GM's Map 56: Funeral Parlor
Map making can be time-consuming and sometimes frustrating for GMs¸ especially GMs with limited time to begin with. In our new 'GM's Maps' range¸ we will be providing a range of pre-made maps for you to use in your games.
Death comes to us all¸ it is said¸ and when it does many of us will pass through the hands of the undertakers at the Funeral Parlor.
Also known as Funeral Homes¸ these businesses provide mortuary services¸ undertakers and make arrangements for funerals.
Who would have thought such a mundane¸ and frankly grim¸ the location could be the site of all kinds of action¸ excitement and adventure?
This product includes a blueprint style map¸ a key of the single-story establishment and it's surprisingly extensive basement and a series of adventure hooks and ideas.
8/. What Do You Mean it's Inside the Dead Guy?
The PCs have to break into the funeral home and recover a valuable piece of a cybernetic technology. The item is a prototype¸ and it is installed in someone who is dead and in the morgue at the funeral parlour. How exactly it came to be installed in someone who wound up in a standard funeral parlour is something the manufacturers don't want to talk about¸ but they need their tec. back and they want it done on the QT.
11/. Trapped in the Funeral Directors
PCs find themselves trapped in the Funeral Directors. Unable to escape¸ some inexplicable invisible shield is keeping them in. Ghostly apparitions abound and the PCs are gradually losing Willpower/Sanity (Or your preferred system's closest analogue). When a characters Willpower or Sanity is sufficiently low¸ they reach the realisation that they are dead¸ they are the ghosts and they vanish. The 'Ghosts' that they see are actually the living (perceived from the perception of a ghost).
(Concept by A Farbridge)
12/. To Go Not Whole to the Grave
After exhuming several bodies relating to another case¸ the authorities have discovered that several of them are missing parts. An undercover investigation is launched and eventually¸ the PCs discover that the owners funeral directors have a dark secret–their adopted daughter is a ghoul and they have been feeding her parts of the corpses before replacing the missing parts with prosthetic replacements prior to the funerals
