Crowdsourcing: I need a threat to the a town in winter
Haven’t had time to prep for my upcoming game. Help me come up with a good threat to my PCs town?
It’s the middle of winter. We’ve established that the winter is going to be long and cold and rough. There’s a vast woods to the east, an open plain to the west. This is the PC’s home town.
Things we’ve got going:
– An ogre in the woods who’s been corrupted by something; it’s been finding old sites of power and spreading the corruption. PCs seriously wounded it a few months back.
– A group of ex-slave refugees, freed the nearest town. They were previously slave-taking hillfolk themselves. There’ve been difficulties getting them settled in.
– One of the PCs is an ex-slaver herself. There are bound to be folks with grudges.
– A handful of villagers have started down the path to worshipping something dark and bloody, but haven’t gone too far yet.
I’m suffering from analysis paralysis.
