what to do with abigail

Postby Waylaynder » Wed Aug 10, 2016 10:37 am

What ho.
In my upcoming quest for some new players. They've I'll meet a witch called a big ail. Accused of demon worship and seducing to his doom a young blessed one of priaus.
they actually fell in love and she is innocent.
Providing the party doesn't kill he which would make their quest against nameless one cultists harder. What do I do with her endgame wise.

have her bumped off by demons or undead.
have her walk off to other more liberal countries than andergastan.
stay in the town
be saved by the ghost of her priestly love valeria/conan style (is there an afterlife in dark eye? )
die and have her spirit make an appearance with the priest who is a major npc plot wise.
something else ?

Thanks for reading and for suggestions.

It depends on how poetic you want to be.

One interesting option would be that Abigail now has nowhere to turn as her reputation is ruined and the only people who would have her, the witches.

Through the baseless accusations have her accusers created the very thing they accused her of being. Of course she won't actually have magical power but still.

Well being accused a witch is probable better in Nostria/Andergast then in other countries because Witches and Sumen (Druids) are highly respected in both countries. While Andergast is much more Sumen centric then Nostria where witches wield an huge amount of influence they are still widely respected. Epsecially by people living in small villages near nature.

So I would keep in mind that it might very possible that the real witch circles get involved if things get out of hand...
Or if a Druid gets involved they might try not to find a political solution to not piss of their witchy neighbours to much.

Thanks for feed back guys.
need that almanac.
thought andergast and nostria would be perfect for a conservative superstitious setting.
she is a witch. (Cat type ) although familiar has been bumped off by nameless one cult.
For the game concept we are taking elements from sleepy hollow the film with jonny depp
A fair bit of Dennis Wheatley ''s book. The haunting of Toby jugg.
and a bit of 13 warrior/beowulf.
and just the easter egg For me is bob deniro from the mission will be an npc
if she doesn't get killed by the party. I'll have her ask the party for an escort to friendlier territory. Is their a witch/druid haven near the borders of the two realms?

Haven't played yet ;)

Been a mission with getting players free to play. Also awaiting kickstarter package. So I've been using pdf on the Kindle to do pc creation.
abi won't make an apperceive for a Lil while. (Hoping to start this thurs)
Depending on how party reacts to her she will either go off with then in the epilogue or at the least go to nostria and join up with other witches there, as suggested above.

Benedict her love will not make a ghostly appearance.

Thanks for asking dude. I'll post up what happens on this thread as the campaign/quest/game progresses

No worries, I always love to hear how things turn out. I am going to set my campaign in Nostria and Andergast as well but my prep time will be a few months so I won't have anything really to report until next year.

All the best :)
