Game and Story Use

  • Secret societies make great villains, since they can strike everywhere and you can never be sure that you have found and defeated all members.
    • Alternatively, in a region with an oppressive or authoritarian government, the player characters themselves might be members of a secret society in order to protect themselves and still pursue their goals.
      • Of course, the agenda of the player characters doesn't have to be benevolent - it can be a lot of fun to role-play belonging to a villainous secret society as well…
      • Frankly the two can be hard to tell apart - even allegedly benevolent conspiracies tend to be remarkably cavalier with the lives of "the little people1".
