Anytime quest: Peaceful Moments

(0/9 XP)

You are an ancient and terrible horror and that's hard. You try to be normal, to live a calm life. You've earned it. But… you can't not be who you are… and who you are tends to not be very nice. When you feel a peaceful moment of quiet reflection hold up a sign and show everyone the side that says At Peace. When you show it, look at the other side that says You'll ruin this, too.

Quest 1: Pancake Guru

0 out of 21 XP

When you came to Fortitude you lost something. You felt it tear away and take flight, something dark and ancient and terrible. Some memory or dream or wish took flight… and now it stalks the good people of Fortitude. A monster attacking people is definitely going to throw a pall over Pancake Week!

You can feel it out there in the night… and you're not sure what it is that you're going to do once your find it.
Major XP:

  • Someone accuses you of controlling the shadow or being the shadow.
  • You have a scary fight scene with the shadow and lose, run away, or can't finish it off.
  • You track it to its lair at "Madcaps' Nave," atop the Blakley House, where it nests with bits and pieces of your memories.

Flavor XP:

  • prowling the rooftops
  • making a new friend/acquaintance while out hunting the shadow
  • helping someone who's in trouble or
  • talking about your past in France, developing the memories that the shadow is nesting on

Result: You've resolved the situation, killing the shadow bat or reintegrating it or setting it free or… whatever. Fortitude is safe again! And, maybe, just maybe, you feel a bit better? You gain a Knight 1 Perk, and, if you feel it appropriate, you can also mark off your Dead Heart Affliction.
