Game and Story Use

  • The tyrant is dead, and as the nation struggles to establish a new government, his heir apparent is finally tracked down and captured. Now nothing can go wrong, right?
    • The new government want him back in the capital as a trophy, others want more immediate revenge. The PCs could be on either side of the issue.
    • A rescue attempt is not impossible - a foreign power may want him in return for some information he holds (or at least to keep it out of the public arena) alternatively loyalists, pre-paid mercenaries or genuine allies may intervene. In a tribal society such as Libya, a group of well armed relatives might even step in. Where such things are taken seriously, there may be a blood debt to be discharged.
    • Some element in the new government may want him on their side - or at least to make a deal with him.
    • The new government may not be good guys either - some people may be already wondering if they made the right choice.
    • Perhaps the entire transport party just vanishes.
    • Wind back a bit - the capture might make a good wargame scenario, the flight and capture attempt might make decent RPG fodder, with the PCs either as hunters or trying to smuggle their prince to safety.
    • The heir could be a rallying symbol for partisans of a Lost Cause
