Meet the Jedi. They are weak humanoids who divide into small groups, striving to overcome their flaws, desperate to be pure enough to protect the innocent and helpless from massive invasions, powerful Sith, ruthless animals, natural disasters, wicked merchants, and cruel governments.
The Jedi, striving to overcome their natural tendencies toward DECEPTION, ANGER, AMBITION, and PRIDE, fight for others according to the lofty ideologies of their order. What happens when Jedi become to idealistic, though? What happens when they give in to their human desires?
This is a story of weak, fragile souls gifted with amazing powers. But as they become heroes, their talents could very well be their undoing.
0: Sagelike - you have become one with the Jedi Creed, you are the incarnation of Peace and Service. Even the Jedi Council, to your pure standards, is corrupt. You can’t convince yourself that killing leads to Peace, you can’t follow the orders of those who are not enlightened. At the end of the session/season you leave the Jedi Order, or seclude yourself in libraries and empty hallways, refusing to do any missions.
7: Fallen - you have given in to your human desires, you have forsaken the Jedi ideals and acted on your emotions and personal goals. The Jedi don’t understand you, they are chains binding you to a fake system of justice trying to brainwash its members into being pawns of the Force. As soon as you reach Nature 7, your party realizes your fall, and must confront you immediately. You are now their enemy. They surround you and attempt to execute you, a la Mace Windu and co vs Darth Sidious. [Hint, this has potential for epic roleplaying]
The Nature (Evil) descriptors are DECEPTION, ANGER, and some others that I am less sure about. Options are: GREED, AMBITION, PRIDE, etc. Anyone have better ideas?
Hey everyone. I’m new here. I bought Mouse Guard recently, and have played twice. Once with my Mom, just me (GM and character) and her (character). She hates games. She had fun. Mouse Guard creates miracles. The second time was with a standard party of four doing a preset mission.
Anyway, I read through this section for hacks on the forum, and after a while of bad ideas for other settings, came up with this potential one for Star Wars. Tell me what you think.
