As Blossoms Fall

A pre-feudal Japanese oneshot about five people torn between the terrible weight of duty and the bonds of feeling between them: forced to choose what they will save, what they will give up, and what they will destroy.

This adventure was designed by Luke Jordan originally created for live play in a convention setting. The module features a custom resolution mechanic, with heavy emphasis on character-driven roleplay. The Actual Play was ran by RPPR’s “Most Innovative” GM, Bridget, at GenCon 2018, featuring veteran RPPR cast members and a few newcomers. Atmospheric and moody, this is RPPR at its best.

If you would like to run this scenario yourself, you can obtain it from Luke’s itch.io page for a reasonable price. If you want to see more high quality content from our “Most Innovative” GM, Bridget’s patreon can be found here.

Zweihander: A Rough Night at the Three Feathers

It’s been a long day’s travel, and the sun is just beginning to go down as you see an inn in the distance. As you draw closer, you see the sign of three feathers hanging outside, and notice that the place is unusually busy.

Inside, the inn is bustling. servants are hurrying to and fro, and the innkeeper is engrossed in conversation with a scribe who carries a visibly bulging purse. “Welcome,” he says at last, “I’m sorry to have kept you waiting for so long, but as you can see, we have a distinguished guest tonight—the Gravin Maria-Ulrike von Liebewitz of Ambosstein, no less…I hardly know whether I’m coming or going with it all. Now, then—you want a room? What am I saying, of course you do. Ah, excuse me again, I’ll only be a moment.” You wait for another few minutes as he directs a train of servants to the Gravin’s rooms. “So sorry,” he says as he returns to you, “It really is mad this evening.”

This scenario was run by Noah of the Maple Syrup, Blood Money podcast.
