This month’s adventure was strongly inspired by a blog entry posted on Siskoid Blog of Geekery (check the site out it has some great write ups). The original post Adventure Seed: Burning Police-boxes told of the Hibiya Riots in Tokyo following the Russo-Japanese war in the early 1900s when protestors and rioters burned police-boxes.
The adventure; The Riot is set during this period during the riots. It is written in the style of the First Doctor where player characters will be exploring alien cultures rather than stopping alien threats. Though intended to be a First Doctor adventure it could be easily adapted for any other time traveler crew.
Along with The Riot I have also uploaded Prelude, a supplement for The Riot to introduce the Doctor’s Granddaughter Donna to the Temporal Masters campaign. The Prelude is intended to be used as a prelude to the adventure where the Doctor meets his granddaughter and invites her into the Tardis. Included in the supplement is background on Donna and a character sheet so she can be played as a PC. Including Donna in The Riot is intended to mirror the First Doctor and Susan’s adventures and it will foreshadow things to come in the campaign.
Feel free to use the adventure in your next game and if you have any comments or feedback you may have.
