The Earth Temple Falls and the Party Goes to Verbobonc|
Hi, I'm new here and I'm in a bit of a quandry, well a couple actually.
The party just decimated the Earth Temple in the last session. No deaths (although everyone came really close). But my main question was, now that the Earth Temple has been destroyed, what will the other temples do? The Air Temple is too weak to make a move while the Fire Temple is too far away to effectively take control. What about the Water Temple? They're fairly close and they have the kuo-toa power and the means to do so and they'd effectivley have control of the Bridge Complex.
With the party heading north to Verbobonc, I figure that the doomdreamers will send some recruits to fill up the empty ranks in the Earth Temple, probably a couple of Troglodytes. But, I'm wondering if the Water Temple will take advantage of the situation and control the Earth Temple from behind the scenes, maybe sending some troops there to help reinforce it.
Now, the party wiped out the forces at the main gate and they have just gone to Verbobonc to get rid of some of the loot they have acquired. I'm planning on having the Main Gate being guarded by a small contingent of recruits, but I just can't believe that the recruits there wouldn't be commanded by anyone. So I'm looking for ideas of who or what could be the commander there. I have access to the MM3.5, MMII, BoVD, FF, CCII, and the ToH.
Ideas are welcome!
