Ok, so I'm working on my next town. This one started with the question - What would the Dogs do if the sorcerer was 12? I then added to this with the though we haven't had and Sex in a town for a while. This led to 2 seperate pride -> false doctrine chains, outlined below.

1) Brother Jackson and Sister Gillian were orphaned at the age of 14. Through sheer hard work and stubbornness they managed to keep the family smallholding a going concern and have in fact prospered, an accomplishment they are understandably proud of. Brother Hiram wants to court Sister Gillian and has asked Brother Jackson for permission to do so, Brother Jackson has refused. In fact, Brother Jackson and Sister Gillian have been having an incestuous relationship for some time. They believe that the King has blessed this union, why else would they have fallen in love? The have adopted the doctrine that It's not Sin if you love each other, their continued coupling being tantamount to corrupt worship.

2) Brother Benjamin is an excellent school teacher, and he knows it. Brother Tobias, the father one of his students disagrees, and has let his son Ezekiel know this. Ezekiel in turn has been badmouthing Brother Benjamin to his friends, lessening Benjamin's authority in the classroom. Some of the children have begun to misbehave in class, a turn of events that is beginning to spread outside of the school environment. Sister Prudence, on of Ezekiel's classmates (the 12 yr old I mentioned above) is taken on the belief that obviously Rules don't apply to Children.

You'll note at this point, there is no mention of demonic attacks. This is because depending on which one of 5 possible routes I go from here, the attacks may differ.

1) Grabby enough, not every town needs a sorcerer after all.

2) Make Sister Gillian a sorcerer. In this scenario, Brother Jackson has taken a wife and the 3 of them are in a menage a trois, the wife joining them in their corrupt worship.

3) Make Sister Prudence a sorcerer. Prudence has gathered some like minded friends to her, starting a cult amongst the children propogated on the belief that they can do anything. One possible idea here is to have a slightly older girl in the group who attempts to seduce one or more of the dogs, probably with demonic support

4) No sorcerer, but keep the groups of 3. The wife hasn't joined the corrupt worship, Prudence's compatriots haven't fully joined her in her beliefs, but this will keep the Dog's chasing shadows until they figure things out.

5) Two sorcerers, Basically, combining 2 & 3.

Thoughts?

to me, this is way more powerful than all the rest combined

(I'm stealing this, by the way)

I'd say throw in some demons, have some people get hurt, and you're all set for drama extravaganza!
