Content of the article: "Is it bad to tell tales of dead, but legendary adventurers in your campaign?"
As I have been for a long time, I'm still working on my Legendarium of the Four campaign setting. I'm setting the mechanics aside temporarily, now shifting focus to deepening the lore (well, what little lore there was for a campaign setting).
There are basically-gods for each race called Far Ones — descendants of the Guardians (all-powerful Super Gods). Far Ones are as powerful as, y'know, Gods, because that's what they are. One of the races in the setting is Dragonborns.
One of the Dragonborn Far Ones named Irideshmar turned to evil. She sought to destroy the Atlan (fish people) race after both the Dragonborns and Atlans had destroyed each other for long enough (this war period is called the Red Age), and one man was having none of it.
Another one of the races is Aarakocra, and there are twenty-one Aarakocran knights, seven serving each of the Aarakocran Far Ones. One of the Far Ones was The Gryphon, a deity of strength, ambition, and zeal. The twenty-one Aarakocran knights were all paladins, each group having their own unique oath. The White Knights, who served The Gryphon, swore to the oath of willpower — basically "yeah I'll keep going to save the world no matter how big this hole in my body is."
Yeah so there was this war that Irideshmar started, the Aarakocras got involved, and they fled after six of the White Knights were killed. Rorrik was the last man (and last White Knight) standing, and he single-handedly managed to kill Irideshmar. Rorrik, an ordinary man, killed a God. He was an exemplary Knight and he would be remembered for all time.
WHICH BRINGS ME TO MY QUESTION…
Is it bad to tell tales of dead, but legendary adventurers in your campaign?
I want to write deep and interesting lore for Legendarium of the Four, and I want to touch on bad-@ss historical figures, but I fear that that will undermine the players and their characters' adventures once this setting gets off the grill. What are your thoughts?
- The Oath of Willpower – Play as the last man standing when all hope is lost
- Oath of Loyalty v.1.1: Play as a knight whose fidelity is truly unfailing
- The elves (aside from the dunmer) are the equivalent of the orcs from LOTR
