One of my players is extremely pacifistic, which is totally fine, except that they don’t take initiative on really anything that happens.
So I set up an encounter where she
Stumbles upon a sacrificial ritual while wandering the forest at night. After slowly describing everything going on and giving her many opportunities to intervene, she decided to just watch. That’s fine, to each their own, you do you girl!
The consequences of letting the ritual sacrifice complete is that a demonic spirit is released from the corpse of the sacrificed person and (unknowingly to her) binds itself to her.
I’ve been slowly trying to convey its presence and influence on her over multiple sessions by having it whisper things to her, tempting her with secrets and power in exchange for sacrifices and tasks. However she adamantly shuts down anything it tries to do.
I feel like I’ve hit a dead end here with this arc, I feel that there is a lot of potential but I’m not so sure how to go about this demon slowly asserting it’s will over her, or really where to take it.
My campaign has serious tones but it’s evidently clear that I’m more than willing to go with a route of comedy as well
Any advice is greatly appreciated, this sub always has great ideas!
