Start[edit | edit source]

Bored

The wait time between attacks is... considerable and your heroes can only stomach training for so long. hero name has grown especially restless and wants to give the rest of the heroes another outlet for their time besides the mastering of killing. hero first name has four options for you to consider:

  • Build a library.
  • Build a tavern.
  • Build a squareball stadium.
  • Build an art gallery.

The hero will be randomly selected from those in the retinue who are not Lone Wolves and who have gained no XP from kills.

Build a library[edit | edit source]

Go Forth and Learn!

Nothing cures boredom like a good book. You approve the library and are eager to see how the heroes will benefit once it's constructed.

hero name will be gone for 6 years.

Outcomes[edit | edit source]

There are three possible outcomes. Aside from special cases indicated earlier, they are all equally likely.

Brain Food

The library is a rousing success! All of your heroes enjoy the breadth of subjects available to them and quickly develop quite the appetite for knowledge.

hero name has returned and all heroes in your retinue have gained the Bookworm personality.

The Literary Abyss

The library's opening is a success! But since most of the books that were donated were existential and pessimistic in nature, the people who read them gained a life-crushing loss of purpose.

hero name has returned and number of the heroes have gained the Pessimistic personality.

The number of heroes affected is randomly selected between two and the number of all non-Pessimistic heroes in the retinue.

SageMad

The library's opening is a success! That is, untill (sic) the Sagewright's Guild discovers that hero name had stolen most of the books from their library! They're returned the following morning, \"with apologies,\" but now the Guild has been infected with the worst disease imaginable: gossip.

hero name has returned and our current research project has slowed by 50%.

Build a tavern[edit | edit source]

Go Forth and Drink!

Nothing cures boredom like forgetting you were bored in the first place. You approve the tavern and are eager to see how the heroes will benefit once it's constructed.

hero name will be gone for 6 years.

Outcomes[edit | edit source]

There are three possible outcomes. Aside from special cases indicated earlier, they are all equally likely.

My Wham Bam Jams

The tavern's opening is a rousing success! ...until all of the alcohol is consumed before nightfall. With liquid courage coursing through their veins, the heroes agree to take on their greatest enemy: sing-alongs. The battle is arduous and leaves many a ringing ear, but in the end only the class name could walk out with some semblance of pride.

hero name has returned and all active class name gain the Patriotic personality.

Each class has an equal chance to be selected.

Trivia Night

The tavern's opening is a rousing success! Especially when the trivia contest between the classes begins and drink orders immediately quadruple. It's a nail-biting ten rounds with none of the teams gaining a clear lead, but then the final question arrives: "What's older, the Chalice or the Moon?"

hero name has returned and all active class name have gained the Bad at Trivia personality.

Again, each class has an equal chance to be selected.

The Night of Forgotten Disaster

The tavern's debut has been so awaited by the heroes that it only takes a few hours after opening to clean out their entire stock of alcohol. Accounts differ on what happened after that, but by the next morning the bowl of the chalice looks like the inside of the Refuse Pit except doused with jelly instead of jam.

hero name has returned and number of the heroes in your retinue have gained the permanent Tavern Hangover status.

The number of heroes affected is randomly selected between the two and the number of heroes in the retinue.

Build a squareball stadium[edit | edit source]

Go Forth and Compete!

Nothing cures boredom like points-based competition. You approve the stadium and are eager to see how the heroes will benefit once it's constructed.

hero name will be gone for 6 years.

Outcomes[edit | edit source]

There are three possible outcomes. Aside from special cases indicated earlier, they are all equally likely.

The Natural

The stadium has been finished! During the opening game that night, hero name quickly becomes the star player of the Wreckateers, dazzling everyone with 12 lobs, 5 hoists, and 9 consecutive jackknives. So spectacular is the run that in between innings, hero first name manages to also wed 3 couples, sell 37 racks of ribs, and lead the stadium in a tearjerking rendition of "Caberjack Snap."

hero name has returned, gained the Role Model status, and all heroes have gained XP.

The amount of XP gained by each hero is equal to the greater of 500 XP or 5 percent of his or her current XP.

It's Squareball, Not Riggedball

It took forever, but the stadium is built! The opening night game is a nailbiter... for the first three innings until both teams forget who was paid to lose to who and the game ends in a tie. Horse carriages are set on fire and the next morning the Squareball Commission announces a postponement of the season following the disappearance of hero name. Discontent spreads quickly.

hero name has been lost and corruption has increased in region name.

The corruption increase will be in a randomly selected outer region.

The Dropkick that Melted 1,000 Hearts

Finally, the stadium is built! The opening game attracts people from across the nation, including trainee trainee name who won front row tickets. Having taken a shine to the way-too-excited kid in the first row, the players call the trainee onto the field to deliver the opening dropkick. Spectators leaving that night would later say that kick was the best part of the entire game.

hero name has returned, and trainee name has gained the MVP Status.

The trainee will be randomly selected from those over the age of 5.

Loose Girder

You receive a note from a construction outfit currently working outside the Capitol. "During one of the on-site checks, a loose girder slipped out of place and killed hero name. It was an accident, but we're going to cancel all our construction out of respect. Sorry."

hero name is dead.

Hero will be dead and no other outcomes are possible.

Build an art gallery[edit | edit source]

Go Forth and Make Art!

Nothing cures boredom like making your imagination tangible. You approve the gallery and are eager to see how the heroes will benefit once it's constructed.

hero name will be gone for 6 years.

Outcomes[edit | edit source]

There are three possible outcomes. Aside from special cases indicated earlier, they are all equally likely.

Warfare Houseware Nouveau

The nation is ready for the Capital's new art gallery! It's a strong showing for everyone, but hero name dominates the night with a whole series of pieces based around used weapons turned into household furniture. The attendees leave that night all abuzz asking each other whether they've just witnessed the beginnings of a new art movement.

hero name has returned and gained the Lone Wolf personality.

Hot Buzz

The art gallery is ready! Opening night draws record-breaking crowds, with the sculpture of hero name riding an enormous bee getting the biggest reaction. The line to see the piece actually becomes so long that after a lone art critic skipped to the front, a riot breaks out. The staff saves what they can, but hero first name's sculpture proves to be the first casualty, along with the artist's spirit.

hero name has returned and gained the Disheartened personality.

Chalacious

After months of waiting, the art gallery has its first exhibition with the theme of "What the Chalice means to you!" The results are... lurid, and include a painting depicting the bowl of the Chalice as a giant, fanged orifice and a surreal sculpture of the Chalice with the two silhouettes kissing. The show provokes strong reactions, especially from the citizens of region name, who somehow view it all as incendiary propaganda against the region.

Corruption has increased in region name.

The corruption increase will be in a random outer region.
