8 City Encounter Generator 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Characters pass a café with tables out front. Outside, various groups dine, relax or talk business over a mix of beverages. Upstairs is rented and used by the mafia (think the legitimate businessman's club from 'The Simpsons'). A vigilante is brutally murdering suspected crime figures. A merchant wants to thank him and tries to hire the heroes to capture him and bring him to dinner. This is obviously a setup...or is it? Your favourite cafe gets invaded by gang members. They want you to scram so they can enjoy their new hangout in peace. Will you drive them out of the area or join their gang to keep going to the cafe? A trusted NPC tries to get the PCs to buy a horse from his brother instead of the dubious-quality horse the PCs intend to purchase. It does not seem clear that the new horse is any better than the other horse. An assassination attempt is made on a prominent official, but it is clumsy and the official survives, only to accuse a member of some group he wishes to see brought down (thieves' guild, political radicals, a particular noble family) of the crime. Was the attack faked to discredit the official's opponents, or was it a genuine attempt? City Square image: http://herbanicus.deviantart.com/ – Thanks Danny!
