The Premise

The player characters are all grandparents, or at least old enough to fill the stereotypical archetypes of grandparents. Their mission is dire. They need to carpool from the assisted living community (where at least some of them reside) to the east side of town, where their favorite lunch buffet will be opening.

It’s already 9:00 AM, and the buffet starts at 11:00. There’s no time to waste!

The Intention

This adventure is meant for 2-4 players who are new to the Cypher System by Monte Cook Games. To that end it’s highly recommended that you purchase the Cypher System Rulebook, but everything you need to know about the rules is available in their SRD.

Other Systems

As luck would have it, most of of this document is plot, setting, and descriptions of bad things to throw at the players. Other than the included pre-gen characters and a few minor details, this adventure could easily be used for any other system. You’ll need stats for a flock of Canadian geese and some local ne'er-do-wells, but any large predatory bird or, in a pinch, a giant rat from whatever system you choose could be “reskinned” to be North America’s most terrifying feathered fiends.

The Setting

The characters reside in New Canaanton, a small but unfortunately growing community (“Things were better back in the old days! Far less traffic! There used to be a barber shop next door, now it’s a highway and I’m bald! Additional rants that none of the youths will hear as they’ve already walked away!”) in eastern Pennsylvania. This adventure could take place in any small town by revising a few of the landmarks. If you yourself are familiar with such a place, feel free to substitute that location for the one shared here.
