I wrote anouther mission. I don’t know if it’s interesting enough, so I think I at least need some feedback before I use it with the group. There is a certain lack of variety of what the players can actually do…I’m still really new to this game, so this is kinda… practice.
A Skink Situation
“Hungry Skinks have been raiding our cricket farms, and eatting our crops. We need you to search the area and cut down the population, or come winter we will surely starve.”
(Skink-wise can be used to help vertually every check in Ob. 1)
Ob. 1 Reduce the local Skink population.
“There is reports of a large nest of about 14 eggs near here, if you can destroy that it should reduce this years Skink population”
Scout vs. Skink’s Nature of 4+1(5)
P: goto 2
F: goto 2 (gain hungry status)
“You found the nest, you walk up to the nest, suddenly two Skinks appear… They don’t seem to happy.”
Ob. 4 Loremouse check or Conflict with two Skinks. Failing the Loremouse check will result in conflict. Destroying the eggs after successful Loremouse check will cause conflict (before going to Ob. 2.)
P: “You destroy the eggs.” goto Ob. 2
Ob. 2 Don’t die. (result 1)
"A mouse mounting a Skink, in heavy armor, and a long decretive lance appears from the distance and rides up to your patrol, "My name is Lord Hamshire, King of the Skinks. I was once a mouse of great wealth and fortune, but long ago I renounced my place in Mouse society and left my riches to live amongst the Skinks. Your crimes against us have been great and you must pay for your actions… "
“What is that Skink? I should have a trail! No! I will hear no more of that nonsense, these mice are killers!.. what’s that? Haha, your knowledge of early 500’s philosophy is quite impressive… sigh you know I can’t say no to you… Alright murderous Mice, make your plea.”
[Deceiver or Persuader vs. Lord Hamshire’s Will of 5]
P: “Alright, I will let you off with only a warning but remember whenever there is a Skink in danger, I’ll be there. Don’t let me catch you killing my brothers and sisters again, or you will have your lives to pay. Yah!” Lord Hamshire tuggs on the reins and rides off into the distance. END
F: “I say guilty, and the punishment is death!” Lord Hamshire tuggs on the reins and rides off into the distance. and begins to charge the group.
