Greetings Scoundrels !
It seems the time has come for my band to get in a war. They have angered the Rail Jacks, and pushes are coming to shanks.
But I’m quite confused as to how to handle the nitty gritty bits of the war. On one side, there’s a bunch of shadows with a secret lair ; on the other hand, there’s a bunch of public servants, with limited numbers and limited free time to break legs.
So far, the Rail Jacks clearly have the physical advantage - numbers and willingness to break legs. Also they’re clearly the provoked side : my band flipped their fence, refused to comply after being threatened, refused to comply after some of their friends got threatened, and also stole a briefcase in clear view in a crowded Gaddoc Station, an affair that ended with a smoke bomb and fisticuffs.
I don’t think any side is willing nor able to utterly destroy the other. But I’m not sure on how to handle a parley for peace.
My first instinct would be to involve larger organisations to negotiate at a higher scale, but it doesn’t seem very fun, and I’m not sure my daring scoundrels would follow that lead.
I’m looking for inspiration more than ideas, even if both are welcome !
So, how did Wars go at your table ? What are some good ways to handle this kind of friction like adults ? How did your band manage to clear things up with their sworn enemies ?
