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.

On route from Geli to Nekrass the characters meet a peasant boy on the road. He's wandering in the direction from which they've just come. If this seems a little bit incongruous, they may wish to ask him a few questions. He's perfectly willing to talk: he's called Lamish and he's run away because he knows he is the heir to the throne of Geli and his parents didn't believe him. How far is his home? About five weeks walk from here. How much has he eaten? Nothing. Has he drunk? Only from the filthy roadside ditches. In short, it's a wonder he is still alive. And yet he seems perfectly healthy.

Is he a thief, waiting for travellers to trick? Is he lying because there's something more sinister under all of this? Is he telling the truth? And anyway, what should the characters do? Do you take him to Geli? Do you try to find his parents? Or leave him to make his own way?
