""The filth of Saruman is washing away""

There is something symbolic in the big bad's castle getting destroyed along with him. The idea that everything he built up is lost as well. Great literature uses this, and so have many well-known campaign modules. Anybody else have this come up in their own games?

It's not an RPG, but I just beat The Last Guardian, and this happened after the final boss was defeated. And yes, my eyes are still red.

"A spiel of a spell"

There was a campaign I'd... well, not really *played* so much as helped figure out what the villain would be like, and what they'd do.

TL;DR: A half-Vampire uses ACME's "turn 'em all into monkeys!" plan to kill everyone even slightly Good, except his cute GF.

Paraphrased full story:

>Half-vampire kid kills his Death Knight father and Vampire Queen mother, who've been hiding out in a crumbly, old, abandoned castle ever since daddy failed in conquering the world. The kid, Hades, decides that he'll be a better villain, because he's got two great examples of "how to be over-dramatic and dumb villains."

>Hades meets an outcast Druid girl whose powers function "naturally" (as in, instead of Magically growing trees, her spells accelerate their natural growth rate), due to its Necromantic tendencies.

>Hades (now known as Sedah Moonson) pretends to be the High Priest of the Wolf Goddess of Wheat, Harvest and Blood. End up getting a small village to believe that pouring pig's blood (or, even better, a virgin's blood) into their fields while chanting a special Prayer (which is actually just gibberish) will make their crops grow faster, without the downfalls of Druidic spells.

>Heroes accidently teleport to Sedah's lovely little village of willing workers, but not even their Paladin can sense his Evil side, as he wears a lead pendant of wheat and a sickle, and drinks willingly given virgin's blood regularly, thus making him look True Neutral.

>Heroes screwed up Sedah's plans... in the best way possible. Now he's got a group of Heroes to go find and bring back all the Artefacts he needs to desecrate to finish his grand master scheme; no one would be worried about seeing a Paladin finding an ancient Holy Artefact and returning it to its "rightful" owner, after all.

>Tragedy! The Paladin's nearly dead, and he was their healer. Good thing they can teleport to their good friend Sedah, who's well-versed with curing blood-loss and blood-borne diseases!

>Slip a little vampirism into his bloodstream. He takes the odd Fort and Con save, with a few Will saves sprinkled in, as a way for him to unconsciously repel the vampiric virus.

>Final battle time. Sedah's in his new, badass temple/castle that he'd had built, and is using stock-piled virgin's blood and other such ingredients, along with all the artefacts the Heroes had collected to power a spell matrix that follows the "Locate City" bomb, but is specifically targeted against any and all who are True Neutral or "better." Chaotic and Evil Neutrals are the only Neutrals who will survive, along with all other Evil-types.

>Heroes get ready to fight, and then the Paladin rolls one last Will Save, with a DC of 15, and fails. He's now mine to control...

>... Until he rolls a Natural 20 on a Mental prayer to his God, and gets a bonus on a Will Save... which he crits as well. He jumps at Sedah, and stabs Sedah --THROUGH HIMSELF-- through the heart with his Holy Sword,

>Sedah's last words are "Ah... I didn't plan for that..." as the spell malfunctions and (you know vampires' love for reversing things, such as names) goes off, killing off EVERYTHING that's Evil on the Mortal Plane. (Once again, Chaotic, True, and Lawful Neutral, as well as Neutral Good, are spared)

>All that's left is a distraught, True Neutral Necrodruid, whose fiancee was just killed by a group of heroes just beyond a door enchanted to keep her safe from the spell.


And yes, the whole spell idea was kinda ripped from the Loony Toons: Back in Action movie.

Well THAT campaign now has a million-and-one plot hooks.

If you or the DM haven't yet, check out the Order of the Stick's "Familicide" arc. It's got some similar themes to it.

And consider this- you have now destabilized and toppled every government governed by a Tyrant, wrecked and probably driven extinct entire RACES (when all the cruel-yet-successful hunters die, the tribe probably isn't gonna last long), and even in 'good' governments, probably just emptied dozens of critical positions of their Lawful or Neutral Evil overseers.

Not to mention the corpses and what to do with them. The sheer amount of Death permeating the landscape. Etc. etc.

There's probably going to be a LOT of natural Undead popping up due to this, which means there's probably going to be a LOT of people learning about necromancy. Lots of otherwise good people turning to robbery and banditry to survive, riots and anarchist and religious extremism rising to fill the gaps left by tyrranical regimes...

That's the glorious part of that plan. Either way has the same effect, at least in terms of the Undead and a rise in Necromancy. After all, part of the 'plan' was to marry a Druid whose powers were Necrotic in nature (The GM and I had had a discussion about how real life plants grow, by dying a little and pushing the dead matter to the outside as bark and the like. In other words, Necromancy isn't the sudden cessation of one's life, but a drastic smashing of the fast-forward button. A humanoid's body just can't handle aging that quickly {as we require food for the energy used}, and thus we die a lot quicker than something like a tree would.), and have her rule as Hades' Queen.

In a world of tyrants, if you're the strongest and smartest, you rule them all. And even with his death, the world would become a place where his girlfriend would thrive, whether she decides to continue being evil or not. Truly, I'd not made a villain, but the most over-dramatic Casanova wannabe romanticist, who was Evil for the sake of Drama.

And yeah, I've been reading OotS since I was in middle school.... holy hell that's been a while... Sadly, I haven't talked to that GM in a long time, because I'd only joined over the Summer on Skype, and was too busy in my Senior year of HS to keep in touch, which was really all my fault. I've gotten another GM to not only help me create a Leafblight (aka Necrodruid) archetype, but also a homebrewed species for Ponyfinder called Woodworks** that are perfectly suited for Druid tasks and the like.

**Basically, a Nature-based variant on Clockworks with their own quirks, like being immune to most airborne poisons, and having the Passive ability to create a breathable "air bubble" around themselves when the air is otherwise unbreathable. This makes them great as the tenders to mid-ship arboretums for spaceflight.

"Uh oh."

"Hmmm... Interesting..."

From my experience, nothing good ever comes from a GM/DM/ST using that statement.

That's because we all have that Jafar grin when we say it.

Maybe I should stop wearing the hat.

"Steven and the crystal gm guest?"

you should invite the person who does Steven and the crystal gms campaign comic for a guest thing like the mlp one did.

And I like what I was reading so far, I am on page 260 or something.
