The milestones don't get easier to comprehend. Like, what do we even do as we march onwards into this post-1500 world?

Well... Any tabletop stories about the post-boss-battle denouement being more dramatic or involved than the battle itself?

You just beat the Staglord in Pathfinder Kingmaker.

I get the sense that you just beat the Staglord in Pathfinder Kingmaker.

Uh... something something Staglord?

Anyway, TS doesn't sound very sure of herself there in the middle.

For what it's worth, most the hard part is done already and they just need to take the original wedding plans and edit them to account for the real bride being present now.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like you just beat the Staglord in Pathfinder Kingmaker.

In my games, the post-battle is always more dramatic and involved than the battle itself. I like to think it's because I have a really good group of players that will spend multiple sessions finding homes for every orphan, jobs for every refugee, and take turns giving each other an ear for their emotional baggage.

Last time there was a big explosion and the BBEG lost my players went out and started a coup... You know, I probably should have expected that since they all had "chaotic" alignments.

Maybe now go beat the Staglord in Pathfinder Kingmaker?

I recall this one campaign I ran for about 3 years, leading up to an epic battle against the awakened force of gravity itself. In the final session of the campaign, after that was done, one of the party's mages - having rescued the world - finally had the courage to stand up to his mother, who had been trying to dictate his destiny. This was a post-"final"-boss boss battle, so it only arguably qualifies.

We once did a game where the party were teachers at a superhero school. Think Xavier's School, but everyone KNOWS it's the super school. The bad guys were basically a secret cabal of people trying to siphon all the cosmic energy from the world. (Cosmic energy being the source of all super powers, be the mutation, magic, or other.) Eventually, after defeating the bad guys, we find the energy they stole, which is basically a font of raw power on a scale not really comprehensible by mortals. Each of us got to harness the energy for just long enough to effect one change on basically any scale we want. THAT was dramatic.

I don't know what Staglord or Pathfinder Kingmaker is, but congrats on beating it, I guess?

I at least know what Pathfinder Kingmaker. It’s a video game of a tabletop game which is itself branched off of 3.5e D&D. No clue about Staglord, though, I’ve not played the game...

"do as we march onwards into this post-1500 world"

Finish the transition from the Middle Ages into the Renaissance?

Aw, rather charming bit with Twilight and Celestia.

The climactic battles were against ancient god-killing beings who threatened all of existence. Upon barely defeating the last of them we find an egg in the midst of hatching. Do we destroy it and wipe out the threat for good, or allow these innocents to exist as they themselves hadn't done wrong? Best post-boss-battle denouement I have been in.
