The festival is in full swing and the Battle of the Beers is on! Which brewery will have the tastiest, most potent brew? What goes into these crazy drinks?

PCs are hired by a group of strange foreign types who've come to their city hunting a run away Prince.If they look into it further, the lot of them come from an evil as fuck style empire. Is it morally right for the PCs to help such a government?When they find the Prince he refuses outright to return with them on the grounds he's now seen what a republic is like and thinks its far better than a Monarchy, he wants there to be a succession crisis so he can manipulate his own people into standing on their own two feet and revitalize their stagnant, brutal and ancient autocratic caste-based empire. He wants the PCs to stop others finding him and then assist in bringing down his own House and the Noble Caste.The Royal Family are Serpentfolk, the entire kingdom are reptile people, replace Monarch with 'God-King', in that the Royal family literally has an aura of domination over their people and while not gods are exalted as such

If there is a extremely powerful being with strong mind control powers and is older then the current version of the civilization that the questioner is part of how much does it matter if it is just a very strong vampire?

One that has lead to a number of ruinous holy wars.
>>47727943You've discovered how to harness the power of steam, which pisses off every wizard everywhere as an industrial revolution could shift the social order and leave magic obsolete.

You put a dungeon near the town, you make sure all the XP (preferably treasure, not monsters) is in the dungeon, and the adventurers will go there.Play in a sandbox, not on a railroad. You'll enjoy the feeling of smug superiority that comes along with it, to say nothing of the added leisure time when you realize how little prep-time is involved in a game if real™ D&D, which is to say an old-school dungeon-crawl with no plot.

Regeneration hasn't worked. Also you're hiding in a cottage innawoods because you're a fugitive from the kingdom, and the guy's clearly a soldier. He's passed out on your floor and the jury's still out on whether you're better of helping or killing him.

But this is more a personal tale of the general and the denizens of the mountain where he lives.

>>47727943Hard mode:Various factions built around special interests (various guilds, guild opponents, disestablismentarianists, anit-those guys, labor reformers, etc.) have suddenly become at each others throats with newly hateful rhetoric. Emotions are boiling over seemingly out of nowhere. Group polarization is happening fast, splitting communities and even families. A peaceful resolution seems further away every moment as demands and calls for change become more and more reasonable. In the middle of all of this, a priest appears seemingly poffering proof that his God does exist and in the turbulent times, many of the smallfolk have turned to his belief. Rumors abound that even some local leaders are supporting him behind closed doors and may come public when the time is right.>hook plays off of conflict theory and how situations become untenable (things like group polarization which describes how views within a group can become more extreme over time), possibly leading to revolution. There's still time to prevent it, or accelerate it. Some in the various movements actually believe that they are doing the right thing, a handful see it as an opportunity to gain more power and wealth. The priest can be played as the latter, or hell, screw hardmode and an emissary of a returned god: whether pissed and vengeful, or peaceful and loving or appearing like one but actually the other are all pretty decent tropes to follow.

Factions within the Region include:> Formerly Mighty Noble-Houses infighting amongst each other> Infighting within these Noble Houses> Fighting against the fallout and leftovers of three big wars, whose mercenaries and soldiers still pillage the land> A small couple of Obvious Bad Guys,> A Corrupt Imperial Officer, who SHOULD be in Charge of restoring Order to the Region.While the Heroes first start out as warlords themselves they can eventually start acting on the political stage.Finally, the great Climax is a Fourway Brawl between> a has-been Imperial High Commander who had been disgraced an a Renegade for many years, returning ahead a mercenarie army and employing any ( ANY ) means necessary to restore order> the Imperial Armies who may or may not have finally been rallied or found a proper commander> The Noble Houses, United or Divided, possibly spearheaded by an exiled Princess who returned Home> The Adventurers themselves, who might be a Faction large enough to contend with each of the other three
