>>82308021"Are my methods unsound?"

>>82308021"I am a slayer of monsters, the record of fact bears this out; why then would one cower in fear and label me villain, lest they were a hidden monster fearing to be slain? My full measure is known, written in blood and song, none can rightly paint me as anything but righteous..and you say now that "everyone" fears a righteous man? Why would that be? None but monsters need have fear of me and yet the world is a trembling monstrosity. Nay, kind faggot, I will not turn back. When I enter a village to slay vampires it is the thrall who protests the most and casts suspicion upon my arrival. Such opinions are irrelevant. Evil will be purged."

Smash the wheel if you wish, but first you must cut free the stagnant blood soaked into its spokes. If you don't understand by the time you meet that they cannot exist without twisting and perverting the world with their every breath, you're not ready.

>>82308021"I am a product of your own actions. It is not my fault that, despite your capability to record an account of your own history, you feel the need to alter or forget what has transpired for your own purposes. What happens next was written among your neglected tomes and fabricated recollection a hundred generations ago. To blame me for this is to become the pinnacle of your own hubris."

I was honestly surprised when the party did this to Captain Ghostmaker, the necromancer pirate. Mostly because she'd kept the new party member as a slave for months and had slapped said slave in the face for spilling a tray of butter. She'd also slaughtered one thousand and one people as sacrifice to a god, in a pact to get her dead husband back. The party basically proved to her that the god in question would never fulfill his part of the deal, told her that she needs to turn her life around and do good in the world, and let her go. It worked on her - having lost everything, even the hope of her husband's revival, Ghostmaker set out and hasn't been seen again in the narrative since.
>>82308021>PCs giving him a free space on the bingo board of conquestHell yeah, he takes the hand. He plays along with it and laughs his way to the bank. He might even get their support and finish his great dream. What a fucking time to be alive that the only people that were able to unravel his convoluted sweater of international conquest are willing to let him off without removing the pieces of a god still living in his guts.
>>82312999The big question is will she come back? Players always love to see their actions having consequences, and it's always nice to encourage non-murderhobo behavior. Also if all the slave had to deal with was a slap in the face that isn't too harsh for a fantasy slaver.
>>82310139>your hand is a vital spotshit dm
>>82313082She absolutely will. I'm not sure when or where, but it'll definitely happen. If nothing else, she's one of the few people who's pieced together that the game world is actually a post-apocalyptic setting.The slave had to dealt with more than that, but the slap in the face was there to reinforce "hey, this woman that you're currently business partners with is very much a bad person"
>>82308021I like villains who are tragic and too far down the road to stop, and villains who are absolutely convinced that they are righteous.The former would appreciate the attempt, the latter would spit in your face.
>>82308021>Orcus, Demon Prince of Undeathhe'd respond with the verbal components of the next lethal spell he intends to throw out

>>82308021He'd giggle and mock them. After all, he is not the bad guy, but a bored demon doing everything for fun. If it costs lives of everyone in New York, that's a sacrifice he is willing to make

Depending on the specific campaign, some iteration of "I'm not a monster or a villain and I don't care if you disagree" or, "I'm not doing this because I have to, I'm doing this because I want to."

My people have worked too hard for this, and I can't let them down."Governor Krokel (portly bureaucrat):>"Er, wait... someone believes I'm a monster? WHY?!

