The Titans, enormous and nearly godlike animals have posed a threat to the small patches of civilization around the world, and since anyone can remember the Hunters and others have fought them, culling their numbers and keeping the areas around cities safe and sound.
However, a new voice has arisen among the hunters. The newest leader of the lodge, a seeming visionary called “Valkint” has proposed a new way of doing things. He has proposed that the hunters ought not to kill the beasts, but rather, the titans ought simply to be driven away, contending that mindless beasts are not responsible for their destructive actions and that they, thus, don’t deserve to die.
Many hunters and many outside the group have taken to his call and have been calling themselves, “The Drivers” while others want things to progress the old way, thinking this new way of doing things will lead to disaster.
For the most part, the world is not fundamentally different from the default Gargantuan setting that I based it off of. However, I drew inspiration for this story from the 1740s play “The good-natured Man” by Henry Fielding, more famously known for the novel “Tom Jones.” In the play, the man who is “good-natured” nearly brings his family into disaster because he is so willing to oblige others and doesn’t like conflict.
a few things to consider.
- I am blind and cannot provide art for my cards, and I use mostly custom cards in my challenges.
- Although the drivers have an animal rights angle to them, I am not by any means meaning to belittle animal rights groups, which I myself support.
- people who create characters with Wraiths are to name the wraiths and tell me what powers the wraiths give them. The wraiths should have titles like “Blizzard” “night” or other simple terms that explain the nature of the powers they provide (in this story, wraiths are too alien to have normal, pronouncible real names so they give themselves titles.”
