I need a more standard scenero. I have a tendency of getting exotic or unusual situations for the PCs to overcome. I need a more classic scene for the group to send them through. A bit of background:
I have 6 players (might be 5), A Paladin, 2 Clerics, a Wizard, a Bard, and a Fighter that may drop. The group has had some adventures together and I plan on running a sort of flashback encounter where I want them to try out different things and really get a feel for the system and a feel for the way things should go. The group are good roleplayers but more used to games like Savage Worlds, D&D, Star Wars d6 and other classic but tactical based games. One player really wants a sort of inititiave system so that he doesn’t dominate the game and so that each person gets an equal time in the spotlight. With so many people it is easy to miss people and occasionally skip people due to trying to follow the action. Also, I have one or two players that are a bit shy. Combine this with nearly all the players have been taught to be polite and not jump in when they really want to, but to give other people the spot light. So I have developed a spot light system. But that is beside the point. I need a scene, a situation, where players can try out anything, anything can happen, and a set up to encourage them to try anything, with out reguard to playing to their strong suits and playing toward their stat advantages.
I was thinking maybe a bandit attack that could lead to hunting down some bandits. But I want it short enough to have in one session of a few hours.
