Council vs Tribunal

Kurin, Siangham, and Nymar vs. The Tribunal of Fate.

In many Anime and Movies we are treated to exciting scenes where the protagonist and the antagonist trade arguments about their viewpoints as they are trading blows. Anakin Skywalker referred to it as ‘Aggressive Negotiations’. In this scene Three members of The Shrike’s Perch City Council move to intercept the powerful Tribunal of Lady Fate

This is a Social/ Combat encounter in which the Councilmen will be simultaniously fighting and negotiating with The Tribunal. The Battle will continue until the skill challenge is won or lost! If either side is defeated then the challenge is decided… If a Councilman is defeated, he or she can no longer participate in the battle and/ or the skill challenge. If a Bythos is defeated all DCs for the skill challenge go down by 2, and the tribunal loses one of it’s assists. Should the Council lose the Skill Challenge, they recognize the legitimacy of Lady Fate’s actions and stand down with a promise from the Tribunal not to retaliate against Shrike’s Perch. Should The Tribunal lose the skill challenge then The Tribunal agrees to a stay of sentence for one year, to allow the condemned to undo the damage that they have done and/ or to seek the Forgiveness and Blessings of Lady Fate in their endeavor…

Skills: Social Set + Creative Use of Other.
Antagonist: Tribunal Makes 1 check/ Round (Monad + 4 from 2 assists) vs. DC. Success = Fail for the Team!

6 x Successes: The Councilmen argue a ‘stay of sentence’ for THE WARLORD of one year to prepare a proper case in his defense and to seek audience with LADY FATE on The Plane of Shadows. Further they release the Souls of Educe the Brown and Bryar Fox. In addition, all three councilmen will gain level 17!

3 x Failures: The Tribunal continues it’s assault upon The Dark Tower in an attempt to destroy THE WARLORD’s physical body, and to claim his Soul(s). (They will also imprison the Souls of Educe the Brown and Bryar Fox) These worthies will be held by The Aeons until judgement is rendered by The Executor – and their Souls are consigned to Abbadon as befits them. (Making them food for The Devourerer…) This means the loss of your Clones, The Teleportation Gate, The Minions!, and The dark Tower Interface (No More Magic Items at 25% off!).
