(Presumably there will be some additional bonuses for show of force from sheer size and firey display, the disturbing/penetrating voice should help too.)
One would assume... I wish the guidelines including some sort of cap.

"Hear this, Gemeti. Be Warned! Your treachery does not go unnoticed and should it continue, it will not go unpunished. The Council has decreed that you will not bear your punishment alone, but you will incur a curse that it will be borne by your kin along with you, oh child of Macedonia!"

Faceman! for Intimidation

3d6 <= 13
2 + 5 + 4 = 11 ... success
Will roll... a 7!



Gemeti sticks her head out of the second story window (this is a reasonably well built up area, but outside the walls: "Am I so insignificant that they send a mere monster to threaten me?"

I don't see why, I find all the reasons to nope out to be cumulative...
Demonstrations of Strength and Supernatural powers demonstrated, check, +1 to 4 (each?)
I mentioned a menacing appearance, might as well max that at monstrous for +4
SM +3 is another +3

Before the bonuses the roll had a margin of 2... so the final margin is +11 at a minimum without the disturbing voice or any reputation being a dragon might cary culturally or a bonus for my artistic flourish (which I'd give me, is wasn't bad, lol ). You had them roll, so I presume they are not indomitable... What did you choose as a final modifier?

Apparently so...

Vassarious chuckles and blows some more flames.

Does Halcyone want any input? Job's done, so the rest is icing on the cake.

I'm not sure what to add... If this won't scare her, a different approach is necessary.

The message is delivered and I think they were impressed enough. I'm not going to flatten the house... But a little flourish can't hurt.


"Shall I have a snack and tell the council you preferred to be devoured now and save them the trouble of casting curses, then? I can't say why, but a mortal's impertinence somehow sweetens the meat."

"Your message has been delivered. There is no need to eat me, and no need for you to trigger any vengeful curses. I hear their message."
