so the servitude slave setting is native to my world, how do i represent my slaves during character burning?
are they just color that come with being a noble?
can i purchase a ‘gaggle of slaves’ with just 1 resource point?
or do i have to spend precious circles points on a relationship with the slave master or affiliation with my slaves?
I’d treat it as color until it was something extremely important. A slave to wash your back? No problem. A slave who overheard the secret plans to murder the prince? Circles. 1,000 slaves to give as a gift to the pleasure palace? Resources.
i dunno, can a Noble even circle up a slave. different lifepath setting. you’d at least need an affiliation. and then, the obstacle for ‘lowest station’ is huge. i guess a ‘loyal slave’ is probably hard to come buy.
slave bombs. i have a darikahn rebel count holding out in a world the Dunedin took over, and i want him to bomb the Forged lord’s territory using slaves. circling up a slave just doesn’t work for that… so i figured maybe i could just ‘buy them’ as in use resource points.
i figured he’d just do an explosives check, give the slave a ‘package’ to deliver, and boom, bomb goes off. a slave inserted with a bomb is cool, but way out of his insurrectionist budget, i believe. i’m shooting for terrorism, here. nobles become afraid of their slaves, etc.
Ah. I’d do two things, then. Maybe three depending on the fiction:
Circle up a slave or slaves with “blindly loyal.” Carry this package and DO NOT LOOK IN IT. If you get enmity, they look in the package at some point and hilarity ensues.
Resources for the bomb(s).
Explosives to see how bad it was, if actual damage is what you’re looking for. Probably I’d just set an intent that’s suitable to the bomb that was sent in, like “kill a bunch of civilians and scare the living shit out of the survivors.”
