Hey folks, I’m hoping someone can help me with the fronts I’m developing. I’m having trouble with the distinction between an adventure front and a danger.
So at the high level, I want to have this evil empire that’s trying to invade. They’re trying to do this in two ways: 1. with an army and 2. by infiltrating and sowing dissent and rebellion so it’ll be easier to take over. The evil empire has basically a sultan and a bunch of advisors, who all have their own agendas, so like advisor 1 is warlike, advisor 2 is cautious, advisor 3 is sneaky.
So when I’m writing my campaign front, I got the description and cast part figured out. Now correct me if I’m wrong, the dangers would be something like:
Danger 1: The invading army
Danger 2: The evilest advisor
Danger 3: The internal rebellion
The part that I’m struggling with is what’s the advisor’s impending doom? Step 1, they stir the rebellion pot (but that’s a separate danger), step 2, they declare that their army will march (but that’s also a separate danger).
And then what about the other advisors, and the sultan? They all have their own agendas, they’re not a unified group. So maybe each advisor is their own danger?
And then the other part I’m struggling with is that danger 1 and 2 are both external, like they both are part of the evil empire. Then danger 3 seems quite separate, even though it’s caused by danger 2.
So should the internal rebellion be, a separate front? Because I want this to come up a lot, and within the rebellion they don’t know they’re being incited, so there’s a bunch of personalities and different strategies, and different things going on within this rebellion… so how do I know when something should be a danger and when something should be a front?
