    I'm kinda glad for the necro, I had no idea this was out there. Thanks Sandact6, maybe I don't have to defer my ideas for Alchemical Incursions for (probably) so long that my game will be over by then.

    Hahaha, thanks. Killing Sidereals on sight might well be a legitimate reaction. But May Blossom is trustworthy! I guess I don't have a specific endgame in mind, I'm just looking to create an environment that allows for a lot of intrigue. I think there's a lot of options for this spinning off into other semi-related things in the Deathlord's territory & in Yu-Shan as well. I prefer to leave some flexibility, since I'm sure that the players' actions will create a lot of unpredictable options.

    I'm considering offering some significant benefits for as long as the PCs are willling...

    Ayesha Ura the traitor

    So I'm about to start a new game, and I thought I'd see if there's any glaring holes in how I plan to portray the Gold Faction.

    There will be three characters - Ayesha Ura, May Blossom & a third entirely of my making. (May Blossom is barely defined afaik, so I've filled in a lot of blanks there too) I'm gonna take a darker twist on the cannon though. I was inspired by that sidebar (in MoEP: Sidereals or Yu Shan, I forget) that suggests that the Gold Faction orchestrated the deal between the Yozis & Deathlords in order to free the Solars. I want to take it a step further and...

  • Don't forget the rich tapestry of options that arise when you blackmail someone with dirt you have on their loved ones. Even squeaky-clean priests can be blackmailed this way, with interesting fallout if they weren't actually aware of their loved one's misdeeds.

    Edit - The thing you're blackmailing them with doesn't have to be wrong, only something that would have dire consequences. For example, gay people in positions of power were sometimes blackmailed with the threat of being outed back in the days when homosexuality was illegal. It probably still happens in the rare circumstances...

  • I like this idea, and I hadn't read any of the 1e stuff about Luna, so thanks for sharing it. I like to run the Incarnae as being fairly thoroughly corrupted by the Games of Divinity because I like to confront pious heroes with the possibility that their Gods are unworthy of them, but I usually think of Luna as making at least an effort not to entirely abandon their duties. The concubine-queen being worthier than the born royalty fits my headcanon nicely.
