The Forgotten Brand


Why do they choose to re-appear now? Perhaps it is just a crazed local? What will happen to the child?

The shack of a fisherman and his family lies deserted a few miles away from the nearest town. Close to the sea and his source of income. Should the players happen along, they will hear faint, distressed, wailing, that of a child coming from the well behind the shack, coming from deep in the well. Pulling the rope up will bring up a small baby, inside the well's bucket with a symbol scratched into its forehead. Anyone with knowledge of religious/ancient history will recognize the mark as belonging to a tribe of seafaring zealots that haven't been see in centuries.

I instantly want to know more about these seafaring zealots, and why they have been gone for so long, but haven't been completely forgotten.

Congratulations, you have made an excellent 100 word submission

This leaves me wanting to know more, which is a good thing! How did the babe get there? Where is the fisherman and his family? Whose baby is it?

A fun 100 word sub, but it would be awesome if you expanded it one day.

It's a good hook. But right away I wonder, how exactly was the symbol "scratched" into the baby? O.o Sounds painful. But maybe that was intentional. If so, poor baby. Really want to bash some cultist heads now hmm.

Was the baby intended as some sort of weird sacrifice to the water table, or was it put there for its own protection? I wonder. Very nice hook, Cassy!

Thanks Dossta. Another interesting idea from you. I guess that could be left up to the GM to decide and further the adventure however he'd like.

The Maze

       By: sirgarberto

As far as everyone knows, the Maze has always been there; the strange pair of gates set in the side of a mountain a common feature in every painting of the area, no matter how ancient. One white, one red, nobody knows what they're made of but they resist any attempt to damage them; they’re always slightly cool to the touch no matter the weather, they have a very reflective surface, and if you look at them in a bright light, sometimes it looks as if they glow on their own.

The important thing is what’s on the other side of them, of course. The Maze itself is a strange place where the normal rules are suspended, and its own set takes their place. It’s a place filled with puzzles and riddles, monsters and traps; it’s always consistent with itself in any single run but is never the same two times around, and sometimes you could swear it has a sadistic streak, delighting in tricking the unwary adventurer.

It is a dangerous place, as so many people will rush to tell you; most people who go in never come out, and even those who do usually end up scarred for life. They also bring out with them enormous piles of riches, which is why people keep going in anyway.
