The Village of Way's Rim put out the call for adventurers during the August Moon, and the threat has only gotten worse. It began two moons ago when all 4 of the serving wenches of the Blue Horse Tavern vanished without a trace in the same night. Since then, despite all efforts to the contrary, women continue to vanish while male adventurers are killed violently and mysteriously. As of now, 19 of the town's women and 9 female adventurers trying to help the situation have met the same fate - mysteriously vanishing during the night like a puff of smoke.
The only real clue to what is happening is what happens to the men. Male townfolk and adventurers trying to get to the bottom of the disappearances don't disappear, they just turn up dead. Usually killed quickly - sometimes as soon as the first night they are in the town. One of the latest disappearences however did manage to leave an unintended clue, something that points to the founders of the town itself and might be the first bit of progress anyone's made this whole mystery...
I ran this once before, and considered it a success overall. The first group of lady adventurers ended up falling before the threat but still I like to think we all had fun so I'm going to run it again, with the last attempt canon with a few tweeks to reflect what happened to them.
Basic Premise is that the Fantasy town of Way's Rim has had a rash of mysterious disappearances and deaths in the last two months. Between the town's people and previous adventurers looking into the issue 27 people have vanished without a trace and 8 more people have died violent deaths. All the people that have vanished have been women, both local town-people and female adventurers trying to get to the bottom of the mystery. Meanwhile all of the confirmed dead are men that were trying to get to the bottom of the mystery, mostly male adventurers.
The disappearance of a local businesswomen however might provide a clue needed to break the case - or at least set a group of female adventurers onto the same path of the 27 women who've disappeared before them.
Looking for a female adventurer or a small group of female adventurers. Going by context clues you can probably imagine horny monsters seeking to rape the female adventurer(s) and a cave will probably be involved at some point. Male characters can be proposed of course, but they'd probably die rather quickly.
Please don't look for the previous thread but feel free to ask questions. Spoilers. Pathfinder will be the system we use, thinking level 3 with a 20 point buy to make characters.
