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.
Feel free to use it if you'd like. If I can come up with anything for it I'll post it in the forums.
Instant idea starter. You have encapsulated everything you need or wanted in such a short space. Good job.
Thanks for giving me great feedback, I really appreciate it guys :)
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.
Update: Sub re-upload. Was lost to the void.
3.5 if I had any votes left,decent enough hook to wrap even a whole campaign around
One of the best 100's I've seen. Great job!
