Episode 1287: Eye, Robot

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

When the heroes in your game finally despatch the Big Bad Villain of the campaign, they are likely to leave behind a selection of mooks and lackeys who the PCs haven't got around to dealing with yet. Suddenly leaderless, these NPCs can react in a variety of ways.

Some might continue to blindly follow orders, despite the demise of their boss. These can present more or less formidable obstacles to the exit and safe return of the heroes to civilisation. Others, however, may rejoice in their newfound liberation. This can provide amusement, or can present problems of its own, as the heroes are suddenly confronted by hordes of less obviously evil people who might claim to have been coerced into servitude.

Killing the main villain might only be the beginning...
