You got the AV club

So the first day of school we can have many outcomes depending on the players choices of course.

First Battle is going to be Gremlins sneaking in the cafeteria they appear to be looking for something.

The Gremlins were under an enchantment to search for one of the principals scrolls. This is odd with students already going missing lately.

Artificer Shop:
She'll have weapons in the making and will start on any project. You can give her materials/GP for her to make goodies! (Give out what makes sense for what is given to her.)

[center [h3 Ice Cream Shop]]
The owner of the icecream shop is Flurry an Air Djinn that loves to make ice cream. He would know of Ethan's late night singing if pressed.

First time the players come here they will run into Aurora the AV club pixie she has tangled hair thick glasses and freckles. She is eating Ice Cream you learn despite being kind hearted and a nerd she has a crush on Roth (Well can learn through conversation) you also learn he's been acting kinda weird.. More aggressive than his usual nickname "Wrath" would imply.

At night across the street of the ice cream shop you can see Ethan Walker in an abandoned warehouse with other tieflings talking.
What the players don't know is that they are there pr-acting acrobatic's cause they wanna create a circus.
Ethan Walker is caught up an an errand boy for the Purist due to meeting the demon in the shaft and making that contract. He's rather scared of the Purist and is a bit shady delinquent himself however. (Small time theft/assault etc) He's got an abusive dad and well being Tieflings they have life pretty rough.

[center [h3 Cathedral of the Divine]]

A church that accepts all the divine from every nation. Though the Knight's believe the god of Light should have it's own church as Clara helped stopped Straus from conquering the world.

Cleric Teacher Rein is also a priest here for Clara but is more laid back.

You'll see him talking with a knight about tearing down the other divines. If you'll talk to him he'll tell ya that Klaus Evergarden at the Knight's Barracks will calm them down. That despite being the most devout to Clara he is opened minded when it comes to Arcane Technology an in fact studies it. (This is a hint.)

The paladin teacher Rose can also be found here. She is a knight from Burguss and is trying to bring peace between Burguss and Straus despite the crimes of the past. She'll ask Evie if her parents ever made a "Arcana Draining" machine or took an interest in that sorta thing? (She thinks it's Evie's parents that created the papers)

[center [h3 Police Station]]

The police chief is from Straus and is a High Elf. His name is Cerron Lightwood and he is a Fighter/Rogue (LV 1 Rogue and 6 Gunslinger Fighter.) Has expertise in the investigation and insight.) If you visit the police station Cerron will say he is busy. Try to question him and he'll try and throw them off with deception. It may look like a coverup but he can't trust outsiders with the case. He is is looking into the Knight's and into Klaus but the rivalry between the two departments is rather well known and people feel Cerron is being petty in this. Even some cops feel this way.

Cop Stat Block

HP 15
AC 14
Multi Attack Pistol: D8+3 (Can fire twice)
Saving throws/Ability Checks is +2 to everything with +3 in Dex.
Initiative +3
EXP: 100

Fighters/Paladins/Barbarians/Clerics run amok here

A new captain has been appointed from Burguss Klaus Evergarden him and Cerron Lightwood have been bumping heads already.

[center [h3 Larex School of The Gifted]]

Minxi Lighterfeather but she calls herself a Tinkerblood and doesn't appreciate the change. She is a LV 5 Wizard

Larex is from Straus Haven himself and is a LV 10 Sorcerer clockwork soul and old friends with Silus the principal of Rising Dawn.

See Penelope hanging out with Minxi here!

Find posters of only one missing girl "Teresa Phial" and realize you're school has more missing students.

[center [h3 Crystal Shaft's Mine]]

Find John Wily with Spots and Aurora playing a table top game at the front of here for "Ambiance" though they do see Ethan Walker come here a lot...

In the Crystal Shaft Mine you can see the Rookie Knight and Junior detective fighting/arguing. Detective Sakimoto Sato and Even Walker. If eaves dropping can hear Sakimoto accuse Even of helping Ethan Walker bring girls here. (Ethan is a creep who brings girls but doesn't kidnap him. He meets his patron here as well.)

