Situation Box: High Society

When playing LHZ, have you ever thought "This situation would be more fun if it were a minigame?" It doesn't matter whether you're a player, GM or scenario designed; minigames are fun for all three. But they're not easy to come up with. That's why this Situation Box is a convenient resource for minigames that will be appropriate for various situations.

This Situation Box, "High Society", is focused on situations such as those which Shiroe and his comrades encountered while attending the Lander ball in the anime and negotiating with the nobles there. It containes 14 Scenario Actions and two information charts that can be used to construct a unique minigame.

  • Information Chart (Normal) (Secret)
These tables can be used with the standard 'information gathering' system. Information serves as social currency and can be used to increase the Social Counter.
  • Social Counter
The Social Counter indicates the degree to which the party has gained influence in the eyes of the Lander nobles. It is shared amongst the entire party. As the counter increases, the PCs will be able to fit into high society more easily. The counter begins at 0 and cannot drop below 0.
  • Fame Token
Fame Tokens indicate how well known the names of the PCs are among Lander nobility, and are shared amongst the entire party. They begin at 0 and cannot drop below 0. If the players accumulate too many, marbles or coins can be substituted for the physical tokens.

- Mission: The Adventurers are Cupid -

Your friend, the Lander Knight Wazza Yaktor, and a young noblewomen named Friune Mareene have cultivated a deep love between themselves quite unbeknownst to anyone else. However, whom they shall love is not something a noblewoman may decide on her own accord. In fact, her lordly father is right now preparing to force her into a political marriage! Her future partner is to be Oray Do Por, the second son of a noble, who bears more than a passing resemblance to a pig. At this rate Mareene shall soon find herself wife to the "Pig Prince Oray."

It would be well within the power of Adventurers to rescue Mareene by force and allow her to marry Yaktor. However, this would severely damage the relationship between Adventurers and Landers, and it would never be recognized as a proper marriage. The Adventurers must instead achieve their goal through persuasion.

The sample mission "The Adventurers are Cupid" is a demonstration of how to use the tools in "Situation Box: High Society." Venture into the world of Lander nobility in order to bring your friend love and happiness!

-- How to Play this Mission --

"The Adventurers are Cupid" is a Mission that makes use of the Round Progression rules.

The objective of the mission is to enter noble society and persuade the majority that the knight Yaktor and the lady Mareene should be man and wife. Using force to achieve the objective would bring Yaktor and Mareene happiness. You must act as Cupid for the two in accordance with the rules of nobility.

For this purpose, it is necessary to use the Social Counter. You must curry favor with the nobility in order for them to grant weight to your words.

In this Mission, each day is divided into four rounds; [Morning], [Afternoon], [Evening] and [Night]. The mission begins in [Afternoon], and must be accomplished no later than the [Evening] of the next day (a total of six rounds.) Each round lasts about four hours of in-character time.

-- Before you Start --

The party begins with their Social Counter at 0 and zero Fame Tokens. Get some markers, such as marbles, ready to use later.

However, the Pig Prince Oray begins with 3 Fame Tokens.

-- Difficulty --

If you wish to play this mission on Easy difficulty, have the players start with their Social Counter at 5.

If you wish to play this mission on Hard, have the Pig Prince Oray begin with an extra 2 Fame Tokens, for a total of 5.

-- What's the Social Counter? --

The Social Counter represents the influence of the party in Noble society. As it increases, Nobles are more likely to pay heed to the words of the PCs. The Social Counter starts at 0 and cannot decrease below zero.

-- What's a Fame Token? --

Fame Tokens represent how recognizable the PCs are within noble society. As it increases, Nobles are more likely to think of the PCs as noteworthy individuals. The number of Fame Tokens starts at 0 and cannot decrease below zero.

-- Playing the Mission --

The PCs must focus on increasing their Social Counter in order to convince the nobility to pay heed to their words, and make them sympathetic to the love between Friune Mareene and Wazza Yaktor. The GM may invoke various events as the Social Counter increases.

  • 7 or above: You have achieved some small measure of fame in noble society. Nobles generally remember your names and faces, and no longer act in an affected manner around you.
  • 14 or above: You are well known to the nobility by now, though your words still have little influence.
  • 21 or above: You have become notable figures in noble society. Some nobles will listen to what you have to say
  • 28 or above: You are now considered among the leading celebrities in noble society. People follow the trends you set, and your every word spreads with the blink of an eye.
  • Oray loses a Fame Token: You have dealt a powerful blow to Oray's reputation! An increasing number of people think his conduct unbecoming of a noble.

-- Score Calculation --

At the end of the sixth round, the Fame Tokens you have collected give you a bonus to your Social Counter.

  • 1-3 Tokens: Increase your Social Counter by the number of Fame Tokens you have.
  • 4-6 Tokens: Increase your Social Counter by the number of Fame Tokens you have times two.
  • 7-9 Tokens: Increase your Social Counter by the number of Fame Tokens you have times three.
  • 10 Tokens: Increase your Social Counter by the number of Fame Tokens you have times four.

However, for each Fame Token that Oray has, the PCs take a -5 penalty to their Social Counter.

-- Scenario Building --

All the actions available in "Scenario Box: High Society" are available in this mission.

-- Victory and Failure --

  • Victory Condition: At the end of the Mission, the Social Counter must be equal or above the Number of PCs times 7. All the PCs roll once on the [Exhaustion: Money] table. All the PCs may also roll once on the [Treasure: Valuables] table.
  • Failure Condition: At the end of the Mission, the Social Counter is below the Number of PCs times 7. All the PCs roll once on both the [Exhaustion: Money] table and the [Exhaustion: Spirit] table.
