9 City Encounter Generator 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 A thief steals something from a market stall. A guard notices, runs up, and arrests a different youth who was standing near the stall and looks nothing like the thief. Was there a crime committed the PCs didn't notice, or is there something personal between the guard and the youth? A raccoon runs out the back of a shop holding a human hand in its mouth. The shopkeeper doesn't appear alarmed, though the other customers aren't quite so blase. While exploring a foreign city mostly populated by different race, a character catches sight of a group of his own race nearby talking. One of them waves at the character in a friendly manner. The character moves through the crowd to go meet them, but when he arrives, they have moved on. The PCs enter a town populated only by children. After investigation they learn the adults will be back soon; they always leave town at full moon because a demon eats the souls of the adults. In fact, that demon thing is a fake, but a thief takes advantage of the unguarded houses. The city has an ancient artifact - a large bell (perhaps in the highest tower of the palace, or the city hall or the grandest temple) that tolls on its own when a figure of major importance dies. One day it begins to ring, and the city falls into a panic - only to discover that all of the obvious candidates seem to be alive and well. Was it just a prank, has someone died and been secretly resurrected or replaced, or is there another explanation? City Square image: http://herbanicus.deviantart.com/ – Thanks Danny!
