was assigned aboard at the last moment so neither the crew nor those loading the ship were aware of her dislike of vodka. Part of the mystery would reveal she had received similar deliveries ever since she start...

Rat Trap

Okay I have a copy of the Orbital setting and I'm thinking up a murder mystery on an exploration mission intended to establish a base on one of the outer planets moons. Discovering a case of vodka apparently an impromptu present for one of their unruly npc engineers. She however tells them to dump t...

Psion Groups

How do you handle this? For instance you have a group of Inquisitors possessing psionic abilities trained to hunt down and either capture or kill those with psionic abilities let alone threaten the empire they serve. Their empire is toppled forcing many to flee rather than face justice for their act...

Re: PSION detection

So either the Zhodani Embassy is lending a hand or some other organisation with access to Psion's or psionic research to know what they're doing.
Either way the players should know these things exist before kiboshing their characters with no in game reason?

Re: How to ensure the villain escapes no matter what

Have them called away before they can finally meet learning through intercepted communications or conversations about the bbeg leaving them an opening to place a tracker so they can follow the villain to his boss?

Re: Suggest a suitable end for her

Have one last hurrah and as it appears to end her badly damaged flagship is scuttled with all evidence suggesting she went down with her ship. In truth she walks away remaining out of contact until she finds a world that has no idea who she is and she settles there allowing her "immortality" to fade...

London! Sorry it's been so long that I needed something eye catching for the title! Been playing a bit too much Neverwinter, but it got me curious how hard would it be to set some of that for a Legend game? Start off on the beach after their ship is wrecked. They need to reach the dubious safety of ...

Re: 2300AD - Any News?

Pardon my language but what if they successfully build a jump drive or a stutterwarp drive?

First to reach the orbit of say Mars then further?

How would people react, more importantly how would it be revealed if at all given the political climate?

Re: The potential reprecussions?

Here I was thinking what if the person in question is a member of a discriminated race but unlike many of their brethren they've walked away from their violent racist stereotypes that's all people remember. It's quite likely they've spent years rebuilding their lives posing as a member of another na...
