Plot Hooks

This week has been a bit rushed and stressful so there is no TitansGrave. Instead, here is a list of plot hooks to inspire your own games and stories.

Feel free to share around, use, distribute in any way. If you do, please give credit where it is due.



Generic Hooks

As if preparing for the festival weren’t hard enough, a third woman has gone missing this month.

Fantasy Hooks

Sci-fi Hooks
