It’s a big hat…it’s funny…
Over the years I’ve threatened player groups with super baddies and the occasional grumpy vampire on Speed but I’ve never followed through with failed attempts at taking out these baddies. It’s always came down to the Final Battle™ and that was it. If the enemy survived to fight another day they never came back for another bite unless it was going to end the same way.
I’d never really thought about it until I looked out of my window to see the local wildlife sneaking up on an unsuspecting friend and jump him from behind. I’m assured it was all in jest despite the screams of @I’ll kill you for that’ coming from the victim. How often do you ever have your players hunted by a competent assassin?
When I say competent I really do mean one that actually could end the life of a player should the dice roll well and the player doesn’t take adequate protection.
It’s my random thought for Friday night.
