The Omen

By:

An ominous emblem begins appearing in tapestries, paintings, engravings, streets, etc. across the town or city in which the players are staying.

More and more manifest every day. Only a few people seem to notice them as they are either small and in hard to spot places, or are so vast that one would be required to stand further back or higher up to see them. Meanwhile, there has been an alarming increase in tragic accidents from the lowest to the highest citizens and it appears that none are safe. Reports have also came to light of increased demonic/supernatural activity. The rulers/officials are becoming increasingly worried. After hearing the PC’s aren’t far away, they hire them to solve the mystery.


Can be worked into supernatural/occult adventures as a starter or continuation.

A fun concept, with plenty of directions the Gm can run with it, making it harder for players to easily guess who (or what) is behind the symbols, or even if they are the cause of the incidents and aren't some preventative wards keeping things from escalating to wide spread death.

Tripping over the Golden Bough

       By: Wulfhere

Nearly every primitive culture has had rituals and celebrations to guarantee the proper passage of the seasons and to ensure the fertility of crops and animals. Oversight of these ceremonies was generally the provenance of local kings or priests.

Suppose that the adventurers dispatch one of these fellows. The local peasants may become hysterical, fearing famine and death will stalk the land. Alternatively, they may want one of the new heroes to become king. For a while, this can be a good thing, but the first time that the crops fail, the superstitious locals will want to sacrifice their new leader.
