D100 Dungeon Boss True Love

Dungeon Boss Hierarchy of Needs
It's a lonely life being a dungeon boss, but it doesn't have to be. Your dungeon boss or faction chief has plenty of things to worry about. When the most basic needs of life forfilled looking for mating opportunities becomes important.

Food source - regular reliable and storage of food source
Water source - regular clean water supply and storage
Lair - safe secure stronghold, hidden, fortified and guarded

Territory - control a safe zone around lair
Outposts - secondary sites with permanent garrison
Romance - opportunities to find mates

Waste - remove waste and effluent safely from community
Hygiene - personnel personal grooming and food preparation
Breeding - breeding and raising children and colonising territory

But bosses get served first and get to do everything even if they restrict their minions. The boss getting a lover can seriously change their priorities and goals of a faction. Monsters might complain the boss is overly satisfied and not fighting for territory since they built the new master bedroom.The gang doesn't count concubines and abusing prisoners. It's only when a specific lover influences the boss over a period of time they cant. After several editions of torrid popular dungeon love novels in the last few years lots of foolish rich romantics have surrender themselves to dungeons. The more recent novels have taken a more realistic tone. "Life among the wild kobolds" was a big seller.

If party are captured and imprisoned they might be able to use the bosses lover to escape. Pretending to have same interest or helping their desire could earn a better position and more freedom in the dungeon.
