Quests

Posted on at

Sometimes a Ref will want to embody the Conflict of a story as a Quest, each Facet has its own Quest found here.

Awe ___ ♦

Quest

Brave location, object or monster / Charm character

The Quest may send the adventurers to a dangerous location, or to face a terrible monster or object, or instead they may simply have to charm an old woman they meet upon the way so that she will tell the secret of soothing the beast. Or perhaps they have to persuade their new boss to send them on that new job. The point is that the character on the Quest will have to use their Awe Facet to the best of their ability.
