Game and Story Use

  • Establish a character who is extremely prideful and snobbish towards the PCs and who currently is in an "untouchable" position, and most PCs will only be too glad to arrange the humiliation all by themselves.
  • When these guys suffer misfortune, everyone will cheer, which makes it a nicely cathartic experience for PCs and players alike. After all, don't we all know such people in real life?
