Ringan Posted February 27 Report Share Posted February 27 Let's say some PK(s) have put Agravaine or Mordred in their crosshairs. Avoiding skullduggery, they want to honorably duel them to the death. Unlike other RPGs with super-strong "bosses", the PK(s) might be strong enough that they have decent chances. These villainous deaths could seriously mess with the story. What kind of options might a GM take? Starting off with a few of my thoughts: Roll with it: simply plan to adapt the plot without these villains--almost no one but Arthur is essential Forbid Round Table Knight infighting: If the PKs are also RTKs, then their vows forbid them from fighting the villainous RTKs. However, maybe there options like being too rough at a tournament...? Direct Pleas or Edicts from Arthur: Maybe Arthur intervenes directly to demand the conflict is ended? Villain is unavailable: PK is just never able to get access to the villain to make the challenge. We could try to leverage a Kafkaesque bureaucracy of status and etiquette in support of this. However, what if the PK publicly calls out the villain? Post-combat Villainous Escape: PK defeats the villain but is unable to kill him. See relevant TV tropes. Magic?: In the case of the Orkneys, maybe it's some kind of magic from Morgause/Morgan le Fay that helps them dodge the bullet. For other villains, we could contrive analogous allied sorcerers. Really curious to hear how other GMs have approached this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
