Not to me... Nagako looked more like the sort of person the Scorpion would use to GET blackmail material, not the one to wield it...

You people and your sheet questions... :D

But no, as the Bear indicated, she didn't have Blackmail on Ansho... or anyone really. :mrgreen:

Based only on court, it appeared that Nagako got away with saying things that would have had other people exiled. I wasn't sure if there was an underlying reason she was always so...inflammatory.

She timed most of those inflammatory statements very well - usually right after someone else had crossed the line. She did get called out a couple of times, too, but didn't make as much of a deal of it as others did.

Oh! Here's one for our GMs-

Were there any, "holy crap, I can't believe that worked!" reactions to player actions?

Had to think about that one for a bit...

When it came to setting up this event, my intent was to dangle a few plot hooks in a few places, but generally let everyone run around and engage (or not) as they saw fit. I would then use that to shape how things developed, pushing stories that people seemed interested in (like the Eastern Village bloodspeakers), while letting others fade away (like Daichi and the elemental sites). This had the advantage of letting people tell me what kind of game they wanted to play in, although it did quite clearly result in some people getting pulled by a dozen different plots.

I didn't - and don't, generally - try to predict player responses or push them too hard toward any particular action. That's, in my opinion, a fool's game, since without fail a GM doing that will find it provokes the exact opposite reaction to what they want. Best to sit back and let things go, occasionally having an NPC drop in to nudge here or there if things get too out of hand.
