Greetings, fellow community members! This week's question will get somewhat darker than our previous ones, and I do enjoy questions that involve certain scenarios and knowing what your characters would do in them. I hope you enjoy these questions, too! Continuing with our horror theme for the month, this week we'll be dealing with a common occurrence in the genre: possession. Let's say that our characters encounter the Black Spirit and for reasons still unknown to us, it decides to take possession of our character's body and go after someone deeply important to them. Perhaps the Black Spirit is simply trying to play a nasty trick on our characters, or perhaps this action somehow further the spirit's own mysterious plans.
Who does the spirit decide to attack/get rid of? What is their connection to your character? Does your character snap out of the possession or does the Black Spirit accomplish its task?
The victim can be either an NPC or a player-character that has grown to be important to your character. Let us know what would happen in the comments!
