Action/Dialogue


Walking on broken glass, I look at the plastic tents.
Where's the health center ? Why is this guy waving at me ?

Slowly, orienteering.

Is that a prey ? Or a person ?

Could be either. Roll 1d6...
1 = yummy prey
2 = even yummier but somewhat nasty prey
3 = edible but non-preferred prey
4 = a person
5 = a dead person
6 = a person eating your prey

It's a dead person, though you swore you saw movement beneath its crumpled overcoat. There is also movement behind the plastic sheeting of a nearby tent. Or maybe it's just the blood in your eyes. What do you do?



My, the young lady is stiff to the finger. Too bad I can't hear the pulse of her soul. It must have left the epiphysis less than one hour ago.
Her hair is cut so short it's rasping. So, what's in her tent ? I wonder, and kneel in the junk to contemplate her last hours.

Littered with every type of clothing and scraps of food, the tent appears to have been ransacked. A smoldering cigar lies in the trampled waste. Whoever tore this place apart didn't leave very long ago - and they may still be nearby.



I up the chin, sniffing for Watcha call it in the close area.

This is your oeuvre. Roll Psyche and add Watcha call it.

The whatcha call it is super strong here. You learn the location of one nearby evil thinker (just two tents away and considering murder), and one more thing.

You get 2 XP.

I am rolling now to determine what that thing is...

...an Arcane Residue, hanging upon the wind. The tents and ground are thick with it. This place is cursed, or has recently seen tremendous dark magical activity. What's worse: you sense the residue upon your own body as well.



Sh*t, been jinxed. I lay there on my back, eyes wide open, jaw tenser than I'd wish, thinking of what happened in Reno, trying to filter the slashslash of plastic in the wind.
"What do you want from me ? What am I supposed to do ?"
I get up and on my way for a vicinity investigation.
