Meridan

By:

A powerful wizard comes to a town to uncover treasure he believes is hiddes there. You must protect it.

Meridan is a fairly wealthy but descreet town hidden in a field beond a mountain pass. Very much like it’s own city-state, it is not at war, nor troubled within itself. Crime is low, but existant, and the royal family there Governs well.

To this town comes a powerful wizard. He aims to subtly but swiftly irradicate the entire town. Fairly secluded, the wizard would have time to steal a hoard of treasure he believes to be hidden under the town (though you don’t know this). A master of illusions, this wizard can hypnotise, take over, and manipulate all sorts of people within the story.

Some of you were hired by the royal family to protect the town.
Others want to protect thier heritage, and others want to make some gold. Perhaps you are an assiassin from another region, or have a private agenda with the wizard.

For whatever reason, you all meet, and your party are now required to track down this devious wizard and put him to peace, before the town is lost.

——————-

First, design your characters, why they’re there, and what thier busness is. Then, play out your roles as you meet, and fro there move forward.

Later in the plot:
  Maby the widard has several underling you need to fight, or a legion perhaps. Maby skeletons and golems, and other creatures he himelf creates. Characters may be manipulated or be the victims of illision, making the party’s trust shaky.

Can we get some examples on how he is going to do this? Just some bones to hang this plot on.

Also, I know the GM is responsible for getting a group together and motivated, but don't you have any real motivation advice beyond... you meet and your party is now require.....

It's not easy to articulate in a mere plot how exciting something was when you delivered it. Nonetheless as stands this is well below average. But the City itself did sound interesting - maybe you could expand on it in the Settings thread.

Remember not every plot has to be city/world shaking. When you can understand the drama of 'small' events you'll be better able to tackle larger themes.

So - "Evil wizard plaguing peaceful city for nefarious ends"

Bit of a cliche but actually not a bad one - can become the basis of an interesting scenario, or even campaign arc, if handled properly

Unfortunately we don't have enough to even start here - this is more of a plot idea than a scenario

Needs a LOT more detail

I give it 2/5 because the idea has potential - it just hasn't been fulfilled here

you people don't have imaginations?

Yes, we do. But look at it this way:
If you told a painter to paint you a dog, and said painter gave you a white canvas with a few black lines painted on it that vaguely resembled some kind of scene, and then said, "use your imagination", he wouldn't exactly be doing a very good job of painting you a picture, would he?

I'm sorry, no. I love Dadaism, but this is flat out a bad submission.

Beware of towns afflicted with Time Cancer.
For every second you progress through time, an infected town goes back 48 hours. Old buildings slowly become new, then incomplete, and finally just a frame and foundation, giant old trees turn to saplings, birds hatch into eggs.
one must not linger in a chrono-cancerous village for too long, before you know it you'll be a fetus. Tme cancer in unstoppable, no cure or treatment is knwn, it eats through the past until the inhabitants of a village turn into primordial protein ooze
