Start[edit | edit source]
Today first hero name and second hero name attended an anti-war rally outside the Capital as peacekeepers and the speaker, a highly respected elder from region name, made some very inflammatory statements about you and the war. Things got out of hand and now the speaker's in critical condition thanks to your heroes, and a growing mass of unruly citizens are fuming outside of the Capital. Nobody knows what to do.

Pretending to punish[edit | edit source]
Outcomes[edit | edit source]
There are three possible outcomes, all equally likely.
So Sayeth the Ruler
You send bulletins out to the mob stating that the heroes will be severely punished. They seem to accept this and the night passes by uneventfully with only a slight increase in vandalisms. Afterward, the heroes are warned to lay low for at least a few weeks just to be safe.

You tell first hero's first name and second hero's first name to wait and see what happens, but they don't act reassured.
