I'm going to run DitV for an upcoming con in a couple weeks. Been trying to get a town fleshed out. I think I'm mostly with what I have at this point, but I'd like some opinions. Anything to help grab the PC's more or fill in any holes I've missed:
The Red Creek BranchDogs
: 4 Players to be named1A PRIDE
: Brother Thaddeus is dead. Sister Patience (related to PC1) doesn’t want to remarry. Instead she wants to remain single and have Stewardship over her family. 1B INJUSTICE
: Brother Elijah (related to PC2) would be the perfect candidate to marry and take care of Patience and her children. His oldest children have moved out and his house and farm could use the extra hands. 2A SIN
: Patience has been lying to the town about her husband's absence. She claims he had to leave town, but the other townsfolk are starting to wonder.2B DEMONIC ATTACKS
: Brother Elijah’s livestock and crops are starting to do poorly -- crops drying up, stillbirths, cows not producing milk, chickens not producing eggs, etc.3A FALSE DOCTRINE
: Meanwhile, Brother Josiah’s farm (related to PC3) is thriving. Brother Elijah believes Josiah to be consorting with demons, ruining his farm and benefiting Josiah’s.3B CORRUPT WORSHIP
: Brother Elijah begins burning Brother Josiah in effigy, believing it will ward off the demons.6A THE PEOPLE
Sister Patience wants to be left alone and allowed to run her household in Thaddeus’ absence.
Brother Elijah wants the Dogs to help his farm, especially by stopping Josiah from any further demonic worship.
Brother Josiah wants the dogs to straighten Elijah out and get him to stop making threats at his farm.6B THE DEMONS
The demons want Elijah to go further in his attempts against Josiah.
They want Patience to lie as much as necessary to keep from being found out.
They want the Dogs to belief Elijah -- they’ll do whatever they can to implicate Josiah in demonic activity.6C IF THE DOGS NEVER CAME
Josiah and Elijah’s feud would eventually come to a bloody head, resulting in the death of one or both of them.
I sort of purposely only made relations for 3 PCs. The slot is for 4 people, but with cons you never know. I wasn't sure if it'd be better to plan on 4 and maybe have something in the town not draw them in as quick or leave a PC without a relationship in the town and push to get them involved anyway (maybe as a neutral party).
I'm certainly open to suggestions of where to fit in a 4th NPC/relationship.
