GM's Map 58: Art Centre
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.
Art is often said to be what sets humanity aside from other animals. The creative impulse of humanity has brought us painting¸ sculpture¸ music¸ dance¸ drama and photography. We love to decorate our environments and for a great many people the act of creating the art is as important as the art itself.
An arts centre is a type of community centre which is specifically geared towards promoting artistic endeavours. They provide theatre space¸ artists studios and workshops¸ classrooms¸ display space and form a place where creative people can come tougher to create works of art and performance.
This product includes a single level Arts Centre¸ complete with a key and text describing what art centres are and how they differ in different parts of the world. Also¸ included are a selection of adventure hooks to help you drop your art centre into your campaign or build an adventure around it.
1/. Roger That (Post Apocalyptic)
Civilisation has been crumbling since the apocalypse. A group of survivors at the radio station have been trying to keep the airwaves alive in order to get news out to other survivors. The problem is that as some of their equipment is damaged and they can only patch it together so often. The Arts centre has at least some of what they need if they can get it. The arts centre may be overrun by zombies¸ creatures of the Other-Verse or other survivors. If it is in the hands of survivors¸ might they be willing to make a deal or will they be hostile?
2/. Art Forgery (Crime and Mystery)
An artist renting a studio in the arts centre is making forgeries. If the centre management finds out the artist will be ejected immediately. The party may be investigating the forgeries or maybe the forgers trying to avoid discovery.
Perhaps the forgery is going to be the focus of another crime¸ a con job perhaps and the PCs are the grifters or the marks.
3/. Windows to the World (Supernatural)
An artist working out of-the-art centre has found a way to paint pictures that can be used to transport the observer to the places in the picture.
