Should- should I tell my players that the prophecy they received is couched in metaphor and not meant literally? Or do I let them try to stick their hands in a snake’s mouth to try and fulfill what they think the prophecy is?


Has there ever been a literal prophecy? I say let them stick their hands in the snake

@ackthrice weirdly they’re beginning to suspect that the serpent might be a metaphor, but the bite is still literal.

Have a guy with serpent tattoos, or better yet snakebite piercings try and bite them and see what happens!

@ackthrice they’re currently working with a former member of the cult that’s trying to kill them, and she was wearing a bracelet shaped like an ouroboros when they first met her.
