    DfL tweaks

    Hey everyone.. finished Skyseer last month and about to launch into Digging for Lies. I'm considering making some tweaks and wanted to ask my fellow DMs (and especially @RangerWickett) about the wisdom - or lack thereof - of these tweaks.

    1. I'm fleshing out the Expo even further, using the 1851 London Great Exposition and 1853 New York World's Fair as models. Having read only the free preview of Always on Time (I'm waiting for the softcover to be available before ordering), I got the crazy idea of having one of the exhibitors be

    Luc Jierre, who was in Risur - perhaps even at MacBannin's manor - testing early concepts in magical lighting (outside of the dead magic zone) prior to developing his lantern. Since he's not yet in the Ob, there's no reason that I know of for him to be secretive.


    2. I don't have a Vekeshi Mystic PC, but I do have a member of the execudoras dola liberta. I'm considering adapting the VM subplot to be driven by the execudoras instead - or even adapting it more faithfully and have
    Spoiler:
    Tyler Starke be a wannabe spy for Ber instead of a wannabe VM. He overhears an off-color comment from the Berian ambassador at a state dinner and tries to take matters into his own hands.


    Re: #2, there's a comment about further VM subplots in AoT, which as I said I haven't read yet. Would there be any conflict there if I made the change? Does anything else break?

    Ash has this super-cool secret identity, but I haven't given her much to do with it yet, other than offing Valando & Eberardo.

    Not that I could see. In fact, I think the primary VM-related plot works at least as well for a executdoras dola liberta with pretty much no modification. It's a perfect fit as far as I can tell.

    That's if I'm understanding your question, anyway. I haven't read through DfL really well yet like I did AoT and I don't have any special insight into what's coming in later adventures.

    2 is fine.

    Don't do #1, I'd say. It's fairly important to Always on Time that the PCs not know the other passengers on the train. If he spots them, it ruins the entire point of them going undercover as spies.
