Sercet Scene #3 - Conflict Breakdown

[ This one should have come directly after Kaluvan's scene.

Summary:

Given the unrest that has begun, Sercet has taken Rhea back to the Sacred City in order to keep both of them safe until the turmoil has subsided.
Some Oracles seem to have gone mad; proclaiming a new Revelation from the true Goddess of time forgotten, while condemning the Kinta. Given the sacredness of the Oracles, the unrest has magnified, while the Kinta violence has just begot more violence. The mob has overflowed into the Sacred City.

A number of servants has shown up to where Sercet and Rhea are taking shelter. They come for
Sercet, but Rhea speaks what Sercet recognizes as the Infidel language to the servants.
A very heated exchange occurs, but they eventually leave him alone. Rhea seems conflicted inside, and finally tells him: “It’s over, Sercet. The old must be abandoned.”
Rhea is able to convince Sercet to move on, and join the flow. Sercet does so, though he still has the same feelings inside, so has doubts about this new reality. In private, he attempts to connect with his God once more via the Bhesh drug—to test once and for all his faith. In the process, he overdoses, but does find his God. Sercet goes into a peaceful eternal sleep on his God’s bossom. ]

Step 4: "Destroy the Protagonist's Life"
Antagonist:  Some Oracles seem to have gone mad; proclaiming a new Revelation from the true Goddess of time forgotten, while condemning the Kinta. Given the sacredness of the Oracles, the unrest has magnified, while the Kinta violence has just begot more violence. The mob has overflowed into the Sacred City.

 Mythic twist: [8,5][Oppose,Inside]
A very heated exchange occurs, but they eventually leave him alone. Rhea seems conflicted inside, and finally tells him: “It’s over, Sercet. The old must be abandoned.”

Step 5: After the Protagonist has had a chance to react:


[This time, we are just going to settle the Story Goal as the Antagonist does not have enough credits for more than one conflict.]
Protagonist Stakes: Sercet refuses to rebel against God and join what he considers a blasphemy and a lie. This causes Rhea to abandon him in disgust.
Will use Truth, as he believes it in his heart of hearts.
Truth vs Lies – 6 : Roll over 6

3d10: 10,7,4
Antagonist Stakes: Sercet goes on a Besh trip one last time, seeking reassurance from his God. He does not find God, however. There is nothing.
Mythic twist: [74,56]: Divide,Wishes: Sercet will die conflicted.
[Will Mythic use 2d10? 50% - 83 – no. Will it use 3d10? 50% 45 –Yes]
Will use Lies, as God is a lie to the Antagonist.
Truth vs Lies – 5: Must roll under 5

3d10: 8,8,5
1d4: 4

[Will Audience participate? 50% - 48-Yes. Will it use it to help Sercet’s intent? 50% - No. Will it use it to help Antagonist intent? 62-no. It will use it against Sercet’s intent.]
1d4: 3
Sercet fails his itent [10-4-3 = 3 < 6 ]
Antagonist roll falls exactly on fulcrum.
Sercet has overdosed.
Opposition is Protagonist, and gets to tell what happens, if Antag fails intent: If Antag fails, Sercet finds his God, and feels like he goes into an eternal sleep in his God’s bossom.
3:d10: 10,7,7 – antagonist fails [7 > 5]
Interpretation: Rhea is able to convince Sercet to move on, and join the flow. Sercet does so, though he still has the same feelings inside, so has doubts about this new reality. In private, he attempts to connect with his God once more via the Bhesh drug—to test once and for all his faith. In the process, he overdoses, but does find his God. Sercet goes into a peaceful eternal sleep on his God’s bossom.
