Generating the Compact

Post by The GM on Mon Aug 08, 2016 1:26 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.

Just a reminder that you need to choose 5 Secondary Objectives. Let me know if you need any help.

I am struggling some with this. I'm gonna have another go momentarily, having slept on it, and if I still can't wrap my head around it I'll ask you for assistance.

Okay, I'm not particularly clear on the appropriate balance between personalisation and vagueness. How is this for a set of objectives? I'll make a separate post once you approve...

- Build a force of local converts
- Compromise the supply of food to the Makuu
- Compromise the Makuu's leadership
- Neutralise the Makuu's weaponry
- Find a way to get an attacking force past the walls

I realise that I haven't specifically included the Villa von Klossner in this plan. Points two and three are both geared towards sowing fear and discord within the Makuu's population. Should they be a single objective? Several of the points above seem like they'd work best with "Get agents inside the Makuu" as a prerequisite, should that be an objective of its own?

I feel like I don't really know what I'm doing here. >.<

These look fine to me. There may be some overlap in some objectives but that is to be expected. The Klossners don't need to be involved, but you also may use them for other objectives. This looks great!
