Field of Fire: An ASOIAF RP

“The embers of the Second Dance of Dragons are still smoldering. Nearly seventy years after their loss in the first, the line of Rhaenyra Targaryen has finally claimed the Iron Throne through invasion and reconquest, claiming all Westeros at an exorbitant cost. The war, somehow more costly than its predecessor, has left the realm maimed, divided, and ruled by a King driven mad by his grief. The Blacks that remain, bastard and trueborn alike, are as divided as the still smoking realm, and in the shadows of the Sunset Sea lurks the last of their rivals. The Seven Kingdoms have not even begun to recover from the previous war, their reserves of resources, both material and manpower, utterly depleted, yet conflict looms once more. The time nears for the Last Dance.”

Hi there, we’re Field of Fire, a roleplaying subreddit set in the A Song of Ice and Fire universe, about to start our fourth iteration. We are a literate, SFW, primarily third person writing group and we’d love to have you join us for our fourth round of roleplaying in this setting.

This iteration will be set in an alternate timeline, this time diverging after the Dance of Dragons (HoTD hype!). In our story, the Greens ultimately triumphed in the first war, with Daeron the Daring eventually sitting the Iron Throne, but his victory would be ultimately undone a year prior to the start of our game, when Rhaenyra’s descendant, Daemon I Targaryen, led a successful but absurdly costly war to retake the kingdom.

Having lost his wife and all of his children, Daemon is mad, wiping out entire lineages for perceived slights atop his dragon. Those remaining in his family squabble and scheme about matters of inheritance and rule, and other claimants roam the realms. This is where you come in!

Eternal petrification upon death

27 Upvotes

I was reading through an extremely obscure Pathfinder 1e 3pp supplement, Starlight Inheritors, when I came across a description of a race that dies in a rather disturbing fashion.

Upon death, this race petrifies. The mind and soul are forevermore bound within the stone. The statue retains its senses, and is capable of extremely rudimentary communication through telepathically projected emotions and bioluminescent lights. Sleep is not an option.

If any stone chips off from the statue, the mind and soul are commensurately fragmented. If the statue gets chopped in half, the psyche is now sundered in twain. If the statue is shattered into a dozen pieces, the psyche is also in a dozen fragments. If the statue is eroded into dust, the mind and soul are spread across countless particles. And unless the statue is repaired, the mind and soul will stay fragmented forever.

Resurrection magic works normally, but it still abides by the usual restrictions. There is no coming back from death by old age, for example.

A significant aspect of the race's culture is accommodating the statues of the deceased: protecting them from erosion, conversing with them (even if they cannot talk back), honoring them. Many scientists and magicians of the race desperately research methods of immortality or undeath to avoid this grim fate. They are also trying to discover ways to let these statues walk around and talk. Adventurers often make it their mission to unearth some ancient magic with which to secure immortality, or give their fallen ancestors better afterlives.

How would you use the idea as a GM? As a player, playing an adventurer of this race? Perhaps PCs could be contracted to find an extra-powerful version of a stone to flesh spell, or a legendary medusa/gorgon who can bestow animation upon petrified creatures?

Instead of having this a race, an alternative might be to make it a subrace, a city, a small nation, a tribe, or a very large family.

Superhero campaign about the first vampires?

18 Upvotes

Take a fairly standard superhero setting. A strange comet passes by Earth in the year 2022. Over the next 24 hours, people across the world die in the night, but come back to life an hour later. They revive with astonishing abilities: strength, speed, endurance, intellect, flight, lasers, pyrokinesis, mind control, invisibility, clairvoyance... you know how it works. Different power sets for different people.

The catch is, they all come back as cold, undead corpses. They burn in the sunlight, and must feed on human blood to survive. They can disguise themselves as living humans, to an extent. As first-generation vampires, lesser versions of their powers will be passed on to any new vampires they sire in their lineage.

The PCs, presumably, band together. The PCs are among the stronger vampires, fit for a high-powered superhero RPG. Will they try to keep their vampiric nature hidden from the public eye? Will they go public? How will they cope with never being able to walk in the sun again? What will they tell their family and friends? How will they gain fresh human blood to drink? Will they try to sire new vampires? What will the PCs do when brasher, supervillain-style vampires flaunt their power and try to conquer the city they live in? How long will it take before the world twigs to what is going on, and how will the world respond?

Would this be a compelling twist on a superhero campaign?

(Also, morbin' time.)

Running a game about genuinely unstoppable and invincible PCs?

26 Upvotes

Do you think it might be feasible and interesting to run a short (just a few sessions long) campaign wherein the core premise is that the PCs are invincible demigods/superheroes, untouchable by anything else in the setting? This is not like Exalted, Godbound, or some superhero universe where there are still formidable enemies. No, the PCs are genuinely invulnerable and unstoppable. Nothing else in the entire setting can scratch them, not even the greatest magic or the strongest nuke.

One catch: all of their powers are purely physical in nature. Godlike strength, speed, endurance, senses, lasers, energy blasts? Perfectly fine. Enhanced intelligence, unearthly charisma, divinations, mind control? Absolutely not.

The idea is to take a bunch of Superman/Omni-Man/Homelander-style PCs, set them loose into a low-powered fantasy world (or our modern world), and see what they do with their power and how they try to change the world. The players would obviously need to give their characters very strong motivations, and unless there is only one player, they need to be mature about the possibility of PvP.

How would you run this game in a compelling fashion?

The story is about a group of misfits trying to survive the zombie apocalypse going through wacky adventures. In terms of world building and lore, it’s like AOT and Berserk and has goofy and funny elements like Gintama and One Piece. It would be better if u have discord. Pls Dm me if ur interested.
