Hi everyone, we had our first maneuver last week and it was awesome. I’m the GM, and I’m planning a lot of devious plots to trigger on the PCs. But first, I need to know the extent of the scenes I can create with my narrative budget, and specially, who can they be activated with. Yes, I’ve read p.428 but still; I’d like to run it from my actual examples.
My roster is:
*The planet’s Forged Lord, Infiltration’s GM FoN.
-His associate, a vaylen geneticist posing as a scientist/diplomat helping the mukhadish breeders make better slaves.
*The planet’s ArchCotar, Usurpation’s GM FoN
-The Cotar Fomas beneath him, in charge of most of the planet’s ground forces.
*A Slave Insurrectionist, Invasion’s GM FoN
- …and his mukhadish friend/bodyguard.
And, created by the PCs:
- A charismatic Foundation Speaker, inimical to the First Speaker PC.
- The Forged Lord’s niece, trapped in the middle of a love triangle between two PCs.
- The wife of one of those PCs, obviously antagonistic to his husband affair.
So, my question is, basically: who of those can initiate each kind of scenes?
Can, the Foundation Speaker make a building scene to investigate the First Speaker’s shady deals? Can the betrayed wife act on building scenes to gather proof on his husband’s infidelity? Can the Cotar Fomas act upon orders given in an insterstitial by the ArchCotar?
I read any of my characters can initiate conflicts, but I’m not sure about building scenes and color/interstitial; and on who’s account should they be deducted, if there’s such a hard compartimentalized account…
