OSR OOC: The hunt for the blue palace (Troika!/Yoon-Suin, full for now).

A note on damage: Although your characters probably feel "low level", they actually are quite tough for humans. 10 damage would kill most humans (he rolled really well). That 6 damage cut probably reached the bone.

So the game is going well (I hope!) and good progress has been made. It's not the time yet to answer the question (you haven't found the blue palace!) but it is time to think about this - once you've found the palace, will you be satisfied? (ie the game folds up) or will you want to keep going?

I like it so far. Haven't really considered playing on beyond that point, so I'm not sure yet.

The encounter we just did didn't quite the way I anticipated, but that's ok. I didn't expect the tamasic men to survive. So well done! :)

I wonder if the tamasic men no longer count as failures to the fates?
The Yoon Suin belief system says that this life is a punishment for past misdeeds. However, if they live "well" in this life, in a future life they will be rewarded with a better station...

What was "supposed" to happen (I say "supposed" because the PC can always, and often do, change the outcome) was a fight on the tower top, the tamasic men panicking, and flying away as a group. BUT they are weak fliers, they start losing altitude, the spiders notice, abandon the tower to give chase, catch them and devour them as the party watches from the top of the tower. Very dramatic stuff, but I was worried about this scene - would the PCs feel powerless, unable to stop the event?

Well you just prevented it. Well done!
