Alright everyone, I'm calling on the collective powers that be here to help make this happen. I've just signed on to run a one shot demo of 7th Sea for my teen library program. In all, I'm expecting between 6 and 12 players (take that Sal!) for an event that will run roughly 2:30 hours. I have just under a month to plan this out, and I'm gonna need some help.
First things first, I need a plot. Already at work on this. My mysterious island adventure is too long for this. I need something short sweet and to the point. I already have something of an outline in my head:
– Start with an action sequence
– Include a dramatic sequence
– Finish with a fight v brutes and villain
(I think minimizing individual risks will be key to keeping things moving quickly.)
But most importantly, I'm gonna need characters! 14 of them. All the basic archetypes covered. I don't need much in the way of back stories, just a paragraph to tie them too the event. Maybe the best idea would be to do 7 or 8 and reskin these to double them.
When all is said and done, I'll be happy to package it all up for the community.
Who's up for this? Remember, it's for kids (teens anyway)! I'd appreciate any help I can get.
