I plan on running a campaign around songs inspired by a band I listened to during the 80s and one album in particular, Shriekback's Oil and Gold. The songs Nemesis and Fish Below the Ice conjure up some nice dark ideas to run some people through.
Well, let's brainstorm some ideas based solely on the song titles.
- A shy, new kid to the school (a Weirdo) swiftly becomes a target of the bully group. They torment the boy who spends his days drawing pictures of a grotesque robot he names 'Nemesis'. Things start to take an ominous turn when the youngest bully swears that he saw the glowing, red eyes of the Nemesis. Is the clock ticking before the bullies meet a horrible fate? Is the shy child all he appears to be? And how do the PC's react to the situation?
Fish Below The Ice
- A school outing to visit the local fishermen seems like a great way to spend an afternoon of listening to old men yammer on about their jobs and to goof off with your school buddies on a boat. However, the fishing boat is deserted. There is no sign of struggle and the pot of coffee is still brewing. What could have happened so suddenly that it made a crew of fishermen disappear in an instant? And how does it relate to the sightings of strange fish in the region?
