So about two weeks ago, in game time, my party was at a city called Whitestone, where the town guard asked them to help scout on a group of brigands causing trouble in the area. The party rejected the job since they had a dangerous McGaffin they wanted to return to its rightful owners.
Fast forward to the present, the “brigands front” have advanced, and Whitestone has fallen! The party got a message telling them to meet what remains of the city guard in another town.
In today session we got to the town, met the survives and learned what happens to the city (apparently the brigands worship some dark and crazy new god!). Next session there going to be the assault on Whitestone, in hopes of taking the city back and stopping the brigands from sacrificing a lot of people.
What I want to do is give each party member an opportunity to influence this assault. We have a Paladin – with a Quest to find the brigands leader and defeat their dark god(ess); Shaman (Grim World); Druid; Cleric; and a Bard.
The druid already suggested using Eyes of the Tiger to spy on the enemy in the city.
