Night of the Masks (SN)
A System Neutral Eventure by Bart Wynants
Every year, Duke Armas Nenonen hosts a fabulous masked ball to celebrate Ashlar’s Day of Founding. The duke’s guests number in the hundreds and include some of the most famous—and infamous—citizens of Languard and beyond. On occasion, invitations are extended to adventurers who have somehow managed to impress the duchy’s nobility. Song, dance and drink are the entertainment of the night. At the same time, secret alliances are forged or broken and sinister plots hatched in the castle’s candle-lit halls. When the masks come off at midnight, not all is revealed.
Not all quest rewards are measured in gold. Invite your PCs to the Night of the Masks and let them rub shoulders with Ashlar’s high and mighty. Deception, intrigue and opportunity await!.
This eventure is suitable for any level PCs and can be used with any size group. It has also been designed to be easily adapted to virtually any GM’s campaign.
Night of the Masks is set in the City of Languard but is easily adaptable to almost any fantasy city.
What’s an Eventure?
An eventure is akin to a normal adventure, but does not (normally) feature violence or physical challenges. Instead, an eventure focuses on the use of social skills and role-play to resolve the challenges, or events, therein. Most eventures take places in a settlement or on the road. Few occur in traditional adventure locales such as dungeons, ruined castles and so on.
Eventures are an excellent change of pace and can be used as filler between adventures or as situations in which PCs who have invested in social skills can shine. They are also perfect for players who enjoy role-playing.
