Gaming in the Universe of… The Watchmen Part 6: Ozmandyus
The Watchmen as reviewed by the family
Ozmandyus is an easy person and a hard one all at the same time to integrate into your game. He’s royalty in your high fantasy setting. Or better yet, the true power behind the throne making everything work. He is THE richest man in whatever universe you are playing. Esy to add, harder for your characters to meet, unless they are HEROES, the type of character that royalty demands to see and be seen with.
In the back however, it’s a different story. Adrian is the string puller. He has access to the highest technology your world has available. In a high fantasy setting he may even have some magical abilities. He believes, no scratch that, he KNOWS that what he is doing is the best possible course of action for saving his world.
If your players decide to help him out they might be cast away as mere pawns in his over-arching plans. If your players elect to oppose him, Adrian will not only have factored in their betrayal but may have figured that their “betrayal” is the best way to keep them out of his hair.
His only true friend is Bubastis, his magical a/o genetically modified lynx.
