I made a list of 3 GM advice subreddits called RefAdvice.
I’d make a few d6 tables so I could make books on the fly.
- Ancient Human
- Undead Scholar
- Fighting Manual
- Political Treatise
- Accounting Ledger
1-2 Famous Author
3-4 Fairly Obscure
5-6 Totally Unknown Author
Does this mean you could end up with obscure Githyanki erotica?
I’d start from Hell, maybe with their memories of the battle where they died as things they can get back like treasure.
When they die maybe their soul starts at the nearest Devil’s stronghold and they have to wheel and deal to get that soul back (and it might not always be worth it).
Agreed, this should be a discussion with the player, not an in-game consequence.
Consequences are great and important but it seems like the player was out of sync.
In my experience, acts of torture upon NPC’s is often a sign of frustration. Might be worth discussing how information is given out and how players can get the information they need for their characters to make interesting decisions as part of the above discussion about consequences.