My primary villain is an interstellar entity that floats from system to system consuming the star matter and darkening worlds to destruction by side effect.He does this because he can, and thus he must. What sort of self satisfaction can one feel if they're denied or deny themselves the exercise of their natural capabilities? If they never reach and experience their potential?What happens to the planets and their inhabitants now removed from their sunlight is inconsequential. It doesn't affect him. Do you worry about the worms below when you pluck an apple from the branch?In short, the usual "Come back to the light!" plea holds no water because this isn't someone with conflicting morals making a decision. He's an event on the horizon and you'd have more luck convincing the tides not to rise.
>>82308021Listing responses from various villains in the same setting with no context>It's was too late hundreds of years ago. The world sat by and watched my homeland get swallowed whole. No help. No aid. Not even refuge. Vengeance dictates I do nothing, and let them all share the same fate. Justice tells me I must do something. Something your ancestors never did. When you meet them, you may ask them why. >You think we have not tried abstaining? Every moment not at feast is in pain. I. Will. Not. Starve. >Monster? Hah. I serve a number of citizens you could never comprehend. To them, I am a hero. Making their lives better, bit by bit, inch by inch. I toil tirelessly to put but one more grain of rice on their plate of plenty. My people give me my strength and deserve my respect. You are not my people. Stand aside, or be crushed by the march of a million boots.
>>82308021>Shut the fuck up filthy subhuman
Farewell, my shadow, you who stand at the end of the path I chose not to follow. I wanted my own world, so I don't regret my choice. I would make the same choice all over again. I will continue to choose this path!

>>82308021I think not, Yankee. You kept the Nazi compound to yourself and your Western allies but neglected to share with your eastern one until the new millennium. Don't give me the communist excuse, you gave it to the Russians readily. Just to keep us behind you. Then, when we tried to close the gap you sabotaged my nation, and the Black Rapture nearly killed us all. Nearly. My glorious China is but a hollow, haunted husk, but I will haunt you like a phantom limb, a wrathful wraith of the east, and I will take the billions of lives that were taken from ME. I am The Sovereign, and you are a star spangled slave. Your words as as worthless now as they were then, the same cowardly weasel words your suits say to escape responsibility, escape destruction. I will hear no more of them.

For my current character, it wouldn't even get to that point. He would all-the-sooner disable the villain so that he can gloat over his victory.

>>82308021>"Monster? I am no monster my friend, but you are right in saying that things didn't have to be this way.">"Alas, it is not I the one that decided these tragic courses: Mine is the destiny to rule this land, to bring peace and prosperity, to make order out of the chaos that your king left behind when he died. I am no pretender, for this is not something I merely believe; is something I know. Yet, despite this, you insist in opposing my rule, and rather prefer the flimsy pacts of old and the daggers of your neighbours than the gift I bring. You are not only the worst enemy of those common me that follow you; thinking that resistance is virtue, but also an obstacle to harmony and peace.">"In light of these facts, I am ready to use cruetly against cruelty, and to force you in chains to kneel if necessary. My birthright shall not be denied, for the throne longs for a king, and that king is I."
>>82318299Based and honorpilled.
>>82308021You are correct. Over the course of this endeavour I have had every chance to turn back, to resume my peaceful existence. The thought crossed my mind on many a diffucult night. Yet here I stand, contemplating the idea and my legs do not move. I am compelled to stay. The maxims of protecting my people and annihilating our enemies takes precedence over the maxims of peace and preservation. So friends, if you too hold a fire within your hearts that is as integral to your being as the very name of your birth, I ask that you come forward and die for your ideals as I would die for mine. Otherwise you may remain here and I assure no harm will befall you.>t. final antagonist of my first campaign

>>82318832it's for a futuristic cape setting I've tinkered with for a while, tech is between GiTS and Batman Beyond. During WWII the Germans developed a superpower serum that was supposed to win the war, but their primary research at a psychic flying fortress (a previous campaign) was destroyed and the research, samples, and scientists distributed among the Allies bar China. Supers banned from military service, Cold War proceeds mostly as normal (Silver Age comic stuff). During this time Dr. Dai, a brilliant scientist and charismatic politician, rose to a position of prominence in China. He's a Lex Luthor/Ozymandias kind of guy, superhumanly intelligent. This is the kind of power that can slip under the radar. He had some really radical ideas about the role of China on the world stage and the superiority of the Han, calling for genetic enhancement, eugenics, blood purges and conquest dressed up as the most efficient, cost effective, logical thing to do. This didn't make him many friends in the party, who saw him as a dangerous man who could turn the whole world against China and a danger to their careers, so they kicked him out in the early 90s and he got buttmad. Taking the name The Sovereign, he went full Dr. Doom looking to rule China for himself, the make it the very best it could be by any means necessary. He operated out of Hong Kong for most of this time. Around 2007 the other Allied nations finally gave China access to the serum, even Japan had it by then. Sovereign implored the CCP give him a sample to reverse engineer, to make as much as possible as fast as possible to make up for lost time. They agreed, by 2010 he'd done it and by 2013 injections for high social creditors had begun. It was a crapshoot in 1940 and it still was, but it worked. Anyone with powers was deputized to Tiger Squadron and called on for emergencies, but otherwise lived their lives. The CCP took credit for the whole thing, and kept Dai out in the cold. >Cont.

