A scenario seed for The King in Yellow Roleplaying Game
As heroes of the revolution that deposed the Castaigne regime you’ve been invited to take center stage at the first 4th of July celebration in 97 years. In 1920, backed by the King in Yellow, the Imperial Castaigne dynasty took over the US.
Six months ago, in the climactic moments of the great uprising, you helped take it back.
Today is no longer Empire Day; once more it is the good old Fourth of July.
Every fireworks display, every bandshell concert worthy of the name wants a squad boasting a rep like yours to stride up on stage under the red white and blue bunting. All you have to do is say a few words and accept the clamorous applause of the crowd.
Since the struggle ended, you’ve been trying to settle back into your civilian life.
When you arrived on site, you noticed that security wasn’t set up the way you would have done it. As a former insurgent, you can see four different ways regime holdovers might strike at the platform. If any of them are planning to do that. Which they’re probably not, you tell yourself.
Suddenly you sense movement from the corner of your eye. A shadowy, inchoate shape skulks between two garbage bins.
Looks like the fight’s not over, and the party’s only getting started.
Aftermath is the third of the four interwoven settings that make up The Yellow King Roleplaying Game.
