Can you think of any reasons why the King of Hell would pit mortals against each other while giving them a ghost or demon sidekick? The mortals are also given the partial powers of a reaper (in my universe, those powers include collecting souls, summoning hell hounds, sensing when someone nearby will soon die)... I have a good chuck planned except for a darn reason WHY...
Sounds like you’ve got quite a bit of it planned, good for you! I think there’s a couple of potential reasons why:
- ancient blood feud. somebody pissed off the King of Hell awhile ago and the time of reckoning has come
- just for fun. King of Hell is bored and wants to stir up trouble
- has to stop a quest to destroy him
- is running low on souls and needs more to regain power
- the mortals owe him a favor and he’s calling it in
Sorry if none of those make sense with your story but I hope that I helped a little bit ~Nicole
