Episode 366: Children's Crusade

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

If there's anything better than having a deranged psychopath bent on revenge after you, it's instilling that desire for vengeance into a child. They have so many more years for the hatred to fester and mature. When the reckoning finally occurs, it will be truly epic.

If you want to have a truly demented and tragic villain in your campaign, find a child who can - rightly or wrongly, it doesn't really matter - take an interest in making your PCs' lives miserable. Let mature over a decade or two. Then unleash.
