Fear Itself: Invasive Procedures episode 1

The doctor will see you now :DI picked up the scenario Invasive Procedures at Gencon this year and I ran it for some of the RPPR crew as a 3 part game. I’ve decided to post the games as a build up to Halloween. I think you’ll enjoy these episodes. From the scenario’s introduction:

The kids all say Our Lady’s Hospital is haunted. You can see why, when you look at it, that big gloomy pile of staring windows and rusting beds. They should have torn the place down years ago, instead of letting it linger on like this. I’d hate to be a patient there. They send you there to die.

You are a patient in an old, rambling hospital. Part of it is shut down, part of it lies in decay. The equipment is out of date, the staff are unmotivated and the whole place reeks of disinfectant, death and seventy years of despair. The hospital has ghosts and spirits walking the halls but they are the least of your worries. You should be afraid of what comes out at night. You should be afraid of what makes the ghosts flee.”

Fear Itself: Slender man

The Slender Man is a terrifying entity associated with the mysterious disappearances of many individuals.  In the gated community of Fiddler’s Green, four children have gone missing and the case has gone cold. A documentary film crew has just shown up to investigate. Will they find out what happened to the children or will they also disappear into the embrace of the Slender Man?

Fear Itself: Survival City

A group of unwary party goers finds themselves caught in a forgotten nuclear fallout bunker from the Cold War. Strange people have lived for decades in the bunker and even darker secrets lie wait to be uncovered. Inspired by the book Survival City, I ran this one shot last year using the Fear Itself system. Enjoy!