>>82324854He was furious and attacked China several times, each time repulsed by the expanded Tiger Squadron of his own creation. Cucked by his own hand. He eventually fled to Taiwan in his submarine lair after Hong Kong returned to Chinese control, seething. About this time on a day like any other some Chinese guy got his shot, stayed for his four hour observation period, and went home. Days later his power developed, Rogue's at range, and immediately lost control of it in a major city. Tiger squadron was called in and that just made it worse. He fled west of Xi'an but was pursued by more and more squadron members and eventually he just overloaded. His power had become error and terminated the program violently and on a massive scale, killing everything sharing his characteristics (ie humans) in a killing wave from Beijing to Kunming and half of Hong Kong in an instant. This was the Black Rapture, billions gone in an blink. There's a lot of repercussions for this but the point is Dai blamed the US as he saw them as the primary beneficiary. He lost his mind, tried to rebuild the whole thing with androids like a dollouse nation, tried to get Chinese nationals to return but there was something wrong with the place now, some tangible vile wickedness in the land. He even convinced himself there were alternate dimensions and searched for them in the hope they were merely transported, he was right but they weren't there. Now and old and bitter man he pulled every string he could, called in every favor for one last glorious shot at who he thinks inflicted the wound on him, the United States. Land purchases, other villain's old lairs, political and corporate blackmail, old promises, he put everything into this. He planned a coup to overthrow the government and make the US into his old vision for china, essentially start again. But he was old now, and went with the old "Brain in a jar supercomputer" method of life extension. >Cont.
>>82325055Ah! You """smarties""" are trembling in fear, while I keep the world of twelve safe.

>>82325159He didn't want to draw attention while he did this so he performed the final sequence, initial connection and boot (projected to take a few months) in low power mode. He didn't know if detection tech would catch up to his cloaking tech in that time and was convinced by his lieutenants that it was worth the risk. They betrayed him however, setting power to minimum and stealing his coup plans for themselves to make themselves kings. They were defeated by the All Americans, their leader Mr. Miracle thought the plan was great and enacted it himself, that coup was defeated at great cost and now capes are on a very tight leash. Meanwhile Sovereign's boot took about 27 years, that's a lot of time to think especially if it's the only thing you can do. He is mad as fuck. He's had his dolls producing warbots in China the whole time, he just needs to ship them over. But everyone he knows is dead. The Black Rapture was a freak accident of nature, perhaps a warning from reality not to fuck around like that, but the US had nothing to do with it. Dai doesn't see it that way, and he's in way, way too deep to change his mind. If he's wrong then he put his brain in a supercomputer, endured almost 30 years of existential loneliness, and built a robot army for no reason. TL;DRChinese Lex Luthor becomes Chinese Dr.Doom, copypastas a magic superpower potion that prevents him from ruling a country he loves and then destroys it, goes though the stages of grief before returning to anger, blames the US, vows to conquer it, becomes Chinese Dr. Wheelo, is betrayed at his hour of glory, has his plans stolen twice, and is now mad as fuck and in too deep to stop now. He has no friends.

