I wanted to start this session with some book keeping and wrap up from the last session. First let's deal with characters. So Mythic GME 2e doesn't have any rules for leveling up so I will be borrowing some things from other games with mechanics I enjoy. Monster of the Week a PBTA game has an experience system which I will tweak for our purposes.
So the entire crew gets to mark one XP for simply Participating in the last Session. However, Mah'r is the only one that failed a roll. I rather enjoy the idea that XP is a measure of learning from ones mistakes. So it fits that we should gain XP from failing rolls.
Now on to our Drama Sheet!
After the conclusion of each Procedural Drama adventure, roll on the Procedural Drama Epilogue Table to see if there are any additional surprises in store for you.
Since this 'solo' game of mine is some what interactive we are going to roll up the Epilogue and a few ideas and vote on them. So here is our first roll.
Epilogue:: 61 new setting
So my original thought on this is the Rhomox Temple.
But we will roll. up two more locales and see what we might come up with.
Locale:: 78Resourceful 42Full
Our first roll makes me think a new Ys field was discovered. And our second roll makes me think this is possibly one of the Plateaus or mesas of the Ivory Reach. But we shall put it to a vote!
One other thing that was mentioned about the agreement the Cult and the Union came to last session was that there would be a Cult appointed liaison for each lodge. Let's ask a Fate question.
Is the liaison one of our rivals? Likely yes Xhanes? Exceptional yes.
Oh boy party conflict is looking gnarly in the future already. Something to keep in mind if we roll up Mental Barrier. But that is all we need to do for end of session book keeping. Let's play the addition of Xhanes to the Crew out in the fiction.
I sat in my bed dumbfounded. It was still the wee hours of the morning, the early morning rays had just begun to crest above the horizon. In the dim golden light Bo and Betroode shuffled and moved things around.
“Wait… wait he's what?” I sputtered.
Betroode still half sleep it seemed stopped moving my desk out of the room, “Xhanes, he's our new Liaison. And our lovely Tytaan says he's bunking with you. Congratulations you get to babysit the fox.”
I looked at Bo who only shrugged his large shoulders as he dropped down a new Cot.
“Well when does he get here!” I shouted after Betroode as he left. My heart sunk when he wasn't the one to respond.
“I’m already here.” Xhanes said as he sauntered into the room.
Alright now onto session 2. We will not move the chaos factor this session as the party was able to dig themselves out of wise trouble even if they still had to take a hit. Let's set the scene for this session.
We will roll on our themes and Locales list as a baseline for the scene.
3 🎲 Water rumors
2 🎲 Ys ruins
This makes me think we recently got word of a new water source. Down in one of the deep ruins. Let's roll up an action
Hinder freedom makes me think we are dealing with an irate and taciturn Xhanes.
Now let's check our scene expectations.
Scene:: Interrupt scene 2
Current:: Context 87
Mean:: Transform agreement 92 3
An interrupt scene and transformation of the agreement 🤔🤔🤔 I think that Xhanes might be trying to make a play here to possibly revive his Lodge. Something to clarify after the events of the FrostFin Expedition the Vyhya lodge was disbanded. That does not mean their loyalty to Xhanes or Llarri has faltered. I think this could make for something fun.
Vauwa is obviously involved here but let's look at our crew and roll up two others.
We currently have 6 people in our crew. So we roll twice.
1 🎲 Ahkom
4 🎲 Mah'r
So our current delving party is Vauwa, Mah'r, Ahkom and Xhanes.
A note about Xhanes we won't treat him as a full blown character we can play but as an NPC due to his rivalry. Over time we might win him over and that may change but for now he isn't a friend.
One final roll to see how long it has been since the Grand Hall Agreement. We ought to come up with a formal name for this, drop your suggestions in the comments.
I'll roll a d8 and that will be the number of weeks it has been since the agreement and Xhanes having moved in.
Weeks since the agreement and Xhanes' move? 8 🎲 weeks
That is two months, so we have a bit of habit and history starting to be built. Let's see how all this plays out in the fiction.
Ahkom sat across from Xhanes the look on his face pure disgust. Mah'r ate her Delve stew as if she hadn't heard Xhanes speak.
“Say that again.” I said still a bit shocked myself.
Xhanes shot me a look of irritation,”You have no say in the matter, boy. This is a matter for your blessed Tytaan.”
In the last two months he'd grown more unbearable. It wasn't because he was a bad bunk mate either, honestly wish I could say it was that. No, he just had a way of always getting under Mah'r skin and as such the last two months had been hard on all of us. She tightened the reigns, that's for sure.
Ahkom stood with a start spat into the fire and stared daggers into Xhanes as he walked away.
“This field could change everything. If it's big it could mean a renegotiation of the agreement. I'm willing to forego my report.” Xhanes said readdressing Mah'r.
She grabbed another bowl of stew and sat back heavily,“And what would My lodge owe you?” She stared at him over the top of her bowl. She was as unreadable as always when it came to dealing with Him these days.
