[HoE] Demo Adventure

#1 Postby ScooterinAB » Fri Jan 16, 2009 9:46 pm

I'm going to be running some demo games of Deadlands in order to help promote a convention that I'm working with.

Basically, I'm camping at a gaming store for a day and I'm going to demo two games (the other is Dark Heresy). I was hoping to have quick games that I can trade off with depending on the audience.

So I was wondering. Anyone have any ideas for quick HoE demos (probably around 2 hours)? Basically, adventures that cut right to the action and story, without spending 3 hours assembling the posse.

I'm running in a few weeks, so any help would be appreciated.

Greywolf's site has a few adventures. While I haven't run any of them they may work (save for one, War 'n Peace). From just skimming through them, I like them so far.

You could probably do the second act of the HOE adventure that is on the main site.

Scooter, I'm working on the exact same issue and have a ready made adventure called Moon's Last Stand. Basic premise the PCs are a posse hired by the Librarians to find a lost Librarian who was coming back from the Great Maze with a pre war relic. The posse tracks the Librarian's back trail to a motel in Toole, Utah that is eerily deserted and each room has a hole in the floor of the bathroom that leads to a tunnel in the ground. Drag marks lead to these holes. Its everyones fave HOE critter Wormlings. I like wormlings as a baddie because they are fairly easy to kill and have several weaknesses that a clever posse can exploit. Let me know if you'd like a copy of this and I'll email it to ya once I get it polished up.

I wouldn't mind a copy.

What I'd come up with was just speeding through the first part of an adventure. Basically, the posse is already together and within 10 minutes will have a clear idea what their goal is. A little bit of investigation, the obligatory fire fight, and some monologues later and the adventure is over... in theory.

I'd love to see what you have, and I can pass on any notes on my adventures at the end of the month if I get to run them.

Added the adventure for everyone's use in a new topic. I'd like to know what y'all think and what went down with your posses.
