So Like I said in the last post, this will be about the plot hooks I have developed so far. I’ll try and give a brief description of each one and then maybe in future posts eleborate on the entire plot.
The Main Plot
So why exactly are the party members together, who is the main antagonist in this story. Why none other than Snow White. I have done my best to use diferent names. I found a nice anagram creator for making names for the fairy tale names. The story begins with the Death of Snow White’s father. Everyone from the Kingdom and naughboring Kingdoms have come to mourn the loss of the King. The group of adventures were told that part of their backstory was they were to be traveling to a small village outside of the palace. Starryhallow. They where to meet in the tavern there. A group of dwarves (seven of them) pleaded with anyone in the tavern to assist with rescuing a wrongfully imprissoned princess (Snow White) from her evil step mother. In this story Snow White is an evil sorcerer and the Queen was only trying to protect the land. Snow Whites minions (the seven dwarves) try to recruit the PC’s into rescuing the princess.
They offer sugestions to the party like. The funeral would be the prime time to strike the queens dungeon as it will be least guarded. While the party has come up with other ideas, like how can they sneak or disguise or even get sent to the prison Snow White is held in to attempt to break her out. While I have had to think of ways to play out any path the decide to take the main focus is for either the party or someone else to break out the princess. If the decide it is to dangerous. She will eventually break free. Then the terror will rain down upon the entire kingdom. Or atleast thats the plan.
Sub Plots: (These sub plots can be played in anyorder really I just have to adjust the NPC’s based on what level the party is. I have given them plenty of things to investigate, since they showed up to the town a month prior to the funeral.)
This one was based on Red riding hood. But with the same theme, I want who the party would expect to be the good guy be the bad guy and yes I know I can’t do this with every story or they would meta game and know who the villian would be. So this one starts with rumors around the town that the old lady and her grand daughter have been complaining about wolfs around their cottage in the woods.
By the time the party gets to the cottage Grandma has already been eaten by “the wolf” and this is similar to the version seen in “Once Upon a Time” where the red riding hood is a wolf. In this case she is a werewolf. Either while in the home or just outside of it, the party is ambushed by wolfs. The party can either track the wolfs to a cave were Red Riding Hood is hiding out after murdering her grandmother. Or she will eventually get paranoid and try and get rid of any witnesses.
I have another one based on Cinderella, She is a insane (literally) druid who attacks with her birds. Her Stepmother and Stepsisters attempt to lock her up but the party could hear rumors and attempt to investigate this. Causing Cinderalla to unleash her wrath on her family and then possibly the town.
The next one and final one I have writen right now is based on Hansel and Gretel. This time Hansel and Gretel are not the bad guys, well not intentionally. The witch in the candy house has performed some dark ritual on the childern turning them in the little imps maybe? I had the original idea of them being Goblins, but we will see.
I started roughly on a pied pipep story where, he is a wererat and he lores children into the woods to be devoured by his rats and himself. It was just a though. I still have a long way to go.
Any feed back would be awesome. I really want this to work out and become an epic tale.
