Plot Suggestions & Inquiries

Plot Suggestions & Inquiries

Have a great plot idea? Post them here!

Some things to keep in mind:

  • If you are suggesting a Reality Storm, please remember that these require some sort of trigger influenced by character(s) or situations within the city

  • Please don't expect responses to all posts made here. The mods will read all submissions, so if you don't receive some tag to say as much, it does not mean that your suggestion has been ignored

  • Ideas that can involve all players/characters are the best! Please try to keep this in mind when making your suggestions!

  • Have fun!

Comments are UNSCREENED so that discussion with other players can be facilitated. If you wish to keep the plot a secret, SCREEN your post and we will get back to you.

Worst Enemy

[identity profile] 2010-05-21 09:27 am (UTC)(link)
This is an event that I've seen in another game that could have amazing application in The Wake.

The idea is that people become their worst enemy. However, it is not just being replaced with the person who they perceive to be their worst enemy, but rather they become the person they perceive their worst enemy to be.

As an example, Crawford's worst enemy is the Senator. A man who is quite charismatic and comes across as a rather upstanding citizen to most people. However, Crawford has only ever seen the hideous side to him. So if Crawford became the Senator, he would be a version of him that was a super creeper, leered at people and was prone to sudden, explosive anger (in a much different manner than Crawford himself can be).

Balthazar would become a sickly, whiny, self-loathing John Constantine.

So it can be a drastic variation or something more subtle.

There are a ton of reasons to trigger something like this. We have a fair number of "worst enemies" in the game already. Rion and Cain, Autobots and Decepticons, demons and angels, and....uh....I know there's more but I can't think of any others right now.
