Erro Scene #3 - Conflict Breakdown

[I should have published this scene before Sercet's, but it's the same difference.

Summary:

Seeing that it is no longer safe anywhere, Erro has escaped from his own household hoping to avoid his former servants. He has adopted the disguise of an Oracle, joining in the denouncing whenever he can’t avoid contact with people.
Cavanu intercepts Erro as he runs into a crowd. “Hello, father”. He spits it out like vinegar. Erro notices that he is now walking without crutches. He accuses Erro of bringing this doom upon the Kinta, for forsaking their role as shepherds; for twisting the Revelation to fulfill their own greed.
 
Cavanu talks about how the Kinta was never meant to control people’s lives, or rule them. The Kinta should have cared for the flock, selflessly. God’s rewards for the faithful, Kinta or not, would be in the next world. He accuses Erro, in front of the crowd, of once more displaying his greed and his lies by adopting the supposed new Revelation. He accuses Erro of being part of the power keeping the populace from achieving their dreams.
Erro tries to silence Cavanu, but Cavanu stabs him in front of the crowd. “This is for Mother.” As Cavanu speaks those words, he fatally stabs his own father. As the furious crowd moves into him, Cavanu vainly tries to explain again who Erro is, but in their frenzy they fail to listen to him. As far as they are concerned, an Oracle has been martyred.

Cavanu is beaten to death, and Erro’s body is lifted up as he is proclaimed a saint, nobody recognizing who he really was. If anyone recognized him, they never exposed the truth, as this martyrdom has cemented the people behind the new reality.]
Erro Scene #3 - Conflict Breakdown
[Antagonist has 6 credits left. I’ve decided we should settle Erro’s story goal here.]
Seeing that it is no longer safe anywhere, Erro has escaped from his own household hoping to avoid his former servants. He has adopted the disguise of an Oracle, joining in the denouncing whenever he can’t avoid contact with people.
Step 1: Choose Minutiae from the Shock

    1. Randomly choose 1d4 existing Minutae from the Shock associated with your Protagonist.
·         Serve God in this world, and expect amazing rewards in the next world.
·         The Kinta's role is that of rulers and shepherds.
·         Subjects often serve God by being recruited to fulfill and fulfill his Divine Design as defined by the leadership.
·         Is the current vision of God false? Is God in fact a Goddess? Is there no God? [Implied in narration but unanswered.]

Step 2: Choose Minutiae from the Issue(s)
    1. For the Issue associated with your character, ask Mythic: Will any Minutae from this Issue be used? Odds 70 .
    2. If "Yes", randomly choose 1d4 existing Minutae from the Issue associated with your Protagonist
  • A war against "unbelievers" is taking place. This war is being used to maintain power and provide resources to maintain lifestyle of Kinta. The Sun Fields was built to aid in this war. [Stated via narration. What's unanswered is who these unbelievers are?]

Step 3: Additional Minutiae
    1. Ask Mythic: Will any additional Minutae be used? 30%
Answer: 71-no
Step 4: "Destroy the Protagonist's Life"
Once you come up with an idea on how to do that, let Mythic add its own twist by using the Action/Subject table. Re-interpret idea based on the results.

Antagonist: Cavanu intercepts Erro as he runs into a crowd. “Hello, father”. He spits it out like vinegar. Erro notices that he is now walking without crutches. He accuses Erro of bringing this doom upon the Kinta, for forsaking their role as shepherds; for twisting the Revelation to fulfill their own greed.
[Mythic twist: 32, 56: Delay, Wishes]
He talks about how the Kinta was never meant to control people’s lives, or rule them. The Kinta should have cared for the flock, selflessly. God’s rewards for the faithful, Kinta or not, would be in the next world. He accuses Erro, in front of the crowd, of once more displaying his greed and his lies by adopting the supposed new Revelation.
He accuses Erro of being part of the power keeping the populace from achieving their dreams.
Protagonist stakes: Erro tries to silence Cavanu, but Cavanu stabs him in front of the crowd. “This is for Mother.”
Protag uses Lies, as Erro is paying for all his lies.
Truth vs Lies- 5 : must roll under 5

3d10: 3,1,10
1d4: 4
Antagonist stakes: Cavanu exposes Erro for what he is.
Antagonist uses Rebellion. It’s an act of rebellion.
Submission vs Rebellion 6: must roll under 6

[Will antagonist use 3d10? 50% answer 46-Yes]

3d10: 4,9,10
3d4: 1,2,2

[Will Audience participate? 50% - 22 yes. Will it help Protagonist intent? 50% 33-yes. Doesn’t matter, Protag already won intent.]

As Cavanu speaks those words, he fatally stabs his own father. As the furious crowd moves into him, Cavanu vainly tries to explain again who Erro is, but in their frenzy they fail to listen to him. As far as they are concerned, an Oracle has been martyred.
Cavanu is beaten to death, and Erro’s body is lifted up as he is proclaimed a saint, nobody recognizing who he really was. If anyone recognized him, they never exposed the truth, as this martyrdom has cemented the people behind the new reality.
