Anyways, I've started RPing recently and i need some help fashioning together a side quest.
So far i've got a town that no one can leave and people are disappearing at night forcing the people to come together to guard each other as they sleep. Mainly in the town hall and Tavern.
Upon learning that no one can leave town, though nothing physical is stopping them, the PC's may try to leave themselves finding that a invisible barrier prevents them from leaving.
The barrier is there due to runes drawn and hidden on the edges of the town. I'm thinking perception checks and such. I've got a NPC set up to inform them where people have been taken and there names. (An ally of theirs is going to be on that list)
So, what kind of bad guy should be doing this and why? What minions should He/she/it have? Is there anything that needs editing so far?
