Simon Thistle

Postby NightflareMoon » Mon Jun 25, 2012 4:28 pm

Could someone tell me everything they know avout this guy? People have been telling me stuff, but its been mostly about how 'he smushed another guy into the ground by calling 313s.'
I just want to know a bit more than that. It'd be a great help, cheers.

Possibly in the planning section for Saga 2011?

Otherwise:
Simon Thistle was a Larkant warrior who lived in The Heartlands with his wife Morita and young son. In the year 100 (62 years ago) Erathil the High King of the Elves betrayed all the other races and took the Heartlands for himself.

Simon's wife believed the Elves were coming to get them, Simon believed he could protect his family but she didn't agree. To 'protect' their son from a horrible death at the hands of the Elves, she killed him and when Simon discovered this she killed him too (and then presumably herself or she was killed by the Elves).

The three spirits haunted the house (which later became the base of the Sentinels, unknowing of its history) turning it into their own personal hell known as "The Realm of Torment" which drew in other tormented souls. During the events of last Saga, a group of ritualists was formed to link a landmark building on each different land to enable the party to travel around. Unfortunately this house was the one chosen. More unfortunately one of the ritualists was a follower of the God of Madness, Neffekeffen. Even more unfortunately, when a follower of Neffekeffen takes part in a ritual it usually goes wrong. It did, killing the other ritualists in horrible ways and unleashing the power of the Realm of Torment into the world.

Every night at one or more of the linked houses, the spirits of the other ritualists and that of Simon would arrive and attack those nearby. Each night Simon would get more powerful (his damage grade went up). Unfortunately the heroes of the world didn't get round to fixing it for 10 months, hence 313. It should be noted that most high-level monsters/NPCs don't call higher than six.

Simon was eventually defeated, his spirit laid to rest only to be summoned back to take over from Neffekeffen (who recently stole the title from the previous encumbant) as the God of Dreams.

I'm sure they said more, but that was pretty much the highlight, and it was the peeps that went on the pre saga adventure last weekend.

Cheers for the story too, very informative.

Slight amendment to the story. Simon and Moreta argued, Moreta killed Simon in a fit of rage with a blow to the back of the head with a chunk of wood from the fire then went upstairs to kill their son. She then hung herself.

Sounds like it could be an interesting guild concept - the knights of sleeping.

DAVE will approve of it.

It's only a game.
