Before You Get Started
“Exit Music” is written as a short role-playing adventure to be played out in an evening’s time. Some of the text ahead may be a bit gruesome, so be forewarned before reading ahead. The purpose is not gore, but shock and terror. This adventure can be used with either Active Exploits Diceless, Impresa Express, or Ghost Stories: Horror Mystery Adventures. All systems are quick and easy to learn and play. The first two are also freely available, while the third is reasonably priced. All of them may be downloaed from the Politically Incorrect Games website
You will also find the horor/occult supplement, The Shaded Veil, at the web site. This is available for free as well and in two different versions-Active Exploits Diceless and Impresa Express. Looking this over is optional, but certainly helpful.
This should be used as a guide for the adventure and most should be kept a secret from the players. There are also sample characters which the players may use, or they can just create their own using the desired rules set. These characters may be skilled masters of the occult or they may be average people caught in an unfortunate situation.
Best of luck.
A Note on Game Systems
Because this adventure was designed for three different game systems, there are explanations for each when necessary. Active Exploits, however, is the default system for this adventure. Active Exploits Diceless and Impresa Express use the term “director” to describe the player who referees the game. This term may be substituted for “Gamemaster”, which is the term used in Ghost Stories: Horror Mystery Adventures.
The characters are travelling together in the same car or van. Be sure to invent some convincing pretext for this trip. Skilled antioccultists may be traveling to Reulle to uncover the location of an ancient vampire; an average group of kids may be on their way to a rock concert, or perhaps even investigating some “Haunted Mansion” in Shisko Falls.
Begin travelling on some highway by night: well-lit, lined by thick forest on both sides, and mostly empty. Signs of life will continually become less frequent, until finally they come to a road barrier for “construction”. The only way to go from there will be a detour that leads to a rural dirt road.
The dirt road itself is barely one-and-a-half lanes across, lined firmly with trees on both sides. Shortly after pulling onto this road, they will meet with an accident.
