How much damage do we want our characters to do?
- If it doesn't affect our covenant, it doesn't matter.
- The future of Scotland could well hang in the balance.
- The Order of Hermes itself is in grave peril!
- It's the Apocalypse! Run for your lives!
So, I'm gradually coming up with ideas, on varying scales of epic-ness. But I would like some input from you, my sodales, as to what direction, or how grand, we would like the saga to go. So i'm making a quick poll. Granted, with only three or four of us (if that), I might have more options than players. But I do have at least a vague idea of what to do with each of the options I'm putting in the poll. And they're not mutually exclusive...if we go one way, I can at least put in side- or sub-plots with one of the other options, as well.
- "If it doesn't affect our covenant, it doesn't matter.": The saga will focus primarily on trying to rebuild Insula Canaria and ensure that it will still be around after we're gone. The world will go on without us, and any actions we have will have little, if any, effect on the rest of creation.
- "The future of Scotland could well hang in the balance.": There could well be changes a-brewin' in Loch Leglean, and Insula Canaria could hold the key as to how the Tribunal evolves. Whether it leans more English, or more Scottish, or withdraws and lets the muggles fend for themselves without any interference from the Order, or even if they decide that the muggles need a firm, guiding hand to make sure they don't slaughter each other.
- "The Order of Hermes itself is in grave peril!": Events have been put into motion that, if left unchecked, could have dire consequences for the Order.
- "It's the Apocalypse! Run for your lives!": Like above, but hairier and with longer, sharper fangs. The events in motion won't stop with the Order of Hermes, but they could have a long-term effect on the whole world.
I've got seeds of ideas for all four options (some stronger than others), but I don't want to force you into something that you don't want to run with.
