Campaign Chunk – Event – The Grand Derby


Started 90 years ago the Grand Derby (so-called not because of its size or prestige but after it’s founder – Josephine Grand) has now lived up to its name and become one of THE social events of the year. Held at the racetrack at Grands estate, the track goes through woodland and hills and across a small stream. The track itself is able to be portioned off making it length variable from 1/2 a mile to almost 2, the maximum only being used for the Grand Derby itself. Various hedges,jumps and other obstacles are placed along its length and the track varies from soft to hard and loose to compact as it winds its way through the estate and passes very close to a local tavern – “The Horse and Jockey”, where many locals gather to drink and make wagers on the various races that take part.

Adventure Outline/Event – Impact!

A falling object impacts the ground leaving a large crater and massive damage


5 nights ago astronomers spotted a meteor heading their way. The meteor was given the name Damocles. It was calculated that the object should not even graze the atmosphere and not cause anything more than a nice show in the sky at night. Sadly though, the calculations made where wrong.

Terribly wrong.

1 night ago, the meteor collided with the planet. It was believed to contain a high amount of magnesium due to the disturbingly bright light that came from it as it burnt up in the atmosphere, more so than other objects entering the atmosphere. Many people thought it was the end times as the night was lit up like a new angry sun had dawned.

The impact shockwave...
