Worthy Opponent
rating: 0+x

Basic Information

The Worthy Opponent is the equal and opposite of a hero in the story - someone, if their circumstances had been different, would have been a friend of the hero. Despite their difference, there is almost always some respect between the two, and while the Worthy Opponent will fight the hero, there may be some reluctance on his part.

Game and Story Use

  • Introducing a Worthy Opponent for the PCs will require some work - especially since player characters often are a violent and bloodthirsty lot, and prone to simply killing their opponents. It's usually easier to introduce them and the conflict in a social setting where the PCs can't simply kill their opposite number.
