I'm cool with that.
Hurray indeed!I'm okay with either option (indestructible or dying quick and fast), as both can be good, story-wise, especially with OSR type hex crawls.
Mr Prim, you said in the recruitment thread that Zsofika and Lukacs were partners - business, romantic, or both? I'm happy with any of those options.
Have power back. Hurray!
A query on how you all would prefer to run the game. There's a few things embedded in the above response that you could follow-up on, either conversationally or with a roll. Would you prefer that I call those out openly/directly, or that I continue to signal/hint to them as I have above?"You would have to inquire with the Watch Captain for the specifics," the Mayor replies, "but I have been assured that she has ruled out any mundane mischief, petty prankery or revenge, rival townships, enemy forces, and other such matters as would be wrought by men."
"As for the other, we are a law-abiding township, my Lord, not a backwoods village of Bizalom. We know our place. We do not obstruct, intervene, or comport our own hunt for witches. We have learned our lesson. That is your sanctum, and yours alone." She looks solemnly contrite.
She waves her hand to dispel the gloom and dismiss the subjects of her next comment. "I am certain rumours abound... how could they not! But that is not for any of us to interfere upon. I assure you no official of the Bridge of Saint Cleareyes has impinged upon your investigation. We all defer to your authority." She looks a little defensive as she makes that last comment.
I'm also curious about whether you prefer parantheticals like the above one or not. Making them early on, while personalities are still new, makes some sense to me, though I may not continue to do so with every personage throughout the tale. On the other hand, if you prefer managing the web of folks yourselves, I can do less of the reminders and asides.The Mayor cracks into a hard candy with her teeth from a half-full bowl on her desk. She offers the bowl around, if any of you are interested in such fare as a morning treat.
"The mother was driven from town, a servant in the household of the Notary. Petra Inksblood. Unfortunately, we do not know who the father is."
