/tg/, how can I justify the pope secretly being a violent rogue, and joining the party to steal valuable art out of mosques in a modern day setting?

Also, cool ideas for NPC's thread I guess
>>
>>44858641
Don't justify it. Just do it.
>>
>>44858641
There is nothing worth of robbin in mosques. Only tiles. Are you a tile-lover freak?
>>
>>44858641

God wills it
>>
>>44858664
I already did it, but my players really want an explanation for why it's happening. The campaign has been pretty normal until now.
>>44858695
That's exactly what they're stealing. The soul of the demon Mohammometh is located in five specific tiles in the five biggest mosques in the world. The players seek to acquire his soul.
>>
>>44858793
Tithe is not what it used to be. Saint Peter manteinment won't be paid by divine will. You gotta take the shank for some "enforced charity"
>>
>>44858641
"That's fer Constantinople!"
>>
>>44858641

He was always a rogue. Its just that, for a con in his younger days, he pretended to be a priest to sneak into a place and things got increasingly out of hand.
>>
>>44858641
Just any random art from a mosque is a bit of a stretch, but rule of cool and some extra justification (relics, a specific slight, etc.) should see you through.

As for the rogue bit, the criminal who found god and reformed is an age-old character, and some of the countries with the highest catholic populations in the world are pretty damn violent and/or known for their criminals - Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Poland, Columbia, so it wouldn't exactly be hard to find someone with a roguish background who found religion - if they rose in the church in a troubled area they might well maintain their connections up to cardinalhood, and even use them to become prominent.
All while doing the Lord's work, of course
>>
>>44858889
Oooh I like this idea a lot. As for the art, see >>44858793
>>
>>44858641
He is Argentine.
>>
>>44858985
This means he isn't white, so you've now got all the justification you need.
>>
This would be much easier with Ratzinger who was essentially emperor palpatine, but nu Pope is Argentine super liberal (for a Pope)
>>
>>44858841
enforced charsity?
>>
>>44858883
This is the best option.

It was all a con job. A con job that he conned so hard he became a priest then a bishop then a cardinal and then the pope, and by then he felt bad about letting people down.
>>
>>44858904
Yeah, posted while I was writing/checking wikipedia for catholic populations.

Ironically the Vatican City, by raw numbers, has the 7th lowest catholic population on earth, due to only having 842 people living there (it is, naturally, 100% catholic)
>>
>>44858641

Sounds pretty reddit desu
>>
>>44858641
He actually isn't the pope. He's a satanist who's set out to dismantle the vatican by impersonating the pope while doing increasongly repulsive acts. The real pope is in a warehouse somewhere being tortured by satanists.
>>
>>44858883
>>44859070
this. it started out as a long con and just kept escalating.
>>

>how can I justify the pope being a rogue
You don't have to, he's the pope, it's his job.

I would 100% play your campaign
>>
>>44858641
He's a fundamentalist who's trying to take the church back to its medieval roots, I guess?

I mean, monks went around robbing churches all the fucking time back then and most popes were willing to suit up and lay the smack down as well.
>>
>>44858641
You can justify the Pope going around Muslim countries as part of some "Holy Co-operation Initiative" or some similar bullshit. He could set up meetings with the Imams of the mosques your party are hitting to create openings.

Also, if your GM is a cool dude, there will be at least one car chase involving the Popemobile .
>>
>>44858641
Why does that need to be justified?
Make it so he has a ridiculous amount of action points/rerolls, to indicate divine favor.
>>
>>44858793
>The soul of the demon Mohammometh

No need to make stuff up, since the name of the demon "Baphomet" is basically a mispronounciation of Mahomet/Muhammad.
>>
>>44859982
Interesting, didn't know this. Already got the name though, so no more changing it now.

Just go more insane, increasingly further off the rails until Popethief seems normal in comparison.

look up Pope Borgia, adjust for modern day

Assuming someone satisfied your Rogue Pope Question.Evil Dwarf Mage who can Cast a Spell that can change a person's alignment. 1-2 is Lawful good, 3-4 is Neutral good, so on and so forth until 19-20 which makes you roll again. You either extract info out of him later or go to the other side of the continent for the cure. Your memories and what other people think of you stay the same until you act otherwise. Your Impulses are different though and feel more devoted to other things.

Ratzinger is a cyborg, but he's kinda halfway a failure as he quit before he could become a demon for good.

The current pope is a fucking Jesuit. Those people sided with Oda Nobunaga. You don't need further explanation.
>>
>>44858641
originally the skills of a rough childhood came in handy when working his way up the ladder of the church. now he's effectively reached the top, it turns out the church runs itself and the job is boring. this is his extended vacation.

No. Oda Nobunaga befriended with catholics, specially jesuits just to piss buddhists,who had rebeled several times against him.
>>
>>44865631
Only thing I know about Jesuits is that when my mom was in the military, some Jesuit in Honduras who was friends with the reds passed information to a Cuban hit team to kill my mom who was doing MP/Heart+Minds work down there. Apparently her CO found out so they transferred her out to avoid more issue.

he could have leveled in Rogue before going into priesthood or always was one and was stealing/backstabing his way into the position
