Ignis Fatuus

An erroneous perception of reality

See: [Ignis Fatuus at wikipedia]


The characters are all ghost, alien, paranormal, or fake hunters. You are part of a small club in Littlehamton, Bainshire, a place that is almost like here and now. Most of the members have a fanish interest in the unexplained but there are those, like yourselves, that know better.

All the character know each other and have been on many an adventure, most of which have been fakes or duds, and the rest have been inconclusive or no evidence left to prove what happened.


Create a simple character with the ChopChop system (four build points only).

When Chris has left the party see a ghostly woman on the bridge. When they get there, there is a weird circle made from burnt rubber like some bike did a donut where the figure was.
The party conclude that Anita must have been murdered and is haunting the bridge.
The party try to find out what happened to Anita, it seems no one knows, but Chris says she ran away like his wife did Gina. Anita left with all her stuff but left John's car.
The party go back to the bridge with a better swimmer to investigate the river bed but find nothing but a large rock that John attempted to drown himself by clinging to.
The party decide that Chris must be a wrong 'un and the he probably has offed Gina and Anita so attempt to find proof. By asking around they find out that Gina is still alive and living with her new fella on the other side of Littlehamton.
