THE TIP OF THE TRIANGLE
There's a killer on the loose in Signal Lakes…and for once, it's a human, not a paranormal creature.

Well, it's a spell-caster, which certain bigoted hunters don't think qualify as human, but unlike creatures that are actually paranormal, casters can ignore a red rowan wood barrier, even if their magics can't cross one.


Whoever this killer is, they've claimed at
least five victims so far, and there will be a minimum of two more, if someone doesn't stop the murderer.


You know the killer is a caster because of the nature of the killings…they're ritual sacrifices. And not just any sort of ritual either, not just a victim tied down to an altar or in a magical circle with their throat slashed or set on fire or whatever; this killer is using a very specific method, a triple death. The victims are all tied to a tree or post, upside-down with their head in a bucket of water, set on fire, and have their chests cleaved with some kind of axe or hatchet. That is some
seriously black magic; this killer is putting in tremendous effort and pulling out all the stops to fuel an incredibly powerful spell.


  ..The question is, what's the spell for…and how many more victims does it need....



The Tip of the Triangle is a one-shot scenario for I Was A Teenage Creature, the first part of the Trapped In The Triangle Trilogy. It is not at all required to play all three parts; each scenario is a stand-alone adventure, forming one part of an interconnected storyline. Playing in all three will give you the big picture, but you won't need the whole story to understand the portion you're playing. In this session, the Player Characters have all noticed that a paranormal killer is gathering power in Signal Lakes, and they're the only ones who may be able to stop the sacrifices....

IWATC is a narrative-focused urban fantasy RPG where it doesn't matter how strong your werewolf is, or how fast his vampire is, or how beautiful her fae is…what matters is how these characters feel, what drives them to do things, not how inherently capable they are of accomplishing them. What keeps the viewers of Buffy or Teen Wolf or any other young-adult urban fantasy show coming back every episode? Is it the Monster of the Week? No, it's the angst and drama of the young adult characters' lives, how they face the paranormal shinola they're wrapped up in. Come play a character that could star on such a show, and see how their angst and emotions drive their story.

Player characters in IWATC each have a Trope, summing up who they are or what purpose they serve in the story. If you get a character sheet that says "Ditzy Cheerleader" or "Computer Nerd", you already know how to play that character. The rest is figuring out what it means when your Trope is a Werewolf, or a Ghost, or a Hunter, or whatever.

As stated before, I Was A Teenage Creature is a narrative-focused game, using a fairly simple Success-based d10 system. Just bring a handful of d10s and be prepared to get into character and consider your character's motivations, and you'll have a blast exploring what it means to be a Teenage Creature.
