Mole: n. A spy who achieves over a long period an important position within the security defenses of a country. =Sabatour
One of my friend saw me playing solo D&D on school (on my computer :p) and suddenly 4 people asking me to host a session of D&D and teach them. How cute.
I said that I don't have any campaign available to play. (I only play on internet), and then one of my friend (who turns out nice at D&D!) tells me to make one.
So I start making the concept of the campaign (single session), and I remember that my friends who asked me to host one is actually people who like "to stab in your back" in real life. (Name any high school betrayal that you can think), so I started to make my concept of the campaign.
I decided to loosely based on the TV Show "The Mole", but kinda twist it. In the show, people tries to get the money (or treasure on campaign), but the mole is trying to sabotage them so they failed and consequently, the money goes on the mole. I decided that in the climax, each of this PC will fight the PC who they think is the mole. I decided that the mole wins if he is the last PC standing, consequently, if the mole is killed in the climax, the survivor wins.
But there is something that I concern.
1 How do I pick the mole?
Should I tell them in advance that "My friend, you are the mole" or tell them to pick cards on D-Day, and find out their role.
2 Should I tell the campaign in advance?
In the TV Show Mole, the mole is tell in advance the "things" they will face in their game. Should I do the same? (Assuming in scenario 1 the answer is I tell them in advance? )
3 The climax doesn't feel right!
Really? They start gathering treasure and suddenly in the climax, they start killing each other? It just doesn't feel right? Any suggestion?
4 How my mole PC will sabotage the game?
Causing other PC to death is of course a fair game, but in what scenario, my mole will sabotage the game. I need to give my mole a motive, that while he still sabotage the game, but also on other hand, making sure that other PC still make it to the climax battle royale with the mole itself.
And finally, the most important question of all....
Who is the mole?Does anybody has experience playing in this game style?
Any advice will be precious, thank you.
Note: I told them I will do their best and If I can't host one, at least my other friend can host it using the campaign I write...
