I used to run these Halloween one-shot adventures every year, and it is way past time to bring them back.
This year, I’m bringing back a classic that I’ve run before: Chickens in the Mist
This will be run using Savage Worlds on Fantasy Grounds. Pre-gen characters will be provided.
No experience needed. Savage Worlds is a “rules-light” system and is easy to pick up.
You are a group of college students investigating a lead that corrupt local oﬃcials and otherwise upstanding members of society are involved in a secret cockfighting operation. Rumors are that they use their power and prestige to deﬂect local law enforcement from delving too deeply into the illicit operations. A tip directs you to the O’Connor farm.
Animal Rights Activist
This character has heard rumors of a cock fighting event out in the woods near the university and has encouraged others to help put an end to this horrible travesty.
A big guy with a big heart. This character doesn’t want to to go, but since they are the only one with a car they talked him into it. They are mostly worried that the others need someone along to keep them from getting into trouble.
This character works for the university newspaper and thinks that breaking the story of a cock fighting ring would be a great way to jump start their career after graduation, especially if prominent community members are really involved.
This character loves adventure and will do anything for a rush.
This character is really into occult stuff and considers themselves a “good witch.” The funny thing is… some of these spells actually work! They are so obsessed with being in tune with the magical realm that they often lose track of the ordinary world. They have had feelings that something is wrong at the O’Connor farm.
