2022.01.19 01:43 nelsonbt Nerfing party spells that would ruin your adventure, the right way!
My campaign I’m DM’ing is currently five level 15 characters, where each level corresponds to a distinct adventure. Their level 15 adventure is a road trip; they have to walk from Elturel to Ten Towns. There is a wizard there who can help them dispose of a WMD in their possession.
I’m going to populate the trip with various adventures, starting with helping a coroner investigate a bunch of murders in a town en route.
My party has Zone of Truth, and has repeatedly and easily used strong logical arguments to strongarm NPC’s with it. Zone of Truth would ruin my detective adventure.
The Level 14 adventure was rescuing Elturel from a Baneite coup (a second time, because we did Avernus). The party raised an army and liberated the city.
Well it turns out that the Baneite cultists occupying a major city used to bring enemies of Bane to the gallows, and cast “Zone of Truth” on them, so a “priest” could declare him lying or confessed, and guilty in both cases. Baneites screwed up, because they did this when executing known innocents. Word spread that the spell was bogus. But the nature of the bogus mess spread and mutated. Several theories emerged about Zone of Truth:
It forces you to confess.
It’s makes you think you did it.
It makes it so you DID do it.
And the actual truth: evil people can pretend to cast it and make anyone guilty - but you can get around this by sometimes by resisting, but otherwise by refusing to answer questions.
Zone of Truth apprehension spreads culturally through the nation. Most people now simply refuse and distrust its casters.
Now my party can do the detective story with Zone of Truth temporarily nerfed.
By the way, how I prevented the party from teleporting to Ten Towns and forced them to walk, was by giving them a weapon of mass destruction that can’t be teleported; the WMD is being brought to Ten Towns because a wizard there can help dispose of it. That’s the framing adventure for this level.
