Title: Schoolyard Bedlam

Created by: Dav Flamerock

Tragedy Set: First Steps


Description: An anonymous tip has summoned the Police to the school, where it seems nothing is amiss. Yet because of his intimidating and inexplicable presence investigating the school, tensions are rising and a full-on panic is in danger of breaking out. All this has been arranged by the pop idol and her associate, members of a cult that need only the Shrine Maiden to be eliminated before they can unleash their true supernatural horror. And while the anonymous tip was arranged on purpose, it wasn't entirely false: a vengeful girl has decided to take matters into her own hands and begin a killing spree. With so many forces lose in the school, it'll take a miracle for things not to fall apart completely...

Main Plot: A Place to Protect

Subplot 1: Shadow of the Ripper

Subplot 2:

Number of Loops: 3

Days per Loop: 4

Hints for Mastermind:
The incidents are designed to give you plenty of options. If you plan to win via a Power Play strategy, you can move the Girl Student to the Shrine on day one and immediately kill the Shrine Maiden, revealing two roles but immediately ending the loop (this could be a good way to cover up the culprits of the later incidents). If you plan to coverup, you can use the Police Officer's presence to increase paranoia and you can prevent the players from using the Pop Idol's ability because she's the cultist. This should help ensure that the incidents happen the way you want them to: get intrigue on the School and win at the end of the loop. Once the School has two intrigue, don't let the Informant murder the Shrine Maiden if you can avoid it, unless you can get some intrigue on another location to obfuscate that victory condition (since if they see two intrigue on the school and none anywhere else, even if you win via murder they'll correctly assume you're on A Place To Protect)
