I was watching a movie the other day, you know, the kind that has a prophecy and the hero that has to overcome the bad guys before they cement their power. There were dire warnings that if the baddies weren’t stopped, they would become immortal and rule forever.
What if that happened? What if balanced wasn’t restored? What if any hero after that was doomed to fail?
I think that would be an interesting story space to explore. But what could the players strive for? What would their goals be like?
