Episode 454: Invisible Hands

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

If you give PCs a chance to have dramatic last words, it's only fair that you give significant NPCs that chance too. Use their last words to set up or reveal something that the players never knew or even suspected about their foes and their evil plans.

Make it so that later on they will want to have kept the villain alive.

In fact, this is a generally good idea. If the PCs kill someone or destroy something, make it turn out to be important for them later on.

With any luck, the PCs will get so paranoid that they'll stop killing bad guys. And then of course you can have them escape and cause even more problems later on. Win-win!
