  1. Very neat ideas. I compiled a list of items one may find on a dead body (when looting). I felt cheap just telling the gold piece value and they only happen to have other things in there pockets when it benefits story. So I actually went through my purse and made a long list of options.

  2. 16-A) You discover a wanted poster in the woods with a member of your party on it! You then discover in the town is a Doppleganger who is imitating one of your party members and you have to clear his/her name while avoiding the authorities, and bounty hunters to find the imposter!

    {Optional Surprise Twist} You discover in the end, that the Player Character has been in prison the whole time! And that the player character with the party IS the Doppleganger! Great for playing on paranoia fear! (Anyone who has seen the 1982 movie ‘The Thing’ will understand the kind of tension you need to make this scenario work.)
