RPG Hook #4
Eveston is a town much like any other, a picturesque group of homes and shops on a hill overlooking a river flowing towards the big city. Nothing exciting or dramatic ever happened in Eveston, at least until last week. It started with the Mayor's son, waking in the middle of the night screaming bloody murder loud enough to wake the whole street, claiming to have seen someone he called "the Pale Man". The next night, whilst the Mayor's son found himself to sleep for fear of encountering the Pale Man, the entire street woke screaming, all having suffered similar nightmares ending with seeing a pale-faced monster. Within three days the entire town had suffered horrific nightmares, and now were unable to sleep. After not sleeping for five days, the town are beginning to see things that aren't there, including a pale-faced monster that doesn't seem to let the fact that he does not exist deter him from killing and maiming Eveston's citizens.
