A great theme I've enjoyed so far, is one I've borrowed from Dr. Who. Introduce a creature that seems malicious and dangerous, but if the characters dig deep enough, they discover the monster is really the victim. After all, there is no simple black and white, good and evil in the World of Darkness!

How can I make the adventure fun, tell both stories, and make the cleric's story relevant, without the rest of the party boring themselves in the time I play with the cleric? I don't understand why you think the party is split or why is there a separate story. Or should I play alone with him before the session? Or even make it in a way I tell both ...

In my opinion, there are a bunch of possibilities : The cleric will stay for a long IG time, but short talking time (injured, and will return with the group soon after resting). The cleric will stay a short IG time, but a long talking time (healed fast, but discovers a bunch of things and PNJs before going back with the group) The cleric will stay for a ...

In our campaign, my character always seems to be running off on her own, either because she's not interested in what the other party members are doing or she has something else she needs to take care of. The GM will spend the majority of his time working with the other party members and their actions, and then on occasion he will switch back to my character ...

Support characters We do this all the time. When one or more characters are separated from the group for a long time, the GM gives the other players characters to play with. The players must acknowledge they are playing secondary characters and most protagonism must be with the main character. In your case, give each player except the cleric a goblin. Give ...

Burst Out Of The Enemy's Tribute Chest, Covered in Pork Chops This is not the only way to handle this situation, but it's what I always do. Always. You know that trope when the 'party is split' in a movie or TV series, where you follow one character as they uncover things or do things that affect the things the main party is doing? They see the secret, ...

I prefer the Forgotten realms version of Asmodeus compared to the ones present in any of the other systems that I've played in. The story that I've heard is that Asmodeus was an archdevil in hell that essentially made it his goal to end the war between the demons and the devils. During the spellplague when Mystra's domain was ripped from the planes Azuth ...

I have been called for, it appears. Canonically, of course, every origin or background of Asmodeus is a lie of some kind. While it's definitely accurate that he fell into Hell from elsewhere, and reasonably likely that his most well-known appearance is not the true nature of him, no one account best encapsulates the reality of what the Lord Below is. That ...

Asmodeus is actively spreading lies about himself Everything we think we know about Asmodeus, we think we know because Asmodeus wants us to think them. All of the stories about his origins, deeds, difficulties, and triumphs, are heavily, actively, and constantly monitored, filtered, and altered by Asmodeus and his agents. Nothing known about him in AD&D ...
