Hi, all! I’m working on putting together a comedy one-off based on the Dancing Plague of 1518 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dancing_plague_of_1518), an event during which a bunch of people danced so hard and for so long that most of them died of exhaustion.
I’ve got a pretty good idea of how the countdown is going to go and some ideas for custom moves that’ll involve the hunters having to act under pressure to resist dancing, but…I don’t have a monster! Does anyone either a) know of any monsters from folklore that could conceivably cause an event like this; or b) have any advice on how to create a monster that’s actually a “virus”? I’m open to any suggestions, really.
Thanks in advance! And if anyone has already run a game based on this, I’d love to hear about it!
