Sup tg, what're some good adventure ideas for 2 players?
A horror game set in the modern day?

A really buff dude and a pretty girl solve puzzles between bouts of running then remaining perfectly still to shoot zombies.

>Make players brother/sister, sister/sister, brother/brother... whatever, make them siblings.
>Insert dead/sick parent/grandparent into their backstory
>Something something quest to save their parent or fufill their last dream
If you wana go a bit darker, make it about trying to survive or stay alive as a pair of orphans. Lots of potential for thiefy stuff or street gangs.

I think the best game I've run for 2 players was essentially a copy of the siege of dros drenloch (a fortress with six walls being held by 10,000 defenders against a force of millions - it's a great book) where the one of the players was the officer of a group of 10 farmer-soldiers and the other was his lieutenant.

"One is a knight-errant of the Red Order of the Righteously Clenched Fist. The other guy is an angry farmer with a western blunderbuss. Together they defend a peasant village"

"One is a drake that thinks he's a dwarf. The other is a kleptomanic lizardman with a loose staff. Together fight for money"

Okay, enough stupid movie headlines. My point is that two adventurers are extremely easy to structure an adventure around

Didn't the op ask for horror lol

I once played a game with another player where our characters were a brother-sister team using inheritance from their deceased grandparents to start up a merchant caravan and make our fortune. It sounds boring, but there was a bit of dungeon-delving and going dangerous places later one when we decided we needed rare and exotic wares to sell. She ended up becoming a caster of sorts and my own character because a gentleman swordfighter... occasionally we'd even hire other adventurer NPCs to help us.

Overall it was a pretty fun game. Sibling-pairs are so underused in games.

>> No.41277455

I think OP was asking if horror sounded like a good idea, hence the question mark at the end.

>> No.41277462

That first one sounds like a really bad-ass version of Seven Samurai. It's the era of gunpowder, knights have been made irrelevant by fire arms and increasingly wander the land as mercenaries. But ony a true knight would bother to protect THESE poor bastards, who can only offer FOOD as a reward.

>> No.41277472

Horror games are never a good idea. Traditional Games are not scary or horrifying at all.

>merchant dungeon delvers

So Reccetear?

>> No.41277499

Something like that. Do you ever go into the dungeons yourself in Reccetear, I was under the impression it was a purely menu-based micro-managing game.

>> No.41277510


Yeah take control of adventurers that run around finding items for you to sell

>> No.41277523

Oh no you absolutely go into dungeons in Reccetear. You CAN avoid going into dungeons, or you can delve ALL the dungeons. it's up to you.

A mutual friend is dead, six months ago they started acting strangely but neither person was in a position to really get to the bottom of things and then things seemed to go back to normal. Except now their friend is dead, and a mysterious package reveals that their friend was involved in some seriously weird shit, and now they and/or their famiy/friends are having experiences echoing and reflecting the bizarre experiences of their dead friend.
