Great idea, Mancerbear. I only got my two sons halfway through "High and Dry" and have not completed it (they went back to college!) but one of the things that I had intended to do was make a connection with one of the locals like you did to ensure they feel compelled to help. Otherwise, it's just some stranger asking you to risk your life for her!mancerbear wrote: ↑Wed Jun 15, 2016 10:58 pmI also included the vargr Sophie as a foil to encourage the players to rescue her when the brown stuff hits the air con vents. She's the Dictator's chauffer, so it will be her taking the air/raft to save her family during the eruption. I believe that players are more likely to act heroically if they have a vested interest in who they are saving. One player in particular has developed a liking for her. Hopefully that will pan out. I may even have Sophie sign onto the ship as an NPC crewmember.
Regarding the progression of the story: Do you think you'll have them go through the updated "Expedition to Zhodane" when it comes out?
