Bonds Compendium
« on: February 28, 2012, 11:42:24 PM »
In the interests of writing new bonds as per the Beta XP rules and end of session move, I thought it best to give a collected list of all the bonds written for all the versions of the game so far.

The idea being to spark players and the GM to write new bonds using these concepts as inspiration. I'm aware that usually the bonds will be very specific to your particular game, but if you have any more that your group has written, please feel free add them to the list!

*I have a long-standing bargain with _______________.
*I sang stories of _______________ long before I ever met them in person.
*_______________ is often the butt of my jokes.
*I am writing a ballad on the adventures of _______________. *_______________ trusted me with a secret.
*_______________ does not trust me, and for good reason.
*_______________ has insulted my deity.
*_______________ is a good and faithful person; I trust them
*I worry about the ability of _______________ to survive.
*I am working on converting _______________ to my faith.
*_______________ owes me their life.
*I have sworn to protect _______________.
*I worry about the ability of _______________ to survive in the dungeon.
*_______________ is a weakling, but I will make them tough.
*I have worries about the soul of _______________. *_______________ has stood by me in battle and is one of my closest friends.
*I respect the beliefs of _______________ but hope they will someday see the true way.
* _______________ is a brave soul, I learn much from them.
*I have guided _______________ before and they owe me for it. *_______________ is a friend of nature, so I will be their friend
as well.
*_______________ has no respect for nature, so I have no respect
for them.
*_______________ does not understand life in the wild, so I
will teach them.
*I stole something from _______________ and they don’t know it.
*I stole something from _______________ and they found me out. *_______________ knows incriminating details about me.
*_______________ and I have a long con running.
*_______________ will play an important role in the events to
come. I have foreseen it!
* _______________ is keeping an important secret from me. *_______________ is woefully misinformed about the world; I
will teach him all that I can.
*_______________ refuses to let me explore the full depths of magic.
*_______________ has been the subject of my experiments before, and hates me for it.
*One day _______________ will stop laughing at me. One day...

When they are looking for funding, they should survey their backers for bonds and then list the backers in the book (or a seperate pamphlet) as filled in bonds, e.g. "I have a long standing bet with [backer]."  That way it is both a backer list, community involvement, and resource for choosing bonds.

That is a brilliant idea Marshall.
