  • Introductory story

    I've got a bunch of young players dying to play. As they start their fun with C:tD (and RPGs at all). I need a simple introductory story. I am almost sure that there was an adventure with pregenerated motley (if I remember correctly Boggan, Eshu, and Redcap among each other) which would be perfect for those players. But I don't remember where I saw it, I can't find it and I don't have time to create something personally. Maybe somebody know what I'm talking about and could help me?

    The C20 jumpstart is a good story with a motley of premade characters. The Book of Storyteller’s Secrets and the Book of Lost Dreams both have premade adventures that I’ve run to great success. They don’t have premade characters though. I think the old 2E Changeling quckstart has an adventure. I want to say it was Toys Will Be Toys. It ties into the San Francisco setting detailed in the 1E core book and the Immortal Eyes books.

      I assume it was The Book of Storyteller’s Secrets. It's about saving a young lad from a Psy-ward mantained & controlled by autumn people.
      It has at least 3 pre-generated characters (Radcap, Eshu & a Sluagh).

      But I strongly reccomend you to build your own Chronicle. The introduction could be about the Chrystalis. If you have one more experienced player, she could have the one who introduce the fledlings to the Chimerical World.
      If give her a hidden agenda & a secret and let the dices fall.

        I believe it was 2e quickstart, but I can't find it anywhere .

        As for building my own campaign I will do that. But it is my habit to run an adventure created by authors for new players, especially young new players (apart from the lack of time for that). That way we can learn our style and the players can learn the systems. I tested that long time ago during a WFRP 1e campaign. I was some kind of voluntary social worker and I tried to keep the kids away from the street with elves, dwarves and Chaos. The "Oldenhaller Contract" was perfect to show them the world, systems and as the beginning of a larger scheme created by me. And if I remember well the adventure I'm talking about could be used the same way. That's why I'm looking for it. And pregenerated characters are usually created as friends (so that should stop the characters from killing each other) and are ballanced to finish the story relatively easy. The one exception was Rite of Passage, which usually ended with characters dead or as Black Spiral Dancers (proven "scientifically").

          OK, problem solved. And you were right PookaKnight. It was "Toys will be toys" 2ed quickstart version. I found the quickstart thanks to you and webarchive. Of course I also thank you Lachdanan, for ST Secrets lead. I will compare these two stories and choose one which will be better for the beginning.
