evil campaign 
23rd-Dec-2004 04:56 pm
ok, I am running an evil campaign with 6 pc's all between level 9-12. I am looking for "good" creatures to smack the crap out of em. I have already had them face their major opponent, an epic level celestial half dragon cleric of pelor who has a bunch of eledeen rangers with him, (this is in Eberron), Now all I need is to make some good aligned monsters and such to keep them happy. Currently they are en route from Sharn to the demon wastes if this helps. Thanks in advance for any input you guys have.

Evil creatures are the best things you can throw at an evil party, in my eyes. Who says the enemy of my enemy is my friend?

the big thing is there is a necro-cleric in the party working his way to lich-dom.. He has Tomb touched feats and heals from negative energy damage.. So I want to get some "good" and "holy" aligned damage in his face.

Along that line, there's a line of Couatl-people that can get pretty zealous about good causesm they're essentially Yuan-Ti, only good and the abominations get wings and 60 fly speed

Does your necro-cleric heal from neutral damage? Cuz, it seems to me that there are a lot of monsters out there that are of no particular alignment. A monster is a monster is a monster. In other words, don't ignore the neutrally aligned possibilities.

I have a question for you? How do you keep the party from killing each other? Last time I ran an evil party, they bearly made it out of the town gate.

they need a common focus, or a leader. or a greater enemy to unite against.
of course there is always time when in fighting for evil can occur.

get them to work for a greater evil guy, or have big good guys about that they wanna hang out together for protection. LE works best for evil games IMO

I think LE is the only thing that will work. CE is too chaotic and NE won't work for anyone but themselves.

you just have to tell a good story and take into account that people are gonna in-fight. The best is to give them all an individual motive for quest, then the party just exists for better survival.

There has been loss of characters but the party finally got a little united. The first losse was the best... there is a cleric od Set, and he is secretive by nature... well the rogue figured that pinching a statue from the temple wouldn't hurt anyone, the cleric was rightfully pissed and started stalking him with bow and arrow (poisioned).

You can't stop evil characters from infighting, but you can let a few die and have to re-roll characters and it usualy stops. Their leader is an npc, warforged monk of the mockery. If there is fighting that isn't a result of actaully rp'ing, (aka: I'm mad at you outside of game, so I'll kill your character), Then I usually have something nasty happen to the offending character.. but if there is a legitimit reason for attacks, then go for it.

Mine didn't go so well. There was a mass brawl leaving two guys out of seven staggering off. One died from poison. The last thought he made it. One of the dead ones produced a pre-written will (I had seen it at the start of the game) that demanded his guild to hunt down who ever killed him and seek revenge.
Seven went out, no one came back and the dungeon that I wrote was never used. I re-used the traps and magic I'd invented, but it sort of killed the evening. What was much worse was the arguing of the players themselves. Glad the knives were in the kitchen. I don't allow any evil characters anymore, period.

Wow, a monk of the mockery that doesn't have skin to start with. . .
