Player Character's Goals

Corridan - Slay Whisper. Causing your nemesis's death through your direct actions qualifies even if you do not strike the fatal blow, but another killing your nemesis without your involvement doesn't count.

Iliante - Meet in person and hear the words of your deity or your deity's chosen herald. If you worship a pantheon of deities, you must meet and hear a member of that pantheon... a herald does not suffice in this case. If you worship no specific deity, you must hear the words of an appropriate entity of the GM's choice.

Penance - Die in pursuit of your faith's goals and be brought back to life. If you die in circumstances that don't involve your faith, you gain no benefit. If your GM permits, you can instead remain dead and create a new PC inspired by your heroic sacrifice.

Shinjuko - Explore and conquer an area of at least 1,000 square miles, in the process decisively defeating a challenging foe. You must also lay claim to the land either in your own name or in the name of a leader you directly report to, and establish a stronghold or other fortification to defend it.

Telemakos - Regain your family's lost claim (of genie-bound nobility), either for yourself or another in your family. In the process of completing this claim, you must decisively defeat a challenging foe that seeks to deny your birthright.

Watch Order
1- Emerion & Devram
2- Penance & Telemakos (who benefits from Keep watch)
3- Iliante & some NPC
4- Shinjuko & Corridan
