“Generate an artpunk OSR scenario”
The players are members of an underground art collective known as the Velvet Revolution. They’ve just landed a commission from the wealthy and eccentric art patron, Baroness de Vries, to create a masterpiece that will shock the city to its core. The catch? The Baroness has given them just three days to complete the work, and the clock is ticking.
As the players set out to create their magnum opus, they soon find themselves embroiled in a web of intrigue and danger. They must navigate the city’s dangerous streets, avoiding the roving gangs of cyberpunks and mutant freaks that roam the city, while also fending off the machinations of rival art collectives who will stop at nothing to steal the commission out from under them.
But as they work on their masterpiece, the players begin to uncover a sinister plot that threatens the very fabric of reality itself. A shadowy figure known only as the Archon is using the power of art to reshape the city in his image, and he will stop at nothing to achieve his twisted vision.
To stop the Archon and save the city, the players must delve deep into the neon-lit heart of Neonburg, facing off against his army of twisted creations and navigating a maze of mind-bending art installations. Along the way, they’ll encounter a cast of strange and colorful characters, from avant-garde poets to rogue AI systems, and they’ll need all of their wits and creativity to survive.
In the end, the players must create a work of art that is not only visually stunning but also powerful enough to counteract the Archon’s influence and restore balance to the city. Will they be able to rise to the challenge and create a masterpiece that will save Neonburg, or will they fall victim to the city’s dark underbelly? The fate of the city is in their hands.
I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign, and would be very grateful for your support.
