Alright, since this section is for home rules, I figured this would go here. I need some input on the workings of a Lovecraftian Cult (centered around Abeloth) that I am creating for an adventure. The ideas I have are as follows:
- The cultists can perform rituals to gain temporary use of the force. The ritual used is the sacrifice of an innocent victim (innocent meaning not as evil as the one sacrificed to, Abeloth), then using the blood to draw a pentagram on one's self while chanting "Iä Iä Abeloth, fhtagn! fhtagn!"(none of my offline gaming friends read Lovecraft, so I figure it won't sound too shameless ) The bonus it gives them is +10 to use the force for 12 hours, and 5 force powers to choose from (neutral or dark side). Since the act to gain the powers is blatantly Dark side, the use of said powers doesn't need to be labeled as a giver of DS points.
- The cultists can release a small portion of Abeloth into the world, but I don't yet know how to stat tentacles with the force.
Do either of those rules sound very broken?
