Setting: Age of Snakes (loosely)
Age group: 6-7th graders
Quick story: We are loosely using the Age of Snakes setting and following the map from WORLDS they have just entered Nemedia to cut through a pass in the mountains on their way towards the East Colossus (the Colossus’ sword is the last “pillar” keeping Sett from obtaining his true form and take over the world). Upon arrival, and with no research on the lands or it’s people beforehand, they encounter a small scouting party from the Bear Clan who have allied with the Snakemen to gain control of all of Nemedia. The kids fall for the honey sweet words of the Bear Clan and tell them that they think they have learned the location of the last pillar and are gathering there to look into it and defend it if need be. ALL of this information, especially the true location of the last pillar, had been kept secret by the other two groups of kids that have chosen the safe route to the East Colossus through Duradin’s Mountain pass and are unaware of what this other team is up to.
So, now the plans have fallen into enemy hands, Bast and the Snake Queen are slithering their way East acting upon the new information, the team that gave the information out are still under the assumption that they just told some nice locals their plan to save the world and the other two groups (and kingdom) will most likely be caught unaware and with little to no time to prepare for the snakemen when they arrive. The team that gave up the goods have also been given Bear Clan necklaces to mark them as allies of the Bear Clan, which will most likely have some consequences if they bump into the Wolf or Elk Clans too.
I need help finding some natural consequences, possible encounters and so on caused from the fall out of their costly mistake of bragging to the wrong people.
Thanks in advance.
