the meta plot of my new game

so the basic overview of my meta plot is that the yuan ti is attempting to gather power within the region and summon some sort of devil/demon that is their god (turns out that they have one Dendar, the Night Serpent, Merrshaulk, Master of the Pit, and Sseth, the Sibilant Death, are listed within the monster manual as their gods)

so i figure that i will start off with all the dumb random crap on the interwebs about the lizard people secretly ruling the world and then just d&d it up. so here is what i have:

due to the uprising of the weird devil/demon cults over the last few years this allowed the yuan ti to get into a position of power in a few different places with either backdoor pay offs or assassinations or even just getting shape changing people to take the original persons place. they have done this in strategic locations so that they can have a finger in every pie that they think they will need, so anyone from the random beggar on the street to the leader of the magicians guild to princesses of the realm, they could potentially be yuan ti.

they have decided that the devil/demon war that happened a few years was good for them and by placing false information about people trying to resummon them or new ones they can actually use this as a cover for what they actually want to do, which is summon their god/gods.

i have a few other random ideas that i am trying to bring together and i have also sort of injected random story elements from various adventure paths that i have at home, the hooks that are currently out there are:
forgive us
the jewler who delt in stardust
edgewaters folly
tales from the yawning portal
maze of the blue medusa

so as you can see i have a bunch of potential areas i can take the story, i just hope that it all works out well

New Home Game

So I started a new home game a couple of weeks ago and I will probably actually use it as a thing to keep my terrible blog updated or something along those lines, lets face it though i probably wont.

the new game is a d&d 5e game and the players are starting at level 10 as some sort of heroes of the realm. here are some of my notes that i have written down about the new game after talking with my players:

they stopped a big evil, the big evil was:
the king was possessed by some sort of devil, they rescued the king keeping him alive and banishing the devil in the process.

the possessed king was found out by the people of the realm to be evil when he went a step to far on his attempt to deal with other villains, the murderers, thieves and other criminals began to disappear. so the underworld people of the realm looked into it and found that they were running some sort of concentration style camps under the palace. then the possessed king got a bit crazy and started imprisoning more then just criminals, he went after stuff like priests and dark elves.

at the beginning the other rulers of the realm didnt really mind this as they were happy to be rid of their criminals.

a new deity rose up throughout the land and all the other churches and places of worship began to be broken, defiled, and destroyed, the priests and worshipers killed or hunted down. the survivors went underground or traveled away from the kingdom in an attempt to both stay alive and protect their deities teachings.

the underhanded folk of the kingdom all got together in an attempt to stop this, its the first time they all came together and formed a collective. this was for the greater good, because how could they profit from the people of the city and ply their trade if there was a war between mankind and devils? everyone of the underhanded folks "guild" had their leader be part of a democracy where they all meet, they called themselves "the council"

this evil went on for about 3-5 years
it took about 6-12 months to fix it
it has now been about 2-3 years since it all occurred
