  • So I've given some thoughts to the location and, building on the idea that the town is built around some piece of Infrastructure that could destroy it, I thought of Centralia (Pennsylvania) and the fire raging underground. For those unaware, the fire raged for years and life on the surface was mostly unchanged (besides the occasional plume of toxic gas, cracking pavements, sinkholes and subsidence). Britain has a coal mining history and many former mining towns (mostly in the Midlands, North and Wales), many of which have suffered decline since coal mining stopped after the Thatcher government....

  • I quite like this... as it can easily be combined with suborned Infrastructure ( once operated/protected/attended/etc by human cultists). This town was built around some Infrastructure. Perhaps this fell into disuse at some point and the demon moved to reactivate it (or just took it over), creating/subverting a cult and using the Infrastructure as an Aether supply.

    Now the Machine wants to reactivate it, or has just noticed something hacked Its dormant Infrastructure and wants to move back in....

    I could even have the Machine's ultimate aim actively destructive for the...

  • My first cult idea - the core of the cult are people helped, personally, by the demon. Through Pacts and other abilities, it took away their illnesses, their debts, their problems... They're indebted to it but also grateful. There's a genuine loyalty to the demon. This feeds nicely into the 'you're working for the real villain' reveal, though I do want to make the Tempter a bit more morally ambiguous....

  • Actors - Besides the demon (and its Covers), nope. I think I'm more looking for hooks and factions over individuals, as I can conjure them pretty easily. I need locals who are actively part of the conspiracy (cults, individuals etc) but I want most residents to be either entirely unaware or the CofD 'unaware' (people who they know but recognise, possibly subconsciously, that the supernatural is best ignored.avoided and refuse to face up to it).

    Location could be isolated/rural, by the sea, an island (likely Scottish,as the game would be set in the UK)....

    A small town with a dark secret...

    I’m thinking of running a game in which a group of (human) PCs come to a town with a dark secret to investigate, Twin Peaks/Gravity Falls/X-Files style. Over time they’ll come to know the place, and a cast of NPCs, and pick away at the central mystery. I plan to provide them with a corkboard to let them embrace their inner conspiracy theorists.

    It’s incredibly unlikely they’ll be looking here, but just in case… if you’re in the Central Birmingham (UK) RPG club, please stop reading.

    So what’s happening?

    The town is run by a demon Tempter ruling...
