Generating the Compact

Post by The GM on Mon Aug 08, 2016 1:25 pm

Hi!

Before Wednesday night the hope is that all characters will be generated. We also want the Compact to be generated.

As detailed in the Game Mechanics, every player has the same Primary Objective:

Primary Objective: Cast a heavy blow at the morale of the hated Imperium by bringing down the Makuu la Dhahabu Kiti.

All Heretics also have the same (weekly) Tertiary Objective:

Tertiary Objective: Undermine the plots and schemes of your rivals.

Completing the Primary Objective wins the game (and gains +3 Infamy). Completing the weekly Tertiary Objective earns all those Heretics who participated 1d5 Infamy.

The bit that I need you to come up with is the 5 Secondary Objectives. The completion of all 5 Secondary Objectives should represent completion of the Primary Objective. By way of advice:


  • Make sure you phrase the Secondary Objective vaguely, to allow for different methods and different outcomes. For example, rather than 'Assassinate the Deacon with a sniper rifle', you should instead have 'Deal with the Deacon'. This leaves it open as to whether you kill him or corrupt him, and what weapons you might use.
  • Involve all areas of the setting (i.e. the Makuu, the Tithed Villages and the Villa von Klossner. It'll make it easier to come up with 5 Secondary Objectives.
  • Make the Secondary Objectives ambitious. If you make the Secondary Objective seemingly trivial to complete, then in the interests of balance I'll have to make it more difficult than it first appeared. Which puts you less in control of your story, because you'll be responding to unpredictable complications. Also, ambitious Secondary Objectives are fun, and may earn you more Infamy along the way.

Completing a Secondary Objective gives all Heretics involved (whether or not they are part of the Compact) 2 Infamy Points.

Secondary Objectives:
Convince the people of Imani of the power of science over faith.
Win the support of the people of Kifodini by showing how Chaos can meet all needs.
Find and nurture the corruption at the heart of the Villa.
Use the well-water as a vector of corruption of those within the Makuu.
Deal with the gun emplacements.

Do those work?

These work great, but you might want to consider phrasing them a little more vaguely just in case a plan falls through along the way. For example:

Win the support of the people of Imani.
Win the support of the people of Kifodini.
Find and nurture the corruption at the heart of the Villa.
Spread corruption in the Makuu.
Deal with the gun emplacements.

What you have above can represent your plan A for these secondary objectives, but it gives you options for plans B, C etc. Sound good?
