The Endless Night

Facilitator:

I sometimes wonder what sunlight was like. My grandfather told me stories his mother had told him - how you could stand on a tall building and see the city stretching away from you and bustling with life. How you could stand in a field - a field! - and close your eyes and bask in its warmth. How every day it painted the entire sky, reds and blues and purples. But that was then, and this is now.

Now the only light we have is the light we make, burning oil for each moment a fizzing bulb or burning lamp is shining. And every hour of every day they burn, because outside the light they might be lurking. The wraiths came when the sun went out - though maybe they were always waiting. Their bodies are smoke, and their eyes are flames that cast no light, but their claws? Those are most certainly real. Even now I can hear their whispers and songs outside, but in a way I'm grateful - it's a welcome distraction from the splutters of our dying generator.

Something must change. We must make a change. I'm going to head out into the darkness tomorrow, friends at my side, and find a way to bring the sun back.

This is a Powered by the Apocalypse scenario for Legacy: Life Among the Ruins. The players will create and drive the story and action by playing not only their PCs, but also narrating the actions of the families and organisations which those PCs are an integral part of. The scenario uses partially completed playbooks for both levels of play, to allow for more time to play through the scenario.
