Rolth Escaped.... Again!


Curse of the Crimson Throne

Liberty's Edge

So my party is about to finish up EfOK and they just took down the emperor and his goons. They fought Rolth back in book two but he escaped and became the emperors advisor. He fled from that fight as well. Now he's double mad and looking for double revenge.
And ideas on where he would fit next. Maybe in book four along with the mantis assassins or should I save hom for the final book for a last confrontation? Or plan for both? He's really good at those last second dimension doors after all.


What can I say? The crowd LOVES it when the villain pulls off a shocking last-second escape! Now they'll just be waiting for me to make my DRAMATIC RE-ENTRY!

That said... personally my favorite story of his return later in the plot is this one by Mikaze. I still want the stats for that necro-mecha thing.

Rolth in my game has the voice of The Monarch from the Venture Bros. I just read what you said in his voice.

Thank you for that.


Back when I ran CoCT, Rolth also turned into a recurring villain, I had him reappear in book 6 after providing the party clues to who was organizing the blood samples for the Queen. It was a memorable rematch and gave the party some important clues as to Ilesoa's final game plan.


Party is about to go down the elevator, probably next Friday. We'll see how they react. They were already kind of irritated with Rolth over the Dead Warrens, and they've spent most of Seven Days assuming that he's the end boss, asking around and researching him, and coming up blank looking for him (because he's in the Temple busy cooking up the next gen of Blood Veil).

I've given them hints that they're probably dealing with more than just one rogue Necromancer, but so far they haven't put two and two together. Lady Andaisin is going to tear them up.

Anyway, my party's been mostly lawful and merciful about capturing villains. But somehow I don't think that Rolth will be taken alive. Either he escapes or (more likely) gets killed badly.

Mine has the voice of Mark Hamill's Joker.
