On the House


After a successful adventure and money in the pocket they decide to splurge and live it up. They site down and order a nice meal and it far surpasses their expectations- until halfway through it the other guests start falling over choking and vomiting.

After a successful adventure and money in the pocket they decide to splurge and live it up. The Silver’s Nest comes highly recommended and it quite often frequented by the higher nobility of the city. They could have similarly been invited there by one of the nobility to discuss some employment opportunity. Either way they site down and order a nice meal and it far surpasses their expectations until halfway through their meal other guests start falling over choking and vomiting.

Priests are called but for many it is already too late.

Assassination attempt. Can anybody be that sloppy or heartless? Perhaps it is somebody trying to get a guilds attention? An ignorant kitchen hand bribed by a ruthless noble looking to get rid of some rivals. Were the players themselves the targets? There a conflict brewing between nations? Preemptive strike by the other nations? Poisoning may have happened all over the city.

Accident? Ignorant kitchen hand picking the incorrect herbs. New fish that was added to the dish that was prepared correctly during the test phase and when tried on customers it wasn’t prepared correctly.

Very new,but it needs some closure, at least I think so, but I do see how it would be good to leave itas is if you like that kindof thing. Good job 3/5.

4/5 because it would be a good RPG to play and could be any of the things that you describe.

A good idea but needs fleshing out.

Obviously the PCs are supposed to sort the mess out, and they have a good motive for doing so they may also have just been poisoned (probably).

3/5 for potential could be much higher if fully developed.

I am not going to vote on this just yet in the hopes that it will be visited again and be expanded. This has touched a similar instance in my game and I want as the Horde said, closure. I want to see a few possible outcomes and ways to transform this from wrong place at the wrong time, to a successful adventure. And right now with barely three paragraphs that isnt possible.

This strikes me as a good prologue, but some help on what to do next might be in the offing.  A lot is left as an exercise for the student :)

Small village tavern specialty of the house is fresh cow blood mixed with milk. For each order they go out back and actually draw blood from a cow by puncturing a vein in it's neck. Fresh blood brought to the table where they poor milk into the glass of blood in front of the customer so they know how much blood they are getting.
