#TTRPG – Soliciting Assistance to keep Wightchester on Track

As you may or may not have gathered, I had a bit of a health scare.

They say a change is as good as a rest, but given that this was a hypertensive attack, rather than a mental health break, I’m not sure that holds true.

Anyway, I’m on a couple of weeks of bed rest and waiting on more tests at the hospital, which means I’m behind on my crowdfunding project, Wightchester, despite having made contingency plans for such an eventuality.

I had previously put out a call for assistance, but wasn’t exactly compis mentis due to meds and distress, and I thought it best to be specific about what I need help with in a place that people can see, rather than contacting people back individually.

My good friend T-Shirted Historian whom I do RPG discussion streams with has stepped up to help me with some rules appendices and some location descriptions.

  • Mostly what I need is someone to help with statting up some of the foes and NPCs.
  • A familiarity with 5e is essential, Mork Borg and the OSR (Lamentations of the flame princess) a bonus.
  • If anyone else wanted to help with location descriptions, that would also be a bonus. I include an example of such below.

Mail me grim@post-mort.com if you can help me out. I will compensate if I can, but it’s not going to be a lot of money as it hasn’t been budgeted for. Free product is another possibility.

House 7 (Open)

The door to this house lays on its back, inside the ground floor room. The wood is somewhat splintered, and the frame is split. The door was broken clean of its hinges, leaving a gaping maw in the front.

Parlour/Kitchen

The room is in total disarray. Looking down at the floor you see hundreds of footprints, layered one atop the other. Every piece of furniture in the room has been shattered to splinters and pushed against the outer walls, which are covered in filthy handprints. Even the stove, the only recognisible piece of furniture left, is dented – as though buffeted by some great force.

Encounters:

  • [ ] – The stairs have been weakened by whatever force smashed up the room. Roll 1d6 for each person ascending or descending the stairs. On a roll of 1 they collapse, dropping the poor sap six feet to the ground, scraped against broken wood for +1d4 damage. A Dexterity Save, DC 15 prevents the damage, by allowing them to grab hold of the stairs.

Bedroom

Like the floor below the bedroom is smashed to flinders and absolutely covered in footprints with thousands of black and brown handprints all over the walls. There is one difference though, a bloody patch in the middle of the room, scattered with broken fragments of bone and teeth, odd patches of hair and skin. A bloodied hatchet lays next to it, its haft broken.
