We had our first session with my in-person group and the Motif fit like a glove!
The players rolled three peasants and a bourgeois:
- Baptiste, the most unfortunate impoverished filou I’ve ever seen.
- Chandler, another filou, homeless but unbroken.
- Pier, a middle class factotum.
- Jean-Luc Beaulieu, a young bourgeois soldat: coward, dumb as a rock, and deadly as sin (+3 STR, +2 DEX!)
Ther group was on fire. They came up with a great idea to link their characters: Baptiste, Chandler and Pier were employees of the recently deceased Maître Beaulieu. When his only son—Jean-Luc—returned from the front, they found an incompetent brute only fit for war. The peasants decided to band together in assisting his new employer before he completely ruins his family state: "We won’t let the Beaulieu name fall in disgrace."
We’re currently testing the Illumination of Monsieur Faucher (you can check it out here!), starting the session candlelit, conspiring around the table to decide who will they deliver the necromancer to.
We wrapped up with the characters sneaking past the enraged mob, ready to walk through the cemetery gates.
