Running Roots

Postby Silver Priest » Thu Oct 19, 2017 5:55 am

I'm thinking of running Roots from the collection The Things We Leave Behind. It's an interesting modern day scenario that should make for a fun one-shot. The basic plot is one of the pc's teenage daughter goes missing, and they set out to find her. PC's could be the girl's parents, neighbors or other relatives, or even the girl's friends.

I'd like 3-4 players, so if you're interested let me know. :)

Happy to have everyone. It will be a 6th edition game. I don't have later, but if anyone thinks they're a rule in it I really need to incorporate, let me know.

Before you all make your characters I'll need to post some information in the forum once that's set up, but I'll go ahead and add the description for the game now.

"It's the summer of 2017 in small town Virginia. The tranquility the residents take for granted is shaken by disturbing news: Karen Parker is missing. To some she may be a friend or neighbor. To others, a daughter. But regardless of the relation, the investigators set out to bring her home. But ancient evils lurk everywhere, and as the investigators are about to discover, some are very close to home..."

That's great. As Lee doesn't happen to be running convergence soon. I'll use Elderly Tobias for this role.

Sure, that's fine. :) Just keep in mind that at the start of this you're all friends or family of Karen, and she's the hook to begun the adventure. You could have encountered something unexplained in the past, but just know this will at least initially seem like a mundae runaway or perhaps a kidnapping, and care for Karen or her family should be what sets you on the case. Of course, as the story progresses your investigator may very well recognize the signs of something usual and react appropriately.

Can Tobias be Karen's grandfather?

Since we now have three players, I took the liberty of creating a forum for the game here.
