First, this has nothing to do with weenies, second, this is not a completely developed or posted idea.

Cultists are kidnapping children, mostly little boys to ruin family lines, driving spears through them and placing them in a large pit.

The little boys are the weenies, the spears are the sticks that you shove through the weenie, now for the roast.

It takes place in somewhere that preferably has a pit, which is filled with fire (Bohger's Mountain), where the cultists have placed the children before lighting it ablaze. The heros come in as they are lighting the fire.

Heros stop the evil cultists and save the little children, or just take a nice seat and watch the sacrifice to evil gods. (Second choice gives points towards evil)

And that's the weenie roast.

Ok. Let me say, I'm totally offended by this. Spearing children? WTF. Leave the little ones out. I know its only a game.. but holy fuck dude.

Now.. perhaps spearing monks or paladins or something... that would work.

*Sigh* That's the idea, to spear children, it's to be offensive. Spearing monks and paladins just won't work, because they're going to be saving the children.

If the DM desires to stay on the good side of people like Sarah who say "WEED 4 ALL but no spearing children for Grusk," then have the heros get there as they start spearing the children, so maybe only one or none are lost.

Pfft ..

Complete apples and oranges.

Ok, lets go spear an innocent kid.

No. People that do that need to go smoke some weed and calm the fuck down.

Just saying.. since the children will be computer generated anyway... computer generate some monks or paladins, so their high order of whoeverwhatits can come rescue them. It wouldnt "take away" from the mob going to rescue these people, because well... theyre not real.

I dont care if a DM stays on "people like my" side or not... they can do whatever they want. I just think this quest is a little.... um... upsetting.

Anyway, it is just a game. So whatever.

Right. Whatever.

The quest stays, suggested revisions are now suggested to not be used.

I like the idea, I think it should be impossible for the character to rescue the children tho, it ruins the fun.  Reply with quote

Glorin, the idea is to rescue the children so there is that satisfaction that you saved people that barely come up to your waist instead of stomping them into the dirt like halflings.

If the children weren't able to be saved, then what was the point of the quest?

IDEA:

Change the quest so that the objective is to kidnap the children and spear them yourslef and then burn them for EXP.

Only if you're evil.

This isn't meant to be planned out, just a short "Feel good because we saved the day," thing.

My next character will be a Chaotic Good Kossuth Cleric (is this possible) Who sees innocent people as demons so he must burn them.

or maybe sorc would fit better, i just don't wanna rip off Jon.

Had a somewhat similar idea for a scripted quest where you have to steal babies to sacrifice on an altar to gain an evil item or summon some demonic henchman or whatever. Basic concept steal baby, toast it to get something wicked.
The parents of the child can report the crime and good characters can then try to stop the evil bastards, take revenge or stop the evil unleashed when they've arrived too late and maybe get a reward for returning the babies or the monster's head.

Not completely, it's just a head. Would you prefer to return the heads of 500 virgins?  Reply with quote

To Sarah - It is a quest and total reality in this time period to kill Children, it is a different world. If you can't stomach it, i suggest a new game. icon_smile.gif

Ok, first of all, it's pointless to say "this time period", because D&D and/or NWN doesn't happen in our reality, timeline, world, universe, or whatever.

Secondly, let's not forget that when speaking of our actual RL universe/world history, it wasn't necessarily an "evil" act to sacrifice a child. This was sometimes considered a great honor by the family to have their child considered good enough to be given as offering to their god/gods.

Not to say that isn't pretty f*cked up.

Heh, it's still talking about it, it's arguing the "realism" of this for a game.

If I wanted something real, i'd go outside, but I am guessing not everyone is that fortunate ... ?

In roman times children were not considered full human beings until the age of 4.
It was not considered shamefull to abandon them to die in the streets. Kinda hard to accept for us modern folk but there are a lot more of those historical/social issues throughout history where one group of humans is seen as not fully human.
Once a society crosses that line things go downhill fast. In modern society we may face in the future a similar problem between have's and have nots, between one religious or political group viewing unbelievers as less than human.
We may act civilised but these issues are closer to the surface than we care to admit.

In today's times, anyone who still acts like they're less than 4 I don't consider a full human being.

Technology continues to make it more and more possible for us to cheat Darwin's Theory again and again, and thus there are WAY too many people alive who would have been wiped out by the lions long ago.

Damn Stupidity-bloodlines. cussing.gif
