It’s a tamagusari, not a spiked chain :-)

Actually I wanted to go into the pagoda, but we really, really need reasons to do so. We won’t go there just because “it is there”…

A fäm subplot would be cool!

We were discouraged from going into the pagoda partly because of Saito’s tales of the naxty things that take our minds over, but I think mostly because we would be immediately attacked for defending ourselves and killing that guard. It’d just be a dungeon crawl.

I didn’t want to accept the duel mostly because we had no idea who the boss was. He could have been a dragon, or maybe Tiamat’s aspect herself. Or it could have been, as we rightly pointed out, a horrible trap. Besides, Kubo San isn’t the dueling type. Better to stick to the shadows. That, and Kubo San’s chaotic remember? Making deals isn’t his way of conflict resolution. He prefers “Tell your master, if I see his ass around here, I’m gonna kick it”. In the end those were the terms of the duel, and that’s exactly what happened.

I think it’s reasonable to make Kubo San roll to loose prestige from declining the duel. In fact, it’s quite extrordinary for a chaotic character to have such an influence in a world where honour is so important. Kubo San isn’t particularly honourable. He’s just well known. A figurehead. At least, it’s becoming more that way.

@Sektat: We’ll think of something. :)

@Marco: I think the situation played out well. We are – or at least I am – starting to see what kind of person Kubo San truly is. As for honor, I decided that in a small world like Kitsunemori with a small god like Fudo and figureheads that have character level nine at most, somebody like Kubo San is necessarily as important as Lord Kurobano, Morioka the mage, Katsuko the priestess, and Musashi the bandit. In fact, Kubo San must be gaining influence at an astonishing rate. And he’s working hard on his prestige! Given all that, I figured that Kubo San would start influencing the people around him. He redefines their value system. Which is what gave me the idea that the god must be affected if his followers start shifting alignment…

That’s soo cool… the alignments of the gods are changing!

You know what that means… soon prestige won’t be measured by honour. It’ll be measured in teeth!
