Betrayal and Intrigue by Ballig

DM Feature #4 (The Sorcerer's Tower) - 28 November 2009

A game of cat and mice. Six mice. And one damned big cat. A dead cat, but don't let that fool you. What would /you/ do with eternity? Well, the lich (he's the cat in the above metaphor, in case this wasn't obvious) my party has recently encountered seems to have a bit of a sick sense of humour. Does he have a vested interest in being such a pain in the ass to them? Probably not, but when you are the closest to immortality you can likely get, what else do you do with your spare time?

The following was an out of character exchange that particularly amused me as the DM in this campaign:

DM: Felthik gives the adamantine box to the lich.
SOLAN: What? No he doesn't.
DM: Felthik?
FELTHIK: I do, actually.

Betrayal! Intrigue! Scrambled eggs! That box, by the way, was thought to be the lich's phylactery. So what will they do now? Die, probably. When a cat gets bored of his prey he eats them (that's another metaphor).
