This one shot scenario was inspired by the critically acclaimed video game, Lone Survivor. In a bleak, post-apocalyptic city, a group of survivors huddle in a broken down apartment building, including a doctor, a thief, and a cop. Each is immune to the plague that killed or mutated everyone else in the city. Food is dwindling down and the roaming creatures are drawing closer. The few survivors still able to move around on their own have to work together to find supplies and a way out of the apartment building. But can they overcome the monsters roaming the halls and the terrifying secrets lurking in the building? What is the mystery behind the green, blue, and red pills? Is the apocalypse even real? Find out in this special one shot of Fear Itself!
Synopsis: The hospital has shown its dark side to the patients of Ward 2, but more horrors await them. The patients won’t go down without a fight though. As each patient tries to figure out the mystery behind the night nurses and other abominations that stalk the halls of Our Lady’s. As a winter storm further isolates the patients from the outside world, will they manage to survive the tender mercies of the bird-masked doctor? Find out in the chilling finale of Invasive Procedures!
I 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 The equipment is out of date, the staff are unmotivated and the whole place reeks of disinfectant, death and seventy years of despair.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.”
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?