Then we got a pardon for her and took her with us to show her the power of friendship and what having actual friends is like. Took quite a while, but after a few months she started to come around. Was a great feeling to help someone who's isolating themselves in hatred through the power of genuine care and affection. DM went way above and beyond what the official modules had in store for her.

Turning back would doom this world.I am no monster. I'm making a sacrifice for this world. Whoever sent you to stop me is the true monster. No get out of here and leave me to my work.
>>82308021Oh boy, I mean, sure, like, why not? I guess you're right, I never thought about it this way. Okay man, I'll stop. Sorry about the whole thing.>You did it! Millions died, but in the end, you have finally defeated the mad sorceror and ended the war for good. Everyone gets 500XP!
>>82308666I don't know why people call you the father of lies, you seem like a honest dude, Satan
>>82331636True. Really he should be turning people into whales.
>>82308021>I will not abandon my cause, the daemons must be eradicated to the very essence of evil and chaos its self. Anything less is to flirt with multiversal anilatation. If accomplishing this means that I must be a monster, then my morality is not so valuable.
>You fail to understand. This era of order has gone on for far too long. It must be brought to an end to bring forward a new era of prosperity! Do you realize how many people will be condemned to suffering if I fail?!
>>82331636You have to take into account the environmental changes since then. All the nuclear tests during the cold war with all the fallout still has effecs today. Although i wonder how the ozone layer was back in prehistoric times.
>>82333205How about turning people into sharks?A
>>82331636Most dinosaurs would be too big to get cancer
>>82308021Lets see, of the games I'm currently in....>5e gameI'm pretty sure we work for the BBEG, your boss's goal being something along the lines of "Reunite the fragments of archfiend Lucifer the godslayer" isn't typically the behavior of someone who's good, she'd probably get huffy and try to shrink the party or something>PF gameI don't think we have a BBEG, save maybe the asshole who built that laser lighthouse and/or the race of litteral trolls (in both senses of the word)>Stars without numbersWe got one scene that none of the PCs were even there for of some pirate guy monologuing like half a year back and haven't seen even a hint of a BBEG otherwise, he probably wouldn't accept though>Zelda themed Worlds without Numbers game we sometimes play instead of the aboveWorst case, Ganon would laugh at us and kill us cause none of us are LinkBest case, Ganon would sadly laugh hat himself and kill us cause none of us are Link>Lamentations of the flame princess, we also sometimes play instead of the aboveWe are literally wandering money hungry hobos, we don't stick in one place long enough to attract anything that could be a BBEG's attention
>>82334767Probably thicker, considering how there was more oxygen back then.
>>82308021There choice was never mine or yours. We are both fighting the power of fate, and there can only be one victor!
>>82308888Beelzebub (the Christian name of the Babylonian and Philistinian god of the harvest, Baal) is the lord of liesSatan (Samael, the serpent) has always been on the up and up, even if you really should read the contract
>>82308021>So because you're trying to make peace you count as surprised>He takes your hand and casts inflict wounds at 7th level
>>82308021"No. It has to be me. Someone else might fail."
She would just give out a mad cackle. Only way to persuade her to step down is if she would be convinced that she is being manipulated by the aether in the air from the local sleeping fallen god. She may be crazy and evil but damnit she will be crazy and evil on her own terms.
>>82338106Try fucking her in the ass, you stupid cuck
>>82308021>Monster? I'm *saving* these people from a life of servitude and sharing Grandfather's bountiful blessings!
>>82308021>I think I'll hang you above the Hadeans. I want to see if you'll say such stupidity to them while they're tearing your flesh away with their beaks.
>>82308021I would let him role a dice and see if he gets a natural 20. If not, the BBEG wins initiative on his next attack due to all the yakking.
>>82308021>Uh... Can you, like, shut up?
>>82308021What sort of person would choose to go to prison instead of achieving their goals?
>motion to guards>one of the PC's father who went missing years ago comes out flanked by two guards, his skin flayed off and chunks of muscle torn off, gibbering and shaking endlessly and his eyes filled with terror as he can doesn't recognise his son
