Cold Killer

INTRODUCTION

Something monstrous is killing people. In this story, the nobler elements of the human spirit are extolled as someone gives much more than most people would give. The person may not start with the intent of personal sacrifice and may thus be an unintentional hero, thus emphasising the heroic nature of the choice and act.

The adventure begins with a visit from Detective Boone, either officially or unofficially.

SUBTHREADS

Dark Twist
Someone powerful wishes to recruit the protagonist for a job with a dark twist. In this thread, one person is at a disadvantage and might normally be expected to lose. This underdog can only win through greater tenacity and determination, or perhaps with the help of others.

Fight Club
The protagonist is forced into a fight. This thread involves lovers breaking some social rules, such as in an adulterous relationship or worse. The thread may thus turn around their inner conflicts and the effects of others discovering their tryst.

LOCATIONS

Park
Within an urban location, a park is generally designed for human recreation and relaxation. It might resemble natural savannas or open woodlands, or it could include playgrounds, swimming pools, skateparks, etc.

Underground
In an urban setting this usually refers to the sewers, but it could also represent catacombs, an underground facility, a bunker, or even just a basement.
