Reward for releasing Spawn of Rovagug?


Lost Omens Campaign Setting General Discussion


Say you have a high level player who is a Cleric of Rovagug. Cool. Well, one of your life goals would be to release a spawn of Rovagug, or Rovagug himself. As a GM, what would you reward that player for releasing a spawn? Sure the sheer joy of watching total annihilation as the spawn marks a path of destruction should be reward enough(well XP too). Would you give some kind of artifact or weapon for this? What would be fitting and not insulting for there hard work.

No. Rovagug isn't interested enough in the wellbeing of his mortal clerics to provide them such boon for fullfilling their role in unleashing destruction upon the world.

If you (GM) want to reward the character, give him something that might well come from himself (semi-permanent morale bonus, a special feat that gives him fighting abilities somewhat resembling the creatures, one or two loyal and fanatic followers...)


I'd go with 'not being eaten' as the boon.


A Priest of Rovagug, the gorger, destructor of the world, expects a reward for releasing an ultimate form of destruction that hopefully will destroy the known world?

I guess that, being an insane homicidal megalomaniac, everything is possible, but in this case it should be delusional.

Rovagug is certainly in no positions to award or even recognize anyone and even if he were, he most liekly wouldn't stop his rampage long enough. Dito for his spawn.


hehe Pathfinder's Gods & Magic have a write up of old Rovi. He gives power (divine spells/abilities) to those that would free him or destroy things. And he will reward anyone that frees him with a quick death.


Sweet oblivion.

I'd probably give him a sphere of annihilation. Hopefully he can control that thing fast, because it's showing up active and working.

No, you want to be eaten first.

If you're going to go, go in a smile.

If you have any friends left at this point, they can maybe bring you back from the pellet trail ...

Death is the traditional reward for deranged cultists who succeed in releasing horrors.

It's as Jal said. Look to Pathfinder Gods & Magic for information. The cleric should be rewarded with a quick death. As a cleric of Rovagug, that PC should be glad, as that's the ultimate reward.

I thought it was green soapstone. You see so many cult idols made out of it, I thought it was some sort of anniversary gift.

You have it backwards. They are eaten first, and thus spared from the raving horror that Golarion becomes when Rovagug is released.

Sorta like a quick energy bar, before he dashes off to visit his ol' wrastlin' buddy - Sarenrae?

I stand corrected :)

Rovagug making the spawn from your cleric PC?


I think the best reward is the knowledge of a job well done.


After everyone is eaten, you are digested last.

I wouldn't go that far. You'll get eaten...last.

Considering the nature of digestion, maybe "and you'll get thoroughly chewed before you're swallowed" should be added to that.


Or if one wants to do something other than death, it'd *certainly* be a mystic trial! Be bathed in the energy of the spawn's awakening and gain mythic power to become a greater destroyer themselves.


Something along the lines of the campaign is over and everyone is dead. Congratulations.


A first-person view of a truly spectacular Kaiju rampage.


Uh... kittens! Lots of kittens, that's the ticket!


live kittens, dead kittens, undead kittens, multiheaded kittens, mutant kittens, kittens with big teath??