In the mine shaft however is an encounter! Ethan will approach with his gang and tell them to beat it. His brother won't as he suspects something as well. If Ethan is defeated before this however different encounter will ensue!

Purist will attack!

[center [h3 Brick Mortar Apartments]]

Cheap Apartments but can discover Reaper/Eugene lives here! Realize you are being followed (DC perception 14) Gremlins heading to a sewer.

Reaper is about to meet Ethan at the ice cream shop but he won't share that so easily. (Can just follow to as he seems on edge)

[center [h3 Furs and Claws hunting Gear]]

Sells Longbows/Guns/Short bows! As well as crafting components for such weapons to be modified/enchanced!

The shop that Nari works at. (They'll share stuff easier but also like no magic items in the shop lol)
Can get a free D8 pistol here though!

The dad's will warn Nari to.. Be careful of those in town.

[center [h3 Evie's Residence/Light Feathers Residence]]

Evie's parents are sweet little Gnomes!
The Tinkerbloods family.

Adva and Berry Tinkerblood
Super smart and good with tech very kind!

Minxi will be studying for Larex's prestigious school thinks Rising Dawn is for ruffians and hate they moved here with Straus being more elegant.

See in her diary (If you snoop) that she likes Jeremy Blades despite Penelope does but also.. Roth and Jeremy have been acting weird lately.

[center [h3 Drake Elementary]]

Nari's prodigal Tabaxi little brother goes here (LV 1 fighter with longbow) Drake elementary will have a sub quest of kids picking on Nari's little brother. How he handles it? Is up to him! The three kids have basic stat blocks.

[center [h3 Shimmering River]]

There is a great spot for fishing where you can see two old dwarves fishing. Ruck Earthblood and Tuck Earthblood the older dwarf twins are always fighting. They did see Reaper throwing a strange bag/sack in the river the other day. (Later revealed old girly toys he used to love playing with.)

There is also a romantic boat ride given by a Tabaxi woman. Her name is Scarlet and she used to have a thing for Violet but was rejected for Flame. She also saw Reaper do this and also seen Ethan Walker take many girls here on the boats.

If high enough perception (Reaper gets +3 stealth roll) can see that Reaper is stalking them! (Interested in Evie but won't admit it)

[center [h3 Nari's/Quickfoot/Swiftfoot Residence]]

Tabaxi hunters two fathers Flame Swiftfoot and Violet Swiftfoot
With fur matching their names

Letter is in a hidden room about their task here in the town and the adoption of Nari. How Nari's parents had left him the name Nari to be a proper elf and how his Elven father had indeed loved him but had a greater goal to pursue. His mother is still a mystery however

[center [h3 Chevalier's Manor]]

If explored there is a secret correspondence between Arthur's mother Nimue and Klaus on how to bring the police department to "Light" but Klaus is really framing Klaus Nimue doesn't know this but still sorta shady.
Arthur has an older brother and older sister both powerful Paladins.

Lance Chevalier

Gwen Chevalier

[center [h3 Sato Residence]]

Himari has her detective older brother who is snooping on her friends a file on each of them. He doesn't trust the Swiftfoot family. Nor the Chevalier's or Lightfeathers.

Swiftfoot being outsiders with strange documents.

Chevaliers being against the police department

Lightfeathers being able to use such high tech magic and the suspect taking kids fits that MO.

[center [h3 Glimmering Shield Junior High]]

A school that Burguss has taken an interest with the Sumia Shogunate. Heading here you will meet a politician from the Sumia Shogunate. Jungqwol the tortle (Really is the Shogunate can roll history to figure that out.) And wanted to see the students education. Get some Sumia lore here!

And there is a food court and higher on the second floor is high society fine dining. (50 GP per person for meal) if you eat here gain D10 inspiration but also.. You can see a weird combo of people eating here.
Reaper/Eugene and Ethan Walker? What could those two have to talk about? (If one is dead give the player some kinda hint here of any kind)

In the mall can run into the Artificer teacher (Solice Geyser) Trying to get supplies! Also Roll D20 for another teacher encounter!

