  • [SPOILER] The One That Got Away

    Hello all,

    After hearing the story of the priest that survived the Court Church in Lost Angels (the one that preaches against Grimme but is stil alive), one of my player wants to play him.

    My problem is, I can't find a clue about him and his identity !

    For all I know, he is only mentionned in Lost Angels, and... nothing more ?

    Can you help me ?

    First mention I can find is in the Classic book The Great Maze. He's mentioned again in Lost Angels.
    The preacher is unnamed in both books.
    I suspect they're referencing some other adventure or tale, but I can't find it. Or, they may be showing that it's technically possible to survive the trials (detailed in the Marshal section, the Great Maze, around page 118).
    I hope you find the above post useful. And not insulting, because I was trying to be helpful, not insulting; being a pedantic jerk, that isn't always clear.

      Forgot to mention he was also mentionned in The Great Maze, too, you're right.

      Well, I guess I'll let him play this, and if I ever find who he is, I'll adapt my game....

      Thanks !

        This is a very interesting thread!

        Although I can't reveal who that priest is, I'm impressed someone dug it up after all this time.

        We made an effort in writing the PPCs to tie up as many Classic loose ends as we could. Out of curiosity (and if you'll permit me to expand the thread focus a bit), what are all of your favorite Classic "ones that got away"? What plots yet dangle?

        Thanks, amigos!

          I started Deadlands as a player in 1997, when it first arrived here in France.

          Due to conflicting schedules, my GM stopped playing and gave me his books, that sat on a shelf for almost 15 years without touching (I was hoping he would return to it, and seeing how I enjoyed the games, I didn't want to GM it). In that time, we played every book of INS/MV, then some Shadowrun, until I got bored of those games and decide to try mastering Deadlands.

          I moved to Reloaded, read every book I could lay my eyes on, played a lot of games (IRL or Roll20)...

          All this to say, I don't have a plot still unfinished that comes to mind, except maybe one with a guy whose body is in a jar and the soul trapped in the Chinese Hell of Forever Falling in a Pit. But, maybe it was one of my GM's own plot, because I don't recall reading something that comes near this plot ?
