Here’s the situation: The crew I’m judging is a cult who worship an old god called The Reconciler (taken at random from the list of forgotten gods at crew creation). We know that he is “sinister” and “radiant” but honestly, not much more than that, which is okay because the crew has been busy with plenty of other things just surviving in Doskvol.
Anyway, one of the crew is a Cutter named Finn, and Finn was pretty ambivalent about the whole cult thing for the first part of the campaign. He was just kind of in it for the money. Until… he had a near death experience (he traumaed out). He took Obsessed as his trauma and decided that he is now obsessed with the Reconciler. Finn is now a true believer.
So he’s decided that the Reconciler saved him for some higher purpose and he wants to know what it is. To that end he’s spent quite a lot of downtime activities (long term projects) in prayer and rituals, etc, to get an clear idea of what the Reconciler wants with him.
And the thing is, I don’t really know!
So I thought I’d ask out here. I like the idea that the Reconciler did save him for a reason, but I can’t quite come up with what that reason is. Any input or ideas would be greatly appreciated. He finished out his long term project clock last session so I need an answer for him this coming session (Thursday).
He’s not really cut out to be the leader of the cult, and besides, one of the other players already fills that role. I was thinking he might be the Enforcer, sort of a Sword of God type, but he’s already the cult’s muscle, so I don’t know how different or special it would really be and I’d like for there to be a singular, distinctive purpose.
So… what do you think?