[center [h3 Crystal Loft Cemetery]]

This is where Reaper spends most of his time, he also has a pet cat (Black Cat) named "Darkness" that he feeds here. The ground keeper Andrew Veiss isn't sure how to handle the kid pestering him constantly. Though he does say that he's been rather.. Busy and odd as of late. That he heard him talking to a tiefling lately.

If LV 3 with some "Clues" will get attacked by the undead and a purist! The purist using those same pages from before. The purist if interrogated will tell you a cloaked but heavily armored man has been there contact here.

[center [h3 Brightshard Bank]]

Not much to do in the bank this arc. You will run into Ethan Walker making a large withdraw (Before heading back to abandoned Factory)
Or if that is done Ethan will be doing so heading to the sewer Gremlin Encounter.

[center [h3 Lost Haven Forest]]

This is where the machine is kept but without enough clues the players won't find it. However you do see Jeremy and Roth here sparring and practicing. If you eavedrop Jeremy admits to Roth that Ethan's been creeping him out and that he tried taking Penelope to the mine. Also that Jeremy's dad has been donating a lot of money into the Knight's lately even his college fund but he has a sports scholarship at least.

Have a basic encounter here maybe? Or even fight those two if they seem fishy enough.

[center [h3 Abandoned Factory, Grand Spire Factory]]

This place seems extremely abandoned however there is a "Prototype" of the machine hear. Arcana Drainer but the name is "Arcana Fulldrive" that by using other arcana and using transumation to convert the power and necromancy to drain the magic. (Need Arcana to understand this.) There is Draconic,Dwarven,Goblin,Elvish the Arcana helps with the schools but as for the instructions either need help or comrehnd languages. It says that this is the prototype and the real machine must be somewhere secluded.

Get into a fight with machines powered by this prototype!

[center [h3 On The Rocks Tavern]]

See the monk teacher here drinking! As well as well as a Monk student drinking a cola. Danny Hail seems pumped that he got to meet a certain "Tortle" at the "other" academy.

Old School Quest Board.
Use Kobold and NPC generator to create two quest/encounters on the board. (Quest will dry up at times) can eat and drink here as well! Eating the fine meal for 10GP restores one hit dice! (Can only do this once a day)

Here is also the "Garage" which serves as a sort of DMV. Gareth will offer lessons if they pay/persuade otherwise nah on the whole car.
Used car is 500GP

Nicer cars have different cost. If you ask questions about people who'll have a surprising amount of info.. For a price. He isn't a fan of cops or knights due to all the drama however.

[center [h3 Michael Bee's Diner]]

Eating a nice meal for 10GP restores a hit die (Can stack with the other meal in the tavern.)

See the Druid teacher Lux on a date with Klaus the Knight! If asked she will say he seems serious and more stressed.. (If prompted properly of course.)

Klaus appears distracted by his crystal rather often however.

Visiting here can gain other random NPC encounters.

[center [h3 Hunting Grounds]]

Heading to the hunting grounds during the day will run into Nari's little brother hunting with his dads! If hunt along Nari will gain D10 inspiration and restore a hit dice if he is missing one.

In the hunting grounds you'll see the Ranger Teacher out and about hunting! Can talk to him and he'll share that he feels the artificer teacher has been kinda fishy..

Where arrested enemies go for the player.

See the Artificer here? She is visiting another half tabaxi male? (Old lover who got in with the wrong crowd) she will tell him she feels cornered by Klaus and isn't sure what to do.

[center [h3 Daylight Park]]

Great bonding place! Can run into the Druid teacher here prancing and playing about (Despite her age) she seems.. To be picking flowers happy. (Excited about her date with Klause at the diner.) She tells you the park is lovely during the day but to be careful about shady folk at night.

Night time
LV 3 encounter

[center [h3 Notes]]

Probably Add NPC homes and more places later for sure.

[center [h3 NPC's]]

[center [h3 Arc 1 The Mystery/Story]]

The cafeteria Investigation scene

Perception: Find the pieces in the cauldrin and weird snacks with a paper like texture?

Investigation: You find the "Snacks" to be magical pieces of parchment. The parchment have Transmutation and Necromancy magic in equal parts. With a high enough Arcana check you can see that the magic appears to be from different sources in the papers and you get a reminder of Necromancy and Transumutation. Necromancy can change the flow and drain power while Tranmutation can change it's current nature.

