This follows Steve Darlington’s excellent format for designing adventures: take an evocative song you like and use it as your inspiration. For the ones I’m posting here, I use Moody Blues’ songs; this one is I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band). The adventure was written for my Firefly campaign, but it works in any SF campaign, and truth be told, would work for any milieu where there are (a) popular entertainers and (b) the characters have a ship or caravan where passage may be obtained.

Entertaining, a rock singer with his own spacecraft.

Nicely done, I believe there is a submissions inspired by music codex.

I can see how this is more of a plot then an NPC. He seems to be more of an event then anything else. An annoying event, which makes it good.

I could see him being a contact a PC could start the game with, either owed or owing a favor.

It's not only Firefly-inspired, but also within Firefly spirit. Simple but alright in my book.

I liked this a lot and I'm going to use it. Aside from mundane folks they could also be dealing with upper crust characters with the disposable resources and status to make the PC's lives hell.

Really cool.

This would be a tough one to run, a GM trying to seduce his players can amusing and awkward. (Seduction with dice alone just doesn't cut the mustard does it?) One way to play it would have the PCs not actually interact with him in game time. Yeah they can see him perform, they can even sleep with him, but the action always takes place right after he has put his boots back on, or when another player finds the same dedicated song recorded in their bunk mates media library as Gabe just "wrote" for them.

Could easily be reflavored to fit any setting.

Solid side-quest character, that is for sure. What an awkward thing to get involved in. Only thought would be to get him off the ruddy ship or ghost him!

Idea from the Aeneid. Could make an intriguing encounter when searching for firewood..."Quite near there happened to be a mound of earth, at the highest part of which were growing thickets of cornel and a dense cluster of spiky myrtle-stems. I went up there and tried to wrench the green growth from the ground to provide a leafy covering for our altar. There I was confronted by a horrible and astounding miracle. For from the first bush which I tried to break off...blood oozed in dark drops, fouling the earth with its spots...A piteous moan came from the base of the mound and I heard a human voice answering me: 'Why, Aeneas, must you rend a poor sufferer? I am buried here...for I am Polydorus. Here death overpowered me in a crop of piercing iron-pointed spears. And so a crop resembling javelins has grown over me...'"
