This is an illustration I did for “The Handy Dandy Random Adventure Generator For Beyond the Supernatural” written by Chai Gallahun and published in Rifter 63 by Palladiumbooks.
It is a dark, horror supernatural RPG gameline and the article was written with with a nice set of easy to follow construction guidelines to develop some nice adventure campaigns. The Handy Dandy Random Adventure Generator for Beyond the Supernatural is an aid for creating the essential elements to a good, horrific story. Sometimes GMs need a creative push to help them come up with an interesting plot for an adventure or campaign, or maybe they might need to generate a random NPC or location in a pinch. Sometimes players might want an interesting background for their player character, such as a family background or current storyline.
I chose to take elements from the charts to implement into the illustration and it worked out very well to capture that BTS atmosphere I was looking for.
I began to see after randomly picking through the BTS Adventure Generator tables, was a story about "Victoria the Sleep Walker." Unconsciously unaware that she emits a psionic siren like alluring aura, that makes her nearly irresistable to others, Victoria, is cursed with a patterned dream trance where she sleepwalks through the cornfields and meadows, fixated on a pair of white moths who represent her and her future lover. As long as she remains fixated on the moths she remains in the dream state, and the things that go bump in the night will not bring harm to her. However…, should anyone else follow her in the moonlight dance or attempt to wake her from her dream causing her to lose sight of the moths, then the crows and the wicked, Ripper-dolls that rise from the shadows will tear them to pieces. Removing Victoria from the town will not deter the crows and Ripper dolls as they are shadow shifters. Those that fall under her aura's trance are doomed to try and rescue her and thus becoming butchered victims whose remains are stuffed into the Scarecrows or actually becoming Ripperdolls themselves, living a life of nightmarish torment every time Victoria Dreams. Soon the curse will be passed onto her lover continuing the cycle.
How will poor Victoria be rescued? How many ex-lovers have fallen victim to the fields and become dolls themselves?