In the cauldren is a pieces of a letterman jacket, Roth is missing pieces of his jacket if you see him. Also you see more of these papers in that cauldren but don't seem as powerful or unstable as the ones he ate.

Teachers will enter. Fighter Teacher and Wizard Teacher along with the coach (A big buff human guy. Coach Gerald Walker, Adopted father of Ethan Walker.) If the students stay behind the Wizard will say it looks the paper drained magic from others while the Fighter will blame the wizard for helping the Artificer create that "Infernal" machine.

A few students have gone missing from a few academies they all appear to have magical ability.

Cerron Lightwood will be on the scene to and will wanna question the students. (He'll roll investigation on the scene and insight on the students deception.) He'll ask about their home life and the fight and what they had experienced things like that.

The vice principal comes from the Sumia Shogunate making him prime suspect as some believe that White Haven though funded by many is Straus Haven's pride and joy over the other kingdoms.

Another suspect is Evan Walker a junior tiefling in the so called "Warlock" class. Flirting with some of the new freshman girls, though a delinquent and charming he only knows a few things going on. The use of Gremlins and his contact is in the dance club.

The DJ Jonathon Shore is a former pirate and is accepting work from this group they are known as the "Purist." Jonathon did it for the money but Evan.. Was afraid.

Evan Walker had taken a patron from a locked fiend in the Crystal Shaft Mines.

The purist are taking students with raw magical talent but why?

The wizard teach knows that the Artificer teacher has a device or a scroll that can be powered by magic. To help those lacking magic and improve technology with the power of the arcane.

Flame and Violet are rangers/hunters from Starkwood making their home here. At least that is the cover story they are really from the Sumia Shogunate there to keep an eye on White Haven. They had adopted a son as a way to fit in but fell in love with their son becoming true fathers. Still however they hid this truth from him.

The lightfeathers (Tinkerblood's) Are engineers from Strause Haven here to make a peaceful life with their daughter. However they were sent a warning letter from the Imperial Court to watch out for the FleetFoots

The Chevaliers are a noble family from the Kingdom of Burguss to observe the knight barrack's in White Haven and to prove the new and modern police force aren't needed.

The Sato family though they moved to Sumia had grown up in the Starkwood where all manner of Fey live peaceful lives. Himari engages in underground fights as she had enjoyed when her political family visited Terra. She had become a Twilight Cleric in Sumia while studying the god of Wisdom and tranquility Sapientia.

The purist were the ones that sealed the Demon.. Agathar in the mines his memories are hazy but he remembers.. Another life almost.

The Purist are kidnapping more and more students. As time passes Reaper Will look more tired and pale at school as Evan becomes more scarce. Roth the orc will still be a pain while Jeremy Blades and Penelope Drake will be focused on making prom queen and king.

The artificer's teachers were used and the police may slowly figure out the Purist may have ties to the old radicals of the previous Empire. The old regime of Strause Haven. The artificer's family was part of that regime with her tools made to sap those with arcane tools she'll be a prime suspect.

However Klaus Evergarden who the Blade Blitz coach is old friends with is behind framing her. His plan was not only to prove that the purist are Straus's fault but to rile Burguss into war to finish what they started. To wipe Strause out and make them pay for their sins and the lives they had taken. He is also close to the Chevalier family. Klaus has spent time in Starkwood as well being a Paladin of the Ancients he is a knight of Burguss however through and through. Some of his knight's are in it but not all of them.

NPC Generator (And quest) generator!
Link for one just in case!

[ Linky!]

May have to wing it sometimes! And that is okay!

End of the arc will have a LV 4/5 encounter

If is a school day you get 2.

[center [h3 Revamped Arc 1]]

Ethan Walker is taking distance from Evan Walker. Ethan Walker has been talking to Reaper/Eugene lately. The both of them have been caught/cornered by purist and now talk to one another often.
Ethan has made a pact with a Demon at the Mines.
Agathar, a demon that has vague memories of a past life. Crude but not entirely cruel and was trapped in a sapphire by the purist.
