Reign: Nagalisitu – Episode 7

The Hunting Pack has returned to Nagalisitu to introduce religion but society has changed quite a bit in the interim. How do you introduce faith to a society of philosophers? Debate is one option, but it will hard to convince a society full of skill orators. There are other ways, but dare the Pack use them?

    Yeah the pack will use em,. Last update was great btw. Counter cobbling and double action guillotines. 😀

  2. This was a bit of a mixed episode for me. I liked a lot of it, but it felt like a couple of the players didn’t like the changes they caused and just didn’t want to (or know how to?) engage with the scenario and thusly played their characters .. out of character.

    Like if this was their first time back through the portal they might act like that, but the second? They dealt with asshole nobles without going crazy, so flipping out about this was jarring. It isn’t like the leaders of a mercenary band wouldn’t know how to negotiate with a variety of societies and shit. Also for some reason four hands is perfectly ok with old magic (which he should distrust and hate even more than he does normal magic)?

    Maybe if it took them more like 30 minutes to come to some sort of grips with the situation instead of 2 and half hours it wouldn’t feel as jarring, but it just went on endlessly with a couple players shouting.

  3. oh man it never even occurred to me that they might go back and find a GOOD society and HAVE TO RUIN IT

    that’s dark as hell and a marvelous change of pace I love it

  4. “No More Masters”

    Hmm. Cheska… might have forgotten about that in her years of exile. But then the pack is trying to shoehorn mindless obedience to authority via religion into Ursula K LeGuin Utopia, simply because last time they were here it was tribal warfare and priests were all they brought.

    (Also I think it’s all fine in character, David has literally been sent on his holy mission about a month ago, Sean is playing a nobleman where might makes right, Jason’s revolutionary is amused but indulgent, Ross of the Beaver Utopia is in love, Aaron is ofc, Aaron, and has found something he isn’t trying to set on fire).

  5. Klingsur and Four Hands inability to handle peace sideswiped me a bit on this one and I failed to steer them back towards the plot in this one. However, I think I planned for it better in the rest of the campaign and it becomes a pivotal part of their characters and something that actually drives the action. I was a caught flat-footed on this one though, and there’s more hemming and hawing than I’d like.

  6. TBF the biggest amount of hemming and hawing was “Who goes through first”.

    And this *was* a situation where it actually mattered, not one of those times you say it so it matters later on (Very sly). What if they sent 5 redshirts through first? O_o
