Npc question...

Recommended Posts

Okay me and a few others are aiming to bring together some lowlevel villians under the flag of the Shadow Academy (Most Wanted source book). The question I have is in the use of The Headmistress. Is it okay if she was used as an npc in certain threads?

In Golden Age there's a misogynistic nazi posessed by the Norse God of Thunder. The concept of him makes a perfect enemy NPC for Divine. But he was deposessed and killed and Eldrich made the Norse gods sign The Pact. How much retcon would it take to get him back?

You're a tiny bit off: the Norse Gods were bound by The Pact millennia before WW II, just like all the other gods. The Nazis were able to get Donar/Thor the same way folks get gods today -- they allowed/invited him in. (And then mystically brainwashed him to be a Good Lil' Nazi.) The agreement the Aesir made with Eldrich was that they'd never interfere in Earthly affairs again, even if invited/summoned.

So it's not so much a retcon that's needed, as a way to explain how it'd happen, since the Aesir promised they wouldn't interfere, since Donar might not like going back tot he place where he was made to act against his will, and since Eldrich makes it a point to stop others from forcing the Aesir's hands.

Difficult, but not completely impossible.

Maybe Malador might have something to do with it? If Eldrich doesn't like the Aesir being invited over to his place, but Malador doesn't like Eldrich... Fun and profit?

I don't see why not -- seems like that sort of thing happens all the time, though I can't come up with precise examples. He might not have Mjolnir, but then again it could be kind of cool to see what the Nazis might have come up with as an equivalent using WWII era super-science?

A child fathered by Donar while he was on Earth (either via 'normal' some Nazi woman, or via Valkyrie, the other Aesier-empowered Nazi villain) would be a very acceptable NPC. :)

Seeing as Donar's son would be in his early 60s now, lets just say it's his great grandson. Hm, we could make it even more squickier if the breeding was kept in the family. Gotta keep the mix of divine and Ayran blood pure :twisted:

Immunity to Aging could easily keep the son very youthful even today. ;)

I don't think the Nazis would do in-breeding, at least not close in-breeding. They knew enough about genetics to know that you need a sizable pool of stock to avoid certain deformities. That said, Aesier-influenced genetics could prove quite resistant to such 'errors' (though his "brothers" and "sisters" may not be so fortunate), and the pool may have started out fairly big but over the decades bred amongst each other so much that they're essentially one big extended family (and just a generation or two away from some serious genetic problems, which could drive him out from hiding to seek more 'recruits').
