GURPS Quick Adventure


Another GURPS NPC template.
Instant Encounter. A bad harvest has forced several freemen to leave their homes to look for supplies to pillage. These warriors are skilled, but not as disciplined as professional soldiers of the empire, still they are formidable and versatile.
PCs encounter faint clues of these would-be marauders passing.
It is a climate of panic, as a bad harvest, has landholders scrambling to buy supplies from better off neighbours. Tension is growing as abuses mount regarding the unfair trade of supplies. It has come to a tipping point when the first news of violence and pillaging has every community pointing the blame at each other.
The PCs are caught in the middle, and might be forced to confront the angry parties. If they investigate, they later learn about the barbarians, but what they don't realize until later is that a Landholding knight has used the pretense to hide his campaign against an old rival.
